The "Sunday Night Football" game this weekend is one of the NFL season's most highly anticipated matchups as Peyton Manning returns to Indianapolis to face his old team. The drama surrounding the game is furthered by recent comments from Colts owner Jim Irsay about his former quarterback.
“You make the playoffs 11 times, and you’re out in the first round seven out of 11 times," Jim Irsay told USA Today. "You love to have the Star Wars numbers from Peyton and Marvin (Harrison) and Reggie (Wayne). Mostly, you love this," the Colts owner said while showing his Super Bowl XLI ring.
Irsay has been doing plenty of talking on his Twitter account this week. Irsay even used lyrics from Pearl Jam's 1996 song "Off He Goes" in a recent Tweet that seems to be about Manning's return to Indianapolis. Check it out below. Warning: The lyrics Mr. Irsay uses contain some foul language.
