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.

    • Would be a good deal for the Pats, not the most unbelievable trade either.
    • You ask a lot of good questions.    Unfortunately, I don't think that I, or anyone else,  has a lot of good answers.   Here's what I think we know.   Over The Cap has the Colts with just over $26 Mill.   Spotrac shows less,  and after the Carrie signing, I think we're going to be at $22.4 or so.   I also think we'd like to find a way to thread the financial needle and sign both Houston and Ertz (as a FA).   Even if you allowed $12 Mil for that, (Houston $7 mill and Ertz $5m)  that would leave us with roughly 10-$12 mill, give or take.   Currently, with our 6 picks,  Spotrac shows that will take roughly $6.5 to sign them.   But we all know Ballard has never had a draft class with less than 8 picks,  so expect two more, and that will bring the money needed to sign them to roughly $8 Mill.   Suddenly, we'd be down to $2-4 Mill and change.   Now, this is the part, where I don't know if @w87r  will step in for more financial adjustments that will show that we will have a few more $ than my math shows.    He's a wiz that way!      But typically, teams want 5-10% in reserve for in-season transactions.   BUT....   can you afford to have that much in reserve when your cap has shrunk to $185?     Yes?    No?    I don't know?     Who knows?   So....    lots of questions that need answers....    and we just don't know?    Both Houston and Ertz look like situations that might not resolve themselves until May......    So, we're left hanging....  
    • I vaguely remembered something like this but misremembered that I saw it on Hard Knocks so figured it couldn't haven't been the Colts.   Now that you mention this though, I think you're right.
    • OK....    I thought what I was saying was pretty obvious, but perhaps not,  so I'll try again....   If Chris Ballard wants to blow up and destroy everything he's spent the last 4 years building, I can't think of anything that would do it better than what you suggest.   I'm NOT saying CB should give Q and Darius blank contracts and say "fill in with the numbers you want"....   but CB will re-sign them and they will be big and generous contracts done without a lot of public fighting (unless someone gets WAY out of line with what they're asking.   But I'm not expecting that.)   Ballard has built a franchise built on culture.   We talk about here.   The team talks about it non-stop.    It's buzzing all over the city of Indianapolis.   It's even now buzzing around the NFL.    To suddenly play hardball with your best players, or worse,  trade them because they don't play the right position,  would literally destroy what he's built.   Blow-up the locker room.  Undercut  the relationships Frank Reich has with his players.   The rest of the team would see how we treated Q and Darius and think....   "why should I play hard for this franchise?   F*** them!   I'll ask to be traded the first chance I get."   In case you haven't noticed,  players demanding to be traded has caught on in the NFL.   It's not just for basketball or baseball anymore.   Ballard would lose all credibility with everyone.   He'd have wasted his 4 years here.   Reich would be screwed.   The front office would be furious.   Irsay would likely want to fire him.   It would destroy this franchise.   Final thought....    since you love to throw around what Belichick does....    deal with this...   when the Patriots were winning Super Bowls and making deep playoff runs year after year...     do you know who some of the top players were, besides Brady?     Logan Mankins,  offensive guard.   Rob Gronkowski,  Tight End.    Vince Wilfork,  Nose Tackle.  Donte Hightower, Inside linebacker.    Four key players.    All paid very well.    All Belichick favorites.    None, with the possible exception of Gronk played a sexy, glamour position that you obsess about.       I expect to agree with NONE of this.    But as someone who covered the NFL for 30 years as a member of the media,  and has followed football as close as I could for 25 more years (55 in all)  this is my judgement what would happen if Ballard would do what you suggest.     Sorry.    Good luck.....  
    • There are a few national writers who have speculated that Justin Houston will sign elsewhere either during or just after the draft. A fair question if that happens is: what are the Colts’ remaining options?  1. Sign someone like Melvin Ingram or Ryan Kerrigan. Not very good options, but I’d take Ingram.  2. Draft at least one DE early. This is the best and most obvious option, but after the second round, the pickings are going to be slim. So it will have to be a Day 1 or early Day 2 pick.  3. Roll with what you’ve got. Ugly option to even think about.  Conclusion: At this point, the Colts’ pass rush is seriously hurting if Houston isn’t resigned. Ballard of course knows this. Here’s hoping there’s a breakthrough in negotiations pre-draft, because signing Houston gives the team flexibility in the draft.  If the Colts allow Houston to sign elsewhere, given that this is a weak DE draft class, the Colts are putting themselves in a position where they HAVE to get a top DE early. And that could have them reaching Day 1 to make sure they do. To avoid that, give Houston a sweetener in the offer and get him signed!
