I think the worst thing you can do is have a mistake and try to keep living with it going forward,” Irsay said in reference to Wentz. “为我们, it was something we had to move away from as a franchise. It was very obvious.

No disrespect to Jacksonville, but I mean, they’re the worst team in the league. You play well and hard for the first quarter or so, and they’re looking to go to their locker room and clean it out. I’ve never seen anything like that in my life.

Isray explained that by moving on from Wentz, he felt that the organizationcorrectedthe matter.

Wentz will likely take over the starting role in Washington, where he will have a chance to redeem himself in Week 1 when the Commanders take on the Jaguars. The Colts added veteran QB Matt Ryan to their roster.
