Colts promote Marcus Brady to OC (merge)


Recommended Posts

  • w87r changed the title to Colts promote Marcus Brady to OC (merge)

I think this was a good move...now we will find out if Sirianni  was making the calls or Reich... another plus the eagles feel like Siranni will be able to work and help Wentz !! Yes... did not want his contract that starts this year... 70 mil guaranteed & 128 mil...

Nice move

Yeah I really like this move, hire from within.

 

I like him being called rising star by Mort. His name was hot lately with couple teams inquiring about him.

Great to see people promoted within. It's not always the best option but obviously Ballard/Reich don't do this if Brady wasn't doing a great job. 

 

It will be interesting to see who they hire as a QB coach and if the Colts find another up and coming coach for that spot.

This is fantastic, and now everyone can stop the Wentz talk. 

What's one thing got to do with the other?

 

I'm a Wentz denier (lol), uhh.. but I don't see this move as changing the teams view of him

Based from what I saw, Philly will actually have a good coach that knows how to use players, and speculation was Wentz returning as the starter.

Didn’t he get lost in his own museum once?

 

Ope, I’m sorry. That was Marcus BrOdy. My bad. As you were. 

Thought the same thing! So funny

I was hoping we'd grab an experienced OC, there's more than a few available..

If we’re being honest we already have one: his name is Frank Reich.

Someone may be more experienced, but it doesn’t mean their views on offense mesh with Frank’s.  
 

Marcus knows what the job is.   No doubt he helped Sirianni do his job as well during the week.    Now Brady gets to move one chair over.  Frank knows him and the kid knows Frank.   
 

I know what you’re saying.  This is pretty straight forward.  I don’t think Reich and Ballard would elevate the kid if he wasn’t ready.

For some, this is the reason why it was lauded when Reich was hired and would be heavily invested in running the offense. So far, the contingency plan has worked. Nick has left, but with Reich, the system remains. A much different situation compared to the Luck Era. 
 

Love it or hate it, Reich’s offense is still here. Now, how much will Brady tweak it is the question.

So...he's going to call plays?

No, I’m confidant a first time OC is suddenly going to be our play caller.

 

At this point, Frank will call plays with strong input from the OC.   It was that way with Sirianni, it will be that way with Brady.

Torn on this. Not really torn, just honestly don't have a clue what to think.

 

His CFL team's O was up and down. I haven't dug in to gain context though. Given Sirianni didn't call plays, I doubt Brady does either. 

 

I think I would have preferred us to hire an experienced play caller that would come in and actually call plays. I do like hearing that he likes a more open offense, but if he's not calling plays, not sure how much that will impact things.

I have been hearing he loves to open things up as well. A system like his may fit a QB like Stafford perfectly the way Stafford loves to fling it. I still hope we run the ball a lot.

I just don't see us being that much "wide open" with Reich calling plays. But who knows.

I think there’s a good chance you’re right.  
 

But if you think of Eason as a candidate to be our future,  he would seem out of place in a dink and dunk, or ball control offense.  Wouldn’t the team want to use Eason’s arm to stretch the field?   Make the defense defend more space?   

 

I would think with better or more weapons at WR and TE, our offense could get stretched out more.    I agree, perhaps not wide open, but maybe more wide open-ish.

    • The trade is just not realistic and it would be odd to see us re-sign only one player, let the rest walk and then sign that many free agents. With that said I like most of the personnel except Carl Lawson. The draft is great, the trade just doesn't make sense from the Dolphins standpoint. There is plenty to like here.
    • I think some of that and why he has regressed is because of that ACL injury. That is a confidence issue with him now. He wants to keep that toe bent so if he gets hit in the leg, it will bend the way it needs to. He's got to trust again. That's why he made a lot of those bad throws this year because he didn't trust his line to protect him.   The messed up thing about that is he got his knee busted on a run play diving for 6.    Godspeed young man.

    • Not sure if we're better, but I think we have more hope. I for one, am just happy we checked the box. And I'm growing more confident it works out.
    • Not sure if it was ever a "character" issue. Sounds more like attitude to me. Purely my opinion, but he's a smart guy, has likely read everything written about him, and knows he needs to embrace this chance. If he chokes at Indy, he's likely done. Hoping he's self aware, and comes in with a fresh perspective and attitude. Regardless, I'm not sure fixing him, is really a monumental task the more I read, and the more I think about things. If his mechanics fell apart in one year, he should be able to fix them in an offseason. Sounds like he just got sloppy, and that was compounded by a lot of external things. Or one could say a lot of external things created a negative situation, and he became sloppy (perhaps stopped caring).   Whatever it is/was, I'm just not near as worried as I once was. Like I said, I think he'll return to at minimum 2019 form, and not sure Reich will have a lot to do with it. I think the freshness (new team, new city) will create a new attitude. And the OL and overall quality of the team in Indy will resonate.   I think I'm back to being more concerned about Reich lol... I don't buy all the QB whisperer stuff. Sure he's had musical chairs to deal with, but overall I credit his conservative scheme more than anything. And that's great when you're working with chaos or musical chairs. Not sure it'll be good enough to go deep once the chaos and musical chairs stop.
