    So Tony "The Fraud" Dungy coaches his team to 13-3 with a bye and a home playoff game. But they lose their first playoff game as big favorites.

    From that point forward, Tony Dungy pulls a "Lord Favre" and has the Tony Dungy retirement show before, during, and after important NFL playoff games.

    He just can't get enough of the spotlight, fueling retirement stories for over a week after his choke job. Now, right before the superbowl, he announces he's coming back for another year. Right when it dies down just a little bit, with 2 weeks before the SuperBowl, this douche has to come out and grab some attention for himself.

    Quiet Strength my ass. This guy is the biggest ******* Fraud in the NFL.


    Someone please tell me, if this is that important of a decision, why on Earth was it made so quickly? There was plenty of time to think about this decision more, without making it a big show.

    EDIT: i originally typed "14-2", but i forgot that Dungy being the scum-sucking Fraud coward p.o.s. that he is, rigged the last game of the season so that another team in his division could get in the playoffs. SCUMBAG

    He waited a week after getting bounced out of the playoffs, that's no Favre show.

    You complain about it being a show, dragging on. Yet you wanted him to wait longer. WTF?

    A week seems reasonable for a decision of this sort. Much moreso than Favre. And the Colts (by virtue of their early exit) are starting the postseason planning.

    I also think the fact the announcement being made on MLK day is no accident at all... if not for the significance of today then he'd wait another couple of days for the past-CG clutter to clear.

    He didn't even have to create the impression that he was going to step away.

    It's not like that was made up by the media and he said "yeah good point, maybe i will retire".

    The **** was made public and he wanted some spotlight. It did not have to be this way. But since he can't get any attention by sucking as a coach, he has to do this.

    He's a FRAUD.

    Way to steal the attention from the King's holiday Dungy! Pulling an A-Rod on MLK.

    Classless.

    He's going to have a change of heart and quit on the day of the Super Bowl. Then He'll have a vision and unretire in time for the draft.

    I'm sure more than a few Indy fans are ambivalent about this news.

    The Colts were 13-3 this season.

    Not to nitpick or anything. :D

    Dungy said last week that he would make his announcement "by next Monday", which is today. He had his timeline and he stuck to it.

    Maybe he meant 14-2 because the last game was rigged by the cheating Titans and Colts whose "classy" head coaches colluded to keep the Browns out of the playoffs so that they wouldn't have to play a real game. Ironically, that's why they lost in the playoffs IMO.

    Yup, I watched PTI today and they covered Dungy before going into the conference championship games. I immediately thought of A-Rod's announcement coming up in the eighth inning of game 4 of the WS and cameras going away from the game. Who cares, but Dungy could have waited until Tuesday, couldn't he? He's pretty dungy, IMO.

    What a disgusting rant by the thread starter. I guess dominating the pro football universe isn't enough for some people.

    His timing was more than ironic. After all, he referred to his coaching job as a "ministry." He is, indeed, Martin Luther Dungy.

    what is so disgusting about it?

    if you think it's disgusting, then blame Saint Dungy, he's the moron that caused all this.

    Or you could just mind your damn business.

    People around here have seen enough of Keegs that when he acts like a 12 year old they say "Good work, you're acting more mature!"

    What's next? Is Marvin Harrison going to have a "not retiring" press conference, followed by every member of the 53?

    Hey!!....Just in case you're wondering, I'm not retiring!

    Know what I'm doing now? Well, I'm goingto do the same thing next year.:D

    Dungy went through the very same process the last two years. You are making a big deal out of nothing. PFT should be blamed for the media frenzy. They posted the rumor when the Colts were preparing for the Chargers and started this whole storm.

    Why do you need a presser three years in a row to say you're not retiring.

    When it comes to attention and Dungy, I can only think of Mary Magdalene.

    For the past three years Dungy's status has been a regular topic among the press. He didn't bring it up, any more than he had his son kill himself. Which was the start of all this.

    So when Dungy's wife and child moved to Tampa a few weeks ago, why would anyone ever think his coaching status wouldn't be in question. OF COURSE it was. OF COURSE Dungy needed to make an announcement.

    Is there nothing the Colts do that won't be twisted into a further example of their "classlessness" by some Pats fans?

    Here's a chance for Dungy to support his family long distance -- hey, absebce makes the heart grow finder, and give him more credibility as a coach when he speaks for gay-bashing groups.

    Every head coach has a postseason presser.

    Yup this is true. It's also true some have them lots earlier than others :D

    And FYI today was not a post season press conference. It was to announce a non retirement. I just don't get it. This could have been handled with a lot less drama by issuing a press release.

    So is Shanahan going to hang it up? Pretty crappy season.

    I'm sorry, I didn't catch the news stories about whether he'll retire.:D

    No wonder everyone hates Pats fans, we got guys making fun of another coach the day after we're in the superbowl. Give it up before you give us all a bad name, oh wait....you already have.....

    Why would Shanahan retire? When the Broncos went 7-9 in 2007, they were the last NFL team standing this decade that hadn't endured a losing season.
