*Article* Patriots on Josh McDaniels: Smart. Innovative. Forward-thinking.

Recommended Posts

https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2018/01/19/patriots-josh-mcdaniels-smart-innovative-forward-thinking/1045462001/

 

Some interesting quotes in here:

 

“Man, he’s so smart,” said Phillip Dorsett, the former Colts first-round pick who was traded to New England in September. “To me, he’s like an offensive genius.”

 

“The game plan every week is very, very well thought out,” offensive tackle LaAdrian Waddle said. “Everything is laid out perfectly for you.”

 

“There’s a high standard,” White said. “And you’ve got to do it in practice. If you don’t do it in practice, you’re probably not going to be out there on gameday.”


Getting more and more excited about this hire.

That'll be doyel's next angle. 

 

"An offensive genius who took Dwayne Allen and Phillip Dorsett and did less with them than we did here. Color me impressed!"

It is not a co-incidence the Patriots took a while to win their next SB till McDaniels came back in 2012 and they have won 2 since then.

It will be very interesting to see whether he can find a DC with the same high standards regarding game planning and execution. If he can, we will be in serious business - make no mistake about that!

Ha yeah definitely, I normally agree 100%, but now I'm conflicted, at least with NE facing Jax this weekend, if McDaniels can't effectively gameplan for Jax in the AFC game, what's that say about gameplanning regularly for a division opponent. But then again, I've heard a wise man say we learn more from our mistakes, so, I guess go Jax!!!

 

Ha, anyways its been a min. @BrentMc11 hope all is well...

After reading about him, his high expectations, and his competitive spirit, I can see where his downfall could (could!!) be coming to Indy and not having success his first year or two. 

 

With that said, I’m really excited for the Colts to hire him and watch him work with our young guys. McDaniels and Ballard could be the winning combination.

One of the things that I gathered is that a lot of the players refer to him as a teacher. Ballard emphasized that the next coach would have to be a good teacher of the game as well.

Wait, 

 

So Holder went down to NE to do an article on McDaniels, and never talked to McDaniels directly.

So he is basically Lindy Infante revisted.  Head Coach retread and OC genius.  That didn't work out well for us either!

Holder is not a football guy.  It appears he wastes a lot of dollars just to go to NE and slam down Lobster and drink with his fellow journalists.  I think he used a cheat sheet.....:bossy:

Hey Buck....I have been on the IR for about a year.  I missed all of the great people on the Colts Forum.  I was physically and mentally unable to remember things or debate.  I will hopefully be back.  I had heart surgery 3 days ago.  I was not getting enough O2 to my brain.  I also had a severe wound from passing out while in afib.  Mental is back....3 months for the IR to end. :)

 

See I still rumble and bumble a little.  :)  (I hate the Patriots and the Jags.  HAHA!)

Wow! Well, that's adventurous. 

Glad to hear you're well on your way back.

Wow!    You've been through so much!  So glad you're back!   Your absence has been noticed.    The place isn't the same without you.

 

Stay strong!    Fight!    Win!

Hey Brent glad you are doing better, I was wondering where you have been. I don't like either team as well. I hope Minnesota wins the SB.

Don't know if you are joking or not. But you do realize that the chances of getting McDaniels to talk about his future when they are in the middle of a potential Super Bowl run is next to nothing? Not to mention, he is a PATRIOT under BB which makes it even more likely. The article mentioned how it was hard to get players to talk about it, let alone McDaniels....

Sorry to hear about your health concerns,  I have a few of my own and I know how draining it can be.  Just gotta fight man.  Sounds like your getting up though and will be ready for round 2!   I don't know you but I'm wishing you a fast and total recovery!

Nice to see the return of my favorite ole LB. Missed ya Brent! I hope you, RG, the kids, & your dogs are all thriving buddy. 

 

I know I'm tired of the Pats winning so much hardware. It's not that that team isn't exceptionally coached & all. I just wanna see the Vikings win it all in their own backyard. That would be a okay to me. 

 

I like the Eagles too. But, I'd like to see the Eagles win it all when QB Carson Wentz is healthy all yr long provided INDY isn't in the Playoff hunt down the road of course.

As far as the McDaniels article is concerned, I'm a firm believer in giving Josh another shot at coaching. As long as he's not running the video department at LOS, I'm cool with it.

 

Walk away from the camera Josh & remember, you're not Bill Belichick & this city will embrace you with a clean slate. You are gifted on offense.

 

Just stick with what you know & nobody's getting fired early. Kapeesh. Good.

Wow, if Hoyer has to play for Brady...

 

Who, if anybody, at the beginning of the season could imagine that the final 4 QB's squaring off for the Super Bowl in 2017 would be -

 

Case Keenum

Blake Bortles

Nick Foles

Brian Hoyer (if Brady can't go, but I bet he does)

 

No Rodgers, No Eli, No Rivers, No Brees, No Ryan, No Big Ben, No Wilson, No Stafford... No Cousins... No...  {keep entering QB names here}

    • Billy Price is likely going in round 1... or early round 2. IMO you have to take him round 2 if you want to take him.    BTW Bond didn't look good IMO. Person looked better than him. 
    • They have great talent on offense. They have Sterling Shepherd who is one of the best WR2s in the league and they just drafted Evan Engram in the first round and he will be a great mismatch weapon for them. Their problem last year was that pretty much all of their receivers got injured at some point. They were fielding WR4s and WR5s on their roster as WR1 at some point. 
    • Part of the problem with Brissett holding on to the ball too long was being scared of making mistakes. When he first started he did throw a couple of game losing picks. Not getting any help from the offensive line nor the running game did nothing for his confidence either. As the season went on he was playing not to lose games instead of playing to win. Getting leads just to see your defense not play well enough especially in forth quarters to hold a lead. All of these factors played against him. Just remember Peyton's first year?  Look, I am not calling him a Manning but it is not unusual for first year starters to struggle with the same problems we seen out of him. He was thrown into the mix and didn't even know half the playbook. Learning on the fly is not easy when you are playing at the same time. He was basically a rookie even he had started a couple of games but he was in a great system on a complete team and wasn't ask to do too much.  Brissett needs to work on his mechanics and IMO that is where Frank Reich comes into play.
    • I think with a healthy Luck, and if Barkley is there, they will feel it's easier AND quicker to build that high powered offense that they invision rather than  a very good defense.  I doubt they can achieve both in this offseason.  The Defense will have to take a backseat to the O for a while.
    • Same here. I think part of it must be smokescreens. Part of it might be one team trying to make other teams go look for faults so they can get him late in the first or early in the second?
