Andrew Luck did not play last night because his owner did not want him to get hit

Andrew Luck did not play last night for the Colts, and their owner Jim Irsay was very upfront with why he sat his Franchise QB.  Last night Jim Irsay the owner of the Colts said that he did not play Luck because of all the blitz packages Rex Ryan runs. 

Ryan was upset with the news and even took a little shot back at the Colts owner.

“I don’ t know, take a look at the tape. See how many times we blitzed,” Ryan said. “I can tell you one thing, Chuck Pagano’s a good friend of mine, legitimately good friend of mine. I have way more respect for him than I do others.”
