Bruce Arians was officially retired for two days.
Pagano didn't need a hard sell to get Arians back on the sidelines. Now the Colts' new offensive coordinator is earning a positive reputation in the Indy locker room.

"He's not going to sugarcoat anything," Wayne said. "He's going to try to correct you and make you the best you can be. If you're a veteran guy, you've got to understand that and take the good with the bad.
"I appreciate that. I can handle that. I'm glad he's here."
And somewhere back east, a single tear rolls down the cheek of a burly quarterback in a No. 7 jersey.
