    Irsay's speaking at 5:30
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Ugh. Irsay said he's keeping Pagano for the 2017 season.

    Grigson is A problem. Pagano is also A problem.
    THE ****ing problem, however, is a title saved for that stupid **** Jim Irsay himself. That stupid **** is THE problem.

    I listened to the PC via 1070 and I am a bit more hopeful about the Colts than before. He mentioned there was going to be a thorough GM search which I liked to hear he wasn't going to limit his options. I did find the comment about Grigson/Pagano loving each other a bit laughable but I figured he wasn't going to say otherwise but I think Irsay did this because he felt he had no choice if the comments of present and past players were any indication.

    I personally don't get why he's keeping Chuck over Grigson considering a year ago they were tied at the hip. I am curious to know the real story though whatever that may be.

    Do I want Chuck back? Honestly no but if he does return I think it will be for one more year if Pagano misses the postseason yet again he will be fired because Grigson can't be blamed anymore.

    I think the timing of all this is terrible though with off season workouts, FA etc whoever is GM will need a bit of a learning curve.

    You're not surprised that Grigson got fired when many thought based on "sources" and rumors that Irsay loves Grigson like the son he never had.

    I didn't think Irsay would do it. Course I am a bit surprised Pagano is staying but Grigson leaves. I would've thought the other way around.

    Wonder what the real story is......

    I did chuckle when he said that there were unrealistic expectations of the Colts though (I wonder who helped create that....)

    That being said if there's anything anyone should've gotten out of this press conference is that you shouldn't take what Irsay(or any Billionaire NFL owner) says at face value.

    I could also see Chuck being fired a week from now.

    This entire process has been a giant **** show. I cant recall any Indiana team ****ing things up like this so much. It's so bad. And the fact that Pagano remains is absolutely terrible. He's possibly the worst coach in the NFL. That is not even an exaggeration. And if the plan is to hire a new GM and let him decide Pagano's fate, well that is even dumber. This whole thing is a giant black eye on the organization.

    Also, i'm still waiting for someone to tell me what Peyton Mannings qualifications are for being GM of an NFL team. Other than the " well he's the best player of our organization.. soo .soo he has to be it right ?". LOL There is literally no proof Manning is qualified for the GM position. None at all.

    Why? That means another season in the dumps. I'd love to know the amount of teams who can there head coach a few games in the season and still make the playoffs.

    And you're basing this on ........ ???

    Do your own homework. Read a little about Peyton. Then you can come back and discuss it intelligently.

    Well you do bring up a lot of good points here actually. I think with Manning as long as it isn't Grigson people are going to be happy. I also don't think Manning should be a GM/Team President and I don't see him wanting to do it anytime soon anywhere either.

    Now that I've thought about it I think this GM search is a smokescreen and Jimmy Raye is going to be the new GM which would explain why Pagano is safe and that Grigson is collateral damage because the fans wanted blood.

    I would be okay with this until I heard that Raye was Grigson's right hand man in which case this reminds me of the Pacers last year when they canned Vogel and Larry went on a "search" and settled for the assistant coach Nate McMillan.

    Default According to Schefter Colts have fired Grigson

    Reggie confirmed that Grigson was arrogant and "tried to put fear in you." Players didn't like him.

    See this could be used to describe Polian (but he was more successful) how many players actually like their GM?

    They like Chuck though but they don't win for him.

    Belichick is a douche and people don't like him but he wins.

    My guess is Grigson doesn't have that cache so how he was towards others wouldn't be tolerated as opposed to Belichick/Polian who produce.

    Like McAfee said, Grigson's arrogance was "unearned." That's the big difference.

    Hence "cache" I think these Grigson is a total nightmare is a tad exaggerated. I think he wasn't good at his job and probably thought he was better than he truly was but most GMs are unlikeable (so this doesn't say much) but if you are good at what you do its overlooked.

    Polian always seemed pretty popular with the players. I don't recall a player of Wayne or McAfee's stature ever ripping into Polian. Polian was arrogant to the local media, but that's completely different than his relationship with players.

    True but I doubt he was the easiest person to deal with but he had cache in the NFL so they had to respect him. Grigson? Not so much.
