I know there are some Colts fans who feel otherwise and love Harrison, so I won't get into it here, but I'll just that for myself I am very, very pleased hearing this. Hopefully it's true, I think this is definitely the right course of action.
That's absolutely part of it. These two young guys are talented, quick, hungry, willing to mix it up physically and block. They bring a lot to the team. Plus having Harrison back not only stunts their promising development but in my opinion he hurts everyone's production/numbers. Everyone on the offense, everyone on the team, is worse off if Harrison is back with the Colts.
Bill Polian told me after the game that the Colts, even if Anthony Gonzalez's knee injury is more than a one-month deal, wouldn't consider bringing Marvin Harrison out of retirement.
Tony Dungy said something interesting on our NBC set: That Polian's comment says to him that Peyton Manning is comfortable with rookie Austin Collie in the slot and Pierre Garcon as the outside bookend for Reggie Wayne.
