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.

    • Yup. This was a good exercise to get folks thinking. I think the best time to do a board mock is a few weeks before the draft, after a lot of the FA dominos has tumbled. I almost did a flash mock last year the week before draft. Short clock, and perhaps scheduled windows
    • The "pundit" wrote his statement as if Rhodes were still on the team and not a street free agent. I was not saying we are set, we have talent. However, the premise was that the national pundit didn't even know Rhodes is a street free agent! National mocks, of course!
    • Manning and Brady, or I should say QB in general, is not a good comp. QB is a singular position which the entire O goes through, and is typically the face/leader of the team, and plays every snap. And then add on top of that PM and TB are 2 of the greatest ever and were able to play every game, all game.. And plugging them in to a team is very different than plugging in a guy who would be one of 4 on the DL, and likely playing only around 60% of snaps.    Like I said, love to have him on a reasonable deal. I just don't see him being generous enough to make it work. I'd recommend looking at our ammo (2 early draft picks, 42ish M in cap), and solving for the holes we need to fill (2xDE, LT, WR1 and 4, CB1 and 4, MIKE, TE).    I really do think most of the team will be put back together from last year. Rhodes will get a good raise, Autry and/or Houston likely, or at minimum one (similar $ to last year). TY is really the only one I don't envision being back. Perhaps Walker moves on too, but we'll need to fill that hole as Oke doesn't look to be the 3 down answer. Anyways, lot of high dollar holes, with decent, not great ammo. I'm hoping they go DE in the 1st, LT in the second. Back to the question above, how would you allocate the draft picks and $, while filling all the holes, and making it work with Watt.
    • Pundits as far as my recollection has always referred to the media folks.....wow, a lot of folks in an uproar over nothing!
