Is Colt's owner a genius? Ir-say he is...

So Jim Irsay raised the very doubts we've raised about Peyton Manning in pressure games all week --

Was he lucky, stupid, or incredibly shrewd?

We can rule out lucky because a. it's just too easy to make any more Luck puns, and b. it's not fair.

Not fair, because if Manning's Broncos had won tonight, everyone would have said, Irsay's a dufus. "No excuses." &tc.

Hence we can also rule out idiot, because, well, Andrew Luck is 1-0 now against Peyon, has as many playoff wins in the last few years as Peyton does....  and has 10-15 years to play,

Did Peyton play terribly?  Of course not.

Is he "to blame"?  No, not really.

He just played well enough to lose to young Mr. Luck.

Give Irsay a little credit for raising the stakes this week -- and winning.

p.s. -- yah, I'm posting this with Denver still in the game.  No guts, no glory.  Just ask ole man Irsay.
