08:03 AM ET 10.11 | It's no secret Peyton Manning acts as another coach in Indianapolis while he's on the field, but he took things to a new level Sunday. Per a source, when the Colts called their first timeout of the first half with Indianapolis driving for the game's first touchdown, it was Manning signaling to the official for the timeout. After Manning, who was on the Indianapolis sideline, began to signal for the timeout to be called, the Colts coaching staff followed suit and got the official's attention to get the timeout called. The Colts actually called two timeouts on that drive -- one with 11:11 to play on first-and-10 from the Kansas City 47-yard line, and the second with 8:53 to go in the first quarter and facing third-and-2.

Does ANYBODY really care that the NBA isn't playing? Serious.

No surprise from this.... He's been coaching and calling TO's there for years.

Nope. Not at all.

Apparently Caldwell is clueless on the sidelines. Watch yourself bro. Peyton is going to take over before you know it. Defense is a joke in Indy.

Wonder if he'll be in New York for the draft.

I think it's great if they cancel the whole season, that means I don't have to tolerate a really bad All-Star game.

And they still lost..

This would make for great conversation..... In the NBA threads.

It wasn't because of clock management that is for sure. KC isn't the cream of the NFL and the Colts just can't pull it together offensively or defensively.

Seriously just fire Caldwell now and let Peyton HC and then he can be the first player/coach in the NFL in a very long time next year. I mean he is the coach there anyways, might as well make it official.

That would be an upgrade. Caldwell looks like a mannequin on the sideline. Being a calm, even-keeled coach is fine but showing a pulse on occasion would be good, too.

Not at all, I'm actually happy that I don't have to sit through NBA highlights during sportscenter now.

Him and his Dad could then buy the team, and he could be owner, coach, player

I don't care, but my daughter really loves watching the game. She's a big Celtics fan. That's the only sport she watches, so I'd like to see them get their act together.

But really, it's basketball, right? Just watch the last 5 minutes of the season, and you've seen it all.
