He explained, “I’m glad he has no NFL experience. I’m glad you didn’t learn about fear in this league. Because it is difficult for all our coaches. They are afraid. They go to analysis. And it’s getting harder. It doesn’t have all of these. He has no fear.”
Fans also pointed out an error in the mathematical calculations Irsay made after claiming the Colts were among the top quartile winners. “Look, we’re the fourth highest-paid team in the league since 2000. This means that the top quartile of winners is within the top quartile of that top quarter.” said Irsay.
