The Indianapolis Colts underperformed this season as they finished with a 4-12-1 record and missed the NFL playoffs.

It resulted in the firing of head coach Frank Reich, who was replaced by Jeff Saturday, a man who had only coached at the high school level in the past.

Saturday has become a candidate to become the Colts’ permanent head coach, drawing much criticism across the league.

But he’s not their only candidate, and one of their other prospects is Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn.

At the start of this season, many expected the Lions, who went 3-13-1 in 2021, to have another miserable season.

But after starting 1-6, they surprisingly came alive, winning eight of their last 10 games and poised for a place in the wild card playoffs in the NFC.

After struggling a lot on the defensive side of football in September and October, Detroit showed some improvement, keeping six opponents under 20 points in the final 10 competitions of the schedule.

The Colts, meanwhile, finished the year 27th in total yards passed and 30th in points and rushing touchdowns allowed.

Their low point came in Week 15 when they took a 33-0 lead at halftime against the Minnesota Vikings, only to lose by three points in overtime.

At the same time, Indianapolis also needs help on the offensive.

Quarterback Matt Ryan appears to be on the decline, while star running back Jonathan Taylor missed six games with an ankle injury.

But if Ryan gets back on form and Taylor is healthy for the full 2023 season, the Colts should have a real chance of returning to the playoffs, especially since they play in one of the league’s weakest divisions.
