John Pagano Finally Decided to Mix Things Up

I have to give credit, where credit is due. John Pagano coached a hell of a game against his brother on Monday against the Indianapolis Colts. Where were some of those play calls in the first 4 games of the season? Did we need to lose every linebacker that we have in order to create a few more exotic blitzes?

I love what he did in the game against the Colts. I have been one of his biggest critics and I give him props for what he did, I just don’t understand why he has not been doing these things since the start of the year. What do we expect from him against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday now also?

Donald Butler and Jarret Johnson might be back on the field this weekend also. What will that mean for the play calling?

Keep that foot on the gas and keep coming after the quarterback. I loved seeing the team getting aggressive on defense and confusing Andrew Luck. I loved that the corners jammed their receivers on the line. It was a completely different defense than what we had seen Hopefully it is a sign for the future.

The best defense for the team was the Chargers hogging the football. The team help onto the ball forever with their power running game. Ryan Mathews pounded that football over and over again and Danny Woodhead did the same.

It was a whole team victory. The defense impressed and I am looking forward to them building on their effort from Monday Night.

Score one up for the John Pagano backers after tonight’s game. You do know that this performance does show that you can make something out of the players that we have on the field though.
