John Fox Fires Back at Jim Irsay, Adds Fuel to Broncos vs. Colts





The Denver Broncos are getting set to battle the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday in a matchup of AFC Powers. The Colts were flying high until running into the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football, so the matchup has lost a little luster. But everybody knows this game is all about Peyton Manning‘s return to Indianapolis and his showdown with Andrew Luck.

This is the stuff that great football games are made of. Manning’s return to Indy will be an emotional one for many involved. But when push comes to shove and the teams take the field, it will be business at usual.

So as this big game approaches, it’s a given that there will be a little back-and-forth between the two sides. Colts’ owner Jim Irsay commented that he was disappointed that the team only won one Super Bowl with Manning, which Broncos’ head coach John Fox apparently took exception to.

“I saw the comments. And to be honest with you, I thought it was a bit of a cheap shot. To me, in my opinion, they were disappointing and inappropriate. Peyton would never say anything. He’s too classy to do that. They sounded a little ungrateful and unappreciative to me. For a guy who has set a standard, won a Super Bowl, won division titles, won four MVP awards. I’d be thankful for that one Super Bowl ring, because a lot of people don’t have one,” said Fox.

There’s nothing wrong or out of bounds about the comments from Fox. He’s merely giving his opinion on the matter and I don’t think he’s off base whatsoever. Super Bowl rings are very hard to come by, there’s no doubt about it.

But what these comments have ultimately done, is add a little fuel to the fire for this Sunday’s matchup. Broncos versus Colts is not exactly a classic battle. It’s a game about two quarterbacks, a legend returning home and when it comes down to it, two good AFC teams duking it out in week seven of the NFL season.

Super Bowl 50 Highlights: Broncos vs Panthers

If this is Peyton Manning’s final game he’ll ride off into the sunset on top. The Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50 24-10 on Sunday behind their incredible defense especially the pass rush from linebackers Von Miller (who made two big plays) and DeMarcus Ware. Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers’ offense looked stunned unable to create much of anything under constant pressure. Lets take a look at the best highlights from the big game. Cam Newton got an early taste of what Tom Brady felt in the AFC Championship Game two weeks ago.
