Irsay goes to Twitter after blowout loss
By Mike Wells
INDIANAPOLIS -- It took a few hours -- maybe he was letting the embarrassing loss soak in -- but Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay took to Twitter on Sunday after his team had its worst home loss with Andrew Luck at quarterback, 38-8, to the St. Louis Rams.
The Colts trailed 28-0 at halftime and eventually 38-0 before they avoided the shutout. You can’t point the finger at one particular area on why the Colts were blown out.
Luck threw three interceptions and was sacked three times.
Indianapolis ran for 18 yards on 14 attempts.
Rams rookie Tavon Austin killed the Colts secondary for 138 yards on two catches.
Special teams gave up a 98-yard touchdown to Austin on a punt return.
Irsay has a history for getting on Twitter to voice his frustration over his team’s performance. He did it after their 24-point preseason loss to the Buffalo Bills in August. Irsay he said they had a “crap performance” and he gave his “commanders” an “earful” after the game.
