Ian Rapoport: Colts coaching search down to McDaniels or Vrabel

HC: Josh

DC: Kris Richard

OC: Mike McCoy

ST: Toub

Is Kris Richard's contract up? If not, like Vrabel, we would have to offer him an Assistant HC title in addition to DC to make it a promotion.

Pretty sure all the D guys are frontrunners for NY. And it really feels like we are McDaniels top choice

I'm not a advocate or proponent of McDaniels by any means but I do think the longer this drags on, the higher the chances are it'll be him

He was relieved of his duties as Seattle DC along with all their coordinators.

The troll Brad Wells is the guy who first said this way back when, didn't believe it, but Luke Dunlevy while not super well known is pretty respectable. I don't think he'd just be spouting off lies.

I think Patricia goes there honestly if I had to guess.

I think Richard was let go. But as far as I know, Toub is still under contract with KC. Dont see him leaving unless its HC

Explains the no invite for Toub.

 

...and as a general hiring principle, I don't like it.  Just hire the best candidate, regardless of age.  The average run of NFL head coach is short anyway, even for the successful ones.  Dungy only spent 7 years here.  You could hire Pete Carroll or Arians tomorrow, and in terms of age, it wouldn't matter.

Would be ok with either I think MacDaniels would. Be great from the offense/ he will need a D.C. And I have always admired  Varbel! I like the shotenhimer oc idea! With all this Patriot stuff though it just feels a little DIRTY! :yuk:

If that's so, then Richards would be my top choice for DC. He's young, an aggressive play caller and helped manage the Legion of Boom. If he is chosen as DC, that might also mean that Minkah Fitzpatrick may be in play for the #3 draft pick. Can you imagine Fitz, Quincy and Hooker in the same backfield?!

Schotty was terrible as OC at Georgia, just throwing that out there. Not very impressive as OC with the Rams either.

If it ends up being Vrabel as HC and Schotty as OC, I think things will get ugly.

Why can't we have both?

McDaniels: HC

Vrabel: Assistant HC and DC

AND keep Shotty for the OC

:rock:

Why Schottenheimer?

If McDaniel were hired as HC, I would be ok with Vrabel at DC/Asst. HC.and McCoy at OC.

He's good with quarterbacks and has rapport with Luck. Don't worry, McDaniels will be calling the plays.

If McDaniels gets it, I’ll TRY to give him a chance.  Who knows?  Maybe he’s grown and isn’t the jackwagon he was in Denver.  And maybe he wasn’t included in BB’s intricate cheating schemes, most of which we’ll never hear about.  And maybe he could have been successful in NE without all of BB’s cheating...wow, it’ll be hard to give him a chance...

Then we may be in bad shape or choose Vrabel, lol. Hopefully, if we are interested in McDaniels, there's already a mutual agreement for him to sign when the Pats lose or win the SB. I don't know if we can afford to lose him and wait that long as well.

Vrabel can't make a lateral move unless the Texans allow him to and I don't see them letting us poach their DC. Even elevating him to AHC doesn't make a difference in our ability to steal him. You're either a Head Coach or an Assistant Coach when it comes to that rule. Same thing with Toub.

Based on Ballards hire of a few ex seahawk execs and the positional players he has drafted, I think his ultimate goal/desire would be for Colts to intiate a cover 3 defense similar to seattles. I think having an offense like NE's and a defense like seattle would be hands down impressive if it could be obtained

If Belichick himself were hired as Colts HC, I guaranty you that Colts fans would forget about "cheating".

Not sure why you quoted me? I just meant you'd need a good DC with Vrabel as HC too. Wasn't talking about getting Vrabel as DC.

So our choices are between a current Pats coach or a former Pat player.....It feels a little wrong lol

I could certainly live with McDaniels. I think McDaniels and a healthy Luck could be a deadly combo.  It'll be interesting to see who he hires as his coordinators

Could they just give him a special title like, I don't know, Lebeau had?

 

Regardless, I'm sure he's a genuine head coaching candidate.

That’s exactly how I feel.  Tough to want him but realize the likelihood of it happening.

 I don't really want our next HC's best trait to be "a leader of men." And that seems like his best trait by far. 

 

I don't know.  That seems like the FIRST qualification I'd look for with this team at this time.  

 

I don't think that was Chuck's strength at all.  I think he was well liked, but that's different.

I don't think so, either.  He may be next in line if O'Brien goes at some point soon.

That's a fair response. I agree about the Chuck comment.

Vrabel still just doesn't intrigue me at all. I don't see much upside to the actual strategic side of things, once it comes to gameplanning, on-field decisions, clock management.

Would love McDaniels or Shurmur  as HC with Rishard as DC. Rishard helped coach up the legion of boom and with another talented piece at CB this team could move towards that level.

    • Right now he is a top 5 QB.  When Cam Newton and Matt Ryan won their MVPs they were top 5 QBs at those times.  Why is that so difficult to admit?  Right now Peyton Manning is not a top 5 QB.  When he was on the Colts for most of his seasons he was.   This isn't an all time list, it's a right now list and right now if he does not play another down in the NFL at this very moment Patrick Mahomes is a top 5 QB and every general manager in the NFL would agree.
    • Hines becomes the other slot guy especially out of the backfield
    • It is in every players contract and NFL rules player abides by.  The player alone is responsible for everything in his body. Can not plead ignorance.  If a player is unsure about something, consult the team physician or just do not take it. No matter the circumstance of occurrence, if any of these (or another substance eventually breaks down into one of these) listed substances are detected, it is a violation of the NFL Performance Enhancing Substance (PES) policy and player is subject to suspension.   It is long, thorough list (SARMS is on it at the bottom) -   https://www.huntonretailindustryblog.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/16/2016/04/2014-NFL-List-of-Prohibited-Substances.pdf   As far as SARMS, many contain unlisted and illegal drugs (Nov. 28, 2017 JAMA article) as well -   https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/article-abstract/2664459   Buyer/Player beware...   "Findings  Chemical analyses of 44 products sold via the internet as selective androgen receptor modulators revealed that only 52% contained selective androgen receptor modulators and another 39% contained another unapproved drug. In addition, 25% of products contained substances not listed on the label, 9% did not contain an active substance, and 59% contained substance amounts that differed from the label.   Meaning  Selective androgen receptor modulators, which have not been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, were available through the internet and were inaccurately labeled."
    • We have had two top notch quarterbacks over the span of the last  20 or so years that most franchises would drool over to have on their teams, so someone please tell me how having a top tier QB  is better than having a top tier GM after one title and two SB appearances over that time span?   To me, having a GM pulling the strings toward a well balanced team and managing the cap space correctly is worth more than one player.   We now have a QB friendly system in place, much like what the Pats have had over that same span of years. The Eagles won a title with a  back up QB with a QB friendly system also.   Rodgers and Brees has one title a piece with other big names such as Marino having zero which makes my vote for Ballard much more solid.
