Colts coach Chuck Pagano is keeping things loose this week. He doesn't want Saturday's playoff game against Kansas City to change the routine, so he's imploring the Colts to make this week business as usual. Conventional wisdom suggests teams must play harder and players and coaches must work harder. Playoff veterans know better. Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles remembers losing two fumbles in his first playoff game.
And NFL sacks champ Robert Mathis insists players need to have fun.
They know whoever stays true to form, usually wins.
