I don't think the guy is a genius but he has done some amazing stuff as a GM. Buffalo Bills 4 straight Super Bowls anyone? Panthers one game away in their second year.
Gotta give credit where credit is due.

in fact he's just getting everything he deserves.
he might have been pretty good once upon a time but that means what exactly right now?
he's been coasting for a looooooong time on that crap.

It happened here with Richardson. Polian is actually a tremendous person and a stand up guy but he's always been a GM that really wanted to be an owner deep down imho. Being good family friends, I have the up most respect for him but that was a tough situation the past few years. The fans really didn't like how he tried replace himself with Chris...pretty much trying to gain more say into FO & personnel decisions than Irsay himself.
The Polians will still be all over. You got the young son in Stanford trying to become a solid assistant coach, Chris will still have a future in the NFL, Bill will be on ESPN (probably live back at his place in Charlotte more)...and Luck will probably end up the Colts QB with Irsay becoming an Owner/GM land Manning being groomed into a Elway-esque managerial position in Indy.
That's what I've heard so far...(oh and that Manning is most likely done playing in the league)

if you aren't doing anything to improve the team and you are relying on the best/smartest QB to ever play the game that acts as his own offensive coordinator...then yeah, he's been coasting, esp. the past 5 years.
So 10 years of playoffs is coasting? Sign me up. Hurney would be doing what then?

did he not know it was likely for peyton to have that 3rd surgery? did he not check out the possibility that peyton might not recover from it? you thihnk he was surprised by any of this? if he was surprised and didn't know it was possibile then he's a fool. if he knew that this was likely and he did it anyway...he's still a fool.
send the man to canton.

I would argue that this could also be as much Mannings fault as Bills. You think Peyton wants the heir apparent looking over his shoulder? Who calls the plays on offesnse? The whole team knew where the leverage was. Eggs in one basket and all.
If Luck is as good as everyone thinks thats back to back once in a lifetime franchise qb's. Bad Bill Polian. Bad.

Dan Snyder should be on their new GM's speed dial
