    Re: "Blank Monday" - Who gets fired today...



    Jerry Jones came out last week and said no matter what happens, the redhead is safe.

    Raheem Morris and his entire staff fired, everyone but the GM.
    Wonder if Romeo Crenel gets the gig in KC?

    An excellent chance he will, good for him

    If not Patriots have a defense that need sorting out and he might get an offer

    I'm still thinking Caldwell is gone. He's looked overmatched since day one.

    That's a head scratcher.

    Manning has that huge contract guaranteed in March, no one even knows if he can play NFL football again...Wayne and Mathis free agents...#1 pick in draft in April...

    Interesting times for Indy. Is this a total reboot?

    Caldwell could be next.

    It is looking like it. Their roster is old and expensive, not a good combination.

    You could see a total rebuild with the release of a LOT of the key veterans.

    They are going to draft Luck, and in that scenario why would Manning want to be a part of a total rebuild at his age? It is likely Manning has played his last game as a Colt as well. We should have at least 2 years not having to worry about them, maybe longer.

    The Polians out in Indy is definately a stunner. Lombardi and La Canfora were on NFL network together and speculated that Irsay didn't like their plan for 2012 (i.e Manning situation, #1 pick). They also speculated that he wanted a change in defensive philosophy. The polians for years drafted for speed and quickness on defense. Sounds like he wanted to get a little more physical.
    We knew Indy would take a step back this year without Manning. I thought 7-9 and 8-8 was realistic and to go 2-14 just shows what kind of team and depth Indy has. It might be fair to say that Manning has been hiding their flaws on offense/defense for years?

    Entire staff fired. wow, who saw this coming?

    Edit: Just listened to Irsay and he is leaving the Caldwell decision to the new GM but didn't give much of a vote of confidence.

    I think Irsay is overreacting, of course he team sucks without Manning. Big secret! Sure the Patriots went 11-5 without Brady for a year, but at that time there was more than Brady to the team.

    Not sure I'd be happy as a Colt fan with the direction they are going. Unless they land Parcells, I see dark days for Indy ahead.

    Irsay is a freaking idiot. Bill Polian built that team. They had a lot of talent bedsides Manning; Caldwell is a weak coach and couldn't keep the team together without him. Should they have had a better backup QB? Absolutely. But that's not a fireable offense, IMO. Dungy gone, Polian gone, and Manning soon to follow. Unless he hires a good exec, they're on their way back to being doormats, IMO. If they were smart, they'd trade Manning and some other older vets (Freeney, etc) for as many picks as they can get, take whatever cap hit they're going to take next year, draft Luck, and start over. Polian would've done a nice job of rebuilding, but now...who knows.
