 Ballard has been talking to JB about McDaniels. 

"According to the Boston Globe's Ben Volin, Ballard has been picking Jacoby Brissett's brain about his offensive coordinator in New England, Josh McDaniels."

I'm not sure how I feel about McDaniels. How good would he be without Belicheck?

Harbaugh has had success, but just not for me. Whoever we hire, just would like it to be an O minded coach, who will develop Luck to work to his strengths and someone who will hire a top quality D Coordinator and let him be aggressive and creative. Tired of this hesitant style we have had under Caldwell and Pagano.

Josh McDaniels is a guy who in my opinion got to see the coaching life in Denver and got great experience form that.  If he were to come here he has the understanding of coaching and allowing a GM t o do their job as well.  Let McDaniels structure our offense to keep Luck upright and quick routes for our WR's.  This will help our o-line troubles.  Also, his system that Superman mentioned helps with keeping the opposing teams D on their heels.  Another key thing that we can do with a smart QB like Luck.  

 

I will say I would like Jim Bob Cooter as well. 

 

Regardless, as they said during our game, Ballard wants a quicker paced offense next year to allow for Luck to stay healthy.  Get the ball out of his hands fast, similar to Manning and even Brady.  We will have to beat this into Luck's head though because he does like to hang on to that ball at times.

I still want Todd Bowles.  His Jets team has less talent then us but is competitive in every game.  

 

Diamond in the rough.

 

I don't think Harbaugh is going to come back to the NFL.  I think with what happened in SF he's going to be perfectly happy coaching college football.  

 

As I've said before coaching a big time program like Michigan and coaching an NFL team is actually a lateral move.  The pay is the same, the fan base is the same if not bigger.  The only difference is that in college he has full control and as long as he doesn't do something truely evil he can't really be fired as long as he's winning.

I think most of the coaches who left Belicheck have not panned out.  He's been coaching forever so I'm sure a few have.  McDaniels, Weiss certainly haven't.

Matt Patricia - that defense is pretty disciplined.  They game plan to take away the opponents best player and most of the time they accomplish that.  They make good halftime adjustments and pretty good in game decisions.

 

Plus he has been groomed with the hoodie's style of coaching and managing personnel.  Do your job - if you don't you are expendable.

By the way, McDaniels has become my first option over the course of the last two years. And I used to be firmly opposed to McDaniels.

Yeah...I kinda feel the same. Why do I feel dirty all over saying it?? lol

That said don't you think its kinda weird he didn't go somewhere this offseason or the last when his name was hot? I kinda get the feeling Bill might not be too far from hanging them up and moving up in the organization ala Tom Coughlin....so maybe Josh has been told he is the heir to the crown.

and why is that?

Yeah why is that?  Just because Ballard knows him from KC.  He interviewed a few times for a HC position.  Big deal.  He would cheaper than the big names that's for sure.  If Jim wants to hire a newbie he would be a good candidate I suppose.  I have a feeling Jim doesn't want a newbie though.  I think he wants experience this time like he did with the Dungy hire. .

He knows him from Chicago and KC.  They have quit a few years around each other.

I'm pushing his name because he's the best candidate out there. You mad that I didn't mention Harbaugh? 

 

We don't even know who all of the possible candidates will be lol.  And no, not at all mad that you didn't mention Harbaugh. I'm entertained by all of the love for Toub that only started after those unsubstantiated rumors surfaced that Ballard would only accept the Indy GM job if he could bring Toub with him as HC.

    • I voted Braden Smith, as whenever anyone mentioned our line previously, it was always Castonzo, Nelson and Kelly that were mentioned specifically by name, hardly ever was Braden thrown in there too. He has been stalwart at RT and definitely deserves far more credit.    However, after I pressed Braden and voted i had a thought.... and funnily enough I think the answer is TY Hilton atm.   Pretty much ever since he was drafted the Colts offence just hasn’t been the same when he isn’t on the field. That holds true still... even when he isn’t posting big numbers himself, the entire offence runs better when he is there. People are so down on TY that they were willing to let him walk, but it would’ve been a massive mistake. So glad he stayed.    
    • In the wake of the draft, I've naturally seen and heard a number of people discuss the outlook for the Colts defensive line. Paye and Dayo are spoken about as high upside prospects, Buckner is seen as a perennial All-Pro, and Grover Stewart is... never mentioned. Stewart has come on leaps and bounds since he was drafted, and has been as consistent and reliable as anyone on the D-Line the last two seasons. I don't feel like he's currently getting the recognition that he deserves, and would argue that he's the most underrated player on the Colts right now.   If you disagree, who would be your choice?   I have a couple of other contenders but feel free to add your own in the comments:   Rock Ya-Sin - Very solid when playing zone but gets burned or penalised once a game and that's all people remember.   Braden Smith - Being the third best lineman on the team means being top 5 at his position often goes unnoticed.   Nyheim Hines - Recognised for his ability to make plays out of the backfield but has also begun to show improvement running between the tackles.   Jack Doyle - Mr. Reliable. He'd still be top of my target list in a 4th and 5 situation. Never makes the highlight reel but is one of the most fundamentally sound football players on the team.
