Jim Irsay is supposed to be doing something amazing for the return of Peyton Manning in Indianapolis. Well today, Irsay didn’t feel like it was neccessary to say something good about Peyton but rather drag his legacy through the dirt. irsay called out peyton for not winning Super Bowl’s and gives Peyton credit for them drafting Andrew Luck.
“I think it’s perfect,” Irsay says. “What’s happened is what Peyton and I hoped would happen. The desire was for him to get well and get to a team that has a chance to win another Super Bowl before his career ended. And our desire was to be able to transition to Andrew (Luck). To be so good so soon is stunning.”
Irsay said Manning encouraged him to go with Luck.
“He said, ‘You’ve got to take Andrew,'” Irsay said. “‘You have to. You’re crazy if you don’t.'”
“We’ve changed our model a little bit, because we wanted more than one of these,” Irsay said showing his Super Bowl XLI championship ring.
“(Tom) Brady never had consistent numbers, but he has three of these,” Irsay continued. “Pittsburgh had two, the Giants had two, Baltimore had two and we had one. That leaves you frustrated.
“You make the playoffs 11 times, and you’re out in the first round seven out of 11 times. You love to have the “Star Wars” numbers from Peyton and Marvin (Harrison) and Reggie (Wayne). Mostly, you love this,” Irsay said, again flashing his SB ring
I am sorry, i truly feel that Irsay should have kept his mouth shut. Peyton is liable to break record this game. If there is a game Peyton will want to break a record, trust me it is on the Colts.
