Nick Saban, Come on Down...


Recommended Posts

I think the new head coach should be josh mcdaniels he is a proven winner he always has his offense prepared under any circumstance, Pagano is not the problem this team is put together to out score opponents which means the oc is horrible, I coach high school football, and I know to set up offensive schemes to beat blitzes, pep has not call but one screen pass this year nor has I saw once luck with a three step drop and then release the ball, our offensive play calling and design is horrible

I really love Josh as an OC but he is who he is because of Brady and Bill. He really bombed in Denver on many levels. Not saying he might not do well the second time around but a more proven HC might be the way to go.

Surprisingly I am from Baton Rouge Louisiana and I am a die hard colts fan since the year before peyton got there, Im only 33 years old and been a colts fan since I was 15, Luck is and have the potential to be the greatest in the game with the right guidance and pep Hamilton is not the answer unless he changes his scheme I think any offensive coordinator that comes in will make a lot of difference

I'll tell you one thing, our defense would be better. Not to mention, our team would have confidence. Right or wrong?

That doesn't mean he's the best option, but hay, I do see him offering things which we don't have and need to beat the elite teams i.e. Pittsburgh, NE, etc...

I don't get all the hate. OMG, he failed at his first NFL gig.......

I have never been a big fan of his but with Miami he never had the QB he wanted. That can be tough going from college where you get all the top college recruits to the NFL where finding a good QB is like a needle in a hay stack. Some guys are just best suited for college but I would like to see him give the NFL another go around. There is no question he has a brilliant football mind.

Did they go 0-13 and then quit...wouldʻnt be so hard on him if he just finished the season like a real man or shall I say real coach would...not to mention the team didʻnt like him either

Meh, I doubt we know all the details on that situation. Lots of players didn't like Jimmy Johnson....who cares.

Alabama and Saban are kinda like the Patriots and Belichick of college football. Usually they are both good teams, have well respected coaches, and have won several championships. However, they are also the teams and coaches people love to cheer against the most due to their successes. I am personally like most people and love to see the Patriots and Alabama lose, so I have a hard time looking at Saban objectively as a head coach option for the Colts. I personally think that Saban is a very talented coach and knows his football, but I don't know about his commitment to a team due to his early departure from the Dolphins. I don't really understand the huge hype with Saban, but I don't really see the huge hate either. I personally would rather have a few coaching candidates before Saban, but I would be willing to give him a chance with a great young QB to see what he can do in the NFL. The biggest obstacle here though is Grigson as I don't see Saban and him getting along and there will be a power pull in the ranks again like there is with Pagano and Grigson right now. I just don't see Grigson getting along with many HC candidates so I believe he needs to be relieved of his position as well in order to get a competent HC.

    • They are likely kicking the can down the road, and the negative consequence is higher cap numbers for those players in future seasons, and greater cap penalties to move on from those players in future seasons. The thing is there's no much else they can do. they're set to be nearly $70m over the cap in 2021, and other than these restructures, they would not be able to get under the cap by the start of the new league year. They would have to cut or trade all of their highly paid players.
    • I feel the hype about Carl Lawson is from a combination of people who haven't really watched him play, and who overrate "pressures" by assuming that all pressures are equally disruptive.    Lawson is a tough, physical, high effort guy, he tackles well, plays the run reasonably well, he has decent size, and he would fit nicely as a DE for us. He's not a dynamic pass rusher, and I don't think he ever would be a dynamic pass rusher.   He has some quickness and speed, good speed to power, but he's not the kind of explosive pass rusher that blows up the other team's blocking schemes. He has below average bend and closing speed, and he takes a lot of steps, which explains his tragically poor three cone. He also has below average length, and gets neutralized by good blockers. This is all obvious on his tape, it was obvious on his college tape, and it's why he went in the 4th round.   TomDiggs mentioned Lawson's knockdowns/hits and hurries. PFF recorded six edge rushers with at least QB 15 hits; despite the fact that Lawson had 24 hits, he only had five sacks, which is the least sacks among those six players. In fact, there were ten edges with fewer than 15 QB hits, but with at least ten sacks. PFF has 24 edges with at least 30 pressures; Lawson had 34 hurries, but was tied for fifth fewest sacks among those 24 players. In fact, there were five edges with fewer hurries than Lawson, but at least ten sacks.   My point is that QB hits and pressures only show a player that manages to get near the QB at some point during the play. Without context, they don't necessarily show a player that makes a definite impact on the play. That's why I value PFF's pass rush productivity (PRP) stat, because sacks are weighted more heavily than hits and pressures. And that makes sense because a sack ends the play. A QB can be pressured, even hit, and still make a positive play. Recognizing a sack as nearly always a negative play for the offense, PRP shows the difference between a guy who gets near the QB, and a pass rusher who makes plays for the defense. Sometimes the overlap is not as great as you might think.   Lawson's PRP was 8.5, tied for #18, well separated from guys like Bosa (10.6) and Watt (9.7). In general, a player with a bunch of total pressures, but low sack numbers, like Lawson, is a guy who gets a bunch of pass rush snaps but doesn't have the length, bend and closing speed to get home often enough. This is why guys like Trey Hendrickson and Leonard Floyd can have a third fewer total pressures, but twice as many sacks as Lawson (Hendrickson also had 80 fewer pass rush snaps). And Lawson gets a ton of pass rush snaps because he plays for a bad team with no other good edge rushers, so as long as he's healthy he'll have a lot of pressures, but he'll probably never be a big sack guy.   He's Trey Flowers. Better 40, same agility, not as long, mid level edge rusher who is well rounded and a good guy to have on your team, but not a dominant pass rusher. I can't see offering him $14m/year to not sack the QB. Any projection that has him as a big time sack guy is unrealistic, IMO.
    • It's nice to see Pittman, Smith and Okereke get some love.
    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to.... 
    • With me, road whites are off-limits.  As to the blue tops, as much as i do dig the color rush blues, I’m an old-school-uni guy, and would lean to white pants.   I’m in Penn State country, and there are some similarities i guess.   I do think improvements can be made in the striping.  Minimal enough cahange to keep purists happy, but could “update the uni.  Perhaps 3 stripes down the leg and middle of helmet.  Middle one thicker than sides.  Not crazy wide.... tasteful like the stripes on a shelby. The middle stripe could be horseshoes similar to the way seattle uses imagry.  Maybe a large horseshoe on each shoulder that circles down around the number.  Minimal...... but updated..... without losing the “brand.”   Remember that outdated font that was recently retired?  A small “refresh” might be nice.   I’d like to see a “ghosted” image of like padding texture or like metalplate image (barely noticeable) at shoulder pads, knee and thigh pads.  Like a 3d effect.   I remember oregon once had ghosted wings on the shoulders that were cool, bit not “too much.”
