*Article* Patriots on Josh McDaniels: Smart. Innovative. Forward-thinking.


Recommended Posts

Some interesting quotes in here:

 

“Man, he’s so smart,” said Phillip Dorsett, the former Colts first-round pick who was traded to New England in September. “To me, he’s like an offensive genius.”

 

“The game plan every week is very, very well thought out,” offensive tackle LaAdrian Waddle said. “Everything is laid out perfectly for you.”

 

“There’s a high standard,” White said. “And you’ve got to do it in practice. If you don’t do it in practice, you’re probably not going to be out there on gameday.”


Getting more and more excited about this hire.

Lol! I'm just being dumb....great article! 

 

That'll be doyel's next angle. 

 

"An offensive genius who took Dwayne Allen and Phillip Dorsett and did less with them than we did here. Color me impressed!"

Can they just freakin lose period!!  HA!  

Ha yeah definitely, I normally agree 100%, but now I'm conflicted, at least with NE facing Jax this weekend, if McDaniels can't effectively gameplan for Jax in the AFC game, what's that say about gameplanning regularly for a division opponent. But then again, I've heard a wise man say we learn more from our mistakes, so, I guess go Jax!!!

 

Ha, anyways its been a min. @BrentMc11 hope all is well...

After reading about him, his high expectations, and his competitive spirit, I can see where his downfall could (could!!) be coming to Indy and not having success his first year or two. 

 

With that said, I’m really excited for the Colts to hire him and watch him work with our young guys. McDaniels and Ballard could be the winning combination.

Hey Buck....I have been on the IR for about a year.  I missed all of the great people on the Colts Forum.  I was physically and mentally unable to remember things or debate.  I will hopefully be back.  I had heart surgery 3 days ago.  I was not getting enough O2 to my brain.  I also had a severe wound from passing out while in afib.  Mental is back....3 months for the IR to end. :)

 

See I still rumble and bumble a little.  :)  (I hate the Patriots and the Jags.  HAHA!)

So he is basically Lindy Infante revisted.  Head Coach retread and OC genius.  That didn't work out well for us either!

 

(This is somewhat tongue in cheek/devils advocate, but i be on to something.  or i may be on something)

Wait, 

 

So Holder went down to NE to do an article on McDaniels, and never talked to McDaniels directly.

Holder is not a football guy.  It appears he wastes a lot of dollars just to go to NE and slam down Lobster and drink with his fellow journalists.  I think he used a cheat sheet.....:bossy:

Hey Brent glad you are doing better, I was wondering where you have been. I don't like either team as well. I hope Minnesota wins the SB.

Don't know if you are joking or not. But you do realize that the chances of getting McDaniels to talk about his future when they are in the middle of a potential Super Bowl run is next to nothing? Not to mention, he is a PATRIOT under BB which makes it even more likely. The article mentioned how it was hard to get players to talk about it, let alone McDaniels....

Sorry to hear about your health concerns,  I have a few of my own and I know how draining it can be.  Just gotta fight man.  Sounds like your getting up though and will be ready for round 2!   I don't know you but I'm wishing you a fast and total recovery!

Nice to see the return of my favorite ole LB. Missed ya Brent! I hope you, RG, the kids, & your dogs are all thriving buddy. 

 

I know I'm tired of the Pats winning so much hardware. It's not that that team isn't exceptionally coached & all. I just wanna see the Vikings win it all in their own backyard. That would be a okay to me. 

 

I like the Eagles too. But, I'd like to see the Eagles win it all when QB Carson Wentz is healthy all yr long provided INDY isn't in the Playoff hunt down the road of course.

As far as the McDaniels article is concerned, I'm a firm believer in giving Josh another shot at coaching. As long as he's not running the video department at LOS, I'm cool with it.

 

Walk away from the camera Josh & remember, you're not Bill Belichick & this city will embrace you with a clean slate. You are gifted on offense.

 

Just stick with what you know & nobody's getting fired early. Kapeesh. Good.

Wow, that really puts things in their proper perspective.  So glad you’re back man!

 

Best wishes!

Well, Brady is injured. If Hoyer plays, there's a good chance they lose.

 

Wow, if Hoyer has to play for Brady...

 

Who, if anybody, at the beginning of the season could imagine that the final 4 QB's squaring off for the Super Bowl in 2017 would be -

 

Case Keenum

Blake Bortles

Nick Foles

Brian Hoyer (if Brady can't go, but I bet he does)

 

No Rodgers, No Eli, No Rivers, No Brees, No Ryan, No Big Ben, No Wilson, No Stafford... No Cousins... No...  {keep entering QB names here}

    • Kerrigan was upset that he took a backup role with WFT and wanted to be an every down player.  Kerrigan would be a great addition to our Colts and seemed to be very comparable in terms with Houston if not better imo.  Yes Kerrigan is from Indiana and I have been hoping we signed Kerrigan in FA for a while now.  We clearly need proven depth at DE and Kerrigan will provide that.  Right now we have Paye and Muhammad as the clear starters and outside of a healthy Turay I can't trust Bangou and we all know Dayo will be a scratch most of the season.
    • Think the Colts bottom line lacks proven depth at our Edges to an extent.  I do think that Paye, Buckner, Stewart, and Muhammad will be the starters and Turay when healthy flashed real potential in rotations.  After that we don't have proven rotational guys on the edges and Ben is going to be a FA in 2023, assuming we let him go, plus Turay will be a FA next off-season.  It makes sense for the Colts to beef up their DL since we failed to do so in the past few off-seasons and appears we didn't draft that well either.    Depending on how well Wentz plays and which round we start off our draft I wouldn't be surprised if the Colts targeted another top DE.  My early draft projections favorites for DE are Myjai Sanders (Cincinnati), Aidan Hutchinson (Michigan) and George Karlaftis (Purdue).  If we had to sign one FA DE next season I would consider Uchenna Nwosu (Chargers).
    • As previously stated I think it's primarily money now.  He will not play as many snaps as Houston did last year due to Paye and Turay getting back to health.  I think the money is earmarked for Fisher now.
    • Again hindsight is 20:20 but essentially that is what the difference amounts to.   I truly believe it comes down to how folks evaluate Fields and Wentz.    If someone loves Fields then that's the way it should go especially w his cheaper rookie contract.   If someone believes Wentz can be a top-15 QB again (not even the MVP 2017 version but just the Top-15 2018-2019 version) then a lot of times the idea of giving up a potential top-notch pass rusher along w another pick is hard to stomach.   I actually have some faith in Wentz so I am ok with what we did. Fields is awfully enticing though. I hope he works out well for Chicago and that more importantly Chicago works out well for him.    
    • I was for Wentz early, one of the first here. And knew if Eagles were foolishly getting rid of him, he would be more easily acquired than a Fields,Wilson etc... I think we lucked into getting  Wentz and he will be a good QB for us.   But I didn't think Fields, my favorite QB draftee would fall to 11.. and I would have been thrilled & excited if we moved up to get Fields.   It is what it is and be happy we have Wentz and not Brissett, Dalton, etc...
