Indianapolis Colts: 2 Best Options to Replace Jim Caldwell as Head Coach

I'd like to first say that I never like to see people get fired, especially in this economy, but I think it's about time Colts head coach Jim Caldwell goes.

At 0-5 you can't blame this horrible start on the absence of Peyton Manning.  They should be 4-1 atop of the AFC South right now.  There's absolutely no excuses anymore for Caldwell.

The scheme isn't working anymore.

Teams have drafted year in and year out to beat this scheme that Tony Dungy brought in 2002.

I honestly don't think Jim Caldwell knows what he's doing.  He never shows emotion or rarely have I ever seen him actually coach someone.  He just inherited a team and scheme from Dungy, led by the best player to ever play this game.  Sorry, Tom Brady, but Peyton is better.

What can be blamed on the absence of Manning is the mistakes from the coaching staff that Manning hid. 

He was so smart is his play-calling that there was nothing the coaching staff had to say or do.

That's why it's time for a new voice in the Colts locker room.

After inheriting everything from Dungy, Caldwell went 14-2 and a trip to the Super Bowl, but now that he has the reins for himself, the Colts as of today are 10-11 in the season-and-a-half after.

These are the top two best scenarios for a new head coach for the Indianapolis Colts.
