“We know it’s December so we talked about playing meaningful games in December and controlling our own destiny, and as long as we win we do. The way to control your own destiny is to be careful Day after day – come to practice, hold on mentally and physically. Our philosophy is to keep things as small as possible. These other things can become distractions so we try not to get involved in too many of these scenarios Let’s just keep our world small and manageable and focus on what it takes to play good football in order to win a football game. “- Colts head coach Frank ReichGiven the importance of those last two games, knowing 11 posts-season wins still couldn’t take up space.

“Yeah, that’s remarkable, isn’t it? In order for him to be able to come back, and then – when he hurt his ankle while training, we all held our breaths and said, ‘Hey, hopefully he’ll come back.’ He’s always had a positive outlook and I think that’s part of having that positive outlook on healing and treatment, and getting your mind and body responding properly, and he did everything he could to get ready and then that He had an impact on that soccer game with the three bags and the pressure, then he played some first and second for us, then just his lead in terms of his character and what he brings in our defense was just superb so was definitely felt its effect. ” – Colt’s defense coordinator Matt Eberflus DeForest Buckner’s influence on the Texans win last Sunday, although he played a limited role due to an ankle injury.

“I just think it’s those reps that he’s gotten and the confidence. The confidence is such an amazing thing. You play a game you haven’t played in the NFL and then you say, ‘Me can do that. I can do this, I can do this cut. ”I think it’s confidence, and that confidence is built by the repetitions you have in practice and in the games and the success you have with it , and built up by his preparation. He’s a great student of the game and a great player who is just about to keep going up and getting better. “- Colts Offensive Coordinator Nick Sirianni about what has changed in rookie Jonathan Taylor’s running style throughout the season.

“The Pro Bowl is – it is what it is. I say this so that he can lead the league in special teams with as many tackles as he does – I think he heads the league with six tackles and not.” Getting elected is kind of a puzzle. He should be all-pro without a doubt. He has contributed a lot to our unit and our unit has contributed to many victories for this team. It’s proof of his efforts. George (Odum) is also a team player. He does everything we ask of him. He’s a selfless player, plays with injuries and did a good job. He’s a fighter. Yeah, of course I would have. I didn’t even know why we sometimes vote for the Pro Bowl. I think the All-Pro is more deserved. It feels like a popularity contest at times. but it is what it is “- Colts Special Team Coordinator Bubba Ventrone on George Odum, the table leader in special teams, is excluded from the Pro Bowl.
