Need someone. Not calling for a coach change yet, but all 3 coaches seriously need to upgrade themselves

Be more creative and flexible. Thinking the same plan is gonna work every week is the reason we get blown out the way we do

Each time we face New England we played them the exact same way, it's honestly sad

only time we played them different was when Arians was OC and thus the result of us being in the game until late

You gotta be aggressive, and Pagano isn't that guy to preach that

Neither is Pep or Manusky

You don't seem to know what "aggressive" means.

No kidding!  We all like Coach Chuck...he 's a good guy...but he is not a tier 1 head coach.

I beg to differ, CanuckColt. Get your point, I do. However, Chuck Pagano IMO is a "tier 1 head coach" from a tactical point of view. Chuck does suffer from time to time with not imposing logistical will on his coordinators. I do believe judging from last year that the issue has already been corrected in his mind by the correlating statements he has mentioned from D & O lines. In addition to that, the meetings of FAs and Jimmy's statements point to it as well ... i.e. stopping the run, creating the run, and scheming.

By "turning Chuck loose", I think you'll see a more aggressive & priority geared head coach, IMO.

Yeah man, I miss Arians. I am just sick and tired of being ran over and dunk and dunked by Brady and co. I'm more confident in our pass rush, but we seriously need some guys up front who can stop the run.

People blame luck, but seriously. The guy never had a true running game behind him and an inconsistent line. He can't do it all himself, he needs help.

Yep, Luck has too much on his shoulders. I feel that's why he has those plays where he won't just throw it away but instead he throws a INT trying to make a play. Hopefully Frank can come in here and change that. Take the burden off Luck a bit

should the colts operate like the pats and have pags be head coach and gm? also what about head coach, gm and defensive coach all in one? it has worked for the pats.

Bill is not the DC, Matt Patricia is and he did an outstanding job this year with the defense.

 

Also, Bill is the GM but has always had player personnel guys help him, i.e. Scott Pioli, Nick Caserio. And the Pats have a very in-depth scouting department as well. Bill has final say but he is far from a one man show.

 

Also, in terms of Pags becoming GM, Belichick had the good fortune of becoming HC for the Pats after Parcells and Carroll both of whom wanted more control over personnel, especially Parcells. Kraft has often talked about his maturation as an owner when he brought Belichick aboard and allowed him to be GM and coach. So I think in some ways Bill benefited from that in addition to his own resume as a coordinator and a HC so he had earned that trust. I think Pags needs a few more years before he is given that type of control from any owner.

    • That sounds good.    I would be fine with 6-8 pm and 9-11 pm ET with a 5 minute window for picks, so 16 picks should be done in 120 minutes. It would be like the real draft starting Day 3, where they get only 5 minutes between picks.     Would you have time around the beginning of April to help moderate this along with me? If it is a small window of time, it is a smaller time commitment on my front and yours, so I like this idea.   I can ask @NFLfan @csmopar and @danlhart87 again if they would be willing to make themselves available for those small windows of time thus giving us plenty of options. Let us bring this thread back up then.
    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
    • I didn't say he could be as good as Leonard. I said pretty clearly that if Leonard was 95/100 That I think Oke's ceiling is about 86-90.    By in which I also added that any team would be alright that that level of play. I think you are misunderstanding. Because we both seem to agree that Oke will more than likely be a pretty darn good player.
