Clark Judge is Giving Bruce Ariens Some Real Praise

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

Selfishly, I hope it doesn't happen...

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.

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.

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.

You've met Alex Smith then I take it :P

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.

    • You wrote almost the opposite what I did Lol. But imma check out Anderson and tell you what I think. 
    • Yeah. This a tough one. I agree with what u both said. Except the setting the edge part.   My definition on Settinf the edge is actually producing from the edge...something Tim Williams is great at and Charles Harris is okay at.    Tim has his head above the o lineman, and can blow up a sweep, by slipping, tossing, or simply overpowering him.    Harris is usually running too fast to blow up those surprise 2nd long and 3rd down runs to the outside. But he is sufficient on known passing downs.    Barnett on the other hand, can't push his man towards the runner, he can't disengage with his hands, he want use all the lateral movement he likes to slip and dip and shut down a lane.   He constantly keeps getting cleanly squared off by the taclkle on sweeps and slants.    And I slightly disagree with his field awareness. He tracks the qb better than the RBs
    • Reminds me of this: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/8515002.stm   If it was just a case of stealing the cart/buggy/milk float and going for a little joy ride I'd be more willing to overlook it. However when you throw assault and resisting arrest into the bag the incident does become a little darker.
    • Yeah I agree we need to focus our resources on Defense and I'll add RB too. But we can use a Big Physical WR opposite of TY, and Moncreif's rookie contract is expiring and we don't know what we have with Dorsett.
    • Assuming this is true.  It never ceases to amaze me that people are willing to risk their high paying jobs for stupidity.  He has a chance at making generational wealth and instead decides to get drunk, hit a guy giving you a ride in the head and steal his golf cart, smh. He is in the wrong entertainment business if he wants to do that.  He should become an actor, Hollywood doesn't seem to mind that type of behavior as much as pro sport leagues do.
