Colts hit the field at training camp

Pagano keeping players on their toes

ANDERSON, Ind. — Chuck Pagano addressed the media for the first time at training camp after Sunday morning's walkthrough at Anderson University. And he set a clear tone for the season.

The Indianapolis Colts surprised many observers last season with an 11-5 record and an AFC Wild Card playoff berth. Some have suggested that success was a mirage, and the team is destined to come crashing back to Earth this season.

Pagano said the Colts have to block out the noise as best they can and focus on the task ahead of them.

"I think everybody, if you read the papers, everybody's still saying the Colts are fool's gold," Pagano said. "I think I read that one, you know, I shouldn't read that stuff. In this league, what we did last year was last year. This is, 'what have you done for me lately?' In the National Football League, we're all judged by wins and losses. So that was last year. We can sit there and read our press clippings and pat ourself on the back and get complacent. We're not gonna get complacent. You get complacent in this league, you go right back to where you were."

Indianapolis will hold its first public practice of training camp at 1:50 p.m. The team will hold 15 open practices overall before camp breaks on Aug. 16.
