Great, that should help them out

Chuck has been an inspiration to so many and Bruce Arians has done a really nice job filling in on a team that wasn't expected to do much and is now the fifth seed in the AFC.

Arians should be coach of the year, in my opinion.

I imagine he'll stay with the Colts for another season or two, but it won't be much longer before he gets his own HC gig.

I am glad to see Coach Pagano coming back. I have lost friends and family to cancer and it is great to see someone beat it. Coach Arians has done a great job with the Colts in a difficult situation, both with a young team and the weight of Coach Pagano's health on the whole team's minds. I for one as a Browns fan would like to see Coach Arians show up in another midwest city as their head coach!

Let's hope they finish well. I'd hate to see him come back and they go 0 - 2. They've got the Chiefs and Texans to finish.
