This is good new for Luck in Fleener as Hamilton is very familiar with them from their days at Stanford. Also should help Allen since he like lots of two TE sets

Not hammering on the hire but he better step it up from the Rose Bowl he called vs Wisconsin. I understand he's not out there playing QB as a freshman etc.,. but having Toilolo and Ertz not involved more was troubling to see. Wisconsin's D was a touch under-rated in '12 but not crazy good however, leading up the the game and then watching it play-out I would've certainly made those 2 TEs stars of the game and walked away with a stronger win than 6pts. He could've made a cushion and a possible statement imo but didn't.. was very odd to me. Luckily Phillips crapped the bed.

“If we can keep the one-trick ponies off the field, it just puts a lot more pressure on our opponents defensively to try and anticipate what it is that we want to do,” Hamilton said.

“We like the versatile guy, the guy that can present the conflicts.


Many times last season Colts tight end Dwayne Allen was used in an H-back role and even saw some time carrying the football.


The days of a big, bruising, pure run-blocking fullback in the NFL is fading. A player like the 255-pound Allen still caught 45 passes to go along with his prowess in the run game.

“I think if you just look at the versatility of Dwayne Allen and his ability to line up in the backfield and lead block, or detach and line up in the slot and win the one-on-one matchup, that’s a tremendous weapon that you want to have in any offense,” Hamilton said.


“I think we have tough, smart offensive linemen,” said Hamilton. “We have receivers that can win the one-on-one matchups. We have tight ends that are versatile. I’m a big fan of versatile tight ends and having those things in place, and we have some good, young runners that can move the pile.”

“I think the personnel that we have now, the guys that we have on campus, we can go out and execute the offense the way that we ultimately want to execute the offense,” Hamilton said. “Mr. Grigson and Coach Pagano, they choose the pieces, and I piece the puzzle together to score some touchdowns on game day.” colts.com

New OC Pep Hamilton talked up free agent WR Donnie Avery Wednesday.
Hamilton appears to be operating as if the Colts will re-sign Avery despite an inconsistent, drop-plagued 2012 campaign. It's a situation for T.Y. Hilton advocates to monitor closely. Hilton will be a breakout candidate no matter what, but if Avery does return the two could share some of the situational deep threat work.

Everything I've been reading has been nothing but positive in regards to Pep Hamilton.
Obviously reducing the 18 interceptions will be job #1 for Luck.
Luck's running ability (255 yards, 5TD's) makes him even more appealing in fantasy drafts.

He's going to be one of my targets in a deep QB field. It's going to be interesting to see his ADP range later in the off-season.

What do you guys think of luck this year? I noticed he's ranked very high on the projections at #4 over Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning. I know he's good, but what is the reason for him to be ranked so high?

There appears to be an error in the default scoring system. Currently they are awarding 4 points for an interception, instead of negative 1 or 2 points.

In my main league scoring system, Luck is 10th.

T1 (1-3) - Brady, Rogers, Brees
T2 (4-12) - Newton, Wilson, Griffin, Ryan, Kaepernick, Manning, Luck, Stafford, Romo
T3 (13-15) - Cutler, Dalton, Manning

Oh, ok. Thanks for explaining that. Based on that list, I would love to get Kaepernick. I think Luck will good this year too though. What do you think?

From January in the other Luck thread.

Hamilton is a logical target for Indy because he worked closely with Andrew Luck in 2011, and in 2010 was Stanford's wide receivers coach. The Colts' likeliest alternative would be to stay in-house with QBs coach Clyde Christensen. Christensen called plays in the Wild Card Round, when Arians was ill. Per Mort, the Colts are interviewing Hamilton on Friday.


Best thing could happen to luck imho


Nothing changed for me, im still onboard.

Hamilton > Arians in terms of suiting Luck's game

Luck has every tool to be an elite qb. If he stays healthy, i see no reason for him not to make the top 5..at some point, and bounce around in there each year.

I'm with amish. The tools are all there, and the surrounding weapons aren't so bad. I'm waiting a long time on a QB this year, and Luck is part of a fairly sizable group I'd be happy to end up with.

They didn't draft him #1 to run Vick Ballard 30X's

top four is definitely reaching... I'd put him in the range of 6-10 depending on the scoring system. Probably another high volume/high int year ahead. Some wonder how his play-action is coming along, would he do well handing it off, and pretending to do so? Doesn't seem so initially. hah, sure wasn't asked to do that much last year. If you see him struggle early snatch him up in dyno though. He should remain top ten for a while.

Avery goes back to hypes early days. For the life of me I don't know how he keeps it up.
