I mentioned the guy doing his job before didn’t give me the time of day. I encouraged him to never be shy about calling me out if I write something incorrect or if it’s just something he disagrees with me on. He was cool about it, gave me a firm handshake that shook the right side of my 300-pound body. Got to admit, I was ready to suit up right there and play some football, and I haven’t done that since high school.
Pagano had me fired up, too. Can’t deny it. I know it’s early yet, the honeymoon as someone on Twitter advised isn’t over yet. But in this job you try to get a feel for people, what they’re about, how they are wired and almost the second you meet them you start breaking down what they’re saying and how they’re saying it.
Ugh. Phil B has such a crush on this guy, it's ridiculous. Yes he makes your job easier, Phil, and I'm so happy to hear that he pumps you up. Caldwell pumped up the guys that needed it (Colts players). Could we have maybe even a sentence of analysis of what this guy has done over his career? How has his passing D been? Stats? Stories? Anything other than "Gee golly he is exciting and I think he winked at me!"
In this new Colts era a lot of us are fearing, my first change of business is to stop reading Phil entirely.
@psvirsky Boy, no kidding. I was surprise Phil didn't say "and then he hugged me and whispered softly in my hear, 'Write like the wind, young man..' What a MAN!"
I mean, it's good to have a coach with charisma, but that a ain't gonna win no football games! (that's a quote from Phil Simms) (p.s. no it's not) (pps what??)
