Irsay was right …

… or, at least, didn’t mess things up too much. 

Manning’s absence exposed the Colts’ weaknesses in several areas, which probably contributed to the Polians getting axed. His absence also dumped a completely unexpected opportunity into Owner Jim Irsay’s lap. All of a sudden he could choose to

  • hope that Manning would completely recover and patch things together for the 2-3 remaining years of his career
  • blow it up and completely rebuild for the next ten or fifteen years with Andrew Luck.

The football pundits tell us that Luck is the most promising college QB since John Elway. Manning was drafted after Elway. Connect the dots. If Luck fulfills his promise, Colts fans will be very happy with Irsay’s choice. If not, then the expected post-Manning mediocrity will just return a couple of years early.
