The Future of Caldwell and the Polians [Mega-merge]

Recommended Posts

I'm not familiar with Tressel's background. Is he an offensive minded coach?

Could it be that Caldwell stays (Polian's or not), and Tressel replaces Christianson?

Just throwing things up there along with everyone else.

I was thinking that too.I think caldwell stays and tressel is promoted to OC.What many people fail to realize is that peyton and jim(caldwell)have a solid relation.And my guess is that peyton wishes to retain him.

Things are turbulent now, but this is a possible script too.

i hope the colts continue to win also.

what has happened to both teams that he had success with after he was fired?

The Bills have not been that good. Polian's success with the Panthers is an exception. When they came into the league along with the Jacksonville Jags as expansion teams, both were given almost unlimited resources by the league to immediately become successful (more draft choices, huge salary caps and a chance to draft certain players from every NFL team). Both teams became successful and made the playoffs in their early days.

i have no idea what point you are trying to make.

You told, that teams those have been managed By Bill Polian, couldn't repeat their success after Polian's leaving.

Last 2 season wasn't successful for Colts, so there is no chance history repeating.

Still trying to spin your viewpoints just like the rest of us? You are trying too hard to suddenly appear to be the objective, in the end, what's best for the Colts fan. You have continually criticized (in a nice sort of way of course) others that disagree with you yet put on this (I believe) fake aura of your opinions is more valid than others.

Wow. I would have to conclude that I've previously done something to offend you. I'll hold off on saying that I'm sorry, because it's entirely possible that I'm not. I'll also say that it apparently wasn't important enough for me to remember, and that I'm not concerned enough about it to search back and figure out what it was. Is that a real enough opinion for you?

Let me be clear about a couple of things.

1) There are more than two thousand people on this site, and no-one's opinion is more or less important than anyone elses.

2) I don't spin jack. I state my opinion as honestly, clearly and consistently as I possibly can.

3) When I'm right, I leave it there without rubbing anyones face in it.

4) When I'm wrong I admit it.

5) I do try to be objective, always, no "suddenly" about it. Reasonable people do. It doesn't require as much effort as you imply.

I try to think before I write so as not to needlessly offend people, because while there can be short term pleasure in being a jerk, arguing is ultimately tiring, depressing, and pointless. Kindergarten rules are very helpful on the internet, and friends are more desireable then enemies. However when someone suggests that I'm a manipulative liar, I'll make an exception. Whatever aura you are referring to is your perception, not my reality, but the totality of your comments frankly makes my blood boil. You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Perhaps that's been the problem all along.

the colts were pretty good two years ago and the reason they weren't good this year is because manning was hurt couldn't play. your post doesn't make any sense.

So Manning causes 2/14 by himself, nothing to do with coaching ability, poor d-playing, horrible punt returns, lousy running game

i think better coaching would have gotten a couple more wins, but all the other things were true when manning was playing and winning 12+ games a season.

The problem with the Bills was exactly the same as the one with the Colts. Polian does not know how to pick interior linemen. When the perimeter skill players he overpays for get too old, something which usually happens faster with skill players than linemen because they are involved in more violent collisions, the team is left with an overpaid hollow shell and collapses.

    • You can see separate instances where he escapes and delivers the ball downfield in a highlight video, but that's not the norm(like with other attributes it's not about absolutes - you can find film of most of those players doing almost anything (both good and bad)- the question is about the frequency and consistency of good vs bad, etc). Watch some full game cut ups(there are tons of them on YouTube) and you are going to see what I'm talking about. It's very visible with Fromm IMO.
    • I just watched a video of him showing pocket presence, scrambling ability and he was pretty mobile. So He is obviously capable of it. It seems he keeps his eyes downfield till the last possible moment. Idk. I also saw videos where he threw completions for 55 yards and one for 60. Anyway, Arm strength can also be helped. Learning to throw with your lower body. It’s the accuracy and processing stuff that too few QBs have and he seems to have it. He might not be a first rounder but I think he might be like Russel Wilson. A good QB that didn’t possess typical height, etc..
    • I feel like the combine will tell alot. I think he will only run in the mid 4.5s. He doesn't have great long speed. Im not sure about his short area quickness either, he flashes quickness in and out of his breaks in space when he is allowed a free release, but he often struggles to separate against press man. He does have great size and catch radius though. He is a tricky evaluation, he has so much production, but alot of it is against unranked teams. I can see why he could fall out of the first, in a deep WR class.
    • This is hard one. There are so many great players in this class... I will also assume you don't want us to include positional value in this.    Chase Young Jeffrey Okudah Joe Burrow Isaiah Simmons   The fifth one is extremely hard for me. I can argue for like... 5-6 players here... Derrick Brown, Lamb, Jeudy, Andrew Thomas, Jedric Wills... hell... even Tristan Wirfs needs to be in this discussion, even though he will probably be RT, he will be a great one IMO. I think I will go with Jerry Jeudy here as my last one.
