I like to pretty thoroughly follow those that are considered rising stars in the coaching profession, and Brady is one of them.

 

And Milanovich is an excellent offensive mind that won a championship in 2017.

 

I'm pretty excited for these hires.

 

Also, it's very likely that Eberflus is staying.  If he was gone, it was likely Gannon who would've been promoted to DC.

I’d be more worried if nobody wanted our coaches or scout. So this is a good thing to me. Sure on the surface level it’s a bad thing, but what this means is we have a well built and well run organization.

Gonna be interesting. It’d be one thing to lose one guy, but when we’ve lost like 4 coaches now, and will very possibly keep losing guys in the future (Dodds, Brown, Flus). It’s tough.

 

Everything I’ve read about Brady and this guy is good...but we’ll see.

The team sure is tight lipped on Eason. Either he will be the starting QB next year or maybe just didnt work out well this season behind closed doors

Even if he did work out well behind closed doors, how would that make him the starting quarterback? Fourth round pick. Considered a project when drafted. Zero NFL snaps regular or preseason. With the level of importance of the quarterback position, I don't see a guy who wasn't even all conference in college a year earlier taking some practice snaps for a season and being annointed the starting QB.

Ballard said in his end of year press conference that he wasn’t sure if Eason was ready to be the backup, and he needed more time to figure that out.   The backup. 
 

Why do you think Eason might be the starter this year?

Not happening as starter but I’ll put some money down as backup. He’s had a year of seasoning though no opportunities on the field once TC was done. I suspect $ issues will guide the Colts to using Eason as #2 unless he’s just putrid in the off season workouts. I doubt he will be. Of course, I’m in the group of believers that the Colts will trade for their new starting QB.

He was just recently the head coach of Edmonton (of the CFL).

 

He coached his team to a championship in 2017.

 

According to sources, Reich has wanted him as part of the staff in Indy for quite some time.  Would be an outstanding hire.

The bolded sentence above isnt true.

 

He wasnt hired to be Edmontons HC until after the 2019 CFL season. Never officially coached a game for them due to covid. He was the QB coach in JAX in 2017.

So we got a guy that coached for the putrid and perennial Jags? Yuck

This ranks right up there with the end of ‘17.   Pagano got fired with the rest of his staff.   And it was as near unanimous as a fan website could be that Pagano and his staff all sucked.   Period. 
 

Except almost all of them got hired by other teams.   I think only Chudzinski didn’t get hired.   And people here started to notice.    What’s going on?   Why are our former assistants getting hired by other teams?   This doesn’t make sense?   We sucked.  We hated the head coach, therefore all of his assistants must suck too!    Except they didn’t.   
 

It is possible for a good coach to be in a bad team.   Happens all the time.    Sorry.

Jags went to the AFC championship that year when he was the QB coach.

 

@SaturdayAllDay Re: the bold sentence, seems like it was just a miscommunication re: the fact that he went to the AFC championship game in 2017.

I prefer to look at the positives.

 

We got a guy who managed to coach up Blake Bortles to an AFC Title game. Also multiple championships as a CFL coach, and a CFL coach of the Year award. Not a terrible resume.

He won the Grey Cup in 2012 as the Head Coach of the Toronto Argonauts

Probably due to the fact he's literally the only man contracted at the position? He won't be likely the starter, but I'm sure that is the basis for the line of thought....

As far as the potential hire goes.....seems as though we could have a coach with intimate knowledge of at least one full teams worth of players.

 

If we could use that insider knowledge to snatch a solid contributor or two that would be great.

There is a massive amount of territory between those two options.

I can't see any scenario where he goes from first to third in one season, even if he did look good last season in practice.

That's not an option we want. Give him a couple of years as a backup and then it's possible.

    • I've said numerous times combined we're gonna pay around 50 mil a year.   Nelson 16-18 mil Leonard 18-20 mil Smith 14-15 mil
    • Wentz will need protection if he is going to deliver. Yesterday it was said of him he was thought to be the second coming of Andrew Luck. Lets hope that is not the case when he goes under center and gets racked all season long like Luck.
    • Luck retired right before the 2019 season.   That only gave Ballard 1 offseason to address the QB situation.  He knew the team was good and didn't want to waste a year so he brought in Rivers.   Rivers had a good year despite no training camp or preseason with the receivers.  Went 11-5.   68% completions, 24TD's, 11 INT's.  Lost by 3 in the playoffs.  I was pretty happy with the season.  Now, a year and a half later he has the future QB on the team.   I'm glad he didn't reach too much.  I suppose he could have drafted Jalen Hurts but he took Pittman and Taylor instead and grabbed Eason in the 4th round.  I think he handled this well.
    • But we got Mark Hermann.   Colts won that trade.  Ha ha. maybe if they would have used the pick they got from Denver better.   They took Ron Solt.  
    • My big gripe with Ballard has been not addressing long-term QB.    I think last year was wasted because, at best, it was a 1-2 year solve and we knew that going in. I hear all the time about a rookie QB wasting prime years of an established team which is essentially what Rivers did.    This is also why I'm very high on the Wentz move. You have to make a move for a long-term QB at some point and, imo, the sooner the better. I'm not particularly affected if this move fails (at least we're trying now). I regularly hear that missing on a QB will set your franchise back several years. You know what else will set your franchise back? Not having a QB.   My gripes with Ballard are over now.
