Jim Caldwell Fired: 5 Ridiculous Replacements for Ex-Colts Head Coach

Head coach Jim Caldwell was fired by the Indianapolis Colts yesterday after a disappointing 2-14 season.

Caldwell wasn't the reason superstar quarterback Peyton Manning got injured, and he certainly wasn't the reason the Colts were so ill-prepared for a potential injury to Manning. However, Caldwell's quiet demeanor on the field (re: he blinks, on average, about five times per game) and overall lack of enthusiasm could be considered a weak point for a coach whose team needed an injection of passion during what was a pathetic, emotionless season.

I'm not here to blame Caldwell for the 14 losses; I'm only here to present five replacements for a coach who had about as much personality as a loaf of bread.

Caldwell did take the Colts to the Super Bowl back in 2009 and brought them back to the AFC Divisional game last season, but considering the results this year, it is pretty clear that it had a little more to do with Manning's mastery of the quarterback position than it did with Caldwell's coaching acumen.

Without further ado, here are five ridiculous replacements for the Indianapolis Colts going into the 2012 season.
