Phil B likes new hires so far

Phillip B. Wilson likes what he sees so far in both Chuck Pagano and GM Ryan Grigson who he chatted up during the coaching press conference:

I mentioned the guy doing his job before didn’t give me the time of day. I encouraged him to never be shy about calling me out if I write something incorrect or if it’s just something he disagrees with me on. He was cool about it, gave me a firm handshake that shook the right side of my 300-pound body. Got to admit, I was ready to suit up right there and play some football, and I haven’t done that since high school.

Pagano had me fired up, too. Can’t deny it. I know it’s early yet, the honeymoon as someone on Twitter advised isn’t over yet. But in this job you try to get a feel for people, what they’re about, how they are wired and almost the second you meet them you start breaking down what they’re saying and how they’re saying it.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
