Hello Houston :)


I usually ask this in the weekly pre-game threads, yet this week I was Firefighting the Cassel Sucks Crowd.

What is the Houston Management Staff like? I have asked each week the SD, Cleveland, and San Francisco fans. Very forthcoming and informative answers which led me to this synopsis of thought:

So I ask every week about the teams Management.
So far.
San Diego is a mess with AJ Smith withholding talent from Norv Turner that doesn’t really know how to use it anyway.
Cleveland is a mess with a New President Holmgren and his Assistant passing guru to help the OC and Mangini implement the West Coast scheme.
San Francisco is a mess with Singletary trying to motivate emotionally the vast talent he has aquired and not teaching them HOW to play the game. Out with the OC Jimmy Raye.

So what is the Colts story?

What does Christenson do?
How is Caldwell helping after Dungy put him in charge?
Do you all have a Defensive Coordinator?
Is Bill large and in charge of everything Draft and talent aquisition and scheme?

Which I asked the Colts last week.

Christensen does the same thing as the last guy. He sits with Peyton and develops a plan And throughout the game gives Peyton suggestions and observations.

Caldwell just calls timeouts at the wrong times (sensitive area), but in all seriousness, he does essentially nothing different from Dungy.

Our defensive coordinator either can’t get the defense to adjust quickly, or he is incapable of adjusting his philosophy to match the game plan. At this point there have been enough breakdowns by players that I’m not ready to lay blame at his feet alone.

And yes, Polian, aka teh devil, runs basically everything, although at this moment his sun is taking over drafting (supposedly). Talent acquisition is basically kept in the family.

So, Who owns the team?  Bill Polian?

No, Polian and his family are just the GMs of the team Jim Irsay is the current owner, and his two children are likely to inherit the team as it makes up something like 75% of their family’s wealth.

Still, I don’t see the Polian’s leaving their position of GM any time soon. Bill’s son Chris is already starting to take over a number of the duties of GM, and looks to be getting a head start on being a fully functional GM in the coming years.

What How does a “Family” become the GM.

Thank God Carl Peterson had no Children.

GM is not a legacy position, Sorry.

Sorry, That blows my mind :( That is NO way to run a business

Well, Houston what is your Ownership like and your coaching? Hopefully better than what I see so far this year :)
