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?

The point is, it's just another in a long line of mistakes. 0-11 isn't the fault of just the defensive coordinator.

Managers that don't win games, usually get fired. Or they scapegoat others.

Who put this 0-11 team together?

I would be pretty comfortable with Jack Del Rio as the new Defensive Coordinator if that were to happen. The colts witnessed Peyton Manning absolutely throttle Larry Coyers defenses when he was with Denver so I couldn't understand what made them pick Coyer up in the first place. Mike Shannahan wanted to run cover 2 with Larry Coyer and it never worked out for them and Shannahan eventually fired Coyer. I still remember when that happened

Same person who built the Super Bowl team in 2009..

He's not going anywhere

That's pretty impressive work, from a super bowl to not winning a game in 2 years time.

It almost makes me think the team really was not that good, and it was just covered up by one of the greatest to ever play the game or something.

Del Rio has gotten way to much credit for his DC job in Carolina. Had a pretty darn good defense there. Wouldn't want him at all!

Watch Spagnoulo's situation i St. Louis - if he's fired, let him get back into a DC job in Indy.

that would be my first choice, Spagnuolo. But to be fair, jack del rio had a D, Spagnuolo had one heck of D line.

Some of it is obviously the personnel, however this is a step in the right direction. I hope people are not quick to judge Mike Murphy if we have a poor showing this week. Give the guy a few games.

Good post but will never happen if he doesn't have a great first outing some will be calling for his head also. I also feel we need to give the guy a chance. Coyer had 3 years and this should have been done a long time ago but now it's done so lets see what happens.
