I think Bears end up with Nagy if this is true. He seems to want to work with them and Chi have some nice young pieces with their RBs.

McDaniels will most likely be ours most likely. He won't have to teach a raw kid how to play he can just come in and start installing with one of the best.
 

 

Good. I hope Nagy does go with the Bears. He is certainly not a favorite candidate of mine.

I can only remember 3 coaches who won superbowl(s) with their first teams as HC in the last 30-35 years. And I doubt there were many before. Those 3 I remember are Harbaugh, Payton and McCarthy.

 

Do you mean first time head coach in the NFL? If so, there have been many more. In addition to Tomlin, I can think of Brian Billick, Bill Parcells, Bill Cowher, George Seifert, Jimmy Johnson, Mike Holmgren, Mike Ditka. There may be others that I don't remember.

Listen to this post game address by him: 

 

 

He is well spoken and commanded the room. He knows his X’s and O’s, probably better than Pagano. He also held one of his young CBs accountable by saying what he did wrong. He didn’t just sit there and sing the praises of the team but was critical and went into depth about how the game went. That’s all HC stuff IMO.

I can 100 Percent see this guy as a HC. I think he'd do a fantastic job. He knows things down to the fine details and easily articulates what he wants. Then he holds people accountable including himself.

I watched only 5 minutes. I was impressed. He sounds and carries himself like a head coach ("commanded the room" is accurate). Reports are that Gettelman wants to hire Wilks to be the next Giants head coach. 

 

If Colts fans don't want a rookie head coach, Shurmur would work well with Luck. I have not heard any reports of the Colts being interested in Shurmur.

He does look like a 'leader of men' and he does look like a great communicator. I wouldn't mind him as a HC. Honestly, we probably know very little about the candidates when it comes to HC-worthy attributes, so I guess if you trust Ballard you will trust his choice, if you don't you probably will have questions about whoever he hires. Right now, he hasn't given me reasons to distrust him so I feel good about most of the candidates and I will feel OK with pretty much any of them.

I had brought up Pettine as a possible DC for Toub weeks ago.

Yep, he seems like the embodiment of the "command of the room" cliche. If there was an entry on wikipedia on it, they could put that clip in there and people would know what is meant by it.

Wilks reminds me a lot of Mike Tomlin personality wise. Only I think he may be smarter. Hes the guy I want. Defensively I know the scheme would change, but they use bigger players in that version of the 4-3 he runs. Most of our players would still fit and I love that he believes in bringing that blitz.

He would be good at DC.  I wanted Caldwell at OC (if he'd take the job).

Funny, but I listened closely to what he was saying in his presser. The beginning sounded exactly like Pagano. In addition, he used the word "great" over and over. Used terms like "one day at a time", and "It's hard to win a game in the National Football League", and "It was a great team win", and "Its all about taking that next step", gave credit to the other team, saying they were well coached....etc, etc. 

 

No, I am not saying that he is not head coach material. I am pointing at the over the top criticism of Chuck Pagano's word choices in his pressers, and how Wilks is now attractive....partly because he is new. If he were to become the head coach, and take us down the same road, his cliches would become irritating to many fans just the same....without merit. Sayings and cliches don't make coaches good or bad. Coach Pagano failed as a coach in the owners and GM's eyes, and he is gone. It would be refreshing to see fans praise or criticize the next coach because of his coaching abilities....not because of his speaking at a presser. 

 

Just a thought...

Just have to remember that coach speak is spoke all the time by almost all coaches. They all fall pretty much under the same umbrella.

It's hard to fill time without giving any information away.

The thing with Toub is that he could probably assemble an impressive staff. His connection with Reid goes back to the 80s, and he’s worked with a lot of great people from his time in Philly, Chicago, and now KC. Pettine would be a nice DC. 

 

Wilks is at the top top of my list now, but Toub would put together an incredible staff.

Chuck Pagano didn't get fired because he used too many cliches.....

 

There are plenty of other LEGITIMATE reasons why he was fired.

 

Come on now...

Except for B.B., he never says anything more to the press than what’s required.  He’s earned the ‘no nonsense’ right.  

 

I dont care what they say, I care how they prepare and how the team reacts to them.

IF Wilks is smarter than Tomlin (a W&M graduate) then whomever lands him is getting a very intelligent man. I’d be very happy if the Colts hire Wilks.

Well, I have to say, after the Chiefs-Titans game, Nagy has fallen off my list of favourite candidates. After Kelce's injury, that entire offense has fallen apart despite with Smith, Hill, Hunt were still on board. 

No, thank you.

I agree don't want anybody from KC no better than Pagano.

    • IR. PUP. Starts Wk 1.    That's covered it. 
    • Multiple times I have said the length of the deal would be the issue...like probably in four different posts in this thread. But I think there are people who would even be against paying a RB (like Zeke) that much money for 1-2 years...or wouldn't even give up a late pick for him.    I brought up Funchess because signing Zeke would be akin to signing a Funchess each offseason for a few years. From a financial standpoint...that's not unreasonable. The picks are a different discussion...but Zeke is also on a completely different level...and there is going to be an acquisition cost to getting a player like that.    The bit about Mack was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. The rest of my comment isn't meant to be an attack or even a generalization...it's just an observation about what I have seen in many fans the past year (the Mack situation actually predated a lot of this).   There seems to be a theme...that when a talented non-Colts player vet is mentioned as a possibility to acquire (who would have a cost attached)...there are many that are either dismissive or against it...to the point that late round picks are too much to give up. I think that happens more often than people ignoring the acquisition cost and saying "gimme, gimme." (To be fair...I think saying people "routinely" ignore the acquisition cost is as much of an unfair representation or generalization as what I said...just on the opposite spectrum).   I respect your opinion...and we actually agree on many things (including aspects of roster construction)...I just think I must be in the minority when it comes to taking 'big swings' around here.
    • So here we are again, bunches of cap money, hoping our draft picks are as good as last year, but sweating our QB issue.     How many draft picks are we gonna horde?   How much cap space are we gonna bank?   I realize this deal with Zeke might be just a rumor and forum fodder, but if we have a chance to bring him in, I say yes.  As I, and many other members have said many times, we have a QB that can win a super bowl, but so far we have wasted the opportunity because we lack that 1 player that completes the puzzle.     Andrew has suffered more pain playing on our team then any other Colt's player that I can recall,  I say again, it's time to loosen the purse strings and sign some proven talent to give him a fighting chance.
    • I don't look for him to do much at DT. He played really limited snaps on the interior, really only when they game was far out of hand. Much like here in Indy, there were much better guys on that interior at Ohio State. Tyquan didn't get many "meaningful" snaps inside. Even now he's going to get limited snaps inside because Autry, Hunt, and Ward as just better interior players. I still think he would be a good, cheap replacement, for Sheard, if they got him back down in the 260's. He's good against the run and may get a handful of sacks a year against average RT's. I still scratch my head on why they insist on doing what they are doing with him now.     Yea that's not the story. Him and J Bosa were the starting DE's until they left. Hubbard eventually took over for Bosa when he left and Chase was still sitting behind Tyquan, Nick, and Sam. Chase will be a stud though and I have no doubts he'll be a top-10 pick next year barring injury. 6-5 265 with stupid athleticism, and is equally as good against the run as he is rushing the passer.   Maybe they were thinking Tyquan could turn into a Michael Bennett-type, who can bounce inside and outside on the fly, but I just don't see him being that kind of guy. He wasn't overly athletic at 260'ish, so he's definitely going be hindered with another 10-15-20lbs.
    • Cards lost 5-3 in a rain out called after the top of the 8th. Cubs back in 1st place after tonight. NL Central standings heading into August 22nd are:   Cubs 68-58 Cards 67-58 (.5 back) Brewers 65-62 (3.5 back)   Here's a question to Cards fans, @Jay Kirk , @Barry Sears, and @Myles, what do you guys think about important games being called after the bottom of the 5th of games? This was called in the bottom of the 8th. In the playoffs it is different, if a game is called because of weather, the 2 teams resume the next day where it left off. Having said that the regular season is different, thoughts?
