Indianapolis Colts‘ head coach Chuck Pagano is never pleased with a loss, but following Sunday’s defeat at the hands of the Chicago Bears, he saw a lot of positives from his younger players.

We kind of expected it because we saw it in preseason, and you can say, ‘Well it’s preseason,’ but it’s the same thing. It wasn’t too big for them and Coby (Fleener) played as good a game as he’s played since he’s been here counting the preseason the catches that he made and then the run game. He did a nice job in the run game. Kris (Adams) made plays. So there were a lot of young guys that did a lot of great things.” (more…)
