Painter to Garcon clicking for Colts
“I think everybody has witnessed and understands that he has talent and ability,” Caldwell said. “It was just a matter of experience more so than anything else. Obviously, I think you can see that the more reps he gets and the more opportunities he gets, than the better he plays.”
Getting playing time behind Manning always was going to be a challenge.
“Obviously, you’re not going to get many when you’re behind the greatest of all-time,” receiver Austin Collie said. “Reps are Curtis‘ friend right now, and he’s gotten plenty of them so far. He’s just going to keep on getting better, but he’s playing excellent.”
With Clark and Collie returning from injuries, Garcon was not expected to be near the top of the pecking order. Instead, Garcon has 19 catches, Clark has 14 and Collie has 12. He has overcome a history of drops to rank eighth in the NFL with 420 yards receiving.
“The more time you’re in this offense and the more experience you have in this offense the more you’re comfortable with it,” he said. “You’re comfortable with the guys around you, and you’re comfortable with what you can do and what not to do. Now, as I get older, it’s a lot easier and more comfortable to play in this offense, to do things, set guys up and make plays.”
“We’ve all seen over the years that he’s an explosive individual that has great speed and power,” Caldwell said. “He can catch it and run with it, he can go deep and he can catch it short and turn it into a long gain. Pierre’s having quite a year thus far, and I think you’ve seen him in spurts do it before. He’s been able to put a few back-to-back this time around.”
