Yes he was definitely thoroughly out coached. That's why the game was tied going to the 4th. Not to mention, barely 2 days of practice and traveling 3 time zones, which hadn't been done since 1975 had nothing to do with anything.
Pagano's defense=frequent blitzes, 9 sacks, and intense pressure in the quarterbacks face all the time.
Fangio's defense=Watch Flacco sit back in the pocket for 5 or 6 seconds, take his time picking the defense apart and moving the ball up the field, zero sacks for the day and basically zero blitzes utilized.
Call it whatever you want, Pagano had a much better gameplan than Fangio did.
