Bob Kravitz says Jim Irsay may have won the PR battle (even if he didn’t intend to do so) but may lose the football war. He also doesn’t expect Peyton Manning to accept the terms of a reduced deal:
Now, if Manning is willing take Irsay’s offer, let me be the first to throw him a parade while uttering mea culpas. It would be an amazing, selfless thing to do, and would solidify his place in this community as a true icon and sports hero.
I just don’t see it.
The cons outweigh the pros.
By a lot.
