Mack is going to thrive in that system.

Mack needs to work on his receiving all offseason.  From what I’ve seen so far, his hands are less than what I’d expect McDaniels is looking for...

Al Holcomb was the guy I wanted for DC. But I am open-minded about the DAL guy.

 

I wonder if McDaniels will even have an OC.

Yup. He was just giving some background with that bit of info this morning, it seemed like.

 

And people took it and ran with it. Can't say I blame them though. Been a crazy 24 hours.

So does he mean 2017? It's hard to see Ballard building a relationship in two weeks.

Haven't heard much about Peetz. Heard good things about Eberflus.

Okay, I'll be the first to say it.

 

I hope this OC is good at his job, for Peetz sake.

I'd assume throughout the season. Would kind of correlate with the reports that Ballard asked Brissett about McDaniels during season.

should they be talking about this before the end of the Patriots season?

Very interesting about the stuff between McDaniels and Ballard.  I didn't even know they had much of a relationship.  Either way, this is exciting.  McDaniels and a healthy Luck could be a headache for the rest of the league

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. So happy we're getting McDaniels. Going to be a completely different offense and hopefully we can have a HC that can lead us to the SB before Luck's career is over. Looking forward to the future of this team. Last thing on the list, hopefully Luck is 100%.

I mean, the official NFL.com page is talking about it, so I think that means it is Kosher?

An article describing the Dallas defense leading into this season - could give us an idea of ideology/approach from Eberflus.   Lots of 4-2 and 3-3, man coverage, and limited blitzing.  Making the thought of Chubb at 3 more of a fit.

It would be nice if he could bring DeMarcus Lawrence with him while he's at it.

I think they just can't officially announce it until next week (regardless of whether the Pats win or lose next week).  But perhaps this is one of those worst kept secrets type of things

Ballin on fools during the preseason and having other teams lick their chops trying to get him.

Similar thing happened with Shanahan and the 49ers. Hadn't signed a contract, but everyone knew he was going to the 49ers after the SB.

So I'm assuming Eberflus will run a 3-4, correct?

Even if he were to run a 4-3, it's not that big of a deal because Colts have personnel that fit.

I don't think so - that is not at all the primary Dallas look.   It is worked in, but not the base.

Makes sense...considering the Colts completed not one, but two trades with NE...after many said the teams would never trade with each other.

 

He probably had his eye on McDaniels for a long time. Seems like Ballard is one bad mutha who plays the long game.

He will, but I think he'll still call the plays. A young up and commer would be ideal for that position. You want someone that's moldable and can grow into the role while McDaniels runs the show.

 

I'm hoping we get some experienced position coaches though. You really need veteran coaching experience somewhere in that building.

After reading the article about McDaniels failing in Denver and turning to Dungy, I had a gut feeling that he wanted to come to Indy.  Just from what I saw of his character in that article, Indy & it’s suburbs are a great place to raise a family. He’s a Midwest guy, from Ohio, I think this has been his dream job all along. I truly believe we could have had him last year if Irsay didn’t drag his feet chasing ghosts and ultimately settling on retaining Pagano. It’ll be nice to have an explosive offense again...  Let’s just hope we don’t have a Belichick Pats/Jets scenario happen...  :peek:

After Ballard wanted to interview Richard and Wilks...I think it's almost a lock that the Colts will have a 4-3 base defense next season. And I am good with it.

 

There are some decent FAs available that fit that defense...which should help the transition.

Now let's hope some crazy story does not emerge out of NE, that Bill Belichick is to retire and McDaniels will replace him.

    • The bolded is right on.   Colts certainly have the ability for big plays, stretching the field, and so on. Running the ball effectively when we are 3rd and 2.5 to 3 yards out, has been one of our biggest challenges. The Pats at that same down and distance, have created the ability to do several things effectively by being proficient and consistent with all of them. You know  that Edleman/Welker/Amendola types can get that 3 yard pass, and it seems you have to defend it to the point of weakening your run defense.    The Colts had something similar with Manning/Edge/Marvin. 
    • We paid $12 million per for a past his prime Justin Houston.  I could see the Colts paying that much for McCoy if they really want him. It wouldn’t sink our cap at all to do a 2 year deal for that amount.  Should be enough to slap a Shoe upside his head and improve our D-line. 
    • The "patriot way" is just another way of saying shut the bleep up and do as we say 
    • The Browns are an enigma. In many ways, they are last year Jags- pre season favorites. They could fall like the Jags did, or escalate.  Under old regimes, they fold like a cheap lawn chair. Under Dorsey, I think they compete/ possibly win the AFC North.     The $$ almost always win, no matter what players say about championships.   If a player in his last stages is truly serious about playing for a champ, he goes to Belichick, takes a pay cut, checks his ego at the door, and applies his skills in the Patriot way.
    • Probably a nice guy, and I wish him well with the Raiders, but the Colts had to cut their losses and move on. He was always a "project" guy who just never really made much of an impact with the Colts. His career stats, through five years (23 receptions, 384 yards, 4 TDs), barely add up to one passable season for an average NFL tight end. Experiment over. Now on to Mo Alie-Cox who may be on a much shorter development timetable to prove that he's worth a roster spot.
