Sidelined Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano Gives Emotional Speech After Colts Win Over Miami
This season was a new beginning for the Indianapolis Colts with Andrew Luck at quarterback, a host of new young faces and new Head Coach Chuck Pagano. Things were looking pretty bright until Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia and left the team to receive treatment, which motivated the Colts to play at a level nobody thought possible this year. Pagano was released from the Indiana University Health Simon Cancer Center two weeks ago and was able to watch his Colts beat up on the Cleveland Browns. Yesterday, Pagano was actually in attendance at Lucas Oil Stadium for the first time since being diagnosed and the Miami Dolphins were in town with their rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
The long and short of it is the Colts beat the Dolphins 23-20 yesterday to move their record to 5-3 on the year. Andrew Luck set the single-game record for most passing yards by a rookie quarterback with a stunning 433 yards in the air. Pagano visited the locker room after the game and gave a very inspirational speech that is well worth the 90-seconds you’ll invest in the video.
