Oh, Jim Irsay. Really, dude? Really!?
I warned you that you were digging your own grave earlier this week…or last week? I really can’t remember, but I’m sticking by it. Again, I love how competitive you are, but man, this is sour grapes and bad business. Certainly not illegal, but definitely unethical.
Horse back in front of the cart…
Peyton Manning has been medically cleared to resume football activity by his team of doctors, including the surgeon responsible for the latest surgery on his neck that was supposed to fix the problem creating the problem–a legit solution. As soon as this news hit the airwaves, including your nearest WiFi connection, Jim Irsay jumped on Twitter and laid a few more shovel strokes to hole he now has at an impressive three feet of depth.
You see it right there with your own eyes. Irsay does not want to pay Peyton–not the monster option that he is owed–not with any uncertainty surrounding the ALL-UNIVERSE quarterback’s future. Irsay has stated that the fans would believe him to be “stupid,” if three years down the line they had nothing in the pipe, and had spent big on a player who panned. It’s almost too easy to infer. And I disagree–wholly.
Colts fans will offer a pass to Irsay in regards to Peyton Manning. They’ve already sided with Manning. Watch any of the sports talk shows shooting in Indianapolis right now. That joint is showering Irsay with boos. And if Jimmy needs another reminder: Peyton Manning is the reason the Super Bowl is in Indy this weekend.
Regardless of what Irsay and “The Horseshoe” decide, I believe Peyton wants to be away from Irsay. And the rumor mill is in rapid generation mode–it seems Manning will be sitting down to dinner with Larry Fitzgerald this weekend.
