NFL Notes: Colts, Saints, Steelers

Bears

  • Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune writes the Bears plan to have Mike Glennon in place as their starting all season.
  • Even so, Campbell says that the Bears have no incentive to place a hard ceiling over first-round QB Mitch Trubisky’s head. Although, the job is likely to remain Glennon’s, given his NFL experience.

Colts

The Colts would like QB Andrew Luck‘s interception total to be in single digits this year.

“We say this all the time, ‘Andrew should not be a double-digit interception guy,'” Colts QBs coach Brian Schottenheimer said, via Mike Wells of ESPN. “Like that’s the phrase that we use. He’s just too good of a player. So again, if he can eliminate some of those decision interceptions — I think there are five or six of them — those numbers drop significantly. You’re going to throw interceptions. It just happens.”

“If we can eliminate [decision interceptions], that’ll obviously help him drop down,” Schottenheimer added. “That’s kind of the number we’ve been using. He should throw seven, eight, something like that.

Saints

Saints GM Mickey Loomis explained that the situation that led to them placing DT Nick Fairley on the reserve/non-football injury has been difficult for all parties involved.

“He had really maybe his best season ever last year,” Loomis told Jeff Duncan and Larry Holder on Sports 1280, via the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “We were counting on him and looking forward to having him on our team going forward. So this has been difficult. More difficult on him obviously than any of us, but it’s difficult on our team, too. Nick is well-liked, he’s a good teammate, a good player and not having him on our roster this year puts us in a little bit of a bind and it’s a difficult situation but we are mostly concerned about him.”
