Anyone think we can get him in??

 

 

We already hired an O-line coach.

 

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.

I had not heard that he was leaving

 

 

 

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.

    • I agree, Pagano says a lot of vanilla statements -- but in this case he is saying "well documented", which is true -- our running D, with Art in the lineup was allowing significantly less YPC.  This is when he is actually on the field, not sitting on the bench.  Here are the stats  -- http://espn.go.com/blog/indianapolis-colts/post/_/id/13395/the-statistics-show-that-the-colts-need-art-jones-on-the-field-to-stop-the-run :   WITHOUT JONES ON THE FIELD 257 rushes for 1,201 yards (4.67 yards per rush) 3.12 yards before contact per rush 12 rushing TDs (4.7 percent of rushes) First downs allowed on 26 percent of rushes WITH JONES ON THE FIELD 165 rushes for 615 yards (3.73 yards per rush) 2.15 yards before contact per rush 2 rushing TDs (1.2 percent of rushes) First downs allowed on 22 percent of rushes   ------------------------------------------------------------------ These numbers are pretty staggering, at least in my opinion (all of them -- the contact before rush sticks out the most to me, but the YPC, TD, and First Downs are all significant, too).   All that said, Jones has not been sidelined more than he's been on the field.  This PED suspension doesn't help the team and as you've said earlier, we won't miss him that much.  I don't agree with you that we won't miss him due to him not being a significant contributor when he is on the field (that he has been) -- but, he hasn't been healthy enough to be on the field long enough to really warrant missing him.... violating the league substance abuse policy doesn't help this team and doesn't help Jones.  If I'm the coach/GM, Jones is on a very short leash (or perhaps already dismissed) for this.
    • And so another rumor is laid to rest. Good riddance.
    • Do it for Pagel          
    • When is the draft going to be?
    • It was similar to what Jones ran at Baltimore but not the same.  That is why I was I didn't think his poor play was earth shattering.   Yup, I ran the numbers of the games he played and the games he didn't play.  In the games he played the Colts allowed a lower YPC average than the games he didn't play.  The odd thing as I was running the numbers though, is with Jone in the game the opposing team used the running game a lot more.  With Jones teams ran the ball an average of 28.667 times per game, without Jones they ran the ball 20.33 times per game.  Without Jones the COlts D gave a lot more long running plays, with Jones, they gave up a lot more first downs via the ground.    So, I will admit I was wrong about the higher YPC with Jones.  But I still would not quanitify what Jones did as a significant contribution to the run defense, mainly because teams were able to grind out the running game and keep the chains moving and keep the Colts O off the field.   Lastly, quoting Pagano doesn't really mean a lot.
