Jim Irsay prays for ‘unhappy s—slingers’ after Colts win over Broncos

Jim IrsayAny talk of the Denver Broncos potentially running the table and going 16-0 this season ended on Sunday night when they lost to the Indianapolis Colts. Peyton Manning threw for 386 yards and three touchdowns against his former team, but it was not enough as Denver’s defense and special teams made some costly mistakes. As you might expect, the win made Jim Irsay very, very happy.

Irsay was so thrilled after his team’s 39-33 victory that he went on one of his infamous incoherent tweeting sprees. A lot was made of Irsay’s recent comments about Manning only winning one Super Bowl during his time in Indy. The Colts owner thanked the fans on Twitter, though most of his rant was clearly directed at the media and his critics.

It’s fair to wonder if Irsay was drinking while making a mess of the written English language, but he also addressed that.

Even Broncos coach John Fox accused Irsay of taking a cheap shot at Manning, so you can understand why he was reveling in the win. Had the Colts lost, Irsay would have had to hear about how he shouldn’t have disrespected Manning and given him added motivation.
