Skip Bayless Hates the Indianapolis Colts

I've never seen one person hate one sports franchise as much as Skip Bayless hates the Indianapolis Colts. He flat out hates our guts. Why might you ask? Entering the 2011 season Peyton Manning took a spot on the sideline for us due to surgery. Many knew we would have a down season, but no one anticipated what followed. We went 2-14, and along the way took many beatings (most memorable probably being loss #7 to New Orleans 62-7). We started a hapless 0-13. And eventually had to choose between a 36 year old legend who's neck might not hold up, or a much cheaper rookie QB who appears to be the greatest thing since the 36 year old legend himself. We choose Luck. We had to. We had 2 choices: to look foolish for 3 to 5 years while Peyton rules in Denver, or to look foolish for 10+ years while Luck rules elsewhere. So what does this have to do with Skip Bayless's hatred of Indy? Here's what. Peyton was thrown into free agency and choose Denver as his new location, where a current wannabe QB, Tim Tebow, had Tebow Fever flowing well. But for John Elway it was a rather easy decision, since Peyton can actually throw the football consistently well. And as most of us know Skip Bayless has a HUGE crush on Timmy Tebow. So in Skip's eyes Peyton wouldn't have given Tebow the boot out of Denver, and ultimately out of a job, if Irsay and the Colts had not released Peyton. But lets not forget the man who also played a big role in all of this, Andrew Luck. Luck's insane NFL prospects chased Peyton out of Indy, which in reality is not his fault, but in Skip Bayless's eyes it is his fault as well. That's why Bayless also constantly rips Luck for everything and praises RG3 (RG3, the QB almost as overrated as Tebow). Well thats at least my opinion on why he constantly hates us; I could be wrong, maybe Irsay bullied Skip as a kid, who knows. Or maybe Skip is secretly a Bears fan and is still holding a grudge due to the result of Super Bowl 41.

Also here's some links to Skip related things about the Colts:
