Denver Broncos head coach John Fox has come to the defense of quarterback Peyton Manning, and he didn't hold back on Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay in the process.
Irsay had some critiques of Manning's time in Indianapolis and decided to make them public in an interview with Jarrett Bell and USA Today, published Tuesday. Fox subsequently sat down with Jim Miller and Pat Kirwan of Moving the Chains on Sirius XM NFL Radio, and gave his thoughts on the matter (via Gray Caldwell of DenverBroncos.com):

I'd be thankful of that one Super Bowl ring, because a lot of people don't have one.
