  1. Who will be the next HC of the Indianapolis Colts?

    Nothing delusional really. Just take your time and read the entire post. He is only retained if he finishes strong with Luck. Pagano can than prove his argument with the results to back him up. Pretty hard to argue with results. It's all about winning. BTW if we do hire a new coach it's extremely likely it's going to be Schottenheimer. He isn't being brought up at all and I would think he's the frontrunner and most likely replacement.
  2. Offensive Line is Offensive

    You can also blame an inexperienced quarterback who can not recognize defensive changes and can not audible out of a play and get into a better play. This is where Luck makes a huge difference. This is a makeshift OL with an inexperienced QB. Not a good pairing but with Luck they have a much better chance to succeed.
  3. Time to look to next season

    I think at the close of last season he thought his OL was set with the strong showing of Clark and Haag to close the season. He had his meeting with Ballard to discuss the line and I think he convinced Ballard that he had his starters and he only needed depth. Therefore no major upgrades in the off season despite there being many quality starters available in FA. Even Irsay made a comment that the OL was fixed. We drafted for depth with Bond and Banner and Banner is gone. Haag and Clark lose their starting slots and then injuries hit and now forced to start Clark at guard and hope he improves. Big miscalculations on his part regarding talent. Just my opinion of course but that's how I see it.
  4. Who will be the next HC of the Indianapolis Colts?

    I think Chuck will stay if Luck comes back and gets us into the race. He might not even have to make he playoffs. If the team plays hard and improves he has the argument he can win with a healthy Luck versus a rookie QB just added to the roster. He will change some position coaches and probably make Schottenheimer OC. In all fairness he has a strong argument and I can see Irsay and Ballard giving him next year with his franchise QB. Again I think he has to finish strong with a healthy Luck in order to stay.
  5. Offensive Line is Offensive

    The line was okay in the 1st. half but the Titan defense was pretty vanilla. Second half they ramped up the blitzes and more stunting. Clark was lost in the second half. Starting Clark was a desperation move. Maybe he can improve but learning a new position on the fly during the regular season could have terrible consequences. I blame this OL mess on Philbin. Poor coaching and poor evaluator of talent? Not sure which it is. They didn't go hard after the OL last offseason season. Looks like Philbin thought he had his starters and was he wrong. Ballard needs to make the OL a major if not THE major area of focus this offseason. After this start Irsay should demand it. No ands ifs or buts about it!
  6. Time to look to next season

    Philbin's a joke. Way overrated.
  7. Time to look to next season

    He needs more time with a fully healthy Luck. The defense is improving. It all changes with a healthy Luck. Only fair thing to do.
  8. Time to look to next season

    We win this game and we have a winning record and in 1st place in our division with Luck for the earlier games as well. Our defense isn't perfect but markedly improved. No defense is going to hold up in the second half when they are constantly on the field. We had zero 1st downs in the 3rd. qtr last night. With Luck we move the ball and score. Luck vs. Brissett. Are you kidding me. No comparison. One game back ten more to play. Far from over.
  9. Five Weeks in a Row - Ahead in the 3rd Quarter

    The OL is a mess. They said it last night. How many different combinations? Lead the league. Experimenting with players at different positions, Clark at G for example. He looked good to start but was lost when they started to blitz and stunt in the second half. Brissett still makes rookie mistakes and he will for awhile. We are asking too much of him right now but we have no choice. Only a game back with ten to go. That's a lot of games but when Luck returns who knows?
  10. This playcalling has to go ASAP

    Fourth and one with the game on the line and you call a bootleg. Okay, problem is Brissett runs back five yards before heading for the sideline! What kind of play design is that? You aren't playing grandmothers. These are fast men. Terrible design IMO. And if a coach needs to go Philbin should be 1st. He has everybody fooled. Ballard met with all the coaches when he was hired and Philbin obviously told him he was satisfied with his OL. Especially with the way Clark and Haag closed out last year. Was he ever wrong. They drafted a few guys in the later rounds and Banner, a fourth is already gone. All of those FA linemen out there last year and nothing. We need a new OL coach who can find and develop players. His incompetence is way overlooked.
  11. Martavis Bryant requesting a trade out of Pittsburgh per Rappaport

    I wonder if a straight up swap for Aiken would make more sense. From what I remember Ballard is from KC and they gave a pretty good player a second chance. I can't remember his name.
  12. Ian Rappaport is reporting that Martavis Bryant has asked the Steelers to trade him. Not a happy camper I guess. Anyone think the Colts might be interested and at what price? Would a straight up swap for Moncrief make sense?
  13. Colts vs Titans predictions

    Do you believe it? What a crazy year and Andrew hasn't taken a snap. Unbelievable!
  14. Tolzien back to the Packers?

    With Aaron Rodgers out and Luck getting closer I wonder if they would be interested in bringing Tolzien back. Thoughts?
  15. Kuharsky: Mariota Will Play vs Colts

    That's okay. Bring him on. The bigger they are the harder they fall.
