Locker Room Buzz: Indianapolis Colts

October, 15, 2013
SAN DIEGO – Observed in the locker room after the Indianapolis Colts' 19-9 loss to the San Diego Chargers:

Struggling to beat his brother: Colts coach Chuck Pagano still can't beat his brother John, the Chargers’ defensive coordinator. Chuck Pagano is 1-8 when facing his younger brother. The Chargers held the Colts to 267 yards of total offense. The Colts entered the game averaging 362.4 yards a game.

Wayne’s milestone: Colts receiver Reggie Wayne had five catches for 88 yards giving him 1,001 for his career. He’s the ninth player in league history to have at least 1,000 receptions. “It’s a great honor,” Wayne said. “It’s a humbling experience to be in an elite class with a bunch of guys who have helped pave the way for guys like myself. I wish it would have been more of a greater celebration.”

No fourth-quarter magic: Quarterback Andrew Luck is known for his comeback ability. He’s led the Colts on nine come-from-behind victories in less than two full seasons. That wasn’t the case Monday. “We are not coached to rely on a comeback,” tight end Coby Fleener said. “We don’t anticipate having to do it, but if it comes to it, we will be prepared and confident in our ability to do that.”
