With Peyton Manning playing in Indianapolis for the first time since becoming a member of the Denver Broncos, how could any other game the NFL be game of the week?
The one thing that Jim Irsay, owner of the Indianapolis Colts, should have thought about before he stupidly opened his mouth this week on the subject of Manning and his time with the Colts was how his comments were going to be interpreted by the Broncos and more specifically, by Manning.
I’m not implying that Irsay’s comments will provide the Broncos with that needed spark to beat the Colts as they don’t need such a spark. What I am implying is that these comments, coming on the week of Manning’s return to Indianapolis after having so much success there, could be interpreted (like I have interpreted them) as words from someone ungrateful for what he was given by Manning. What this can do for the Broncos and/or Manning is give them a little extra motivation heading into the game, and that could end up being huge.
