They magically got their act together and wound up with the 8th pick and got a somewhat talented QB who was still probably a reach. The Colts, OTOH, were able to have their GOAT QB have a random neck injury putting them out of their otherwise perennial playoff spot in the exact season the best prospect since Elway is coming out of college.
The Jets are with the Fins, sadly. We had our chance at Manning but he goes back in the draft. The Colts come along, swoop him up and they are set at QB for 13 years. Next year, we'll probably have Jason Campbell as our starter, but somehow a guy like Antonio Allen is going to step up, make a great play in week 17 and screw our chances at getting our Franchise QB.
Thats just the way things go unfortunately.
At least we are not Cleveland
BTW, the intent of this thread was not suggesting we lose on purpose, just pointing out that Bridgewater would be the kind of prospect you need to get "Lucky" in order to get. Sucks to be the Chiefs or Jaguars this year. Sometimes you just need to time your bad years.
