Indianapolis Colts Hire Greg Manusky as Defensive Coordinator

By Ernie Padaon

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

Forget the post about the Colts INTERESTED in bringing on Greg Manusky as the defensive coordinator, accorging to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, Manusky has been hired by the Colts to run that defense.

The most interesting part of this to me is that the new head coach of the Indianapolis Colts is Chuck Pagano. Chuck’s brother, John, just took over the defensive coordinator post that was vacated by Manusky in San Diego and worked with him. Chuck would ask brother John about Manusky… right?!

Didn’t John Pagano watch the defense we ran last season? It was POO (best description I could come up with)! Was it our personnel or was it the game plan?

Anyway, I still will believe that Manusky is a bad defensive coordinator, BUT the Indianapolis Colts defense will do OK. Not because of Manusky, but because they have Chuck Pagano as their head coach and he believes in putting a lot of pressure on the quarterback. I don’t think they will be seeing the 2-man pass rush anytime soon.
