Discussion or beating a dead horse in the name of ridiculous conspiracy theories? The idea of the organization tanking to get Luck is idiotic at best. The number of people and egos that would have to be put in check to make this happen, along with several other uncontrollable variables not to mention the rammifications of attempting such a move pretty much guarantee its not going to happen. So there is no discussion. Its a ridiculous thought / notion.
And the idea that the Front Office doesn't care about winning is absurd. The Yorks care about money. Common sense dictates that winning makes you more money than losing. You along with many others can't seem to grasp the concept that running a football organization is not exactly an easy thing to do. If it was, all 32 teams would be in contention every year. Running a football organization is not easy and not everyone is qualified to do so. The Yorks are business people, and have attempted to run the organization as such. They are finally realizing that it can't be run that way. You can't treat it like a corporation such as Verizon, FedEx, etc. Do they know what they are doing? No. But to say they don't care is asanine, because to do so would to be to say they don't want to make money and the Yorks didn't get rich with such attitudes. "I don't care" doesn't get you very far. It does appear that they are attempting to adjust and get the ship righted. Otherwise they wouldn't have given Jim Harbaugh a big ass contract, they would have hired someone on the cheap like they did previously.
Try posting a legitimate topic for discussion and the flaming might stop.
