Jim Irsay on Indianapolis Colts’ offensive line: ‘I DEMAND better’

jim-irsayIndianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is apparently going to hold his team to a higher standard than usual this year. Or, at the very least, he seems intent on publicly criticizing it more when things go wrong, as evidenced by his apology for a “crap” preseason performance a few weeks ago.

The Colts only managed to squeak out a 21-17 win over an inferior Oakland Raiders team on Sunday thanks in large part to poor offensive line play. Andrew Luck was sacked a whopping four times after being hit quite a bit (41 sacks) in 2012. Back in January, Colts GM Ryan Grigson said the team was making it a priority during the offseason to bolster the offensive line. Irsay was still disgusted with the product.

Irsay is right. Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake is one of the best pass rushers in the game. He sacked Brandon Weeden 2.5 times in a win over the Cleveland Browns last week, and Miami will be looking to bring pressure again in Indy on Sunday. If the Colts can’t stop it, who knows what will happen. Considering he wears outfits like this to get geeked for the playoffs, we know Irsay isn’t messing around.
