All I have to say is, "WTF? I mean, WTFF?"
I do think that would be the ultimate Eff-you. But, it wouldn't be fair to his players, or the fans, or the game, all of which I believe he respects.
It's actually a pretty funny scenario, quite congruent with the team's GFY NFL season. I've fantasized similar outcomes myself. The reason it will forever be fantasy is that BB is a quiet history student of the game. Other teams won multiple SB, while NOBODY ever went 16-0, 19-0.
EDIT: and I agree with the prior post that it would be blatantly unfair to the players
Why do we play (sorry, i just love that qoute)?
No, its more like come Super Bowl, as Dustin Pedroia would say, we will see a laser show.
I think we have another one for the "You know your team is good when..." thread.
Yeah... Great thinking "Z", lets intentionally throw a game. Nothing says "classy" like tanking a game.
I think Z has switched from wine to absinthe spiked with mescaline.
Tanking the game and letting the other team win on purpose isn't so much an F-You as it is just a dumb thing to do in the first place. It's not going to happen.
i actually like that idea if the nfl promotes the game like anything but BB wont do it because he would want to keep a winning momentum. otherwise it would be an ultimate eff you to march down the field to the goal line and take a knee 3 times everytime.
I couldn't believe this nutjob, this is the knucklehead that Fat Peter King professes so much respect for? Just head-shaking!
Never going to happen. Z's been hitting the zinfadel a little hard this season, it appears, getting an early start on Thanksgiving, I imagine. The clock keeps ticking.
But.... no. BB wants *ALL* marbles, as does Brady and most of the other regulars. They want it ALL.
And I hope they get it.
Looks like they deserve each other, they way they talk. Ah, the press. It's all a dark incestuous group, anyway.
And we think kicking FGs or taking the knee would be insulting to the Giants?
Fantasy ........ pure fantasy.
how about, we play our second string the whole first half and let the Giants score as much as they can then in the second half put in the starters to finish and win by 14 still! that would be the big #($*@!
I do think we tanked a game once. A couple years ago. Nothing will convince me otherwise.
Cassell out of the back of the EZ in the Drop kick game?? Nah...
So, the turkey we decided on didn't go "Gobble, gobble, gobble." It went "Goodell, Goodell, Goodell" and made use of the ole chopping block extra special.
I actually see Belichick playing to win the final game (if we go 15-0), then after that (if we go 16-0), he's going to tell team: "16-0? Big [bleeping] deal. That means nothing. That's not going to win you the next game. Can I get a Hallelujah?"
on the topic of the nfl promoting the game...has it dawned on people yet that, unless you have a dish, outside of the Boston and New York (admittedly large) media markets, this game will be seen by Bryant Gumbel's relatives and the other 25 subscribers to the NFL network? the game won't be on cable in football crazy markets like chicago, Philly, Pittsburgh, the Bay Area, Florida and Texas plus all the states "between the coasts." It won't be on cable in Miami itself, the city with the greatest stake in the outcome of the game outside of New England.
It wont even be shown in NE (outside of Boston) unless you have the NFL Network (which thankfully I do).
I live out of market, but that's what sports bars are for.
