Winless Colts make major changes
(AFP) ??? 1 hour ago
INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana ??? The winless Indianapolis Colts, off to an 0-11 National Football League start for the first time since 1986, fired defensive coordinator Larry Coyer on Tuesday.

The Colts also named Dan Orlovsky their new starting quarterback, giving him his first start since 2008. Indianapolis travels to New England on Sunday hoping to change their luck and avoid a totally winless campaign.

"We feel this is the most effective and realistic way to move forward and win games this season," Colts coach Jim Caldwell said. "We appreciate the effort and hard work Larry Coyer put forth in his three years with the Colts."

Colts linebacker coach Mike Murphy will take over guiding the defensive unit while Orlovsky becomes the latest fill-in for the injured Peyton Manning, who has missed the entire season following neck surgery.


It's a start I guess!

Well when you sit 0-15, do you think you will be able to win your last game on the road @ Jacksonville? Otherwise you will join the ranks of Detroit as one of those teams.
