PFT claiming sources say it's Pagano. How many players will we have to draft to run a 3-4, even the hybrid they do?

Saw it on twitter also. If it's true that's good news!

Will wait until it's official though, you never know with Irsay! :)

Funny.

If true, I like the hire, but you are right, there is some serious adjusting to do with personnel if the Colts intend to run their D anything like the Ravens.

Dunno, but NFLN now reports that some Ravens coaches won't be retained.
So, there may be other's available off that staff to fill other positions.

A man hears what he wants to hear, and disregards the rest.

I'm pretty excited about this. Wonder if this means a switch to the 3-4 defense.

People, try to remember, Grigson/Pagano and co. said they were going to BUILD the monster...not buy it!

Even more evidence they are in rebuild mode instead of reload mode.

I think you should get tickets anyways it's just a not a game there without the Tuba. Also, if you do go I am okay with renting you out to the Giants for the game we'll just have to train them on the first down thing. :)

I picked Pagano as well. I told Irsay that I'm already packing my suitcase. I'll be sure to wear as much of my Colts garb as I can get on to the game.

Really was hoping for someone with HC experience... he has 0 experience as a HC. Our biggest complaint against Caldwell is that he couldn't manage a game as a HC. Thought they would have gone with someone who had proven HC experience to build a team. Once again we would be in no man's land with our HC.

Much success-- and looking forward to more winning seasons and SB runs!

1 year in an already successful defensive scheme, is that going to be enough to make a successful coach? Young and raw so how many mistakes can we expect and will tolerate before the board starts calling for his head? I am not overly thrilled about a one year wonder but perhaps his resume is deeper than this, IDK.

What's gonna happen with Mathis and Freeney now? We are gonna be defensive minded now so more $$$$ will be needed for defense? Peyton's $28M bonus doesn't seem to fit anymore.

Guys just becuase he ran a 3/4 in Balitomore doesn't mean that is what we are going to run. He coached alot of places & some were 4/3 defenses. If we did convert to a 3/4 I could easily see Mathis being retianed as A rush LB & Freeney being a rush down guy or released or traded. His cap # next year is 14 Millon I believe? Mathus could easily be Suggs, Bethea/ Reed & well we will work on the Lewis charcter!

I really like the hire, I was hoping for Zimmer or Pagano (i.e. a defensive minded guy). While I am a little concerned with no head coaching experience, that sure didn't stop Mike McCarthy or Mike Tomlin. Welcome to Indy!

You got it. I see them in rebuild mode now. I think they want to get young again with talent on both sides of the ball.

    How many of you are CD collectors. I have at least in between 60-80 CD's. As most people are going to I Pods and other tech stuff. Just wondering.

    I was listening to 101.5 WIBA FM yesterday driving home & the DJ on duty was talking about buying a ranch home with a 2nd story tower on it with his wife. He said he goes up in 1 room in there & blares Dio music which according to him "can lure & summon dragons to his residence." LOL!
