Colts Interview Butch Davis

Recommended Posts

I'd be ok with that. He was the Cowboys DC during their dynasty years wasn't he? And a former Hurricanes HC lol.

He was a part of the team that was riddled with allegations, suspensions, inappropriate conduct, etc. No ties I can think of have him directly related, but he was fired before this last season.

History of success, and guys do deserve second chances. Who knows? Could be good.

He won the Super Bowl with Dallas as the defensive coordinator in 1993. Butch was also the HC in Cleveland while Pagano was the secondary coach. Some connection between them.

Could be good with his knowledge of defense plus pagano's knowledge might help us out some on that side of the ball. Would not mind him if he was dallas's D coach during their dynasty years.

Pagano was also his DC at UNC for Davis first year there.

There is the conection. I think as far as just pure coaching we could do a lot worse. He has a pretty good history as a DC.

He was a DL coach too, with his knowledge of DL and Pagano's knowledge of secondaries could make a good combination.

hey, we're in the market for a new DL coach also...lol we are in the market for pretty much everything but HC still, unless CC gets to stay...which if that means we keep Peyton, i'm all for it

First night N91NA(The Colt's plane) has spent a night away from Indy. Must be a pretty important talk with whom ever it is. I'd think Butch Davis would fit nicely and would contribute to that "best staff" in the NFL. I look for the DC to be named next week. Maybe it's Butch. Butch and Chuck, kinda has some ring to it. Go Colts!

I've heard about Butch Davis coaching that strong cowboys D a long time ago, but my question is will his Defense be outdated. The NFL today is different from back then so it's just something that crossed my mind.

I thought it was signing just above avg players to super large contracts :)

Well that too, among other increasingly poor decisions (making his son GM, no backup QB...etc.).

Well, no one keeps the same EXACT plays forever. Besides, Steve Young's 49ers had one of the best passing offenses in history during that stretch, and that Dallas team was able to slow it down 2 NFC Championships in a row. A healthy mind is never out-dated. No scheme is ever truly out-dated. The NFL doesn't see anything new in terms of scheme; it goes in cycles.

Wow Pagano wasn't kidding about "the best coaching staff in the NFL".

I hope he is right. There is some potential on D. A few players and a good scheme is all we need to compete.

This isn't pointed directly at you Doogan, but to anyone who doesn't want a coach because he 'cheated' (i.e. all the people who ragged on Tressel).

Every head coach knows at least some of their players are receiving improper benefits. Some are better at distancing themselves from it than others.

If you want further proof, just watch a game. Try to count how many tattoo's you can see on a player and multiply it by $200 (very conservative). Those kids must all come from wealthy families, right?

He did pretty good things for UNC as head coach before he was fired. UNC was under some NCAA investigations so letting the HC go is the first step any organization does to try to clear thier name. I think Butch did nothing wrong but being the HC made him a target. Go figure...kinda like Tressel with Ohio. He turned that team around and actually gave UNC some football cred. There was actually some excitement while he was there. I wish he were still there at UNC.

Butch Davis new d coordinator?

I mentioned this a few times the day it was announced that Pagano was hired. Pagano has coached a lot of years with Davis in Miami, NC and Cleveland. Also I think it could be very helpful for Pagano to have an experienced HC on the staff, someone who can offer some advice and guidance on how to run a team not just one part of it.

Having Pagano and Butch run our defense would make our 3-4/4-3 hybrid defense lethal once we got a good NT and Secondary.

I agree. Davis could play sort of a assistant head coach role in addition to DC. He would be a very valuable coach on the team.

    • Might want to dig deeper in that one. Warren Moon for starters.  Why you make the comment then? 
    • Normally I’d be enraptured by the NFC playoff race, but this year I can’t seem to care. Sports have become such a drain on my life that I’m becoming apathetic, and I have a lot of others things that are way more important. I guess I’ll say that whoever wins that division is my pick to make the SB. 49ers really need the one seed, they need to stay warm and cozy in SF, a trip to Seattle, Minnesota, or Green Bay in December would kill them
    • Easy. Unless you’re Phillip Rivers, you need to win a SB to get into the Hall. That’s just the name of the game. Also, as good as Ryan and Stafford have been, there are always lots of guys who deserve it more. Maybe someday they’ll get in, but not soon. Whether we think Stafford or Ryan will be HOF isn’t really relevant anyways
    • It's been a Great run.   I don't care what anyone else says or thinks, I greatly appreciate having witnessed this once in a lifetime HOF worthy kicker!   to a legend.
    • Colts Mailbag Colts.com beat writer Andrew Walkers take on Chad Kelly getting a chance...   “Do you envision Colts giving Chad Kelly a chance to show what he can do because I have seen him play numerous times. I do believe that he can be a superior player to Brissett and Hoyer.”   Walker: We get this question (or a version of it) a lot, Jess, and, no, at this point I don’t really see Chad Kelly getting an opportunity to play any sort of significant snaps at quarterback for the Colts over the final four games of the regular season (barring any unforeseen injuries, of course). That’s just my take on the situation. Kelly’s not only the third-string quarterback, but it seems as if the Colts would want to continue to see what they have in starter Jacoby Brissett, no matter how the rest of the season plays out. Then there’s this: Indy doesn’t even typically carry three quarterbacks on its active roster, so while Kelly has clearly done a good job coming in and showing development and taking advantage of his opportunities, his status, according to Frank Reich, remains “week-to-week.”   “Chad has earned it,” Reich said on Nov. 27, when asked how long the team would likely keep three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster. “He has done a good job. So right now we have been able to do that. We will probably stay that way as long as we can.”   https://www.colts.com/news/mailbag-adam-vinatieri-nfl-draft-2019-week-14-tampa-bay-buccaneeers
