“Extremely proud of all of them, the coaches and the players. We took this thing over a couple years ago. They had left us for dead. 2-14 [in 2011]. Rookie [general manager], rookie [head] coach, rookie quarterback. We can go on and on,” Pagano voiced.
“All we did as a group of players and coaches was make a decision that we weren’t going to live in circumstances. We were going to live in vision. We were going to go to work. Again, hats off to the players and coaches. Got the best owner in the National Football League. He gives us everything we need to be successful. [General manager] Ryan [Grigson] and his crew do an unbelievable job of getting us players. But it’s the guys. It’s their resiliency. They don’t read the clippings, good or bad, listen to talk radio and all that stuff. And everybody telling them what they can’t do. We always talk about faith is believing in something that you can’t see and the reward is if you believe in it long enough, you’ll probably get to see it. Our journey continues and we’re very excited to be in the playoffs.”
