You can pretty much bet that if John Pagano tried to call Chuck Pagano this week, the older brother didn't pick up.
While the brothers have coached against each other before, Monday night's edition of the sibling rivalry will be the first since Chuck became head coach of the Indianapolis Colts and John was promoted to defensive coordinator of the San Diego Chargers.
Chuck Pagano, seven years older than John, has done what he can to help his younger brother along the way: ''As much as I possibly can, like any brother would do for a sibling. No more, no less. Obviously none this week.''
Nothing personal, really. The Colts (4-1) are alone in first in the AFC South behind Andrew Luck, a power running game and a defense intent on working over Philip Rivers and the enigmatic Chargers (2-3), who looked great in beating Dallas and miserable in losing at Oakland.
Even in normal times, the demands of the job and the time difference between San Diego and Indianapolis work against the broth...
