Why is that more on the coaches than the players?


They call the plays?

I did listen and I have listened to a ton of what he has said in the past. Polian does not like the Panthers and especially does not like Cam. He was on espn not to long ago bashing the Panthers and Cam while slurping Bob Griffin.

I do not want that man anywhere near this franchise ever again.


My thing with folks like Polian is if Brandt and Moon can both see that the offense changed why can't this fool. Second I don't care for these ex NFLers in the media. They never ever call out coaches for dumb play calling but everything is on the players.

And players execute them. Which do you think is more important?

If the play call tells the player to leave a thirty foot cushion on the receiver and the offense takes advantage of that over and over, then the play call is the problem, not the player.

If that is the case how are they 7-4 this year with a rookie starting. Must be some talent there somewhere.


Good draft/FA, better coaching, playing on emotional high for Pagano, good QB and weak schedule.

Polian knows more about football than anyone on the board. Just because you don't like what he said about your favorite player doesn't change the fact that he's among the smartest men in football, ever.


Try this...go to a Colts board and ask them what they thought of Polian and his son for their last few years in Indy. It might change your perspective a bit.

Not much choice if the player isn't good enough to play press without getting beat over the top. After the first 2 sneak up closer and make a play. What percentage of success in the game would you say depends on coaches vs players. I say 20% coaching 80% players.
