Pagano staying positive

If anybody expected Indianapolis Colts Chuck Pagano to start spewing fire to his players in the wake of Sunday’s 40-11 National Football League loss at Arizona, they would be largely disappointed.

Pagano prefers to stay positive and on an even-keel, although he quickly admits that the Indianapolis coaching staff is a bit frustrated.

That being said, the Colts are still in command of the AFC South with a 7-4 record and a two-game lead over second place Tennessee. The Titans are this week’s opponent at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Of course, that cushion in the division race could become a lot tighter if Indianapolis were to lose to the Titans.

“There were some positives [in the Arizona loss]. I know that’s hard for some of you to believe,” the Colts coach said Monday.

“It’s time to go back to work. [We have a] huge game coming up at home. We’ve got to put [the Cardinals game] behind us and get ready to work on Wednesday.”

Indianapolis has registered a 2-2 record since the team loss the services of veteran wide receiver Reggie Wayne to a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Wayne is sidelined for the remainder of the season.

In those four games, the Colts have started slowly. Indianapolis was able to battle back in securing AFC South road victories over Houston and Tennessee.

But in the other two games, against NFC West opponents St. Louis and Arizona, the Colts got behind too quickly and by too much to mount any sort of serious rally.

Indianapolis was outscored 78-19 in those two losses. So the work of the coaching staff continues.

“Coaches are working overtime. We start meetings at 8 and the special teams guys are in at 7. [Our] coaches are putting in hours you don’t normally,” Pagano voiced.
