Basis for that thinking?

Just a hunch. Would like to see Ballard who did well with Bears and now Chiefs.

I'm fine that this may be happening, but I'm really ticked that such detail is so public.

True or not.

It'd be annoying if it were a 'reality' show.

It's despicable in real life.

If Pagano is the only barrier to our top choice Irsay needs to kick Pagano to the curb.

I hope that's not true. He could always get his guy next year.

I dont think the special teams coach for the Chiefs is Irsay's idea of a home run hire. If thats the "take it or leave it" from Ballard i bet Jim passes. Honestly, I wouldn't want another unproven assistant either.

Yeah not sure on Toub...if this has any truth to it. I do want Pagano replaced, but I'd feel bad for him if he finally got canned after this crazy month long rumor mill.

Sticking point?  Hell, that's 3 pluses in his favor.

Just think of what a guy like Toub could do with McAfee and Vinaterie:cash:

Like you, I felt bad for Chuck.  Then I realized he was holding a 14 million dollar lottery ticket.  He will manage.

This feels dubious. Ballard would take the interview under the assumption that Pagano is the coach for at least this year. Not sure why he would completely dig his heels in the ground over what would essentially be a free year for him (if we don't have a good year, he can just fire Chuck). Seems like another unverified thing that can easily be retracted on, i.e. "they came to an agreement." Doubt Irsay would want this getting out if true, however.

Free year?  Yes, let's blow all our cap space to fill out the defense of a guy who will likely be fishing and searching for Sasquatch in Colorado a year from now.

Seems a bit hard to believe. From special teams coordinator to HC? Cut me a break! I just fail to believe this thread.

if Toub were all that great he certainly wouldn't have spent a year as special teams coordinator. What was he responsible for... a kicker, a punter and a long snapper? Next job running a team's offense and defense and all else. Ridiculous.

Toub has interviewed at least twice for head coaching positions in the NFL so it wouldn't be hard for me to believe.

Brad's not saying anything new either, I always remember hearing Toub with Ballard's name.

Ballard is known for wanting to be stout up front on both sides, he knows it's important. Toub played on the offensive line and was a D-line coach in Missouri for 3 years.

I am not saying Toub would be bad but not seeing him being an upgrade over Chuck. I could be wrong but I would love Ballard as GM anyway. I have faith in him building a Great Defense over the next 2 seasons if we hire him. He is such a huge upgrade over Grigson. Paton is still my #1 choice but Ballard would be 2nd.

Of all the things that could ever surprise me in this life....near the top of the list would be that anyone with real and exclusive information about the Colts would ever give it to Brad Wells.

 

Nonsense.

Eh? Ballard would have a year to evaluate the team without pressure and could still bring in quality defensive players. It's not like we need Pagano specific guys, just talent. Gives him a year to evaluate Pags as well.

 

Is Sasquatch in Colorado now?

Add in coverage and return units, he has also been a historic special teams coach due to his work with the Bears during the Lovie years. I think his return units set records. He has been on the cusp of being a HC for several years.

Yep, guys, its Paton. I did a Google image search of Paton and a picture of Irsay came up in the results.  There you have it. What more proof is there?

Actually that tweet came from a fake Brad Wells account. 

 

https://twitter.com/BradWelIsNFL

It could be a fake account,if it is it came from this Brad Wells account so is that fake also?  

Not much on twitter but the one I posted came from the one above. Sorry if it's Fake I just ran across it looking through the account above and thought I would share.

Super Bowl winning coach John Haubaugh was also a special teams coordinator before getting the Ravens HC job.

Yeah, look at the number of followers. But the twitter handles looks the same? Is that even possible?

He could have made his handle @BradWeIlsNFL the two L's in his name, one is an uppercase i and the other is a lower case l, they appear the same but they are not.
