Did this with Arthur Blank and now Irsay.

The Colts lose a legend in Manning. Fired their head coach and GM.
Hire a 1st time coach who is fighting cancer and they have an interim coach annnnd a rookie qb.

They got several of the same players from a horrible team from last year but look at them.
They are in the playoff hunt and Luck should get the most wins by a rookie qb.

So yeah. Its all about ownership.

I'm the one always standing up for JR, but I can't argue with you on this one Pstall.

JR is a good owner he just needs to hire a younger GM that understands the new league.

JR has a chance to redeem himself, but he really has to choose wisely If he screws the next regime up, I don't think the fans will come back.

It was a bad head coaching hire. We got the QB... need to build around the guy, look how many weapons that Ryan has around him! Look how many Luck has they used an entire draft to ensure his success.

Cam has Smitty. Olsen. Annnnnd not much else that is above league average.

Big Ben went 13-0 rookies season. 14-1 including playoffs. Don't Luck beats that.

We should do everything we can to ensure the QBs success. O-line, WRs, and OCs FIRST...then worry about shoring up the defense and get a damn kicker.

It's all about playing with passion Which the Panthers are playing with none...but passion only gets you so far when you come against the juggernauts...case and point is on CBS now.
