Coach Pags has Leukemia

This sucks on several levels.

Damn, I hope for a speedy recovery. Even if it's not speedy, a full recovery at least.

Hoping for a recovery. With how visible and followed people around sports are, times like this make you realize they are normal with families just like us.

I'm hearing it's a "treatable" form but leukemia in general is pretty horrible. Cancer of any type is, obviously, but cancer of either the blood or bone marrow... this is awful. The best he can hope for is a lot of pain and misery but with full recovery.

He's been feeling a strange level of fatigue all summer but noticed recently that he was bruising very easily. I hope he's gets through this even if it means he's out for the season or even done with football. He seems like a genuinely good guy and while the football fan in me is upset that Bruce Arians is the interim HC and Greg Manusky is now solely in charge of the defense, I know Pags has a wife and youngish kids and this will be hard on them all.

Didn't see BB started a thread in the NFL forum: http://draftcountdown.com/forum/showthread.php?t=54001

I hope he makes a full recovery.

Hopefully he makes a full recovery and all that stuff. Too early to evaluate him as a HC, but he certainly looks & sounds like the type of guy you'd want for the job. Plus, he's been a coach forever and its great to see a guy work through the ranks to get to the top.

FWIW this is the cruch-time for our schedule:
GB, @NYJ, CLE, @TEN, MIA , @JAX

That's 5 winnable games, and there aren't many winnable games after this stretch.

Quote:

According to the National Cancer Institute, acute promyelocytic leukemia – the type with which Pagano was diagnosed – is an “aggressive (fast-growing) type of acute myeloid leukemia in which there are too many immature blood-forming cells in the blood and bone marrow.”

For patients who are promptly diagnosed with APL, the "disease-free survival" rate can be as high as 90% if the patient undergoes certain treatment regimens, the institute says.

He won't be back coaching this year as Irsay alluded to today. Hope he can win this battle and keep his health.

Sorry to hear about it. What a terrible timing! Wish him the healthiest recovery.
