According to this Irsay shot Polian down when he said "We need to trade Peyton; we can get a bunch of defensive players and become like Tampa Bay or Baltimore."
What in the world? That marks at least the 2nd major decision where Irsay either overruled Polian or made the decision for him (the other being that Polian said it was a toss up with Luck and Griffith and Irsay chose Luck). Starting to wonder how many other bad decisions that Irsay overruled Polian on to help make the Colts the franchise they are today. Trading any player is a risky proposition. I can't imagine trading one of the all time great QB's for "a bunch of defensive players" like Polian was suggesting. Has anyone else seen or heard about this before?
On an unrelated note, posting and editing on SBNation sucks.
