Matt Slauson is retiring

Recommended Posts

 

Would not be surprised to see him land an assistant offensive line coaching job with the Colts.

Agree he would be a great coach!!

 

Yep, assistant OL coach or coaching assistant would be a good role for him.

No big loss, he wouldn't have been in the plans for the future anyways.

 

He was a solid piece when he was healthy but his injury helped us figure out our OL for the future.  And I think he did help teach Smith and Nelson.  

 

Was valuable to have here when we brought him in but he wouldn't offer us much as a player.

Hes a broken player at this stage of his career! But has a lot of knowledge!

If available when we pick in the draft, should we then draft a guard?

 

I know we have Quenton Nelson and Mark Glowinski, but after that, we are pretty thin at that position.

 

So if Cody Ford, Chris Lindstrom or Eric McCoy is there, should we then pick one of those players, over a difference maker to protect Luck even more?

I have every confidence that the Colts will draft at least one O-lineman. Just not early.

I hope we Slauson on the Colts sidelines as an assistant coach in the not-to-distant future.

 

I'm sure he'll have his choice of offers.    I hope he enjoyed his year here enough to want to stay in Indianapolis.    

 

Here's to your good health.    Enjoy your retirement!     You sure earned it!!

Not knowing if you do know, the injury was fully healed. He said that due to the injury he realized he liked coaching too. Just wanted to say that so in case you thought his injury wasnt fully heal it is.

No I knew. I just think it had a factor in his decision. Neck injuries are nothing to mess with.

Dude's hard as nails. Would love to him be in a role similar to Mathis, but for the O-Line 

 

As much as that would be nice, I think the problem is that Slauson doesn't have any particular allegiance to the Colts.  He played with 3 other organizations and he only played in Indy for 1 year.  I would hardly expect him to think of himself as a Colt for life.  

 

I think we got Mathis coaching here because he saw himself as a Colt for life.  He played his entire career here, didn't really want to leave the game or the locker room completely behind and he probably wanted to still help the team.

He will always be remembered as one of the key pieces that brought our O line to respectability

I think you're right.

 

I also think he can see the potential this team has, and he stuck around and gave advice to the guys after he could've just collected his check and bounced. He would be smart (if a position was even offered) to stick around and coach these guys up. I don't know for sure, but I think they listened to him quite a bit.

Who Mathis?  

 

He's actually a paid member of the coaching staff.  "pass rush coordinator" is his position.

 

The big question is if another team offered Mathis a position that is obviously a promotion like DL coach, would he accept?

Just saw a teeet Matt was offered a incredible opportunity to be a part of the colts coaching staff. He turned it down because he wants to take some time with his  family. He said will revisit it in the future. I wonder if they offered him the oline coach job.

 

I think Mathis should keep getting promoted with the colts. He might make a great DC some day.

I feel extremely confident Reich didn't offer him the job of Oline coach.

I strongly suspect you're right.

 

But that doesn't mean Slauson wasn't offered some type of job to be on Reich's staff.    Even if it was the assistant to the assistant OL coach.     Just something that keeps him in the program.

What I just described is a coaching job.

 

The position coach is a coaching job.      The assistant position coach is a coaching job.    The assistant to the assistant is a coaching job.      It's only a matter of job title.     But they're ALL coaching jobs.

I was referring to Slauson - who the thread is about.

 

I would hope Mathis wouldn't leave, but you never know

They would have not offered him the o'line coach job.  It very clearly would have been some entry level coaching role - an apprenticeship of sorts.

They would never offer any one a position coach job to a person with zero coaching experience

    • It's not nearly as bad, or as big of deal as you are making it out to be. Even in the stories I have seen and read today it's not getting that much attention.  The Colts not going after the money they could get back is what's getting the press.    The booing won't have any effect on FAs; If anything, the absence of an elite QB will be a bigger issue when it comes to attracting FAs.        
    • Yeah...I shouldn't have said active. I meant games he has appeared in.   But if you just look at active games...he will have played in more than half...which is still pretty incredible for a guy drafted into the situation he was. 
    • I do agree with Jimmy our owner too. Andrew isn't really being selfish when you remember all the millions of dollars he leaving on the table.   If you're heart's not in the game anymore because your body keeps betraying you, I could see why turning the page to something else seems appealing to Luck. You watch his press conference & can't help but feel for the guy & what he's endured since he first got here in 2012. He raves about Mathis, Wayne, Hilton, Adam V. The guy doesn't have a malicious bone in his body man. He loves INDY & her diehard fans. The guy is genuinely broken up emotionally over this decision man. He didn't reach it lightly at all.    The funny thing about rage & anger is this: It's only a burden to those who carry it & refuse to release it & let it go over time. Fans have a right to be upset just remember that no one was hoodwinked, swindled, or lied to here. The situation was abrupt, unexpected, even awkward perhaps, but I honestly don't think this news was withheld on purpose by anybody inside the Colts organization. Life teaches us to adapt all the time. The only constant is change & our organization will handle this change with professionalism, dignity, & a sense of renewed purpose like we always do. 
    • I am pretty sure he was active for all 16 games plus two playoff games last year.
    • I would guess not.    He honestly looks like a 155 pound incel there who has been on a bender for 3 weeks.
