Bob Irsay was perhaps the most volatile owner in NFL history — and the stories back it up. His son saw it all. Jim Irsay, like I’ve never heard him, on the firings, the move, the demons and the fight within himself to be the owner his father never was:

What are the Colts losing with Matt Eberflus heading to Chicago, and where might they look to replace him? There are lots of good options. @HolderStephen digs in:

Sources close to Josh McDaniels feel very strongly about his chances to land with the Raiders. This connection has been building since last week. Still needs to go through the interview process and align with the right GM, but there's momentum.

For Bears fans, wanting to know about their new head coach: Matt Eberflus’ coaching philosophy was first shaped by his father, who told him early on: “Don’t ever disrespect the game.” He also knows his system isn’t for everyone:

Bears fans and media: I hope you’re ready to hear a lot of “alignment, assignment, key and technique” over the next few years.

The sense I’ve gotten: there will be a lot of interest in the Colts’ DC vacancy, and when it comes to candidates, I bet the they look beyond just the staff in-house. Some big names out there, and this is talented unit, with the likes of Buckner, Leonard, Moore and others.

A year after losing Nick Sirianni to Philly, Colts lose another coordinator: Matt Eberflus to Chicago. Flus has built a very sound defense in Indy that’s been top 10 four straight years (w/o having an elite pass rusher). Traits: hustles, tackles well and limits explosive plays.

Colts assistant GM Ed Dodds set to interview in Las Vegas today. #Raiders just interviewed Titans national scout Ruston Webster & Steelers Pro Scouting Coordinator Brandon Hunt, as NFL Network said, & hope to talk to Bucs VP of Player Personnel John Spytek soon. 8 candidates.

By my count, this is just the second position coach Reich has let go after a season in his four years (the other was OL coach Dave DeGuglielmo in 2018).

News with @HolderStephen : Colts defensive line coach Brian Baker won't be back next season, source said. Could be more changes coming, too, if Matt Eberflus gets a head coaching job. Currently a finalist in Chicago and Jacksonville.
