Caldwell grateful for second chance in Detroit

(Continued)

"The most important thing is winning," he said. "That's the most important thing. The most important thing is putting points on the board and winning games. I think that's going to be our focus more so than some landmark that we set in terms of production from an offensive standpoint."

Caldwell has seen plenty of winning in his days with the Colts and the Ravens, and he found some similarities between the franchises. Chief among them is leadership and consistency in the locker room.

Caldwell said winning consistently "has a certain sound to it." He's looking for players who will step forward in times of trouble and guide teammates onto the right path.

For the most part, Caldwell found those people in Indianapolis.

Taking over as Tony Dungy's hand-picked successor after seven seasons as an assistant coach, he posted a 24-8 record in his first two seasons before Peyton Manning's neck injury and its aftermath temporarily derailed the franchise.

A 2-14 final season ultimately doomed Caldwell, but he left with a wealth of lessons about how to build a team in the NFL from his decade with the Colts.

"One of the things about our business is the fact if you don't feel that you're growing and developing each and every day, obviously you're in the wrong business," he said. "I learned something different every single day. I had a great 10 years here."
