Default Clyde Christensen will be in Peyton Manning's ear

The Colts have given Manning a new OC. We've all taken for granted that Manning calls his own plays, certainly after "suggestions" come through the helmet. It will be interesting to see if this changes at all.


Quote:
We previously noted that the Indianapolis Colts have promoted Clyde Christensen to offensive coordinator, but that former offensive coordinator Tom Moore is staying on the staff as senior offensive assistant.

Chris Mortensen reported on ESPN this morning that it's a more significant change than simply changing the titles of two assistants on the staff.

According to Mortensen, Christensen will now be the coach whose voice Manning hears on the speakers in his helmet, a different voice than Manning has heard throughout his entire NFL career.

"For the first time since Peyton Manning became the Indianapolis Colts' quarterback in 1998, Tom Moore -- and I'll say the great Tom Moore -- will not be the one calling plays in Peyton Manning's ear," Mortensen said on SportsCenter. "It will be Clyde Christensen, who now officially becomes the offensive coordinator. Moore, in essence, will be involved in game planning, but on game day, Clyde Christensen will be calling plays."

Mortensen added that Christensen plans to "tweak their offense a little bit."

Manning has more control over his team's play calling than any other quarterback in the league, so he may be less affected by a change in coordinators than most quarterbacks would be. Then again, if Christensen wants to take some of that control away from Manning, that could have a major impact on the league's reigning MVP.

You can't put this genie back in the bottle. Peyton Manning calls the plays.

Nothing will change with Peyton. He's the most successful component to their success. Don't fix what ain't broken!

Moore is 71, so this is probably just a step in getting a successor a little more direct experience.

Any Colts' OC's job is to get the rest of the offense on page with Manning. You don't fix what ain't broken and you certainly don't break what doesn't need fixing.
