Colts Irsay and Peyton Manning Release Joint Statement Stating All is Well

It sounds like Peyton Manning and Colts owner Jim Irsay have kissed and made up.

For now.

The Colts franchise QB and owner have released a statement, insisting they are just fine after a week filled with complaints and comments suggesting a rift had developed.

“We would like to dispel any misperception that there might be any hard feelings between us,” the two said Friday in a statement issued by the team. “Since 1998, we have enjoyed a great relationship, based upon mutual respect and trust. We have always been able to talk and address matters we’ve faced over the years, not just as owner and player, but as friends.

“We had a long talk today and we want to assure Colts fans everywhere that we are both committed to maintaining our close relationship and to working together through any challenges the future may bring.”

That would be welcome news to Colts fans, who first watched Manning publicly complain about the down-in-the-mouth atmosphere at team headquarters and then two days later saw Irsay call out his franchise quarterback at a news conference intended to focus on the new head coach.
