this was a good move by irsay, this has notting to do with Peyton Manning not comeing back... they have paid a lot of vets record seting money and with out Manning all they can do is win 2 games, polian has had some of the worst Drafts in the NFL the last few year plus if he wants to bring in a big name HC they wont take the job with Polian breathing down there neck
Personal feelings about the guy aside, it's about time. Even before Peyton's injury I kept saying "Hello, media, how can you possibly not notice that Polian has not managed to draft a single impact player in the top 3 rounds since 2004??" Just an AWFUL draft record -- and a franchise with a no-middle-class approach to team building needs strong drafts.
Then to top it all off, he's Bill Polian. <shudder> Adios!
Will Irsay follow in his fathers footsteps and completely dismantle an older winning team and trade away their leader. Bob Irsay dismantled an aging Colts team and traded away Unitas to the Chargers. It worked for a few years in the mid 70s. He then overruled his coach and GM and blinked, trading away Elway for a sack of footballs.
I thought Elway refused to play for the Colts and threatened to play baseball with the Yankees if they didn't trade him, essentially holding the Colts hostage and decreasing what they could get in a trade.
They've had some pretty suspect drafts the past few years, not as atrocious as ours, but definitely not what you'd expect from a perennial contender. Pollian was exposed once Manning went down and the team fell apart.
For some reason, i think you aren't being sarcastic and actually think that the Pats drafts have been bad.. *sigh*
