Jim Irsay: Colts ‘could be 6-0,’ insists ‘year isn’t over’

The Indianapolis Colts are 2-4 and in last place in the NFL’s worst division, yet owner Jim Irsay still sees the glass half full. The owner is also completely out of touch with reality. Here’s what he had to say about his team’s pathetic start. “We could be 6-0 right now if the ball bounced our way,” Irsay told USA TODAY’S Jarrett Bell this week. In truth, the...

Jim Irsay believes the Colts could be 6-0

Owner Jim Irsay believes the Indianapolis Colts—who are currently in last place in the AFC South—could be undefeated in 2016 if not for a few unfortunate bounces. “We could be 6-0 if the ball bounces a little differently,” Irsay said, via the Indianapolis Star.

Colts GM says he is ‘100 percent’ on same page with Chuck Pagano

The Indianapolis Colts remain in flux. At 2-3 on the season, the powers to be may have staved off termination with an ugly win over the Chicago Bears last week. In no way does this mean that general manager Ryan Grigson and head coach Chuck Pagano are guaranteed to keep their jobs beyond this season. Both have been downright failures.

Ryan Grigson should blame himself, not Andrew Luck’s contract

Ryan Grigson replaced Bill Polian as the man in charge of the Indianapolis Colts’ personnel decisions in January of 2012, and despite taking over a 2-14 team, he was in an enviable position.

Jim Irsay: Andrew Luck must ‘change the way he plays’ to prevent injury

The Indianapolis Colts need Andrew Luck healthy if they want to be as good as they can be, and owner Jim Irsay knows it. For that reason, Irsay wants Luck to be a little bit different on the field. “He has to change the way he plays, only because it’s just natural that he is not a 22-year-old kid at Stanford who could play tight end or quarterback,” Irsay said Saturday at...

Two weeks ago, when NFL executive vice president of health and safety Jeff Miller admitted a link between football and CTE, it seemed like the football world was now united in moving toward deal with that connection. But this is the NFL, where player safety is a good distance down the priority list and change moves about as quickly as a Tom Brady scramble. And so several NFL...
