    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>SAN DIEGO -- Ed Werder's <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3806794" shape="rect" target="_blank">report</a> that Tony Dungy will contemplate retiring after the Colts' season is over comes as no surprise. It's become clear in recent years that such a period of reflection will be an annual deal for him for the remainder of his career.</p> <p>There is some suggestion floating around that it could leave the Colts in flux the way Brett Favre uncertain future had done to the Packers. That's a stretch. Dungy will take a reasonable period of time, consider whether he wants to continue or go on to the next stage of his life that will be heavy with charitable works, and give the team a decision.</p> <p>If he goes, associate head coach Jim Caldwell has already been tabbed to take over and the vibe of the franchise under him would not change dramatically.</p> <p>Which way is Dungy leaning? I don't think even his inner circle knows, because I don't think he knows. We've got to let it play out, and the Colts are hoping none if it's set in motion for another month.</p>

    I don't blame him. I like the guy even if he is the Colts Coach.

    I like Dungy as well....but I hope this doesn't start turning into a Favre II scenario.
