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 he's their guy, they'll have plenty of time to work out the particulars and do all their due diligence. Seems like the Pats are going all the way this year again. 

 

I'm very curious about how many candidates they're going to interview. So far, just one minority that we know of.

I'm thinking that if the Colts want McDaniels and he wants to coach here , they probably will have a deal made before Monday . By deal.. I mean verbal agreement. If the Pats go o the SB , he can't be interviewed until the week following the AFCCG. Then he's "off limits" again during SB week. Seems to me that it most likely works that way as the jobs will get filled by candidates from non playoff teams or teams that lose in the playoffs.  I think it will be a short list and if you hear nothing easy on , it's for sure McDaniels.

That's evidently what the Niners did with Shanahan last year.

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.

The Erhardt-Perkins offense was developed in New England in the 1970s.  They've used essentially the same offense for 40 plus years. Well before Weiss.

Pettine would be a great DC for us. And unfortunately because he flamed out with the Browns, he’s not a guy you’d have to worry about leaving for a HC job later.

I suppose they could "cheat " a bit and confirm things with a phone call say for instance next Tuesday. Wouldn't really be an "interview" and would hardly be "screwing" NE . Maybe it's even accepted and pretty much allowed ?

I agree he had a pretty good D even while with the browns

I read last night and sorry for no link that Toub has been connected to having DeFilippo as his OC.  DeFilippo's contract is over with Philly (I believe).  This was from a blog so don't truly know how accurate.

This sounds like a very good outcome for our coaching and coordinator spots. 

 

Toub-Pettine-DeFilippo+keeping MacMahon would be a pretty good result of our search IMO.

That's a bit surprising. I would have guessed Toub would be the front-runner.

With Seattle guys in house, three months ago you would have predicted Darrel Bevell to get an interview, but his stock has certainly dropped.  He'll be lucky to keep his job.

Here's the full list by Bovada for the Colts head coaching spot:

Matt Nagy +300

Dave Toub +325

Jim Harbaugh +400

Josh McDaniels +600

Mike Vrabel +600

David Shaw +600

Todd Haley +1000

Frank Reich +1000

Peyton Manning +10000

 

Worth pointing out this was posted on Saturday before the list of our interviews was leaked and before it became apparent Harbaugh is returning to Michigan. 

 

Here's some interesting things:

-Matt Patricia is prohibitive favorite for the Lions job at -125

-McDaniels has the same odds for being the Colts coach as he does to be Bears coach and he's at +1000 to be the Lions coach

-Pretty much all candidates for the Bears job are OCs - top 6 - Shurmur and Nagy(+300), McDaniels and DeFilippo(+600), Haley and Reich (+700)...

He would run a 4-3 though right? I think that’s what he ran with the Browns and even the Jets.

''It’s a situation where I think people try to compartmentalize too much and just broad stroke it 3-4, 4-3, what are you? And my answer to that question is yes to all of the above,” Pettine told Buffalobills.com. “We are a multiple front, attacking, pressure-style defense. We’re going to play man coverage, we’re going to play zone coverage. What we’re going to do defensively is take advantage of what our players do well.

 

“I’m not bringing in a defense, this is going to be the Buffalo Bills defense. It’s going to be built around the explosive athletes that are here. Again starting with the front and that’s the solid foundation here and moving to the linebackers and secondary stacked behind them. It made the decision so much easier for me looking at the roster.”

I don't know if McDermott is reliable. He only has about 4K followers but is local journalist. Noone else has reported officially that we've asked for interviews with Matt Nagy and Dave Toub. 

 

I'm actually having a discussion with ESPN's Mike Wells about this very issue.   His stories do not list Taub and Nagy as candidates that we've asked to talk to.  

 

I asked why...   he replied we have not officially asked yet...    that seems strange to me...   if true, why are we waiting to ask?

I don't know about that. I know it was developed by them in the '70s, but Pete Carroll's coordinators were Larry Kennan, a WCO guy, and Ernie Zampese, a Coryell guy.

 

Before that, Parcells still had Ray Perkins and the EP. And of course, Belichick is from the Parcells tree.

They can't interview until after the wild card games. I assumed they haven't asked yet because of that, but they didn't wait to ask for Wilks, so... IDK

 

And it could be that they have asked, but it hasn't gotten out yet.

Maybe it's a question of scheduling? Like they don't want to overload their schedule right now and would ask for permission of those next week?

Maybe, but you can request permission without scheduling the interview. And we know they can't interview them until after next weekend.

could be they do in fact like Mcdaniels and are simply interviewing Wilks due to the Rooney rule and that way they can knock out that and be ready to offer McDaniels the job?  Not a proponent of McDaniels but Im just thinking out loud

I am not sure why the comparison with Pagano, but I also would like many others over him.

 

Pagano called the D plays for the Ravens for a year.  Nagy has never called plays period.  Andy Reid is the play caller.

    • 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.
