Did anybody see this article on the CBS Sports website? Clark Judge is making a case for BA to get a head coaching chance somewhere.

Arians should be on somebody's short list of coaching candidates

Hope not. I'm hoping that we are saved from BA leaving because I don't think he will be a candidate for a top tier team and I don't think BA will leave for a KC or Arizona where there is no QB. BA has said that he still loved coming to work in Manning's rookie year even though the Colts were losing and taking a pasting because Peyton got better every week, he was special and you could see that it was only a matter of time. I'm hoping that with his past experiences with Peyton and Ben that BA is spoiled and doesn't want to be in a situation where he has no QB because as he has said you can't win in the NFL without a QB.

I don't doubt he'll get feelers but I hope he does not leave. I want Luck to have one OC for his entire career. They can grow together. BA is a very good OC. Give him a top shelf QB and they should do big things together.


* I used to spend a significant amount of time here. But between Nadine's harasment and genral stalkerlike behavior, I decided to roll over to Stampede. Her equally clueless counterpart over there, Brad Wells has departed and so now it will be my Colts home. What a shame. ;)

While I agree BA certainly shows he could be a head coach, it would be great to see him spend at least on more year on the Colts sidelines.

I remember hearing him on 1070 the fan saying at this point in his career he really wasn't interested in being a HC somewhere. He's happy being an OC. Also P.Wilson said he thinks colts will add a title to his job description this offseason and give him more money, so I don't see him going anywhere.

I'm sure... problem is a good amount of coaches are going to get the boot this offseason so if Arians gets a shot with lets say The Titans, he'd jump on it because Locker is a young QB that can be pretty awesome if developed appropriately.

We need a guy like Bruce Arians presence on our team for next year too. With the health of Pagano still recovering. Even if Pagano does make it back for the last game. He would still be in the recovery process and probably wouldnt be ready to take on the head coaching full duties so we would still need Arians presence around for this team. We should ease Pagano back to his full time duties, don't just throw it all on him as soon as he gets back. Even next year we still need Arians presence on the team

This is funny.

I just made a $25 bet with a friend that Arians isn't in Indy next year because he will be a HC on another team.

I see an easy 7-8 HC vacancies avail. I'm willing to bet(clearly) he lands in one of them.

I like to argue.

The only thing that worries me about the possibility of Arians leaving, is that Luck would have to learn another new system again. Some of the stuff Arians does drives me crazy, but a young QB needs consistency from the OC spot and 2 different systems in 2 yrs. is not a good way to start.

Although I don't agree with his scheme I can't fault the man at all for what he's done for us this season so i do hope he stays.

With a functioning O line this could be a very dangerous team.

Given the uncertainty of the situation, with Chuck's health moving forward, I'm guessing Irsay will do what Dallas did with Garrett and pay him like a head coach to stick around. He'll be made assistant head coach and will be treated as somewhat of a co-head coach, as he should be. At this point, he has more head coaching experience than Chuck does.

He should this team is 8-2 under him. We can point out all his flaws all we want but he's getting the job done and surpassing just about everyone's wildest expectations in the process!

it sounds like chucks health is becoming more of a sure thing. Reggie said after the game that the target is still to have him back on the sidelines for the Texans game and Arains keeps saying the goal is for him to coach the playoff game. He could clearly have a relaspe but he sounds like he is in just about as good of shape as you could hope for given the situation.

He and Jim Schwartz were classmates in Red Flag school... :hat:
“There’s no question he’s (Luck) a complete football player and one of the top quarterbacks in this league already. He has a great career in front of him but I think he’s already established himself as a very poised and talented player that can do a lot of things to beat you and he manages his team well and plays good situational football.” -New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick
