Despite conflicting reports that Indianapolis Colts Head coach, Jim Caldwell would be retained for another season after going a disastrous 2-14 this past season. Speculations of the Colts organization cleaning house has now been confirmed with the firing of Caldwell.

Yes, losing franchise Quarterback, Peyton Manning, was a significant loss. But the team had no back up plan at quarterback and attempts at finding a backup were unsuccessful with the signing of former retired quarterback, Kerry Collins.

Colts owner Jim Irsay announced the beginning of a rebuilding process during the firing of former general manager Bill Polian.

Granted Jim Caldwell went 22-26 as a NFL head coach. The colts have yet to address their suspect defensive needs since their 2007 XLI Superbowl win with Tony Dungy’s “Tampa 2” defense.

Supposedly, former Tennessee Titan’s and current St. Louis Rams head coach, Jeff Fisher, was waiting around to see if he would have an opportunity to interview.

The colts are now in an attractive position with the number pick in the 2012 NFL draft. This pick will evidently be used to draft Stanford University Quarterback, Andrew Luck.
