My favorite Polian quote of late:
“I’m baffled. Truthfully, it’s hard to envision with the kind of people we have upfront that we can be this porous in the secondary.”
- Bill Polian
I'm not sure what Polian has been doing for the last 6 years, but our front has been pretty bad the entire time.
2010 Adjusted sack rate - Bottom 3
2009 Adjusted sack rate - Bottom 4
2008 Adjusted sack rate - Bottom 11
2007 Adjusted sack rate - Top 11!
2006 Adjusted sack rate - Bottom 2
Ok, lots of weird stats we can look at, and lots of simple ones. But basically the Colts up front have been awful against the pass for years, and he has done nothing to fix it. Partly it's due to our awful secondary, partly the awful interior D-line play, and partly Freeny and Mathis are over rated.
Polian is truly an idiot if he thinks this is all on the secondary. Our secondary is awful, no doubt, but so are the people we have up front, and they have been for years.
