    Who are the leading candidates?

    I wonder if it's Jim Tressell? He is on the payroll anyway.

    Aside from Tressel, some names I think you will hear (whether true or not):
    Jon Gruden
    Mike Zimmer
    Steve Spanuolo
    Perry Fewell
    Bill Cowher

    The Colts beat writer wrote as much last night. He said he had no hard evidence, but rather had a gut feeling that Caldwell was coming back.

    Not a very impressive group, I hope they don't recycle someone I hope they hire a young guy who will be here a while.

    No way you even hear Jon Gruden or Cowher's name mentioned and Spanulo won like 10 games in 3 years as Rams coach.

    .
    I kinda disagree, the GM having little experience is of concern to me. If a HC with little experience is hired along with a GM with little experience also then I don't think thats a good thing.

    You may have a good point there, didn't think of that. It's going to be interesting and in the press conference Grigson mentioned ushering in a "new era" makes me think Peyton may be gone.

    I think Zimmer could be a good hire. He has proved his value as a coordinator, and we all know the Colts D is what really needs help.

    I still really want Cowher, even though it's a longshot. I would be happy with Gruden too, but I don't see it. Otherwise, the list is kind of meh to me.

    Even though I don't think Caldwell is that great of a coach, it's kind of hard to believe he was fired after getting the Colts to a Super Bowl and had 1 season that was awful due to Manning being out.

    I think Caldwell was Dungy's guy and the Colts listend to Dungy a little too much once he reitred. I think Caldwell was way over his head as a head coach but I also think Peyton Manning, when on, can make any coach look good.

    This may be contrary to what many believe, but I think Tressel would be a fantastic NFL coach. He coached games in college like a NFL coach. I don't know if teams would be willing to go to him so soon, but I think he could be very successful.

    So what is a reasonable deal for Peyton Manning? He is older, has injury concerns, etc. but is probably the best QB in the league if healthy.

    The way I understand it Manning will be a free agent if the 28 million dollar bonus is not kicked in.

    So the talk of getting rid of Peyton and drafting Luck seems to be moot, if they cannot even receive any sort of compensation for trading Peyton.

    Well if they don't have to pay Manning the bonus and no longer have to pay his salary then they will be money ahead.

    IMO Luck is not going to come to Indy and sit a year and be "tutored" by Manning. As the potential #1 pick he has the leverage to demand that he plays now.

    All the buzz seems to be that the Colts are drafting Luck so Manning likely will be a free agent.

    What's the scoop with Cowher? Does he want a coaching gig or not? I can't tell
