On Colts coaching staff and the quarterback situation:

Rick Venturi: "In this respect, from what I gather, Jacoby took almost all the reps going into the game. If you had the idea that he wasn't gonna play, and I don't think he waited until the last minute, you would've had some idea along the way. You would certainly have gotten Hoyer much more prepared for the game. I'm not one to let the other team know if I'm playing Jacoby or not. I do understand that kind of secrecy to a point, I've never wanted my opponent to know exactly who to get read for. But, they probably had in the back of their mind the whole week, that they weren't going to play him. I think in that respect the preparation, I think Hoyer suffered."

On Adam Vinatieri:

Rick Venturi: "I just can't see why you don't just move on. Don't tell me that there's not somebody out there, that will make more than 8 out of 14 extra points. At some point, I said it last week you can be good, you can continue to be the good guy. You can live in denial, and use all that false confidence. I said, as we ended the show, and you can keep losing football games. We lost another one."
