We already hired an O-line coach.

Did we?

Excuse my ignorance.

Anyone think we can get him in??

He'll be involved at some level at some time.  He may want to take a year off just to enjoy it.

 

I wouldn't be surprised to see him as an OL coach / assistant coach, but also wouldn't be surprised to see him somewhere in the FO.  He apparently had a standing FO offer from the club when he signed with GB.

I'd agree with the poster who says take a year to enjoy the family, and then I'd see in the FO....    He doesn't strike me as an assistant coach going back to the grinding life that a coach lives...

 

I think he'd be a VP of some type in the FO....   He's a big picture, big idea type of guy....  

 

Hope he's back with Indy soon.    People as good as Jeff Saturday are hard to come by in all walks of life....

We promoted the assistant but I could see them maybe bringing Jeff in as the new assistant or giving him a front office job if he wants one.

Would like to see Jeff Saturday back here involved in whatever area he wished to contribute.

And have him do a teaching seminar in Professionalism & GRIT.

Is Bill Brooks still working in the front office? He and Jeff Herrod were my favorite players pre 1998. I would have liked to see what Bill could have done with Peyton.

If I remember correctly, Irsay offered Saturday a FO position with the team.  I'm sure that offer will stand if Saturday decides to take it

He will be in the FO soon

Indeed, you are correct.

He and Irsay agreed to that a year or more ago.

LOL - hope you're joking. After going 11-5 last year, this team does not need that lecture.

Any chance he joins Bob in the radio booth? I would love that.

I had that thought since it was announced Wolford was leaving to purse coaching.  I hadn't heard who was going to replace him.

I hope something drastic happens this offseason as far as the o-line. I was watching an interview with luck at the pro bowl and he said he had "a great offensive line". My father and i looked at each other and laughed. Pretty hard...

The o-line does.

That was never the O-line's problem.  Injuries and skills were their problems.  They did the best they could given those constraints.  Lectures wouldn't have helped.

I wouldn’t want to see him as OLC. Not yet. Assistant first. Just because you were a great player doesn’t mean that you would be a great coach. Not saying that he can’t be. Just want him to test the waters before being thrown in the deep end.

Saturday or Ken Dilger would be great replacements

If Saturday wants to be apart of this organization again, I'm with it. But if he wants to become more of a family man, I respect that. Either way I'm happy for him.

If you watch the America's Game version of the 2006 Colts, Jeff is one of the people telling the story.  After Indy won the Super Bowl, Jeff's kids run up to him and he and his son have a conversation to the effect of:

 

Kid: "Daddy, you won the game?"

Jeff: "Yeah!"
Kid: "So...does this mean we can go home and play video games?"

 

Or something similar to that.  Jeff's thought was "even after the biggest game/win of my career, the kid's perspective is the one that always brings you home".  I wouldn't be surprised if he took some time off to be with his family.

 

Also, let's not forget that Jeff is at the NFL TV Boot Camp almost every year.  He has a strong interest in going into media, so that might be a possibility for him

Your original words were "teaching seminar in Professionalism & GRIT" (which I had simplified to lecture). What Ray did for the Ravens was not a "teaching seminar" - it was just old-fashioned informal peer motivation like Reggie did during one of our half-times.

This will be my last reply in this thread, just because I don't want this to turn into a p------ match! Cheers! :)

I think an FO job would be better, but assistant O-line coach could be very good too.

With all his work in getting the last CBA done I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up with an important role in the NFLPA (even though we have 8 more years of labor peace :applause: ), and if not that then it will be a FO position, just don't see coaching for him.

    • Looking WAY Ahead: The 2017 NFL RB Draft Class....
      So, here'a Valentine's day gift for all my Colts' NFL draft fans.....   By now, some of you (perhaps even most of you?) have heard that the 2017 class of running backs is shaping up to be an all-time great class should everyone who can come out declare.     (And some of these guys could go back to school and come out in 2018, but I suspect it's not likely)   10 really great looking backs.  (In no particular order, this is NOT a ranking)      Starting with.....      1.   Leonard Fournette        LSU 2.   Nick Chubb                   Georgia 3.   Sony Michel                  Georgia 4.   Dalvin Cook                  Florida St. 5.   James Connor              Pitts 6.   Royce Freeman           Oregon 7.   Corey Clement             Wiscon 8.   Samajie Perine            Okla 9.   Kevin Taylor                 Florida 10.  Christian McCaffrey    Stanford   Pretty incredible list.       And who knows how many others might surface between now and the next 14 months or so?   Oh,  and a footnote.....   Over on my Stanford site, one fan who has visits Pro Football Focus found this amazing factoid about McCaffrey.....     how great was his 2015 season?        This great..........   (Cutting and Pasting from PFF)   Christian McCaffrey (RB, Stanford) had the best college season of any running back.   Ever. Do you remember Melvin Gordon at Wisconsin last year? He was unstoppable. In Week 14 of 2014 against Nebraska, he ran for what was at the time an NCAA record 408 yards en route to 2,587 yards on the year. He had the most yards of any running back in college football history other than the great Barry Sanders in 1988. Gordon led all running backs with a season grade of +31.7.
        In 2015, Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey made Gordon look like he was running in snow pants.  By virtually every metric, McCaffrey had one of the most historic seasons we’ve ever seen. He shattered Barry Sanders’ all-purpose yards record by 614 yards (3,864). In the Rose Bowl, he was the first player in the bowl’s history to have 100 yards rushing and 100 yards receiving.  In the end, he graded out to +51 — almost 20 points higher than Gordon’s terrific 2014 season.  In addition, he received a grade of +16.5 as a kick and punt returner – good for second in the nation.  He runs, he catches and he returns kicks at an elite level.  
    • Broncos just showed why Colts have to draft all Defense in draft...
      I know we expected Eddie Goldman to go in the first round last year, and for Malcolm Brown to go maybe top 15, but neither thing happened so I guess it's not too far fetched to possibly have Ashawn on the board at 18.  I'd pick the guy for sure.

      Charitable....
    • Broncos just showed why Colts have to draft all Defense in draft...
      I wonder how much chance we have of picking up Ashawn Robinson?  I think he's a real good player. I'd love to have a rotation of Anderson, Robinson, Langford, Jones, Parry, Winn.
