05:00 AM ET 01.03 | If there's one owner in the NFL that embodies Tom Hanks' charcter in "Big", it's Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay. He's like an odd combination of a Frank Capra charcter and a guy who wants to be Hank Moody on Californication. Either way, Jim Irsay is an entertaining guy and he's not afraid to let the world know how excited he is that his Colts are in the playoffs a year after posting the league's worst record. If there's another thing Irsay loves to do, it's tweet and usually about the Colts. Irsay was one of the most vocal voices to come out in support of Pagano during his fight with leukemia, and all that heartbreak that he and his franchise endured is coming out in white hot passion now that the team is actually good. It's going to be one of the better matchups on Wild Card Sunday, let's just hope Irsay leaves the frat boy look back in Indy.

well if Flacco plays like Joe "i want to show the world im elite and watch me throw 90% of the time despite having ray rice here" flacco...then the colts will surely win.

Things are back to normal, as the Colts are playing playoff football in Baltimore. Err...umm...wait...well, I guess the fans won't actually be rooting the horseshoes this time around.

edit * Joe "i want to show the worlds i'm elite and watch me throw 90% of the time despite having rice rice here ..oh and did i mention i want an Eli contract this offseason" Flacco

Colts are winning no matter what Flacco does... this is Ray Lewis's swan song and it ends this week in Baltimore...

I say go for it Jim. Show up with a bimbo on each arm, a bottle of booze in one hand and a cuban in the other. Then make Choirboy clean up the booth and change the sheets.

Going to be a great day, a great game, in a Great City!!! Can't wait!

As a Pats fan, I'd enjoy seeing the Colts win on Sunday; would rather play them the following week than the Ravens.

Ray Lewis will have a marginal impact, and likely a negative one...he's old, coming back from an injury that isn't fully healed, just so he can play in one last home game...not for the good of the team...

I think Indy will beat Baltimore this weekend.

actually, you might be surprised by the size of the MD population that still roots for the Colts even though they left town...In MD, the top 4 teams based on popularity, in order, are: Skins, Steelers (not sure why), Colts, Ravens...

Good job Irsay...give the other team something to chew on. It's not like Baltimore really likes the Irsay family or the Colts for leaving the city years ago. Speaking of chewing on, hopefully the Ravens don't make Irsay eat his words.

If Houston beats Cincy, which seems likely, then the Pats will play the Texans regardless of what happens in Baltimore. If Cincy wins, then the Pats play the winner of Indy-Baltimore.

I think so too. Baltimore is playing flat, and Indy is in stride.

YOu know I had the Colts too for teh same reason, but now that Ray Ray is talking about his "last ride" the win one for the gipper factor might be sliding Baltimore's way

Agreed

Read the first two lines of this article, and picture Dennis Miller saying this during pre-game on Monday Night Football during his hey-day...

you had it worded wrong......

Ray Ray is a non-factor .

Can you say "hostile environment?" I still like the Colts in this game.
