Jim Irsay is Certifiably Nuts!

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has already jettisoned
former chairman Bill Polian. Is 'franchise' quarterback Peyton
Manning next to go? 

Maybe it’s me, but I’m still trying to figure out what the hell is wrong with ‘certifiably nuts’ Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay.

First Irsay surprises everyone around the league – and on his own team by firing longtime vice chairman Bill Polian and his son, GM Chris Polian. While I certainly agree with his firing of head coach Jim Caldwell, I don’t think getting rid of his entire staff was the brightest idea, particularly if there was one or two assistant that deserved to be kept on board.

Next, Irsay surprises again by hiring Balimore Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano to be the team’s new head coach, though I did like Irsay’s hiring of Ryan Grigson as the team’s new GM.

Now, Irsay is bad-mouthing ‘franchise’ quarterback Peyton Manning in the media – when everyone knows he’s going to part ways with the man that out his franchise back on the map before giving him the $28 million dollar bonus he is due in March.

I’m just going to say that what goes around comes around – and if Irsay doesn’t know that karma’s a b**ch, then I suspect he’s going to find out at some point in the very near future, even if the Colts do draft gifted quarterback Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft.
