he was indeed. He was also mannings QB coach the first three years he was in the league. I think it's safe to say that those are probably the three most crucial years in a young QB's development ... his stats went something like this:

1998 Colts ATT. 575 COMP. 326 %. 56.7 YRDS. 3739 TD 26 INT 28 RATE. 71.2
1999 Colts 533 331 62.1 4135 26 15 90.7
2000 Colts 571 357 62.5 4413 33 15 94.7

If they are going to play four wideouts, the OL better be improved.

I think it's great that the playbook has been streamlined, Arians has the right idea.

I questioned the Ariens promotion at first considering his history in cleveland, but he definatly sounds like he is making some good moves and he is saying all the right things, im actually excited about 4 wides on 1st down now!

It really makes it easy to defend against us. It also makes it easy to start tee-ing off on the qb.

So come out 4 wide. Put run plays in with it. Come out 2 wide and throw a bomb. the more the other team has to guess, the better off we are.

I remember feeling the same air of predictability toward the end of Noll's reign. Cowher came in and in one year that all seemed to change. Hopefully, we can get out of that rut and put defenses on their heels for a change.

Wilson is farrrr from capable...he is average at best...one of the most telling stats about him is that in his career with the steelers ..he has dropped as many passes as he has caught....and Washington has been in the system long enough that people shouldnt still be using the "potential" label when talking about him
