Pagano - 11th Best Coach in the NFL

I guess the problem I have is our best unit was terrible early on most games (the offense), and our defense did a decent job of keeping us in it. Maybe Pagano was doing his job as a defensive coach in that regard, but we should of been more like the Packers or Saints, not the way we were. It is possible Luck has truly regressed, and I like to think right now that it is due to injury (he was playing like 2013-2014 RGIII last year in the way he was piling up his stats in the 2nd half), but that's remained to be seen. This year I'd just like to beat the Steelers or Patriots just once and am very frustrated right now. Without any control, it absolutely drives me nuts, as there is nothing I can do about it.

 

I fully agree about the offensive slowness, but with pagano still being a relatively young HC and being a defensive guy, I put that on the OC more and not him.  Now, yes, as the HC he should step in and tell Chud "hey we need to do more of this" or "less of that" etc but as far as specific offensive gameplanning and playcalling, I put that on Chud.  Especially after reports were (after the Grigson/Pagano "come to jesus" meeting) that Chuck was going to let Chud run the offense and he was going to spend more time on defense.

 

So, my biggest complaint with Chuck so far is with his selection of OC.  I think that the type of team he seems to want to build would be much better off with a West coast offense rather than a Coryell offense.  Now last year was their first year officially fully immersed in Chud's offense so I'm trying to remain hopeful that they'll utilize a similar gameplan in the future as they did against the vikings last year.  More short passes, don't give up on the run...bootlegs etc.

Can't argue with this. Right now, I'll be watching the draft and hoping for the best. I can say Free Agency went very well, and now Ballard has to come through again in a big way. No draft since 2012 has been more important than this one. After that, it's game time.

Talk about a broken record...... sheesh that is you and your rah rah "everything in the organization is perfect" mentality 

Now you are exaggerating because I have a different opinion.

It is quite obvious there is nothing Pagano could do that would make you like or respect what he has done.

We have a different opinion and point of view so there is nothing more to say to each other in regards to Pagano.

Now you throw your 2 cents at me when it is worth zero to me when I wasn't even talking to you. Why? Is that your need to keep an argument going? 

If all you can do is continue to rag on Pagano leave me out of your personal attacks.

Another big problem with our fan base is they fear change. They are so scared to change coaches because "we could always get worse" so unless it's a Superbowl winning head coach they would rather keep chuck and his stupid actions. 

That is a very good point. They don't even want to change and update uniforms.

You know what's concerning? The Vikings gameplan wasn't that much different than our typical gameplan, especially the route combinations. They did a better job protecting and giving help to the young OL, but the pass plays were still long developing, and a lot of the routes ran right into the strengths of the coverage. The Vikings did a horrible job in coverage, also, just like the Jets a couple weeks before. The offense had several miscues early in that game, and left a good 10 points on the board in the first half. They got bailed out by a stupid Vikings penalty that kept one drive going.

 

It's easy to look at the result and say 'hey, that's the gameplan we need to use!' I thought that at first. But going back to rewatch that game, I saw a lot of stuff that I didn't like, schematically.

yuck.  that is concerning.  admittedly I didn't go back and rewatch any of the games last year like I normally do so I didn't catch that.  I'd very much prefer a WC OC for this team.

way to paint with broad strokes.  BTW, I'm one who has been defending Pagano and I couldn't be more on the "change the uniforms" train than I already am so....nice try.

Instead of debating what you think all you can do is attack someone on a personal level because they don't agree with you. You are like a broken record with your never ending line of nonsense.

Who did I attack?

Hopefully Chuck goes 11-5 again and we make a deep Playoff run so he can prove the haters wrong.

We're gonna go 8-8 again and he will be fired at the end of the season.

I've said this before.  Chuck isn't a bad coach - but he isn't a great coach.  In my opinion of course. He seems to struggle with in game adjustments and in game decisions.  Can he improve this? Absolutely!  These are areas where a coach can grow and also surrounding yourself with people that excel at this.

Well said. We accept that players (Luck, Moncrief, Geathers,etc) can learn and grow and become better. So why not coaches who openly admit they're got to do a better job? Do you know how many times I've heard Andy Reid or Bill Belicheck say those words? Belicheck had ONE winning season in his first six years. Let's see what happens this year. Truth is, none of us really knows enough about Pagano to assess his coaching potential, let alone his intelligence. Give the guy a break.

Hes not the 11th best coach, IMO. Hes somewhere between 16-20, which probably isn't good enough, but I don't make those decisions.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say Chuck isn't exactly Einstein.  I know some may criticize that view, but hey, you can't eat me.

Remember,  this is just one guy's opinion.

 

The list where he was 20th might not have been by the same guy,  or even the same website.

 

So comparing lists is a waste of your time....

Sorry I forget that sometimes my dry sarcasm doesn't translate to type on these type of settings (probably if I emoticon'd it or lolz'd it I might not have lead anyone down the wrong path)....I will work on my delivery.......but anyway.....that was the point I was making, that these types of threads are totally opinion based, and that actual results may vary. Interesting read, none the less.....Again I apologize for any confusion......was just lol'z-ing in sentence form. As you were :)

Hey,  no need to apologize here,  but appreciate you doing so!

 

And yes,  sarcasm often falls flat without an emoji (or two!)     I've made that same mistake a number of times myself!

According to CB, he is constantly talking to Pagano in order to get him the kind of players he wants for scheme fit.  Surprise surprise he  CB went hog wild on linebackers in free agency which is what most fans have been wondering...   Where are the linebackers for a 3-4 defense?  Excluding a really old Mathis,   Just think...Walden has arguably been Chucks best overall lb. during the Pagano era and he was almost the first to be let go by Ballard.  The coaches above Pagano like BB and Arians and Reid are stacked on defense year in and year out.  Hopefully Chuck gets a good defense and then he can be judged a bit more fairly.

To be fair, some of those coaches above him (Ariens, Reid) would like to have a Luck on their team.

 

I really have no idea where Pagano ranks.   He's made some terrible in game decisions and his teams have not looked disciplined.    However, he has had to work with the crap Grigson gave him.  I'm willing to give him more time.

And that, I believe, is the crux of it.

 

Irsay hired Grigson and Pagano to do something big in 2012 - he KNOWs now that Grigson was a poor fit. But given the totality of the circumstances, I think Irsay still has faith in Pagano and believes him to be a good fit if given support from the head office. And Pagano has earned, in Irsay's mind, the right to prove it to the new GM.

 

One way or another, we find out this year if Pagano is bottom 15 Head Coach in this league or top 15 Head Coach in this league.

how about a coach who doesn't let his team start flat every single week for years, a coach who doesn't self sabotage the team with a * ridiculous fake punt against the best team in the nfl? or maybe a coach who doesn't let von miller go one on one against joe reitz all game so he can get your qb killed. or a coach who wouldn't put clowney one on one against Dwayne freaking allen so once again you guessed it doesn't get your qb killed. how about a coach who can discipline his rookies and players so Players like TJ green doesn't continue to get late hit after late hit after hit out of bounds. Or a coach who doesn't completely get bullied and pushed around by literally every single person in his life except ... once again you guessed it his qb who he gets killed like that's his favorite part of his job. gimme a break get this * bum out of here!

jesus let it go.  The only thing that sabotaged the game was Griff Whalen snapping the ball.

well first, Chuck isn't the offensive playcaller.  second, every team has a TE one on one with a pass rusher at some point in the game.  I don't recall the game you're referring to regarding Reitz/Miller

Green had 2 Unnecessary roughness penalties last year.  What other rookies had these obvious discipline problems?

The last part came from him literally getting bullied the entire time that Ryan Grigson was the gm and forced Pagano to use players who clearly weren't in the best interest of the team. Or him saying himself during his press conferences that his wife Tina literally wears the pants in the family. This is all coming out of his mouth mind you. Also why would I just "let go" of the fake punt that was arguably the stupidest play call I've ever seen, and you wanna blame it on whalen for snapping the ball?? obviously the coaching wasn't even up to par for the players to know what they had to do. If you can't recall what game Reitz was one on one against miller i'd recommend you watch the colts broncos games again.... Just because you like pagano for some strange reason doesn't change the fact that the obvious best move for the team is to be done with him once and for all and let our new gm bring in HIS guy. Duhhh

Grigson was Pagano's BOSS.  Irsay (you know, that guy thats the top dog) gave Grigson the authority to overrule chuck.  It was either deal with it at the time or quit.

 

"Or him saying himself during his press conferences that his wife Tina literally wears the pants in the family. This is all coming out of his mouth mind you. "

 

And you took him literally....the guy who is the emperor of coach speak. Well done.

 

 

 

"Also why would I just "let go" of the fake punt that was arguably the stupidest play call I've ever seen, and you wanna blame it on whalen for snapping the ball?? obviously the coaching wasn't even up to par for the players to know what they had to do."

 

When does it become up to the players to remember assignments and do what theyre supposed to do?

 

 

"Just because you like pagano for some strange reason doesn't change the fact that the obvious best move for the team is to be done with him once and for all and let our new gm bring in HIS guy. "

 

This season will determine that.

 

"Duhhh"
