  1. Two years ago when the Colts were playing the Jets, Polain pulled the first stringers. You could read it on the players faces, they wanted to play. Yes we were locked into the playoffs but it was like being told to quit and the players seemed to reflect that. We all know how we as fans felt about the decision. And it looks as if our perception to be angery was right. Yes we did have to play the Jets again and we also lost the Super Bowl. I personally felt that the decision was a very very bad one. But that game and the consequential after effects showed more than Polians bad judgment it also showed where we stood without Peyton. I will ALWAYS remember that game and Polian for letting that happen. Those players were cheated and we as fans were cheated as well. I will not forget it! Let's hope that this new begining will never be as angering as that one game was.
  2. I know it is very hard when a transition in staff occurs. All of your personal contacts are disrupted. And I understand that these changes have only been in the main office at this point. This will disrupt Peyton's Qi.But the real hurt will be when the cuts in the locker room begin.We must face it, there will be people we will lose that we as fans will be upset with, but the changes in the locker room equates to deaths in the family.I believe that this will be crushing for Peyton. I must admit that I am not a big Manning fan, I am a big Colts fan. But I would be the first to say we could not have achieved what the Colts have done without him. Yes, he is a fantastic Quarterback; but there had to be players catching those passes in order for him to have completions. It takes an O-line to protect him to get those passes off. It also requires a great Defense to get things done so he can have good field time in which to perform. That being said, Tony Dungy was a strong Defensive coach and so is the Pagano. I believe that we have some of the best Defensive players in the NFL. Freeney, Mathis, Bethea, Brackett, Nevis, Wheeler, and Angerer are all great. One can only hope that we can afford to keep them. Giving the time to learn a new defense this could equate to even more playing time on the field for Peyton to finish his career here with a big bang. I most certainly hope that Peyton does heal quickly more in aspect for himself, because that is most important. But nothing would make me happier than to see him back in there with a gleam in is eye and in no uncertain terms telling the entire NFL that he is most definitely back. And as a COLT! If we do secure any Quarterback can you imagine any one that could better mentor them into the NFL? Let the newbie see how it is done with the Big boys, and let the new guy have at it.
