On where the Colts can grow from here...

“Offensive linemen are the key.  You can use those draft picks on a lineman and still fail but when you get a group of guys that workout and feed off one another then it's really neat to see.  It will make your quarterback better, it will also make your running back better, and then ultimately when you get to control the line of scrimmage and the clock, then you can make your defense better.  I would spend a lot of money on that offensive line and go from there.”

 

On Quenton Nelson…

“You do not throw him the ball although at some point maybe you hand the ball off to him.  You gotta feed the big guy and he has become this Colt phenomenon. You owe it to him. All you need to do is give him a nugget now and again.  Every single one of those offensive linemen will feed off that and that's your way to get back to the line. I think it will be hilarious. I guarantee he's not going to fumble and he's going to fall forward.  How scared would those linebackers be having that man run at you.” 

 

On running game…

“I thought that they would run the ball better than they did. I would not have been shocked if they were right around 3.8 to four yards per carry because I knew Houston was going to do that. We walked about if Mack would go over 100 but I knew that the answer was no. T.Y. gets off against Houston so I knew it was going to be a throw first game anyway.  I thought Pascals catches were going to go to the tight ends and I figured T.Y. would be a typical T.Y. They had to get away from the run game a little. They didn’t run the ball in a sensational fashion but they did enough to win a ball game.”
