The Colts Authority:
I'm contractually obligated to mention yesterday's game.
The Falcons drubbed the Colts 31-7. In the game, we learned that the defense has no idea what it's doing out there. Curtis Painter is every bit as bad as he can be. Don Brown should be starting. Jim Caldwell has no idea what he's doing. Oh, and the Colts will probably get the #1 pick, meaning this franchise is likely to turn it around very quickly.
That about covers it.
I don't have it in me to rehash the hot flaming mess that was yesterday's game. I sat through it. That's penance enough.
Instead, I want to take this opportunity to examine the claims made by Bob Kravitz in yesterday's Star.
In it, Bob claims that Chris Polian is a 'toxic force' within the Colts organization. He then goes on to make a bevy of very specific claims.
The article was erroneous and irresponsible.
In the interest of full disclosure...I have nothing to disclose. The Polians have never done anything for ...

The Colts blogosphere erupted after Kravitz singled out Chris Polian's influence on the organization. Needless to say, the claims were pretty explosive which lead to many questioning the journalistic integrity of the local media's most despised member. Greg Cowan of Coltzilla breaks down the claims in the article and sums it up:
I believe Bob Kravtiz had sources that...
After the Indianapolis Colts proved they didn’t deserve to be on the field with the Falcons on Sunday, owner Jim Irsay gave the Polians (the father and son duo who run the team) a vote of confidence. But it could be his gentle way of starting the process that will end in good-bye. Bill Polian, the dad, built great teams in Buffalo and Carolina before coming to Indy. And...
In his Sunday Column, IndyStar Columnist Bob Kravitz writes that GM Chris Polian is at least partly to blame for the Colts 0-9 start. Kravitz cites former Colts employees – who spoke anonymously for various reasons – saying that Chris Polian “has been a toxic force who has brought this franchise to its knees for [...]
In wake of calling critics 'rats,' Bill Polian says he has good relationships with some of the coaches and scouts alleged to have been run off by his son and Colts GM Chris Polian.
The Indianapolis Colts are the NFL’s only winless team, and they’ve lost their last three games by a combined 96 points. But coach Jim Caldwell sees some fire in his team. “You can see that they are going to fight you until the end,” Caldwell said after Sunday’s loss to the Falcons. “They’re just going…
If I'm properly reading between the lines, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is more committed to staying the course with the Family Polian than he is coach Jim Caldwell.
"I haven't had nightmares like that in a long time. It's not something that you anticipate is going to happen."
With the Colts poised to fall to 0-9 via another blowout loss and, given the Dolphins’ win in Kansas City, to become the last remaining winless team in the NFL, G.M. Chris Polian is taking some heat for his role in the disintegration of the franchise. As pointed out by Brad Wells of StampedeBlue.com via…
When it comes to the Colts' 0-8 season, opinions vary. Coach Jim Caldwell thinks his team is fighting hard and doing its best. Owner Jim Irsay thinks the team's play is unacceptable.
Colts tight ends Dallas Clark and Brody Eldridge are expected to miss more than a week with what coach Jim Caldwell called "significant" injuries.
