Colts Daily Headlines: September 26th Edition

Posted by Kevin Bowen on September 26, 2013 – 8:33 am

It was back to the practice field on Wednesday afternoon for the Colts. Today’s news look at the stout Colts defense, the can’t overlook attitude of the Colts and the play of the team’s offensive tackles.

Take a look below at the top pieces from Thursday, September 26th.  

Dominant Colts defense gets Jaguars next

By: Michael Marot, Associated Press

Sunday’s defensive blueprint could not have been better scripted for success.

Now the challenge becomes turning that in week-in-and-week-out.

Cory Redding finally got a chance Wednesday to start talking about the Colts defense on his terms.

Aggressive. Physical. Dominant.

Over the past decade or two, those three words have largely been missing from Indianapolis’ defensive lexicon. After last weekend’s impressive breakout performance at San Francisco, they become trendy descriptions.

Now the Colts (2-1) just have to prove they can keep playing this way, week after week.

“That’s what we always try to do,” Redding said. “It ain’t playing bad one week and good the next or good one week and bad the next. You want to play good football every week.”

Colts using mouse traps as a reminder

By: Mike Wells, ESPN.com

0-3 or 3-0, the Colts are treating the Jacksonville Jaguars like they would any other opponent this week.

“It’s a big week for us,” Pagano said. “We know what our ultimate goal is and the easiest way to get into the (playoffs) is to win the division. So our guys understand the importance of this game and this week.”

The Colts are tied with Houston and Tennessee atop the AFC South with a 2-1 record.

The Colts were in a similar situation last season. They came from behind to beat the Green Bay Packers 30-27 only to turn to get blown out by the New York Jets the following week. Quarterback Mark Sanchez only threw for 82 yards, but running back Shonn Greene ran for 161 yards and three touchdowns in New York’s 35-9 win.

Castonzo, Cherilus offer long-term hope as tackle bookends for Colts’ O-line

By: Mike Chappell, Indy Star

It’s a topic that isn’t receiving a ton of attention but Chappell looks at the success of the Colts two tackles, both who figure to be key cogs for a long time.

Exhibit A: Gosder’s work against Miami defensive end Cameron Wake. One of the NFL’s most disruptive pass-rush threats was a non-factor in the Dolphins’ 24-20 win earlier this month. Wake’s line on the stat sheet: 0 sacks, one tackle. He entered the game with 45 1/2 sacks in 63 career games, including 2 1/2 the previous week against Cleveland.

Exhibit B: Castonzo’s work against San Francisco outside linebacker Aldon Smith in Sunday’s 27-7 Colts’ win. Smith brought a daunting resume with him to Candlestick Park – 37 career sacks, including 19 1/5 last season – and was virtually neutralized by Castonzo. Smith had five tackles, but zero sacks and wasn’t credited with any pressures.

That’s what top tackles are supposed to do.

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS MAKE CHANGES ON PRACTICE SQUAD

Posted by coltsindianapolis on September 25, 2013 – 5:38 pm

The Indianapolis Colts today signed wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers and running back Kerwynn Williams to the practice squad and released wide receiver Danny Coale and running back Miguel Maysonet from the practice squad.

Rogers was originally signed to the Colts practice squad on September 2, 2013 and was elevated to the active roster on September 19 before being waived on September 24. In three collegiate seasons, he posted 139 receptions for 2,100 yards and 21 touchdowns in 36 games played. Rogers played two seasons at the University of Tennessee (2010-11) before transferring to Tennessee Tech for one year (2012).

Williams was selected by the Colts in the seventh round (230th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. At Utah State, he finished seventh in school history with 2,515 rushing yards on 382 carries. He also totaled 22 rushing touchdowns and five receiving touchdowns. Williams’ 6.6 yards per carry average ranks fifth in school annals and his 22 rushing touchdowns ranks seventh all-time.

Coale, 6-0, 187 pounds, was signed to the Colts practice squad on September 19, 2013. He was originally selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the fifth round (152nd overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Virginia Tech. Coale spent a majority of the 2012 season on the Cowboys practice squad before he was placed on Injured Reserve on November 26, 2012.

Maysonet, 5-10, 210 pounds, was signed to the Colts practice squad on September 16, 2013. He was originally signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent on April 29, 2013 before being waived on May 20. Maysonet was then acquired from waivers by the Cleveland Browns the following day and waived on August 30.

Eye on the Prize: Week Three

Posted by Kevin Bowen on – 9:00 am

Each week Colts.com will take a look at the rest of the AFC South and review the previous weekend’s games.

Here is a look after Week Three:

Ravens 30, Texans 9

-In a game pitting 2012 AFC divisional winners, Ed Reed’s return to Baltimore concluded with a win over his old team. Houston led 10-6 late in the second quarter but an interception returned for a touchdown by linebacker Daryl Smith and a punt return for a touchdown by Tandon Doss changed momentum in a hurry. Baltimore took a 17-9 lead into halftime and running back Bernard Pierce, who was starting for the injured Ray Rice, scored on a one-yard touchdown early in the third quarter to give the Ravens a 24-9 lead that they would only add on to in the final frame.

NEXT GAME: Seattle, Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EST

Titans 20, Chargers 17

-In perhaps the most exciting game of Sunday, Titans quarterback Jake Locker threw a 34-yard touchdown pass to rookie wide receiver Justin Hunter with just 15 seconds remaining. The comeback for Tennessee began with 6:07 to go in the fourth quarter when kicker Rob Biroans connected on a 37-yard field goal to bring the home team to within four points. For the game, Locker was 23-of-37 for 299 yards and two touchdowns (one rushing). The Titans gained 458 yards of total offense with wide receiver Nate Washington (138 receiving yards) and running back Chris Johnson (90 rushing yards) leading the way.

NEXT GAME: New York Jets, Sunday at 4:05 p.m. EST

Seahawks 47, Jaguars 17

-The early season struggles for the Jaguars continued on Sunday playing in a hostile road environment. Seattle jumped out to a 31-0 lead on Sunday afternoon. Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne was 18-of-35 for 235 yards but was sacked three times and threw two interceptions. Pro Bowl running back Maurice Jones-Drew rushed for 43 yards on 19 carries and a touchdown. Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts led the team with eight catches for 143 receiving yards.

NEXT GAME: Indianapolis, Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EST.

2013 AFC South Standings

Houston 2-1

Indianapolis 2-1

Tennessee 2-1

Jacksonville 0-3

Colts Daily Headlines: September 25th Edition

Posted by Kevin Bowen on – 8:36 am

Tuesday’s off day for the Colts came with a quiet news day minus a pair of roster moves. Today’s news looks at the unheralded play of Delano Howell and the disciplined nature the Colts have played with after the first month of the year.

Take a look below at the top pieces from Wednesday, September 25th.  

Delano who? Colts reserve safety Delano Howell quickly makes name for himself

By: Phillip B. Wilson, Indy Star

Starting for LaRon Landry on Sunday afternoon, Delano Howell had some extra motivation in his first NFL start.

When CBS had its TV production meeting with Colts coach Chuck Pagano to advance Sunday’s game at San Francisco, one question was to be expected: Who will start for injured safety LaRon Landry?

The answer was a surprise: Delano Howell.

“They were like, ‘Who?’ ” Pagano said Monday, a day after the Colts’ 27-7 win over the 49ers. “I made sure I told Delano that before the game started.”

Not that the second-year safety needed incentive to play well in his first NFL start, but Pagano’s motivational ploy resonated.

“It definitely fired me up,” Howell said.

Colts not beating themselves with penalties

By: Mike Wells, ESPN.com

The Colts have been extremely disciplined in 2013 as the team’s seven penalties are the fewest in the NFL by four penalties.

One of the reasons the Colts are 2-1 is because they aren’t beating themselves with penalties (outside of the illegal shift call on receiver Reggie Wayne that took away tight end Coby Fleener’s touchdown against Miami). The Colts have only been called for seven penalties this season, which puts them at the top of the league in that category. The 49ers, meanwhile, have been called for 29 penalties on the season.

“Just shows that our coaches are doing an outstanding job and our players are doing a great job of playing with proper fundamentals and technique and playing smart football, playing great situational football,” Pagano said. “We talk about the enemy being in our camp. It’s not necessarily your opponent. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot.”

Pagano talks winning the trenches, Reggie Wayne, Delano Howell and his best road win ever

Posted by Kevin Bowen on – 9:31 am

With the regular season back in action, the Chuck Pagano show returns hosted by ‘Voice of the Colts’ Bob Lamey on Monday nights.

Here’s some of the highlights from Pagano’s show on Monday night following the Colts 27-7 win over the 49ers:

On running the football 39 times for 179 yards on Sunday:

“We’ve talked about it ever since we stepped foot into this building that you’ve got to be able to run the football and stop the run. It just builds your team, your mindset. The offensive line did a phenomenal job. Samson (Satele) not being able to go, Mike McGlynn stepping in at center, (Jeff) Linkenbch being ready to go at guard, the rookie (Hugh Thornton) at left guard, our tight ends, our backs, (Stanley) Havili, give them all credit. They did a phenomenal job. We said it was going to be tough sledding and it was. We said we weren’t going to be upset with a one, two, three-yard gain. It’s like Pep (Hamilton) says, ‘Invest in body blows.’ To win games like that against physical teams, on the road, you are going to have to be able to pound it, run the ball 30, 35, 40 times maybe, especially late in the season.”

On Reggie Wayne yards after catch and five receptions for 63 yards:

“He must have found the fountain of youth on the way out there (laughing). I’m yelling the whole time, ‘Get down, get down. Protect yourself. Protect yourself.’ He’s a warrior. The young guys in this organization, I keep telling them day-after-day-after-day, ‘Get in this guy’s hip pocket and emulate exactly what he does on a day-in, day-out basis.’ The veteran guys, they know what it takes to win football games like the one we were in yesterday and they play well every week. He sure stepped up his game yesterday and made some huge plays there late.”

On the Colts defense forcing seven punts and two turnovers against the 49ers:

“It’s swagger. It’s attitude. It’s expecting to go out and play well and they expect that. Obviously this is going to be a huge shot in the arm, confidence, all those things. Bob, we talk about it all the time, ‘Next Man Up.’ That’s why we beg and plead with these guys that are backup guys, might not be starters now, ‘you are one play away’. Everybody on that 53-man roster, the taxi (practice) squad, you prepare like starters because you never know when someone is going to get nicked up and you are going to have to be called to duty and perform at the same level.”

On Delano Howell’s play in starting for LaRon Landry:

“During the production meeting, they are asking me who’s going to start in place of LaRon (Landry) and they are like, ‘Who?’ I said, ‘Didn’t you guys watch any preseason games?’ And I told Delano the same thing so that kind of lit a fire under his rear a little bit. He prepares. We saw what he can do in the preseason and he earned that start by doing the things that he’s done since he’s been here. It was great to see him go out and play at a high level.

“He’s always in the right spot. No game is ever going to be perfect but he’s one of those guys that’s first in, last to leave. Takes a lot of pride in his game, studies, prepares, and again that’s why he was able to go out and play at a high level.”

On a 20-point road win against the NFC Defending Champions:

“I’ve been apart of some great ones. But again coming off a loss, traveling as far as we had to travel, we talked about that, I think this was huge on many levels. It’s probably as big a road win as I’ve been apart of. Just looking at the guys in the locker room, the players and the coaches and seeing their faces and just the sense of pride and accomplishment…because no one gave us a chance. We can go back and look at all the pregame shows, all the paper, all the writers, like last year, nobody gave us a chance to do anything. Nobody gave us a chance to go to Candlestick and win that football game and the only ones that believed were the guys in this organization. It was a great, great road victory.”

Colts Make Roster Moves

Posted by coltsindianapolis on – 9:05 am

The Indianapolis Colts today signed free agent defensive end Lawrence Guy and signed tackle Xavier Nixon from the Washington Redskins practice squad. The Colts will have to make two additional moves to reach the 53-man roster limit.

 

Guy, 6-4, 318 pounds, rejoins the Colts after being waived by the team following the preseason finale against Cincinnati. He spent the 2012 season with Indianapolis after being signed from the Green Bay practice squad on September 3, 2012. Guy totaled 21 tackles (15 solo) and 1.0 sack in nine games played. He was originally selected by the Packers in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL Draft, but spent his rookie season on the Injured Reserve list.

 

Nixon, 6-6, 314 pounds, was originally signed by Washington as an undrafted free agent on May 2, 2013. He was waived by the Redskins on August 31, 2013 before being signed to the team’s practice squad the following day. Nixon appeared in 46 games (33 starts) on the University of Florida offensive line. As a senior in 2012, he earned All-SEC honors after playing 11 games with eight consecutive starts at left tackle. In 2009, Nixon was part of a Florida offense that ranked No. 3 in the nation in yards per carry (5.59), yards per play (6.97) and total yards (6,410), earning him freshman All-America recognition from CollegeFootballNews.com and a selection to the SEC All-Freshman Team.

Colts Daily Headlines: September 24th Edition

Posted by Kevin Bowen on – 8:37 am

The Colts enjoyed a Victory Monday to begin Week 4 of the regular season. Today’s news looks at Andrew Luck’s decision-making on his six-yard touchdown run and how the Colts earned Sunday’s 27-7 victory.

Take a look below at the top pieces from Tuesday, September 24th.  

Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano heard ‘sucker’ at end of play call on Luck’s TD run

By: Curt Cavin, Indy Star

While Andrew Luck might not admit it, that fourth quarter six-yard touchdown run might have been No. 12’s doing on the bootleg.

Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano didn’t know Andrew Luck was going to keep the ball on a key third down at San Francisco’s 6-yard line in what became Sunday’s game-winning touchdown. But he wasn’t surprised.

That decision is what focused, winning football players do, and Pagano had field full of them in the convincing win over the 49ers.

Instead of deferring to a running back, Luck hid the ball on his hip and rolled around the left side of the line for the walk-in score. Not even left tackle Anthony Castonzo knew Luck was coming his way.

“All I heard was ‘sucker,’” Pagano said with a laugh during Monday’s media briefing at team headquarters. “Long play call and then I heard ‘sucker’ at the end of it.

“As soon as I saw him in the end zone and (spiking) the ball, it felt awesome.”

Colts’ win just like they drew it up

By: George Bremer, The Herald Bulletin

This was what the Colts new regime has envisioned for some time now.

When he was hired nearly 21 months ago, Pagano said he wanted to field a team that hit hard for 60 minutes on both sides of the ball. He wanted to play an old-fashioned smashmouth style that would leave an impression on opponents long after the final gun. And, most importantly, he wanted the team’s performance to be something its fans could take pride in.

On Sunday, in every facet, it was mission accomplished.

“Great team win,” Pagano told the media Monday at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center. “Great win for this city. Great win for our fans. Great win for the organization. Unbelievable. But we all understand it’s a marathon, it’s not a sprint.”
