Irsay is embarrasing


Recommended Posts

This guy is a joke to Indiana.  Peyton made football relevant in Indiana. Irsay is a rich boy's son who never worked a hard day in his life. I'm thinking he started to hit the bottle pretty hard again, actually that would be a good excuse for his comments.  Funny, he mentioned all those other teams with multiple SuperBowl wins.  They all had a DEFENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Irsay and Polian failed to put a full team together each season, Peyton put those crappy Colts teams on his back year after year.

Your comment doesn't even make sense.  Your saying it is a negative to have the best QB of all time on your team. That is exactly what you are Mr. Irsay are saying.  If you say its because of money, then you'll end up hating Luck as well because if he becomes the player he should then he'll get a big contract too.  Then you'll want to dump him for a "total team". 

 

TFunky, you are the first person in history to think that having Manning on a team is a bad thing.

I'll be glad when this game/week is over

:groan:

 

You should be glad when Irsay deletes his Twitter account and blames himself for the lack of SuperBowl Wins and not just one player.

 

So much for "the buck stops here" with Mr. Irsay.  He'll just throw anyone under the bus, including the one man who made his life relevant.

 

Without Peyton, Irsay's beloved Twitter Account would have 1/3 the followers.

Your missing the point. But maybe we can discuss it once you stop whining like a little school girl. Peyton will always be my favorite player, but.... GET OVER IT!!!! Either ride with the team or be gone.

LOL, nice insult.  I'm thinking you didn't get the point. Please re-read or expain how only 1 superbowl is Peyton's fault.

I'm thinking you had your mind made up before you read what was said, and saw what you wanted to confirm your opinion.

I didn't go in with an opinion, or come away sharing yours.

You're the one who's deduced that it's Peyton's fault.

I didn't read that in Irsay's comments.

I think you either skipped, or added dots that weren't there, to come to your conclusion.

You think losing in the playoffs was all Peyton's fault then?

Well, every year was different, but I know the TEAM lost many playoff games, and Peyton was on those TEAMS.

Peyton wasn't the whole problem, but, at times, he shared blame.

    • Because I’ve been a Colts fan for a long time and Jim Irsay has never had an issue spending money.  Ballard has also said over and over again he was saving his money to pay his own.  This isn’t breaking news.  So rather buy into some idea that he was fine with spending money under Tobin, Polian, and Grigson but is no longer fine with spending money under Ballard just doesn’t add up when you look at his history and what Ballard said.  It’s much more logical to assume that’s he’s spending what Ballard wants like he has with his previous GMs especially when the GM tells you he doesn’t believe in splash free agents and is saving his money to sign his own.   Irsay doesn’t negotiate the contracts.  Ballard does so contract structuring is done by Ballard and Ballard has done it in away to give him cap flexibility that is going to allow him to keep guys like Nelson, Leonard, Smith and others over the next couple of years.    Also Jim Irsay is worth 3 billion dollars he’s not hurting for money.   You want to see an organization that doesn’t want to spend money look across town where Simon won’t even let the Pacers look at the luxury tax.  That’s an owner who doesn’t want to spend.
    • I’m not sure why you find it hard to accept that the Colts may have cash flow problems?  Not that they can’t manage them, but still….   Irsay is one of the few owners who doesn’t have any other source of big income.   No high tech company.  No real estate development.   No oil and gas.   His wealth is owning the Colts.   That’s it.    Sure he may he may spend money, but these last five years he now uses a pay-go system that lends itself to managing money.  We used to give bigger SB’s under Grigson.   Now,  we give either small or no signing bonuses.   Very few teams do that.  And we’re a very small market franchise.   You weren’t the least bit surprised to see DeForest Buckner accept a ZERO signing bonus?   I sure was.     Point of clarification:  none of what I’ve written is proof of anything.   But I think it’s at least worth considering, and you seem completely unwilling to even do that.  I confess find that surprising. 
    • Just because they had money left over doesn’t mean Irsay had a problem spending it had Ballard wanted too.  It doesn’t take that hard of a look back at Irsay’s history of owner to see he has zero problem spending what his GM wants to spend.  
    • That's not exactly true if you consider cap space left over. IIRC, we had the most unspent or near most unspent over a 3-4 year period just recently (IIRC, 16, 17, 18, 19). Pretty sure we had 40+M unspent two years in a row.   IIRC, we carried over the most in the league again this year at around 30M.   It was also speculated that we 1) didn't ask Luck for money back, AND 2) gave JB such a big raise, was because we would have been too far under the 89% rule had we not done both 1 and 2.     
    • Regardless Irsay has never been shy about spending to make the Colts better.  So either way the first point that started all this is irrelevant.
