Indianapolis Colts: Chuck Pagano Delivers Emotional Post Game Speech After Victory Over Miami
The Indianapolis Colts defeated the Miami Dolphins 23-20 in a key AFC game. They did this in front of their ailing head coach Chuck Pagano who’s missed the previous five games counting today due to a bout with leukemia. The Colts announced just after their bye week in early October that they would be without Pagano indefinitely while he treated the life threatening disease.
Pagano, looks completely different in this video while speaking to the team post game. He references his two daughters that he would like to beat this bout and dance at their wedding’s and dance with multiple Lombardi trophies after winning the Super Bowl. If this doesn’t make you cry and force you to do something different or inspire you then you don’t have any heart or feelings.
This was an emotional and powerful speech from the Colts’ leader and should propel this team to a playoff push. He told this team he’s battling a condition out of his control, but this team can control their own destiny and not as severe what he’s facing.
Bruce Arians and the Colts are 4-1 since the bizarre announcement that their leader would be out indefinitely and are playing this season for coach Pagano. They’re in the midst of a three game winning streak and currently the fifth seed in the AFC playoffs if it would start today.
It’s an emotional time in Indianapolis and this speech only adds to the hype.
