  1. From the article about his lifelong stutter: ..."In his speech therapy classes with a handful of other students, Pittman learned to pause and speak more slowly to draw out his thoughts and minimize the chances of a stutter."... ..."Not that Pittman isn’t a thoughtful interview; he’s evolved into one of the public faces and leaders of the Trojans because of his honesty and insight. But his pace is just a way of keeping the stutter at bay."...
  2. Not really. Everyone was like, "Oh, okay. He might be good". There was never a Pags love-fest. The love-fest started with his illness and #ChuckStrong. Before that, he was kinda a mystery.
  3. A 33 year old leader is not the same person as a 40 year old leader. In terms of understanding one's own self and your own influence over others, 33 years old is not a grown man. Getting there, but not a wise leader. Just not. In terms of professional careers, 33 years old is just getting started... ...yet someone gave him complete control of a billion dollar product. What happened in Denver is on Pat Bolen and and Joe Ellis. But Bolen wanted exciting, different - he wanted a wonder kid who was opposite of Mike Shannahan. He got it. The outcome was foreseeable and predictable.
  4. Either Pagano's system, or his inability to hold his coordinators accountable to perform to his standard, led to the Colt's poor performance. The things he 'wanted' the team to do were incongruent with what the team was actually able to do - and he was unable to adjust. Ever. Players might have loved playing for him, but the Colts under his leadership did not game plan well (at all) and he personally did a poor job of managing the Xs and Os well enough in game situations. The Colts, with Chuck Pagano as the head coach were constant under achievers. That is why he is no longer the head coach.
  5. That was a valid point last year; a point I made myself many, many times. This year, it is a tired refrain. Even if Chuck becomes Bill Belichek someday, he is in the wrong seat on the wrong bus at this point in his career. As an organization, it is clear that Chuck and the lieutenants he has surrounded himself with are not up to the task of achieving that which they are paid to achieve. This team is out of position and under performs with Chuck Pagano as its steward. Time to move on from the Pagano era.
  6. I thought she was not good. Even going so far as mentioning NCAA when she meant NFL. She was confused and incoherent at times. Not good.
  7. Brad from Greencastle: With the overhaul of the roster complete, but the results the same, why can't we change head coaches now? The question is, should it be Chud or Phillbin who becomes head coach, starting tomorrow?
  8. That might be true, but Barkevious Mingo was signed by Chris Ballard this year.
  9. Indianapolis is not Baltimore. Unless some heinous potential eminent domain chicanery were taking place that could force the team to have no other recourse but to seek a new home, unless some situation like that existed (which it does not now exist), I would feel hurt and betrayed were the Colts to leave Indianapolis. I would likely not continue to feel the same affection for the organization if that were to happen.
  10. I think you can chalk it up to a few 'Swing and a miss' moments by Grigson. He tried. He just wasn't good at it until he used nearly an entire draft's worth of draft capital to make sure he didn't miss. Too little, too late.
