I got a text message last night from a friend that said, "Is Pagano drunk?"
I don't think he is, but I do think that with his Colts' tenure coming to an end, he's let his guard down. That was evident in yesterday's odd weekly press conference in which Pagano made references to the weather and Groundhog Day:
I believe Stephen Holder hit the nail on the head here:
Every year about this time, Pagano starts to accept the idea that he might get fired, and we get press conferences like today's: No holds barred.— Stephen Holder (@HolderStephen) November 27, 2017
It's good to get away from the cliches - "chopping wood", "sixty minutes", etc. - and at least people are finally laughing with Pagano instead of laughing at him.
