Bill Polian: Essential for NFL head coaches to be able to deal with media

My latest column for the National Sports Journalism Center at Indiana is on a new book by Bill Polian that includes a passage on coaches and the media. Here is an excerpt: ****** Bill Polian didn’t become one of the game’s greatest NFL general managers by ignoring the small details. In an autobiography co-written by Vic Carucci and published by Triumph Books, Polian writes about...

Coach Jerry Jones Says Cowboys Didn’t Have a Curfew

Obviously, someone is lie. Ian Rapport says 20 players missed curfew, others reporting just 1 or 2 and now Jerry Jones says there wasn’t a curfew at all. Jerry Jones told Bill Polian and I that there was no curfew violation by any Cowboy players because there was no curfew. — Ian Fitzsimmons (@Ianfitzespn) November 9, 2014 Never a boring day with the Cowboys.

@mmigliore: Are Bills Fans Freaking Out Too Much Over Coaching?

Sunday’s win at the Jets was so, so satisfying. If you read the game predictions piece posted on this site, you know how a majority of us thought the 4-3 Bills would actually lose to the 1-6 Jets. I wrote those words myself. The Bills have a history of bad losses in the 2000s at the Meadowlands and many of us expected the same.  Man, we are some deeply disturbed people. Sometimes...

Colts Pass a Milestone and Turn Into Unicorns

Well, well…here we are. As Phillip B. Wilson kindly reminded me, the Colts passed a major milestone last week. It’s not a club record or anything like that. I guess it’s more of a made up milestone. But that doesn’t make it any less significant. Or any less true. Former Colts general manager and current ESPN analyst Bill Polian used to say (and still does) that, “You don’t...

Report: Jameis Hurting His Draft Stock With His Off-Field Drama

When it comes to the NFL Draft you truly don’t know who to believe. What scouts and GMs are saying in September doesn’t necessarily mean it will be the same in April. Jameis Winston is an extremely physically talented quarterback, that part has never been in question, but being a QB isn’t just physical it is also mental.
