“Often times it does come down to who’s made the less mistakes. And they will come back to bite you in the rear as they did last weekend to us.”
Forget it and move on -- That’s what the Colts are going to attempt to do heading into this week’s road game in San Francisco.
“We had our chances to win. Looking at the [game] tape, you look for positives,” head coach Chuck Pagano said of Indianapolis’ 24-20 loss to the Dolphins.
“We pointed [the positives] out [to the team]. We made the corrections and tried to emphasize in all areas the mistakes being made and the corrections we’ve made. We can’t have repeat offenders.”
San Francisco has the same feeling. The 49ers dropped a 29-3 road decision to NFC West rival Seattle Sunday night.
“Yeah, I think both facilities will be similar in their approach this week. Any time you lose, it’s never fun. We talk about that 24-hour rule all the time when you win. But it doesn’t apply when you lose, for some reason. I don’t know why but it just doesn’t apply,” the Colts coach said.
“You come in after a win and you look at the tape and hey, 24 hours and on to the next one. Everybody is miserable until you get to tee it up again the following Sunday and hopefully get a win and get that sour taste out of your mouth. They’re coming off a tough loss. We’re coming off a tough loss. I think the mind sets will probably be very similar.”
