Please please please get him away from this team. He has lost "it" an that is being generous. Has become way to power hungry and full of himself needs to be canned.

what if they both get fired and Irsay promotes this daughters to run this team. BP hasnt been that bad of a GM

I happen to agree for the most part. I wouldn't mind seeing Caldwell axed and Chris Polian replaced though as he doesn't have much of a track record besides being Bill's son. Bill Polian can stay imo so long as Irsay pulls the reins in on him. If reports are true he has no business interfering in coaching decisions.

This is just a prediction, which I'm probably wrong about, but I just have a feeling that Caldwell will announce that he will "resign" as the Colts head coach. It's just a prediction.

Irsay's last tweet:

"I want 2 thank all ColtsFans..here,throughout the country n abroad,4ur tremendous,loyal support all year long. Ur feedback is heard n noted"

I wonder which of ours feedback had been heard. :-)

Exactly!

Sorry, I just don't get the anti-Polian sentiment. But everyone has their right to opinion. As far as Chris, I thought the 11 draft was excellent (I know that can't be judged now) and the FA that were brought in were about as good as we could get at the time.

Bill's record speaks for itself. I personally don't care that he doesn't get along with some of the media.

But in the long run, I just don't think this team or organization needs to be blown up. Just my 2 cents....

I really hope that a phone call has been placed to Fisher...

If there was a total house cleaning, it's entirely possible Jim reached out earlier to see what HCs thoughts were about coming here. If the Polian's were a stumbling point, that could be a big determining factor in their demise.

I don't understand why anybody would want to stay with the status quo. If Polian wants to keep Caldwell so he can keep calling the shots about coaching then he needs to go.

News seems to be turning towards caldwells return. Presser hadn't started

This is exactly what I was afraid of. I think they all stay. Unfortunate!

Jim Irsay is meeting with the Polians and Caldwell tonight to discuss the future according to Phil Wilson from the star. Caldwell is supposed to have his weekly press conference around noon tomorrow i believe so if he is going to be fired i think it will happen tomorrow, or it's happening tonight and will be announced tomorrow.

Sounds like you were all over this.....STAMP...

...a coaching staff chosen by Polian/s...

What are you basing this on? I remember reading a story that Polian did not want Dungy as coach, but Irsay flew him down to Tampa after the Bucs fired Tony, put them in a room, and said, "Work it out." Caldwell was Dungy's hand-picked successor. There was quite a bit of turnover in the coaching staff when Caldwell took over, presumably replacing the existing staff with guys that Caldwell wanted. What leads you to believe that this is a coaching staff chosen by Polians?

All the hype and excitement for Caldwell to be fired and they will all stay- Tweet Man Jim is a FOOL if he allows this continuity- No sense of PRIDE- Colts will stink it up again-

I'm torn on this. On one hand, Bill has a very good track record and has brought in lots of talent. On the other, he stuck his nose into the business of the coaches, which he shouldn't have done. As for Chris, I wouldn't be upset if he stayed. He drafted really well this last draft.

    • I wouldn't consider #10 a diss..... but I have a bit of an issue with the Cowpies ranked #2 at the same time.   We not only shut them out last season, we out manned, out-muscled and intimidated them in a way that none of us have seen a Colts team do to any team in a long, long time.   You could say "well its only one game".... and that's true.   But that was a statement game, and I just don't see how Brandt can justify a #2 ranking for Dallas given each team's additions this off-season....not to mention all those other teams he has them ranked ahead of.   As for the Colts...on our own merits.... I would have us closer to the middle of the pack on this list, around 7th and certainly ahead of Dallas.
    • His mom sounds awesome.  
    • Sigh...........   This is beyond really frustrating.    You're accusing me of things I literally haven't done.     That's very Irish of you.    Really annoying.      You ask for benefit of the doubt while never giving it out yourself.   I've put certain things into bold.   I'll try taking them one at a time.   Your first bold...   that this is not me saying that teams that aren't doing this are stupid.    I'm sorry, but when you declare that you've come up that you think is clearly and obvously better,  that you think you've re-invented the wheel and sliced bread,  it certainly feels like you're casting a disapporving eye toward any team that's not doing things your preferred way as a matter of course.   Then you claim,  that I want Ballard in the building ASAP,  but not before January.    Let me see if you understand this word.....   NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!   Was that clear enough for you?       If Irsay had decided in the spring of 16 to fire Grigson and hire Ballard in the spring, I would've been ok with it.   It's not desirable,  but if Irsay made that call THEN,  I'd be ok with it.     Where YOU mis-read me,  is that roughly 95 of owners make this decision during the season.    They see things they don't like and they decide during the season to make a change -- typically when the season ends.    Sometimes, an exec will be fired during the season and someone like Dorsey comes in during the season to oversee things and learn about the organization.    I'm fine with that.  There's no record of me opposing that.   I start with January,  because that's when the business season starts for front office and coaches.   Period.   The NFL views it as preferrable.    But making the switch in the spring is doable, as I've said in every post, and which you have ignored or confused badly.    But if Ballard had been hired in the spring of 16,  I'd have been fine with it.   This isn't the first time I've said some version of this.    This is not some ah-ha moment.   As to the bold declaring that there are tons of qualified guys and that CHOOSING the best guy is another story.   Here's my reponse to that.   No.   nonsense.     They are the same story.    They are connected.    Because you play down the fact that most GM's and most HC's fail.   They get fired before their 4 or 5 year contracts expire.   The owner has seen enough and makes a change.   Saying there are always qualified guys is meaningless.    Because FINDING the best guy who will succeed, isn't just important,  it's EVERYTHING.   All 32 teams can announce they hired a qualified guy.    That isn't hard.    But the vast majority of teams are introducing his successor in a few years.    That's why a franchise like Pittsburgh has very little turnover either in HC or the front office.   While franchises like the Jets or Buffalo or Miami are introducing someone new so often, you can practically set your watch to it.     Generally speaking,  the new GM has a long history of scouting and evaluating talent.   The new HC has a history of success, both as a position coach and a coordinator.   They can easily be called qualified,  (though new guys like Kliff Kingsbury and Zack Taylor do NOT have a long track record of success)  But the vast majority of hires...   are soon enough fired.   That doesn't speak well to their qualifications.      As to you meaning what you're saying...   Of course you mean what you say and I stated that clearly.  I don't know why this should rub you the wrong way.  I literally wrote that I know you mean what you say.    I said what I said as a rhetorical point,  not an attacking point.    My ultimate point was made at the end of my first post to you.   You typically write persuasive arguments.    You're able to frequently made me see your viewpoint.    But not here.    You accuse me of not considering your argument.    I'm sorry,  I am considering what you write.   But I don't see the typical high quality Superman argument.   I don't see points that connect.    Your argument feels like the one you'd make for doable.   It doesn't convince me at all that it's preferable.  
    • Yeah, Ballard said he's a patient guy, and he doesn't mind waiting to pick. We almost traded back from 34 as well if Rock wasn't there. I personally love the "trade back" strategy at the end of round 1, and wouldn't mind doing it in most every draft. A late 1st for a mid-second and early/mid second (from the Redskins) over two drafts is fine with me!
    • Haven't done research on the 2020 draft yet, but if it ends up having an elite WR or OT, I wouldn't mind trading up this year. We'll have to see where we finish (hopefully 32 ), and make a decision from there. Ballard landing the Redskins 2nd rounder may be a brilliant move.
