I heard that too. Went to Irsay's tweets and saw this:

Funny.

How are we going to run his defense without Lewis, Reed, Suggs, etc.?

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.

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

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.

    • FA will definitely be interesting especially if we don't bring back Thad. Will almost have to do something to fill his spot.
    • I think he will be a lot better than Joe Young. JMO.
    • Not sure if anyone will be  interested, but I am super excited. We are combining my 50th and my wife's 50th next year and having the trip of a lifetime by coming over to America in October and will be taking in the Jets game in New York, then coming down to Indianapolis for the Bills game at home. We cannot wait, and look forward to taking in the atmosphere of a home game.  Hopefully we will be on a winning run when we come over.  
    • Was lunch at St Elmo's Steakhouse?  That could've made a world of difference lol.     Yeah, definitely sounds lame and lack of effort.  
    • It also is implied that Boston wanted both the red carpet treatment AND a big contract offer in order to feel valued.   He never said anything about the money offered to him by the Colts (if any offer was made at all).   But he did criticize our visit and commended Arizona rolling out the red carpet for him. But then he said he was disrespected by the Cardinals likely offering him something close to the veteran minimum   The problem here is that if he and Reid and Vaccaro really thought they would be $7-$9M a year players as he said to Ed McCafferey, then they were completely duped by their agents or anyone that let them think that.   That would make them top-12 safeties by annual average. Honey Badger got $7M.   Otherwise all the guys that signed singed for less. Burnett signed for under $5M a year and he is a more well known guy than Boston generally speaking.   Based on what most of these guys signed for, there is no way Boston and Vaccaro and Reid and others were going to get even $4M a year. The guys that signed early in free agency, which is when the most dollars are spent to sign guys quickly, went for $4-$5.5M   The best these guys can hope for are contracts in the range of Mike Adams or HaHa Clinton-Dix or even Reggie Nelson.   That is $2-$2.5M a year. If Boston thought he was gonna cash in at $7-$9M then he is probably * that he is getting offered around 1/3 of what he thought he'd make. That is because he got some bad intel if he really thought he would make that.   I think Boston is a good player, but I doubt the Colts would go out and pay him more than they are paying
      Hooker. And since Hooker is making around $3.1M annually, he couldn't have expected to get crazy bank from us.   I just think if these guys want to play they are going to have to play for whatever their market is. You don't want to make $1-$3M because that is a slap in the face, then you sit the year and make nothing. Harsh reality but that is what these guys are faced with.
