No... this will be me

From WTNP Episode 3:  We want a guy who wants to be coached, wants to get better, has high character, and has something you can point to that makes him unique. Is it me?  Or do these traits all a

To be fair, Rivers had a terrible season before coming to Indy and Reich said he could fix Rivers and he did.    Before that Reich got Andrew going on a return from injury and a long time wi

is it random?

Thought it was every other week... Might be completely wrong also.

That article is great.  I hope the organization promotes or keeps knickerbocker on staff!

Yeah im thinking the same.

Maybe he had some skin cancer issues or something and had them removed. Otherwise that was kind of weird.

That was my first thought.

Episode was not really draft related, centered around Carson and TY for the most part. 

As expected with the end of the first episode.

Great to really see that connection and get to know him more. Beautiful daughter! Makes me miss those days when mine was little... Enjoy it Carson, it goes by way too fast.

Yeah, looks similar to what my wife’s eyes looked like after her skin cancer surgery. Hopefully he’s okay.

I am sure he is. They can catch that early now:

 

TY’s laugh at the end had me rolling.

Wow, seeing Carson and Frank absolutely GUSH about each other has me super excited for next year lol. I knew they were tight, but

This episode makes it seem like more of a Reich/Wentz bromance than a carefully and logically crafted player acquisition. And the bromance appears to be a lot more about religion than football. That's worrying to me.

To an extent I can see why you'd be worried. But also, look at it as, every quarterback who's played under Reich has had a great year. So the Synergy and chemistry is most definitely a good thing alot of times. Plus they're realistically tied at the hip, if it doesn't work, Reich will be gone too.

Technically it is since we gave up a 3rd this year for Wentz.

Pretty indifferent to the Reich/Wentz relationship but if it makes both of them more successful then I welcome it. Best part of the episode for me was TY. Guy has been a stud for us for so many years and to see him excited again makes me happy. He was crushed when Andrew left and his production obviously suffered but I really do believe him and Wentz could do some fun things.

 

Will be exciting to watch, let's hope for a fantastic year! We are certainly setup for it with the talent and front office support this team has.

Just because they didn't share with you what Frank thinks of Wentz as a football player, and what they plan to do to bring him back to the high level of play he had in the past....    doesn't mean there isn't all that information somewhere.   They just didn't share it.   

 

If you want to not think much of this episode of the series,  that's fine.   Others seem disappointed too.   I just wouldn't let it bother me that they didn't break down more of the football relationship and aspect of the decision to trade for him.    I don't think it's an issue to worry about yet.   It may be someday....   but I don't think there's reason to worry just based on this one video chapter.

 

Just my own view of this....   your mileage may vary....

I loved this episode.  To be honest, I wasn't impressed with the first one.  JMO.  That laughter by TY is priceless.  I'm excited about the Wentz to Hilton connection.  Looking forward to our offense this year!!

Why would that worry you?

He’s saying that reich possibly pounded the table to get Wentz in more based on his fondness for the person rather than based on the likelihood that Wentz will have a resurgence in his career.

 

Which would be worrying indeed if that is the case. But we don’t know that.

    • i dont know where your getting the information irsay would not let him fire chuck or wanting the 3-4 defense .   watching a couple of interviews of ryan after getting fired he claimed jim irsay was hands off and let him make his own choices .  ryan hired chuck because he wanted to and he was a fan of the 3-4 defense .  jim has always been hands off with his stafff only giving advice .  ryan clearly said he wanted to make things work with chuck and chose  not to fire him .   after ryan was fired jim let chris ballard make the choice on chuck , just like ryan made the choice on jim caldwell .    chris ballard knew luck was not gonna be ready until maybe the end of the 2017 season so he wanted to keep chuck in place to tank for more draft picks to trade back .
    • Year two is where we should really see him hit his ceiling. We are going to have to have a little patience with him this first year until everyone gets used to each other. I think he will be good this year bur 22 is where it should really click.
    • I simply don't know how much authority he ever had.  I'm not sure anybody does.   It sound like he was simply a guy who was plucked out of a job In Philly, maybe having narrow duties, but did not have the managerial instincts and NFL connections to be able to assemble a non Polian staff.    Still, did Irsay help him in this aspect or just let him sink?   It always seemed like a weird authority structure.  Starting right off with Irsay handling the PM situation, deciding to draft Luck, wanting a 34 defense, not allowing RG to fire Pagano, and I wonder who made the call to either keep Arians or Pagano after the ChuckStrong campaign but the team flourishing under Arians.  Not that there was a real choice, but I always wondered if Irsay and Grigs had a talk about that after season 1 and what each thought about each coach and why.
    • We were in a great spot to trade up for Herbert. But we only had two teams we could of traded with. The giants and I believe the lions.  They may not have wanted to trade. Then that means we Would not of gotten Buckner. I think Herbert would of been able to win right away with this team. Character wise he was the perfect fit too.
    • One thing that stuck out was he said he didn’t have a good supporting cast around him helping him make decisions. Irsay would of given him anything if he asked. This is why Ballard is so good. He surrounded himself with great people who keep him accountable. He even said the assistants and scouts at the end of the season get to review his job performance as a GM. He said they bust his balls lol.
