Please Caldwell....Please fire the strength and Conditioning Coach right now. Football outsiders have a very good article on the status of injuries in the NFL for the past ten years and the Colts are sadly in the second place for having the most injuries and also having the injuries with the most impact. I will not paste the article here but there are clear statistics to back up this claim.
It is not even funny anymore. 3 Safeties gone, 3 WR's hurt with different injuries. OL decimated . Peyton taking shots in the game . Caldwell if you can do one thing to massively improve this team , that would be to fire the strength and Conditioning coach.We cannot make a excuse of this year in and year out blaming the football gods.
1.Either it is our small defense that is getting hurt more playing against bigger defenses.
2.Or it is lack of proper strength and conditioning that is causing this problem.
3.Or it is lack of motivation on the part of players like Kelvin Hayden/Phillip Wheeler/Ryan Diem which forces others like Addai/Powers/Gary Brackett to attempt to clean up the mistake and take a huge shot to their body.
I am simply tired of hearing of all these injuries.God it seems like eternity we have been making excuses about defeats ...so and so great player was not on the field ...hence we could not win.
BP and Caldwell if you are serious about making the playoffs.Fire the COnditioning Coach like now.
