REPORT: Colts expected to hire McDaniels as HC, per NFL.com

Recommended Posts

Does McDaniels affect anyone's thinking on what we might do on draft day?

 

There's obviously been whispers of Barkley - McDaniels' offenses haven't been built on the prototypical elite back play...:dunno:

Wouldn't be surprised if the Colts fed Kravitz/Holder the "deal not completely done" stuff. It can't look like a deal is already official, which I doubt it is, but yeah.

Deal can't be official until after the SB and McDaniels signs. It's as official as it gets.

Wonder if BB just retires at the end of this season, with his staff getting gutted by 2 ccoordinators filling spots by promoting Pats position coaches....

 

Flores the LB coach is rumored to be a candidate too - this season.

maybe it's just the colts that can't say anything?

 

They can't make anything official, and neither side can announce anything until the Pats season ends.

I think it's a promotion not lateral move

If it's not HC, it can be blocked. Eagles QB coach DeFilipo was blocked from taking an OC spot with another team.

Don't let csmopar see this...

 

It's a promotion, but the team can block anything that's not a head coaching job. In this case, Eberflus' contract expires after the SB, so the Cowboys can't block him from leaving.

Lol. Right. Csmopar will set you straight on the hiring procedures. :D

Yup. That's why I think the Colts want that out there, that it's not official.

But yeah, it's as official as it gets at this point.

Apparently Eberflus is very highly regarded, Dallas fans were often claiming he was their main priority this offseason.

Yep, many Cowboys fans wanted him to be DC but Jones kept Marinelli.

Would McDaniels really take Barkley? The offense runs well with Lewis and White, neither of which are on the level of Barkley. If we were to select a RB in the third round, the offense could run well too. 

 

Barkley would be like Kamara but better.  Kamara can do everything.

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.

 

As awesome as it would to get someone like Defilippo, he would just leave in a season or two. I assume McDaniels wants someone that will stick around and grow together.

Do we know anything yet on if he wants roster control or player selection preferences??

 

Not sure how that affects Ballard's job duties.

I'm leaning towards Chubb. McDaniels has made the offense work with Lewis and White and previously with Blount and other RBs. Colts have Mack. If they pick up one more, McDaniels offense could still work around them.

true, but Eberflus' contract ends after the Superbowl, and he is free to take any job he wants then.

Good thing is that the coaches are young. Peetz is 34 and McDaniels is 41. There's nothing about Eberflus so I have no idea how old he is.

I don't think Barkley necessarily, but I do think McDaniels will want mis-match weapons. I posted in the other thread about the possibility of signing Dion Lewis as a FA and possibly going after a big athletic tight end.like Dallas Goedert in the draft. I think both make sense ...

I totally forgot about the subject brought up earlier about HC and everything else.

I believe it's standard coach and GM relationship. Ballard will probably draft according to his scheme, and McDaniels will consult with Ballard on other stuff.

Judging from where he’s come from and the mistakes he made in Denver, I’d expect him to build from the trenches and defense.  OLine. DLine. And Linebackers. McDaniels schemes guys open. I could see us passing on Barkley & trading back unless his hands are receiver like...  Somebody posted a video of a tight end that looked VERY athletic. From a small school. I hope we can snag him even in the 2nd if we have too.  He looked very Gronk like...

this is about as official as it can be at this time.  I'd be shocked if something happens and he doesn't sign after this report.  As one article mentioned, if a report like this comes out and then McD backs out, that's basically career suicide.

Agreed - on one hand I love the idea of Luck getting a true top-level talent to work with, but with your sensible hat on, you have to think that Mack ticks a reasonable amount of boxes in terms of what JM looks for in at least one of his backs. The boxes he doesn't tick could be ticked on day 2.

That’s it Stitches. Great post. We do have a good history with tight ends named Dallas...  And Goedert looks LEGIT.

He tried that with Denver and failed. I believe he's learned from his failure.

I really keep going back and fourth on if I want the Colts to take Barkley or Chubb.  I think Barkley is probably the better player but guys like Chubb are hard to find and the Colts can still probably get a very good runningback in the second round.

    • Not sure if you saw my response to someone else who asked about that.   Smith played guard, in part because his arms are too short for tackle on the NFL level for most teams.   I think he's 32 1/4 or 32 1/2.    Most teams prefer 33 1/4 at a minimum if not longer.   That's the metric I'm talking about.     Ballard has talked about it often since drafting Smith.   He was a guard when he got forced into starting at RT.   Ballard admits he didn't think Smith could play tackle effectively at this level.   The scouts insisted he could.   Eventually, Ballard was running out of options and thought he didn't have much to lose.    Smith started,  did well, and we've never looked back.   I'll try to find his Combine Profile page....    And here you go...   you can see the page shows arms measured at 32 1/4.    Minimum desired as at least one full inch longer...   https://www.nfl.com/prospects/braden-smith/3219534d-4908-0765-f244-89a603c3a555  
    • I don’t think the defense will be worse but I’d be lying if I said coverage isn’t a huge concern. We are banking a LOT on Rock improving and becoming a shutdown corner, Rhodes rolling back the clock three years, Moore staying healthy, and Willis holding down the other safety spot where he was serviceable against the run but bad against the pass. We are a couple injuries away from starting Lafayette Pitts and Rolan Milligan, and we know there will be injuries. I did not like the way QBs were carving up the secondary late in the year, although I think a more competent offense will help immensely. Even Famous Jameis carved us up and he was practically blind. 
    • I haven't seen those at all. Like another person says, please show them/link them.
    • I've got a feeling Bruce Arians is going to get Tom Brady killed out there. Tom is going to need a lot more avocado ice-cream in that TB12 diet of his.
    • Hooker!! Hands down he in my opinion is the best player on our defense. I know his stats were down this year but his presence is definitely felt when he is on the field. Yet people around here want him gone.
