Missed opportunities plague Colts



"I think the finger needs to be pointed at me. I'm sure everybody feels like they have something to clean up. I don't think it's the end of the world. I think there are things that can be fixed. We'll get back to work this off week and try to fix them for the next game."
But it was the third quarter interception by Posluszny that bothered him the most.
"I lost sight of the Mike [middle linebacker]. But all the indicators said that he was going to be there. Very bad decision is what it boils down to," Luck said.
Indianapolis was outgained on the ground by Jones-Drew, picking up 124 yards in 29 rushing attempts. Donald Brown led the way with 62 yards in 18 carries. Luck added 50 yards on four carries, including three scrambles and one designed bootleg.
The worst part of Sunday's loss to Jacksonville is that the Colts have to wait two weeks before they play again. Indianapolis has a bye week coming up and will be practicing three days before getting the weekend off. Green Bay comes to town on Oct. 7.
"It's just one of those deals where you come in the locker room and you're like, 'What are you going to say?' Like anything else, just remember this feeling. Just remember how you feel right now. There's so many things we can do as a football team on both sides of the ball and special teams, across everybody, to make it where we don't even have to be in that position," Pagano voiced.
"We've got a locker room full of guys that are really in shock. We have our 24-hour rule. We'll come in and look at the [game] tape like we always do, make our evaluation of it and get things corrected. We've got to move on. We do have a bye week, which is going to help from a physical standpoint. Try and get some guys back, try and get as healthy as we can. It's a long, long season. We all know that. Like Robert [Mathis] said. 'There ain't no pity party.' Adversity will introduce a man to himself is what I told them. We've got the right guys in the locker room, players and coaches, and we'll come back from this."
