“It is certainly something where I apologize for and we have allowed and I have allowed doubt, fear and a lack of faith slip into our DNA,” Irsay said. “It will not stand. Every walking step in this offseason is committed to getting the horseshoe back to where it should be.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts owner Jim Irsay released a statement Wednesday in which he apologized to the fans after the team ended its season "in perhaps the worst way possible and missed our chance to compete for history." Irsay issued the statement just days after the Colts missed the playoffs for the fifth time in the past seven seasons.

“We understand what happen, I understand what happen and it is unacceptable. I promise you one thing, anyone walking into the 56th Street complex this year, will be walking in with all chips in, period.”

The Colts’ future between Irsay, general manager Chris Ballard and head coach Frank Reich appear to be stable for now. However, the future of Colts quarterback Carson Wentz is not set in stone.

Ballard addressed Wentz’s future with the team in a lengthy press conference on Thursday.

“After Philip [Rivers] retired, and we made the decision to make the move on Carson, at the time of the decision we felt good about it," Ballard said. "And I still don’t regret the decision at the time. I’m not gonna—just sitting here today, just so y’all know, I won’t make a comment on who’s gonna be here and who’s not gonna be here next year. That’s not fair to any player.”

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay shares a positive message for the NFL community. NFL Network' s James Palmer reports on Indianapolis Colts defensive end Justin Houston' s homecoming game against his former team and what it took for the Colts to defeat the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 5.

I'm a Colts fan from Denmark and have been a fan for nearly 15 years. My first ever game was was Superbowl 41 (The one where Colts won) I've had never watched NFL before but my big brother was staying up to watch the game. My mom allowed me to skip school if I stayed up and watched it too. we are betting 100$ on whoever makes it furthest in the playoff void if we both lose the first game.

“If you don’t want to put all your chips on the table for winning and excellence, then don't walk in the building,” Irsay said.

It’s clear that Irsay is going all in for the 2022 season.
