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.

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.

    • Possibly. But there is more ways to make it work. Like say swapping a 4th for their 5th too or some other combo if we get their 101 then we get say that 5th or something. That said I want that 82nd and not impressed with the 101st..even if it meant swapping our late 4th for their 5th. That 82nd to me is like the tipping point in the draft. Kinda where that level of talent sees a big drop or players start having limitations or big question marks. Not saying there won't be diamonds in the rough later but percentages aren't on our side.
    •   I hate to be the killjoy and I certainly have NO inside information....   But my hunch,  my instincts,  say that Elway will not trade the 82nd pick that's worth 180 points even thought it's a natural fit.     I'm on record as saying it's a buyers market, not a seller's market,  so I think we're going to have to settle for Denver's 2nd of their two 3rd round picks.     It's pick 101 and it's with 96 points,  less than half of what we'd want.   And for that reason,   I think the haggling is over what else we will demand Denver give us to make up for some of that huge difference.      I don't think i'd want to do a deal just for that 2nd three and take less than 50 cents on the dollar.      I'd tell Elway,   no 2nd pick,  no deal.     And while I don't think Elway will give up a 4,  I think he might be willing to give up a 5 to go with it.      Clearly he'd be more willing to give up a 6,  the question is,  would that be enough for Ballard.      My instincts say no,  but what the Hell do I know,   I'm guessing here....   But my instincts say we'd get the 2nd of the Broncos three's and another pick....     That might get the job done...   I know this viewpoint will be very, very unpopular,  but I think this is a weird draft and that the majority of deals will be discounted.  
    • I see the Patriots getting this guy in the middle round. They love Florida players and seem to always grab guys that tumble but have special talent and turn them into another cog in that machine.
    • That's a reach if I've ever saw one. Honestly he is like the 5th best OL at best and it's likely we would be able to draft the best if we wanted one drafting where we are. Sometimes these guys just force stupid picks on small market teams so they can have some bigger names fall to their big market teams like the Cowboys and Steelers etc because they know they will make more readers happy to see a guy like say Conley fall to the Cowboys or a Reddick fall to the Steelers or say a Charles Harris fall to Atlanta. So what if he screws over the Colts or say the Titans or Cincinnati if it means pushing a clear better talent and fit down the draft board to make a dream scenario for the Jets, Eagles, or Cowboys. That's how I tell the good analysts from the make believe ones as I look for clear outliers.
