    The damage has been done. The NFL is now arena football.

    New regimes = new quarterbacks.

    Manning will probably not be on the Colts next year. I hope he isn't wearing green and white.

    Me too. It's a ri-OT.

    EDIT: Get it? Like PatriOTS? Polian always said "Patri-OTS"? get it? OK ...never mind.

    Wonder if those mid-day guys on 98.5 still think the Colts and Jets are the model franchises the Pats should be modeled after. Kind of been their schtick whenever I had the bad judgment to put them on the last couple of years.

    He had a pretty disappointing performance on the rules committee this year. He really tried to eliminate the forward pass a week before the season started, but some others resisted his suggestion.

    Not surprising to me at all.

    That team has zero talent on defense outside of Freeney, Mathis and Bethea and hasn't been able to draft to save its life.

    The offensive line is also a mess.

    The loss of Manning exposed the Polian's poor talent evaluation abilities.

    IMO Irsay made a wise choice.

    Waiting for the other shoe to drop with Caldwell.

    I imagine it may take a couple years to get that ship righted. When you see other teams have success when a QB goes down, I guess ownership figured the problem came from personnel.

    and I'm good with it, even ifthe team improves over the long haul.

    EDIT: Does this mean Indy still maintains it's position on the competition committee?

    I heard differently. I had heard that he tried to take defenses off the field when the Colts offense is on it and replace those defenses with Fatheads of themselves.

    Bedard: The Polians got fired? Somewhere Belichick has his feet up with a stogie cackling like De Niro in Cape Fear.

    With the Polians gone, are Kraft and BB the most powerful management combo in the NFL?

    If so, nice... :cool:

    Has ANYONE seen Deus Irae own up yet?

    Where is his "Indianapolis is the MOST SUCCESSFUL NFL franchise of the last 12 years" argument????

    He has never admitted to ever being wrong on this website. Let's see him spin this beauty!!! :D :D :D

    Was Polian in favor of drafting Luck?

    Hopefully Indy will dismantle and be willing to trade away their DEs and WR for middle rounders......

    1.) I've admitted to being wrong on many an occasion.

    2.) I've already posted in the thread.

    3.) Quit being misleading about what I said.

    You argued on this forum that the Indianapolis Colts were the most consistently successful NFL team of the past 12 years.

    What's misleading about that?

    This isn't great for the rest of the AFC.

    The Polian clique was over-rated after Manning and Freeney (maybe Mathis too); and just like the imminent departure (IMHO) of Brainy Brian Schottenheimer, it's bad news for the Patriots and all other AFC opponents. Their replacements might just be.... competent :eek:

    Let's keep the rest of the conference hobbled by mediocrity. It's extra padding, and helps to ensure a Patriot supremacy.

    Nope. That number one pick gives the new regime a chance to start anew with a new face of the franchise. If anything, Polian's firing, in my opinion, makes releasing/trading Manning a bigger possibility for the Colts.

    I think that it's great that Polian is out.

    I would not be surprised if Jerry Jones attempted to get Manning to replace Romo.. Nor would I be surprised if Shanahan tried to get Peyton either. If AL was still around, I'd say that AL would try to get Manning..

    I don't see Manning going to the Jets.. I just don't think they can afford him..

    Prior to this season, the Colts had double digit wins in 11 of the previous 12 seasons.


    Please point out all the teams that were 12 of 12.
