Bill Polian was at the Stanford vs Duke game, watching ANDREW LUCK

1

I don't care that you think this team is going 15-1 you koolaid drinking idiots but here are the facts we suck without a great qb and luck is a great qb 2. Peyton Manning might win the MVP of the league without playing. Things will get better for Indianapolis without the invaluable Manning; either that or they'll be in the UFL by mid-October. But the most striking event of Week 1 was how bad the Colts were in falling behind to Houston 34-0 at the half. Indy and the Texans had met 18 times before Sunday, with the Colts winning 16. In none of those games had the Texans exceeded 34 points, but they had that in 30 minutes in this season's opener for both teams. "It's a marathon, not a sprint,'' coach Jim Caldwell said bravely afterward, but I don't know how anybody can buy that the Colts will contend with Manning possibly out for the year after Thursday neck surgery. More about this later, but the fact that president Bill Polian was watching Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck play at Duke on Saturday is a harbinger of an autumn where the Colts will do due diligence on every quarterback that might come out in the draft next April.
