Tony and Lauren Dungy in-studio to breakdown the Colts and discuss their new books!


Former Colts Head Coach Tony and Lauren Dungy joined JMV in-studio to discuss their new books as well as break down the Colts! Tony talked about what he saw watching practice on the last day of camp, why he's more optimistic for the season after talking to the players and coaches, why he doesn't like the new instant replay rules, and a great story of how back in 2007 they thought Dallas Clark tore his ACL.

 

JMV: "No one wants to see this team (Colts) thrive and win more than the owners of this team (Jim Irsay)"

 

Tony Dungy: "No he really does, and so does everyone there and what I think the public needs to understand is that you don't always know, especially medically, what's happening. I'll give you an example from the Super Bowl year, we're playing Thanksgiving weekend and Dallas Clark gets hurt, he goes down, I walk out onto the field and the doc says 'this has every sign it's an ACL injury'. I come in for my press conference and all I can say is that hey Dallas Clark is hurt and we'll get the details later but I don't know exactly what is going on. 2 days goes by and it's still the ACL, he's going to have surgery. 5 minutes before we were gonig to put Dallas on IR doc calls me back and says 'hey we got another test, don't put Dallas on IR, it's not an ACL it's just a strain.' 6 weeks later he's in the Super Bowl."
