Peyton Manning has expanded his comments on Bill Polian. Suspicions that the tension between the two lead to Polian's dismissal seem quite weak in light of Manning's reaction to the situation:
"I used to think nobody hated losing more than I did or was more miserable after a loss. I decided it was a tie between me and Bill," Manning told Mortensen. "And I stay in the building pretty late and he was always here working, too. Personally, my goodness, so many thoughts. He was one of the last guys to leave my wedding with Ashley (his wife). This is very, very tough."
