Interim head coach/offensive coordinator Bruce Arians sat down with ‘Voice of the Colts’ Bob Lamey on Monday to talk about a variety of topics. Here are a few highlights on what Arians was pleased with from the Jets game, Andrew Luck’s resiliency, a preview of the Browns and an update on head coach Chuck Pagano:

On the play of rookie tight ends Coby Fleener (four catches for 42 yards) and Dwayne Allen (two catches for 33 yards) against the Jets:

“First game they both played without a mental error. They played fast and they made plays for us.”

On what Arians sees from quarterback Andrew Luck’s ability to bounce back from mistakes:

“He’s got the grit in his eyes every time you talk to him. He knows exactly what he did wrong. Before you can tell him, he’s telling you and he’s really ticked off about it. And normally it doesn’t happen again. It takes a special personality. That’s the beauty about him.”

On if Arians has talked to head coach Chuck Pagano and if so, how is he doing?

“Right before the ball game, he had his best night he said since he’s been in. Talked to him twice (Monday) and he’s had a very a good. I know there’s going to be another down period coming but right now he’s doing very well.”

On a preview of the Browns, who won their first game of the season on Sunday 34-24 over the Bengals:

“They’ve been in every ball game. Took the Giants to the wire, took the Eagles to the wire, beat a really good Bengals game at home. They are playing extremely good football. They are younger than we are so youth obviously is no excuse this week. We have two rookie quarterbacks going against each other. They are a very talented young team. (Defensive coordinator) Dick Jauron does a great job defensively of keeping it very simple, playing an attack style, a Cover 2 team.”
