    You really want a guy that just inexplicably walked away from his job in the middle of the season to be our next head coach?

    Maybe they wanna make sure he's in shape and healthy?

    This team is a mess right now, and not because we are working out Nate but because we have to because we cut him in the first place.

    We win all our remaining home games and win at the Jets and the falling Vikings. We face Bengals in the WC at the LOS and beat them as usual. We then go to Denver and Luck has a monster game and we win in overtime. For the AFCCG we go to New England. Brady gets locked in the portable toilet with the ball boy and misses the game. Jimmy Garappolo bangs his head on a secret camera and is out due to concussion. Jacoby Brissett starts and drives the Pats on a last minute come from behind series until Josh McNary makes a game winning tackle as time expires to send the Colts to Houston. Nah, only kidding......about the Josh McNary tackle.

    I agree with a lot of what SkyBane is saying. There's a lot of trollish baiting going around. Only unlike a few other football blogs I visit, people seem to get caught up in it here a lot. I think the Mods are doing a good job of merging threads. For the excessively negative posts though you just gotta try to ignore and move on, because there are people who are willing to have an actual discussion who voice their problems. On the flip side though, there are quite a few instances where those posters with actual opinions get unfairly tossed in with the bad eggs. We're all here to talk football and that entails the good and the bad, and when we're playing like we have been it's probably gonna lean toward the latter. That's just the way fandom goes. Only other thing to do is to not feed the trolls which is a given on the internet.

    Turns out we worked out two other players as well...... and that seemed to not get posted here.... This is the tweet from Adam Caplan of ESPN...... #Colts worked out DT Jordan Hill, ILB Nate Irving, LB Danny Lansanah.

    The whole situation was just stupid to begin with. Nobody is mistaking Nate Irving for Ray Lewis but he's a better player than Mcnary. What in the world made them keep Josh over Irving I dont even know. You want to stop the run and you cut the run stuffing backer for a guy who can't.

    I really like PFF, but I don't know how Castonzo is getting so much praise. I think his play has been pretty bad. This was also confusing for me. How does Luck rank third (as the title states) if he's "only behind Tom Brady". Wouldn't that make him 2nd? And how does a score of 88.9 come in just shy of his highest score, which was 88.4? Wouldn't he be on pace to have his best season ever, by those metrics?

    Bridgewater is all that is missing IMO. This season the Vikes were ready. Is it falling apart? I was a manager for 22 years and what would have happened if I walked off of my shift and said this is not working. WOW!!! I do think he looks sick, but then again so do I....:)

    Actually giving this some thought would lead to the conclusion that Norv Turner should not be the next head coach for any team.

    Oh, Dear God..... just shoot me now! If we were going to make an OC the HC after firing Pagano, it would more likely be Rob Cghudzinski than Norv Turner. And at this point neither is going to happen.

    Ugh, Hilton and his drops though. Goodness. With how good he's been, he's probably left a 100-150 yards and maybe a TD on the table because of them. Love him and woulldn't get rid of him, but please man, just catch the ball.

    Would have been awesome to get Collins. But I don't think the pats would trade us a water bottle.

    Practically everyday I am reminded of the fact that I am so glad that fans have no say in how a team is run. I think Grigs is a bad GM, I've stated that before, but if the Colts were to take the ideas of some of these fans the Colts would be getting the first pick in the draft every single year.
  22. 2 points
    Good Gawd. So Grigson drafts Haeg this year, in the 5th out of North Dakota State, but bullies Pagano into starting Good because Good is the project player due to the fact he was 7th round pick from Mars Hill? How can people make this stuff up? See, I would assume that Good is starting at RG over Haeg because Philbin and Pagano thinks he is better, or, because they want him to win the job because they want Haeg to win one of the backup tackle spots. The vision is for Haeg to eventually play OT, not G. And Good may very well play himself out of the RG spot, but its not like Pagano already wants him replaced and Grigson is demanding Pagano play him because he has pet fondness for Good.

    What am I missing........ who is on the bench that is more deserving of starting than Good?
  24. 2 points
    Correct, if the player isn't giving their best effort, it is a bad hire... they spend a lot of time evaluating more than talent, they also do research into attitudes and personalities. If they are signed and don't put out effort, first you cut them, then you blame the GM for bad hiring practices. This is why the NFL is smart in not having fully guaranteed contracts. You can get rid of the rubbish rather than being stuck with them like the NBA.

    Marty was wrongfully fired. For the 2006 playoff game vs NE, there was footage and stories of where he had specifically coached and told his players, including Marlon McCree "if you get an interception, GO DOWN". That was why they lost that game. Marty was not to blame. That interception turned fumble completely screwed their chances. San Diego has been a mess ever since firing Marty. The 2007 team that made the AFCCG, and then the 13-3 team in 2009 were almost like a "last hurrah" of that team he put together. Personally, I'm a big fan of Marty's Cleveland teams that had Bernie Kosar. Those were fun teams and similar circumstances to his time in SD leading to his firing - an owner who wanted a SB win right away let him go, and then the team collapsed without him. Bernie Kosar was never the same after Marty was gone, his final good year was in 1989 and then going into the 90's, he never turned back into the MVP candidate he once was. His Kansas City teams were pretty good too...They often had high ranked defenses, and he resurrected Marcus Allen's career when he looked like he was done. I like Tom Coughlin, and I think it's unfair that his final years in NY with a losing record sum him up as a coach. It's totally true, he took Jacksonville to the AFCCG twice. The 1996 playoff upset vs Denver was one of the biggest upsets ever. There was also this! Coughlin's Jaguars completely humiliated Dan Marino and ended the long career of one of the best QB's ever with one of the most humiliating playoff losses ever.

    Tom Coughlin took Jacksonville to TWO AFC Championship appearances, including one with a scrubby 9-7 team in 1996 who won two road playoff games in dramatic upsets, including the big one over a 14-2 Denver team that year. The second appearance, was the 14-2 team who's only losses that year were both to Tennessee (and a 3rd in the title game) A lot of people think he was a bad coach, but he did win in Jacksonville to a respectable margin.

    And mcnary will be in the same boat too but really the chiefs are loaded at linebackers anyway

    I'm sure it's because McNary has "grit" and "keeps chopping wood" on a weekly basis. I bet on the practice field he's always "flying around and making plays". Or whatever else cliches Pagano uses to justify playing under-talented individuals who shouldn't even sniff the field on a contending team.

    Speaking only for myself here Df26, I just wanna see us a beat a team that always mops the floor with us when we face them...Namely, Pittsburgh & NE. When INDY does that, I will go okay, we've turned a corner here & we can hang with the Big dogs & compete for a SB soon. Giving Denver a run for their money is nice, but beating a BB squad or Mike Tomlin squad means pundits & franchises have to take us seriously now. I'm not naive. I can be patient, but you got show me as a coaching staff we can generate a lead & close out games consistently. I'm tired of sighing & saying here we go again when I watch Colt games.

    I don't think it's a waste at all if you look at the big picture. No one, not even the biggest Colts homer, honestly thought this team was doing anything this year aside from maybe winning the division, so expectations were already pretty minimal. Compound that with the fact that we'll likely get a high draft pick, some regime changes, and a really nice cap number, I think we're looking solid moving forward. It's tough to endure and watch the team play bad, sure, but in the long run, it'll ultimately work out for the better.

    Just wanted to say, I've come back to this board a few times to say I was wrong about a player or a move I wanted the Colts to make. I'm just so rarely wrong that I don't have to do it much. ;) In that line, I want to admit I was wrong with my initial post in this thread, some of the comments from the fans are way more embarrassing than the Colts play on the field.

    No we're not career football people... or whatever you seem to be going for here. Of course we're not directors or producers either, but we can tell when a movie sucks. Neither are we music industry people, but we can tell when a song sucks. No one goes to a bad movie and thinks, well, I better not give my opinion on this piece of crap because these directors and producers know more about movie making than I do. Similarly, an NFL game is entertainment, nothing more, nothing less, and the consumers of that entertainment, those who purchase tickets, merchandise, pay for DirecTV, etc., will, until the end of time, point out crap when they see it and have wasted hard earned money on it. Beyond that, I fail to understand why some have this compulsion - a Colts fan's duty - to defend Grigson and Chuck. Grigson and Chuck are no more the Colts to me than Lindy Infante and Jim Mora were the Colts. I was a Colts fan long before they arrived. I'll be a Colts fan long after they are gone.

    Maybe so but if this season is indeed lost, we might as well keep him out there gaining experience. Also, who do we replace him with? Farley?

    Elway did not want to play for Robert Irsay and he had other options. Only a complete * though would compare a Robert Irsay run organization to a Jim Irsay run organization. I, like many, think Grigson is a bad GM, but making a bad hire does not mean it's a poorly run organization it just means it was a bad hire. It's obvious that Jim Irsay loves the Colts and the city if Indy and he has made it his life. Robert Irsay made it clear that he wanted to own a football team, he didn't care which team he owned, he did not care about the players or the organization, he only cared for what owning an NFL team did for him. But Jim Irsay, who does things like took a player, Gill, who played a few snaps in two games for the Colts in the regular season, when it was discovered had a serious drinking problem(found in a ditch, barefoot and unable to stand or talk), paid for his rehab and kept him on the roster so he would get a paycheck while going through rehab. Or giving a SB ring to Edge, because as Irsay told him, he may not have been on the active roster when the Colts won the Superbowl but he was still a Colt and responsible for helping the Colts get there. No, the Colts are in a spot because of some bad hires and bad decisions but that is not the same as a poorly run organization, especially not poorly run like his father did.

    Every 2-3 years? Last season was year 4. That's more than enough time to evaluate Chuck and Grigson......especially Grigson.

    Well, venting within reason. Using this place as a verbal dumping ground gets old for a lot of posters. I mean, some derail every thread they can with obnoxious comments some take poor play as license to spew obscenity all over the joint. Where as GOOD posters state their opinion without nonstop beating us over the head with it and leave the garbage out

    Could be 6 and 0? Sure - and I could have married Heather Locklear and won the Lottery. But I didn't. And the Colts are 3-5...on their way to 5-11.
