After the Colts lost their preseason opener against the Bills, owner Jim Irsay ripped them on Twitter. So with a 38-8 home loss against the lowly Rams, Irsay was poised to go bonkers, right?
With nothing from Irsay as the Rams scored touchdown after touchdown, I thought it was coming. It had to be coming.
After the game ended, it started with some promise: “I hear the pain in Colts Nation n share n feel the pissed off feelings! Crap performance.”
Oh yeah. Here it comes. Unless it doesn’t.
“Not crap effort..we’re n 1st place by 2 games,” Irsay said. “A lot of teams would dance n be filled with joy to be n our position! Shake it off, Man up n get ready 4 Thursday night! Horrible game,1 game.”
He’s right to be looking at the bigger picture. But part of Irsay’s charm is that he rarely looks at the bigger picture.
“16 game season n when this season started, to be n 1st place with a 2 game lead n be 6-3 with our schedule n injuries, I’d take it in a second,” Irsay said.
Again, he’s right. But there’s hope for a looming explosion.
“I promise I’m more angry and pissed off than you can imagine..I will express all fan’s rage to franchise,then move on and support our team!”
We’ll see how long he supports them if they keep playing like they did on Sunday.
