[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Dear Underdoggg... : Well, I would disagree and state that you are the dumb one. Most teams would play the best QB available. Are you telling me they didn't know who the best QB was? What about FA, QB's? Did they pick the best one there? Nope and nope. It is very likely that management intentionally did this not unlike when they purposely tanked the perfect season by not playing the best QB. See how that works? They played the relic and the relic went down, then they played the worst QB possible for 10 more games. Then they finally put in the better QB when it was determined they could actually win 2 games and not loose the Prize. Why not change QB's half way through the season when their record was 0/8? Sooner would have been better since he was doing such a marvelous job. LOL Pretty simple, isn't it? The rest of the team just had the misfortune of playing with the worst QB possible. Can't really blame them if all their efforts were in vein.

I think the colts thought they were playing the best QB available. They thought Collins would be that guy as a longtime NFL starter. More poise, experience, knowledge, etc. Didn't happen. I don't fault them for trying. For example, Belichick drafted Chad Jackson at the top of the round. He was wrong. I wouldn't consider him dumb for being wrong. Apparently, you thought Jesus was running the colts. Hate to disappoint you on that one.
Polian has said that the colts tried to get Hasselbeck but he wanted a better opportunity. Polian knew Collins - drafted Collins. Collins played for Caldwell at Penn State. See the connections. I'll forgive you if its lost on you.
I see that the idea of tanking is fully lost on you, as well. What I stated regarding the players also applies to the management and coaches. Their jobs are (were) on the line. Their mistakes cost them their jobs. I am sorry that you don't get this. I know socialism is a prevalent concept in MA, but the state is still a part of the US, and performance still matters.
For the record, the colts changed starters twice during the season, first after 3 games, then after 11 games.
Buck up kiddo. Logic is learned. You'll get there.
