Not a fan of Coyer but, the talent does not fit the system when you factor in all the injuries since he's been with the team. A little bit of a sacrificial lamb here.

Clearly..some one feels this talent can play better in another scheme...or with different calls in this scheme

So much for not making changes until, the season is over.

Clearly...there are disagreements on the staff and the insurgents won out...

Either that..or Caldwell was told..fire him..or clean out your office..

Polian would never do that to a Head Coach..... oh wait.

This needed to happen but I have a feeling Polian is just using Coyer as the fall guy for this pathetic season.

He is.

It was obvious after listening to Polian all year that he was going to be the scapegoat. He has thrown Coyer under the bus all year long without actually naming him. Saying he was "baffled" as to why the defense was so bad and other things. Who hired Coyer?

That is interesting - particularly since the defense has played well enough to win for the past four games. It's the offense (and last game the special teams) that have been the problem. This would have made more sense after the NO game, or after next weeks game (cringing already).

It does sound like a bit of a sacrificial lamb, which is out of character. It makes one very curious about what's going on behind the screens. The "communication" comment may be particularly telling.

Hopefully Polian was told "Tell Caldwell to 'fire him or clean out your office'" or clean out your office" ;)

What is the point of this comment? He hired him, and now he's firing him. That's what managers do. What would people say if he HADN'T been fired - that Polian was refusing to admit he made a mistake because of his ego?

or that some of the picks have not panned out and the D would have been better if they had not had 438 players IR'ed in the last couple of years. There are some guys, which will remain nameless, that I wouldn't have on my practice squad, #50.

    • Wasn't a big fan of the Funch signing, but was hopeful once he signed. He signed with GB last year for a cheap contract (much cheaper than the Indy contract) and then opted out lol. He then took a pay cut to stay another year in GB for this year.   There was a youtube video he did, where he talked about his financial goals. Basically said his Indy contract would set him up for life based on his budget. While I applaud his budget and financial goal setting, just seemed strange to me. Got the vibe that playing wasn't really a driving desire for him.

    • He also talked highly of Strachan, so just not sure who wins out between Patmon and Strachan. I think Strachan has the edge though, especially from a possession perspective.   I love Dulin. His return STs value faded as the year went along, but his return-coverage was great. Not sure if that will be enough unless he can find a larger roll as WR. Harris is intriguing to me too given his gimmick potential.    Overall, love the comp this year for the spots. Best it's been in a while IMO. 
    • Yeah that really stinks with happened with Funch, his injury was unfortunate. I was wanting to see his game in a Colts uni. I am ok with Pittman as well.
