Indianapolis Colts 2010 Training Camp: Chick Looks Forward to Canada

The Indianapolis Colts will be heading to Canada to face the Buffalo Bills for their second pre-season game tomorrow night. Team defensive end John Chick was a star in the Canadian Football League and was simply unstoppable. He was a beast. Chick is looking forward to Canada.

Bill Polian likes the talent from Canada.

“It’s another avenue,” Colts vice president and general manager Chris Polian said Tuesday of the CFL to the Indianapolis Star. “We’ve gotten some productive players out of it.”

Some of these players include kicker Mike Vanderjagt, cornerback Nick Harper, and running back Kenton Keith. Chick could be the next great project for the Colts. Going back to Canada, it brings back memories for the 6’4″ 260-pound defensive end, who won the Grey Cup in 2007 with his Roughriders.

“It’ll bring back some good memories,” he said. “I’ll be excited to play in Canada again and hopefully get caught up with some colleagues and friends.”

Chick surprisingly went undrafted in 2006 NFL Draft and decided to move his pro career to the CFL. He was coming out of Utah with a tremendous career. There, he become a legend in the CFL.

“Cal is a legend in Canadian football. He has a great handle on everything,” Polian said.

Chick is going to work hard to make the roster, not producing much in the pre-season 37-17 home-opener loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

“He’s played hard,” he said. “But we need to see a bump in production this week, just like you do in everybody who has a game under them.”

Hope Chick does well. I wish all the luck to him.

Anderson Is Over, Here We Come Regular Season

The Colts ended their 60-minute practice session today, which would mark that training camp is finally over. It marks the regular season is finally coming and is almost underway. The Colts haven’t ended training camp in Anderson for eleven years! Now there are back and brought some good signs.

“Tremendous. Tremendous place,” coach Jim Caldwell said. “How giving they’ve been. How well-organized it’s been, the fan appreciation, the connection our players made with the fans; I think it was something to behold.”

The place was packed, with nearly 10,000 people in attendance to cheer on the blue.

“That’s very impressive,” linebacker Clint Session aid. “That shows the support for the Colts. We appreciate that.”

Great job guys!
