Another offensive coaching job for Reich to fill. So far Sirianni has taken Gannon, Patullo, and now Michael with him.

 

 

I thought league rules kept other teams from poaching coaches for lateral positions. Wonder if his contract with the Colts was up

Wonder what players follow Siranni ? Marlon Mack ? Pascal ? T.Y. ? Rhodes ? Autry ?

Eagles are in a bad salary cap situation (second worst in the league), so if any follow, it's likely because we passed, and they are cheap.

 

Overall, I find it a bit interesting that several are leaving Reich for what looks to be laterals.

50-70% off all Colts coaches. 

Sale ends soon.

 

Right now, we also have Eberflux, TBD!!! :) 

 

Eagles, our Buckeye players Campbell and Hooker, buy one get one free (Hooker comes free as a FA), and the price you pay is Fletcher Cox!!! haha

What's interesting to me is, aside from the....... Assistant OL coach??? Apparently Reich isn't too worried about keeping any of these guys....

I don't think we really know how he feels about losing these guys. He certainly doesn't really have much of a choice. Even if he's mad or whatever, he's not going to say anything negative.

Agreed. Probably offered more money

IDK. They cold also simply be looking for a change in scheme.

Going to be interesting to see what Sirianni's O looks like.

Why would he take a lateral move to Philly?

Maybe more money?

Maybe a friendship with Sirianni?

Maybe a family connection near Philly?

 

There a number of reasons why someone moves laterally.

I think the Eagles r a dumpster fire.

The cap situation is ugly, and the roster is a tough situation. I think that's why they gambled on Sirianni. That, and they really needed to try and fix the Wentz situation. On the other hand, if the OL stays healthy, and Wentz can be fixed, things might not be all bad. Cap and roster will be tough going regardless the next couple years.

As far as I know, the team can block coaches from making lateral moves, right? Which means that they are letting them go to the Eagles?

Existing teams can block most meetings, even promotions (unless it's a HC or GM spot). Teams rarely block guys, as it's just bad for morale though. If you block a guy, it's almost certain he's gone anyway when his contract is up.

I'd say Rhodes is best bet cuz of Gannon, and maybe Mack, Depending if he thinks he'd get more split touches there. Pascal I cant imagine Colts dont tendered him high enough, he is worth it

Not sure the Eagles can afford Rhodes. If they could, I'm sure he'd want to follow. They do need help at CB though. And Slay has a huge dead cap hit, so they really can't dump him (new contract last year).

That would be the only thing I could see hurting their chances. The only plus we still have Williams so may be a reason we could hang on

Also a very winnable division.

Yeah, but does it say anything about the leader?

Good question.     Once too many jump ship, you have to assume there is a reason.

I was wondering how effective TE coach Jason Michaels was & if the Colts might let him go after the season.

Now he's gone anyway. Thou they could have told him he wouldn't be retained. I don't know.  

 

I just think the TE group kind of under performed this season. Not sure if it was coaching, the system or the players weren't very good, but I thought they didn't get enough receptions out of MAC or Burton. 

 

Per FFToday.com rankings Burton was ranked #24; MAC #27 & Doyal #35. Based on targets, receptions & yards. 

No blocking input. I hope they can add a free agent like Hunter Henry, Jonnou Smith or Gerald Everett to the mix. 

Jordan Thomas who was added as a reserve future guy may have some promise. 

 

Peace

Things are going to be very interesting. Even if we lose some key FAs, there are a lot of teams with bad cap numbers, so there will be a plethora of FAs on the market, and probably a ton of teams looking for trades to unload contracts.

The division could take a big step forward in short order though. Dallas with Dak back will be better, or even if they go with a FA like Stafford and dump Dak. WFT is a good team minus a QB. Giants could go either way. WFT is in good position on many fronts (cap, roster, etc.) and could surprise folks in the next two years if they can solve for QB.

    • TRADE 9:   Steelers get pick No.111 from Jaguars via Bengals Jaguars get pick No.128 and No.140   @EastStreet @NFLfan
    • Hey everyone.  I wasn't able to commit to participating in this, but have read through all the rounds of the draft you've done.  I don't follow college football overall that closely, mainly watch IU games and other big games I'm able to watch.   Just wanted to thank you all for educating me on this year's draft prospects so I'll be able to watch the Draft with a bit of knowledge on some of these players.   It's really helpful when I see names in the draft that I've read about on these mock drafts.   Again, thanks to all of you!  GO COLTS!!!
    • Honestly?    I have no idea?   I think this may be unprecedented...   a QB dealing with epilepsy?    I think it’s unknown.   My fear, is that teams don’t like Big Question marks at that position.   I wouldn’t begin to know.   I hope for the best...  (but I fear the worst — draft wise).  
    • I don't understand the bolded one.   Why do this.     https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/31303703/nfl-owners-approve-replay-change-other-new-rules-2021-season Approved a relaxation of rules for the numbers that players of certain positions can wear because of expanded practice squads. Running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, defensive backs and linebackers can all wear numbers in the single digits now if they choose. Based on preexisting NFL rules, players who want to change their numbers this season will have to buy out the inventory of the NFL's manufacturing partners. This wouldn't apply to players who give notice in 2021 that they want to change numbers in 2022.   Approved a one-year experiment in an attempt to make it easier to recover onside kicks. In 2021, the receiving team on kickoffs will be limited to nine players within 25 yards of the ball. Last season, NFL teams recovered only three of 67 onside kicks, the lowest total and recovery rate since at least 2001. As a result, the Philadelphia Eagles proposed that teams be given an option to gain 15 yards on one offensive play from their own 25-yard line to retain possession after a score. Tabled a rule that would have expanded the area where players are prohibited from blocking below the waist. McKay said that there is enough support to pass the rule now but that several teams had questions that will take some time to address. It could be revisited next month. Eliminated overtime in preseason games.   Changed a rule that will now force a loss of down if two passes are completed behind the line of scrimmage.   Approved a rule change that ensures the enforcement of all accepted penalties during successive try attempts, defined as an opportunity for a team to score one or two additional points during one scrimmage down.   Did not act on a "spot or choose" proposal from the Ravens for the winner of the overtime coin toss. In that scenario, the team would have the option to choose either which team will have the first possession of overtime or where the ball would be spotted.   Decided to include taunting among its points of emphasis for 2021. McKay clarified that the emphasis would be directed not at celebrations but toward acrimonious interaction among players.   Tabled a proposal from the Buffalo Bills that would have pushed back interviews for general manager and head-coaching positions until after the championship round of the playoffs and would have prevented hires until after the Super Bowl. It will be further studied.   Completed a study of the sharp drop in offensive holding during the 2020 season. McKay said that Walt Anderson, the NFL's senior vice president of training and development, would clarify the standard and put together a video for teams to consume before the 2021 season.
    • Need to edit something: the only restriction I had was driving. I couldn't get a license until I went at least 6 months with no problems. Then I had to get a doctor's permission to try for a driver's license.
