McDaniels Co-Ordinators Lined Up

Recommended Posts

‘As first reported last week, Matt Eberflus (Cowboys LB Coach) and Jake Peetz (Raiders QB Coach) in line as McDaniels co-ordinators in Indy’

- Jason La Canfora

 

 

Sounds like it’s pretty likely. Anyone know anything about these guys?

Here is an article I found from 2013. It is when the Cowboys switched from the 3-4 to 4-3.

 

http://www.espn.com/blog/dallas/cowboys/post/_/id/4708681/new-scheme-old-hat-for-matt-eberflus

 

Eberflus has ties to the 4-3 during his time at Missouri (article mentions speaking with Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy during the 2000s) but also has ties to the 3-4. He began in the NFL working under Rob Ryan with the Browns and then Dallas.

 

Here is an article about Peetz from last year. I think someone posted this in another thread too. .

Eberflus was also the passing game coordinator for the Cowboys defense which sounds appealing. We have a solid start on our run defense but their definitely needs to be a focus on pass defense in this pass heavy league.

Our LB core is the weakest link on this team IMO. He will have his work cut out for him. Some of it will have to be talent acquisition, but coaching will be important too...

I just read an article concerning the Cowboys defensive schemes where it stipulates that Rod Marinelli modeled his 4-3 scheme after the Seahawks. So it's not a surprise that he will be the DC as the Seattle connection is strong in our front office and they know how to draft the players that fit that scheme!

Peetz looks like a real bright young guy.  I don’t know what to make of Carr having a bad year though.  I know they had Oline problems.   

 

Heard nothing but good things about Matt.  Switching to a 4-3 isn’t that big a deal as far as personnel.   We’re in a sub package, 4-2-5 more than a 3-4 anyway.

The proof is in the pudding, when the results pour in a year or two from now. 

 

Safe to say, winning a division is only the first step expected by Colts fans, yeah we can be a spoiled bunch. :)

If he is I guess it’s not a bad thing. He can make all the throws.

I can't give you any real substantive reason, but I'm not loving that OC choice and on a completely irrelevant level, he looks like a guy that I would not get along with..

If we move to a 4-3, we really have to consider the possibility that we may trade back and try to get Roquon Smith.  His ability to read and react looked so natural and fluid.

Lol!  Well, besides the irrelevant part, I’m sort of with you.  I’m trying to find out more about him.

 

He advanced rapidly in his career and seems to be a really bright guy.  He obviously didn’t bowl anyone over as a QB coach.  At the end of the season there were some suggestions that he wasn’t qualified for the job.  That’s probably fans blaming someone for the Raiders failure to meet expectations.

People on this board have been belittling Brady for being nothing more than a "system QB".  I never understood the rationale.

Haha, did you read the linked article?  This guy is extremely humble and missed his opportunity to play to be at the side of his dying brother.  What do you not like about that?

He should get Ken Norton Jr to be the LB coach. Ken was the LB coach in Seattle years ago. He helped Bobby Wagner become an All-Pro.

Norton Jr. is the new DC of the Seahawks.

You can’t belittle 6 rings. If it’s what you need to do to win, do it. Luck would still make those crazy plays too, just have a bit more of a gameplan and more fluid offense.

Read? Me? Pfff..

 

And he's a goodie two shoes (what's the origin of this phrase?- don't think I'm not googling this..)? Now I really don't like him! (I'm kidding).

 

 

The big upside of McDaniels coming here is his offense and play calling. This guy likely won't be a highly involved OC would be my guess.

Eberflus has extensive experience in both 3-4 and 4-3 schemes. I expect we will have a healthy dose of both looks

Not belittling Brady but he threw for over 300 yds Saturday and I think over 200 yards were yards after the catch (yac). Soon much of that is scheme.

I know our WR coach has interviewed with the Cowboys but I haven't seen anything about him being hired.  I'm hoping he stays with us.  I'm really looking forward to seeing who he brings in to be our OL coach.  It's going to be an important  position hire IMO.

Well, yeah..if McDaniels is calling the plays while this guy learns, I'm all about that.

Eberflus is 100% the new DC. Funny, Jeremy Stevenson on Twitter showed his wife’s new Facebook profile, and it has the Colts horseshoe added to it, with her talking openly about moving to Indianapolis in the comments.

I just visited her profile, unless she was hacked which seems totally unlikely this seems locked in.

Makes me think the Josh-to-Colts rumors are true.  Now just have to wait for the Pats to finish their season.

Perhaps she was hacked as it just changed back to his pic in headset.  Also the update and pics either got deleted or went private.

Can't wait to see how Josh uses some of our personnel. I can totally see Chester Rogers in Danny Amendolas role. I can definitely see him making great use of Mack. He will probably get used a lot like what we saw Saturday night or much in the same way Mcdaniels used Knowshon Moreno in Denver. Definitely want to see what he does with Swoope and Doyle.

Unless the new coaching staff wants em, they'll prolly be fired.
