KB and Ealy have character issues? What?  Hardy could miss half the year? What?  Irsay must have gotten Polian hooked on that stuff while Polian was up there.

Polian thinks the entire Panthers' franchise is a character concern for christ's sake. Who gives a damn what this guy thinks. His attitude towards Newton is never going to change because he can't admit being wrong. I hope Ealy and Benjamin continue the trend.

If KB lives up to his potential then this was a great draft.

This is pretty much the case for all picks.  Wonder how many times GM's look back on the season and say "Gee, things would have turned out so much better if only our ESPN draft grade had been a B+ instead of a C"?

 

Draft grades are based on what a team does in terms of addressing needs and seems to negate reaching and does not really reward value picks.  To me they are kind of like horoscopes.  A lot of people read them, some for fun but a handful including their authors, take them seriously.

Polian is about to dislocated his shoulder patting himself on the back because of his own drafting genius on defense...but the D is what always held the Colts back.

Polian is so overrated it's criminal.

The bottom line is that all these idiots are speculating. Only the actual general managers have all of the information. Polian is an outsider looking in on the process. His opinion is irrelevant and uninformed.

first I heard about character issues with Kony.  Every report I've read say he is a 

high character guy.

polian, o boy this guy........... he proved that so long you have a franchise QB, it covers up lots of huge mistakes. 

 

two things bill did GREAT

 

#1- find a franchise QB

#2- hit on 1st rounders

 

#3-#8,947,895- royal fcuk shitt up

 

for a good laugh go back and checkout polians' history drafting in 3rd round(or any rounds not 1st). if you think marty hernia failed, polain was worst. just sad what having a QB will buy you nearly anything. seeing as bill didnt hit on a QB here, his results speak for themselves. i guess i could give some credit for his hiring of great quality personnel, but im going with him being lucky there.

what's his deal with Cam?

You got me? I think he's one that said Cam shouldn't be a top pick and just refuses to admit he was wrong. He still says both RG3 and Tannehill are better than Cam. Just pathetic.

I get the "character concerns" bit for kb for the media. Yes it's vastly overblown because of the skipped workout (which I think is false) and the lack of motivation his sophomore year. It's bs but I can see why a media outlet would write that.

For ealy? I have no clue.

The less we listen to Bill Polian (unless it's just for entertainments sake, or you can't help yourself) the better!!
