For today’s offseason edition of the Notebook (Heavens no, not the romantic drama), we’ll discuss what Chuck Pagano said to his players, some must-read quotes from the refreshingly candid Pat McAfee, and Luck and Pagano jokingly plot to keep Bruce Arians from leaving.
The Cinderella story is over, and the 2013 Colts will carry the expectation of winning. They sound as though they’re up to the challenge. As usual, all quotes from today’s Notebook are courtesy of the Indianapolis Colts Public Relations Department.
Must Read: Pat McAfee
Pat McAfee started out as a good, serviceable punter early in his career but then came on strong after his public intoxication embarrassment in 2010 (The Broad Ripple Canal, folks, not the nice clean Downtown Canal, the muddy one with all the ducks). McAfee issued his own heartfelt apology via Twitter instead of releasing an official statement through his agent, which may have won some people over in Indianapolis (note: the incident is only mentioned here to avoid seeing anything about it in the comments). After serving a suspension and putting the incident behind him, he went on to set a Colts franchise record the following season of 46.6 yards per punt. In 2012, he followed up his breakout year by beating his own franchise record, raising the bar to 48.2 yards per punt.no comments
