Why hasn't he been fired yet then?  The game planning for the Bengals game has begun I'm sure

Probably not worth a whole lot. But you never know... If they were to do something it would need to be today IMO... 

I agree but who knows.

That conflicts with what Kravitz is saying.

He's saying that it wont happen today but that his "sources" say its gonna happen this week.  Again, take it with a grain of salt.  That said, JMV has been right more times than not

I just don't see Pagano getting fired until the end of the season. Irsay typically waits until the end to let people go.

Why would you wait to fire your coach mid-week?  That makes very little sense.  Not jumping at you but this source that Kravitz has.  It would be today and then the new guy gets everything settled and focused on Cincy.  Personally if we get blown out against Cincy or just flat out look bad he will be fired going into the bye week, if he is fired during the season.  I highly doubt he is!

JMV reporting that his sources telling him Pagano will NOT be coaching against the Bengals...... take it for what it's worth 

 

Not saying you are wrong as i haven't been listening in the past 15 minutes or so but thats not what i heard in the beginning of his show.  He said he would be "shocked" if Pagano is coaching this Sunday but i didn't hear him say anything about his sources saying he would not be.  It was more of his opinion.  But again maybe there was more and i have missed it?

Yeah, hes mentioned his sources, was even asked directly on twitter and he replied that, yes his sources were telling him that a coaching change is coming before the cincy game.  Like I said, I dont put much credence to it.

Why is everyone blaming Pagano for the loss of these games???? He is not on the field missing catches. He is not on the field making bad throws. He is a head Coach that unfortunately has to listen to the other coaches calling the plays. The big shots upstairs calling plays. He receives the same play book everyone else does. Yet he is blamed for all of this. Why not blame the players or "big wigs" calling the shots. They are to blame not our head coach that should have the support of the Colts organization and fans. It's their job to provide talented players to make big plays in situations. Instead Coaches get blamed. It's a shame that he is being blamed for players not pulling their weight. Pagano didn't get or allow our qb to get sacked 10 times. Blame defense. Point out their mistakes and make that news of the day.

Agreed. But I could see a coordinator or two going too

His choice of offensive coordinators/the type of offensive he wants to run

Undisciplined play

Poor adjustments

Poor gameplans

He's a former defensive coordinator and our defenses have been generally really bad

Well if JMV is saying that i would lean toward believing it. He isn't wrong often. Do you have the tweet where he said that i cant find it.

Because of the lack of fire.  If he can't motivate his players then that's a problem.  Combine that with guys like TY coming out and calling out a certain group of players, and its easy to see that Pagano has lost this locker room.

Firing Pagano mid season gains nothing. He’s gone, everyone knows he’s gone. Who takes over head coaching duties if he got fired? I’d hate to see us start winning heh

If Luck doesn't play I don't see us winning more than 5 games and Chuck will be gone too. Next season we should be miles better with a healthy Luck, new Coach, and another Draft.

Let's hope we don't suddenly become a "quarterback desperate team..."

Only concern here is we are already losing the locker room. 10 more games and we will see more in fighting and guys who may become real adversaries.

Toub may not have HC, OC or DC experience but has been around for a long time. my idea of a good coach is a good manager who surrounds himself with great assistant coaches and manages them and keeps control of the troops. is Toub the guy? Who knows. being a former head coach does not guarantee success either.

Toub has been around the NFL for a while, and has worked with a lot of good guys. Same with Ballard, and you can add in his two deputies from Seattle. I wouldn't worry about their ability to put together a solid coaching staff.

 

Rumor has it Ballard has lots of connections around the league, so whoever the next coach winds up being, I don't think he'll have trouble filling out the staff.

    • How can you say they’re playing fine when our coverage is so bad. Maybe they’re one or two big plays but that’s how you lose football games. Lol 
    • With the Colts not playing this week, it allows a chance to look at where we are as a team and, if you are to look at our season so far based on pre-season expectations, it makes for quite good reading, in my opinion.   So I decided to make a list, based on pre season expectations, listing who has been a pleasant surprise so far, and who has been a disappointment:   Pleasant Surprises   Jacoby Brissett - Goes without saying, he has been a very solid stand in for Andrew.  Has made errors but I don't think anyone could expect a 2nd year player to move systems and play as well as he has.  Not worth thinking about how the team would have played with Tolzein under center. Cornerbacks - Did anyone expect Desir and Melvin to be as strong as they have been?  Melvin asking to go up against Brown last week says a lot about his character too. Nate Hairston - I love this guy.  Potentially my number one pick for this category and a long term asset for this defense. Al Woods - Hankins was the big money addition, and has done well, but Woods has been excellent value. John Simon - I cant decide if I love him or Hairston more!   Mathias Farley - Hard hitting, strong in the tackle.  Very solid player. Rigoberto Sanchez - When Locke was cut, did anyone else have a sinking feeling in their stomach?  Sanchez has played so well I don't even think anyone has missed Pat (for his punting anyway), which is a massive compliment to the kid.  Kudos Tom McMahon for unearthing this talent.   Disappointments   Vontae Davis - A real disappointment for me.  All the talk from training camp was that he was back to the old Vontae, then picks up an injury and comes back and plays poorly.  Donte Moncrief - It was interesting hear the WR coach talk about him last week, admitting that he has been "hot and cold" and its so frustrating to see the raw ability not convert to the field regularly enough.  I still think there is something there but would not be surprised if Ballard lets him go. Jack Doyle - It was interesting listening to the "Chopping Wood" podcast where they mentioned that Doyle cost us two games.  He did have that one game where he was phenomenal but he had high expectations from last year and being made TE1 for 2017.  I am not worried about him long term, but has to be listed here. Le-Raven Clark - Say no more.   Other Notes:   Marlon Mack - I don't think I can put him in as a pleasant surprise as there were expectations on him and, although he has been explosive in some instances, still a lot to work on in protection and inside running. Offensive Line - I did think hard about putting them in disappointments (not just Clark) but I don't think anyone came in thinking they would be an elite unit and, with the amount of injuries and shuffling, I actually think they have faired as I would have expected.  A long way to go but Castonzo has been strong I think (and unfairly targeted) and Kelly is a stud so there are strong building blocks and I trust Ballard will address this after focussing so hard on the defense this year. Honourable Mentions - Mingo, Gore, Hunt, Sheard.   Looking at the above, although the record is poor (and you are what your record says you are), to look at what we have done in recruitment and the increasing trajectory of play, a change of coaching (which seems inevitable) could mean we come back strong in 2018, with the potential for strong draft acquisitions.   Feel free to add your own for either category but thought I would share my perspective....  
    • Guys....   Not be a Debbie downer here, but let’s not fall into this trap again. We’ve been down this road many times with players who probably aren’t in the league anymore.   While I agree about Hairston, let’s pump the breaks on Desir. He’s had a couple nice moments, but future starter is jumping the gun for him. Let’s wait and see what the rest of the season is like for Desir. There was a time last year when the OL was “fixed”. I’m all in on Hairston who has been exceptional every week but one step at a time.
    • I think you are right, we'll never know for sure.  Let's just hope he recovers and is back next year...I think we all can agree on that.
    • I can't speak for anyone else, but personally I don't listen to radio or watch that much sports television besides broadcasts of Reds and Colts sporting events. Working in education with a full time job as a dad has put perspective on things important to me.    When it comes to Andrew and this whole injury saga, I highly doubt we will ever know the complete truth of everything that has transpired. Logic dictates that Luck was not getting cortisone treatments on a weekly basis in 2016, but that is only based on my opinion and nothing more. There isn't any full evidence to discredit or support the claim that he was indeed receiving these treatments.    I don't blame Irsay or the staff either for any "false" statements. When Jim made his comments about Luck returning this year, I believe he truly meant it. The ball has always been in Andrew's court. Only he for sure knows the truth about what is going on with his shoulder.
