Caldwell New Raven OC

64 posts in this topic

Harbaugh: Jim, we just had a three and out after attempting three runs in a row. Mix it up a bit.

Caldwell: (Blinks)

Harbaugh: Okay, you just got another three and out, but I like that you had a pass play in there. Keep mixing it up.

Caldwell: (Blinks)

Harbaugh: Hey Jim, we're down two scores now. We need to open up the offense a bit and get back in this game.

Caldwell: (Blinks)

Harbaugh: We're getting blown out here. Do you have anything in that playbook to get the offense going?

Caldwell: (Opens mouth... Blinks again)

Harbaugh: Oh ****.

That awkward moment when Jim admits that Peyton was the OC all of those years......I hate to say that about Jim because he's definitely my fraternity brother :-(

nupe??

Why is he suddenly the coordinator?

I heard Harbaugh fired him to make Joe flacco happy

We scored on our1st possession of the game and then could not do anything afterwards. We come out to start the 2nd half and have I believe a 14 play 80 yard drive for a TD. We then score on 2 other offensive possessions in the second half. That tells me that there were offensive adjustments made since we could move the ball and get points in the second half when we were unable to in the first half.

The only offensive adjustments made in the 2nd half were injuries. Justice and Satele leaving the game seemed to improve our protection slightly. You'd be better served to tell me what adjustments were made, as opposed to taking the lazy approach of saying, "points were scored, so adjustments were made." What did we do differently offensively in the 2nd half that we didn't try to do in the 1st? He didn't change his strategy at all. He called run plays from tight formations and continually called empty backfields on 3rd down, regardless of what happened the play before. He does that every game. So where are these adjustments you speak of?

You still haven’t answered my question about your general statement that the new guy is not much better than the old guy. You keep wanting to just use the last game as your proof weak as it is. We have scored in the second half and won games all year. If you are going to make general statements like you have, tell me how that is not making offensive adjustments.

I talked about the Titans game because YOU brought it up. I can give you several instances where he failed to make adjustments from half to half. The Detroit game, there were no adjustments made on offense. The key plays that sparked the victory came on broken plays. The bomb to Brazil, Luck was flushed from the pocket and took a shot down field. The game winning touchdown was also a broken play where Luck was chased from the pocket and hit Avery on the drag (which Arians himself admitted was actually the last read in the post game)...The New England game was a colossal failure to adjust on Arians part. He played right into the Pats hands continuing to call deep shots down the field because of what he perceived to be a weak secondary. We had the lead early but literally passed our way out of that game. No adjustments were made when it was obvious their pass rush wasn't allowing Luck to deliver the ball comfortably (hence, the forced throws and turnovers.) So once again, what adjustments are you seeing be made from half to half out of Arians? He's not calling anything differently, he's just the beneficiary of talented offensive players bailing him out and making him look better than he really is.

Look at the plays called, not the outcome of the plays. That will tell you what you need to know about a coordinator. Arians isn't changing his strategy at all. Luck and Wayne just have a knack for making something happen when a play is broken, and make Arians chicken s*** look like chicken salad

Where do I start? He's predictable (run plays only come out of heavy formations, pass plays only come out of spread formations), obsessed with the vertical pass, doesn't alter strategy when scheme isn't working, and his offense has no continuity (runs for decent yardage on 2nd down. 3rd down, opts to pass up opportunity for play action and calls an empty backfield)

He's a man without a plan, in my opinion. He calls plays based on his gut. No strategy or forethought, whatsoever

Well, I think his "gut" has done pretty good this year. Hey also, how do you like my gut ? :puke: :puke:

I heard the owner might have had something to do with it. Strange move at this point in the season. Here's the thing with the Raven's D if they score 28 points in a game I don't really blame the offense for them losing. That's like blaming a team built around offense's defense for a lose if they only give up 17 points.

I don't understand why this hasn't been moved to nfl general. It's not colts related. All of the Peyton manning threads were moved over without hesitation, once he was a bronco... Soooo.... What's the deal! Man!

In the future, would you please use the report link when you see something that needs to be moved. That would be helpful.

Everybody here should help keep the boards organized.

Thanks so much!

Report is for anything that needs mod action. We try to be everywhere but it's not possible.

We appreciate it when people pitch in and help keep things organized.

Now............is there was some magical way to get people to title their posts so that people know what they are..........AND not create duplicate threads

That would be awesome!

That is true and sometimes forum members like me may say something that seems critical but its not meant to be, we all know & appreciate the dedicated hard work moderators do , give yourself a million likes

Peyton Manning says Caldwell took his game to another level while he was there since 2002.

“He’s very detail-oriented. He and I are very similar that way — very routine-oriented,” Manning said. “I miss being in his presence every day, because that was really a fun time that he and I had together.”

“I felt like he really took my game to another level. He’s also a tremendous mentor and friend to me,” Manning said. “I can speak to him as a person and what kind of a coach he was to me.”

    • I'm actually happy about it. I normally can't watch games live because I have to be at work at 1pm on Sundays. I will be able to watch almost all of it
    • A great post Restored! Thank you for your insightful perspective. 
    • Intro: What is it like to play in London? The Colts have a couple of players who have experienced playing overseas. View the full article
    • 14.30 for me too, I hope I don't sleep in, lol.   It's probably better it's on early in the morning for ye guys though. The 4.25pm kickoffs like against the Broncos and Chargers last 2 weeks are at 9.25pm across the ocean here, which means were up until about 1am on a work night. Say like last year against the Patriots in the night time kickoff, I stayed up from 1.30am to about 4.30-5.00 (ish), and then we saw that fake punt fail, I was not in a good mood Monday morning.     Honestly though, I've been a Colts fan for about 12 years. This is the first time I am getting an opportunity to see my team, so obviously hugely, hugely excited about Sunday!   Just want to wish everybody flying over a safe and happy trip. (Granted the latter may depend on the result, lol)
    • Thank you for your post OPC, particularly what I highlighted in red. You're right though. Luck's early success in the league getting 1 step further every yr. minus DeFlate Gate has created an aura of playoff expectations that may not be easily achieved every season. Also, I like what you said about the fact that we all have habits good or bad that we will never change. The same is true of QBs. Some QBs are risk takers & with risks come both touchdowns & turnovers.    I always cut Chewy a ton of slack because I know our running game isn't great & he always owns his picks saying "my fault". That's why I love the guy because he always takes responsibility on bad decision making himself even if the turnover isn't really his fault.    I agree with you. Luck is just starting his NFL career & we as fans have to let the game come to him on his own timetable not what we or the media think his awareness level in yr 5. Like you say, Andrew has more football ahead of him than behind him. Well said.

    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
