You bet you @$$ they are. They make it entertaining for the 1st half and then an all out collapse in the 2nd half. Why? Because they have too. They were told by management to do so. Yeah its hard to watch. They make it look pretty in the 1st half, but then they go vanilla the rest of way bull$hit!. I watched every ****ing single game this year and its the same ****ing thing every week. So yes sir! They are purposely losing games there is no if's, there is no ands, and there is no buts about it. If anyone can't see it their blind. Plus, the staff is in on it too and Flores and his staff are actors in it. But, they had no ****ing idea it was going to be like this. Plus, their are a lot of terrible teams this year and they were not expecting teams to do similar **** like we are doing but, in a casual disguised way (BENGALS, YETS (they should not count because they always suck and have sucked since 1969), FALCONS, BRONCOS, BROWNS, and REDSKINS and us are all competing for #1 its the goddamn truth. Plain and simple. But, too many bottom dwellers this year and its scaring all of them because they want TUA. There is no way around it. You have to suck the worse in order to do so. But, is it right? **** no!! Because there no guarantees in this sport or any other sport period.
