Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star made a return visit to PFT Live on Tuesday for part of our ongoing coverage of what I’ve dubbed, against my better judgment, the Polianoscopy in Indianapolis.
Kravitz dropped a bombshell during an intriguing 15-minute chat. Kravitz believes that the Colts, who continue to employ Jim Caldwell as the head coach but neither Vice Chairman Bill Polian or G.M. Chris Polian, may already have reached out to Jeff Fisher. Kravitz also thinks that Fisher would then have input on who the next G.M. would be, creating a package deal.
At a time when Jeff Fisher has been linked to pretty much every head-coaching vacancy and Fisher is believed to be looking for a place with a great quarterback, Indianapolis would seem to be at the top of his list.
It also would provide an occasion for every media outlet in America to dust off the 2009 video of Fisher, coach of the then-winless Titans, donning a Peyton Manning jersey because, as Fisher said, “I just wanted to feel like a winner.”
Right now, that’s a feeling that Colts owner Jim Irsay is trying to restore. Maybe Fisher will be the guy to do it.
