Colts ask for permission to talk to Eliot Wolf about G.M. job

Eliot Wolf got another raise out of the Packers after pulling out of the running for the 49ers job. He may be about to parlay a surprise opening into another one.

According to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, the Colts have asked for permission to interview Wolf for the job formerly held by Ryan Grigson.

The Packers blocked the 34-year-old Wolf from interviewing with the Lions last offseason, but that’s reasonable considering their presence in the same division.

It’s also reasonable to wonder if they’ll be talking to Wolf’s co-worker Brian Gutekunst as well, since he also interviewed with the 49ers.

The Colts are also expected to interview the Seattle tandem of Trent Kirchner and Scott Fitterer, along with Minnesota’s George Paton and internal candidate Jimmy Raye III.

  1. The Pack has created such great defenses under this guy. What defensively weak team wouldn’t want to hire him to run their personnel department? For the sarcastically challenged, that was sarcasm.

  2. The packers need to get rid of ted Thompson and give the gm job to wolf, and ted’s neglect on free agency has made our team mediocre and his draft choices have barely payed off and get rid of Dom Capers he does not know how to run a defense this train rack of a coaching staff has run for too long and needs to go

  3. As a Colts fan, all I want is a GM who is good at evaluating talent and can play well with others.

  5. It’s obvious to us all. Packer players, coaches and front office staff are among the most sought after personnel in the NFL.

    It’s better football.

    For better people.

  6. All these trolls teams that struggle to make it to the playoffs every couple years or so, the Packers have been to the playoffs eight consecutive years, three NFC conference championships and won a Superbowl…..The only team with more success than that is the Patriots…..The Packers have as stable a franchise, as great a facility and as good an office staff as there is in football.

  7. I couldn’t be more proud of this team, getting it done with duct tape and baling wire and not complaining. Rodgers played like he wanted to tear someone’s head off, and he tried. Good for him. I like that attitude. I’m already looking forward to next year, starting with the possibility of a sixth division crown in seven years and the ninth consecutive trip to the postseason.

    Let’s hear from all the experts how easy it is for their teams to do the same.

    Hello?

    Hello?

    Oh yes, the great Pack fan hypocrisy. All year long you say it’s all about championships, touting the 13 (wink, wink) you have. But now the season is over the measure of success is making the playoffs. Maybe those 3 consecutive embarrassments have lowered your standards, and making the playoffs is now the goal. Because if SB wins during the a-rodg era is truly the measure, than I can think of a couple more teams besides the pats that have had more success.

    Show me one comment predicting a championship. You can’t do anything unless you qualify for the postseason, so yes, that’s a goal. Duh.

    How did the Steelers do?

  10. stellar, did you even read my post? And the Steelers did not win the SB this year, so it was an unsuccessful season. I’m not happy they just made the playoffs, or even proud of them for making a run with duct tape and baking wire. I was embarrassed by the way they played in the afccg. I’m sure I’d feel different if I wasn’t a fan of the most successful franchise in the history of the NFL.
