Colts Owner Jim Irsay issued an apology to fans for missing the playoffs, saying 'the buck stops with him,' but Thursday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington place blame where blame is due; on the shoulders of Carson Wentz and on the Hard Knocks Curse.
Jonas Knox: "Let's just go ahead and make this less confusing for Jim Irsay. There's two issues with the team. Number one is your quarterback Carson Wentz, and number 2, you got the Hard Knocks curse. Remember they wanted to do in season Hard Knocks? They thought it was brilliant and next thing you know, they're taking a dump in the final game of the regular season and letting Pittsburgh in with a 9% chance of making the playoffs."
LaVar Arrington: "Not only did they take the dump in the last game, but take a look at who they took the dump against. If you would have said to me, all you have to do guys, is beat Jacksonville to get into the playoffs, wouldn't you be sitting there giddy?"
