    On Channel 10 news, they were talking about Telesco saying that he said he made a mistake with Cox. Guess the media was asking him about it. You have to respect a guy that confronts the issue head on. He’s still relatively new as a GM, but it shows he has tons of character and leadership qualities by not hiding from it. (Moving closer to getting on the TT and McCoy bandwagon). Seriously, these new guys aren’t so bad.

      I hopped on game 1 of last season. But now I’m looking for him to show he can find defensive talent as well as he did for offense last season. I looked into the colts past. Lots of misses on defensive draft picks and fa signings. Either he or pagano is going to have to step up next season.

      • Stefanie Smith

        Good point. He will have to do better on the defense side. Good idea to look into the Colts’ signings on defense. And you are right. They are going to need to get it right and get us some good defense players, either the draft or FAs.

          Lol I like how you totally dismiss the possibility pagano could coach up the defense. I’m a young charger fan so I’m always optimistic about sandiego every season…… Except norvs last season. I felt like the raiders

          • Stefanie Smith

            Yes, Pagano could do that. You’re the one that suggested that “either he or Pagano have to step up next season”–and I agree with that.

      • Diegoblue

        Not worried ..I believe Polian was calling the shots during those days

  • Derek

    Like I said before cox made perfect sense before he hit the field. I don’t blame Tt for it. It wasn’t like we pulled a redskins vs hanesworth.
