    Kalen Ramsey/Luck interaction

    Guys like this do not realize they are costing themselves millions. Longevity is where you make the extra money to retire on; and I have no doubt they cost themselves extra years of income when their young talent is waning and GMs are deciding who should and should not be in their locker room.
  2. Good article. Thanks for linking it. It made me think of the line Irsay tweeted a year or so ago when he implied it was all in Luck's head. This article says the same thing, only this time, from Luck's point-of-view. Luck found what he was looking for and it made his re-emergence possible. I am eager to see what he and the team do with it.

    Welcome Coach Reich!!

    Not really. Everyone was like, "Oh, okay. He might be good". There was never a Pags love-fest. The love-fest started with his illness and #ChuckStrong. Before that, he was kinda a mystery.
  5. No. Now its time for new rumors.
  6. A 33 year old leader is not the same person as a 40 year old leader. In terms of understanding one's own self and your own influence over others, 33 years old is not a grown man. Getting there, but not a wise leader. Just not. In terms of professional careers, 33 years old is just getting started... ...yet someone gave him complete control of a billion dollar product. What happened in Denver is on Pat Bolen and and Joe Ellis. But Bolen wanted exciting, different - he wanted a wonder kid who was opposite of Mike Shannahan. He got it. The outcome was foreseeable and predictable. None of this means Josh McDaniels is the same person he was in 2009; and the Colts organization is so much the better for it. What we are getting is a head coach who knows what he is getting himself into. Who is still young enough to craft a lengthy legacy with the team. He is still a young coach with a brilliant football mind, but who has already had his failure as a head coach. Thank GOD we aren't wasting this opportunity on any other brilliant football mind who has never been in charge of the whole team before. We tried that last time. I hire people for a living. And Josh McDaniels to the Colts is what we call, "a good fit."

    Pagano was 63-53 in 6 years

    Either Pagano's system, or his inability to hold his coordinators accountable to perform to his standard, led to the Colt's poor performance. The things he 'wanted' the team to do were incongruent with what the team was actually able to do - and he was unable to adjust. Ever. Players might have loved playing for him, but the Colts under his leadership did not game plan well (at all) and he personally did a poor job of managing the Xs and Os well enough in game situations. The Colts, with Chuck Pagano as the head coach were constant under achievers. That is why he is no longer the head coach.
