For Belichick, a guy who is quite mature and not worried about this kind of stuff, this seems unusually petty

 

He has no soul. You’re talking about a guy who cut a player right before the Super Bowl after he flew his family in for the game.

Planned sabotage of an NFL franchise's HC search is not going to go over well with the other 31 teams.  

  

I'd be surprised if there isn't yet another investigation of the patriots. 

Was there a contract with the Colts or not?  Reports today said the Colts hired him and now this.  If there was no contract than why did the Colts announce the hire?  If there was a contract a law suite might be imminent.  But in my opinion it's not worth pursuing this scumbag.  Chalk it up as a lesson learned.  We set ourselves up to get screwed over by wallowing in the mud with these scums.

Ok Ballard...get back to work.  Who are some of the other candidates that you have lined up.  We still have a boat load of cap space and the #3 pick in the draft.  Luck is still standing in the wings.  Same building blocks are still in place to build a winner.

I agree....this is a career defining moment for Chris Ballard. Crap happens....this is his moment to step up and define himself as our GM. The next move he makes might very well determine many many years for the Colts. We can’t take a step back...does he let us spiral to the Cleveland’s of the league or suck it up...hire a great coach and let this be a rallying cry for us. All eyes are on you CB!

I'm ecstatic he's not our next HC.    

I'm angry that they set us back months in the search for a HC.

Not exactly.  They knew they were going to have Josh take over.  They didn't keep Josh just for revenge, but because they want him to take over. 

 

But the way it played out was intentional.

I always wanted Toub and I still do. And just because someone wasn't a "first choice" doesn't mean he is a bad choice. This isn't marriage. It's not like we are in a relationship with these guys. 

 

Yeah, it hurts to see this, but good riddance to mcdicks. He deserves NE and they him.

You're confident that Ballard has a plan? 

 

Are you serious!

 

You mean like the plan he had to hire a worthless coach that totally embarrassed him and the Colts?

 

Ballard is going to take a big hit form this as he should. 

 

I think you're so upset you're not thinking clearly.

 

At all.

 

This is NOT on Chris Ballard.

Great Post!!              :thmup:

 

I think this is a very, VERY strong point.

 

If I'm Chris Ballard,  I'm on the phone with the NFL and telling them the Pats can keep McDaniels. 

 

And we'll be happy to take their FIRST ROUND PICKS THE NEXT TWO YEARS!!   Period.       :colts:

 

But Ballard mended the relationship with New England. Either that or he’s really gullible.

He's not one for trash talk and this kind of pettiness.  He's always just focused on his team.  He couldn't care less about anything else

I don't

.

And here's why....

 

McDaniels and Ballard have the same agent.

 

I don't think McDaniels deliberately screws Ballard since they have the same agent.

 

Now....    do I think Kraft knew that McDaniels would love to be the next coach of the Pats and played this out to the last second deliberately?     Sure.      That could be.     But when you're preparing for a SB,  it's not hard to believe that BB was not intersted in talking about his future or talking with Kraft about McDaneils and would simply say,  let's talk about it after the game.

 

But that puts the stink on Kraft and BB and much less so on McDaneils in terms of thing being "deliberate."

 

All that said.....    this sucks for the Colts.     I'm not sure if Ballard hires a one-year temporary HC,  or tries to hire Toub and hope he works out for the best......

 

 

I don't think Ballard's agent is all that pivotal for either of them at this point. Ballard has reached the pinnacle of his profession, and if he needs another agent for his extension negotiations, he can easily find one.

 

And McDaniels now only has New England to worry about, because no other team will ever touch him, I don't think. 

 

As for whatever agreement they worked out in New England, they could have done that weeks ago. As soon as things started getting close with the Colts, the Pats could have made their offer to McDaniels, and he could have withdrawn from consideration. 

 

They milked this to the max, and they absolutely did not have to. It has the feel of being deliberate, top to bottom. Nothing anyone can ever prove, and it's a little confirmation bias on my part because I've been worried about this happening, but something hasn't felt right all along. This is why.

If there was a signed contract, then NE will lose some picks.  

Habitual cheaters never change.

I agree with those saying it was intentional. Bill Kraft brings up deflategate all the time, its obvious they are still sore about it.

 

McDaniels eventually gets Belichicks job plus screws the Colts at the same time.

If I’m Irsay right now I spare no expense...I pay whatever and do whatever to hire the greatest coach ever to get back at the Pats....like pay to summon the ghost of Vince Lombardi or whatever to turn this around.

Well, they don't really have a QB.  They'll need to find one.

Here's my thought: I'd imagine he was signed with us. After all, we were having a press conference TOMORROW! How could we not have him signed, yet announce something like that?

First round pick, come to us!

Months?  Try years. We will definitely have to settle for a coach now. Pagano’s available.

I doubt there is a contract. We made the announcement after a verbal agreement, the deal was likely to be signed tomorrow. 

 

Otherwise the Patriots would have played it slow and tried to get a deal worked out for compensation before this blindsiding news. 

 

This ives Irsay and Ballard cause to raise the price. Trying to work out a deal without them being * off would have been much easier.

If he signed the contract (he must have since Colts announced him as the new coach) Colts should get something out of it.

He did sign the contract we can go after him and NE we can get some much out of it because he was under contract including draft picks who knows

I doubt there was an actual contract that was signed.

 

But what I think WAS signed is what is called a "Letter or understanding."

 

Sort of a simplified contract.     BUT....     I think he can have the effect of a contract.

 

So,  I think the Colts are clearly entitled to HUGE compensation.

 

We got screwed.      We are clearly a damaged party.      We deserve compensation. 

 

In the NFL,  over this type of issue,   that means DRAFT PICKS!     And I'd say multiple.

I think it's revenge for Deflategate, and just a chance to make the Colts look bad and screw up their offseason. Job well done, obviously.

 

And I know no one will believe me, but Belichick with the Jets has been in the back of my mind all along... If we get a first rounder from them like the Jets did, it will kind of be worth it, but I doubt that happens.

I Believe you because I was thinking the same thing

Yeah...I don't know about some others but I'm fired up right now!  We will rally and we will build a winner with integrity. I get the feeling that you don't want to * Ballard off.

I'd wager it's at least partially if not totally deflategate related.. Which is fascinating, since it was the Patriots/Dorito Doink/The Deflator/Brady breaking the rules, not the Colts. 

 

What a miserable bunch. I really genuinely hate that team. All of these media types trying to suggest somehow I'm small minded for not enjoying their crap.. 

 

So glad the lost that game Sunday. 

Exactly.. ALL the media loves them "enjoy this excellence and greatest you're wistnessing" it's a bunch of crap. Thank you Nick Foles... The Patriots lost to the backup... Not even the real guy...

It wasn't similar situation, BB with the Jets and McD and us. Except BB and McD screwed us and the Jets.

 

It's similar in every way that matters -- he agreed to take the job, then backed out at the last minute.

You guys have to stop giving Ballard passes for crap. He should have never chosen a dirty coach from the Patriots to begin with.

    • https://nflcommunications.com/Pages/NFL-Network-Analyst-Daniel-Jeremiah-2020-NFL-Scouting-Combine-Conference-Call----Transcript-and-Audio.aspx   Thought some people might enjoy it.    I am just starting to listen, no idea if it will be good but if there is something interesting Colts related or QB related, etc. I will post later in the thread.    -QBs for him - tons of ability in this group but also some question marks.  -WRs and CBs are deep in this draft. Phenomenal WR class. RB class is good too.  -mentions Colts as potential QB spot among Bengals, Dolphins, Chargers, Panthers, Raiders, Colts, Bucs... -Jake Fromm - very impressive in person, very mature, engaging, you can see why he won over the locker room. The concern - arm-strength - ball dies on some throws -some teams think Andrew Thomas might be RT -Adam Trautman, Harrison Bryant and Cole Kmet are his top 3 TEs. Brycen Hopkins - 4th-5th round grade, developmental prospect, too many drops and needs to be better blocking -He seems to like Austin Jackson much better than most people I've read. Says he might jump up boards after the combine.  -teams are all over the map with Jacob Eason. One team Jeremiah has heard from has him as their QB2.  Big arm, bad habbits - trying to wheel out and turns his back to the defense when pressured. Needs to be a bit more of a playmaker instead of just being pure thrower. Needs to create some plays and extend some plays. R1 or R2.  -Derrick Brown - same grade as Chase Young... closest thing to Ndamukong Suh - Kevin Bowen question "How would you handle the QB dilemma for the Colts with #13 and the 2 2nd round picks?" - DJ answer: "I would start by signing Philip Rivers and I would try to make a run at it in the next couple of years because I think they are pretty close. I think Rivers will come in and give them an upgrade. And then you are picking at 13... and I know there is so much depth at WR, but if I'm the Colts I would be awfully tempted and see a Jerry Jeudy, Ceedee Lamb, Henry Ruggs... if one of those 3 guys were there I think I'd go and pull the trigger right there. Now you change your offense completely - you have a good OLine, you pair what you have outside with one of those 3 receivers and Phillip Rivers, I think you will have the chance to be a really fun offense to watch. Now you go second round and you have other directions you can go... at that point if there is a QB you like... a developmental QB... you can go that route or you can just go DT that has some real twitch and some upside that can rush. Neville Gallimore from Oklahoma would make some sense there, he has some twitch and real pass rush ability. Jordan Elliot from Missouri  is another name that can come into the mix, another guy that can rush inside. They are in a great spot, I'm just curious to see what they do with the QB position first and foremost. If they decide to stick with JB and want to go towards the draft... at that point and time Jordan Love ... I don't think he's ready to play right away, but man.... that is a huge upside pick. You got a chance to let him develop and have a huge payoff. 
    • If we end up with the same bad QB play this year with the future not being drafted this year yes he will be on the hot seat. If Jacoby is the starter and doesn’t improve but we have the future we draft in April on the team he won’t be on the hot seat. 
    • What's being implied here? Backlash from the media? 
    • They send out surveys and I’ve expressed on them. I don’t know how much control the team has over how the city controls the traffic. They are trying to protect the drunk pedestrians. In the past I’ve had a drunk pedestrian walk into my car!  What they’ve done seems like overkill now. 
    • Are you sure about that?  Last year they were having trouble selling them. I have 5 seats but they are not on the same row. I have 3 on one row and 2 directly in front of those. The guy who owned the seats next to me told me he wasn’t renewing his seats if I wanted them. The usher in my section also told me that many in his section weren’t renewing.   I called after invoices went out last year and his seats we’re still open. I wanted to take 3 of his 4 seats but they wouldn’t let me because they didn’t want to leave the 1 seat. Kind of ticked me off but I get it I guess. There were numerous club seat tickets for sale by the team at face value at every game last year which means no one owned those seats.
