This was in a discussion on not having to put pads on every day for practice now

Colts Put on Pads-The sixth practice of the 2011 training camp marked the first time Colts put on pads as head coach Jim Caldwell’s team hit the field for a two-hour practice Wednesday evening.

After playing only three games the past two seasons because of injuries Anthony Gonzalez is more than ready to be back in the stable of one of the deepest receiving corps in the AFC. Gonzalez played in the 2007 National Championship game at Ohio State and believes that college training camp put him into the position he is in today. “At Ohio State we were on a two then one schedule, a double then a single,”

Gonzalez said. “My last year we were full pads the whole time it felt like. We were hitting, it was brutal. I remember getting my bell rung every day by Donte Whitner on the same play over and over again, saying, ‘When is this going to stop.’ I was blocking a bubble screen and he would just fly down and try to destroy whoever was blocking him. That was every day for two and a half weeks.” Down in the trenches

    • You can’t help those who are determined to complain no matter what.  
    • I mean calling things what they factually are that’s a real spin job by you lol.
    • I think the confusing part for me is the utilization. This is it for Campbell. This is his final season to prove he belongs in the NFL and right now the colts are not doing him any favors if their not even attempting to get him into space and let him work. 
    • I’m not sure you and I are watching the same defense.   Through 3 games the Colts have played 12 quarters and one full 10 minutes overtime.     IMO, the Colts defense has looked good for 5 quarters and the OT.    I’d say the 4th Q of the Houston game plus the KC game. But the defense was unimpressive for 3 quarters of the Houston game and all 4 quarters of the JVille game.   So that’s 7 bad quarters versus 5 plus good quarters.   That’s hardly coming attractions for a #1 defense.    Compounding your argument our pass rush is a long way from being a top 10 rush to be feared or respected.   They will likely get better this year but enough to help make this the number one overall defense?   Right now this feels like you’re watching our games through Blue tinted glasses.     Hey, I’d be thrilled if you’re right, but for right now,  sorry, I just don’t see what you see. 
    • There were a bottom 2ish to start the season...  They lost to Wentz... and a bad WA team. They beat a bad team, Indy, who let their QB set a new career high again (now twice). Totally out coached.  They beat a highly ranked team, with a QB broken ribs lol... who only goes as a far as QB takes them.
