Colts ask fans for questions for Chuck Pagano, it went not well

AP

Frankly, I wasn’t sure the Colts were capable of any community outreach more tone-deaf than this summer’s prescription drug trade-in, which was an open door for every smart aleck who remembered their owner had a bit of a prescription drug issue.

But they may have just topped themselves.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano didn’t really have a good explanation for last night’s fake punt, but he does have his weekly radio call-in show tonight, and they want you to know he’s looking forward to hearing from you.

The poor interns in charge of the Twitter account have since been bombarded with suggestions, most of which include some variation of “What the (thing that rhymes with Chuck)?”

It’s probably going to get worse before it gets better. But that’s possibly true of the Colts season as well.

  1. True Colt fans need to just stop. They are 3-3 DESPITE Luck being gone for two games. You now also have a healthy Bradshaw to team up with Gore in the backfield. This offense is going to be unreal soon.

    You have a slowly but surely emerging Moncrief to help TY and you have a gentleman from Houston as a third option at WR….

    Injuries and a few changes will iron themselves out and the Colts will be right there at the end. They are 3-3 not 1-5 like the Ravens. Relax!

  2. My first date with my girlfriend included her parents, sitting across the table from us.

    That snap was the equivalent of, “So…your daughter is really hot. Nice work, you two!”

  3. Patriots Fans to Colts,

    Thank you for last night, we didn’t think anything could be more satisfying than a blowout win. Boy we were wrong, and now we have been laughing for 12 straight hours.

  4. “I am upset, Coach Pagano made us all look foolish!” — guy with a deflated football on his head

  5. The Colts could make it even more interesting by having Irsay sit in and answer the questions. He is a medical expert, NFL historian and sits atop the “Thanks Dad” list of renowned NFL owners who hatr men such as Belichick, Brady and Kraft. Why respect self made and accomplished men when you can pal around with the likes of Goddell, Davis, Mara and many others who never worked a day in their life.

    If Colts fans are done, with having another great QB to build off of, three straight playoffs, with one more win each year and being 3-3 despite injuries and having your franchise QB gone three games…..

    You need to go party with Haslam and rrot for the Browns. Anyone need any gas? smh

  7. Pretty much all the pro football pundits, prognosticators and Vegas wise guys had the Colts in the SB with Green Bay this past summer.

    How’s that lookin’ right now?

    They can beat the Titans, Jags (barely) and Texans. They can’t beat anyone else.

  9. Meanwhile, the Colts are planning to hoist a “fake punt participation banner”…

    Things are just wonderful in Indy…

  10. That “fake” punt will become the play that lives in infamy.

    There are plays in which players make mistakes, such as Jim Marshall’s wrong way run after recovering a fumble; those plays can be excused as losing it in the heat of the moment. Then there’s the “why did we call that play in that situation”, like the Seahawks throwing it from the 1 yard line with the Super Bowl title 36 inches away.

    But that play call, and that formation (which was illegal to begin with), in that situation, is the equivalent of a professional golfer needing to birdie the 18th hole at Pebble Beach to win the US Open, and deciding to hit a putter off the tee.

    If Chuck Pagano was trying to secure his way out of Indianapolis, he succeeded with that play call. Can someone tell me what other purpose that play call would have served?

    If you really think that? lol Don’t bet on sports son. Your biased / homer glasses, will cost you big money:)

  12. Thanks Mr. Pagano, next time we get to the Super Bowl and it’s a close game I’m going to use that fake punt play…

    Where, oh where, was the 60 point blow out?
    —————–
    This was even better. I went to sleep with a smile on my face.

  14. Thanks for the dumbest play in Sunday Night Football History Chuck Pagano. Even though I don’t think he’s the problem the Colts fans have clearly found their scapegoat and boy is it funny to watch.

  15. That was amazing and entertaining, watching the poor QB mouth “Why did you snap it?” to his center after the play. Why didn’t the QB call time out?

  16. Let’s be clear about one thing: if I had to choose between a 100 point blowout of the Colts and this play, I would go with this play every time. Blowouts are forgotten in a season or two, but Rustygate will live forever. I’m ordering a t-shirt as we speak.

  17. Hey Chuck maybe you could discuss the complexity of algorithms that negate a true understanding how unnecessary they are when applying to a situation of fourth down & three?

  18. From a Pats fan: Colts fought hard and prevented the blowout.Good job. Your team did try to embarrass the Pats by leaking the deflategate accusations to friendly media after your butt whoopin in the AFC championship game. I guess last nights embarrassment was a light hearted revenge for what you put the Pats through. Take the national laughing at your expense as karma for trying to humiliate an innocent, well coached team.

  19. I saw Tony Dungy talking after the game, they asked him if the fact that it was close meant the Colts were improving. He said no, he saw the same mistakes, the same flaws and the same mind-set that define the Colts. I’d ask Pagano about that.

  20. I think my favorite part of this season is that the Ravens fans have swaggered off somewhere.

    Personally I think the Ravens were as or more responsible for the lies of framegate than the Colts. Colts players were dragged into this with lies, as D’Qwell Jackson was quick to point out. The ball stealing NFL official, who hasn’t been seen or heard from since the AFC division round, is really at the heart of this. I guess he’s trying out some new cement shoes and doing a little crab fishing.

  21. Love the Colts fans who are proud they didn’t lose by 60. Please. You gave up 34 at home, 95 and TD to Blount, and would have been worse if Edelman doesn’t bobble a ball in his chest and the Pats don’t play the clock late. Loss is a loss.

  22. “Stupid Cheatriot fans – you got Lucky the Colts had a moment of stupidity because your blow out win was nowhere to be found .”

    You people are hilarious. “You didn’t blow us out hahahaha!”

    That game was never going to be won by the Colts. Luck folds like a wet blanket when it matters most. Just like your boy Peyton. You guys should be very used to that by now.

    Your owner is a drug addicted buffoon, your coach is an imbecile. Your team is terrible.

    Cheers =)

  23. The remained of the game was ruined because I simply couldn’t stop laughing, spilling beer all over the floor and damn near choked on a pretzel. Even my wife, who wouldn’t know a football from a medicine ball was confused by the “play”

    Christ, screw the blow-out nonsense,…this was a magical moment that will go down in history with the Seahawks final throw and interception in last years Superbowl.

  24. “…and it went not well”.

    Yes, I’m going to be “that guy”, but Holy Bad Grammar, Batman.

    You mean it “went poorly”? Or even “it didn’t go well”?

    You people will never understand, like the Pats themselves, Patriots fans will take any win, be it 1 point or 100. Were we disappointed that it wasn’t a 60 point blow out….a little….right up to the WTF play when the Colts contributed so mightily to their own demise. It was downright sweet.

  27. That play and this hilarity is cathartic for all of us that got to see the Colts ‘Luck’ their way into a second straight franchise quarterback with no struggle in between.

    Suck it.

  28. “Ok the guy who snapped the ball, did he try to block any of the 3 guys who crushed his QB?”

    I think he tried. Except that he wasn’t even a lineman. It was Griff Whalen, a WR. 😂😂

  29. The play in theory isn’t even that bad. The trick to the play is that the “center” is an eligible receiver because he’s at the end of the line. So it works like a screen. The center lets the defenders go. The confused defenders immediately rush the unprotected passer who dinks it over their heads to the wide open center who might rumble 60 yards.

    So, now let’s list all of the things that went wrong here:

    1) griff Whalen doesn’t know how to snap a ball. Why him?
    2) that safety colt Anderson doesn’t know how to take a snap. Again, why him?
    3) problems 1 and 2 are compounded by the fact that Anderson was under center trying to take a snap.
    4) regardless of who the center and the quarterback are, the play doesn’t work unless you’re in a shotgun so the qb has time to do the dunk pass.
    5) the other 9 players didn’t know what they were doing. 6 of them needed to be on the line.
    6) Nobody recognized that this was a disaster and called a timeout. Even if you don’t want to burn the timeout, take the delay and punt it.

    So as I outlined above, the play is supposed to be a dunk pass. But Whalen was blocking so wtf? And Anderson did not seem to plan on passing. Was it gonna be a run? I have no idea what the play was supposed to be. How was Anderson up the middle ever gonna work?

    The grammar is perfectly fine…..if you live in London in 1590.

  31. Thank you for this. It made my day. The Colts are a gift that just keeps on giving for us Patriots fans. Whereas the Polian-era Colts used to piss me off, the Grigson-era (did I just really write that?) Colts are like watching an SNL sketch every week.

  32. The true beauty of that play was how much it lifted the spirits of us Pats fans. I mean even though we were watching a truly great game, we were pretty bummed that we weren’t laying the absolute smackdown we had all been hoping and hyping for. And then, “What The Chuck Pagano” came in like Might Mouse to save the day, and gave us Pats fans that boost of hilarity and complete warm glow satisfied feeling we had been lacking up to that point. Thanks Chuck! I’ll never forget the lengths you went to to help us fulfill our dreams.

    True Colt fans need to just stop. They are 3-3 DESPITE Luck being gone for two games.

    ===================================

    Since Hasselbeck won both his starts, even if Luck had not been gone for two games, they would not be better than 3-3.
    All 3 losses were with Luck as the starter.

  34. They already have the media appointed wunderchild at QB.

    So the obvious question is: who are the Colts intentionally sucking for now?

    It has to be intentional right? Nobody is really that stupid.
