Don't know why people think the only thing an OC does is call plays...

If Marcus Brady is a no go, I would not be opposed to consider Marty Mornhinweg.   During his career as an offensive coordinator, Mornhinweg's offenses have finished 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 9th,

Seems like it’s McDaniels’ job to back out of. Good to have Sirianni as a backup option.

Last report I saw was that it's basically McDaniels' job, pending some final items. That they're interviewing a new candidate is interesting.

Possibly a fail-safe in case McDaniel's decides to pull something?

It might be as a back-up option based on McDaniels' past actions, as a negotiating tactic to leverage against McDaniels, or just to to put some pressure on him to make a decision sooner.

What's stopping them from making it official with McDaniels? They've been interviewing for almost two weeks now, and unlike the Colts in 2018, there's nothing stopping them from hiring him whenever they want.

True, he could be hired right now on the spot. Perhaps due diligence, or because of his past they want to make absolutely sure that he's the right guy?

I mean, who knows. Just seems to signal that they've moved off of him, or he declined/withdrew.

 

The Colts interviewed four guys on the first attempt in 2018, then three more after McDaniels snaked us. With Sirianni, the Eagles have 11 guys on the list (not sure that they interviewed all 11). That's a lot, for a typical HC search.

Agreed, something is up.

Saw this elsewhere, it might have some validity:

I wonder if the Eagles are trying to get feedback and intel from across the NFL on how these guys feel about Carson Wentz...It's honestly not a bad idea. Interview brightest minds/evaluators and see what they think to help with assessment

How different is Siranni/Reich's offense to Pederson? If it's similar, I don't see why they'd take him. 

I don’t think Philly’s problems were the offensive system.   Remember, it’s the same system the Eagles won the Super Bowl with.

 

The problem was Pederson appeared to lose the team, not just Wentz.   And also Philly got wiped out by injuries everywhere.  I think they were among the leaders in games lost due to injuries.

Fair enough. I just think if they're planning to make big changes, they're probably looking at changing the system and schemes. Nothing against Sirianni at all.

Oh no. If he leaves who will...

 

Jeff Goldblum What GIF by The Late Late Show with James Corden
 

uh, do whatever he does for us?

 

What does he do?

 

Remember all those years Caldwell was our QB coach, and his job actually consisted of making sure Peyton didn’t want a water on the sidelines? 
 

Maybe that’s what Frank makes Nick do...

McWeasel: Bill, Mr Kraft, I'm taking the Eagles job.

Bill: You mean that's what you're telling them, right?

McWeasel: Of course, I'm not actually going to take it.

Kraft: Okay, good. Take that Philly Special!

Right. The fundamentals of their offense wasn't the problem. I've been watching their offense the past couple days to get a gauge on Wentz (short story there, he's still good, but has to play more disciplined from the bottom up), and Pederson's play calling was bad at times, their receivers got very little separation, and the pass protection was awful. Wentz also made bad decisions at times.

It shows man games lost, but does not show significance of those players lost. To bad there isn't a way to chart that.

The size of the bubble indicates quality of player, based on an advanced metric. Not saying it's infallible, but it tries to account for how good the player is.

I might be way underestimating Sirianni, but I just don't see the Eagles hiring a guy without HC or play calling experience. Happy he is getting interviewed though. 

 

Assuming he stays in Indy, I do hope he gets to call plays in 21

Now THIS is a very good post!  
 

I see lots of posters who want Sirianni to be the new play caller.    But you’re right, none of us knows if he’ll be better or worse than Frank.   In theory, Nick is Frank’s other half because they think alike.   So I wouldn’t think the chances of Sirianni being better or different from Frank would be all that good....

 

Just saying....

Nobody knows....

 

But I'd take the risk given I don't like Frank's.

This.

 

Reich is a good play-caller. He's certainly not perfect and, if I could cite only one reason that the Colts lost to the Bills, it would be the play that he called when he went for it on fourth down. I agree with the decision to go for it, but the actual play-call was garbage imo.

 

With that being said, he's also called some great games, and some made some great calls in the clutch. No-one is perfect and he certainly seems aware of his own shortcomings. That's half the battle.

 

I hope Reich continues to call the plays, and continues to grow as a play-caller.

So just curious. Why do you think Reich is a good play caller? LAC with Rivers was the 10th ranked total O last year, and had a horrible OL and a bottom 5 rushing attack. The Colts had a top 5ish OL this year, a top 10 rushing O, and we were 10th in total O.... 

 

Given the huge jump in OL and rushing rank between LAC 2019 and Indy 2020, and given the they had the same QB, wouldn't you expect Indy to have a better overall O rank than LAC last year if Reich was such a great play caller?

 

Not trying to be sarcastic, I just don't understand where all the "good play caller" stuff is coming from. He's only called plays in one other place (SDC), and was fired for having the worst balance in the NFL. I see him as very predictable, who lacks flow and the ability to adjust.

This. . . I feel like when the team loses people have a hard time accepting it and just look for someone to blame.  The blame usually ends up on the HC and the playcalling.

Yes no one is a perfect play caller AND that certainly describes Frank and often his in game decision making is also head scratching. :scratch:

 

You said you liked him going for it on 4th down vs buffalo at the 4yd line. But he had 3rd & goal at the 2 and knew he would go for it on 4th if necessary.  So calling a outside run, which lost 2 yards, was a bad call. The play was punch it in inside behind our All World Guard on 3rd & 4th down and NOT pitch it outside behind a LT that we just talked out of retirement and promoted from the practice squad!

    • Crap, sorry.   with the 129th pick, the Seahawks select:   Anthony Schwartz, WR, Auburn   If that doesn’t make Russell Wilson happy, then 7@€# him!   @crazycolt1and the Jags are aim the clock.
    • Watson started this recent public trade thing by stating that the organization has flawed hiring practices.  And I think he never debunked the idea that the current owner was a lot like his father, simply because he is his son.   Its not really about the next season or even the team's won loss record over the next three years.  Its bigger than that.  I think it would be smarter to not accommodate whiners, and in a legal manner, not set the precedent of accommodating someone who conducts detrimental actions that undermines the new coach and the authority structure of the organization.   If you accommodate Watson, you set the precedent that all whiners need to be accommodated or else you end up singling some out for disparate treatment.  This shows what a cancer players like Watson are to an entire organization.    And, I would think a player like that has limited trade value, despite the rumors.  I would  simply move on from him....forget he even exists...would be the less time consuming and smarter move.  If he wants to sit out, fine, but I'm drafting this spring with the idea that he's going to try to put me at a disadvantage and wait until after FA and the draft before he tells me he wont play next year.   There is some root of the problem that has yet to be revealed.   If its about making bad personnel decisions, resulting in a losing record, I get that....but the HC, OBrien who was responsible for those moves was fired months ago.  Seems like Watson and Watt are still holding some kind of grudge over something, or simply launching their marketing brand by grandstanding.   If I were the GM, I'd just ignore Watson until he apologized for those statements instead of honoring his wishes, and then if the team struggles, show to the whole world what people like that can do to a team, blame the teams failure's over a whiner sitting out the season too arrogant and stubborn to apologize for something he should not have said in the first place.       
    • The 2006 team was the greatest and it is not even a debate. They went 10-0 at home including the playoffs, 16-4 overall, and most importantly won the SB = they finished. The 2005 team during the regular season beat teams by a wider margin but lost in the divisional round. That team did not have Adam Vinatieri either, the 2006 team did. In 2006 we seen the best of Bob Sanders in the playoffs and we went through Ray Lewis/Ed Reed/Steve McNair at Baltimore, and beat Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the AFC Title Game. Also in respect to the 2009 team, that team didn't have Vinatieri either, nor did it have Marvin Harrison or Bob Sanders, Dungy wasn't the Coach as well. It is 2006 hands down.
    • Probably 2005, that  team was loaded and then played a tragically bad game to the sixth seeded Steelers in the playoffs.
