Colts' Polian ends radio show early because of irate fans
As president of the Indianapolis Colts, Bill Polian without question has been one of the most effective NFL executives during the past decade. Perhaps the best.
Before that he made the personnel moves that helped get the Buffalo Bills to three Super Bowls, plus one more the season after he left.
But none of that mattered last night when he took calls from irate Colts fans on his weekly radio show on HANK-FM.
StampedeBlue.com reports the show ended about 10 minutes early, apparently because of the wave of outrage over Indianapolis pulling its starters early in Sunday's loss to the Jets. As the website said, Polian essentially pulled himself early this time.
Callers drilled Polian's logic that injured players need to be protected, pointing out that the key ones who were benched -- Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark -- didn't have any health issues.
