Will Jax lose on purpose?

We are all familiar with the idea of losing games for a chance at Andrew Luck, but John Clayton proposed a new twist in his latest column on espn.com today.

If the Jaguars lose to Indy this week, it will almost surely cost the Colts Luck (or the bounty of draft picks they could get in trade for him. Maybe they lie down... Having watched Peyton Manning dominate their division for the last decade, making sure the Colts don't have a chance to repeat the story with Luck might be enough to be worth it. The coach in Jax probably won't get the permanent job anyway (unlike our own coach who is playing for his future here...)

Throwing games in the NFL is considered a big taboo because it sends horrible signals to your team and fans and can also be detrimental to already short playing careers and already short-leashed coaching jobs, but in this case it could change the entire course of history in the AFC South. It might just be worth the Jags' effort.

What does everyone think? Would you want to take a loss if it meant, for example, that SD would lose Rivers and Gates if you do it?
