    I'm with NH on this, I hate our QB situation. I wanted and still want Jake to live up to his potential. BUT, he is a complete bust at this point. I know our options for a FA QB were limited by a shallow pool of available guys and I didn't want us take one early in the draft. BUT again, Charlie F***ing Whitehurst?

    It's nice that he is familiar with KW's system and is willing to be a coach to Jake but I want to win dammit. QB was our biggest need heading into this off-season and I think we screwed the pooch. We are going to live or die with Jake this year and I do understand the logic, I just wish we would have done more to improve at the QB spot. It'd be really disappointing if all areas of the team improve to a playoff level and then our QB situation holds us back to another 8-8 season.

    If you guys remember the Rams that season only won like 3 games, and I believe would have won the Tiebreaker having lost more games in their own division, so if the Colts had won just 1 more game, they dont get Andrew Luck. If the team wanted to make sure they got Luck, then they wouldnt have put out a great team those last games in order to win the games. Coaches dont always know they are being fired at the season end, if the brace yes, hey we want that Andrew Luck guy to replace Peyton, then they were truly going to do everything they could to win a meaningless game.

    Why else were fans making signs that said "Suck for Luck", and if an Andrew Luck type QB was coming out of college in 2015 draft, I might agree with the logic this year. But I dont know if there is one. So I am not on board with what seems to be the strategy this season.

    ???????????????

    yeah I have never seen a time the Titans were the worst team in the NFL

    I have seen the worst D in the history of the franchise and it was not fun at all

    I have no desire to watch the worst team in the NFL

    In Donald Brown's defense Irsay could have been tweaking

    Because fans are idiots. Do you honestly believe Caldwell ad Painter conspired to throw the season? Give me a break. You don't make it to that level without an extremely competitive nature. You would be hard pressed to find a player on that team that would tank a game of UNO.

    Yep.

    I mean... Painter sucks and Caldwell might suck. He did suck, at the time.

    Colts were just incredibly unprepared for the event that Manning couldn't be the QB.
