The press conference was set for 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, and the Colts were arranging the grandest stage to introduce their new head coach.

The Eagles All-Pro center stepped to the podium at the team’s victory parade and celebration in downtown Philadelphia, and in a speech that lasted more than four minutes, he mentioned almost every player and coach on the team who had been dissed in some way this year … or any year for that matter. By the end of his epic rant, Kelce was dropping so many F-bombs that NFL Network bleeped out the final 30-plus seconds of his speech.

This wasn’t going to be conducted in the media room at their training complex. No, something this big had to be produced at Lucas Oil Stadium, because only its vast expanse could contain the occasion.

So what’s the appropriate venue for this news — that Josh McDaniels had reversed his decision to accept the Colts’ head coaching job after all that had been arranged, after several assistant coaches reportedly had been hired by the team and signed contracts.

“The biggest issue with Josh McDaniels’ first go-round as an NFL head coach came down to power,” Chad Jensen of the Mile High Huddle told StampedeBlue this month. “Denver owner Pat Bowlen gave McDaniels executive/personnel authority, which was too much for the inexperienced and immature coach.”

Yep, that was it.

As it turned out, it didn’t take another lifetime to see another coaching decision more boneheaded, more overthinking and outsmarting of one’s self. Until further notice, or until a concrete, logical reason surfaces, Belichick topped Carroll and everybody else who has ever coached in this game in sabotaging his team — in a game which could have been won or lost on twists far smaller than this one.

Between both teams, there were two missed PAT attempts, two missed two-point conversions and a bobbled snap on a missed field goal. One of the only two turnovers happened on a pass batted into the air by the receiver trying to make an acrobatic catch. Two Eagles touchdowns survived replays. The Patriots played the last three quarters without Brandin Cooks, who was knocked out of the game with a concussion.

“I just thought if I could be in that situation, I really wanted to do anything I could to help them through life. I think I’ve always taken that approach in my coaching career,” Patricia told in December. “It’s about getting to know (players) as individuals and caring about them as people first and foremost and their families and really honestly whatever Ido to help them from Cheap Jerseys a standpoint to be successful, whether it’s on or off the field, that’s probably my No. 1 priority.”

Positive quotes about Patricia’s personality and coaching ability are scattered all over the internet, but we know actions speak louder than words. That’s especially the case with Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping New England’s head coach.
