The Football Chick

My little tumblr universe is 90% about sports (mostly football), 9% about cars and fashion, and 1% random stuff. I like a lot of teams and players, but I'm partial to the Redskins who I let break my heart every year. Oh yeah, I can be completely silly too. My other blogs are:, and

Whoa, says Jim Irsay, Colts #1 draft pick still to be determined

Colts owner Jim Irsay has made it clear that, contrary to popular opinion, Stanford QB Andrew Luck is not a shoe-in as their no. 1 draft pick.  The Colts, who finished the 2011 season 2-14 have the 1st pick in the draft.

Irsay began the offseason with sweeping and dramatic changes including the firing of vice chairman Bill Polian and head coach Jim Caldwell and the release of veteran QB Peyton Manning. Speculation soon grew that Andrew Luck would be their #1 draft pick to replace Manning. But yesterday Irsay basically said not so fast:

"It’s up in the air. We have to look at this thing completely open-minded. You have two outstanding athletes, two great pure passers, two guys from families that are incredible."

~~Jim Irsay quoted by USA Today at the annual NFL Owners Meeting in Palm Beach Florida on March 28, 2012
