It's time to go into full tank mode  We need to get a top 3 pick and we need Sean Payton making the picks. I think Payton wants full control and hopefully Irsay will do the right thing and clean house and hire Payton as coach/GM.

If we have to trade or  pay a kings ransom to NO then so be it.

I do NOT want a coach GM combo. There’s only one franchise that has EVER made that work, that being the Patriots with Hoodie

And it’s not working so well now that Brady is gone. Dude put Patricia in as his offensive play caller…

First step....       Fire Reich (now)

Second step.... Fire Strausser (now)

Third step...      Tell Fox he'll be interim, only... And fire anyone who doesn't respond. 

Forth step...     Bring DeGug back to coach OL. Free pass to hurt feelings.

Fifth step...      Assign homework to Chris. Subject: tell us why we/he sucks. What the plan to un-suck. And who should be new HC

Sixth step..      Grade homework, and fire Ballard if needed

Seventh step.. Give Payton what he wants

Honestly, Reich and Ballard are connected. If one goes the other most likely will as well. This is a failure at all levels. Extremely frustrating because the South is not that strong and is a winnable. But we have blown the opportunity.

I don't see them connected. 

Reich was not Ballard's guy. 

 

Reich was not in 1st round interviews.

And only hired late 2nd round once we missed on others.

 

And Irsay was at min 50% part of decision on Reich. 

 

Put Payton on the sideline tomorrow, we could still win the AFCS...

Ballard signed off on him. He interviewed him. The circumstances suck, but he’s the one running the team. If Irsay was 50%, then Chris was the other 50%.

Agree.  But I am having a hard time seeing Payton and Ballard working together as an effective team.  Who knows.

I don't understand. 

Do they have beef?

Not that I’m aware of but I think Payton is going to want full control like the hoodie.  I can see him wanting that now at this stage of his coaching career.  JMO.

Honestly, if Ballard would stick to scouting and overall management I think Payton/Ballard could work. Don’t think Ballard wants that though.

Don't see him like that.

Sure, he'll want say (who would blame for him), but I don't see him as BB-like. 

 

If anything, Frank is too soft. We need a stronger, more driver type, coach... 

 

Regardless, no reason IMO to worry Ballard/Payton combo. 

He'd bring experience, and a much much better O mind.

I’m torn on this. I’ve seen a lot of Saints games, and it’s undeniable Payton is a smart offensive mind. He did however have a Hall of Fame QB playing for him and his teams seemed to continually crap the bed in the playoffs. If he hadn’t won that Super Bowl he would have been run out of New Orleans with 3-4 subpar consecutive seasons.

Frank is a nice guy and he should stay, we shouldn't be so worried about winning as long as we have a nice guy as head coach. At least that seems the attitude of Jim Irsay!

Hey, Vern ... there's yer problem!

Let me ask a reasonable question. How successful was Payton in New Orleans? In all those years there he had what, 5 or 6 playoff appearances? One sb title, lot's of post season failures. More times not in the playoffs than he actually made them. Frank has made the playoffs 2 out of 5 seasons, that is probably around the same rate as Payton made it in his career in New Orleans. So why would anyone think we could bring him here and he would suddenly be wildly successful and get the Colts to the playoffs every year? Here's a news flash folks we don't have Peyton Manning at qb anymore. Another question, how good was the Colt defense in Mannings years? I say not very good, we won because we outscored the opponents 35- 30. And when we played a team that got away with holding every offensive player on every play we lost by about a 24- 14 score. I just don't see how a coaching change will make any difference. Fifty two years of history has shown me that.

The Saints would have been in 2 Superbowls but the refs decided to let the Rams go to the SB instead. Remember?

Last 2 HC that lasted 10 years for colts have been nice guys well technically last 20 years head coaches have been nice guys from Tony Dungy Caldwell Pagano Frank. Dungy was  successful most credit goes to Manning. We need a coach who can display some emotions who can create some fire.

This sounds awfully good to me...it is too logical...maybe after we are 1-4-1 or worse they might change.

But probably they (Irsay) will waste the rest of the season instead of starting the fix-up this year.

The O-line salaries vs performance has been a disaster, especially Ryan Kelly and Braden Smith...this is on Ballard.

I wonder if Nelson will turn into an incompetent too, after getting a big payday.

Half of me - thinks Irsay is mad and serious... and we'll sack Reich. 

Other half... - thinks Irsay bull'd us with all the "chips" stuff, or is hoping a tank for the draft...

Yea, I clearly remember that I'm one of the posters on here who think the nfl isn't always above board on "fairness". It probably is just a coincidence but since Stan Kronke shelled out 3 billion dollars of his own money to build that stadium in L.A. he has gone to 2 sb's, one with Jarrad Goff at qb.

We can only hope that the most bold move by the team is not just cutting the kicker. There is a sufficient body of work here to base decisions on.

Reich is clearly not the answer as the coach,it’s time Mr Irsay to fire him.If the Colts want to try and win anything this year they will get rid of this guy,the fan base,media,and I think even the players know he flat out stinks.

Yup. Plenty of body.... 

Maybe we'll cut the long snapper?

Reich didn’t cause Ryan to fumble.

Of course he didn't - he is causing $hitty first halves with his high school play calling and leaving far too many points on the field with his ridiculous let's go for it on 4th down plays instead of taking the 3 points like a lot of smart coaches do.....

 

The team has been flat every game dating back to the Raiders game last year......that is a by product of losing the locker room and his voice isn't being heard anymore.

    • I've watched him a few times. Sometimes I think what you've posted here, but increasingly I think this kid might be pretty good.  I think the Bears have a pretty good one here. 
    • I do not want to fire Ballard.   I think he is an excellent talent evaluator and i expect him to learn from his errors.     That being said and to answer the question, i've always liked tom telesco.  He was mentored by polian so i would look at his staff and who he has trained.  
    • Kellen Moore is another one as well. Did you see the way they used Ceedee Lamb? They had him all over the place.   I’m not disagreeing with you. I just posted that for context since it is floating around out there. Like it’s hard for me to believe that Ballard (who is very gun shy when it comes to trading up in the 1st or drafting QB’s high) really had this plan to get Fields all layed out, and then Reich/Irsay demanded that he scrap the plan and go get Wentz instead.    There is reason to believe that sometimes Irsay has his hands on things though. Getting rid of Wentz and hiring Saturday definitely have his fingerprints on it. Honestly I sometimes think the “Reich wanted Wentz and Irsay wanted Ryan” thing is sometimes Ballard’s last remaining fans trying to give him a pass on so many missed shots at QB. I feel like those are the same people who insist there was no way the Colts could have traded up for Herbert or Tua in 2020.
    • Have you ever considered adding to this conversation?     
    • Not the answer, he stinks. This is what a lot of people don't take into account, THE DRAFT IS A CRAPSHOOT. Many in here were wanting Herbert in hindsight after the year he had last year. Herbert has a 20-22 record as of now and has a good team around him. Statistically he was much better last year, he has regressed. Baker went #1 in the draft and he isn't any better than Jacoby Brissett IMO. Some in here admitted they wanted Leaf over Peyton. Russell for the Raiders was a can't miss according to most - he was so bad that it was laughable and he went #1. Brady was the greatest all-time steal ever because that never happens getting someone like him in round 6. You can get a guy that is similar to Mahomes with a mid round pick if you do you homework but that is still rare. Fields is MEH, Bears can't even beat an over the hill Rodgers at home.
