Zimmer From Runner

Recommended Posts

maybe if zimmer comes he bring Robert Mathis back. I believe Tampa is only other team chasing him. We better hurry up though, because I don't want bengals locking zimmer up with a contract extension.

It wouldn't be speed of decision-making that determines Zimmer's fate. He will go where he wants to go.

I think the point is your source is really is liberal use of that term.

Someone with the knowledge care to tell me what this guy has gotten right yet? The firing of Caldwell, yeah, but what else? That one wasn't exactly a risk.

I'm not seeing anything worth putting stock into.

I would like Zimmer. Tressel as HC heck NO!!!!!!!!!! as OC MAYBE he is college .. good coach there, but both teams he has been with has blemishes/hits.. I am actually suprised he is still here.. NFL is a different story !!

I would also be good with PC jr. which I think the Colts will head... history shows they are offense oriented not defense ( which would be my preference)

If it really is Zimmer i doubt guys like brackett have a job with the colts, and if they do its not a starting one.

I don't think he is. I think is more offensive IIRC.

He's a defensive guy. That's why I've never understood all these Tressel OC comments.

Would prefer an offensive minded hc BUT Zimmer has that FIRE and PASSION needed to bring that INTENSITY out of a team. From what I hear his players on the D side LOVE it!!! Now if we could GET Carmichael as oc to go along with Zimmer the sky would be the limit. (BOTH are rising stars in the NFL coaching ranks) The Colts have had a Tressel TYPE coach (CONSERVATIVE mild mannered) the last 10yrs and UNLESS Peyton comes back Clyde can DEFINITELY be upgraded. The GOAT made that BASIC set offense go. Over the last few years it lacked imagination (hardly no multiple spread formations or pre-snap motion) and the play calling became predictable even WITH Peyton. Once the GOAT went down that offense was HARD to watch! A Tressel along with Clyde combo (as some have suggested) would leave the Colts SETTLING for MEDIOCRITY instead of STRIVING for GREATNESS..... :lombardi:

Per Schefter tweet, Kelly just backed away from Bucs. If they have as much interest in Zimmer as the Colts, this could get interesting.

Its amazing to me that people make statements like this when they have the internet at their finger tips. Tressel started out being a QB's, recievers, and running backs coach before getting the HC job at Youngstown st.. How exactly does that make him a defensive guy. Tressel is an offensive guy. The internet is your friend.

I have seen many talk about Tressel the same way and have just ignored it. It never made any sense to me either. I can see why they make the connection because of how well Ohio State was defensively, but yes, he is an offensive guy.

    • That's fine, but I think buried in the ranking was the relative great performances of the later picks like Okerke, Willis, and Tell more than the earlier picks living up to....or exceeding...expectations.  How can they rank Ben and Parris very highly?  They hardly played.   Having the early picks exceeding expectations takes you closer to the SB than having your 4th and 5th rounders exceeding expectations.  JMO.
    • well tis the time of year where the Colts would be linked to most big name FA's because of cap space....though this would make sense. 
    • So it seems all the teams evaluators leave after the practices are over and watch the game from home. So everything that happens during the week seems to be more important then the actual game.
    • "One of the top free agents in 2020 will be Seattle Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, and Clowney has stated a team's likelihood of Super Bowl contention is a key factor for his signing. WalterFootball.com has learned from league sources that the Indianapolis Colts are one of the teams are expected to make a run at signing Clowney. The Colts have a ton of salary cap space and money to spend, and they could use an impactful player on their defensive line. Clowney would also be a great scheme fit in Matt Eberflus' defense. Signing with Indianapolis would also give Clowney the opportunity to play the Texans twice per year, and going against his former team could be a nice perk to signing with Indianapolis. There could be a competitive market for Clowney, and his preference for Super Bowl contenders could rule out some teams, but sources tell me the Colts are going to be a team in serious pursuit of the star defensive end."   Would not hate this.  Chris Jones would be my first preference.  Would allow Colts to address other needs in the draft.   Joseph
    • I definitely agree with that last, but I will say that I'm still convinced that Jacoby Brissett is better than the fans here let on.  The guy was held back to at least some extent in the second half by a wave of injuries to key receivers.  We went into several games with Zach Pascal as our WR1.  I like pascal as a WR4, but he can't get separation against elite defensive backs.   I saw what Brissett could do when he had a healthy receiving unit in the first half, and it was pretty good.  Let's not forget that before the wheels fell off we were 6-2 at the half and Brissett was among the league leaders in touchdowns.  That went away when our receivers went away, which should come as a surprise to exactly no one.     We are WAY better than our 2019 record suggests we are.
