    Jim Caldwell is his own man and he’s going to run the Indianapolis Colts the way that he sees fit. Caldwell, however, doesn’t shy away from acknowledging the strong influence that former Indianapolis coach Tony Dungy has had on helping to shape his professional coaching career over the past seven years. So the chances are pretty good that fans will see a lot of same philosophies in place this season. “I don’t think you will see much difference at all in terms of how we do things. That’s the thing we would like to maintain. Oftentimes I’ve mentioned, from time to time people are always looking for a stamp, and obviously this team belongs to everybody. It’s not a Jim Caldwell team. “This team belongs to the guys that have put in a lot of sweat and blood and tears in this program,†the first-year head coach is quick to point out. “The organization belongs to the owner [Jim Irsay], to [team president] Bill Polian, all the guys in the personnel department as well as the assistant coaches and players. So what we do is try to build up on what has already been established here. Tony built a great foundation here. We’re trying to take it a little bit higher.â€
