"This ain't fantasy football." That is what the owner of the Indianapolis Colts, the worst team in the NFL this season, tells Hannah Storm tomorrow on ESPN.
[I am not psychic; the show was taped.]
Jim Irsay is the owner of the team and he says that "...it's looking more likely the Colts won't pay injured Peyton Manning the $28 million bonus he's due March 8 -- and may show him the door."
Of course as a graduate of Tennessee there is a pretty good chance that Mr. Manning could find the door on his own and could also find a good gig as a QB in the league next year.
In a case of deja vu happening all over again, Mr. Irsay also says that the team is in a toss up between picking Andrew Luck with the first draft choice or Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III. Both are quarterbacks. That was the same sitch back in the day when the Colts had to choose between Mr. Manning and Ryan Leaf.
Mr. Leaf is now a golf coach. Let's hope lightning strikes twice for the Colts.
