    I would love a draft lottery IF it wasn't rigged.

    I think the NBA's is rigged.

    If you read the following quote -- They tanked... How? They rotated young guys in to give them a look. Had they actually been trying to win the game, they would have left the starters out on the field.

    [​IMG]I don't think anybody tanked it. We played the guys we played to rotate guys in to give them a look. As far as players are concerned, the draft and that stuff isn't relevant to us.

    They tanked the moment they announced Josh McCown as their starter this year.

    They likely did, sure looks that way. That said, honestly I think I'd rather the #2, ONLY because it will save the FO from themselves. If they had the first, maybe taking Mariota is too compelling. If the bucs take him, maybe they'll be more inclined to trade back, or go non-QB with their top pick. It's what I'm hoping for at least.

    I was hoping Idzik would have one more year in NY. Not care about the future so give up the farm for the #2 and a chance at a QB to save his job. Oh well.

    Yeah the "Hot coach" everyone wanted tanked the final game.

    Do you guys really think New Orleans wanted to win that game too? No they didn't. Why would they want to have to deal with someone like Mariota for years to come. No way division rivals want to see a team in their division get the player they are drooling over.

    The players are going to play if they want to play. A lot of them actually do want to win and perform well... either because they are fighting to keep their job or to get a better contract.

    Players don't care much about the draft.

    Coaches can't tell their players to lose and expect to be respected.

    Yup, this right there. That's the only explanation for starting McCown over Glennon.

    Glennon is the better QB by far, a player who threw for 19 TDS / 9 INTs and almost beat Seattle on the road (throwing 2 TD / 0 INT) in his rookie year. This year he threw for 10 TD / 6 INT in 5.5 games. Those are great TD numbers, bad INT numbers... but far better than McCown was doing.

    Would love to see the Titans trade for Glennon.
