HEAD COACH COMPARISON
Coaching Years in NFL: 12th YearColts Head Coach: 2nd YearOverall Regular Season: 15-7 (.682)Overall Postseason: 0-1 (.000)Chuck Pagano's 2012 season proved to be one ofthe most inspirational stories in NFL history. Namedhead coach of the Indianapolis Colts on January25, 2012, Pagano was forced to take a leave of ab-sence just three games into the season after being diagnosed withacute promyelocytic leukemia, a curable form of the disease, whichis a cancer of the blood and bone marrow cells.
Offensive Coordinator Bruce Arians assumed interim head coachingduties and he and the Colts defied the odds and rallied to a 9-3 record.During that time frame, Indianapolis secured a playoff berth and ac-complished one of their primary goals extending the season forPagano. Some of the victories during Arians' term included a come-back win against Green Bay (Week 5) after trailing by 18 points, anovertime victory on the road at Tennessee (Week 8) and a last secondvictory in Detroit (Week 13). In all, the Colts posted a 9-1 record inone-possession games in 2012, including winning their last eight.As much as Chuck Pagano inspired the 2012 Colts, the team did justthe same for their ailing head coach. From his hospital bed, Paganowas in constant communication with the coaching staff and players.He analyzed practices while continuing to game-plan schemes. Alongthe way, Pagano continued to make his presence felt. After the team'sWeek 9 victory against Miami, the head coach gave a moving post-game speech to the contingent in the locker room."I've got circumstances," Pagano told the locker room. "You guysunderstand it, I understand it. It's already beat (referring to theleukemia). It's already beat. My vision that I'm living is to see twomore daughters get married, dance at their weddings and then hoistthat Lombardi Trophy several times."Pagano made another return three weeks later during the team'swin against Buffalo where he appeared in Owner & CEO Jim Irsay'ssuite while saluting the crowd on hand. Pagano received a rousingovation from Colts fans in attendance.As the regular season came to an end, the culmination of Arians'stretch as interim head coach concluded with the team's playoff-clinching victory at Kansas City (Week 16). The stage was set forPagano to return after missing 12 weeks of action.Division rival Houston visited Lucas Oil Stadium in the regular sea-son finale in hopes of clinching the AFC's No. 1 seed in the playoffs.The Colts were not deterred, however, as the team corralled theemotion in Pagano's return and compiled a 28-16 win to finish theregular season with an 11-5 record. The real victory, however, wasthe return of a healthy Chuck Pagano. It was a day the Colts organ-ization and fans will remember for generations.Indianapolis' playoff run ended earlier than the team had wishedafter falling to the eventual Super Bowl XLVII champion BaltimoreRavens in an AFC Wild Card playoff contest. What was not lostwere the numerous team and individual milestones that the Coltsestablished in a season facing low expectations. Most notably, the11-5 record was a nine-win improvement from the 2011 campaign,which tied for the third-largest one-year turnaround in NFL history.The Colts also registered their 12th 10-plus win season in the past14 years, which is the most of any NFL team since 1999. Paganoand Arians were honored together by the Maxwell Football Club asthe recipients of the 24th Annual Earle "Greasy" Neale Award forProfessional Coach of the Year. The two also garnered AFC Coachof the Year honors as winners of the annual NFL 101 Awards.Pagano was selected by the PFWA as the winner of the 2013George Halas Award, given to an NFL player, coach or staff mem-ber who overcame the most adversity to succeed. Each year, theFritz Pollard Alliance Foundation recognizes individuals who makea difference in diversity and inclusion at an annual awards banquet.In February of 2013, Pagano received the foundation's Game BallAward for the differences he has made to level the playing field inthe NFL for minorities.

RYAN GRIGSON NOTES
Years in NFL: 15th YearColts General Manager: 2nd YearIn his first season as the general manager of theIndianapolis Colts, Ryan Grigson served as the ar-chitect of a team that generated one of the biggestturnarounds in franchise and NFL history. Havingturned over nearly 70 percent of the roster from the2011 campaign, Grigson constructed an 11-5 teamthat reached the AFC Playoffs. The nine-win turnaround from theprevious season is tied for the third-largest in league history. Withthe success came many accolades for Grigson, including Executiveof the Year honors from PFW/PFWA and The Sporting News. Hewas also honored with the Drew Brees Mental Toughness Awardby the National Football Foundation in June of 2013.
Inheriting a team that had gone 2-14 in 2011, Grigsons first acqui-sition was the hiring of Head Coach Chuck Pagano. After workingin conjunction with Pagano to assemble a 19-member coachingstaff, Grigson completed more than 250 transactions in his first sea-son to fortify the roster. With limited resources available in the 2012offseason, he used his industrious nature to bolster a young teamby retaining key veteran leadership such as Reggie Wayne, RobertMathis and Cory Redding. Grigson also demonstrated his innova-tion by acquiring talent from other leagues, such as the AFL, IFL,UFL and CFL. A total of eight players (six through free agency andtwo through trades) became starters for the Colts last year.Grigsons first draft class was headlined by Andrew Luck, who setNFL rookie marks in passing yards (4,374), attempts (627), 300-yard games (six) and single-game yards (433). Luck directed 11wins as a starter, two shy of the NFL rookie record, and his sevencomeback wins tied the most by any quarterback since 1970. In ad-dition to reaching the playoffs, Luck, along with Mathis and Wayne,earned Pro Bowl nods.Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen, T.Y. Hilton, Vick Ballard (the clubsleading rusher) and LaVon Brazill combined to help the draft classproduce 3,108 scrimmage yards, the highest total by any NFLrookie class since 1970. Prior to 2012, the last team to have rookieslead a squad in rushing and passing was the 1943 New York Giants.Indianapolis rookies combined to start in 56 games, which rankedsecond to the Cleveland Browns (87).The teams astonishing success in 2012 came despite numerousobstacles. Indianapolis transitioned to new offensive and defensiveschemes and placed 13 players on Injured Reserve. However, themost challenging hurdle for the Colts was the loss of Pagano for 12weeks during the regular season as he battled leukemia.The Colts responded by rallying around their ailing head coach towin nine of their last 11 games to finish second in the AFC Southand earn the AFCs fifth playoff seed. By seasons end, only 16 play-ers remained from 2011. The Colts were also playing with nine rook-ies and 33 players with three-or-fewer years of NFL experience.Indianapolis became the second team in NFL history to win 10-or-more games after losing 14-or-more the previous season and to-taled a 9-1 record in games decided by one possession or lessduring 2012s historic campaign. The Colts were just the third NFLteam to make the playoffs one year after going 2-14 or worse andbecame the fourth team to win at least 10 games after a season oftwo-or-fewer victories. Of 37 NFL teams in history to have lost 14-or-more games in a season, the Colts were just the sixth to bounceback with a winning record.Following the 2012 season, Grigson had an aggressive and suc-cinct approach to signing veteran talent through free agency. Hiswork yielded successful and productive players such as: RB-AhmadBradshaw, T-Gosder Cherilus, DT-Aubrayo Franklin, QB-Matt Has-selbeck, WR-Darrius Heyward-Bey, DT-Ricky Jean Francois, S-LaRon Landry, LB-Lawrence Sidbury, G-Donald Thomas, CB-GregToler and LB-Erik Walden. Prior to the start of the 2013 season, thefree agent class represented a combined 863 regular seasongames played (534 starts), four Pro Bowl selections, seven confer-ence championship game appearances and four Super Bowl ap-pearances.
GENERAL MANAGER RYAN GRIGSON Grigson also executed two trades during the 2013 offseason. Thefirst came with the Philadelphia Eagles as the Colts acquired full-back Stanley Havili in exchange for defensive end Clifton Geathers.Indianapolis then made a trade with Buffalo, which sent linebackerJerry Hughes to the Bills in exchange for linebacker Kelvin Shep-pard. Sheppard, a third-round selection in the 2011 NFL Draft,started his first two seasons for Buffalo.In the 2013 NFL Draft, Grigson used seven selections to addressneeds on the offensive and defensive lines as well as providingdepth at skill positions. With the teams first-round pick, the Coltsadded Florida State outside linebacker Bjoern Werner, a unanimousAll-America selection and ACC Defensive Player of the Year afterleading the conference with 13.0 sacks in 2012. The selections ofguard Hugh Thornton (third-round) and center/guard KhaledHolmes (fourth-round) will make an immediate impact on the offen-sive line. The Colts traded up to acquire defensive tackle MontoriHughes (fifth-round). Hughes, along with safety John Boyett (sixth-round), running back Kerwynn Williams (seventh-round) and tightend Justice Cunningham (seventh-round), will provide significantdepth at their position groups.
MAKING TRADESRyan Grigson has completed 16 trades since being hired as Gen-eral Manager in January of 2012. Current Colts players on the 53-man activer roster acquired through trade have gone on to appearin 83 combined games for the team, making 37 starts. A few notableplayers acquired through trade include:Cornerback Vontae Davis - In 2012, totaled 53 tackles (40 solo),seven passes defensed and three interceptions. Named AFCDe-fensive Player of the Week after intercepting two passes vs. Hous-ton (12/30/12).Fullback Stanley Havili - Appeared in five games (four starts) in2013 and helped block for the Colts to record four straight 100-plusrushing yard games to open the season for the first time since 1988.Wide Receiver T.Y. Hilton - Colts traded up in the 2012 NFLDraftto acquire Hilton. Posted five 100-yard receiving performances in2012, a Colts rookie record.Running Back Trent Richardson - Third overall pick in the 2012NFLDraft. Scored a rushing touchdown in each of his first twogames as a member of the Colts.Inside Linebacker Kelvin Sheppard - Has appeared in six games(two starts) in 2013 and has totaled 19 tackles (11 solo), 1.0 sackand one pass defensed.
NEVER-ENDING SEARCHRyan Grigson not only finds players through college and NFL scout-ing, but also searches for talent in several other leagues across theworld. Since 2012, Grigson has signed 12 players from the Cana-dian Football League, Areana Football League, Indoor FootballLeague and United Football League. Grigson has also reached out-side of football into Super 15 Rugby, the highest level of pro rugbyin the world.Inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman (CFL) and long snapper MattOverton (IFL, UFL) continue to make significant contributions on theactive roster, while Daniel Adongo (Super 15 Rugby) resides on thepractice squad.In 2012, Freeman set a franchise record and ranked fifth in the NFLwith 203 tackles for the season. He also became the first undraftedColts player to return an interception for a touchdown in his debut.In 2013, Freeman already has 3.0 sacks for the season and becameonly the fourth undrafted Colts player to record 2.0-or-more sacksin a game when he did so against Miami (9/15).Overton has appeared in all 21 games since 2012, handling snap-ping duties for punter Pat McAfee and kicker Adam Vinatieri. In2012, he snapped for McAfee to set franchise records in puntingaverage (48.2), net punting average (40.3), punts inside the 20 (26)and 50.0-yard gross average games (five).
