Denver Broncos’ Peyton Manning Will Make Indianapolis Colts’ Owner Jim Irsay Shove It
We have all heard the news this week where Indianapolis Colts‘ owner Jim Irsay ran his mouth about how he was annoyed that the Colts were only able to obtain one Super Bowl trophy with Peyton Manning in his time with the Colts from 1998-2011. Talk about what a spoiled brat Irsay is.
When the Denver Broncos beat up on the Colts on Sunday, Irsay will learn how dumb he is to put all of the pressure on his team to win, and with that, he will make Andrew Luck look like a second-rate passer compared to Manning, which will stir the conversation once again if the Colts made a mistake letting go of Manning. The Colts already had an uphill battle in this game, and their owner makes it worse.
I mean, look at the picture above from 2012 when Manning announced his departure from the Colts. Doesn’t Manning have that, “I’m going to beat you with every inch of your life, you sad, sad stupid man” look on his face?
Irsay should be thanking his lucky stars that the Colts weren’t moved to L.A. because Manning is the sole reason why that didn’t happen, and is the sole reason why Lucas Oil Stadium is where it is today.
“(Tom) Brady never had consistent numbers, but he has three of these,” Irsay noted via USA TODAY. “Pittsburgh had two, the Giants had two, Baltimore had two and we had one. That leaves you frustrated.”
Yeah, I know Manning is so happy inside that he only won one Super Bowl in that time. The funny thing is, all those teams Irsay named had stable defenses at some point in time. Manning never really had that other than the Super Bowl run in 2006 during the playoffs.
What was Irsay doing as an owner of that football team? He had the opportunity to help surround Manning with better defenses in his career, but didn’t. The Colts were basically a one man team throughout Manning’s time there.
The funny thing is, Manning is the only reason why Irsay can run his mouth the way his doing right now. What exactly would Irsay be saying if Manning never played for the Colts? Irsay might have sold the Colts, and could have gone to L.A. in the process.
