Kravitz: Irsay chose well

Bob Kravitz not only broke the news of Bill Polian’s ouster but also weighs in on the merits of the decision:

In the end, wins and losses and draft grades didn’t do in Bill Polian. Bill Polian did in Bill Polian. He just became too difficult, too polarizing, too divisive, too dismissive of anybody and everybody who didn’t share in NFL world-view. Too often, he became a side-show and an embarrassment, whether it was screaming at Jay Mohr on the radio or railing about “rats who spread lies.’’

This franchise needed new eyes. It needed a new direction, a new culture, a new everything. These are weird and exciting times for the Indianapolis Colts and this city, fraught with promise and uncertainty.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
