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.

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.

    • I rewatched the game as I thought this would be pretty strange as well.  He did not play in the fourth except for his usual special teams slot.     I was confused as well by those who say he had a bad game.  He gave up one completion where he got turned around.  Other than that he was glued to his man as usual.    I think he's still having trouble living down his reputation from his rookie year. 
    • depth wise, S, OL, and iDL are my biggest concerns. if folks were grading positions ( starters and depth), i'd be surprised if many graded safety in the top half.  outside of Hooker, lots of questions, at least to me. i definitely don't agree with Venturi. ESPN doesn't either. Hopefully the starters stay healthy, and Willis grows into a stud.
    • lol... you wrote a novel. while i didn't read it all, i did skim. the mock draft stuff, it wasn't a poll. it was a well defined systemic grading. if you're mom can do well on the 1st round, why didn't your favorite guys? lol. on the wide receiver study, it was laughable. no defined parameters, no comparative cross position stats, etc.. not even Busch league stuff.  like i said, legend in your own mind.   in terms of who can dish it out, but can't take it, look at your reaction above to a "sad".... what a rant/tantrum.....  self awareness is obviously not your strongest trait. feel free to "crush" me anytime... gives me a good laugh.
    • very astute observations!!
    • You live your life like the Coyote chasing the Road Runner....    and you keep running into the mountain side,  or running off the cliff....     OK....    you're not going to change....   So, I'll take apart your nonsense --- again.    This will be the longest post I've ever made,  trying to answer all your nonsense.    Doubt you'll read it.    But here it comes....     Of course we know if Luck's injury, whatever it is,  ISN'T minor.   What minor injury do you know lasts four months?    He barely participated in any off-season program.    Does that sound like a minor injury?    The Colts have NEVER, EVER called it minor.   Not once.  The only thing they've said is he hopes to be back by certain deadlines,  and he's missed almost every one.    Does that sound like a minor injury?    This paragraph may confuse you.   It's full of common sense and logic.   I don't know how you got the nerve to try to argue that no one knows.   Unbelieveable!   Nope.   No Tantrum from me.   Just pointing ot what should be obvious,  but apparently the obvious isn't obvious to you.     By the way,  while you were giving me a sad on my post to my friend CBE,   do you know who was giving me a "like"?    CBE.    I criticized his post and he still gave me a like.    He know while we may not agree,  he knows I'm not trying to pound him.   I'm  trying to be as honest and factual as I can.    No wonder you can't see for yourself.   What triggered me, was your latest attempt to sound like you know what you're talking about.   You judged Willis on half of the first pre-season game.    That's all you've got.    That's it.   Doesn't even occur to you that that is.....   NOTHING!    Hello?    And you present it like it should be taken seriously,  when it should be laughed at.    Goodness gracious, you want to go back to the media draft comparison?    I was hoping for your sake that you wouldn't.    But since you insist.     Did you ever really look at that poll?   Seriously,  did you look at the four category breakdown?    Did you see what was actually involved?    If you did,  you shouldn't have been crowing about it.    First,  what I care about from guys like Kiper and McShay and Jeremiah and others isn't just the first round.   My  momma can do a decent job on the first round, and she's been dead for nearly 30 years!    I care about their view on ALL ROUNDS.   And your survey was only about the first round.   That's it.   There were four categories.    In three of them,  the leader got no more than 50%.   That's it.   The best person in three of the four categories scored no more than 50 percent.   When the top guy is scoring no more than 50 percent and everyone else is close behind,  then no one really knows anything.    And the one category that the winner did well in --- one category --- he scored in the 90's.   And everyone else was right behind him.    So, most everyone did well in ONE OUT OF THE FOUR categories.   Big stinking deal.    I tried to tell you this silly survey didn't support what you believed but you wouldn't listen.   No surprise there.  All you cared about the results.   The fatal flaw.     Finally,  without a single fact,  you offered this opinion in that post.    I remember it like it was yesterday,  that your new age guys were doing a better job than the more traditional scouts.   Based on one poll.   One poll of one round.    And you said the older guys like Kiper and company were resting on their laurels and not working as hard.   Nope, the old guys were covering all seven rounds.    Most of your guys,  covering one round.   You have no facts to support that, but that's your view.    When logic and common sense would tell you that the guys I prefer make a ton more money and have their reputation at stake.    They have more to lose.    There's no way they're resting on anything.    But you'll say ANYTHING to try and prove a point.   There's no argument you won't twist to try to win an argument, no matter how foolish the argument is.   I've told you publicly and privately,  you're not interested in honest debate.   You're the least honest poster here.  You're only interested in winning and you'll do anything, say anything to do that.      As to the WR study.    You got crushed.   I'm talking about a bank safe fell on you and your response was to talk about cherry picking stats.    Either English is a second language or you don't know the meaning of the words.     I made two links for you.    One was almost identical to yours.    Yours covered 25 years dating back to a time when passing rules were dramatically different so comparing a receiver from 1990 to one from 2018 was silly.   We're playig a different game now.    My first link covered 20 years from 1995 to 2014 .   There was great over-lap in the two studies.  But the conclusions were entirely different.   The only reason I used it was your post said roughly 60% percent of 1st Round WR's were successes.    Mine said roughly 40%.   Guess which one you preferred?    Surprise!   Then the second link was one of my own making.    I listed every 1st round WR since Luck came into the league in 2012.  That's 7 years.   The last 7 years.   I put into bold each 1st Round WR who was clearly a success.   It came to 41%.   It also showed how few WR's have been taken in the last few drafts.   That's the NFL talking, in case you weren't paying attention.    You didn't dispute one WR.    Not one.   But you called it cherry picking.   Clearly you don't know how to use that expression correctly.    And now you throw out a list of criteria as if you're making the rules here.   Here's another free tip.   You're not.   Never have.   I'm not surprised you don't recognize the facts I put into posts.   You don't use them.   You're all about the opinion.   Most posters here are.   Because that means every single poster can simply say.....    "I'm entitled to my opinion."    Yes, they are.   Everyone is,  even you, who has no need for facts.    But what you're not entitled to is your own facts.    Just like you stated Funchess was a terrible signing based on your facts,  and it never even occured to you that Ballard and Reich had other facts that showed DF could be useful to us.    You actually thought you knew more than they did?!?    Again, unbelieveable.   You had no facts to support your nonsense about Reich being a poor play caller.   You had one game.   And I called you on it.   You've been doing a very bad back-peddle ever since,  but that's your view, with no facts to support it.   In fact all the facts support the exact opposite view.   Yet, you still try to claim victory.   It's so intellectually dishonest that it's nauseating.   And so I observed,  that with almost nothing to base it on,  you thought Willis has inconsistancies.    Thanks, Capt. Obvious.    Tomorrow will likely be sunny during the day,  turning to widely scattered darkness at night.    Anymore obvious insights?   Funny, how you now publicly call for me to ignore your posts,  when a few days ago,  in a thread I was barely even in,  you took a completely uncalled for shot at me.    Or does the phrase "legend in his own mind" not mean anything to you?      Bottom line....    you can dish it out,  especially when you think no one is looking.....   but you can't take it.   Glass ego.   I call a fraud a fraud.
