    They earned that #1 pick. Titans earned the #2 by beating a somewhat legitimate team,first game of the season.

    It was a tough race to get #1. Bucs did it better.

    At least we did the "long con" for our tank... Bucs did it in a half.

    Yes. Didn't even need to put a rumor tag on this.

    Most obvious tank I've ever seen.

    IMO they were holding onto hope that the Colts would play their entire 2nd unit and we'd pull off the upset... Once they saw we were down 20-10, they realized what needed to be done.

    We deserve the #1 pick for sucking way more than they did though. They were far more competitive for the most part.

    Most obvious tank ever. Benched David, benched Evans, threw only 2 passes after going up 20-7. Pathetic.

    Hands down, we sucked more. They definitely tanked, and they need a QB horribly. I actually kind of like having the #2 pick better.

    At first I was a little down about not having the first overall pick, then I figured when was the last time the first overall pick was traded? The second pick overall for what ever reason seems to be more consistently traded...

    Exactly!!! Also less pressure to take Mariota. They are honestly in the drivers seat....Trade back, take best Defense talent in Williams/Gregory, Cooper, Winston, etc....

    Hopefully this will lead to a draft lottery.
