There is tremendous speculation over the draft situations of the league’s bottom dwellers. There are many squads fighting for first place in their race for the bottom. The tiebreaker system will soon come into play after the completion of week seventeen comes to a close in the NFL.

The NBA lottery was implemented to keep clubs from trying to lose at the end of their regular seasons in order to ensure a better pick. This has been a complete disaster because certain teams have consistently not been awarded what they deserve while others like Orlando have been extremely fortunate. Anyway, I have some ways for a proper tiebreaker to occur.

Indianapolis Colts Are Right to Stick with Jim Caldwell

More than a week removed from the Indianapolis Colts’ season-ending 17-16 loss to the New York Jets in a wild-card playoff game at Lucas Oil Stadium, much has been made about why the team did not advance further into the postseason and about what it should do this offseason.

A good portion of those discussions has involved Colts coach Jim Caldwell and his questionable timeout with 29 seconds remaining in the game. The Jets were aiming to get in field-goal range, and Caldwell’s timeout was followed by New York quarterback Mark Sanchez’s 18-yard pass down the sideline to receiver Braylon Edwards that set up kicker Nick Folk’s game-winning 32-yard field goal. Folk had been shaky at best from long range all season.

The timeout drew the ire of Colts fans, many of whom began calling for Caldwell to be fired immediately after the loss.

Let’s be frank. That’s not going to happen this offseason.
