Tom Moore coming back, again

Friday night’s Cooter-included announcement from the Colts didn’t mention the future of long-time offensive coordinator Tom Moore, apart from the fact that Clyde Christensen now has Moore’s job.

Phil Richards of the Indianapolis Star reports that Moore will return for the 2010 season, as a senior offensive assistant.

Last year, Moore and offensive line coach Howard Mudd retired, ostensibly due to changes to the league’s pension system.  They thereafter returned as consultants, but they landed in the same positions they previously held.

Moore joined the Colts in 1998, the same year quarterback Peyton Manning was drafted.

  1. This is old. Moore is not even an OC, he is window dressing,,,, just like Jim Caldwell is, and Tony Dungy was. Everyone knows Manning is the QB coach, Head Coach, and Offensive Coordinator.

  2. “Everyone knows Manning is the QB coach, Head Coach, and Offensive Coordinator.”
    Except when he blows it in the playoffs, then it’s someone else’s fault.

  3. Clyde Christensen is bad for Manning. When Clyde was OC for the Bucs under Dungy, it was run, run, pass, punt 80% of the game, offense never got better than high 20’s ranking. One of the reasons Dungy got canned was because Dungy didn’t want to fire Clyde. The guy will put a crimp on Manning’s style. If it ain’t broken….

  4. The Colts have been lucky to have the same offensive system for Peyton’s early years. Continuity like that is hard to find and is a big reason for the success of the Colts and the Patriots.

    All Caldwell had to do was stay out of Manning’s way, which he failed to do. And look what happened when the window dressing tried to be important.

    Oh, I didn’t realize Caldwell made that interception!

    Casey, you just validated Cro-Mags argument. So Caldwell’s whole involvement in the SB was just limited to the play with Mannings’s INT.
    lol, at least Manning didn’t need to call out the lineman in public and throw them under the bus like he did last time. This time he had his GM do it.

    All Peyton had to do to win the Super Bowl was what he always has to do-be nearly perfect because of a flawed team around him. No other qb would have SNIFFED the Super Bowl with the worst running game in the league like Peyton did.
    Unfortunately, he came up short in the Super Bowl. But that doesn’t change the fact that he was the ONLY reason we were there.

  9. Tryagain,
    If you want to be accurate, you should say “Oh I didn’t realize that Caldwell ran that piss poor route”.
    Caldwell got in Manning’s way when he pulled the starters vs. the Jets.
    Nice one hounds…
    Manning is simply the best qb to play the game and that kills the haters….
