Chris Ballard’s last words: “The rivalry is back on”

Getty Images

Colts General Manager Chris Ballard was measured in his words throughout his Monday morning press conference as he attempted to pick up the pieces after Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels rejected the Colts’ head coaching job. And then at the very end, Ballard had something to say.

Ballard thanked reporters and then said, “The rivalry is back on” before walking away from the podium.

Obviously referring to the longtime Patriots-Colts rivalry that was the hottest in the NFL for many years of Peyton Manning and Tom Brady‘s primes, Ballard was indicating that the Colts are aiming to knock the Patriots off from the top perch in the AFC.

As for why McDaniels is staying in New England, Ballard said he doesn’t particularly care.

“I didn’t want the explanation. Either you’re in or you’re out,” Ballard said. “That’s his prerogative and that’s his choice. He chose not to be an Indianapolis Colt.”

And now Ballard will try to build a team that can beat McDaniels and the Patriots.

  1. Yawn…. 8 straight Conf championships. We definitely don’t win every year(see 4 days ago) but you calling this a “rivalry” is like saying there is a rivalry between the hammer and the nail.

    Try winning 8 games first!

  2. Colts front office is sad because they now know how it feels to be an NFL player who has to constantly deal with being hired and fired and moving his family around the country.

    Sage Rosenfels, former QB had an interesting take:

    “I wonder how many times in their franchise’s history the Colts have released a player who is under contract and who they had promised would make the team. Then didn’t. Then he had to uproot his family. Welcome to the life of one of your players @Colts.”

  3. That was the Chris Ballard way of saying, “[expletive] you and your whole organization, Pats – we’re going to spend every waking minute figuring out how to destroy you from now on. Much love, though.”

  4. Ummm. You have to start by winning your division first. Then making it to the playoffs. then winning some games in the playoffs before anything becomes a rivalry again. If we know anything about the colts its that they talk a good game and put up participation banners.

  5. It’s not you, it’s me…. You’re giving me the ‘It’s not you, it’s me’ routine? I invented ‘It’s not you, it’s me.’ Nobody tells me it’s them, not me. If it’s anybody, it’s me.

  6. The rivalry is back on? Can you really schedule something that far in advance? Because I think the Colts may be quite a few years away from being able to hold up their end.

  7. Uh, there is no “rivalry” Chris. The Colts conspired with the league office to railroad the Pats & they’re still light years ahead of your sad franchise.

  8. Patriots play the Colts at home. I’m sure McDaniels felt uneasy about going into an environment where so many camcorders and hidden microphones are placed. He’d be obsessed with trying to find them and not concentrating on the game.

  9. My sources tell me the Colts are thinking about giving Josh a little plaque with the words “Thank you for participating” on it to at least honor him for almost becoming their head coach.

  10. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow or the next year.

    But letting Jimmy G walk was a bonehead move that will have McDaniels & the Pats scraping the barrel as they did in the 1970’s.

  11. This is not a rivalry. The Colts have been trying to convince the football world that they’d be a dynasty of it wasn’t for NE but that’s just laughable when you look at the history. The Manning Colts got knocked out of the playoffs by EVERYONE. Not just the Pats. In fact no more by the Pats than anyone else.
    The Jets twice.
    The Chargers twice.
    The Steelers twice.
    The Ravens and the Dolphins knocked them out one apiece.
    They have been selling that line “if not for NE!” for nearly 20 years and some people are just gullible enough to by it hook line and sinker.

    Yawn…. 8 straight Conf championships.

    ————-

    Get back to us when the Pats can actually win something without cheating to “win” it.

  13. the Hoodie spoke…. leave and the power of the force stays here…and you go forward with out it….. Stay in NE and win more games than ever before my apprentice.

    The power of the Force………

    Oh yeah… how about a huge dose of karma….. for DEFLATGATE<<<<HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH Stupid horses

  14. Rivalry really, you need to concentrate on your division because the Jags,Texas and Titans are all better than you. But understanding your frustration Josh McDaniels does lack class, you deserve better.

  15. The Patriot Way isn’t so grand after losing to the Eagles.
    Their fans are scared to death – they see their time is about to run out.

  16. you gotta win every once in a while for it to be a rivalry…. We don’t even think about Indy since Payton left. how did that work out for Irsay???? HAHAHAH

  17. Ballard: “That’s his prerogative and that’s his choice. He chose not to be an Indianapolis Colt.”
    ————-
    So there you have it salty Pats-haters, finally an admission (albeit shabbily vague) from the whiney Colts org that nothing had been set in stone nor promised by Josh. He had yet to make a final decision and he decided against going. As to rivalry – LOL – there hasn’t been one for a decade, which is why the salty Colts started framegate.

  18. Hey Colts, you are out of your league trying to challenge the mighty Patriots. You are not even the best team in your division.

  19. Rivalry, like that between a hammer and a nail!

    I feel sorry for Andrew Luck and only wish him to recover and get back to what he was becoming pre-injury. However, as for the organization, you reap what you sow. Karma is finally getting you back.

  20. “The rivalry is back on”

    Someone should inform the Patriots that a perennial non-playoff team that they beat like a drum is one of their rivals. I’m not sure they’re expecting this.

  21. It’s always been a “rivalry”. The fact you just noticed tells you why the Pats have made it to eight consecutive AFC championships. And you haven’t.

  22. Hilarious what rivalry ?

    What’s he going to “threaten” the Pats with next, that they’ll pull the “rusty gate” play back out?

    Lolercoaster

  23. All teams want to win games. Get better and beat the Patriots if you can. It’s that simple. The Eagles did it, many teams have. When it happens with a level consistency the tipping point has arrived and the Patriots will need to get better.

  24. Here in Indianapolis people are fired up to hear “the rivalry is back on” but the problem is the reality of the Colts roster just not having the talent to compete. Let’s get that fixed and then worry about the rivalry. Just sayin….

  25. The rivalry is back on?

    Really??

    You mean you are going to conspire with John Harbaugh again to bring the Pats down?

    Or that you are going to start winning more games so that you can make the postseason?

  26. Not a colts fan but saying ballard is a class act jokingly makes your fan base as ignorant as everyone claims. Josh leading them on for this ling and verbally agreeing is the most spineless thing you can do to a franchise. They have 3 weeks to fill a staff before the combine. Heck they missed out on the senior bowl already.
    I’m hoping karma comes back around to the Pats due to jags game, tuck rule, illegal contact, deflate gate, spy gate, etc. Don’t live in the past pats fans because the low points are coming very soon!

  27. I love how the Patriots fan base is still all over the boards acting like they didn’t just lose to a backup QB in the super bowl and their team is starting to crack and is showing the signs of the hubris that usually ends dynasty teams. These guys live in a whole different reality because of Emperor Kraft.

  28. I think Mr. Ballard should focus on competing in the AFC South before he concerns himself with the Patriots.

    With Watson back healthy with the Texans in 2018, and the Jaguars and Titans impressing people with playoff wins this year, and maybe improving on that, next season could be another long one for the Colts in the AFC South with or without a healthy Andrew Luck.

  29. Patriots are 51-29 against the Colts and haven’t lost to them since 2009.

    Maybe the Colts should win that Rivalry against the Browns (17-17) before you start pretending you have one against the Patriots.

  30. I do think that what McDaniels did was dirty, but then I think of the other side. We have seen teams fire coaches after 1 year. My favorite team gave their coach an extension, and then fired him at the end of the year to get Jon Gruden. I don’t know how the contracts work, but I believe the coach receives the money remaining in their contract, so they still get paid. I don’t feel sorry for the Colts in this situation. It’s just business. I think about how teams treat some players. They may sign a player and then cut them if they feel they’re not performing to the money they are paid, they cut them. It’s just business.

  31. What rivalry? The Patriots out of the goodness of their heart even gifted you with one of their assets, Jacoby Brisset. It’s charity to the needy.

    Colts front office is sad because they now know how it feels to be an NFL player who has to constantly deal with being hired and fired and moving his family around the country.

    Sage Rosenfels, former QB had an interesting take:

    “I wonder how many times in their franchise’s history the Colts have released a player who is under contract and who they had promised would make the team. Then didn’t. Then he had to uproot his family. Welcome to the life of one of your players @Colts.”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Not even close to being similar. The player is signed to a contract with the understanding that he competes for the job. If he doesn’t make the team it is usually the player’s own fault. The veterans that sign back loaded deals understand that their shiny signing bonus and high price later on likely means they will be cut before hand. Most of them can probably tell you when they will be cut or have to renegotiate the moment they sign the deal. What McDaniels did is closer to a team signing a player and then having the doctor cite a medical condition they knew about already and void the contract.

  33. Rivalry? Since when? Colts are miles away from contending with Jacksonville, Tennessee and Houston (with Watson). Give us a ring in New England when you are ready.

  34. He should be more concerned with Jacksonville, Houston, and Tennessee. That is a strong division.

    As to McDaniels, if there were 15 hours of meetings, there is a transition plan in place that wasn’t there before when McDaniels interviewed with the Colts. It seems at one time, the Patriots were prepared to let him walk and it was the Patriots, not McDaniels, that had a change in plans.

  35. The “What rivalry?” comments are fair but in a year or two when the Pats are Brady-less and potentially Belichick-less and being led by Josh, there will be a lot of Pats fans stepping down off their high horses.

  36. gotitan..it was not about beating the Patriots..it was about doing what was necessary to achieve the objective and ultimate goal. Winning our first Super bowl. It just so happens that we had to play the pats to get it done. However, Lane Johnson did say he wanted to play the Pats, pretty boy Tom and their smug team.

    FLY EAGLES FLY!!!
    SB LLII CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD
    EAFLE NATION…OUT!!!

  37. Eveyone is tiptoeing around the fact…Kraft did everything in his power to screw Indy
    because he will never forget Grigson and his minions in the #deflategate charade…payback…pure and simple. Mc Daniels will have a job in NE for as long as he wants one in some capacity. Kraft wrote the check and now Ballard has to pay for Grigson’s Folly

    Sweet evidence man. And Pats even more impressive now than previous dynasties because its harder to sustain success with constant roster turnover. Not disputable.

    Uh no, just no. McDaniels didn’t sign anything. He went back on a verbal understanding which is the point Rosenfels was making.

  41. aka “Time to manufacture another fake cheating scandal to derail the Patriots”.

    I’d be keeping a very close eye on the balls when the Pats travel to Indy this season…

  42. Colts need to avoid 4th place in their own division, which is likely to happen. Those are the rivalries you should focus on.

    Then again, a 2018 Final Four AFC South banner would be a nice addition.

  43. Why are patriot clowns laughing at this? This is the best thing to happen, avoiding this cheating scumbag who would have sabotaged the organization. Go focus on getting owned by a backup. Foles > Tammy.

    =================

    Brady proved AGAIN he is not a system QB this year. Stop pretending you like the Pats.

  45. That must mean more lies on the way because that’s the only rivalry between these 2 in 10 years. I’m sure the NFL has Ballard’s back with anything he wants to make up.

  46. haha rivalry? Colts have gone 8-8, 8-8, 4-12 since DeflateGate. The Colts aren’t even on the Patriots radar. They wish they were good enough to be considered our rival.

  47. Patriot fans pretend to be mad at the NFL when all reality is any team that gets one penalty a game is getting a gift from the NFL and the only reason the commissioner went after Tom Brady is because he had two from pressure from the other everybody knows Rodger Goodell is Robert Kraft’s puppet!

  48. I have to believe that Kraft and Brady are loving this because McDaniels stuck it to the team which ratted the Patriots out by running to Goodell over deflategate.

    Exactly! What rivalry ?!?!!?

    Colts helped to fabricate one of the biggest frauds in NFL history. Hard to feel sorry for that franchise regardless of how McDaniels handled it.

  50. Haven’t the Jets been saying this since Belichick jumped ship. Well guess what, when you have dysfunctional management you’re not really a contender.

    ————————————————

    With 12 trips to the AFC championship game in the last 17 seasons, 8 trips to the Super Bowl, and 5 Super Bowl wins, the Patriots and their fans do live in a whole different NFL reality than the rest of you in this millennium.

    Sure you can argue the Pats coulda/shoulda lost all 8 Super Bowls, and you can argue the Pats coulda/shoulda won all 8 Super Bowls, in either case we love our reality, and our hubris.

    And so does the NFL, and message boards like this one.

  52. They ought to worry first, about hiring a coach, then surviving their division first. I think Jacksonville could remind them about what happens to teams who overlook them.

    =====

    Yes, its a shame the Colts could only beat them once, and that cheaters ended up prospering.

  55. I want him to be right but other than Brissett, this is one of the least talented teams in the NFL so the Colts must draft really well and strike gold in free agency. It helps that Ballard has the right attitude and they’re headed the right direction, but still…

    =============================
    At some point Pats fans need to realize that you just can’t fix stupid. People who still buy into the cheating angle can’t be fixed. The inference speaks for itself.

  57. Hire Bruce Arians or Tony Dungy as Executive VP of Football Ops. Good Coaches recognize good coaches. They’ll be able to fill out that coaching staff with no problem, and be able to dictate the organization’s football philosophy.

  58. A comment like this might be an indicator that maybe the GM isn’t suited to be the GM. There’s hell to pay on this, and part of it might be that the Colts didn’t have a legal instrument in place with respect to McDaniels prior to the formal contract being signed.Then there’s the announcement made before the contract being signed. Someone needs to have themselves fired from the Colts…

    Mind you what McDaniels did is low rent and he pretty much killed his chance of ever being a HC in the NFL except, perhaps, for NE – which would be his only stop therein.

    ===============

    Too bad the stats don’t back it up. Pats D never showed up. And McDaniels is going back to the Pats, why are you saying the Pats are avoiding him? Strange.

  60. Chris Ballard appears to be a solid football guy, a good GM, and has a good future in the NFL. Unfortunately his rivalry comment just digs him into the history of Irsay’s mess that preceded him. It’s a little bit of a stretch to talk about a rivalry when you have (11) former Patriots on your (53) man roster, and you are in the process of trying to poach two of the Patriots Coordinators. That’s not something that would be referred to as a rivalry, it’s more likely referred to as idolization or mimicry. When Irsay cleans up his mess, then there will come a day when there is no longer animosity between the two franchises. Hiring Chris Ballard (while it appears to have been a good move for the Colts franchise) doesn’t clean up Irsay’s mess.

  61. Try making the playoffs first. That would be the only way you play the patriots. 4th place teams play 4th place teams in today’s scheduling.

    ========================
    And Pats fans love how fan bases of other teams with a clear axe to grind somehow inexplicably fail to remember that the Pats losing a SB is far from unique. Pats fans have had the humble pie before. Quite simply it’s your own fault for mistakenly thinking it was going to get better.

  63. The AFC South is on the rise and the Colts have a lot of work to do before they look forward to the Patriots.

    The AFC Least of course remains the worst division in football and maybe all of sports. Must be nice to be in that division every year like the Pats.

    Maybe. But as a lifelong Pats fan, I’ve also seen people like you and others predict their demise over and over, and yet here they still are. Year after year, Bill rebuilds a contender. Until the Pats actually go south, I’ll keep my faith and fandom.

    Funny, as a kid when the Pats and Sox routinely got hammered, I don’t remember rooting for the downfall of other teams, I remember wishing my team could get as good as them. Different times I suppose.

  66. It must frost Ballard that Grigson would not have made this mistake: counting chickens before they are hatched. The hubris is to cover his incompetence.

    ==============
    I am no Pats homer but let’s be real. This isn’t about the Pats losing to a back up QB. This is about Foles playing one of the greatest games I’ve ever seen (and he outplayed Brady) as a quarterback on the biggest and brightest stage on earth. The Pats didn’t lose it… he took it from them.

    Give credit where it is due. Everything doesn’t have to be about the Pats. They are not the gods of football that demand our constant attention.

  68. “Chris Ballard’s last words: “The rivalry is back on””

    —–

    He really shouldn’t have said that. He doesn’t have a head coach, and the status of his QB is very much unknown. I suppose he had to say something, but with so much in doubt in regards to the Colts, he should have said just about anything other than what he did say.

    Probably because it’s debatable (at best) that Foles out played Brady. I give all the credit to the Eagles for making the plays they needed to make. I just disagree that Foles out played Brady. If (and that’s a big if) Brady managed to go down and tie up the game there would be nobody making the claim Foles outplayed Brady. And they would be right in doing so.

    The Eagles outplayed the Pats. It wasn’t dominating. It was enough to win. Which in the end is all that matters.

    Brady had a meh first half and a fantastic first 28 minutes of the second half but Foles was consistently great, dropping dimes, making great reads, slicing up that defense and moving the ball at will just like he did the week before. And he did it throughout the game. He beat Brady in a shootout. It doesn’t get any better than that if you’re Foles and the Eagles.

    Uh… deflategate? They already were spending every waking minute doing that. It backfired slightly. The Colts from this era were only ever good because of Peyton Manning. Andrew Luck decision cost them at least two Super Bowl appearances with Peyton as it turns out. Luck pick sure would have paid of a lot of defense.

    Uh, so did Brady. They both completed the exact same number of passes with 5 less attempts ?!?!?!? Foles had an Int and Brady had a fumble. It’s disingenuous to claim Foles sliced up the Pats and not make the same claim for Brady. More importantly there’s nothing statistically significant to back that claim up. Foles played great and nobody (including myself) is taking anything away from him. I’m just pointing out he didn’t outplay Brady. So yeah, there’s plenty to question about it.

  74. While I do appreciate a little bravado here and there, there isn’t much of a rivalry to speak of, and really hasn’t been since Manning left. Luck has not lived up to expectations (which I never had anyway) and the Colts never build teams around their QB. You don’t know what Luck is going to do when and if he comes back, and Pats are in turmoil right now not knowing what they’re going to look like in 2018-19. People make assumptions sure, but the decline of Brady from like week 12-17 is palpable, and the older he gets that could be even more dramatic. BB might or might not come back, Gronk, etc.

    This wasn’t about Deflategate. It probably is to a Pats fan but don’t sink to their level. This was about a d-bag guy with no character being selfish.

    If it makes you feel any better you can rest assured that Belichick is completely focused on that. But then again you should not feel good about that at all.

  76. I gotta think the info that emerged about Luck in the past few days had some bearing. One has to suspect it was different from the picture they painted in the interview. And if he has cause to think his new employers are not being totally honest with him, and especially if they are covering up factors that might make this job a very bad situation, that makes the job something you want to back away from no matter how close you were.

    And those suspicions are not without grounds. Lets face it, these are the same guys that have been steadily misrespresenting that situation for over a year now.

    Brady played about 28 minutes of MVP level football. Foles played 60. There is your difference in the football game.

    Not my fault you and all Pat fan can’t accept that,

    Well, until then, we will continue to laugh at that joke of an organization.

    They won’t even see third place in the AFC South for the next 8-10 years!

    Brady played about 28 minutes of MVP level football. Foles played 60. There is your difference in the football game.

    Not my fault you and all Pat fan can’t accept that

    I suspect not so yeah … your fault. Feel free to convince me with something other than your word though.

    Colts helped to fabricate one of the biggest frauds in NFL history.

    Yes, its a shame the Colts could only beat them once, and that cheaters ended up prospering.

    =======================

    Uh, the Colts haven’t prospered at all, not sure where your getting that. What is true, is that they admitted to illegally tampering with a Pats football by sticking a needle gauge into one during the AFCC game.

  81. Fun how an organization whose very existence is founded on reneging on an entire city and fan case is now complaining about one guy changing his mind. Classic Colts.
