Indy Star - Kravits,- SB contenders and early line is Pats Eagles

Top AFC choices

1. New England Patriots. Sorry if I just made you do a spit-take with your Cheerios. But it's hard to bet against a team that went 14-2 last season with a young defense that wasn't quite ready to take the next big step. Give this group another year of maturation, and they're going to be beasts.

This has nothing to do with the questionable additions of defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth and wide receiver Chad Ochocinco; it has everything to do with the amazing way coach Bill Belichick has revamped his team on the run in recent years -- a better job, we should mention, than the Colts

Very few QBs are good at throwing under pressure. Last year when Peyton had his string of INTs, he was getting pressured like crazy and the O-line was playing brutally.

Superman,

i AM GLAD YOIU Sid that, I hear so often how (insert top QB name here) can't throw under pressure, well DUH why do you think that is such a key to every teams game plan no matter who they are facing.

As it's already been pointed out, if you get pressure on any QB, you disrupt everything. The notion that Brady can't throw under pressure is also pretty difficult to support. He's built his reputation on it in lots of ways. Just because his line, more often than not, protects him well, that doesn't mean that when there is pressure he falters.

But if you need more than that, here's a listing of QB ratings from 2010 for blitz situations.

Brady was #2 behind Rodgers. Manning uncharacteristically did not crack the top 10 last year, but I think we're all aware that he had virtually no continuity on his line. Still, if I used your logic, I'd simply say that Manning can't throw with pressure in his face. Which I know is very, very untrue.

That D-Line for the Pats will be number one in rushing yards allowed this year at the very least. And with a young defense behind them that will benefit from another year together AND the leadership of the new vets....Take a look at the Pats schedule, because it may be another 14-2 year, if not better.

With Shaun Ellis it looks like maybe the Pats are going 4-3 all the way.

With not a lot of great LBs and none drafted or got in FA this may indeed be the case.

We shall see:)

Do you think this would this mean you'd see Spikes in the middle and kick Mayo to the weakside ? I'd also be curious to know who'd man the other OLB spot. I think a 4-3 means Cunningham moves up to the line, but who else can play the outside spot? Ninkovich?

Listening to the Felger show they responded to Belichick's press conf where he said when asked about a 4-3..."We're not changing our technique" which would be the two gap, but we "might change alignments" (4-3) depending on game plan/opponent. That tells me the 3-4 and 4-3 as he's done in the past.

BB has said many times he doesn't know what he's got until around week 4..or even later. Because he does build a different team each season.

So I'm retracting the 4-3 only:)

heck Ellis or Haynesworth might not even be on the roster opening day:)

    • No need to lock.  I didn't mean that. I didn't know that there were people that didn't know this story.   Baltimore fans were heart broken but, these days, everything has worked out for the best.   Thankfully   Although there is still disagreement on who has rights to the franchise history before the move.  But, even that is fading   Time heals
    • When Frank has had a good quarterback, he wins and makes the playoffs.   The two years he didn’t make the playoffs were the two Luck years where things went to heck at the last minute.   And one of those two years we looked like a playoff team until JB got hurt.  From there, things went downhill.   This year, we never lost two games in a row.  When we lost a game, we won the next week.  A very good sign of a well coached team.   We had one bad loss, week one in a season where Covid wiped out the entire off-season and all pre-season games.   Ballard speaks glowingly of Frank.   He knows how hard it is to find a good coach.   I’m not sure why you think we’re not a well coach team, but for some strange reason you do. 
    • So you don’t really agree with most?
    • Whether I've heard of them or not is irrelevant. What's relevant is that our coaches can lead our team to a SB win. You can bash me because of my lack of knowledge all you want. The real question is, do you trust Ballard to hire coaches over 31 other teams? Do you trust Frank Reich's word that these guys are good? You are being positive and trustworthy just for the sake of it too. I don't trust anyone for us until they prove they can do their job at the highest level, in the NFL and on the Indianapolis Colts.
    • Joe Tiller coached future HOFer Drew Brees at Purdue.  He's the father of "basketball on grass."  One of the most brilliant offensive coaches of his generation with an outstanding coaching tree.    I say this with no disrespect, but the fact that you haven't heard of someone is pretty meaningless.    Your responses regarding the listing of several coaching legends, together with your reactions toward the several up-and-coming NFL coaches that have been named in this thread, has established you're pretty much only familiar with a few household names that virtually every casual NFL fan is familiar with.   If that was the criterion by which all coaching decisions and hires were made, no coach would ever move up the ranks and have the chance to become successful.    Sirianni was pretty much a nobody before the Colts hired him.  He's still only 39 years old.  Now he's the HC of the Eagles.  Eberflus had never coordinated a defense before he got to Indy.  I'm guessing you had no idea who Gannon was until he was hired away.    In sum, there's no reason to be overly negative about things just for the sake of being overly negative.  It may be more rewarding to expand your horizons and learn more about the game and how many great coaches permeate every level of it.  Some coaches that you perceive as "bad" because of their tenure with a certain team go on to do great things in a different environment.  Same can be said for coaches that you've never heard of (which is seemingly a pretty big list).  That's the nature of the business.
