You know that guy? That football player who got paid to beat the crap out of people during the lockout as a professional boxer? Yep. Well, as of now, he's one of our newest Colts and I must admit: I'm already loving the fire this guy is bringing to Indy. Chuck Pagano, especially. These just don't feel like the same old, "built to play with a lead" Colts. They're taking a whole new approach and Zbikowski looks to have some insight to that approach.

After Pagano handed out t-shirts that donned the Colts new motto, "Build the Monster," Zbikowski spoke with Albert Breer and gave his interpretation of what that means to him:

A team that can "beat the crap out of people."

Coming from a guy that has done a bit of precisely that, I'm comfortable with taking his word.

The Ravens have always been the epitome of a physical team. And for having that physicality, I'll admit that I have always felt a little envious. I had that feeling of smash-mouth football when The Hitman was on the field, yet that was short-lived. But, I shall be envious no more. To me, it sure sounds like Pagano and his former Raven warriors plan to bring that same intensity to the new Colts. We already have heard Ryan Grigson state that they plan to utilize a fullback. What does that mean? Well, as Andrew Luck adjusts to his new surroundings, an actual run game and grinding defense should be there to support him.

There's still a long way to go, but I'm getting more and more excited by the day.

Operation Build the Monster has commenced.
