And we’re going to be a playoff team and we’re going to have these issues, Ballard said, via Stephen Holder of the Indy Star. It becomes a slippery slope. We have rules in place for a reason. I think they’re good rules. It gives you a chance to interview and then, after the season, whatever happens, happens. In our case, he changed his mind and we moved on.
If the Colts were not vociferously going after a rule change, it’s easy to see why the rest of the ownership group would stick with the status quo.
The Colts rebounded by hiring Frank Reich, and the situation could very well work out better for Indy in the long run.
