THe New York Giants completely stink up the NFL, and could have easily finished the season as the worst team in the NFL.
THe Buffalo Bills were so insistent this year, they made John Kerry look steadfast.
The New York Jets started the season positive, but then collapsed under the weight of playing teams over 500.
As the end of the season approached, the NFL realized it wouldn't a team from New York in the playoffs. In a panic, after realizing they would be losing out on millions of advertising dollars and viewership, the NFL does the unthinkable. A phone call to the Colts, asking them to give up their perfect season by allowing the Jets a win. Next, the number 2 seed gets a call, and Cincinatti is asked to fold.
Who gets hurt? Besides the fans that pay good money to watch good football, fantasy football players, gamblers, and fans of the Texans, Steelers, Broncos, and any other team that fought hard and won, only to have it taken away; stolen, if you will.
I'm curious, Mr. Goodell, what does it cost to buy a playoff win these days? Or, could it be that after the Texans whooped the Colts up and down the field, and beat the Bengals outright, that they decided to roll over so they wouldn't have to face them in the playoffs?
