Colts a Pawn for McDaniels?

Recommended Posts

I'm so mad about what McDaniels did, I had trouble sleeping last night. I wouldn't doubt he used the Colts as a pawn. Going through the steps of hiring staff, etc. only to coax NE to make him an offer (whatever it might be).

I doubt it. We should all quit obsessing over him.  He’s a flea.

 

Kraft will get what he paid for in the end.  I have a feeling that in four years they’ll be drafting in the top 5 with a coach that isn’t on their staff right now.

All reports suggest he was at Patriots packing his office when he got into a conversation with the Kraft's and BB that changed his mind.  It has been widely reported he will be on less money than if he went to Colts, so can only have been a future HC position there.

 

I think people are looking for something here to explain this unreal situation, but the simplest answer is usually the correct one.

 

McDaniels took the job and told Ballard he was joining then, like the coward he is, backed out at the last minute leaving everyone high and dry and his reputation in tatters.

I don't care so much that McDaniels won't be the HC, I always thought he was a jerk, so good riddance. I'm steaming about the fact the Colts passed up other possible HC candidates, hired staff for McDaniels, etc. No obsession over him personally, but concern over the mess in the wake of his shenanigans.

    • The Colts have had their fair share of injuries the past few seasons.   Many of these players were either expected to have good/great years, or contribute much more than they did, because of their season being cut short. If there was a single player on the roster right now, whom has had injuries in the past 3 seasons, that you could put imaginary 'bubble wrap' around to guarantee they don't get injured this season, who would it be?   Mine = Kemoko Turay. There are many players i'd want to have a healthy season, Hilton/Campbell/Hooker/ect. But to me, I truly believe if Turay had not had that season ending injury last year, he could have seriously broken out. I am praying for a healthy season for him, because having him on all the passing downs for the season with the rest of the talent we have on the front 7, I think he could have a massive season. He was leading the NFL last season in QB pressures per snap, before he was hurt. Not to mention that he was held so many times, and it was not called.  I mean blatant holding.  Because he is a real issue for O-linemen.  Just so fast, with great bend, and his hand/arm work is stellar since he's been working with Mathis. A full healthy season, I could easily see him getting 10+ sacks.
    • they cant just go from waiver claim to practice squad on another team, he would have to be on their roster a while before they can do that.
    • It will be interesting to see how Watson does without Hopkins. If they won the division again that would show me a lot. Losing Hopkins is a huge blow.
    • That's fair. Watson is mostly due to age, but I think he's finally good enough to lead them to the playoffs. However, they will decline soon with some contracts running out. I see Luck as 32 in football years because I believe he'd be rusty for a year. Just a guess though. I would take Watson too because I feel he's non injury-prone, and that's good for a long-term answer at QB. I would take Luck back in a heartbeat though as long as we didn't have to pay him anything if he retired again.
