Chuck Pagano isn’t worried about job security

The Colts dropped to 3-4 on Sunday with a 27-21 loss to the Saints in a game that saw them fall behind by 27 points before they rallied to make the score look more presentable.

The game featured another disappointing performance from quarterback Andrew Luck and the same mediocre play on the offensive line and defense that have plagued the Colts all season, none of which reflects well on head coach Chuck Pagano or General Manager Ryan Grigson. Given the fact that Pagano is in the final year of his contract and reports that he has doubts about returning to Indianapolis, you might expect him to have some concern about seeing out the rest of this season.

On Monday, Pagano said that wasn’t the case. He said that he’s “not at all” worried about his job security with games at Carolina and at home against Denver coming in the next two weeks.

“I got another day,” Pagano said, via Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star. “So it’s a good day. Don’t judge, just keep moving forward.”

It’s a pretty good life philosophy and it might explain why Pagano wouldn’t spend much time worrying about how long he’ll be coaching the Colts, but it feels like running the current losing streak to four games before the bye will at least keep the possibility of a change on the table for a team that’s failed to make good on expectations this season.
