With the whirl wind of events that are taking place in Indy right now, I have to say as a Colts fan I'm excited about then hiring of chuck Pagano. That means new defensive philosophy. No more 260lbs DTs. Yes Colts fans. We are finally going to have some real defensive tackles. I just read a report on ESPN on who might be possible candidates as OC for the Colts. According to Samari Rolle, Chuck and former Raiders HC Hue Jackson worked together in Baltimore back in 08-09. http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/tag/_/name/colts-hire-chuck-pagano I have to admit I had been playing with this scenario in my head since the day Jackson was let go by the Raiders. For those of you who aren't familiar with him, Hue Jackson is one of the most innovative offensive minds in the game. He's well respected around the league. His track record speaks for itself. Every QB he's coached has improved dramatically under his tutelage.
Hue Jackson would be an excellent OC for Andrew Luck to learn from. If this indeed happens the Colts will field one of the most dynamic teams on both sides of the ball the league has seen in years. I'm really anxious to see how he uses Freeney, Mathis, and Bethea as well as who he will bring in to compliment them. Although I don't think he is going to turn the Colts D into the Ravens D overnight, I do think he has the brains to turn them around the same way Philips turned around the Texans. These next few weeks are going to tell even more as the rest of the staff is filled out. Keeping my fingers crossed for Hue to be joining us next.
