    The interview was done in July, not the week before. The media is way out of line on this and amazing it cannot be called out. But that doesnt make for good tv

    Then again we could have Mike Brown so I'd say it could be worse.

    Do you have a link for that? The only article I found referencing Irsay's comments in July stated that his USA Today interview "echoed" what he said in July, implying that he said them twice.

    Re: Peyton

    I don't have a problem with what Irsay said. It wasn't really a dig at Manning as much as it was a dig at Polian. If Polian hadn't blown, like, 5 straight drafts in a row then the team wouldn't have been in the toilet when Manning was hurt. You can't be a one man team in football, and the last couple of years Manning was in Indy the team was horrible. They won almost exclusively on his back. That doesn't work.

    Might make the NFL top 2 list right behind Jerry Jones.

    We saw the true talent level of that team when Peyton was hurt. Bill's mistake was letting Jr take control of the draft, Bill assembled a good team around Peyton early but the talent level eroded when Chris started drafting.

    This is my point. Not an attack on his work in the operation to have a winning franchise for many years or his work ethic. I might be called old-fashioned by some, but I like/appreciate an owner who does not draw attention to himself/herself. Even Mike Brown stays out of the limelight. I'd guess other owners roll their eyes when Irsay or Jerry Jones do "their thing". Owners like this seem to have "big mouth disease". We have all known someone who always dominates a conversation and likes to voice their opinions... sometimes controversial. Another (old-fashioned?) unwritten rule kind of a thing for owners... speak only with your money and your choice of employees.

    Vindicated for what? Colts fans don't think he should kept Peyton and not drafted Luck. No vindication was necessary for that decision.

    Last night's win did not vindicate him for being a jackass.

    C'mon, folks!

    Irsay's comments were nothing more than a well-deserved (IMO) shot at Bill Polian and, in so many words, state that, if anything, the franchise failed Manning , not the other way around. Having said that, Irsay could -- and should have -- more plain-fully stated that Manning, Harrison, Saturday and company did everything they could and are the last to deserve blame for "only" one Super Bowl win -- as if it is some relatively easy task in a one game winner-take- all scenario.

    Re: Peyton

    I am making a prediction and I hope it is not true but I don't think Irsay has been sticking to his 12 step program. Between his recent actions and pictures of him that just make him look tanked, I think Irsay may need help.

    Re: Peyton

    Being a Colts fan, I'm never surprised with Manning. But his win today was what makes him one of the greats. He makes some bad decisions and the Broncos go down 31-7 and they come back and win by double digits. Peyton has never been one to get rattled or worry about being down.

    I love Manning but this only holds true for the regular season.
