McDaniels rejects Colts.

How do you even do this this is literally career suicide 

 

??????

 

Odds are he already has IN WRITING an agreement to follow Belichick as the next Patriots HC,  whenever BB retires.

 

He may be hugely unpopular with the other 31 teams,  but he only needs to be popular with one.    The Pats.

 

There's no way he does this without it being in writing.

If this is true then it has to mean B.B. is retiring now or after next year, Luck is hurt worse than was told to him, or he’s a colossal DB.

 

Who knows.

 

Yeah I’m thinking it’s either one of those, which is not good if Luck is done.

I did not see this coming. It is career suicide for him. NE or bust.

 

Forget Irsay and Ballard, think about all the other coaches he hung out to dry, you think the Colts are the only fanbase unhappy with him, I don't think so.

 

Exactly. What happens to the assistants that effectively handed in their resignations? How many of those teams have already looked for their replacements?

 

Obviously, Kraft and company have promised him the NE job. Good for him, I guess, because it's the only job available to him after this.

I cannot wait until the Patriots start declining fast. I am watching every ****ing Patriots game to see the mighty dynasty fall apart into a thousand useless pieces and become a disgrace to the league. I hope their players riot and Josh is cast away like Romeo.

 

Unbelievable.

You're going to give them ratings?  

I haven't watched a patriots game since 2009.

Looks like Kraft gave JM a raise and outbid the Colts.

 

Of course he did, as i said Sunday night Kraft gets great enjoyment to sticking it to the Colts.

Yet for some reason Ballard still wanted him. 

Yep.

The NFL needs to change how they handle coaching opportunities when teams are in the playoffs.   Making the worst teams wait the longest to sign the top coordinators is ridiculous when those are the very teams that generally need the most help.

 

And, as B.B. did the Jets, so McDaniels does the Colts.   Classless.   Like the succession plan couldn’t have been discussed and settled before dragging the Colts through the mud?

Just heard this on the radio on WEEI.   Looks like Josh handed in his version of the BB napkin.  I am sorry for you guys, but you got plenty of time to get another coach in line. 

 

Wow, what a circus that last few days.  They stated that the Krafts sweetened the contract with Josh, perhaps Josh may be the next in line for the head coach. 

 

  

After this move I feel sorry for Pat Fans too

i am guessing that he plans to stay for good, one can not get this late in the process then pull back.  Who knows maybe he got sentimental after the SB loss, but it looks like a coaching in waiting in NE.  Time will tell.

All I can say is that if they wanted to keep him, they had a lot of options other than this one.  So, this feels intentional. If so, then we're better off

Chris Ballard now knows why this franchise and it's fan base hates the Patriots.  Hard lesson for him to learn.  Stop trying to make nice with these scumbags Ballard!  We are the friggin Colts.  We don't need that Patriots stink over here.  Let's gooooooo!

I was anti-mcdaniels since the get go.  

I'd rather lose than have that guy as a coach.  

Plus I think he makes for a bad HC.

No thanks. If you throw enough crap against the wall, sooner or later some is going to stick.

The only silver lining here is the “I never wanted him anyways” argument, which isn’t exactly valid.

I’m dumbfounded. So the colts wasted weeks on this punk thinking he was coming here. Feb 6th and they have to start search over. Man I bet Ballard is lit right now.

Told you all the last few days I had bad vibes on this jerk. We got lucky, feel fortunate. We escaped becoming even worse long term.

 

My female intuition struck again.

 

Pagano wasn't a great coach, but he's a good good man. McDaniels isn't worth all the hype he been getting.

And his side piece while his wife is battling cancer.  

Almost puked when I saw Jeff Saturday hugging him during the lockout.

Yes it was intentional.  This was planned for quite a while.

I’m going to say this now...no Patriot fans better ever expect any quarter ever from Colts fans here now. Don’t get me wrong I’m a good guy and a fair judge of sports etc but the fan in me will find it very hard to stand up for the Pats after this. If McDaniels has worked out here it almost could have been a healing between us...now...it will never ever go away. This is some straight up soap opera stuff here. The reason I’m saying that is that a team with some class would tell McD to honor his word and his commitment and not hire him back or retain him. They are involved in this too now. If I’m Belichick I say son...you made your bed now lie in it. Your word is your honor...you ain’t coming back. Find another team to work with.

Kraft isn't giving him just a raise.....

 

He's giving him the Pats HC job when BB retires.

 

There's no way McDaniels does this move with a guarantee --- in writing --- that he's the Pats next head coach.

I must be female too.  Nothing felt right about the delays and the lead up to this.  I'm not surprised actually.

    • Very tough leaving Jeudy off this list.... but here are my Top 5....   Chase Young  Joe Burrow Derrick Brown  Jeff Okudah Isaiah Simmons
    • Would be awesome if the Colts had an amazing pass offense next year and Ebron can sit there and regret quitting because we all know he did. 
    • Could be Aaron Rodgers... Let's try an "A"
    • I mean... we were 7-9. I get that we have high expectations, but sometimes you see teams have to be bottom feeders for several years before they can start sniffing sustained success (see: the 49ers). If we imagine that we'd lost Luck at the start of the Ballard era I imagine we'd be looking at our team in a much different light. We probably would not have reached the playoffs any of those years.    Ballard inherited a bad, aging roster from Grigson and I felt right away this would be a 3 year project minimum before we were competitive. Well it only took two years and going into that year 3 we looked so promising. Then BAM Luck retires.    Luck's impact on this team is enough that it certainly changes our team's outlook when he's gone. A 3 year rebuild turns into what? 5? And honestly? That's where I think we are. We were a few missed kicks, late interceptions away from the post season this year already. With the cap we have, and the draft stock we carry, as long as we can improve our QB situation, the rest of our roster is primed to continue to grow for a couple more years before we really have to start worrying about cap.    So with that said... please don't retire Anthony Constonso!  My heart may not be able to handle the setback.
    • For me the main thing I can't get over with Fromm is not the arm strength althought I think you can see it in certain situations. The main things I dislike and I think will limit him in the league are: -pocket presence - it's the worst from anybody in this class. It's horrible. He is statuesque in the pocket and has no feel or vision or ability to even try to avoid rusher unless it's the most obvious of situations, he doesn't step into the pocket, he doesn't sidestep rusher...he would just stay in there and try to deliver the ball from the platform he's initially dropped to.  -inability to playmake - this ties into the pocket presence and armstrenght weaknesses too. Very little ability to make plays out of structure. If the pocket breaks, he's usually done, doesn't escape collapsing pockets and if it's one of the obvious cases where he actually sees it he doesn't have the armstrenght to make plays on the run and off platform.   I love a lot of the other things about him(leadership, accuracy on short to intermediate throws, anticipation, reading the field, smarts and command of the offense at the LOS, adjustments), but in today's NFL when defensive linemen have such athletic freaks and OLines are struggling to protect the QBs, IMO having the ability to navigate the pocket when it's workable or to leave it and make plays out of it when it's collapsing is very important. My worry is that those are fatal weaknesses that will manifest themselves in him not being able to show off his best attributes simply because in the NFL nobody is working with prestine pockets.
