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 following the team’s 27-24 victory in Houston:

On the play of Andrew Luck on Sunday night:

“Right when you think you’ve seen the special, special plays, the ability that Andrew possesses in making plays, doing things for this team, he just one ups it again. He’s remarkable. He’s unflappable. He’s got a positive outlook and approach on everything. He shoulders all the blame. He puts everything on his shoulders. He puts that whole offense on his back and he just looks everyone of those guys in the eye and says, ‘Hey, we are going to get this thing done. We are going to take this thing down the field and we are going to score. We are going to score again.’ The guy is just an incredible, incredible talent but what a leader. We are very fortunate to have him under center.”

On Reggie Wayne talking to team Saturday night:

“That’s Reggie. I had nothing to do with it. We’ve got a great owner in Mr. Irsay that made that thing possible and made that happen. Reggie being Reggie, we say he’s already ahead of schedule. He’s gets the green light from Dr. Uribe down in Miami on Thursday because we had been talking about it. It had been killing him to be away even for one day in going down for the surgery last Friday. It was just killing him to be away from here obviously. Thank God we’ve got the owner we’ve got and having Reggie healthy enough and able enough to say…and he didn’t say much but what he said was so impactful and meant so much to our guys.”

On Pagano’s halftime message:

“Well, this being a family network (laughs) I can’t really go there. But no, all kidding aside Bob, we’ve been there many times before. It’s not a place we want to be. We don’t try to be there but we certainly know that we are more than capable of mounting a comeback, no matter what the circumstances are. We just said, ‘Hey look, nothing in the first half resembled what Colts football is. Let’s go back to fundamentals, go back to technique, do our job and play it better.’ That’s what our guys did sticking to the process.”
