Default Tony Dungy is resigning as coach of the Colts

Wow. I'm stunned. I thought for sure he'd be back.

News conference at 4 pm.

Default Re: Tony Dungy is resigning as coach of the Colts

I can't say I'm surprised since he has basically spoke as a year-to-year coach for the last three years and delayed his decision until the end of each season. I wish him well.

How do you think this will affect the Colts? With a much softer out of division schedule next year I would love for the teams in our division to go through some change and a rocky period.

Colts losing their coach
Tennessee going with Kerry Collins, who'll be 37-38 next season and potentially losing Big AL
Jacksonville was already crappy this year

Wow. AFC South could be ready for a change

this is the best possible news for the Texans right now. However, I respect Dungy more than any other coach in the league, and wish him well in whatever he decides to do with his retirement.

Default Re: Tony Dungy is resigning as coach of the Colts

Sorry, I don't have any love for a head coach that makes a decision to leave a starting QB in when a game is out of hand and allows his OC and QB to throw deep in that situation.

I wouldn't expect a huge dropoff in the Colts..the guy they hired is already there and so there won't be that transition. And they've known this was was a strong possibility so it's not a kick in the teeth or anything.

Running up the score is a controversial issue. If the opposing players don't like it, they know how to stop it. The best way to ensure a win is to keep playing the game until the clock reads 0. We know what its like to go into conservative mode at the end of games and have it bite you

I don't consider any game out of hand after seeing a certain team lose after being up 35-3.

Default Re: Tony Dungy is resigning as coach of the Colts

I'm a bit surprised, but not shocked. I think Tony wants to concentrate on his life again and I think the best years of the Colts are behind them.

He's a class act and the NFL is losing a good guy. But I'm happy for him and his family.

I'm the first to agree with that philosophy.

But you can do it with removing Manning. I always thought someday Manning would get sacked and injured in that situation. I didn't wish for it to happen, but had it happened I would have blamed Dungy. I would have less of a problem if Sorgi were throwing the bombs.

As far as comparing TGTSNBM (western New York), the Oilers didn't necessarily go conservative. They went cold. Ice cold. Warren decided he couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

I think the Colts will continue to be the Colts that's always been our greatest nemisis because of their QB Peyton Manning, who has no intentions of going anyway, in spite of losing their current HC.

Sad to see him go. He's the main reason I've pulled for the Colts in our division when it was pretty obvious our Texans were going to bottom out. A classy guy!! I wish him well.

I don't think so. He's said many times that if he decides to call it quits, it's for good.

I'm not sure he'll be back either; he has a career waiting as a motivational speaker and author. I think he's done with coaching.

Default Re: Tony Dungy is resigning as coach of the Colts

Until our President-elect won the election, I dunno if there was any man who was such a compelling role-model for young African-American men as Coach Dungy ? And from what I've heard him say helping troubled young adults in the Indy area will be something he devotes his attention to after coaching. And he also said he wouldn't be taking a year or two off then be back into coaching, but rather when he left the Indy HC job that would be the end of coaching for him. Period.
