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.

    • Wow....    how dumb can they get?   Conspiracy to obstruct justice for starters.   They text about it so there is a trail of evidence, and they take money out of a bank to make the payoffs, so the paper trail against the two is now even longer!   Someone is having a bad, bad day!   Their lawyers are going to be very busy!    
    • By now, we should be smart enough to just go look at the numbers, the deaths, the active cases, the recovered and make up our mind. You should not be reliant on media reporting for just the numbers aspect of it, just my take on it. I can bring up the news network that you did not mention as well and poke holes in them as to what they do not provide coverage on as well but this is not the thread for it.   I go here and just look at the numbers every day and make up my mind based on all the categories:   https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/   As my posts suggest, if we are smart about it and plan it out well, I do not see a reason for no football. 
    • its about the numbers, 22 players on the field isnt a lot but 70,000 in the stands is
    • The odds a vaccine are not high. I'm just going to say it (again) you're all being lied to at a incredible rate about this virus and the simplest answer, given that they're usually right, is that it's an election year.  The corporate media (comcast, disney ect) have an agenda and bias and the current admin doesn't share it. Why won't any of the ABC, NBC, CNN of the world report the death rate as opposed to saying "the death rate doesn't matter" and tabling the number? Why won't any of them talk about the border? Or what of New Mexico and their policy that's different from Arizona or Texas?  The virus spreading among people who aren't at severe risk is actually a good thing- sorry Tony Fauci (he needs fired for the lies, the spin, the just getting it wrong and then blaming people who notice this.. he sucks). That is if we'd like to get back to normal- which get's back to it's an election year. Now if you don't mind I'm going to check the Premier League standings, or any number of other leagues the world over that's not based out of a country with an election this year. The lies. The damned lies.   
    • Yes, and that's exactly what they did! https://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/giants/ny-deandre-baker-quinton-dunbar-icloud-warrant-coverup-20200710-luc6jyesjjes5e3l56g4bpbnqm-story.html   Video evidence, Instagram DMs, testimony show payoff cover-up for DeAndre Baker and Quinton Dunbar, further implicate NFL players in crime. The warrant allegedly shows witness Dominic Johnson oversaw the payoff of DeAndre Baker’s and Quinton Dunbar’s four alleged victims at the office of Dunbar’s attorney, Michael Grieco.    Dominic Johnson Instagram DM: “I made them same n----s that said they got robbed come in and say them Boys ain’t have nothing to Do with it.” Baker DM to Johnson: "Yo I’m in the city now getting cash how much to bring ?? I’m tryna get there too u ASAP.”   Unnamed team sources, asked for comment on our breaking news, said they would not expect DeAndre Baker to remain on the Giants roster much longer.”
