The Quote Machine: 2010 Colts Training Camp, Day Thirteen

Colts head coach Jim Caldwell (8/13/2010)

On Curtis Painter's development:

I think one of the things is just the experience in itself. You get a little bit more familiar with things. Things aren’t happening quite as fast. The verbage is a little bit easier to handle. I think his role changes significantly simply because of the fact that he’s a smart guy, he works hard and the time that he’s put in you’ll start to see it pay off.

On Kelvin Hayden and Deshea Townsend mentoring the Colts' younger corners:

Overall I think you can even see in the meeting rooms those guys have certainly been through it and set an example in terms of how to prepare each and every day. They set a great example knowing how to take care of their bodies as well. That’s an important thing during this time of the year, particularly that they’re being stressed and challenged so much with the weather and obviously the frequency of practice as well. Those two guys do a tremendous job in sort of setting the pace for those young guys.

On Deshea Townsend picking up the defensive scheme:

He’s coming. When you’ve been around as long as he’s been around, there haven’t been too many things he hasn’t seen. More so in his mind, he just has to flip a little bit of the verbage. He knows all the coverages.

Caldwell Conti.

On what he is looking for in Sunday's preseason opener:

A big thing is we’re looking for effort and execution. We have been focusing in more on their performance rather than results, in terms of the score board. Obviously we go out to win every single ball game, but I want them to focus in on their responsibilities, their duties. If we get that right and we take care of those little things, everything else will take care of itself.

On the potential of the Colts defense in 2010:

There is always room for improvement, there’s no question about that. I do think we have a good group of guys that have talent. We have experience. We just have to keep getting better, but we certainly feel good about where we are, and we certainly feel good about our potential.
