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.

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.

    • Simmons reminds me of Kam Chancellor. Maybe a little Deon Bucannon also. Both were LB/SS and were mismatches for opposing offenses. Being that big and athletic they have range in coverage, but can lower the boom against the run. 
    • Here are all his interceptions on the year.    I can categorize them in several categories: -poor mechanics/footwork leading to underthrows(the first one in the video is example of that here, as well the one against LSU - Stingley, there are also several opposite hash throws where he relies too much on his armstrength and the ball floats on him). This is what Frank and the rest of the coaching staff are for and why I don't expect him to start right away - he needs to clean up his footwork  -not seeing dropping defenders down the middle... this just needs to be improved, Luck had some of those too... IMO this is his biggest problem, his decisionmaking/not seeing defenders dropping in coverage. He makes some "wth were you thinking" throws? I commented on several of those when they were happening in old posts here you can search for ... he just has some of those that I get back to again and again and again and I still cannot figure out what he saw to make him make that throw and how he didn't see the defender. His film is littered with this types of throws, not just those interceptions, he would have one of those almost every game. This to me is the second reason he needs to sit and learn. -receivers fault/bad luck(last one in the bowl game and 2 of the Wyoming tipped balls, last BYU throw where he gets hit as he throws it, etc.) -forcing it(a couple of the LSU INTs are good examples + one of the BYU ones + several others)   -opposite hash to the sideline throws - I cannot be completely certain here about the culprit, but he has a few of those. On some of those he seems to be trusting his arm too much/underrating the defender's ability. But on others they are quick reads that the defenders seem to undercut and be waiting on. No idea why. Maybe he has a tell of some sort/staring the receiver? Look at the first Wake Forest INT(0:13), you can see better hint at what might be wrong at 3:40, he makes very similar throw/INT and it gets pick-6ed again. It seems like this is a thing they run a lot, and it also seems like he's staring his receiver down - there is no attempt to disguise what's happening, he immediately flips his hips and gets ready to make the throw and the defender just undercuts it... his receivers don't help coming back to the ball either...    If I have to summarize - IMO the biggest issues with him are - 1. poor mechanics/footwork on some throws and over-reliance on his arm, 2. not seeing dropping LBs into coverage... this HAS TO improve, 3. staring down his receiver   I want to point out that the last one happens a lot on plays that are supposed to be quick hits. He does that one on slants too. To me this is the easiest one to fix and takes just a bit more discipline and coaching because it seems to be an issue mainly when he knows he has to make that specific throw and it needs to be a quick throw. Otherwise there are many cases where you can see him scanning the field, making progression reads, moving/holding safeties with his eyes. I do NOT think his staring down receivers is the same type of staring down that Brissett does for example. 
    • He's arguably the GOAT now. IMO only Peyton and Montana are the other 2 in that discussion for many reasons. Perhaps Unitas is in that discussion as well but he played when football was way different? 
    • Both are amazing RBs. I think Etienne is a little better because of the amount of broken tackles, but either way, the football team that drafts Etienne or Dobbins becomes a better football team just by adding them. It may not be a question of who is #1 or #2, but this guy is 1A & that guy is 1B. 
    • If he does come here, and then helps us win the superbowl, would you consider him the GOAT?
