And I meant that, one of the highest compliments that I can ever pay Polian. He always kept his word. Always.
Jeff signed a six-year deal that kept him in place as Manning’s center, and the Colts won a Super Bowl in 2006. Manning and Saturday eventually set an NFL record with 172 games together as quarterback and center, breaking a streak that was previously held by one of my other clients, Kent Hull, and his quarterback Jim Kelly in Buffalo.
