HOUSTON - OCTOBER 05: Team president Bill Polian of the Indianapolis Colts wlaks on the field during warmups for the game with the Houston Texans on October 5, 2008 at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas. The Colts won 31-27. (Photo by Stephen Dunn/Getty Images)

ESPN announced today that Bill Polian would be joining their squad of mediocre analysts. This is something I take issue with, as it's just another reason for me to detest the four-letter network. The idea of Bill Polian being an analyst is ludicrous to me.

To say that Polian experienced success as a GM is an understatement. His Bills teams went to four straight Super Bowls, losing all four. He led the Panthers within a game of the Super Bowl in just their second year of existence, and he brought the Colts some level of respectability, building two Super Bowl squads and winning the big game once. Yes, the guy can put together a team.

My problem with him is he treats the media -- all media -- like garbage, especially bloggers. The fact that he's been added to ESPN is laughable. He'll likely give us a lot of solid information that Trent Dilfer and Herm Edwards could never dream of providing, but I'm afraid I'll never be able to respect his insight. Hell, I'm likely to pay devil's advocate just because I can't stand the thought of him being right.

I'd like to take this moment to thank ESPN for adding Bill Polian to their crew. The move only drives me farther from watching ESPN productions than I had already been. For that, ESPN, I thank you.
