10:50 AM ET 10.07 | Chuck Pagano reached out to his team Friday from his hospital bed. While the focus of the Indianapolis Colts coach is on receiving treatment for leukemia at IU Health Simon Cancer Center, he has kept in constant contact with interim coach Bruce Arians, his players and others in the organization. Pagano's latest communiqu??: an email to the team. Arians declined to share its message. "Very private,'' he said. "He sent it to every player. Very long.'' Arians plans to read it at the team meeting today as part of the preparation for Sunday's meeting with the Green Bay Packers at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Best of luck to you, coach, and best of luck to your team to give you a win to speed you on your recovery.

Best wishes to Coach Pagano. It's a good thing they have Arians who has been around the league for a while. Still, this whole rebuilding thing is going to be ugly for the Colts.

Pagano's a good guy. You can beat this, Chuck. Go Colts!

You gotta hear these idots on ESPN proclaiming the Packers the number one team in the NFL. Idiots they are.... Carter, Berman, Johnson, Coach and TJ. Yearly they sound more like "Sapp & Irvin", the state of commentary today.......geez!

Feel good story of the season.

Unless he's not really sick, NFL games are all scripted and fixed, and pro football is as fake as wrestling and elections.

That was one helluva performance by Luck, Wayne and the Indy D in the 2nd half. Great win for the Colts.
