Pagano talks AFC South standings, Reggie Wayne’s 1,000 catches and Monday’s loss on 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 (Tuesday this week due to Monday Night game).

Here’s some of the highlights from Pagano’s show following the Colts 19-9 loss to the San Diego Chargers:

On still being in first place in the AFC South despite Monday’s loss:

“We had a chance to gain ground but we didn’t take advantage of it, like you talked about with the division but we didn’t lose any ground. We certainly understand that it’s Week Six, we have Week Seven coming up. We are back at home. We will get back to work, get back on the field (Wednesday), guys will be eager to get back out there, correct the mistakes that we made, move on and get ready to play a heck of a ball game come Sunday night.”

On Reggie Wayne getting 1,000 catches:  

“Obviously, it’s a testament to the man that Reggie is and the player that he is and his work ethic and his passion for football. He’s in an elite group. Just an incredible feat. Again, reading the clips and reading what Reggie said, as only Reggie would, he’s humbled by it and it’s a great honor but he would have much rather had the W than that but that’s just Reggie being Reggie.”

On San Diego keeping the ball away from the Colts offense:

“You look at possessions three, four, five and six for them—55 plays total and 29 minutes and 16 points. Those four drives and they had some 77 plays total, 55 of those came on those four plays. Again, we shot ourselves in the foot. Anytime you are out there the length of the time that we were out there on defense, it’s extremely difficult.”

On doing better on third downs this week:

“It’s staying on schedule. Offensively, we’ve got to do better on first and second down to get ourselves in third and manageable. When opportunities present themselves, we’ve got to make the plays. Defensively, it’s the same thing. If we do well stopping the run on first and second down, and you get them in third and long situations, then we’ve got to certainly put more pressure on the quarterback.”

    Someone should have asked him why Kavell was a healthy scratch.
