Indianapolis Colts Notes, Quotes 2008-10-01
--"I knew when we did the contract that he's such a rare talent that you have to live a little bit with the possible injuries that come up. Bob is so combustible, so physical. He's so dynamic and such a rare individual. It's something you knew (was possible), but you know he might get on a lucky streak and go a year or two without having anything." -- Colts team owner Jim Irsay on not regretting signing injured S Bob Sanders to a five-year, $37.5 million contract last December. Sanders' deal included more than $20 million in guarantees.


--"I think it's a combination of a couple of things. Number one, the backs and receivers are probably better. You have faster, more athletic guys. You have bigger guys that are on offense, and that comes into play. And then, I think because of rule changes, because of the squad size, because of the salary cap, that you do less hitting and less physical preparation than in the past. So, I think tackling may be not as precise as it's been, but there are more good players on offense causing those misses.

"When I played in Pittsburgh, we had a lot more hitting than we have now. In San Francisco, it wasn't as different and maybe more similar to what we do now. Our practice schedule is kind of set up the San Francisco way off Bill Walsh and Dennis Green's schedule. And we have more no-pads days. Friday, when I played, was pretty much a live day that you went through everything full speed. We had pads on, and Friday was a full hitting day. We haven't generally done that here on Friday, and that's part of it." -- Coach Tony Dungy, discussing the state of tackling in the NFL.
