I doubt any of it is true simply for the fact that the Jags were already in as the 5th seed. Now the colts just "let" the titans in .... I'm sure that just what they wanted....2 wild card teams from their own division. I think Dungy just wanted to get out of there without any further injury and the titans coached figured he wouldn't call a timeout. If the Steelers were in as a 2 seed and the 5 and 6 seeds were baltimore, and cleveland....you wouldn't worry?

I was just wondering is that truly ppossible? i mean the game had no meaning for the colts and they probably just wanted to get out of there and start preparing for the playoffs... besides it was the browns fault they didnt beat cinci..

And yet cheating doesn't challenge the integrity of the game? The fact that the patriacheats were enabled to cheat and got nothing for it other than a hefty fine and a loss of draft picks tells me that IF this story is true, then Goodell has noone but himself to blame!!

Wrong

The Browns would have a better shot at beating the Chargers IMO

Colts just wanted to get out of the game healthy and they did put forth a valid effort which is why these collusion allegations are total BS

You are right on. No way Tony Dungy would collude with any opposing coach or team. Come on this guy lost his son and handled with superb dignity and honor. Not wanting to risk injury and being realistic about the big picture is the perspective Dungy had. I would have done the exact same thing. It is all about winning the Super Bowl . He owes nothing to any team but his own. I am not a big Tony Dungy fan as far as his coaching style etc is concern. I like guys like Jack Del Rio, Jeff Fisher , John Gruden and I am liking Tomlin but i reserve my opinion until next season . But I like Tony Dungy as a MAN. We got to believe some things we read and hear and I choose Dungy over Collins or any sports writer creating something out of nothing.

Agree with Lord Steeler. Colts didn't see the risk of having a punt return injury, or getting the ball and attempting a late 20 second drive to win the game worth it and let the Titans know, as Gentlemen and one Warrior to another, "Hey, We are taking a knee as well, well fought, lets both just get out of here and maybe we'll see each other later."

Had the Colts been in position to win the game, say down by 2 and at the 13 yard line and chosen to take a knee and the loss instead of kicking a game winning field goal...that would be a story.

Michael whats up, I am up the hill in El Dorado Hills. Browns get no sympathy here, they should have beat the bungles a week earlier. Dungy is one of the most respected man in football I agree this is not a story. A patriot fan is probably pushing this story to try and get an asterisk next to someone else besides them.

No...We think it's a load of BS but that doesn't mean we're not giving Colts fans a hard time about it. As would you if these allegations were against the Patriots.
