Cory Redding isn’t new to Chuck Pagano, he played for him in Baltimore. So, he knows first hand who Pagano is, and what he means to the Indianapolis Colts. Pagano is under going cancer treatment, but his spirit has shown the fight in him, and now the Colts are showing the same fire. At 5-3, the Colts are the surprise team of 2012, and according to Redding, Pagano is the reason why. Redding spoke to Dan Dakich on 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis about the effect, and inspiration Pagano has brought to the Colts. “His impact was huge. Everybody plays for different reasons throughout their career, and this situation, this reason, is totally the difference. I believe it’s throughout the whole team … to go out and get a victory on the field so we can put ourselves in that playoff situation, to have Chuck back on the sideline to coach that game with us so we can go as deep as we can go. And that’s our goal as a team. Just to see him in the locker room, standing there before us, as he’s preparing mentally and physically to go through another round of a crucial, crucial Leukemia battle, which he’s obviously winning and doing really great on. So it was just a pleasure to see him there and lift everybody’s spirits up.” “That’s just who he is. That’s the guy I met in Baltimore and the guy is continuing to be here with his enthusiasm, his playfulness, his seriousness about the game, his passion and love for it. All those things show, man. And he’s a very emotional guy and loves people, man. And when you have those qualities, you just have a great makeup for a great person and a great guy. And we have that in a coach, and that’s very good.”
