    John Simon Interview

    I don't think he meant a "power conference" in that it is stacked with teams that play "power schemes." I think he just meant it's a strong conference now; all the teams are talented. The AFC South used to be one of the worst conferences in the league, a reality which was alluded to immediately before the "power conference" comment.

    Jack Mewhort

    Yep, I'm with ya. Agree 100% on Mewhort. At the right price, he is at least giving everything he has.

    From what I have heard (from a variety of reliable sources that cover our beloved Colts), Moncrief is 99.9% gone. I believe JMV alluded to the fact that Ballard was very, very disappointed with how Moncrief played in a contract year, irrespective of the QB circumstances. The sentiment on Moncrief is that he is a "fraud" in the sense that he has all the measurables you'd want from an NFL WR, but is sorely lacking in the "game" and production categories. I mean, Moncrief lost snaps to Aiken. -=Shudders=-

    Welcome Coach Reich!!

    In the PC, Reich mentioned that prior to the playoffs commencing, he spoke to his agent and told him he wasn't going to take any texts or calls related to job interviews. Reich "went dark" so he could totally prepare for the Eagles' playoff games. Hope that helps.

    Welcome Coach Reich!!

    Wow. Reich dominated that presser. Incredibly impressed. Blew away my expectations.

    Is Kevin Bowen incorrect on this?

    For sure! The more I read, the more confident I become in the (likely) hire. This staff is going to have a lot of young, energetic, hungry, and most importantly, intelligent guys. That is exactly what this young team, in the midst of a total rebuild, needs. The McD pullout of '18 (that sounds wrong now that I typed it) could be one heck of a blessing at the end of the day. Like, Manning over Leaf type of blessing. Or Edge over R. Williams.

    Wasn't trying to imply that they were. Was trying to imply that Ballard is pretty familiar with a lot of folks throughout the KC organization, some of whom probably had some intel re: Sirianni. KC obviously had quite the regime change following the 2012 season, and I believe Sirianni was on to San Diego by 2013.

    Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star on Sirianni: "Sirianni seems to be respected. The story later notes that he's a 'young coach who many at Chargers Park believe is poised to rise the NFL ranks.'" More from Holder on Sirianni's background and pedigree: https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2018/02/12/nick-sirianni-colts-offensive-coordinator-here-5-things-know/328471002/

    I removed them from the original post almost immediately, as soon as I discovered that they were typos. And, for the record, I was quoting the article directly. So that particular mistake was not mine. But I caught it anyway. This is the article in question, which claims (by way of typo, perhaps?) Sirianni was also interviewed for the HC spot: https://coltswire.usatoday.com/2018/02/12/indianapolis-colts-news-interview-nick-sirianni-offensive-coordinator-job/

    Good question. I can see both the Ballard (Sirianni was Chiefs' quality control coach at one point) and Reich connections with this hire. Everything I've read about Sirianni has seemed very positive. He did a lot with San Diego's WR corps, which isn't necessarily the most talented (especially when it is without Allen).
