With his team mere days away from drafting a new face of the franchise at quarterback, Jim Irsay is asking Indianapolis Colts fans to be patient.
The schedule is out and new era is here..in 1998 we went 3-13 and it took us until Jan. 2004,almost 6 years,to win 1st playoff game;Patience- Jim Irsay (@JimIrsay) April 18, 2012
On one hand, Irsay's message to fans is wholly rational. Building a winning program from scratch takes time. But with season tickets available for the first time since 2003, asking your fans for six years worth of rope is pushing it.
Peyton Manning took six years to win a playoff game, but he had transformed
the Colts into a contender in just one year.
When If the Colts
select Andrew Luck, expect him to be held to a similar timetable.
Perhaps the biggest shock here is Irsay not working Axl Rose into his tweet. Must have been too on the nose.
