And that means there is a better chance that Rhodes will not be back unless pay more, he had talked about Gannon 

 

Yeah, I was thinking the same.

Well im assuming Flus stays. Otherwise Reich maybe promotes Gannon to DC in anticipation of Flus leaving instead of letting Gannon leave

Flus is still apparently an early favorite for the Texans job.

That's only for HC/GM positions, right?

 

 You know, I;'m not sure. I think it applies to HCs too. Not sure about OC/DC, etc.

Just when I thought the Colts might actually go a whole day....   One!   Hole!   Day!   without losing someone....    now we have lost our DB coach.

 

I know we will find someone we like...   in 4 years, I think this administration has shown it can find players AND coaches to do the job.

 

I was just hoping to go a day....        Oh well....      :peek:

The bright side of the Colts losing coaches is that it means that we have a really good coaching staff in place. People should be raiding our staff. It’s the mark of any great front office.

This is starting to worry me, if Eberflus also leaves. It could result in a mass exodus of our assistant coaches which could really hurt us. It reminds me of the Eagles after the Super Bowl, when they lost a lot of coaches and it seemed they never recovered.

If anyone can summarize this, I'd appreciate it.     I can't read a word.    I can't seem to enlarge it.

 

 

Sure NCF, here's the whole thing:

 

2020 Resolution JC-2A

 

Whereas, the member clubs believe that policies designed to promote equal employment opportunity and a diverse and inclusive workforce advance significant league interests, including improved decision making, enhanced business performance, and representing the NFL as an employer of choice that hires and promotes based on merit; and

 

Whereas, the member clubs have adopted policies extending over several decades in furtherance of these goals, including policies designed to permit upward mobility and advancement of club employees, particularly those in coaching and football operations roles; and

 

Whereas, the member clubs believe that it is appropriate to take additional steps to enhance opportunities for employment and advancement of minorities and women in key positions, including leadership roles in coaching, personnel, and football operations,

 

Be it Resolved, that the League Policy on Equal Employment and Workplace Diversity will be amended as follows:

 

(i) The employer-club of a minority employee who has been hired by another club as its Head Coach or Primary Football Executive (General Manager) shall receive Draft choice compensation in the form of a compensatory Draft pick in the third round in each of the next two Drafts for an employee hired as either a Head Coach or Primary Football Executive, or for the next three Drafts if it has two employees hired for both positions. The reference to the hiring of employees into “both positions” could be by the same club or different clubs. The following will apply to the Draft choice compensation:

     a. Any compensatory Draft picks awarded pursuant to this Policy will be at the end of the third round following all compensatory Draft picks awarded to clubs pursuant to Appendix V of the NFL-NFLPA Collective Bargaining Agreement. 

     b. If multiple clubs are awarded compensatory Draft picks pursuant to this Policy, then the order of those picks at the end of the third round will follow the original selection order for that Draft established prior to any trades or other adjustments.

 

(ii) The employer-club shall be eligible to receive this Draft choice compensation if:

     a. The minority employee hired as a Head Coach or Primary Football Executive has been employed by the employer-club for a minimum of two full seasons; and

     b. The minority employee is not the Head Coach or Primary Football Executive of the employer-club and is hired into the same position with the new club. There can be no break in employment between clubs.

 

Submitted by Workplace Diversity Committee

 

Effect: Establishes a system that rewards clubs for developing minority employees who move to the position of Primary Football Executive or Head Coach with other clubs.

 

Reason: Supports development opportunities for minority employees to advance goals of diversity, equity and inclusion.

Thanks for doing this, Dogg.

 

I hope this somewhat incentivizes teams to make good choices and do it for the right reasons.   This issue has been so difficult to get right for the league for a long, LONG time.    Hopefully this is a good step in the right direction.

 

Thanks again, 63....

so Sirianni leaves and basically takes Gannon with him, and the Colts...

 

need 1) an OC and 2) a DB coach

 

is that the current state of things?

 

It'll be interesting if Flus leaves too (& takes anyone with him)

For a team that got knocked out the playoffs in the 1st round we sure are losing alot of coaches. What does that say about Reich's coaching staff. His staff is in high demand. Ballard and Reich are bringing in high character guys and good coaches. They will bring in guys to fill the rolls that are being taken. Yes it's a little disturbing that it's happening but not worried about the losses. Remember we where going to higher Josh what's his face and we got Reich. It's worked out pretty well with no true #1 qb to roll with. Ballard will fill these positions and we will be fine

It's because we don't have Mahomes or a cast of game changers.  To get to 11-5, people think they must be getting coached up pretty well.

Just curious. What exactly has worked out so well. We got beat handily in the 2018 playoffs. We didn't make the playoffs last year. We lost a playoff game we should have won this year. The roster is/was better overall, but that didn't really manifest itself in the playoffs. 

 

If anything, it feels like teams are picking at the bones because they see good pieces at an otherwise underperforming 2020 team. 

 

Sirianni is a huge gamble for Philly. Many have called it a stretch only to try an salvage Wentz. Many have even said not hiring McDaniels was a mistake. I wouldn't make any definitive statement about it either way, but hiring a non-play-calling OC to be a HC is a gamble. Hiring a DB coach from a team with a soft zone (easily the worst unit on the team) to be a DC is another dice roll. 

 

Only time will tell, but the moves aren't really indicative to anything IMO.

It sort of makes sense for their situation, though.  Their money is tied up in their QB and DLine.

 

So they go get Sirianni for Wentz, and get Gannon for a scheme that depends on the DLine.  Also, both are under 40, which follows this trend of trying to find young coaching talent.

 

I could see it energize that team and they might have some early success if Sirianni can take the reins and maintain a good locker room.  We'll have to see what they do with the draft and FA, and what might be another weird covid-offseason when it comes to training camp and preseason.  :dunno:

I called it last week (Sirianni to salvage Wentz). Makes total sense, but IMO a call more to save face/cap, than to be bold and win.

Could be a great move. I'm not sure how much Sirianni might have been held back by Reich's scheme, or Gannon held back by a conservative bend don't break D.

total coin flip IMO.

If they look really good leading Philly, it'll look bad on the Colts schemes.

It's official, they've agreed to terms now. Kevin Patullo is also going to the Eagles.

 

 

 

This is what I was afraid of our assistant coaches are getting gutted and it will only get worse if Eberflus leaves. 

It's gonna be hard to replace them.

Perk up there Petey... We will still get Stafford and send all of our remaining picks to the packers for Jordan Love so we should be better than fine.... :lol:

Solutions to losing young, talented coaches:

 

1. Be a losing team

2. hire young, lousy coaches (this will help maintain #1)

3. hire older coaches who are close to retirement, and are no longer looking to move up the ranks

good , maybe now average qbs will not look like all pros against us

 

Or maybe take as indication that a lot of fan complaint against the D was ill judged and uninformed, given that the rest of the league (who you'd hope would know something about football) is going after most of our coaching staff from that side of the ball this year.

I am not one of the believers that our coaching was bad, I think Gannon is a huge loss and means we probably won't get rhodes back because he came here for Gannon. He was also the clear replacement for Eberflus, so now if Eberflus leaves to the texans, who knows who will replace him. I just hope we have somewhere to replenish our position coaches that leave

    • A few things: 1) Caldwell simply just inheriting Dungy's job - as a person I like Caldwell, but don't think he is a very good HC.  He inherited a very good team and I think with a better coach that team could have gone 16-0 and potentially 19-0 (so I guess add Hank Baskett and Freeney's injury in this category as it would still have been cool to go 17-2 and won the SB over NO that year).   2) Grigson becoming GM.  I like Ballard as a GM, and even though he was a first year GM coming here, he was more experienced and seems a lot more level-headed than Grigson.  Who knows what would have happened, but having Luck available at #1 after the Peyton era was almost a dream situation.  I think an experienced GM could have done a lot more with Luck (e.g., given him a solid OL, provided better weapons, kept him healthier, etc.) and he could still be playing today if not for Grigson who seemed to like to overspend in FA, did a poor job (he tried and failed) at building an OL, and according to McAfee and others made the Colts' facility a toxic environment to players and others below him.   3) As multiple others have said the 95 AFCCG (the almost catch from Bailey on the Hail Mary, Kordell's running out of bounds in the back of the endzone and catching a TD, etc.) -- Harbaugh is one of my all-time favorite Colts and I would have loved to have seen him and Ted Marchibroda win a SB together.
    • The thing about it is that Schefter doesn't just make stuff up. He might be wrong, he might have made a premature declaration, whatever, but it wasn't just his own speculation with no basis in reality. Especially not the way he said it.   If he said this about Justin Fields, we'd barely bat an eye. It's because we're convinced it's a mistake that there's so much trouble accepting it.
    • So many on here I agree with, but here's one:  Use the 2014 1st rounder on DeMarcus Lawrence or Davante Adams instead of trading for Trent Richardson. 
    • Yes it sounded very definitive. BUT... he's still not presenting it as sourced information. There is still a lot of "I believe" and none of "Sources are telling me" . This is the thing. I absolutely allow him to have his opinions and to make conjectures based on what he's hearing around the league. I still don't believe it until he says it's source with direct knowledge that's telling him this. Maybe I get proven wrong in 10 days... who knows...     This IMO is a problem with those huge insiders who I think have great sources and great success when actually reporting news - the problem of people parsing their opinions as news. I don't fault people because they are used to hearing news from those reporters, but when they are put in a position where they don't have direct info, I would be doubly careful to make sure people know they are presenting an opinion rather than inside information.    I don't think it serves Schefter or anyone well to present this strong of an opinion as certainty and news. What happens now if 49ers pick someone else? Does Schefter lose credibility? Or does he just weasel out of it by saying - well things changed in those 2 weeks? 
    • Listen to this clip, which starts a few seconds before the one you shared.     I don't remember him sounding as definitive about Herbert/Tua last season. He did say they'd both go high, and ultimately, they did. Tua to Miami was always the favorite pick, but there were some questions. His comment about Mac Jones sounds different to me.   He could be wrong, and again he kind of backed down a few days later. But "it will be Mac Jones" was a definitive sounding statement that he made, and then he went on to state some scenarios that could happen. It was still pretty strong sounding.
