Polian Says He Was Fired for Not Having a Good Backup

Bill Polian believes his biggest mistake was not having an adequate backup for Peyton Manning, and that’s what led to his firing as vice chairman of the Colts.

Polian told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the lack of a capable backup for the injured quarterback was the primary reason the Colts went from Super Bowl contenders to a 2-14 record and the No. 1 draft pick.

Polian said the timing of the move was surprising and that he was more upset about his son losing his job.
