If they wanted to try to milk the clock in that situation, we certainly weren't going to allow it because we had enough timeouts to make them punt it to us," Colts coach Jim Caldwell said. "That was the idea.

"I’ve known Jim for quite a many years. He’s definitely a well-thoughtful gentleman and (understands) not only the game, (but also) the issues of life and how it all kind of weaves itself together and he’s very driven to be successful."

Former NFL Wide Receiver Qadry Ismail on Jim Caldwell, via the Davis Sports Deli Podcast. Caldwell tried to recruit Ismail to Penn State while he was a member of Paterno's staff, and played for the Colts in Caldwell's first season in Indy.

Our base is four-three with a Tampa 2 in terms of our coverage. We still are the same team in that sense. Don’t expect to come out and see some brand-new scheme that’s totally different than what we’ve done before."

Jim Caldwell makes it clear, for the billionth time, that the Colts defense is still a Tampa 2 defense.

People always wonder what it's like to follow a legend in pro sports and Caldwell is about to find out. Replacing Tony Dungy isn't difficult -- it's impossible. You follow him, you don't replace the guy. Fortunately for Indianapolis, Caldwell had a year to apprentice under Dungy as associate head coach, so that should make the transition easier. But this won't: He just lost offensive line coach Howard Mudd and offensive coordinator Tom Moore to unexpected retirements brought on by the league's new pension plan. Owner Jim Irsay said both have agreed to stay on as consultants, but that doesn't mean everything is hunky dory. If it were, Peyton Manning wouldn't be asking questions about the status of his former coaches. Anyway, Caldwell just drew the short straw. He replaces a man who, in seven years, never missed the playoffs and won a Super Bowl. Now he must survive in a division with Tennessee, Jacksonville and Houston."

Clark Judge thinks Jim Caldwell will be a big impact "difference maker" in 2009.

In terms of what [Ed Johnson's] able to do for our defense, I think it has been proven that even in his first year, he played a pretty significant role in our front. We anticipate if everything goes according to plan and he can do the things he’s doing now to continue on this path that he will be able to help us somewhere down the road."

Indy Football Report quotes Jim Caldwell, who says Ed Johnson deserved a second chance to return to the Colts.
