He didn't come to mind at first, but I would agree, is Bostic still under contract, he might be another guy or Simon, although both were hurt. Maybe Woods a little bit? 

I think sometimes we mistake leaders for best players.  While best players are often leaders that’s not always the case.  To me the leader is the guy when the team is struggling who pulls the team together before a key fourth down and says I don’t care what’s been going on we are making this play and the guys believe it.  

 

I thought Reggie Wayne was the leader on offense after Peyton left and since Reggie has been gone they have never replaced that. Don’t get me wrong I think Luck is a leader but the QB spot is sorta unique in that they have to be a leader no matter what.  I think you need another guy on offense who buys into what the QB is saying and leads the guys in following if that makes sense.  I am not sure if the Colts have that right now.

They are trying to keep the search internal.  I don’t think we’ll hear all the names involved.

I can believe in Mcdaniels from an Xs and Os standpoint.  Especially with a strong QB like he'd get with Luck.   Not sure that I'd copy that exact same system they've used with Tom Brady because I believe they are two different QB.   Mcdaniels is not my choice but I do believe he's competent football wise.  It's the personal relationships I have pause about.

What’s his system even like though? Seems like B.B. is the mastermind there. People seem to think McDaniels=The Pats Offensive System. I don’t think that’s the case though. And I also don’t get all the “he learned from his time in Denver” talk. How? Based on what?

Agree thats why we missed Reggie off the field as well as on. I Think AC has to step up maybe Doyle?

Learned time in Denver, there is an article on here that was good. Scroll back you can find it. McDaniels is the OC. B.B is more of a defensive mind. McDaniels IMO is a guy who likes the short rhythmic passing game limiting QB hits and sprinkling in runs and taking periodic shots long, while controlling the clock. A system which makes it hard on defenses.

Only time will tell whether he learned or not.   That will also have to be sorted out in his interview(s).    I'm sure whatever system he would implement would definitely have some carry over from what they've been doing in NE for quite some time.   I just think it shouldn't be a carbon copy.   I'm not sure whether it's his sytem or Bills.

We went 16-0 and won the super bowl until the salary cap bug made it impossible to continue. 

 

Just sayin. 

Good enough for me - Madden is no different than any computer model.

I guess we’ll see because one way or another, I think he’s going to be a HC this year. I’m not saying he won’t suceed. I just think there are too many assumptions about him that aren’t backed up with any sensible evidence.

I think Bill may have taught or definitely ironed out that offensive system because they've been running virtually the same stuff ever since Charlie Weis in my opinion. Different varients of the same system.

Did he ever worked on the offensive side of the ball as a coach? If I recall it correctly, he didn't.

Personally, I like the idea of hiring McDaniels. The main thing though is will the new coach lead us to victories. Let's face it that's what it all comes down to.

He failed once. Try someone else.

I think AC should be that guy.  He’s been here the longest but he doesn’t strike me as that kind of personality.  I thibk Gore was that guy but I don’t think he will be back.

Belichick hired Weis in 2000 when he took the job. Weis installed his offense and ran it until he left in 2005. McDaniels joined the staff in 2001. He eventually became the QB coach, and worked directly with Brady, under Weis. McDaniels took over offensive play calling in 2005, and was named the OC/QB coach in 2006, until he left in 2009.

 

No question Belichick knows the system, but the succession plan is why the offense has endured all these years through three different coordinators.

Always. O'Brien was a recent addition before he became the OC, but he came from Duke, where David Cutliffe runs the same offense.

I sincerely hope we get an offensive minded HC or Toub. Richards from Seattle looks like a good candidate but I'd rather have someone who can transform our offense.

Tom Pelissero @TomPelissero

Josh McDaniels’ first head coaching interview will be Thursday with the #Colts, source said. Most coveted candidate in this cycle.

McDaniels interviewing with us this Thursday.  I thought it would be this week before they started practicing next week.  Then I believe we would have to wait until they finished their season.  Will be interesting to see if he gets a few more in.

So you're saying that we should hire someone that has zero experience as our HC, because they haven't failed as a HC? That's insane... Either way it's a gamble and at the end of the day, you hire the guy you think would be the best HC for your team. Having HC experience, failing, learning from it, and trying again is actually one of the best scenarios you could ask for.

Just to nitpick, the rule requires interviewing a minority candidate. Doesn't have to be AA candidate. Ron Rivera was a Rooney Rule interviewee a few times.

 

Is McDaniels a minority guy ? Just kidding as we all know he's not. If he were , the Colts could just do the Thursday interview and announce it when NE's season was over. I give it like 80% McDaniels and a 20% chance its Richard or Nagy.

If I was Mr Ballard I would go either Frank Reich or Dave Toub. Both have good experience and seem to know how to build tough football players

His stint in Denver he was one of the youngest HC who first year went 8-8, second year 3-13. So I wouldn't call that a fail. Especially knowing who his qb's were in Denver

    • You make good points on this. The Pats have good reason to be skeptical of the Texans here.   I was more talking about the specifics of Caserio's contract that prevent him from interviewing with another team. But evidently the NFL approved it...
    • Isn't that also true of the candidates that you think teams are in a hurry to hire in January?     You could have said the same about Ballard in 2017. He got beat out for the Bears job by Ryan Pace, so he was a leftover. When the Colts job came open, and he was considered the favorite, and media outlets spoke of him as one of the most coveted candidates on the market. (Irsay is prone to hyperbole, but he called him the most prepared GM candidate ever; it's not likely that Irsay felt Ballard was just a "leftover.")   My point: There are always good candidates. Same is true for head coaches, assistants, etc. It's shortsighted and hysterical to act like there are no good GM candidates on the board in June. The guys who you say teams will be rushing to hire the following January are on the board in June.     Not sure why you're arguing this. It's pretty obvious that Caserio is the guy they wanted; they look to have canceled their GM search for now, which suggests that they're going to wait until Caserio's contract expires after the 2020 draft and attempt to hire him, pending further developments.   And to my point, he was not hired in January, so the desire to get a good candidate (or the guy you want) doesn't require making these moves in January.     I guess I could have phrased that differently, but what I said was they keep virtually all their staff in place, meaning they might change a piece or two in Year 1, but most of their staff remains the same in Year 1.    But I did say that's typical, which left room for outliers. And I was speaking about GMs that take over the job in January, not after the draft (or later, like Gettleman and Dorsey, recently).    If that came across as overly dogmatic, I didn't intend for it to be. But I stand by my point that it's typical for a new GM hired in January to keep his staff mostly in tact for that first player acquisition cycle, and make changes at some point after the draft. This is what Ballard did, keeping Jimmy Raye until June, then hiring Dodds and Hogan. There are other examples.      This is what I reject. Firstly, it doesn't matter. Things change. I don't think I need to say much more on that. Secondly, we have several examples of teams in recent seasons changing GMs outside of the typical Black Monday in January window where big changes are traditionally made. Chiefs fired Dorsey in June, Panthers fired Gettleman in July, now Jets and Texans. I'm not saying it's a trend, just that it's not as rare as you make it out to be, at least not recently.     To the bolded, I didn't really give this a lot of thought in 2017, but it's hard to know how much difference it would have made. Ballard went through his first cycle with another GM's right hand man and front office staff, for a coach that he didn't have any experience with. Ballard's approach was noticeably different in 2018.   This might seem half-baked and out of nowhere to you, but it's not. I jumped into this debate with the same viewpoint on Reddit a couple weeks ago, and kind of transported my thoughts into this thread, but didn't start from the beginning. In the other conversation, I think my initial post was something like 'recently I've been thinking that this is a better time period to hire a GM...' If I had posted my thoughts that way here, maybe you would have understood where I was coming from a little better.   That said, it's not just an impractical rambling that I haven't thought through. I don't know if there's any way to prove that one way is right and the other is wrong; I'm stating my preference, strongly.   My primary argument in favor of hiring a GM in June instead of January -- which you haven't addressed -- is that the work that goes into free agency, the Combine, pro days and the draft starts way back in the fall, if not sooner. When you hire a GM in January and give him six weeks to prepare for free agency, eight weeks to prepare for the Combine and pro days, and three months to prepare for the draft, that GM is not operating at full capacity. He would be better equipped if he started the job the prior June.   Do you think that's a weak argument? If so, why? I think that's an easy starting point.   I said earlier, if the Texans had waited until January 2020 to fire Gaine, all this criticism wouldn't exist. And the only practical difference is that they would have handicapped their new GM. (This is a more effective argument for the Jets, since the Texans are apparently not hiring a new GM yet.)   Like I said in my first post in this thread, imagine if the Colts had hired Ballard in June 2016 instead of January 2017... I'm sure people would have been critical, wondering why we let Grigson run the 2016 cycle if we were going to fire him, but imagine how much better prepared Ballard would have been for his first cycle with an additional six months on the job. 
    • Ballard's pre and post draft videos are Must See TV.  He truly is Dialed In. With my old memory, i will be able to watch them again in a few weeks and enjoy them. Like watching Andy Griffith maybe, it just never gets old.   The look and words from Frank about getting Campbell was Great.  He is so pumped.       
    • Although I will say didn’t we almost beat the eagles last year?
