    No clue, but would love to see some video evidence of it.

    Dungy in my opinion has always been an ass! Remember Manning throwing deep late in a game where the Colts were clearly going to win, big?

    That's a strong opinion for him to be floating it out there like it's fact.

    I can't recall a single instance of this happening, and I usually watch every game twice.

    I like Dungy a lot. He's a classy dude off the field and all business on the field. But this pisses me off.

    Screw this dude, and his holier-than-thou attitude. As a few others have said, I don't recall the Texans ever pulling a stunt such as this, and I can remember a lot of what goes on during the Texans games.

    Hell, I'm sure the Texans have faked injuries in the past, just like all the rest of the teams in the NFL. BFD

    Seth Payne, Robaire Smith, and Gary Walker did this frequently. The Texans were thin up front then, and they'd come up limping when they needed a blow.

    It's old data, but I'd have to say it's a true statement. They faked a lot of injuries to slow the game down.

    I'm not saying he's lying, but usually when people are going to make such a damning statement about a team not even in the middle of a controversy, you'd think he'd give at least one example.

    That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if we have/still do do this, I have a feeling it's part of defense 101.

    On the other side of the coin, with how bad our players were, what's to say they weren't actually hurt?

    I'd like to have proof of the players flopping. As a person who makes a moneyless living going on a crusade against flopping and disingenous actions on the soccer field and basketball court, I don't take kindly to someone accusing players on my team of flopping and faking injuries, let alone saying they're "the worst" at it.

    Wow now I know why our defense was so bad last year, none of our players took drama class in high school. I propose all Texan players start a drama club and get together on day off and practice falling.

    If it was so bad that the Colts sent video to the league than I would have to give Dungy the benefit of the doubt. He was obviously referring to this during his days as coach.

    **** Dungy. He is the worst at winning home play off games when he has the best record in football. The MOST overrated coach of all time. I followed him with the Bucs, and saw plenty of him with the Colts. All those winning seasons, play-off appearences, and home games and one ring to show. Who knows if they win if they don't get the Sex Cannon and the overrated and poorly coached Bears. **** this asshole. Go blow Vick some more.

    Who gives a shit what a retired NFL coach has to say about our Texans? He's just ****ing jealous that the Colts suck ass and we are finally going to pass them this season and go to the playoffs.

    Yep. This was a tactic of the Capers regime. I've heard players blatantly admit to it on the air (McKinney, Coleman, and/or others). That's not to say Kubiak does or doesn't do it, just that I know the Capers regime did it.

    Why would Dungy lie about this? He's been extremely complimentary of this team. He has no axe to grind and no reason to pull this out of thin air. If he says it's true, that's good enough for me.
