Indianapolis Colts fire Bill and Chris Polian

I'm completely shocked that this happened. I thought a lot of the losses this season came down to the fact that Kerry Collins and Curtis Painter are not even close to the quarterback that Peyton Manning is.
The Colts fired vice chairman Bill Polian and general manager Chris Polian, according to a league source. A move has yet to come down on coach Jim Caldwell, who is still likely to be fired after the Colts finished 2-14 in his third season.

If the coaching job in Indianapolis opens up, it will be a coveted position. Given the return of quarterback Peyton Manning and the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the team will very quickly take on a different shape.
With the Rams, that was a non-shocker that Spags was fired after three seasons. But with the Colts? I'm stunned.

A presser has been scheduled for 5 PM today.
