INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Chuck Pagano walks into the Colts complex now and looks like his old self.
The graying goatee is back. The salt-and-pepper hair on top of his head is slowly returning. The clothes fit, and the 52-year-old coach sounds lively and passionate as he starts looking toward his second season in the NFL after staring down cancer.
Some people might be tempted to label Pagano the unluckiest man in football in 2012. He barely missed reaching the Super Bowl, lost Peyton Manning before he ever coached a game and was diagnosed with leukemia three weeks into his first season as a head coach.
Pagano, however, considers himself the luckiest guy in football.
