I dearly hope Chud is around at least for a couple of years in full and provides some stability. I don't want Luck going through a Russian Roulette of OCs early on in his career like Alex Smith. Having a guy like Tom Moore or Bruce Arians as OC or LeBeau as DC provided stability for their sides of the ball in an unrealistic way because they did not kick the tires on being a HC for the longest time. Even now, Arians is the only one in the bunch that did it.
I can see Philbin sticking around but Chud, I hope he does too.
Yeah, I think every INDY fan on here drew a parallel between the chemistry between Manning & Saturday attributing to our team success for over a decade so hopefully the bond between Kelly & Luck will last just as long or longer as we fight for a ring in this new era.
I don't watch college Football near as much as some in here but still watch it and study players leading up to the Draft. Once Leonard Floyd got Drafted I wanted Kelly. I may have even taken Kelly over Floyd had both been there because of Luck's injuries last season.
Yeah, outside LT, pretty much every position on the OL was probably seen as upgradeable before the draft, I would think so . I did however feel that we shuffled Johnnys and Joes constantly with pretty much the same results, and did have to take a second look at coaching; very glad they did.
This year, we have invested more than ever in personnel for all spots, IMO, along the OL. Now, we will find out if the coaching can make it work.
