Fox: Jim Irsay is less classy than Peyton, and an ingrate

Fox Defends Manning

“I saw the comments, and to be honest with you I thought it was a bit of a cheap shot,” Fox told the hosts. “To me, in my opinion, they were disappointing and inappropriate. Peyton would never say anything, he’s too classy to do that, but they sounded a little ungrateful and unappreciative to me, for a guy that’s set a standard, won a Super Bowl, won division titles, won four MVP awards. I’d be thankful of that one Super Bowl ring, because a lot of people don’t have one.”

Fox, of course, is referring to comments from Colts owner Jim Irsay, who - during a hiatus from lauding his former QB - suggested that cutting Peyton Manning in favor of drafting Andrew Luck was about pursuing championships instead of individual statistics. Anyone think Peyton took note?
