INDIANAPOLIS - Chuck Pagano could blame New England for one of his most bitter football memories. Cheap Marlins Jerseys .On the other hand, that loss also opened a new chapter in Paganos life.Now, three years after that stinging 23-20 championship game loss against the Patriots, the former Baltimore Ravens defensive co-ordinator is getting a second chance to earn a Super Bowl ticket at New England — this time as the Indianapolis Colts head coach.We wouldnt be having this discussion right now had things transpired in a different way, Pagano said as Indianapolis prepares for Sundays AFC championship game.He has often contended that if the Ravens won that day — on Lee Evans near-touchdown catch with 27 seconds left or in overtime, if Billy Cundiff had made a 32-yard field goal with 15 seconds to go — that he never would have landed in Indy (13-5).General manager Ryan Grigson didnt go that far this week, though he did recall watching the game and going through some old notes about Pagano almost immediately after Cundiffs kick sailed wide left. Within 24 hours, Grigson had contacted Ravens coach John Harbaugh for permission to interview Pagano, who was still angry.The bitterness was still emanating from him, even when we brought him in, Grigson said. So that game was his loss, but our gain because when he finally came in, it was evident to all of us in that room that this was the right guy.Three days after the game, Pagano accepted his first head coaching job.At first, the outlook looked bleak.The Colts were in the midst of a salary-cap purge and about embarked on one of the most ambitious rebuilding projects. They started by releasing a bevy of fan favourites including the seemingly untouchable Peyton Manning. Pagano now jokes that at one point he looked around his office and asked his wife, Tina, what the heck did we just do?Grigson never asked the same question about a man he viewed as a leader that could pull the best out of his players.Pagano proved to be everything Grigson envisioned and more, on and off the field.He helped convince Reggie Wayne, one of his old college players, to stick around for a hometown discount. He helped recruit defensive tackle Arthur Jones and defensive end Cory Redding, both starters who were in the Ravens locker room that awful day in New England, as free agents. It didnt take much of a push.I know what kind of guy he is, stand-up guy, shoots it straight to you, fun, energetic at practice, expects a lot out of you in the meeting rooms to know your stuff, Redding said, explaining why he left a championship contender to join a team that went 2-14 the year before he came. Knowing the system, knowing him, it was just easy for me to make the decision.It turned out the Colts incredible turnaround was about a lot more than just wins and losses.Three games into Paganos tenure, he was diagnosed with leukemia.Pagano spent 25 days at the IU Health Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis as longtime friends Wayne, Redding and Bruce Arians and new friends such as Robert Mathis, Andrew Luck, Grigson and team owner Jim Irsay rallied the team. After returning home, the treatments continued for two more months.The team responded to Paganos absence by winning nine times, none more electrifying than the second-half comeback against Green Bay when Wayne caught 13 passes for a career high 212 yards and the winning score with 35 seconds left. Irsay and Grigson hand-delivered the game ball to Pagano at the hospital.I cant imagine being anywhere else and having a city and a community embrace somebody they hardly know, Pagano said when he returned to the team complex on Christmas Eve. I just think thats how we roll in this great state, this great city and this great community.And Pagano just kept winning.Indy completed one its nine-game improvement over the 2011 season by winning in Paganos first game back on the sideline. The Colts have won 11 more regular-season games each of the past two seasons, the last two AFC South titles and here playoff games.But those who were with Pagano in Baltimore know thats not good enough yet.That loss lingered the whole off-season, said Jones, who was part of Baltimores 2013 world championship team. It was a tough way to end your year after making it that far. It bothers you.So this week with a second shot, Pagano is taking none at the Patriots.Hes just focused on trying to get the biggest win — and best memory — of his coaching career.Its about the game, its about the team, its about us doing our job, Pagano said Monday. We know how great a team were going to play. Youve got a Hall of Fame coach, a Hall of Fame quarterback and a bunch of great players on both sides of the ball. Its going to be a tall order. Wholesale Marlins Jerseys . I kept my eyes focused up on the camera during each approach. I just tried to stay focused on my form, as I didnt know what the ball reaction was. I was quite emotional at the end. I did not actually see any of the shots in the game until I got home and watched the video. Marlins Jerseys China . Monta Ellis had 30 points and nine assists, Nowitzki was another of seven Dallas players in double figures with 11 points and the Mavericks beat the Los Angeles Lakers 123-104 Tuesday night. . No such luck. Wiggins owned the end of Parkers impressive homecoming. The Kansas star scored 16 of his 22 points in the second half, outplaying Parker down the stretch and helping the fifth-ranked Jayhawks knock off No.WEST BROMWICH, England - Manchester United came from behind twice to earn a 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on Monday, with Daley Blind scoring the second equalizer with three minutes remaining.United looked like coming unstuck on the road again when Saido Berahino restored West Broms lead in the 65th minute, running clear of the defence to curl home a sixth goal in his breakthrough season.Blind rescued a point for United with his first goal for the club, sidefooting in from the edge of the penalty area following a lay-off from substitute Radamel Falcao.I am very disappointed because we played our best match of the season and the result is not good enough, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal. I have to be also happy because we created a lot of chances.Stephane Sessegnon put West Brom in front at The Hawthorns with a rasping shot in the eighth minute but Marouane Fellaini equalized in the 48th, having come on as a halftime substitute to give United more of a physical presence.Fellaini chested down a cross from Angel Di Maria, shrugged off his marker and smashed in a rising shott from just inside the area for his first goal since joining from Everton in August 2013. Marlins Jerseys 2019. United dropped to sixth place on 12 points from eight games, and is without a win in four away matches this campaign.In my opinion, its eight points too few, said Van Gaal, whose defence remains his biggest problem.There was no defender near the 21-year-old Berahino as he raced onto Chris Brunts pass and whipped a shot inside the far post, enhancing his blossoming reputation that could soon earn him an England call-up. Berahino has scored in each of his last four games.Left back Luke Shaw was also out of position for Sessegnons goal, with Andre Wisdom given space to race down the right and cross for the forward to slam a first-time shot into the top corner.United, without suspended captain Wayne Rooney, piled on the pressure in the second half and looked the likelier scorer after Fellainis equalizer.Berahino scored from a rare breakaway from the hosts and after Robin van Persie volleyed against the post in the 74th minute, fellow Dutchman Blind popped up to rescue United with a neat finish.
