Much maligned figure put in an impossible situation. Apparently a very good human being, sad news.
Chuck Pagano's defensive rankings in 5 years with Indy: 26th, 20th, 11th, 26th, 30th, and 30th.

Cancer sucks. And I know 76 is a decently long life but that doesn't change anything for Virginia; horrible to have two of your kids die before you.

Despite my personal feelings about his running of the Bears and him getting promoted out of that role, I can still feel bad that the guy passed. Cancer sucks. Maybe it was a blessing for him.
Mikefive's theory: The only time you KNOW that a sports team player, coach or management member is being 100% honest is when they're NOT reciting "the company line".

Go back to leather helmets, NFL.
