With a two-game lead in the AFC South, the Colts stand a good chance to secure a home playoff game, if not a first-round bye.

But Indy has suffered two blowout losses in its last three games, including a 40-11 pounding in Arizona on Sunday, and needed to come back from an 11-point halftime deficit in Tennessee on Nov. 14. Loquacious owner Jim Irsay took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to voice his frustration.

This isn’t the first time Irsay has tweeted his frustration about his team. He said his team had a “crap performance” and he gave his “commanders” and “earful” after a preseason loss to Buffalo.

The Colts (7-4) play host to the Titans (5-6) on Sunday.

Tweeting is for people without direct access to the people you want to make a point to. He could just go talk to the team if he needed to say that. He makes himself look like an idiot.

Is this guy a heavy drinker?  It would explain a lot.

The Demon Seed of Drunken Bob - important to remember where little Jimmy came from.  Here is the sports illustrated article on Drunken Bob http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1065650/index.htm.  Dont know if little Jimmy is a drinker like daddy was but he certainly is a buffoon like daddy.  Amazing how he thinks a few tweets from him affect team performance; too bad daddy didnt have twitter - that would have been classic

This guy has not accomplished ONE thing in his life outside inheriting the team from his father - who was the self-made man. After college, instead of spreading his wings and flying out of the nest to make something of himself, he immediately went back to work for his daddy.

Same deal as Jerry Jones - worked for his daddy's insurance company right after college and used family wealth for one business failure after another. Sure, he eventually hit (prospecting) but that was after burning through his family money. Just lucked out in an industry (oil) where you need money to make money.

That's the sign of insecurity and delusion ... flaunting wealth and taking credit for everything other people do.

Somebody take away his smart phone and his key to the wet bar, please.

Money can't buy class...or apparently, better tweets than a random drunk high school student.  I love how he punctuates each of them with ALL CAPS

He makes Jerry Jones look presidential by comparison.

Irsay looks like he is messed up on something.  He certainly acts like he has mental issues. 

The best thing an owner can do is put the right people in place and then stay out of it.

Say what you really feel Jimbo.  If Denver wins a Super Bowl and we don't I look like a fool (again).

Another entitled moron that inherited what he has.

He even looks the part of a greasy, drunken idiot...

@magicvilas  Thanks for that post.  It is incredibly amusing to watch some of you guys continue to get twisted in knots over this stuff.   Thanks again.
