Reich said the right things; Now it has to show on the field

INDIANAPOLIS –   The Indianapolis Colts introduced their new Head Coach Frank Reich on Tuesday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium.  Frank came onto the stage and said all the right things that the fan base and local media wanted to hear. 

The hard part is now having this Colts team go out there and show it on the field.

Reich comes to the Colts for a 2nd time after helping lead the Philadelphia Eagles to a Super Bowl championship.  Reich has led the likes of Wentz and Foles last season to one of the most prolific offenses last season.

Reich said that this Colts team will be a “quick, up-tempo” offense and will speed it up and also when needed slow it down.

Colts fans have a reason to be excited with what Reich said and where he WANTS the Colts to be.  Everyone sounds good in their press conference, but its the actions in the locker room and on the field that will yield the results. I’ve seen several Colts fans mention on Twitter how excited they are for the Reich Era and Jason Spears below agreed with the majority.  Former Colts QB Peyton Manning weighed in his thoughts below as well.


Frank Reich joins the Colts again after being in Indianapolis 2008, Reich served as an offensive assistant and quarterbacks coach.  After Tony Dungy retired following the 2008 season, former Colts quarterback coach Jim Caldwell took over as head coach and Reich became the new quarterbacks coach.  Reich switched to wide receivers coach in 2011 but was dismissed when the entire coaching staff was released after a 2-14 season. Reich takes over a program that could have QB Andrew Luck coming back after a major shoulder injury and the #3 pick in this April’s NFL Draft.  Reich won’t have much time to get acquainted with his office due to the NFL Combine being in a couple weeks.  The Colts will have a lot to look at with the #3 pick and where they want to go.  Do they look at Barkley at RB or do they work on improving the defense?

Frank Reich is wasting no time filling his coaching staff.  The new coach added an important component to his staff: offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni. There has been no official announcement from the team, but Mike Sirianni, Nick’s brother, confirmed the move via Twitter.

“Well. We (my family) are now officially Colts fans,’’ Mike Sirianni posted Monday evening. “Anyone want to buy some Chargers gear??!!’’The decision of Reich to buttress his staff with Sirianni isn’t a surprise. Reich was also on the Chargers staff from 2013-15; the first year as quarterbacks coach and the next two as offensive coordinator.

Either way, Colts fans definitely have to be excited with the new culture that Reich will bring in. The question will be can that culture grow within the rest of the organization and players and bring back winning to Indianapolis and future Super Bowls.  Buckle up…the Reich Era has begun and I’m excited to see where it goes to!
