Listen to it....he should have charged the Panthers for that insight....other than the Godfrey backing...he was pretty much dead on.

I agree... His credibility was instantly shot when he said Charles Godfrey was a "quality player". I thought to myself, there is no way in hell this guy actually watches the Panthers play making comments like that. He's an analyst now, just a talking head that follows the other talking heads in the national media.

Not a chance he watches film on a small market, 3-8 Panthers team, let alone a nobody safety like Godfrey.

And Bill Gates thought computers would never need more than 640k of memory. Smart people screw up in their specialized field all the time.

Off subject but, your wrong. Bill Gates never said this. He said 640k "would last a great deal of time". Anyone in electronics or computer field knows you can never put boundaries or limits on these things because technology changes so fast. Not trying to attack you or anything just letting you know.

I have to be missing something on Charles Godfrey. I've never been high on him. He makes some great plays, but it seems like he completely blows 2-3 plays for every one great own he makes. Good safeties just don't do that. However, both the Fox staff and Rivera staff seem high on him. Say what you want about either as a head coach, but those two guys know defense. If both of them like him, it's gotta be me who's missing something.

Remember, Peyton Manning is making John Fox look like an offensive genius...

all i'm going to say is he's giving charles godfrey and the coaching staff waaaayyyy too much credit.

i think he's been given waaaaayyyyy too much credit for indy's success during the peyton year. his team sucked and he just happened to "win" the first draft pick the same year that probably the best QB in NFL history (or one of the best) entered the league. polian just rode the wave.

fwiw, i just remembered a couple discussions going on around the time that polian was fired about why he was fired and the perception people around the league have of him.

i'm just going to past the main part of it just in case anyone is interested...and in case someone disputes my assertion that polian was overrated.

it's not about the losing seasons. there's a whole lot more going on.

i started a thread a few weeks back about some of the things that was going on inside indy and how polian never wanted dungy as coach.

cut and pasted for your reading pleasure:

pretty interesting read...esp. considering those who wish that polian had stuck around here.

btw...if you're wondering about that "toxic" quote:

and i'll ask the same question...when was the last time he had a good draft? '06?

oh yeah...i just remembered what polian said about mike shula and saying that he's one of the best QB coaches in the league.

where's the success? where's the list of QBs he's turned into studs?

i'll get you started:

That's what he says he said, now. The actual quote was an off-the-cuff remark he made during their New Mexico days, so I'm sure he didn't mean it literally. However, the point still stands.

As soon as Godfrey came up, I got the natural inclination to disregard everything he said

Weather or not I agree there has to be something to Godfrey. Everyone from coaches ( past and current ) to commentators think he's a good player, as fans at some point we have to admit we may just be wrong. His misfires may be due to errors by other players or bad play call. Fox has made top defense year in and out loved him Rivera who has top D's on his resume loves him. Sometimes guns we are not as smart as we think we are.

Dudes a dick, and was ran out of town by the colts. He still has sower grapes from the panthers days and he will never be happy with our success.
