The Colts announced that they had signed Josh McDaniels to be there Head Coach. But now league sources have announced that McDaniels claims he will be staying in New England. What could this mean? A report inside the Patriots has informed us that Kraft made a huge play over the last couple of weeks to keep McDaniels in New England. Another big factor is that McDaniels didn’t want to uproot his family.

Either way, Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick have once again gotten one over on the Indianapolis Colts. But let’s face it, getting one over on Colts owner Jim Irsay is not usually something that’s difficult to do.

The Colts are not being caught completely unprepared, however, as they have been lining candidates up over the last 24 hours just in case McDaniels was to have a change of heart, which of course he has.

Who could replace Pagano now? We have been told of at least two possible candidates: one is Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub and the other is former Seahawks Offensive Coordinator Darrell Bevell. I would not consider either to be a very good choice but the Colts are now left to pick through everybody else’s scraps. Toub is very close to Colts G.M. Chris Ballard and don’t be surprised if he is named the new Head Coach very soon.

I do not think losing McDaniels is a huge loss for the Colts because there are a lot of doubters, including me, when it comes to his ability to be a Head Coach. But remember, this is a Colts organization that had already hired assistant coaches who were ready to work under McDaniels.

Did Kraft do this on purpose to the Colts? Doubtful, but with Kraft you never know.

Can the Colts dig out of this mess? Probably not, but I think they would have been in trouble with McDaniels as the head coach also.
