New Colts Coach for the next year: Pete Carmichael Jr.
First I will like to say that I still consider myself a Colts fan, every Sunday I watch the Colts game hoping for a beam of light, hoping that the team I cheer for it´s going back to the ol´ ways (for those that have forgot I mean the "winning ways"), and hoping to see a pass defense that can stop at least one pass (and I’m not exaggerating). Of course there are a lot of positives that I’ve watch during this season, to give you some examples, Pat Angerer and Kavell Conner combo, Curtis
Cobain Painter "breakthrough", Anthony Castonzo improvement of the OL, Drake Nevis as a potential "QBKilla", Delone Carter as a real power-back and Pierre Garcon as a potential #1 receiver. Another positive for all these season is that Peyton Manning has shown all critics that he is the best QB of all times .
Now of course that at 0-7 the most obvious negative thing of the season it’s the coaching department. And to be honest I never liked Caldwell as a coach and was because of a comment given by Peyton during the first off-season without Dungy. He said something like "I haven’t seen a lot of coaching out there" or something like that (please correct me if I’m wrong and if any of you fellow bloggers has a link for an article related to this, please post it below in the comments). This brings me to the topic of hiring new coaches to Indy (both head coach and defensive coach). And my first candidate for HC is Pete Carmichael Jr.
You might ask: who’s Pete Carmichael Jr.? Well, if you were watching last Sunday night game, you might remember that Coach Sean Payton wasn’t on the field due to a knee injury, so who was the guy that was calling the plays for the N.O. Saints? Who was the coach that "outcoached" our team"? The answer is Pete Carmichael Jr.
Pete Carmichael Jr. is in his third season as the Saints’ offensive coordinator after tutoring the club’s quarterbacks the previous three years. Throughout this time he has been a key figure in the planning and preparations of an offensive attack that has been ranked first in the NFL in yardage in three of the last five seasons, while leading the league in scoring for the 2008 and 2009 campaigns.
In 2010, the Saints finished third in the NFC and sixth in the NFL after averaging 372.5 yards of total offense, while finishing third in the league in passing, averaging 277.6 net yards per game through the air. The unit converted a club record 48.8% of their third down conversions and finished second in the conference and fifth in the league with 351 first downs, the second-most in club record books.
So I encourage you my fellow bloggers to post comments about who do think is going to be a good Coach for Indy. And remember
Keep Calm and Kerry on at least if we are ‘lucky’ we can draft a really good QB prospect for next year’s draft and if we don’t have ‘luck’ with a QB there still are good talented players out there.
