Hello Colts Family & Happy Thursday! :D

Here's some :colts: related info for you guys on this rainy Thursday.

@KBowenColts: Cory Redding on the @Colts players love for Chuck Pagano: "You want to go through a brick wall for that guy." http://t.co/46gujwjV9L

@KBowenColts: Pagano on Philip Rivers: "He's a great quarterback and he's playing at a very, very high level right now." Credits HC-Mike McCoy

@KBowenColts: Pagano on being 4-1: "We feel pretty good where we are at. I think we are just scratching the surface."

@KBowenColts: Pagano on how much he has helped his brother over the years: "Obviously none this week (smiles)." John Pagano coaches the Chargers defense.

@KBowenColts: Andrew Luck says playing on Monday Night Football has a "ring" to it. Remembers always begging his mom to stay up for the 2nd half

@CraigKColts: Team says has "no choice" but to deal with growing national spotlight.

@CraigKColts: Pagano sez Francois back today. Landry, Havili day 2 day, Walden limited and will have elbow brace.

@CraigKColts: #Colts @hughthornton72 is growing in comfort with Colts: http://t.co/p9AB11XOaU

@mchappell51: Pagano: KR David Reed. We think he's a home-run hitter. Has a lot of freedom. Make good decisions.

@mchappell51: Pagano: Luck has always had pocket presence. Good Lord gave him something He didn't give you or I

D'awwww.

 

But also very relatable...

 

My mom must've been in a very good mood considering the score that Monday night in 2003.

Still probably my favorite football memory...

I was really hoping he'd be back for the Chargers first though. No doubt Landry is a plus versus Denver either way, but I'd rather he get some more game action versus the Chargers first. Facing Peyton your first game back can't be fun?

Perhaps Delano Howell is better in coverage than Landry anyhow.

You said it! Not me!

But I have been thinking it.

BUT you have to admit they both have their advantages...

On that blown coverage against Miami, Landry chased that WR down and prevented a TD. (Plus he's just a huge badbutt.) And Howell has been playing some tight coverage, most notably against SF, if I recall.

I think it'll be really interesting to see how Howell is used (now that he's proven himself) when Landry is 100%.

It's funny that Tirico still brings that game up to Gruden whenever they talk about Peyton.  Gruden still has nightmares. haha

Yessir! Something to that effect. I don't think she was quite as happy when the game went beyond regulation, but a deal is a deal. I got to watch the end.

@KBowenColts: Manusky on Robert Mathis: Says he doesn't try and bother him too much and simply just "let's him play."

@KBowenColts: Pep Hamilton on offensive slow starts: "I've got to do a better job to get our guys in more of a rhythm."

@KBowenColts: Hamilton says LaVon Brazill is doing a "great" job at practice but won't delve into specific details on how many reps he will get on Monday

Not sure if anyone has brought this up yet....reading Mike Wells blog on ESPN this morning, he mentioned that Mathis has 9.5 sacks through 5 games.  That mark is the 2nd most in NFL history behind Kevin Greene's 10 in 1998. (He finished with 15)

@mchappell51: Hamilton: Wayne is a workaholic. A film junkie. Younger guys watch Reggie and how he goes about his work.

@mchappell51: Hamilton: Wayne. He has stuck with his process. He wants the ball every time it's snapped. Excited to see where Reggie can take us

@mchappell51: Hamilton: Reggie Wayne, 996 receptions. Approaches each day like he's a rookie FA we just acquired. He's a pros pro.

I understand we don't want to tell the artist exactly what color to put on his brush. But Mathis can be undisciplined at times with his rushing angles, even running past the ball carrier. He needs to be bothered just a little bit...

Gruden breaks out in cold sweats to this day any time you mention the word "leaping" around him.

If Landry is going to come back make sure he is 100 percent healthy.

For sure #2 is a major issue and good that Hamilton is taking responsibility for it

@mchappell51: #colts HC Chuck Pagano: S LaRon Landry, LB Bjoern Werner out. Everyone else probable.

@mchappell51: Pagano: Thoughts and prayers of #colts organization go out to Vikings RB Adrian Peterson during this difficult time.

@CraigKColts: Pagano sez at "U" he could see Reggie Wayne was elite because of talent and ethic: "We knew early on he was going to be great player."

@mchappell51: Pagano: Reggie Wayne. Takes a beginner's mentality every year he shows up. Treats every year like he's a rookie.

@mchappell51: Pagano: Wayne.Not a numbers guy. All he cares about is winning. At the end of the day, he's got those kind of numbers no one's surprised.

    • Because I’ve been a Colts fan for a long time and Jim Irsay has never had an issue spending money.  Ballard has also said over and over again he was saving his money to pay his own.  This isn’t breaking news.  So rather buy into some idea that he was fine with spending money under Tobin, Polian, and Grigson but is no longer fine with spending money under Ballard just doesn’t add up when you look at his history and what Ballard said.  It’s much more logical to assume that’s he’s spending what Ballard wants like he has with his previous GMs especially when the GM tells you he doesn’t believe in splash free agents and is saving his money to sign his own.   Irsay doesn’t negotiate the contracts.  Ballard does so contract structuring is done by Ballard and Ballard has done it in away to give him cap flexibility that is going to allow him to keep guys like Nelson, Leonard, Smith and others over the next couple of years.    Also Jim Irsay is worth 3 billion dollars he’s not hurting for money.   You want to see an organization that doesn’t want to spend money look across town where Simon won’t even let the Pacers look at the luxury tax.  That’s an owner who doesn’t want to spend.
    • I’m not sure why you find it hard to accept that the Colts may have cash flow problems?  Not that they can’t manage them, but still….   Irsay is one of the few owners who doesn’t have any other source of big income.   No high tech company.  No real estate development.   No oil and gas.   His wealth is owning the Colts.   That’s it.    Sure he may he may spend money, but these last five years he now uses a pay-go system that lends itself to managing money.  We used to give bigger SB’s under Grigson.   Now,  we give either small or no signing bonuses.   Very few teams do that.  And we’re a very small market franchise.   You weren’t the least bit surprised to see DeForest Buckner accept a ZERO signing bonus?   I sure was.     Point of clarification:  none of what I’ve written is proof of anything.   But I think it’s at least worth considering, and you seem completely unwilling to even do that.  I confess find that surprising. 
    • Just because they had money left over doesn’t mean Irsay had a problem spending it had Ballard wanted too.  It doesn’t take that hard of a look back at Irsay’s history of owner to see he has zero problem spending what his GM wants to spend.  
    • That's not exactly true if you consider cap space left over. IIRC, we had the most unspent or near most unspent over a 3-4 year period just recently (IIRC, 16, 17, 18, 19). Pretty sure we had 40+M unspent two years in a row.   IIRC, we carried over the most in the league again this year at around 30M.   It was also speculated that we 1) didn't ask Luck for money back, AND 2) gave JB such a big raise, was because we would have been too far under the 89% rule had we not done both 1 and 2.     
    • Regardless Irsay has never been shy about spending to make the Colts better.  So either way the first point that started all this is irrelevant.
