Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy explained how he seeks faith on and off the football field on "Jesse Watters Primetime." TONY DUNGY: I know that not everybody believes like I do, and I understand that. So I'm very good at letting people do what they want to do. But our verse is, "For me and my house, we'll serve the Lord," and that's the way you have to look at it. I think our country would be a lot better if we were led by the Lord, but that's not the way it is.
Matt Ryan was brought in to stabilize the quarterback position for the Colts following some tumultuous post-Andrew Luck years. Tony Dungy said on CBS Sports Radio that so far he’s hearing good things.
Football coaches have a tendency to get too cute with their play-calling, and they’re sometimes afraid to run the same play multiple times in a game (and in some cases, even afraid to run a specific play multiple times in an entire season). If it’s working, why not use the play again until the defense shows they can stop it? Or force the defense to be so mindful of that play that you have them positioned poorly for a different play out of the same formation.
