Colts owner Jim Irsay listed Indy for “at least” two Super Bowl wins

With the Colts in third place in the AFC South, it’s unlikely anyone in their fan base will have the Super Bowl in mind, but now team owner Jim Irsay claims the titles are on their way.

“Colts Nation, don’t worry… we’re going to get the horseshoe at least 2 Lombardis this decade,” he tweeted. “As sure as the sun rises and the seasons change, it IS COMING! Never doubt it, EVER! YOU WILL SEE THE GREATNESS BELIEVE AND YOU WILL SEE.”

Do you think he remembers Andrew Luck retired and Carson Wentz being QB1 in Indy? Obviously no.

Now it might just be his ego speaking the same way LeBron James did on a runway show before his tenure at Miami Heat, but it worked. So, is it possible that Irsay’s expectations for the future will come true? Of course, however, in a sport like soccer the distractions seem much more powerful.

Securing multiple titles in a sport that demands excellence from coaching staff to players makes a statement like this much less productive than when a basketball player says it. There aren’t 15 players on a roster where a trio can dominate and then give the ball to their best player when the game is on. Carson Wentz needs to be excellent, the Colts offensive line needs to remove catalyst goaltender Quentin Nelson from IR, and that defense cannot be ranked 19th in the league.

A lot needs to change before anyone can project a Colts championship, let alone the plural. I have to love fire, though – it’s more fun that way.
