"Many starters played briefly or were nursing little injuries, but it was a crap performance, my apologies/My commanders got n earful from me!" he tweeted less than 24 hours after an embarrassing 44-20 loss to Buffalo.
From 2005-11, the Colts went just 5-25 in preseason games, yet made the playoffs six times and reached the Super Bowl twice. Last season, the rebuilt Colts used the preseason to get in sync and build confidence. They went up 2-2 before making a historic nine-game improvement over 2011 and returned to the playoffs.
Hickman was injured early in the second quarter and limped off the field.
Five-time Pro Bowler Robert Mathis concurred.
"We'll go back to work, get back up to Anderson and get things fixed and come back and put this one behind us," Pagano said. "We obviously have got to play better and we will play better."
This one, though, just felt different.
"We've got to do a better job technique-wise up front, staying on our feet and making sure we turn the ball back inside," Pagano said when asked about the defense. "They got outside our corners. Guys played physical, played tough,Atlanta Falcons Jerseys For Sale, we just didn't play smart in certain situations."
"A lot of the stuff that happened, we feel like it's our own fault,Zapatillas Nike Baratas," he said. "We shot ourselves in the foot, not concentrating on the mental side of the football. So that kind of was our downfall."
Bad preseason results don't always mean anything, of course.
"We didn't play good Colts football. We have to do better," receiver Reggie Wayne said Sunday. "We had some good plays but we had a ton of bad plays, so hopefully we can correct those and get better for next week."
Buffalo set a new franchise record for points in a preseason game. While Indy's return game mostly stalled, Bills receiver Marquise Goodwin returned two kickoffs, setting up one Bills scoring drive with a 53-yard return and scoring on a 107-yard return. And while the Colts averaged 4.4 yards per carry,China Jerseys, the starting offensive line allowed Andrew Luck to get blasted on a blind-side sack and Chandler Harnish spent most of the final 2½ quarters under duress.
"Just feel sick for Justin and all those type of things,Zapatillas Nike Mujer Espa?a," Pagano said. "That hurts us to lose a guy, hurts us to lose anybody, but obviously feel bad for Hick."
The Colts got even worse news on the injury front Monday.
The Colts also committed three turnovers and were outscored 41-10 over the final three quarters.
So on Monday, he apologized to the fans.
One day after telling reporters that tight end Dwayne Allen would miss a couple of weeks with a foot injury, Pagano said backup linebacker Justin Hickman would likely miss the rest of the season with a Lisfranc injury in his right foot. Doctors, Pagano said, have recommended surgery.
Irsay had reason to be upset considering he spent nearly $140 million on free agents to improve his team. He thought he was getting a stouter defense, a more physical offense and a much better special teams unit — and he still might. But Sunday's debacle in the preseason opener didn't give anybody reason to suspect those areas would be any stronger in 2013 than they were in 2012.
Yet coach Chuck Pagano expected a better overall performance from a team that is supposed to be much deeper than it was a year ago,Nike Air Max Scontate.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Colts owner Jim Irsay didn't like anything he saw Sunday against Buffalo.
Of course, there are explanations. Luck played only two series. Backup quarterback Matt Hasselbeck played only three, and most of Indy's starters were on the sideline after just three series.
But the bigger issue for the Colts right now is fixing their mistakes — and making their owner happy.
Cornerback Cassius Vaughn,Nike Just Do It Scarpe Bianche, who left the game in the second half with a wrist injury, is listed as day-to-day after X-rays came back negative. Rookie defensive tackle Montori Hughes also is considered day-to-day after leaving with a stinger, and linebacker Quinton Spears who left in the first half with a hamstring injury is likely to miss about a week.
