Lets not get carried away…...I like Chuck..

….but the '85 Bears put QBs on IR

 

Let Mack play 1985 offenses and by 1985 rules and he might be putting people on IR.

Happy for the guy.

 

I think he's gonna do really well. When he had talent in Baltimore, they had a strong defense (I believe second in the league).

 

I expect he'll do well

 

I actually think DC is his niche. His defenses in Indy  generally over-achieved. Last year is a good example. Not much talent on defense, but they kept the Colts close in most games. It was last year's offense, especially the O-Line that was the drag on the team.

I always forget that you won't ever back off supporting Pagano despite his history of poor coaching.

 

 

 

His history of poor coaching? Really?  But yet he still had a winning record.

What you don't understand about Pagano is he is not throwing anyone under the bus and points the finger at himself.  That is what a good head coach does in case you hadn't noticed.

Yes, he has a history of poor coaching (most of his Indy tenure) and had a winning record due to Luck (which he basically admitted in the link).

 

A good coach is does more than point the finger at himself, especially when he deserves the blame.

 

Not going to continue arguing with you, I realize you're prepared to die on this hill for some reason.

Look, I am not going to hash this all over again when all you want is to argue. You have your opinion and I have mine. (die on this hill?)  Just stop the dramatics.

Maybe he wasn't a great Xs and Os HC, but he was a great motivator as a HC.

 

He was a good enough HC to win his fair share of games.  He was also a bad enough HC to lose his job.

 

No denying he is a likable guy.  Good Luck to him in Chicago.  :thmup:

He was such a great motivator that he was able to motivate his teams into starting slow....?

I think the slow starts was more a symptom of his strategic deficiencies.

 

I think all the 4th quarter comebacks showed he kept his teams motivated for 4 quarters, even if he didn't make the best halftime or in-game adjustments.

 

And yes, Luck gets a lot of credit for those 4th quarter comebacks.  But on the flip-side of that coin, you have to give Luck some of the blame for slow starts and being behind early in games due to his many turnovers early in games.  :dunno:

10 of those wins were Arians not him.

Lucky was just trying to lighten it up and now you are trying to argue with him?

Jeez.

I'm not arguing with Lucky as much as I'm pointing out the flaws in supporting Pagano.

 

 

Please stop quoting me.

And I'm pointing out the flaws in calling him a poor coach.  Or "trash" as someone else said.

 

He was average at worst.  Average at best.

 

He was an average coach.  But a good dude.  I liked him.  Still do.  But I'm glad we have Reich now.  :thmup:

He was a below average coach. An average  head coach can do more than simply motivate the team.

You sank your own ship....again. 55% wins is a winner in the NFL??!!

 

Chuck Paganos' 55% ranks him 64th all-time, tied with Mike Shanahan.

 

List of coaches with worse winning %:

 

Tom Coughlin - 2 SBs

Tom Flores - 2 SBs

Dick Vermeil - 1 SB

Gary Kubiak - 1 SB

Jon Gruden - 1 SB

Buddy Ryan

Bum Phillips

 

List of coaches with winning % below 60%:

 

Mike Holmgren - 1 SB

John Harbaugh - 1 SB

Pete Carroll - 1 SB

Hank Stram - 1 SB

Bill Parcells - 2 SB

Chuck Knoll - 4 SB

Mike Ditka - 1 SB

Brian Billick - 1 SB

Jimmie Johnson - 2 SB

Mike Shanahan - 2 SB

 

For reference, there are only 4 coaches with a winning % over 70%.

 

Guy Chamberlin

John Madden

Vince Lombardi

George Allen

 

... what was that about sinking your own ship?

Pagano , like a lot of coaches can excel in a role playing assistant , that suites their expertise.

There is a lot of good assistant coaches that just can't make that leap to head coaching.

Capers, Wade Phillips , come to mind. I have nothing against Pagano, I think he is a caring human being and I wish the best for him in his new role.

How can that be said about a first time head coach?

I am pretty sure New England is glad they took a gamble with a losing coach like Belichick.

Pagano is a loser. He wants to be friends with the players. Fine, go mange your neighbors bowling team. The Bears need a fire breather like Buddy Ryan.

So do you think Tony Dungy was a bad coach?  He didn't breath fire.

One thing you need to learn is today's players do not play for a head coach who 'breaths fire' as you call it.

That may have worked years ago but not when the players make three times what the coaches make and want and  expect to be treated as grown men.

    • Not that it means anything but the Colts started out 1-4 and then run 7 wins off in a row.  Yes losing the first game was bad but not a big deal if they can go let say 10-4 the rest of the season.  I predicted a 10-6 or a 11-5 record before it started.  Any team can get hot just like the Titans did last season. 
    • Also this year's IR is much different than last year's.  Three weeks and basically unlimited IR transactions.
    • Losing to the Jags down in Jax has become something that the Colts just do.  It would have been more surprising if they actually won the game down there honestly.  Indy has lost to the Jags before and then proceeded to make the post season so this is not quite the death nail that you are making it out to be.  Every season teams lose to some that they are favored to beat and beat a few they are expected to lose to.  That’s what happens in the NFL especially when facing a division rival. 
    • Injuries played a huge part in that.  We had receivers on the field that were sitting on their couch when the season started.  Plus like it or not JBs injury also played a part. I know it was chic to put all the blame on him but IMO it was the total effect of all the injuries combined. Add the losses directly related to Vinatieri counts as injury also.  Our defense was gassed in the 2nd half of games because our offense couldn't maintain the ball. 
    • Jax gave TEN a run for their money and looked pretty good in that game.     TEN also barely beat Denver, who I don't think is very good at all this year.  So while they're in first in the conference they have barely won to two teams who  I don't think are that good.  The Texans are 0-2 but have lost to two powerhouses (KC and BAL).     Sure, it stings to lose to Jax in week 1.. but it's by no means the end of the world.  I do think, however, we almost have to win the AFC South to get a playoff bid, and I think that's very doable.  The Raiders have looked very good in the West and so have the Chiefs.  The Bills look good in the East and I can't imagine the Pats not racking up ~10 wins.  Then Baltimore and Pitt look like the real deal in the North.  My guess, as of right now would be the wildcard teams are going to come from the East (Pats) and the West (Raiders).. so it'll be important to go at least 4-2 in the division and win our gimme games (e.g., the Jets).
