Adam Schefter has reported that Steve Spagnuolo, the guy all Eagles fans covet, spent Monday interviewing with the Indianapolis Colts about their defensive coordinator job. Oddly, this was reported at about the same time it was announced that the Colts have fired head coach Jim Caldwell.
Why would the Colts interview someone for their defensive coordinator position and then fire the head coach? Something doesn’t quite add up there. Usually, a head coach will hire his coordinators.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning doesn’t plan on retiring. Right now, he plans on playing in 2012.
Despite Schefter’s report of Manning not planning on retiring, I believe he’ll end up being forced to end his career. I honestly don’t see him being healthy enough to finish his career.
Don’t get me wrong, I love...
