Dear Colts Fans, Next Year, Chris Polian is the Exec of the Year

Ok. We suck this year. Unfortunately for those of you who want the Polians gone, it isn't gonna happen. Here's why:

The Colts are set up for such a rebound next year that my living room recliner could win Executive of the Year.

Many of the decisions are simply going to be made by default like Manning's health: either he can play or he is done. There's simply no room for a human being to screw the decision up... 

At this point, the situation is this:

  1. The current GOAT will be back.  If he's not, you get 30% of your salary cap back.
  2. The next anointed great QB will be on the sidelines.
  3. Enough big contracts are up that there will be cap space anyway.
  4. You cannot do worse than this year, period. 
  5. The Coach is the scapegoat and the actual, real goat at the same time.  How could a team with Wayne, Dallas Clark, Jeff Saturday, Bethea, Joe Addai, and Freeney and Mathi be this bad?  Hmm... must be the coaching... 
That means that regardless of Manning coming back or not, whoever is GM next year gets to take credit for:
  • Winning more games
  • Drafting Luck.
  • Making the "Manning Decision"
  • Setting up the next coaching staff for success with all the great players...
In other words, we're all just passenger on this one, and all the Polians have to do is survive until next year.  Get used to more smugness... which I'll accept if it means 10 more years of great football.
