OK, we all knew that Peyton Manning was the glue that held the Indianapolis Colts together.
But no one expected the Colts to be in the shambles they are after a 62-7 primetime loss to the New Orleans Saints dropped them to 0-7.
The situation has deteriorated so quickly that less than two years removed from a Super Bowl appearance, Jim Caldwell's coaching ability and his job are being called into question. Veteran center Jeff Saturday said the Colts got "out-coached" on a local radio show after the shellacking Sunday night. And Indianapolis Star columnist Bob Kravitz is wondering aloud if Caldwell will survive the carnage that has become the Colts' 2011 season.
The Colts' train has already jumped the proverbial tracks. The only question now is how deepy into the ravine it will crash.
