...They take out their best players in the third quarter and blow their unbeaten season, their unbeaten regular-season streak, and in the process, take a steaming **** on all the fans that paid to watch that joke of a game (not to mention the millions of fans watching on TV), and may have just fucked another team out of their rightful shot at the playoffs by letting the lowly Jets beat them.


If the other team needed the Colts to do anything at this point, then they didn't have any sort of a rightful shot at playoffs. A 16-game season is punishing and the very last thing a team in the Colts' position needs would be to get any key player hurt in a meaningless game just prior to playoffs. Any other team in the league would do the same thing.

this will only stir the pot more.

not good news for the patsies...

Welker leaves with left knee injury

"New England Patriots receiver Wes Welker injured his left knee in the first quarter of Sunday’s game in Houston and the team said he will not return.

Welker caught a pass from Tom Brady on New England’s first possession and his knee appeared to buckle as he turned upfield. Trainers helped Welker off the field and he was taken to the locker room on a cart."

@Rockhead,
C'mon Rockhead. Star players NEVER get hurt in meaningless week 17 games.

@Rockhead,
Uh oh, was Henne hurt? I almost put him in as my QB in fantasy today. Off to check it out.

Checked. Yikes.

Commissioner Roger Goodell says the NFL will consider offering incentives to teams playing late-season games
to discourage them from resting their starters for the playoffs.

Goodell said the league was sensitive to criticism of the Indianapolis Colts’ decision to use backups a week ago
in a game they lost, ending their bid for a perfect season.

“It is something we’ll look at,’’ Goodell said yesterday. “We heard the fans loud and clear. We want every game
to be competitive.’’

The league’s position has been that playoff-bound teams enjoy the right to rest their starters to prepare for
the postseason. Goodell said he didn’t blame the Colts for their decision. Goodell said various incentives
to prevent teams from benching starters will be considered. Such incentives could include awarding draft choices.

“We are considering a lot of different things,’’ Goodell said in an interview with CBS. “I don’t think you can
punish them for not playing.’’

Kicky must be screaming mad at the Bengals for carrying the Jets into the playoffs, so that they'd face them instead of the surging Steelers next week. I'm baffled that the Jets were only favored by 8 points last week (this strategy was too obvious)... but not terribly surprised they're dogs this week against the same team.

@kickycan,
It is a business as in an entertainment business and as such blowing an undefeated season is not good entertainment or business in my opinion.

@BillRM,
Yeah, it must be much better to lose one of the best WR in the game right now, like the Patriots did, in a meaningess game.

Winning the superbowl is always good entertainment and business, in everyone's opinion. The Colts did what they thought they had to do to meet that goal.

Yeah, those 80-14 point games in college ball are a lot more interesting.

Maybe they would have, maybe they wouldn't. I still hate this strategy. Have you ever heard of a team losing a big player in a meaningless game that ended up messing up their chances in the playoffs? Has it ever actually happened?


It's like you could see the future Kicky....see Wes Welker last week.

You're a genius.
