it is all part of the conspiracy by Bob Kraft, Hoodie, The GPOAT and the McDaniels.  Hire coaches who suck to get back at the colts for deflategate.  :peek:

He can't be any worse than Philbin.

 

Right? 

Where as I get the humor, Philbin was not terrible like many would try and say.  He does have a very complex scheme for the line but he also had to deal with bad talent.  AC was the only consistent with the line.  Kelly was hurt, Mewhort was hurt, projects all over the right side.

I doubt we do things schematically and strategically the same way they did in New England.

Well he has some potent pieces to coach up this time.

 

Two All-American linemen in the draft this year, plus Kelly coming back.

 

Can't wait to see them just manhandle people at the line of scrimmage.

Disagree. While he didn't have much talent to work with, I don't think he got anything more out of the players he did have. 

 

He also was the one who told Ballard to draft Zach Banner, so there's that.

Also can't wait for them to start neutralizing the blitzers coming right up the middle every game.

 

I can't wait for then to start blocking the man across from them.

For example I don't think Reich is going to allow Deguglielmo to rotate O linemen in and out in waves like they do on the defensive line for example.   I doubt Reich wants that done.  That in itself to me is something that could cause protection issues.  Continuity is what is needed on the OL.  Same group of guys playing together.   I doubt he brings that from NE to Indy.

Hey you got me on the Zach Banner thing lol.  I do remember that.

 

As bad as some players looked I will say he did have some minor successes.  Good was looking decent at RT before injury.  Haeg has held his own at RT for the most part.

There is something to be said for having above average to superior talent. Guys like Kelly & Nelson as you say sb2i. 

 

I know there's the old adage that the best coordinators or coaches can get the most out of mediocre talent, but let's be honest, you're only as good as the caliber of the students you teach. I agree with you. We finally have a GM who knows that protecting Luck is our only hope to longterm success. 

 

People like to believe that the best mentors can carry their pupils or athletes to amazing heights based on technique alone, but the truth is, the ability to process a ton of information quickly coupled with good coaching usually means that a team's about to take a major leap forward. 

 

I don't care what industry a person is in: Law, music, construction, demolition, or coaching. You are only as good as the people who surround you & the quality of the clay you get to mold. Yeah, Nelson is gonna be fascinating to watch.

LOL! If this article was supposed to inspire our fanbase or at least put our fears at bay, it sure didn't achieve that. Man, talk about depressing. 

 

I remember that 2013 AFC Championship Game vs the Broncos. Brady was running for his life & his pocket was atrocious. And to think that this nightmare OL might be coming to INDY? Uh oh...Say it ain't so nl63. 

 

I'll give Dave a chance, but it's a very short leash.

Well said Krunk. When I heard about this crazy notion of rotating linemen, I was like dear God no! This is a sick joke right? Pass rushers can be rotated as a game progresses. Guys keeping Luck upright--Not so much. LOL! 

 

Reminds me of when Chip Kelly was coaching the Eagles & he had this insane idea of making his linemen have accelerated snaps etc. By the 3rd quarter, all his big dogs up front were exhausted & completely spent.

Better frisk him for cameras and make him carry his belongings in a clear bag.  Lets just say if a playbook goesmissing, we know where to look.

just sayin'.

Is it confirmed that he told Ballard to draft Banner? It could be the other way around. Philbin could have been the one to tell Ballard to cut Banner. I honestly don't have a clue as to either scenario.

Not to mention, they have kept Brady upright enough to be a legitimate MVP candidate at 40+ years old.

Yes, that's the scenario that has been widely accepted.

    • No doubt....   Butler makes plenty of NFL-level catches.   I've seen several of his tapes and they're full of them.   That's why I fell in love with him.   But those are his high-lite tapes.    I'd love someone to put together a montage of his drops.   Let's see the worst of him.     Zierlein made reference of "drop after drop after drop."     But I had no idea it was at 16%.   Yikes!   I know Ballard and Reich aren't afraid of some drops....   but at some point,  one would think they would no longer be acceptable?    
    • Goodness graciouis....   this poster has no idea that he contridicted himself between the first sentence and the last sentence.   First,  the concept of non-elite corners comes from Ballard.   It's just the posters who are repeating it over and over to those who continue to want to spend a first round pick on one.   And then,  you note in your last sentence that good zone corners can be found in later rounds.   Thanks for proving Ballard's point....   even though that was never your intention.    
    • Yeah... I'm on the record that I think drops are overrated by fans but 16%(if true) is truly worrying stat. I honestly haven't seen his hands being a problem on tape. He had some concentration drops, but he does well attacking the football, high pointing it, catching it away from his body. 16% though... wow! I guess I have to rewatch his games. That's like every 6th pass should be a drop.    About Mitchell... I have no idea how to evaluate those things, that's why I'm resigning myself to just watching the tape and leaving the intel to the people with the resources.    edit: just watched his Texas tape again:     He has one drop at 5:55, but just look at how many great NFL-type catches he had before that. I will keep watching other film, but so far I still think the playmaking ability is great and if I had to have 1 drop every game like this one for performances like this, I'm OK with it. And this is not even a particularly excellent game for him. It's run of the mill 99 yard game where his QB was under pressure and running for his life for most of it. 
    • Lol the o ly thing worse than being hated by the media is being loved by the media. 
    • “CoCorners,,People need to stop preaching this deal about how a 4-3 zone defense doesn’t need elite corners like it’s the gospel. I hear the same narratives over and over again. “good zone corners can be found in the middle rounds, our old 4-3  never had elite corners
