Favre to the Colts? Or Lose on Purpose to Draft Stanford’s Andrew Luck?

by Greg Pollowitz

Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star writes:

The next time Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay tweets about visiting Hattiesburg, Miss., here’s hoping he’s not joking around.

Seriously, what’s there to lose at this point with the Indianapolis Colts’ season swirling — having swirled — hopelessly down the drain with Sunday’s 27-19 loss to the Cleveland Browns?

Why not try something a little crazy and see if Brett Favre is interested in dismounting his tractor and taking over the Colts offense?

What was once a Twitter joke now looks like a semi-reasonable option, at least if the Colts can figure out some way to make it work with the salary cap. Sure, it would be a Hail Mary, a desperate move in desperate times, but what do the Colts have to lose?

Unless the master plan is to keep losing and get in a position to draft Andrew Luck — the “Suck for Luck” campaign is well under way in this town — there’s nothing to lose except for some more of Irsay’s pocket change.

The rest here.
