McDaniels Turns Indianapolis Down

Page 3 of Per Schefter and Garafolo. He accepted, then changed his mind. Crazy stuff. Wonder if Belichick is considering retirement soon?... 72 comments | 2305 Views | Go to page 1 →

    a} Easier to stay where you are than move both organizationally and personally.
    b) In the long run New England a better ownership position than Indy.
    c) If it were me, I'd rather live in New England than Indy.
    d) I read a great tweet that stated the Indy organization is deflated by this.

    McDaniels is a big part of the Patriots success and will not have a problem getting a head coaching job somewhere else if that is what he chooses to do.

    I would argue the Colts are better off with this move. Not sure why they wanted McDaniels in the first place. I would think we learned all we needed to know with his complete failure in Denver.

    The difference is Cleveland has remained a complete failure since. Denver won a superbowl like 3 years later. I mean the dude drafted Tebow in the 1st round.

    So drafting Tebow in the first round was a good decision?

    I dont think Belichick was a failure in Cleveland. Didn't they go 11-5 and win a playoff game while he was there?

    Bengal fans would take a waterboy in the first round if it meant actually winning a Playoff game the next year! So yeah, it worked out fine for them.

    I mean, the point of the game is to win playoff games, right? He did that when he was given a shot. I'm of the belief that Tebow was not given a fair shake in the NFL, but that's a topic for a completely different thread we've had on here far too many times.

    He's toast the way he jerked people around.

    Are we seriously taking the position that it was a good decision because they won 1 playoff game that he started?

    I can see there isn't any point in continuing the debate if this is seriously where your mind is in regards to McDaniels.

    I really like Tebow and wish there were more out there like him in regards to humans. But as a NFL QB, he was garbage and they wasn't changing. He just couldn't make the throws and his accuracy was terrible. He made a huge mistake not changing positions coming in.

    I think McDaniels is better off in NE where he won't have to rebuild the whole culture of a team. It is already in place in NE. Yes, it is a tough act to follow (the success of BB), without the main tool BB had (Brady). But what HC doesn't think he can do it? They all have a big ego to think they can lead an NFL team to success. NE will be the shortest distance to success that McDaniels (or any HC) is going to see. I think it is a good opportunity for him.
