    They need a QB bad. They will probably start tanking to get at least a top 3 pick.

    Thats not a moral dillema at all.

    A meaningless win vs you guys puts us at 4 wins, which could potentially knock us out of the top 5.

    Going 3-13 could get us the number 2 pick and gives a legit shot to make a move with Indy for the top pick, or have options at number 2 with whichever QB we want

    Its not even a question for me what I want to happen. Knowing my luck, the Redskins play the best game of the season on Sunday

    Any gutless team that loses games on purpose have problems that a top 5 pick will not help.

    Well, I admire your honesty, if not your motives. Hopefully we'll get you a little closer to that prized pick Sunday afternoon.

    The players won't ever "lose on purpose" Neither will the organization.

    Being out manned isn't tanking.

    What the Colts are doing is tanking. This group hasn't tanked at all. They just are not good enough

    What fans want is completely different.

    You always try to win the game...although if they lose to Dallas it will not hurt my feelings. :D

    Absolutley, as they should. I expect an excellent effort, just not an excellent result.

    Guys like London Fletcher, Laron Landry, DeAngelo Hall, Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerring aren't the "lay down" type. They'll play real hard. They just don't have the guns to get it done, and the team will be much better off for it in April.

    Oh, the players will no doubt try to win a rivalry game, but the fans are another matter.

    I guess it is a moral dilemma, but after the Penn State story, seems a bit trivial in the moral sense.

    But they won't tank the game. NFL teams don't tank games.

    Teams may not start given players to give them rest (for the playoffs), or the team may decide to start a youth movement (and play inexperienced players), but teams generally don't tank games for draft position.

    Danny is saving a special autographed and slightly used urinal mint just for you, because you are so important to the team winning. ;) :p:

    They should play to win. Especially considering it's the Cowboys. Doesn't matter because there's no chance in hell the Skins win.

    They don't have to tank. They're that bad.

    Of course, as we learned on this board last December, if they happen to win enough to barely miss out on a great QB for the next decade, it's worth it because there's no such thing as a meaningless win. :cool:
