Default Colts Owner Frustrated With Peyton Manning Era

After these comments from Colts owner Robbert Irsay I think the Peyton and the Broncos might be ready to unleash hell on the Colts Sunday night

"We've changed our model a little bit, because we wanted more than one of these," Irsay says, flicking up his right hand to show his Super Bowl XLI championship ring.

"(Tom) Brady never had consistent numbers, but he has three of these," Irsay adds. "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."

Then Irsay flicks up his right hand again
.

Broncos coach John Fox returns fire

"I saw the comments. And to be honest with you, I thought it was a bit of a cheap shot," Fox said during in an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "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 four MVP awards ... be thankful of that one Super Bowl ring, because a lot of people don't have one."

So a guy who inherited the team from his father and probably would have been looking to move if Peyton Manning had not arrived in 1998 is frustrated? You expect these comments from fans on message boards but not from owners.

Go Broncos

pretty trashy words. Like Fox says, be grateful for the one ring. Many players and coaches go their whole careers without even one. Take nothing for granted.

Irsay would be lucky if Luck can help the team making playoffs 11 times in 13 seasons, let alone winning a SB.

I would expect that he would show some respect to someone who saved his franchise. But it turns out that he is just classless.

Tony Dungy chimes in

Dungy also came to Manning's defense, arguing that the quarterback's popularity and success helped prevent the Colts from leaving Indianapolis.

"Without Peyton, there would be no Lucas Oil Stadium," Dungy told ESPN. "This team would be playing in LA right now. I don't understand Jim saying this."

Of course the shot about Irsay being "frustrated" with only one Lombardi probably applies to Dungy's coaching as well

because its fair or relevant to bring up the body of work of a second year player compared to a hall of famer.

Well it doesn't matter to Irsay how many fourth quarter combacks Luck had. Only SB matters right?
