Offensive Minded HC Discussion

Why you don't think a WCO fits Cam? It's get him out on the of pocket with the roll outs, it cuts the field in half, and most of all it will fix his intermediate throws especially the 10 to 15 yds ones he tend to over throw.

because it's an unnecessarily complicated offense that takes 3 years to learn, esp. @ QB (and no, vick didn't learn it. they switched to a spread to accommodate him) and the verbiage is horribly long.

teams are leaving it.

very few remaining who use it.

i want no part of it.

Yea and it sure as hell isn't working out for them lol

Colts will get bitchslapped out of the playoffs. They've feasted on a weak schedule:

The Colts already have won five more games this season than they did in 2011. At first glance, it's easy to credit that improvement to their new quarterback, but that progress has as much to do with dumb luck as it does with Andrew Luck. Although three of Indianapolis' losses have come by 20 or more points, each of its seven wins has come by seven or fewer points. And these aren't powerhouse teams the Colts are beating, either. Those seven opponents have a combined record of 31-46, and only one (Green Bay) would qualify for the playoffs if the season ended today. The Colts have spent most of their season playing just a little bit better than some of the worst teams in football.

Contrast that with our losses:

@ TB

vs NYG

@ ATL

vs SEA

vs DAL

@ CHI

vs DEN

vs TB

All teams in the playoff hunt, only one of which has a losing record (5-6 at that). NYG, ATL, CHI, DEN and one of SEA and TB are definitely getting in. And we lost 6 of those 8 by 7 points or less. Colts just have better dumb luck than we do.

Arians is doubling as an OC and a head coach, and going 6-2 while taking control of a team on the fly. They reeled off a 4 game winning streak at a certain point this year, and have you checked the talent on this team? They've got a handful of good starting players on their roster.

Yea they'll probably get routed if they make it to January, but how often do you hear of an interim head coach rallying a team to a playoff berth?

The Colts record is a more a reflection of their schedule than anything else. There's a reason Arians "retired" from the Steelers - they didn't want him. What does that tell you?

Yea that 19th ranked Pittsburgh offense really justifies their decision not to retain him

i think what's really happening in indy has more to do with pagano and the team rallying around him than what arians is doing although even at that arians is doing well with the situation.

i've said in another thread about him that i just can't see arians going anywhere next year. i'd be surprised if pagano was healthy enough to make a full recovery or at least enough to get back to work full time and even at that, arians might be too valuable an asset to that team to be let go.

Arians hasn't been coaching in this league for an eternity to do a great job as an interim head coach and then quietly step back down and keep his place in Indianapolis while like 5-7 teams are looking to hire head coaches this offseason

I wouldn't mind an offensive oriented head coach... simply because we haven't ever had one and it's fairly obvious nobody on the coaching staff has a clue what to do with Cam, DeAngelo and Stewart at the same time.

I'm not beyond promoting Shula to OC.

hence the skip for McCoy haha

I understand Cam isn't the most accurate at those short throws and he may not be the most ideal fit in a WCO.

Dennison though really intrigues me. Love his resume and especially how the Texans are built. If we pull in a WR at the top of our draft and get another TE/FB type, we could run a similar offense. Most importantly, that would be the exact type I would trust to build a long term offensive line plan.

I know this is an offensive coach discussion, but I'd rather have Wade from the Texans if we get anyone.

As far as offensive coaches are concerned... Mike Sherman is a name I'd throw in there. Very good coach at Texas A&M, and has the offense of the Dolphins playing decent, even with the struggles of their offensive line.

But, like Mister Love said already, I think it's Bruce Arians > everyone else.

And by greater than everyone else, I mean there isn't even a close second... for miles.

The qualities that make a good head coach have nothing to do with particular offensive or defensive philosophies of a coordinator just like being a spectacular coordinator does not make one a good head coach.
