Whether you think Colts owner Jim Irsay was taking a swipe at Broncos QB Peyton Manning's postseason record with the Colts or just being honest about his frustration at winning only one Super Bowl with Manning, this much is true: It sure got people's attention. Irsay is in a back-and-forth with Broncos coach John Fox over whether it was an "unneccesary shot" at Manning, or whether Fox "misperceived" the comments. Former Colts coach Tony Dungy said Irsay was "getting personal" in an effort to throw off Manning's game. Manning, for his part, chose silence. What's more, all this followed Irsay pumping up the Welcome Back Peyton tribute the Colts are throwing their former QB on Sunday.
Jim Irsay's Colts won a lot of games with Peyton Manning at quarterback, but just one Super Bowl.
What does the Fox say?
John Fox believes Irsay's comments about Manning's postseason record weren't needed.
