Rick Teverbaugh: Irsay was completely correct


I know where I stand on this entire Manning returning to Indy subject. I have always been a Colts fan first and a Manning fan after that. It is still true today. It pleases me when Manning plays well for the Broncos. For nearly every game he plays this season, I wish him well.

On Sunday, I hope he doesn’t complete a pass and gets sacked a few times.

On Sunday, I think it is fine for people to show up at Lucas Oil Stadium in Colts jerseys with the No. 18 and Manning’s name on the back. I think it is deplorable for residents of Indiana to show up in Denver jerseys with the No. 18 and Manning on the back.

The people who do that were never fans of the Colts. They were fans of Manning or even worse, fans of winning.

The best news of all is that in three days, the game will be played and all of this stupidity will end.

Should the Pacers match Portland's offer sheet to center Roy Hibbert?

Yes, Hibbert is important to the team and the community
No, four years and $58 million is too much
Not sure, I like Hibbert but think the money could be better spent elsewhere
