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.

    •   You're partially correct. Some of what I am saying (and have said) does walk the line of politics. However, while it might be easy to lump everything together; it does not all fit in the same box.    A lot of what I am talking about is a deep emotional connection to a football team.   I am trying very hard to walk the line about what is acceptable to discuss on this forum, and the waters can get very muddy. I do believe my statements holds true. Ignoring a lot of things happening lately won't fix anything. A person has to take action, within the confinements of the rules, and also within the parameters of moral values.   I believe the same can be said for political reasons or for undesired results of the product on the field. In my mind, the product on the field is not a reason for scaling back emotional investment. However, the politics obviously hit a different nerve for some of us. Not everyone will agree on these issues. It is also very tough to balance them once we understand a persons position.   Nevertheless, actions through participation or lack of participation speak very loud. it is a bottom line business, and it takes both active fans and talented players for the marriage to work. 
    •   Nem te vagy az egyetlen, aki ezt tapasztalja
    • Or maybe, just maybe he saw an opportunity to get into the top 10 for next years draft, AND get a new head coach, AND then have a healthy Andrew Luck. I will reserve my judgement on Chris after next year's off season. That will be the most crucial off-season of his career. 
    •     Sorry, I reread your OP, and I understand what you're saying.  My bad.   Ok, so you are saying that CB could have chosen a more favorable GM position with a different team last year.   I don't know.  At this point, I'm looking at the Colts situation compared to the other teams CB could have chosen... probably top-3 pick in every round of the draft, the most cap-space in the league, and oh yeah what could be the best QB in the league when healthy...   Could anyone starting out as a GM really ask for a better scenario?
