Default Titans-Colts agreement collusion fears

Titans-Colts ‘agreement’ raises collusion fears
QB says Indy coaches told Tennessee they wouldn't call TO to force punt

MSNBC News Services
updated 23 minutes ago

Did Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans coaches have an under-the-table agreement at the end of last Sunday's game?

Tennessee quarterback Kerry Collins said on WFAN Radio that the Titans kneeled at the end of the game Sunday because they knew the Colts wouldn't call a timeout, Rotoworld.com reported Thursday.

With Tennessee leading 16-10 and needing a victory to make the playoffs, the Titans had originally called a running play, Collins said, Rotoworld reported. But the team changed to a kneeldown when he was told over his headset that the Colts wouldn't call a timeout, which would have possibly forced the Titans to punt with less than 20 seconds left in the game, Collins said, Rotoworld reported.

The Colts and Titans coaches had "an agreement," Collins said on WFAN, Rotoworld reported.

If true, the Cleveland Browns could possibly file a grievance alleging collusion, which is against NFL rules. The Browns would have made the playoffs if the Titans had lost.

It'll be a hefty fine for both teams and maybe a loss of draft picks if they can prove it happened.

And I guess ridding one's self of video tapes and notes of 31 other teams is ok?

If these two teams get an equal or heavier fine than what the patriacheats got, then it will be more proof that the league is rigged for the patriacheats to win it all!!!

How's that? To me, this is far worse than anything New England did. This challenges the very integrity of the game. Personally I'm shocked that Tony Dungy would be even remotely involved in anything this underhanded. I really don't what to believe it happened, but if it did the NFL needs to send a clear message that you don't do things like this on the field of play.

And the Patriots cheated, everyone is on steroids, their are bounties being placed every week and the Winter Classic was 'fixed'... Nothing will come of this more than speculation.

I think the Titans are being stupid and trying to turn nothing into something....or Tony Dungy simply hates the Browns as much as the rest of the world.

These accusations will disapear pretty quick. Unless there was money involved I don't see how this is a big deal. The Colts obviously want the Chargers out of the way and think the Titans have a better shot at beating them than the Browns.

The last statement is out there but your first assessment is correct. Teams can do whatever they want and justify it as long as cheating or $$ wasn't a part of the deal. If a team doesn't want to call a timeout with that little a chance of scoring they don't have too. Not wanting to risk injury is even a valid excuse. This will be forgotten fast.
