INDIANAPOLIS - Chuck Pagano is wasting no time trying to get back on track. Wholesale KD Shoes .The Colts coach wants his team to gain some momentum heading into the post-season. But Indianapolis problems in a 42-7 thrashing at Dallas on Sunday were too obvious and could be lethal for a team with hopes of a playoff run.You want to be confident going into the playoffs and you want to go in feeling good about yourself, Pagano said. Nobody wants to go through a day like we went through yesterday, but you have to bounce back and you have to keep moving forward.Weve got a game to play this Sunday and we better prepare and we better practice and try to clean up what we can clean up in a short amount of time.The Colts (10-5) have to turn things around quickly with the playoffs beginning the first weekend in January. The AFC South champs plan to get on a roll starting this weekend at Tennessee (2-13) in the regular-season finale.Indy had won four straight before the Cowboys ended the streak. Still, the Colts havent been playing well and Dallas took full advantage.The Colts had three turnovers, eight penalties and were held to just 1 yard rushing — something that certainly surprised Pagano.Ive never seen it, and obviously its out of character for us, he said. Youre not going to win a football game by rushing for 1 yard. You have to be able to run the ball in the playoffs, you have to be able to run the ball on the road late in the playoffs in January. We all know that.Nothing went Indys way.In the first quarter, linebacker Jerrell Freeman was penalized for taunting on third down and with a chance to force the Cowboys to punt.Later, Pat McAfee faked a punt and instead threw a pass that was dropped by a wide-open receiver, and the Colts turned the ball over on downs.Dallas scored on both ensuing possessions.From that point on, it just seemed like what could go wrong did go wrong, Pagano said. We just didnt execute and didnt play good football.Indy is looking for a different performance this week against a struggling Titans team that has lost nine in a row.The Colts were just settling into a groove when they beat Tennessee 41-17 on Sept. 28. It was Indys second win after starting the season with two losses. The Colts won five straight before a loss to Pittsburgh on Oct. 26, and Indianapolis hasnt been consistent since.When you look back early in the season, Pagano said. You saw the way the offence was moving the football on the ground, through the air mostly, guys making plays, moving the chains, staying on the field, winning the time of possession, taking care of the football for the most part. But we have not played well and have not executed well, and we need to get it fixed and we need to get it fixed in a hurry.Injuries have damaged the Colts, too.Receiver T.Y. Hilton was out last week with a hamstring injury and Reggie Wayne hasnt been himself with various injuries.Starting offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus missed Sundays game with a groin injury. Various offensive linemen have faced injury issues, making it tough for the Colts to develop some continuity, Pagano said.That obviously makes it more difficult, he said. Wed like to hopefully settle in at some point before this things over with. Its coming down to the wire with one regular-season game left and then the playoffs.NOTES: Pagano said he expects Hilton (hamstring) to play this week against the Titans. . Pagano said tight end Dwayne Allen had an MRI on a knee injured in Sundays game and is day to day. . Pagano said Freeman is day to day with a hamstring injury. . Cherilus is day to day and Pagano said it was too early to tell if he would return this week.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL KD Shoes From China .

Chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon and general manager Sandy Alderson were among those there. The get-together also included sports agent Brodie Van Wagenen, but not Cano. A five-time All-Star second baseman, Cano is a free agent. He is seeking a 10-year contract for more than $300 million from the Yankees. Alderson said last week he doubted the Mets would offer any nine-figure contracts. "They requested a meeting," Alderson said Tuesday. "We talked generally and that was it. As I said, we were approached. Having said last week that I didnt foresee contracts in the $100 million range for the Mets this season, I think that statement still pertains. On the other hand, we are committed to improving the team and we will explore whatever possibilities arise, however remote and eventual outcome." Alderson called it "a very preliminary meeting" and said it included a PowerPoint, books and pamphlets. "We certainly have a high regard for Robinson Cano as a player," he said. "It was my sense the presentation was a little bit overdone." Jay Zs Roc Nationn Sports formed a partnership this year with Van Wagenens CAA Baseball. Discount KD Shoes. "We felt it would be useful enough for us to meet Jay Z and Brodie, whether its in connection with Robinson Cano or some future client that they may have," Alderson said. While the Mets have more money to spend after getting large contracts for Johan Santana and Jason Bay off their books, Alderson says free-agent prices have been high. He said he didnt teams payroll would be below its 2013 level of about $95 million. "We have to be realistic about the market and not sort of deny the inevitable. If the market is as robust as it seems to be, then we have to acknowledge that," he said, adding: "It may not be manifest yet to the average fan, the average person, but I think we are more active than we were last year." NOTES: The Mets signed 1B Brandon Allen to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. The 27-year-old Allen, who last played in the majors for Oakland and Tampa Bay in 2012, is a .203 career hitter with 12 homers and 41 RBIs in 116 big league games.
