Past now prologue to Colts president Polian

Colts president Bill Polian met with the media Friday and had no interest in revisiting his biting comments about his team following its Super Bowl XLIV defeat.

At least three times, Polian answered questions about Sunday’s loss to the Saints by saying, “The past is prologue.” He also opened his remarks by praising his team’s resilience despite injuries and said first-year coach Jim Caldwell did a remarkable job amid “strife.”

Polian garnered attention Wednesday when he blamed the offensive line and special teams for the Colts missing out on an NFL championship.

“Our offensive line, by our standards, did not have a good game,” Polian told the team’s Web site. “They were outplayed by the Saints’ defensive line. Our special teams, in terms of handing the ball — both in the return game and on the onside kick — were outplayed by the Saints. Therein lies the result. It had nothing to do with strategy or preparedness or toughness or effort.”

By Friday, Polian had moved forward, saying, “What happened in the past doesn’t matter.”
