What Does Our Team Have To Say?

ColtsPRIDE11

2,172 views

To some, this blog will be considered a few weeks too late, but I really don’t think it is…

I think in all the draft madness and Luck vs Robert Griffin III who is better talk and the release of many of our beloved players chaos many of us have lost focus on those that remain as well as the awesomeness (MO) that is our HC. We’ve lost focus on our team, and what they are doing, how they are thinking, and where we are going.

Some articles on Colts.com have some good quotes from our veterans that tell us their frame of mind…about the excitement, yes the excitement they have for the next step in what is Colts football.

SO, I'm just going to share some quotes from our veterans and our fearless leader (whose defense I cannot wait to see in action this Fall). To listen to what they have to say makes me excited…there is a reason why Reggie stayed in Indy and didn’t go elsewhere…he sees what is happening and recognizes that it is going to be greatness again. There is a reason why the FAs that have come in are excited to be in Indy…it’s a combination of Pagano and what is being built…fellow fans, we are on the verge of another era of greatness, and I for one am so excited I can’t stand it! Colts football is not dead. Quite the contrary, it is most definitely alive and well. A low rumble of a growl has started in downtown Indy fellow fans. Yes, the new shirts being worn at the Farm Bureau center in Indy speak the truth. A monster has been born…a monster will not be slayed…are you ready for the ride? … … …

"We start fresh. Forget about what happened in the past and keep pushing on." --Collie

“It’s different. It’s very different but at the same time, it’s exciting,” --Bethea

It’s exciting. Whether change is good or bad, it needed to happen and it happened I think everybody is excited to get going and move forward and compete." --Angerer

“If there’s anybody who has a chip on their shoulders, it’s us. We have to get it done...We’re here to win games, and we’re not going to fall short of our goal" --Mathis

“This is home and this is where I wanted to be. (I’m a) Colt for life." --Wayne

“I do want to be part of it, just like I’m part of the city,” said Wayne. “I just want to help build that foundation. It’s not set in stone that we’re going to (struggle). Who knows, we might shock the world. This time next year, you might be writing that these Colts are some bad boys." --Wayne

“I always thought of myself as a Colt. I came here to win. I came here to win games. I didn’t come here to fall off. The intensity is still the same and the agenda is still the same. We’re going to do everything we have to do to get to that point." --Wayne

"I like the new (coaching) staff. I am looking forward for things to get rolling, I’m ready to see how things are going to play out. I am excited about the future. I think we’ll be a more aggressive style defense, rather than sit back." --Johnson

“You have to let your coaches coach and you have to let your players play, but you have to be one step ahead of everything.” --Pagano

“They’re going to get a face-full of Chuck Pagano. Whoever we play on Sunday is going to get a face-full of Colts, and on a weekly basis. We are going to have fun doing it.” --Pagano

“That’s our goal – to win.” –Pagano

“I’ve always said the speed of the leader determines the rate of the pack.” --Pagano

“We’re going to find the strengths of this unit and the weaknesses. We’re going to put them in the best possible position to be successful and to win games.” --Pagano

“Our motto is, ‘Simple me, complex you'...Having said that, just because we line up and they say, ‘They’re a 3-4 team,’ we may be a 4-3 team on first down, we can be an odd 3-4 look on second down and the Lord only knows on 3rd-and-7-plus. That’s our goal.” –Pagano

Let’s hunt!” --Pagano

Awesome blog/post/ Like you I am excited and looking forward to the new year and changes. Have given my preseason tickets away in the past, always kind of meaningless, but will probably go this year . Like you posted these, I hadn't seen much of anything out by Pagano.

Thanks Coltsman! It's my first one, so I was hoping someone would like it :)

I would say that the preseason this year will be worth watching (something we're not used to for sure), so enjoy those tickets!

So far, anything I've read about and from Pagano just makes me more and more excited. This guy is going to make us a force to be reckoned with not only on the offensive side of the ball, but also on the defensive side...I would go out on a limb and say that in the near future our D will be in the top 10 or 5 of the NFL--something we haven't experienced...

El Poonerator, Pagano is a ball full of fire that is going to reign havoc over our opponents, and I look forward to watching him do it! If teams were watching out for Freeney and Mathis before, then they sure won't know what to do with both them, Angerer, and the rest of our talent coming full force at 'em...is say GO GET 'EM BOYS!

I'm excited as well to see the team succeed. It may be a long road, but the journey always starts with the first step.

Go Colts!

You are correct UndecidedFrog. It might take a few years to get back to where we want to be, but likewise, we could shock the world (as Reggie said) and do well right out of the gate. It is not unheard of, just unlikely. Either way, i know we are in for good things, and will enjoy the ride we're on.

Go get 'em Blue!

Nice job of bringing the fan focus smack dab between our eyes & reminding us all that the blue horseshoe will re-emerge again stronger, faster, bolder, & more fierce than ever before..."‘Simple me, complex you'."

Some Fans wanna pray not me...To me, our opponents, our enemies, our adversaries are PREY locked in the talons of a hawk or the thunderous gallop of a team of horses on a mounted cavalry charge leading men into war inside the grid iron battlefield of Lucas Oil Stadium...Bring the pain & drop the intimidation baby...Let's get ready to Rummmmmmbbbbble Baby!!!

ColtsPride11: I love this blog. Thank you for posting. With the full moon I am feeling crazier than ever!! HA HA!

I love the approach of Pagano, and we have wished for an attacking.'disguising' defense for years The quote "we may be a 4-3 team on first down, we can be an odd 3-4 look on second down and the Lord only knows on 3rd-and-7-plus. That’s our goal.”........says it all to me.

Thank you for starting my day off with a smile and some good Colts excitement!!!

Thanks for reading it guys!

"our adversaries are PREY locked in the talons of a hawk or the thunderous gallop of a team of horses on a mounted cavalry charge leading men into war inside the grid iron battlefield of Lucas Oil Stadium..." SW1, if only I could paint a vivid picture like you do. I love this sentence!

Brent, the full moon has made everyone crazy I think...Pagano just flat out makes me EXCITED! How could anyone listen to the man talk or read something he's said and not get excited???? Our defense is going to be a beast...we're gonna be a beast. Our opponents thought they knew how we were, well this year and the ones to follow will be a surprise for them! ATTACK, ATTACK, ATTACK!!! haha, just like we've wanted, right buddy?

Glad I could make ya smile :D

I can't wait to see us have a legitimate defense!! I posted in a forum the other day how glad I was we got rid of Coyer. Someone quoted me and said I need to be careful what I wish for. Well, why wouldn't I wish for this? Let's Hunt!!

I read that quote Kayla, and I bit my tongue! Things have been getting more positive. The Coyer 2 was the most lax Cover 2 I have ever seen. With new rules the defense that was Dungy's is becoming obselete...often ineffective unless attating.
