HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (On having six players make the Pro Bowl) * *
"It's great when your team has the opportunity to be well represented on that (Pro Bowl) team. It shows we've had a lot of guys play extremely well. They (Colts Pro Bowl players) have contributed to a lot of successful years around here."
HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (On the playing time of the starters this week)
"We'll have to determine that a little later this week."
HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (On not having an undefeated season and preparing for the playoffs)
"It's more so how you react to things that happen to you. It's something that is on the mind of our guys. I think they are focused. I think it (preparing for the playoffs) will serve them well."
HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (On QB-Curtis Painter bouncing back if he plays this week)
"A lot of circumstances you can't control. You have to be able to take some tough times, adjust, learn from them and move on."
HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (On TE-Dallas Clark getting seven catches to break Tony Gonzalez's NFL TE seasonal record)
"We certainly are aware of those things. It's not necessarily something we set out to get accomplished in the ballgame. We'll look at it closely."
HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (On team approach this week)
"The big thing we try to do is take a look at who is in front of us in terms of our opponent this weekend. We just want to be better. There are certain things we consider to be our weaknesses that we want to make our strengths. We've isolated a few things that we want to talk about to make certain we work on and get accomplished during the course of practice. That's been our focus. We want to have an intense preparation with improvement in a number of areas."
HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (On the mood of the team)
"It's business, like it usually is on Wednesday. They (players) are as focused as they usually are. They are determined as they usually are. That's my sense."
HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (On his reaction to the fans this week)
"I'm certainly aware of it. We have a very, very passionate fan base, which I think is understandable. They've been behind what we've built here in terms of enthusiasm and support. I'm certain we'll have that support down the road when we come back to the stadium and have an opportunity to play."
