This just sucks, such a letdown if its true noone is fired...... it was such a great oppportunity to bring in new faces, start fresh, and generate some excitement......Mr. Irsay, 2005 is NOT walking through that door!

Jim enough with your stupid tweets-U had no intention of firing Caldwell even if went 0 and 16- I give credit to Rams and Bucs owners who realize need to make changes

“@bkravitz: At this point, everything is in play: Everybody back, or Polians-only back, or Caldwell-only back, or everybody gone. Stay tuned.”

Irsay still in the process of evaluating everybody.

Well, that means nobody's going anywhere. He's had all season to do all of the evaluating needed to be done. 0-13 was enough time to evaluate. I guess Irsay thinks we're all sewer rats too. Promoting Caldwell was a huge mistake and firing him would make them look just as stupid as when they hired him.

I would have phoned Fischer weeks ago and have him at the press conference

Can you phone him now?

Im going to be absolutely disgusted if (at least) Caldwell is not fired. The thoughts of moving forward with that baffoon coaching the Colts is sickening.

What is there to decide? SOS or New Direction? Actually, I think a real buffon (Cesar from Rise of Planet of the Apes) can coach better

Have his number so I can give to Jim in case he is unable to contact NFL headquarters in-between his earth shattering tweets

Please let this be true

@TwittaSportsMan Cave Sports

@bkravitz Rumor has it Jim Caldwell has been fired. He's speaking with players and packing his things. #Colts

Not saying it's not true but it seems odd they would let Cladwell talk to the media and THEN fire him. If they were going to fire him today it seems like they would push back the presser then fire him just like the other two teams that have fired coaches today have done.

I think Kravitz's second tweet about maybe waiting for a day or two is more likely what is going on. He's right this is a big call, especially if the rumors about him thinking about letting the Polian's go is true. This is a major move that is going to signal which way they are leaning in trying to take the franchise for the future, rather they are going to reload around Manning or rebuild around Luck.

Caldwell has done nothing to earn his job and has done less to deserve to keep it at this point, there are better available guys for the job who would take it. Fire Jim!

If I was Irsay I woulda let him have the conference and said to myself.. .and if he said "we just need to play a little better" one more time he was gone lol

Wouldn't be the first time a coach has been fired after his presser on Monday

Right but most of those come a day or two after the presser, not moments after the presser is over like is being reports. Like I said I could very well see them making the call to let him go in a day or two.

You posted this as if the quote came from Kravitz. Actually he said nothing of the kind. The quote came from the first link - whatever that may be (not too many influencial sports sources have a whopping 68 followers - where did you even find this guy?)

Miami fired Tony Sporano an hour after his presser this season.

I can see that, I don't think the orginal poster ment to do that. After reading your post I see the guy tweeting started his tweet by sending it to Kravitz. I don't think the orginal poster was trying to mislead people.

Middle of the season and didn't follow a meeting the night before where they talked about the future of the team like has been reported. Also note in my first response I said I am NOT saying it isn't true because I don't know.

    • 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.
    • I had us 9-7 just based on guessing/hoping/predicting Luck would be healthy and play great. I was right but a lucky guess, I guess  . I thought that would get us a 6th seed. We won 10 games which got us in.
    • For the first time in a while, I am impressed with the Colts development of players. If this current trend continues, a lot of opinions will change. 
    • I had us going 10-6 and winning the AFC South. I knew with Luck back we'd be at minimum .500, and I thought by adding Nelson, Ebron, and Cain, our O would be pretty decent, and enough to take the South. We were 10-6, but didn't win the South.  I wasn't counting on our D being as good, so I guess they overachieved. Honestly I'm still not sold on our D. This year will be a much bigger test.
    • There appears to be a possibility that the Pacers acquire 31-year-old Eric Gordon, the shooting guard for the Rockets.   Houston wants Jimmy Butler but they don't have cap space to sign him. The 76ers would have to sign Jimmy and trade him to Houston. But Houston cant send the 76ers matching salaries because Philadelphia already has to sign Tobias Harris, JJ Reddick and soon Embid and Ben Simmons..   So the 76ers and Houston have to find a third team who could acquire some salary. In the theory of this trade: That team would be the Pacers who would take the final year of Eric Gordon's contract at $15 mil   Obviously, Gordon is an IU grad and Indianapolis native. He comes off the Houston bench behind Chris Paul and James Harden. 16.2 per game last year and 16.7 for his 11-year career..   Forgetting how crazy Houston's locker room would be with Paul, Harden and Butler, is there a downside to acquiring Gordon, who would start until Oladipo returns? We might have to give up next year's No.1 pick.
