Win or Lose?


So it comes down to this: one last game. sixty minutes that determine whether the Colts get the #1 pick or the #2 pick. The Vikings lost, so there are only four possible scenarios with two possible endings:

1. The Colts and Rams both lose. The Colts get #1 pick.

2. The Colts and Rams both win: The Colts get #1 pick.

3. The Colts lose, the Rams win: the Colts get #1 pick.

4. The Colts win, the Rams lose: the Rams get #1 pick.

Given his willingness to not try to win when it doesn't matter (see: 2009 season), why would Bill Polian attempt to win the game next week against the Jaguars? If you ask me, we should sit our starters and play scrubs to ensure the #1 draft pick. If we win, sure, we'll all feel good for a few days, but then our season is over, and what do we have to look forward to? The #2 pick in the draft.

I say that in a season of 13 losses and 2 wins, one more loss isn't going to change anything except for the potential to set us up for either our next franchise QB, or trading Luck for a bunch of picks to rebuild.

I've been rooting for the Colts all season. Next Sunday I will be rooting for them to lose. Not for today, not for tomorrow, but for next year and the years to come.
