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.

Please let this be true

@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.

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.

    • Assuming we come out of the 1st 7 games at 5-2 which is a likely outcome, we won't really find out what this team is made of until we play the Ravens and Titans.  
    • The only element that "might" struggle is our running game, but I don't think that will happen either. Our pass O, pass D, and rush D should all dominate. My fear is we come out with a very conservative game plan, playing soft zone, and trying to not pass. 
    • I'm optimistic too, but "potential" can be a trap. I like the measurables of the guys we have, but most are wildcards. And let's be honest, the "potential" we've had has been a bit stunted in terms of growth due to QB woes 2 of our last 4 years. But yes, we do have a lot of speedy athletic, although raw and small school guys at WR. TE is however another story. If we remove Burton from the conversation (he's not a traditional TE, and is more slot than anything), Doyle is the only proven, and MAC is the only one I see with legit potential. At RB, Taylor is the only legit true RB aside from Mack. Wilkins is good depth, but he's not bell cow between the Ts guy. He's a zone rushing back most effective on the edge. Great depth, and will look great later in games behind our OL, but not a #1. Hines is a great APB and is legit. 
    • The Colts not only need to win, but they need to come out and make a statement on Sunday. They need to destroy the Jets on both sides of the ball and win this game by a landslide.
    • Ballard completely rebuild 98% of the roster in three years. I don't count 2017 because he didn't have his own coaching staff and had to deal with Pagano. Even with Andrew Luck retiring, Ballard never stopped building the Colts into the highly talented roster they currently have today. I don't think Ballard gets enough credit just like I don't think Andrew Luck got enough when he was carrying the Colts pitiful roster for multiple years on his back.
