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.

    • Crossing routes, bunch formations, anything to allow our speedy WRs to get off the line of scrimmage and operate in space = I am a big, big fan.   Really liked what I saw from the offense in the Ravens game.  And if you, as a defensive coordinator, want to scheme to take away the crossing routes, be prepared for Dorsett, Hilton, and Moncrief to stretch the field vertically.
    • They are getting what they deserve for making such a dumb decision.
    • As a Colts fan, I hope Bosa reenters the draft next year and it blows up in both their faces, they deserve it for not compromising. Basically from what I know, Bosa wants all his guaranteed money up front instead of part of it from a year from now. The Chargers have upped their offer from 60% to 85%, and when he said no, they took it away.    I have never seen Bosa speak, but by the way he looks and the way the negotiating has happened, he seems to have a mental block. I have a cousin who has this and he takes a while to understand things. It seems to me Bosa is being highly manipulated by both his Parents and his Agent to get a deal that's not very far off his original terms and holdout and possibly miss a year and lose money.   I feel bad for him, but he does know what he's doing, and he should be able to figure out that the odds of getting drafted no3 overall or higher next year is slim to none, especially because he can't reenter college and would just be sitting at home for a year having to stay in shape, waiting for next year. The only other reason he might not want to sign is that he doesn't want to play for the Chargers. He may want to play for a contender, but that's purely a guess.
    • I somehow always leave off that long snapper! lol
    • Sorry, gavin,  you missed one.....   the long snapper.    So, take the 6th WR and turn him into the LS.   Remember.....   3 for special teams...    K/P/LS   That leaves 50 players....     but it's almost never divided up 25/25....   Then it's typically 23 or 24 for offense.....     and 46 or 47 for defense for a total of 50.   It's an easy rule of thumb......
