    Bill Polian and Chris Polian are gone at Indy according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. It’s a worrisome development. Bill Polian was a rare front office guy who didn’t completely cave to the caste system. Could Tony Dungy be heading to the Colts in the front office? If the report is accurate, it’s disappointing that the fans were calling for the Polians to be fired.


    Source: Polians out with Colts

    ESPN.com news services
    Colts vice chairman Bill Polian and general manager Chris Polian are out in Indianapolis, a source told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen.
    The Colts (2-14) finished with fewer than three wins for only the second time since moving to Indianapolis in 1984, and fans have been calling for the ouster of the Polians and coach Jim Caldwell.
    The Colts will pick No. 1 overall in the 2012 draft. The 20 non-playoff teams know where they'll pick, aside from coin flips that will break ties for the Nos. 8 and 11 picks. Draft Order
    Franchise quarterback Peyton Manning missed the entire season because of neck surgery.
    Manning had neck surgery Sept. 8, the third and most invasive procedure he'd had in 19 months. Doctors fused two of Manning's vertebrae together, hoping that would fix a damaged nerve that caused weakness in Manning's throwing arm.
    With Manning, many expected the Colts to be a Super Bowl contender again with the possibility that the championship game would be a home game as Indianapolis is hosting the game in February.
    Without him, Indianapolis went through three different quarterbacks, lost its first 13 games and wound up with the No. 1 overall pick in April's draft -- the first time they've had that selection since 1998 when they chose Manning over Ryan Leaf.
    Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

    Instead of firing their incompetent head coach who looks completely lost on the field at times and who lost 13 in a row! Geez does not make sense..

    Polian was the least anti-White GM in the NFL going back to his days with the Bills. His teams usually had among the most White players of any roster. . .

    The Irsay family isn't the most loyal clan to anybody but themselves. Watch the ESPN doc on the Colts leaving Baltimore. Maybe Robert Jr. wants to be the new "Al Davis".
