Default Re: Tomlin met with former Colts HC Jim Caldwell???

Some coach's are just better fitted as coordinators. Look at the entire Patriots staff once they left the Patriots. They just couldn't find a niche as a head coach and remain strong candidates as coordinators (Wade Phillips anyone?) Caldwell seems like the type that would stay true to our philosophy while paying more attention to detail with weakness as a coordinator. What I think will work is that he will let Ben play, kind of like Arians did since he let Peyton take the reigns for most of his time there at Indy. I believe Caldwell will give Ben even more freedom with a tweaking of the playbook, something we need as a fresh offensive puzzle.

Nothing is confirmed, but whoever it will be coming in here, I'll be excited with the change. I trust in the Rooney's more than any other so it's good to see them excited to move on as well. Good sign.
