  1. That's always been my approach with Pagano, but as far as the roster goes, I'm sure he had his hand in that as well. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can pull off with an NFL caliber roster, but I'm tempering my expectations, & I'd be surprised if he gets extended.
  2. Yeah I thought about that as well. I've also considered that maybe Cam just heals ridiculously fast, while Luck is on pace for the more realistic recovery time.
  3. Well, unfortunately, we kind of have to. Pagano is, after all, the 2nd most tenured coach in Indianapolis Colts history. And the biggest complaint amongst Colts fans the past few years, unanimously, has been that even with a great franchise QB in place, we're still not able to get over the hump and beat the Patriots. So as long as Belichick's the coach in New England, he IS the measuring stick.
  4. Total D: 31st Pass YPG: 31st Rush YPG: 17th 3rd Down Conversion: 28th Opp. Comp %: 23rd Opp. Passer Rating: 20th You can win championships with these kind of defenses, sure, as long as you don't have to worry about your coach inexplicably using a TO, losing a challenge, or any other number of bad moves a coach can make in that scenario. They were tied for 2nd in INTs, and tied for 7th for fumble recoveries, which put them at 3rd for creating turnovers. So yes, they were very opportunistic, that was their 1 redeeming quality, certainly good coaching has something to do with that. But in just about every other stat, they were mediocre to bad, and if not for having an offense that can simply outscore other teams at will, a defense like that would normally cost a team wins. Most New England fans I know still think to this day that that unit was the worst defense in the Belichick/Brady era.
  5. This might be the Colts' offense biggest weakness: they're very bad at identifying what the defense is willing to give, and instead usually play right into their hands by calling the worst possible play at the worst possible time.
  6. My understanding was that rotator cuff is worse. But I clearly have no idea, because Cam's already throwing, while Luck's still a few weeks out, and had his surgery months prior to Newton.
  7. You sure Belichick didn't do exactly that in 2011? Sure, their offense was good, but their defense ranked 31st overall, yet they still managed 13-3 record, and a Super Bowl berth. Do you honestly think that happens if Pagano is coaching that team?
  8. Make no mistake, I'm not rooting for Pagano to fail. I'd love nothing more than to see him coach the team all the way to the Super Bowl, and get carried off the field on the player's shoulders after they win. But I haven't seen anything in the last 5 years that make me think he's going to all the sudden turn into mid-80s Bill Parcells. The best odds that I would give him to get extended are 50/50. From a personnel standpoint, Chris Ballard invested a lot of resources into the defensive side of the ball, so Pagano (the defensive guru) better turn that unit into something respectable, or else he's going to get his walking papers and Ballard's going to bring in his guy.
  9. Interesting tidbit of info that I just noticed: after this season, Pagano will have been the Colts head coach for the same amount of time that Tony Dungy was. So if he gets extended, he'll pass up Dungy for seasons with the Colts. For that to happen, I think Irsay would have to be out of his mind, because we all know Pagano isn't half the coach that Dungy was. Dungy's teams were always prepared, well disciplined, and usually one of the least penalized teams in the league. We get none of that with Pagano. Now, I don't loathe or hate Pagano as much as a lot of people do, but the guy is not an elite football coach by any stretch, and barring some type of miraculous deep playoff run, I have a really hard time seeing him getting extended beyond this year.
  10. Yep, hoping to see one of these vids for Luck sooner than later...
  11. Solid article, terrible headline. Luck's in the 2nd year of a 6-year contract, and just getting ready to hit his prime, he's not "at a crossroads." QBs who's careers ARE at a crossroads: Alex Smith, Andy Dalton, Colin Kaepernick, Blake Bortles. Luck will smash teams once the OL & defense catches up to his level of play. I'm not sure we can say that about the other 3 guys.
  12. Rams picked him up not even 24 hours later, they seem to like what the see. Hopefully it pans out for him.
  13. INTs seems about right, passes defensed is what seemed low to me.
  14. I don't disagree, I'm mostly basing it off this list, & a little bit by the forum's infatuation with him. Overall, I think he's in the 10-12 range.
  15. The only thing I gathered from that list is that Bruce Arians might honestly be the most overrated coach in the NFL. Not saying he shouldn't be rated higher than Pagano, but I'd definitely take Sean Payton, Mike Zimmer, or Dan Quinn over Arians in a heartbeat.
