The Indianapolis Colts have responded to their worst season in two decades with a major housecleaning.
BEST OF MAXIM
Phil Richards covers the reaction from Colts players including an eye-opening statement from Robert Mathis:
"He was a great guy, but I just think his hands were tied, to be honest with you," Mathis said. "He didn't have the flexibility to do all that he wanted to do. However you want to take it, that's just the truth of the matter."
Clark Judge agrees with the Colts move to release Jim Caldwell:

So the Colts are making a break with their past ... especially their recent past.The big question, of course, is: What does this means for Manning...
The Colts have fired Pete Metzelaars and Frank Reich according to Bob Kravitz:
Offensive line coach Pete Metzelaars and wide receivers coach Frank Reich were released today a source with knowledge of the situation said.
Those moves are likely to be followed by others on the coaching staff after head coach Jim Caldwell was fired on Tuesday.

Eli Manning's season started with a debate about whether or not he was an elite quarterback and it might end with another debate.
It won't be about his elite status as any remaining holdouts have long ago given up that fight. The debate this time will be about whether or not he's the best quarterback in the Manning family.
If he wins on Sunday against the 49ers, Eli...
Rob Lowe is taking on another role -- pigskin prognosticator. The actor lit up social media Wednesday when he tweeted that Peyton Manning was done. Lowe said he'd heard from "my people" that the Indianapolis Colts quarterback would retire later in the day. No official word yet from Manning, the 35-year-old star who missed this season with a neck injury.
