  1. The 2009 SB barely factors into my evaluation of him while he was here so do not include me in that gross generalization. Also whether I forgot about Caldwell being assistant HC or not really is irrelevant because we're talking about him as a HC...not an asst HC On one final thought, if the Colts had won the 2009 SB, my opinion of him during his time here would still be the same.
  2. Um, it wouldn't be the first time a HC got fired from one job where he was bad, learned from his mistakes and then went on to have success with other teams. Also, just because Flacco won a SB ring doesn't mean Caldwell turned him into a SB winner. Flacco caught fire THAT offseason and was also drastically helped by Anquan Boldin's insane catching ability.
  3. Yes I did and I stand by that. I did not, however, say he was a bad coach because 'he couldn't make Curtis Painter a winner'.
  4. yeah it's easy to go 10-6 or better WITH Manning. But when you run Curtis Painter out onto the field trying to have him run the offense the same way Peyton did, THAT'S a terrible coach. He and Christiansen both. all of this is irrelevant because I clearly said 'WHILE HE WAS HERE'.
  5. He was a terrible coach the entire time he was here.
  6. Which explains why the Colts are leading the league in interceptions right?
  7. ok, first, no I don't think that's true. Second, I'm just speculating as to why they may be limiting his carries.
  8. Hey congratulations, you found an exception to the rule. Good job champ
  9. plus, with the shortened and practically non-existent pre-season, these guys probably weren't in the shape they'd normally be in to start the season.
  10. they're probably also trying to keep him fresh for later in the season...not wanting him to hit the 'rookie wall'.
  11. ah yes...I was in a bit of a rush so assumed you were the person I'd originally quoted. Yes I know what happens when one assumes lol. That was my bad. Personally, I don't care one way or another if Rivers gets in. I just think the idea of using win/loss record as a measure to consider is really, really stupid.
  12. Well this is not what you originally said. You mentioned his gaudy stats but then pointed to his win/loss record as why he shouldn't get in.
  13. that makes Rivers' win percentage 54.6%. Dan Marino had a bunch of gaudy stats but only 60.1% win percentage, just barely better than Rivers. Should Marino come out of the hall of fame? Or can we finally admit that win/loss record is the dumbest way to judge a QB?
  14. I get that, I really do. I've never been a fan of this scheme either. However, you also have to remember the Bucs, Bears, Vikings, Cowboys etc have had really good success with the same scheme. It's not so much about the scheme as it is the personnel and the playcalling. Rod Marinelli and Monte Kiffin ran the same scheme but were also far more aggressive than Dungy ever was and it seems like Eberflus is trending towards the more aggressive approach. At least I hope. The biggest problem Dungy's defenses always had came against power running teams. His defenses in MInn tended t
  15. watch his college tape and you'll see that he can throw with touch as well.
  16. my point was that the colts already utilize both power blocking and zone blocking. I saw both in the game yesterday. Currently though, they run more zone than power. I think and hope they will alter that to running more power than zone which plays to the strengths of both Taylor and Wilkins. Power blocking can be done from the shotgun. Doesn't require an I-formation and FB anymore.
  17. again the exaggeration lol. I didn't say they need to drop the stretch play and switch to zmashmouth 80s style FB running.
  18. They did spend first round picks on both Addai and Donald Brown. Wilkins actually reminds me quite a bit of Donald Brown.
  19. Ok I do think you have a valid point but you're also way exaggerating it imo. I think both Taylor and Wilkins perform better in power blocking scheme than they do in the zone/stretch. However I think both will be fine in a zone/stretch, it's just not using them to the best of their abilities. Colts already use both zone and power blocking but the ratio currently highly favors zone. If Reich is the coach we want him to be he'll recognize this and adjust to using more power blocking. I do think he left some yards on the field, but at the same time proclaiming after his ve
