John Fox shoots back at Colts owner Jim Irsay for ‘disappointing and inappropriate’ comments on Peyton Manning

If Irsay thinks the Colts would have won one Super Bowl or been to the playoffs close to 11 times (or had that great new stadium) without Manning, he has lost his mind. There's one main reason his team is a contender again, and that's because it had the good fortune to get the first pick and land once-in-a-generation quarterback prospect Andrew Luck. The thought that Manning kept the Colts from winning more than one title is flat out wrong. Irsay probably was focused on the thought that the Colts were better off moving on from Manning because he took up a lot of their salary-cap and they wanted a more balanced roster, because he couldn't possibly have meant what his quotes appear to be saying. Irsay knows better. And it's not like the Colts have reinvented football the last couple years without Manning; they just happened to fall into another great quarterback.

But if nothing else, it adds a little more tension to Manning's return to Indianapolis.

Call me crazy, but I still think the Colts tanked that season on purpose to get Luck.

What happened to the good ol' days (pre Jerry Jones) when NFL owners didn't do interviews and just sat in their offices counting their millions?

Irsay said, "Wah wah wah wah!"

Then the other team had a rebuttal of the same jibberish.

Much to do about nothing.
Just wasted , words.

On the Colt's' owner Irsay's
part, no class and he just needed to shut up.

Not sure why Irsay thinks Jerry Jones is the owner to emulate but good luck with that.

What an ass.

Rule out her local team in Green Bay, they're owned by the masses and sell stock ... unless she's systematically marrying 'em one-by-one and then off-ing them for their stock, thus becoming a majority stockholder ... it could happen, and it is the bye-week, gotta' talk about something, .
