Pagano talks play of Hilton, Thornton, Mathis before looking ahead to 49ers match up

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:

On the play of T.Y. Hilton with six catches for 124 yards: 

-“He’s a special, special player, an athletic guy, a competitor. That ball that he caught going over the top of (Brent) Grimes, that’s a special play. We saw him make those all through the second half of last year. It was good see him to get back involved, more than the first ball game. We’ve got to do everything possible to try and create plays and get him the ball as much as we can.”

On the play of Hugh Thornton filling in for Donald Thomas:

-“He did play well. It’s never going to be all well, especially for a rookie, but he came in and again he’s knocking a lot of rust still because he missed most of training camp and the preseason with that ankle injury. This is the first time he’s really getting significant reps so to speak. He’s prepared mentally during the time he was out. He came in and did a nice job.”

On the 24-hour rule after losses:

-“You’ve got that sour taste in your mouth. You really don’t get rid of it until you line up the next Sunday and hopefully get that taste out of your mouth with a victory. The 24-hour rule, you try like heck to put it behind you, obviously win or lose. You have to do that. You have to move on so that’s what we are going to do.”

On Robert Mathis with 94.5 career sacks:

-“He’s like a fine wine, he just keeps getting better with age. He’s a game wrecker. He plays his heart out. He prepares. He takes care of himself and his body and he’s able to go out and play at a high level still. He’s the leader out there of that defense and what he brings from just a football standpoint is great, but from leadership and energy and all those types of things, I’m sure glad he’s out there.”

On Gosder Cherilus and keeping Cameron Wake to just a half tackle on Sunday:

“He’s a really good football and a great team player. He’s great in that (offensive line) room. He’s come in and done everything that we’ve asked of him. He’s a very unselfish guy. Gos certainly had his hands full. He knew it. He’s a pro. He prepared. He practiced extremely hard and he went out and did what he had to do to try and take care of Cameron.”

On how much he can get from Ricky Jean Francois and Aubrayo Franklin this week, both who used to play for San Francisco:

-“From a personnel standpoint is the biggest thing. They can talk scheme and all that stuff but they can really talk about the type of people they are going to face, the personnel. If Ricky were going to go in and talk to our offensive linemen and tell them about the defensive line group, in particular talk about Aldon Smith and here’s his favorite pass rush move. This is what he loves to do. This is his counter, those types of things.”
