Did the Indy Colts lay down last year so they could draft Andrew Luck?
I always believe you can not tell a competitor to lose whether it is a player or coach, but looking back on how they played last season and how they are playing this year it makes me doubt my traditional beliefs here.

yes, they did.

IMO the colts quit last year. I've been on a team that quit early in the season before and we had the talent to be 6 or 7 win team ad make the playoffs but end up winning 4 games. And 2 of those wins were gimmes.
Had the colts not quit they could have won 4-7 games depending how the cards fell.
This was really a huge slap in P. Manning's face IMO as well. I know it is a business and respect the decisions that are made, but I believe their minds were made up on what they were going to do no less than mid-season.

They actually beat the Texans late in the year last year.
On Sports Center they said it was the first time ever a 2-10 team beat a 10-2 team ( or what ever their records were , they were flip/flopped)
I don't know how anyone could honestly think this is the case. People honestly think that a person like Jim Caldwell puts his career on the line...one he has been working on his whole life so that others can benefit? The players on the team then play down to a low level so that the team can then fire them and get new players?
This whole concept blowss my mind. There is absolutely nothing positive that can happen for the people that lay it on the line everyday. That is the coaches and players. There is no way they throw their careeers down the drain so the organization that is going to get rid of them can benefit.
That is like an employee at a company intentionally sucking so that the company they work for can benefit only so the company can fire them and then make all the money.
This would amount to the biggest conspiracy theory ever. Mind blowing.
