"I mentioned before the game that you guys were living in a vision, and you weren't living in circumstances," Pagano said. "You know where they had us in the beginning, every last one of them. But you refused to live in circumstances and you decided consciously as a team and as a family to live in a vision, and that's why you bring things home like what you bring home today. That's why you're already champions and well on your way."
