Chargers to name Tom Telesco GM

7 posts in this topic

Good luck to Tom Telesco, he really paid his dues and earned his stripes, IMO!!! I wish him good luck!!!

 

Both A.J.Smith and Tom Telesco are the good products of the Bill Polian tree with regards to talent evaluation, if there is one!!! :)

 

We will find out if Telesco has the temper of either of them when he is DA BOSS!!! I am sure he learnt as much from Polian's mistakes as he did with the successes.

I wish him luck, but tired of chargers having the upper hand against us.

Just listened to the interview with him, I was hoping that we would go out of the organization.  Whatever is systemically wrong needs to have fresh eyes and a willingness to go in a new direction. 

 

I haven't been around much - work has kept me nailed to the wall with deadlines, plus a crappy season definitely puts the damper on things! 

 

A belated CONGRATULATIONS to my Colt's friends, you have had an amazing turn around and no team deserves it more.

 

What do you think of Arians as a potential HC?  Honest opinions sought :thmup:

Congrats on getting Tom Telesco.

You will get a variety of opinions.  Mine is he handled the HC job under short notice pressure with aplomb.  He will bring an offensive scheme along the lines of Turner, but different than the twists Norv put on the vertical attack scheme. What I have determined is BA adapts usually his game plan well at halftime, and can even perform dual HC/OC duties with effectiveness.

 

I don't think having tall, high jumping receivers will be as necessary with BA's scheme. Rivers is a vet, and knows the speed of the game and has a good internal clock, so he should thrive in BA's scheme and calls.  Plus he is one tough dude, even if he should take a knock or to delivering the huge play.  Ad BA has shown to adapt the scheme and calls to the ability of the O in time, without neutering the important parts with bite.  If you have a good rushing O line and good RB's, Arians will take advantage of the power running game, especially if it brings up the defenders and opens up the deeper 'chunk' plays.

 

Many Colts fans, a good portion of those West Coast Offense fans, are not fond of his schemes and play calling.  Lucks just > 54% completion rate, 41+ sacks and 18 interceptions have been blamed directly on BA.  And they want him out, now. I do agree the scheme elevates those less than stellar numbers over a small ball passing WCO, but some of those are on the rookie QB too.  Rivers will likely feel comfortable in the system, IMHO.  And his #'s wont drop off much if at all. They might even improve...  I am not saying that sarcastically either.

 

I hope B.A. stays on as OC for the Colts, but wish him well wherever he lands, even Sandy-Eggo. :)

Thanks for the perspective, I knew I'd get it straight from this board :-) 

 

I have to say I really don't have any idea who I want as HC, there are some good options, but I would probably prefer not having a "retread."  But then it's a decision way above my pay grade and knowledge. 

 

I wasn't a Norve hater.  In fact, I don't really think our losses were as much on Norv as on AJ.  Letting proven players get away, playing ego trip negotiating games, and always trying for the spectacular and surprising draft pick instead of just making consistent, good solid picks that begin to add up and just a FEW of the reasons I'm glad he's gone.   Having a $90+ million quarterback and no one worthy of protecting him... doesn't make much sense.

    • Negative, no. Critical, yes. I never said Pagano was a bad coach. But, Pagano has had 5 years to develop better strategies (granted in concert with the other coaches and players Grigson and the FO provided). I suppose some would try to put all the failures on Grigson, but in my experience with teambuilding, that (the failure of one person) is almost never the case. In fact, I would speculate that, for whatever reason, the lack of a coherent strategic vision for the team resulted in players "trying too hard", getting hurt, and ultimately coming up short of their potential. Part of that under-performance is the lack of development of the mental aspects of the game. Slow starts, mis-matched playcalling, poor clock management are indicators of strategic mental lapses.
    • I think you hit the nail right on the head with your New York and Los Vegas comment. There are a few other artist who fall into that category also. I'm not going to venture to make a list of those artist. Music is so compelling to each individual and effects each one of us differently. Like you said Frank was a little ahead of my time but I can't judge him in the fact if he was good or bad. His career started with the big band era and then ventured into acting where he did have success. Like him or not he was huge in his style.
    • I think we could see Spence at M and Jackson at W to start the season. If someone doesn't step up at M. We could easily run that pair out week 1. We could do a lot worse.   The biggest change we need to make at ILB is speed. That pair gives us that. Rhodes is a guy who could surprise. This will be a position group I'll be keeping a close eye on

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
