Pagano talks 3-1 start, defending Russell Wilson and the play of Donald Brown during radio show

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 37-3 win over the Jaguars:

On Darius Butler’s pick six against the Jaguars:

“That was definitely the spark that we needed. We did get off to a slow start and the defense was playing lights out, consistently through that ball game and saved us early so to speak. They bailed out the other side of the ball.”

On being 3-1 at the quarter poll:

“We feel great at the quarter poll if you will. We know it’s a marathon and not a sprint. Certainly to be able to go on the road and win the two road games, and we are finding just how good Miami is. Sitting here at 3-1 four games into it, I’m pleased where we are at and where we are heading.”

On Reggie Wayne and Robert Mathis and their value to the Colts:

“You can’t put a value on it because they do so much. The fans, they see what they do on Sundays for 60 minutes or three hours real time. But what they do Monday-Saturday, in the locker room, in the facility, on the practice field, in the meeting room is invaluable. You can’t put a price tag on it. They are great, great players but they are team guys all the way. They are the most selfless individuals that I’ve been around. We’ve got a bunch in that locker room and no two better than those two guys.”

On Donald Brown and his big game on Sunday:

“Everybody knows Donald is a talented, talented running back. He’s a great pro. He had opportunities and he always takes advantage of those opportunities. We had some plays called where whether it be an eight-man box or a seven-man box, great call on our offensive staff’s part when Donald went in there. When you break us down statistically, Donnie is in there on a lot of passing downs so defensively they figure “not going to run the ball, they are going to pass the ball”. So they play coverage, don’t load the box up. On the big run, they had a light box if you will, six guys in there, split safety look and we had a trap called and the offensive line blocked it up perfectly. As we know Donald hit that hole and ran through two defenders and almost took it to the house.”

On dealing with Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson:

“The good thing is we faced two really athletic quarterbacks. Facing (Terrelle) Pryor and then (Colin) Kaepernick definitely was good for us to see and see early. Those guys can run around and Russell Wilson is an unbelievable talent. I know he has two eyes but it’s like he has eyes all over the place, in the back of his head. He’s just got that sixth sense. He feels what’s coming. He can go left. He can go right. He can spin out. He can slide in the pocket, scramble to run down the field, scramble to pass. It’s going to be a nightmare.”
