      • Peter King: When, Dan, the hot guy on the head coaching circuit is Jeff Fisher and Fisher, to relax a little bit and to consider his options, is duck hunting today in the Midwest. He will be at the Rams practice facility tomorrow to finish his fact-finding. Then Monday and Tuesday he'll set about making his decision between the Miami Dolphins or the St. Louis Rams. But one thing, if he wants to make the most money, he'll go to Miami because Miami owner Stephen Ross will outbid the Rams.

      • Dan Patrick: What do you know about the Colts situation? You spent a lot of years there.
        Tony Dungy: Well, I've known Jim Irsay for 10 years. He's going to make these decisions with his heart as much as his head. So I believe Jim Caldwell will be the coach, Peyton Manning, if he is healthy enough to play, he will be their quarterback and I now believe they're gonna draft Andrew Luck with the first pick.
        Dan Patrick: So, Caldwell will remain as head coach.
        Tony Dungy: I believe that.
        Dan Patrick: OK. Forgone conclusion, it's always been Andrew Luck they were going to take?
        Tony Dungy: Well, not necessarily. Bill Polian, I know, when he was there, he was looking at a lot of tape on Robert Griffin, and he had gotten comfortable with Robert Griffin and he would think outside the box; he picked Edgerrin James rather than Ricky Williams. So with Bill there I don't know, but now I think it's Andrew Luck.
