Dungy, Polian and the Colts were the reason why the NFL started this attack on everything defense. they had rules changed in their favor to help Manning succeed.

Dungy: Harrison should be suspended and incarcerated
The Dislocated Press
Thursday, December 2, 2010

Former Indianapolis Colts Coach and Communicator with the Divine Tony Dungy weighed in on the controversy surrounding beleaguered Steelers linebacker James Harrison during a conference call from Heaven on Thursday.

"It’s natural for coaches to defend their players,” said Dungy. "But coaches like Mike Tomlin would be quicker to try to change technique if it meant players missing games. In James Harrison's case, I think it would best serve the league if he was suspended for at least three seasons and placed in a federal penitentiary, receiving moral guidance by none other than yours truly. That way I can lead James down the right path. Just look at what I did with Michael Vick, after I taught him not to kill dogs."

Such a punishment might be viewed as extreme, but many across the NFL are hesitant to speak out against Dungy, whose weekly sermons on NBC Sunday Night Football have led to millions of TV viewers converting to Goodellism.

"I used the think that a lot of the NFL's rules were bogus," said Tom Schwartz, a resident of Boston and an avid New England Patriots fan. "But after I heard Tony explain how allowing hits on media darling quarterbacks could result in less impressive stats, fewer wins and - God forbid - injuries, I totally understood. The league understands that quarterbacks like my boy Tom Brady and Peyton Manning need to be in the playoffs every year. We all saw what happened when Brady was out for the season in 2008 and the Pats missed the playoffs. That was a very dark time."

The Steelers and other players across the league, such as the Baltimore Ravens' Terrell Suggs, insist that the NFL is targeting Harrison. Dungy, however, dismissed those claims. "The league isn't targeting anyone," he said. "They're just trying to keep the game competitive by allowing quarterbacks to make all of their throws. Mr. Goodell told me this week that the league is seriously considering allowing quarterbacks to stand behind an 8-foot fence when it's time to throw. The only issue now is trying to figure out how to hike the ball over the fence."

But don't assume that Dungy is completely against quarterbacks taking hits. "Hits on Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will still be legal," he noted. "That's a given, because it happens so often that changing that would be changing the overall nature of the game. Plus, he made that tackle that kept the Colts out of Super Bowl XL. So f*** him."
