Trailblazing success carries Dungy to Hall of Fame

Harrison will be joined by his coach for seven seasons in Indianapolis, Tony Dungy. Former defensive back Charles Woodson, an eight-time Pro Bowler described Harrison as the toughest receiver he's ever faced. A coach is a teacher.

"I'm thinking this is just him talking to me, going out the door", Dungy told the Free Press earlier this year.

"I never felt our only job was to win", said Dungy, 139-69 in 13 seasons, including 85-27 with the Colts from 2002-08.

Noll was drawn to Dungy because Dungy had a similar demeanor and philosophy, Steelers radio color commentator Tunch Ilkin said. "But it was great. It was great to see him get that opportunity".

In five years, Manning will be the headliner at the Hall of Fame induction, but tonight he was just one of the thousands in attendance, celebrating the careers of so many great figures in football history. "But my current Hall of Famers sitting to my left and right - I'm not going to break the record to have the shortest speech in Hall of Fame history". You'll forever be loved here in Tampa and we thank you for all you did. I know when I first went there coming from the NFC I hadn't played against him that much. "That's what you do.' And that's what he was all about".

He was a great football coach highly deserving of the honor, but when he goes into the HOF on Saturday night the people who know him well will think of Dungy as a humanitarian first.

"And we would not have had Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy coaching against each other in Super Bowl 41. That always stuck with me". I saw their busts and their exhibit. The only exceptions are John Madden, who won one title in 10 years with the Raiders and also has the highest regular-season win percentage in the modern era (post-1970), and George Allen, who spent 12 years coaching the Rams and Redskins but never won a title. "I believed in that same type of thing".

While Dungy is honored to be an inductee, he is not thrilled about being the first. Sometimes you get a call from the huddle from the defensive coordinator and think this is not going to work.

Dungy was the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts from 2002 to 2008.

“That was what was so enticing to me about the Colts job.

At training camp in 2003, the year after he set the all-time single-season receptions mark of 143, Harrison recalled, Colts offensive coordinator Tom Moore approached him and said he was disappointed in that total. And he could do it so quickly.

"I think that came from because he played quarterback, but then he also played defensive back". And he could relate it to you so easily, 'Hey, this is what they're trying to do. "And he could do that on both sides of the ball and in the kicking game, which is impressive".

Of course, Dungy's track record speaks for itself.

Jim Irsay won't be wearing a gold jacket on Saturday, but the Indianapolis Colts owner sure is proud of two men who will. Dungy enters the Hall of Fame with Harrison, and will likely see more of his former Colts players enter the Hall in the coming years, including Peyton Manning. Into the draft meeting. "That is basically my motto that I live by now, this far into my career, and I am very thankful to him for that".

Wins Watkins Glen Pole
He also won the pole at NASCAR's other road course in Sonoma, California. "Now I need to put it together and get a win here". Five-time Glen victor Tony Stewart clocked in third followed by Matt Kenseth, Toyota teammates Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin.

With a 29-17 victory against the Bears in Super Bowl XLI following the 2006 season, Dungy became the first black head coach to lead a team to victory on the game's greatest stage.

"I want to thank Mrs. Johnson for that". "And I thank them very much".

Caldwell said Dungy's influence on him and all the coaches he worked with was profound.

Known as much for his work as a mentor to players and insistence on athletes being good citizens, Dungy led the Indianapolis Colts to the 2006 National Football League title.

"'You want to know why we aren't winning". It's a real family atmosphere and a lot of that. Really, it was more of a year where our franchise quarterback got hurt.

Joining Dungy in the eight-member class will be Edward "Eddie" DeBartolo Jr., Brett Favre, Kevin Greene, Marvin Harrison, Orlando Pace, Ken Stabler, and Dick Stanfel.

"That's the pinnacle", Perkins said. Tomlin said before Dungy was elected to the Hall.

If Bush is able to get back to 100 percent, he will be a part of the backfield in Buffalo led by star running back LeSean McCoy. The person spoke to The Associated Press Monday on the condition of anonymity because the Bills have not announced their plans.

With the threat of afternoon thundershowers looming, the Colts changed the practice schedule, canceling the morning walk-through and moving the main practice from its usual 1:50 p.m. start to 11 a.m.
