The Colts Coaching Staff [Mega-merge]


Recommended Posts

This just goes to show how inept our coaching staff really is. The Broncos shouldn't have won tonight, but they have made changes to their strategy to complement the players they have, and they have been very sucessful. Meanwhile, we do the same stupid thing each and every Sunday, and the result is the same....we lose in grand fashion.

Someone explain to me why we even should entertain keeping our coaching staff one minute past the expiration of this season? This Colts fan wants Caldwell and Co. gone.

Replaced with who? I don't care. Anyone but Caldwell and Co......Anyone, and I really mean that.

Tebow for Luck? I'm not too sure about that one.....If Caldwell gets a hold of Tebow, poor 'ol Tim is going to be working for McDonald's by the end of week three next season.

i sadly agree :(

But i wouldnt mind having tebow as our backup behind peyton for 4 more years. he could become a great passer possibly and then would be unstopable.

you are nuts if you believe he would become a great passer. His form is terrible and most of his throws are way off target. He didn't play a great game, once again their defense won the game. If we had their Defense we would've won a few games too. Von Miller, Elvis Dumervil, Champ Bailey just to name a few. If we had some real pass coverage we would also be a lot better. Our corners are embarrassing.

But Luck for Tebow? I'd lose all faith in the Colts organization if this happened. But John Elway would do it in a second.

Tebow has a degree, he'd be able to get a better job than McD's. He'd probably get hired on at a really nice sushi restaurant.

Not to defend the coaching staff but after watching the Broncos what's getting lost in all of this Tebow stuff is just how well the Broncos D is playing. If our D was playing like that we would probably win a game or two with our QBs. With that said it's unbelieveable what happens to Tebow once the 4th quarter starts he becomes a new player. I don't know how well you can compare the Broncos and the Colts though it's sorta comparing apples and oranges because they are both built in completely different ways.

Also I am not sure if doing new stuff with our guys would matter I just think we have a lack of talent. Our stuff is pretty simple to start with so we can't really make it more simple and if they can't handle the simple stuff I am not sure they could handle more complex stuff.

I've said before I am not going to be shocked either way with what happens with Caldwell. I can see the Colts bringing him back if he makes major changes to his coaching staff (which is where new systems are really going to come from) under the grounds that his team was missing the guy the whole team was built around and that if they had that guy they probably had 10 to 11 wins and were in the playoffs. With that said I can also understand if they just look at him and go 0-16 or 1-15 and say Peyton Manning or not we can't have that and we are going to go in a new direction.

Peyton Manning or not it is painfailly clearly that Caldwell's biggest issue is that his teams don't adjust in games. I've said before the difference between him and Dungy is that Dungy knew the little changes to make and when you really needed to stick with what you were doing and that made all the difference in the world and Caldwell just doesn't. So I can see and would probably more agree with the idea it's time for a new coach but I can also see how the Colts might not agree with that view.

How does a guy that has won 5 games get fired, but our 0-13 dufus is still collecting a paycheck?

Maybe they want to show there fans they care, but wait I thought playing with back ups gave you a free pass. They not only lost a shut down stud corner and a stud RB and their starting QB, HUH!

So we get to keep the wooden solider Caldwell becasue he sucks up to the owner and GM? Caldwell should be fired ASAP. What a joke. I have a bad feeling Caldwell may actually get an extension. Oh well, another winless season next year with him, should bring another number 1 pick. That is what is wrong with Colts managemnet by not wanting to make any changes. What type of message does that send to the fans?. Haley, a hot head. So what? is that today's players are so soft that they can't take any type of tough approach? Oh, that works so well with Caldwell. See how inspire our team is?

Haley was reported to have issues with the GM, Caldwell and Polian don't have those issues. There was more than KC's record that lead to Haley getting fired.

You will never have an issue with a person who sits obediently by your side and does only what they are told,that he how I have stayed married 23 years!

The Broncos offense is about as bad as the Colts, their winning is coming from great defensive play and stupid coaching from the opposition. The Broncos did not win that game yesterday, the Bears lost it.

Actually their winning is coming from solid defensive play (which was terrible through the first five games under Orton), some luck, and great QB play in the 4th quarter. Tebow could just as easily be .500 or worse, but because of his intangibles (I guess what Fox says is competitive greatness and his ability to bring confidence to his teammates) and Denver's coaching staff, he is 7-1.

There are many things I don't like about Tebow, but the way he plays and how he brings out the best in his teammates are the definition of a great professional athlete (or athlete at any level for that matter). I mean, at this point in the season, I can't stomach to watch a Colts game all the way through, and being able to tune into a Denver game and just watch the drama unfold is a pleasure. So here's to the creativity of Fox and the Broncos staff, Tebow, and the defense!

I was wondering the same thing. Maybe Caldwell is still here because he deflects some of the blame from Polian and son.

That and he is Polians best bet to help get the first draft pick for years to come, because as long as he coaches here, Bill

will be picking in the top three.

Maybe Caldwell has dirt on ownership and he contiues to get hush money pay checks; only in good old America. If someone that incompenetent was running a company, they would have been let go a long time ago. Tweet man Jim needs to get his head out of his Tweeting and focus on his crumbling team and organization.

Horseman, you goot it right! Fox inspires his players and commands respect. Caldwell inspires being a coward and zippo confidence.

Were was this inspiring and respect when Denver sucked butt early in the season? Where has Caldwell inspired cowardness and zippo?

So we complain that we built a team and a strategy around one player's strengths: those belonging to Peyton Manning.

Then the Broncos do the same for Tebow.

It's bad to build around one player's strengths when it suits our argument to fire everyone. It's good to build around one player's strengths when it suits our argument to....fire everyone.

Can't have it both ways, folks.

    • These are the kinds of dumb posts you get over at Youtube. I was reading the gameday thread of Cubs and Reds. Cubs fans were enjoying the moment with their posts and a Reds fan said we are in 2nd place and you guys haven't done anything since 2016. I about fell out of my chair here at work. "Haven't done anything since 2016", that is comical. By that logic the Reds haven't done anything since 1990. Cards haven't even won a WS since 2011. The Cubs just won the Division last year. Reds are 1.5 games ahead of the Cubs and we are in sell mode , it isn't like the Reds are 10 games ahead. By the way I like the Reds but some fans in general ruin it. Some people are so butt hurt over the Cubs being great over the last 6 years that it is comical. Brewers fans can put a zipper on it period until they win a WS, until then they are irrelevant to any kind of greatness discussion. I just ignore their hate because it isn't worth my time, they are the worst  . 
    • I just seen Javy's walk off. Don't poke the bear of a Champion is all I can say - As Homer would say that Garrett character had it coming  
    • I think many understand why Luck retired but many will agree it was just the timing of it. He had everyone believing he was going to play in 2019. He should've just made announcement soon after losing to KC in the playoffs. That would've been before the draft. A simple, I talked it over with my wife and I am just in too much pain play anymore. That would've been good enough for everyone IMO.    One thing too that nobody mentions is he replaced a top 3 QB of all-time and the expectations coming out of college for Luck was, he will be close to what Manning was. So of course a lot of people were upset and disappointed when he stepped away. We expected a SB win from Luck as fans. 
    • I also think the fact he was about to become a dad just made him go you know there is way more to life than football.  He already had some of that before he got to the NFL but I think becoming a father might have pushed him over the edge too.  No one wants to not be able to do things with your kids because of pain.
    • If I confused anyone with this post, I meant they will replay the games and not just have it be a forfeit according to how Acho was talking. I suck and posting links and video but you guys can youtube first take and see it. Thanks.
