Not sure if many saw this as a surprise since the Colts are coming off of a 2-14 season. Many expected there to be a lot of changes for this organization going into the 2012 season.

The Indianapolis Colts are in unfamiliar territory this offseason having already fired their long time general manager and head coach in the last month. Now the organization must decide what they're going to do to about Peyton Manning before early March.
