    Irsay Sheds Light on the Manning/Brady Controversy

         Who is the better QB of his era, Peyton Manning or Tom Brady? Peyton has the regular season statistical advantage over the years...but Tom's been better in the play-offs, and has three (3) SB rings, to Peyton's one (1). During an interview in which Indianapolis Colts' owner Jim Irsay discussed the departure of Peyton Manning, Irsay stated the following:  

    "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.

    Just sayin': http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2013/10/15/indianapolis-colts-jim-irsay-no-regrets-peyton-manning/2984615/

         Apparently, Irsay's comments have struck a nerve:  http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/10/15/john-fox-tees-off-on-jim-irsay/

    Not sure what Irsay's point was in all of this.  Took a shot at both Brady and Manning and he did this why?

    Irsay probably wanted to justify the decision to drop the Horseface who is having the best statistical year with his team at 6-0. He is not wrong in wanting more SB wins, nor is he wrong in his statement of facts. Manning had great numbers but got bounced in the first round 7 out of 11 times. If I was the owner, I'd want to change the model too though I might be more diplomatic.

    Red Sox in 2013 World Series, Patriots in 2014 Super Bowl!

    Maybe Irsay should look inwards and wonder if he could have done anything different, or his front office bringing in other players that could have made the difference, rather than blaming his QB.

    Irsay is a chode. There's no debating that.

    You know what Manning did for you though, Irsay? Brought the Colts from being the worst team in the league in 1997, to being a perennial contender, winning 12 games or more in I-don't-know-how-many consecutive seasons. He made them a relevant franchise again, which Jim Harbaugh couldn not have.

    Like him or hate him; Irasy speaks the truth....

     

    "seven out of 11"

     

    That's the bottom line. The rest is BS.

    Irsay is a such a (___). 

    Sorry. He is saying something everyone knows ... but WHY say that?

    Manning never did anything bad to Indy outside of failing to win championships, which isn't entirely his doing. 

    Way to throw your ex-stars, and HOFers under the bus.

    Hiya Bustchise...how's the Jet family of Trolls on BDC...say hello to Uncle Rico for me...has he gotten the ankle bracelet off yet, and can he leave the house ? Does he still have to stay away from kids? Have the police told the neighbors he's living in your house yet? Must be tough, huh?

    I would have to go with Brady because he's the greatest of all time. 17 postseason wins is better than any QB in NFL history.

    I agree...certainly better than that pile of pig pus playing QB for the hediously bad NY Jets...right DQBB....

    Colts fan agrees.  I love Indy's owner for keeping the franchise here.  I love his full support of the team.  Some owners don't fully support their teams.  But the guy is not eloquent.  While his thinking may be correct, the words he uses to describe it sometimes miss the mark and they did in this instance. 

    He could have easily just said - I want more rings.  When Manning was here, I did not do a good job of helping that happen.

    Certainly hasn't diminished the value of the team in a small market.  I am a local that has found him to be quite useful.  Further he didn't choose his father nor did you yours, I suspect, so I don't know why you made that comment - maybe just to poke, I suppose.

    Nope, I did not...nor did you or he....HOWEVER...his luck of the draw was to be the offspring of a rich and much hated man....he grew up partying and drinking to brutal excess which is clear everytime he's in public....mine was merely an accurate observation...no reason to be defensive
