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.

    • It’s also not true, even with the Colts.  Jim Harbaugh wore number 12 his first year in Indy when he was signed to become the starting QB from the Bears before changing to his normal number 4 the following season because Dean Biasucci already had number 4 when Harbaugh got to Indy and left after 1994 in free agency.
    • Greg Cosell was guest at the Ross Tucker podcast and they talked about the QBs of this coming year's draft. Here are some highlights of what Cosell thought of the different prospects:   Trevor Lawrence: - high level traits prospect - no question he has size, athleticism, armstrength. - He can throw with touch, pace. He can layer his throws, he can throw with precise ball placement  - good elimination and isolation ability, improved from 2019 to 2020 - can move in the pocket but needs improvement in that area - has second reaction ability , very good athlete - can have QB run game with him - only concern - tends to rush himself when there is pressure and he's not a snap thrower, more of a full body thrower so when there are people around him he tends to rush his mechanics and play a little fast.  - thinks Burrow's feel for the game was better last year than Lawrence's feel for the game.    Zach Wilson: - second best QB prospect in this draft  - efficient ball distributor, good feel for the timing of the passing game - has playmaking dimension with his mobility - game built on pocket efficiency and off-schedule movement - those things play well in the league - much to work with when it comes to his traits, his feel, his awareness - can run the structure well and adds playmaking to that  - not at Aaron Rodgers or Mahomes level armstrength. Good arm but not a gun for an arm.  - very good feel for the pass game and saw the field well   Justin Fields: - another high level traits player but there are concerns with him - issues with recognition, with vision, with elimination and isolation from the pocket - a lot of work to be done with him when it comes to him throwing with the needed timing, recognizing early in the down or pre-snap where the ball needs to go based on the coverage.  - can drive the ball with velocity, can make the pace throws  - needs things to be clean and defined to be consistently successful - will struggle with pressure early in his career - in Indiana game - blitzed a lot and he struggled a ton with it.  - a bit slow with what he sees - can that be improved at the NFL level?  - but... guys that can move around - they play early and they make plays off-schedule and he can do that.  - "Fields scares me a little bit" ... "which doesn't mean he won't be a good player - so many variables that go into whether a QB with good traits succeeds or fails - team, scheme, coaching... there are things to be worked through with Fields, and you never know if they will get worked through"   Trey Lance - another high level traits QB - strong live arm, excellent athleticism, twitch and explosiveness to the way he plays both as throwing and moving - gives an NFL team the option for designed run game(not quite Lamar Jackson, but we see the value of having that ability) - can make second reaction plays both throwing and running - has the athletic profile that fits the evolving mold of today's NFL QB - the playmaking dimension will get NFL teams excited - live arm, easy delivery, can drive the football. He's got A LOT of traits.  - issue - level of competition and not playing this year(not his fault but... ) - likes him better than Fields   Mac Jones - highly efficient executor and ball distributor in a really good Alabama offense - main question - how important to you are movement and second reaction ability? In today's NFL you constantly hear that this has become an essential trait.  - because Mac Jones is a bad athlete, almost no ability to play outside structure whatsoever  - very good sense of anticipation, good timing - some pocket movement, not great, but enough that it's not a negative - really good feel for throwing in zone coverage - knows where to go with the ball quickly - a lot of good mental traits, but also virtually no movement and second reaction traits.  - need to understand what he is and what he isn't when you draft him   Kyle Trask - Outstanding size, got physical presence to him, looks the part - ball distributor in a really well schemed Dan Mullen college offense - excellent ball location  - no meaningful second reaction ability , has to play within the structure  - when he gets pressured, and he couldn't do much in those situations - arm good, not great - arm strength limitations, lack of second reaction ability, poise and composure breakdowns - probably a backup in the league.   
    • Jeebus SUPERMAN.  I really don't understand your angle here.     Here is the first definition I came to on the internet of usual.   usual-habitually or typically occurring or done; customary.   You are going to actually disagree that starting QBs that get traded to teams are usally customarily offered their old number?   https://titanswire.usatoday.com/2021/02/24/indianapolis-colts-michael-pittman-carson-wentz-tennessee-titans-a-j-brown/   Here's an article today from a WR vastly more accomplished than Pittman that tends to raise an eyebrow at this too.   Now I don't know if you've been in this thread for a while.  I haven't been on the forum much, and I simply said in about the 4th post of a thread that I thought it was unusual.  
    • I actually really like this. I would add in a restructure for Kelley/Doyle, and sign a TE like Gerald Everett/Zach Ertz(if released).
    • Much too early to tell: they’ve got the draft and FA coming up. Their receivers ranked pretty high as far as avoiding drops. Campbell could have a breakout year if TY (if here) could be utilized more, their group is pretty solid. I know you don’t see it that way but we shall see.
