ok, so i am the new gm of the colts.....bet this pays better than the old job does!!
first, some boilerplate--
i dont have access to real game film, or true insider info. i will use (for now) cbs sportline as my database for my evaluation of potential players, because 1) i already read a lot there, and 2) the colts play on cbs.
i have followed a lot of the conversations in the forum for a few years. certain posters have a lot of credibility in my view, and i wiil shamelessly steal from them every chance i get.
i see the world thru fan-colored glasses. my experience with 'management' over the years has been that these guys are heartless. new management typically means that i have to fire the first guy on the old crew that looks at me wrong-- just to show my power-- never mind the guy had a legit point. this is NOT what i want to do-- replace the old-boy network with a new-boy one. current players and anyone in the org keep their positions unless i can improve on them. we run a merit shop here boys.
i liked polian. i will steal from him every chance i get. 'past is prologue' indeed!
we still are gonna play very similar defenses, the cap means i cant have it all, and manning or luck, i am committed to spending more on 'O' so its a 4/3 D.
we will be talking to the local media (except bob kravitz-- just because).
