    Q: Former Colts linebacker Cato June, who’s now with the Buccaneers, said before the game he was going to give his new teammates tips on Peyton’s calls and signals at the line of scrimmage. How did you feel the Colts handled that Sunday?

    A: ]It just proves all the intelligence in the world pre-game isn’t going to do you any good, because Peyton knows people are trying to figure that out. We change it week to week and sometimes quarter to quarter, depending upon what we think is appropriate, so it’s very difficult for somebody to pick that up. Now, we run certain plays and everybody knows we run them. The problem is stopping them and knowing when they’re going to be run. That’s why we’ve done a good job of disguising that and executing them. Sunday was a relatively straightforward simple game plan because we had so many young players in the game. In fact, on kickoff coverage, we had seven rookies. They did a darned good job, by the way. It really isn’t the nomenclature that’s important. What’s important is the execution.


    Just thought this was kind of funny.

    Funny's not exactly the word I would pick :mad:

    Thanks for the good quote though.

    To me, the most important part of this quote is someone acknowledging the importance of CHANGING SIGNALS.

    For instance, if Tom Jackson thinks the Rams are dumb enough to use the same signals in the Super Bowl that they used in November, then that's the Rams problems. If only someone were around on Sunday on ESPN to ask Tom Jackson his own favorite question, "are you retarded?"

    Well, I used "funny" very loosely. I guess I'm just over it now and the only reason I even posted the quote was because I thought everyone would enjoy it.

    I'd be over it if the NFL hadn't stolen a #1 pick like a thief in the night.

    Just underscores why spygate was a tempest in a teapot. And why all the talk of tarnished Lombardi's is fanboy crap.

    As was obvious to all of us, if Ratgini "knew" we were stealing signs to use in the game then he'd have waited until we "knew" the signs then changed up. Duh. It makes me want the Patriots to kick the asses of every team even more - and I can't help but wonder if the players and coaches have the same anger just underneath their skin.

    I feel exactly the same way and about the "thief in the night" comment. Obviously, I live here in Indy so I hear it everywhere I go and I just laugh it off these days. I used to hear the word "metro" constantly while wearing my Brady jersey and now I hear "cheater." Either way in the end I just put up three fingers and walk away.

    How 'bout this gem:

    "Q: Why are there so few Monday Night games in the RCA Dome?

    A: NBC told us they don’t like us at home, because we tend to win by rather large scores and that doesn’t make for good TV. Monday Night is ESPN and I think we’re only on once – Jacksonville. They chose Jacksonville as the host there. That’s partially the schedule-maker and partly television and partly how they juxtapose the schedule and fit every game in. It tends to run a little bit in cycles. We’ve had our share of Monday Night games at home, I think, and this year it tends to go the other way. The one anomaly that I find interesting in the schedule – and I don’t have a stat on this, but I’m going to get it next week – is that we’re on the road on Monday Night at Jacksonville and then have to go back and play on the road the following Sunday at Carolina. That is extremely rare. I can’t remember it happening to any team that I have been with. My memory is failing me these days, so I could be wrong on that, but nothing jumps to mind immediately. It is a very, very difficult thing to do. "

    The guy seems oblivious to the fact that champs get a tougher slate. You've got to love the "we typically win big at home" bit- good thing we play them in the afternoon ;)
