Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has expressed his discontent with former Colts quarterback Carson Wentz following his trade to the Washington Commanders.

Wentz only spent one season in Indy and Irsay explained why the team had to trade the quarterback.

“I think the worst thing you can do is have a mistake and try to keep living with it going forward,” Irsay answered when asked about Wentz, according to the Indianapolis Star.

Irsay also thought that this recent trade would be the best for everybody going forward.

“It’s just, for us, it was just something that we had to move away from as a franchise — it was very obvious,” he added via Zak Keefer of The Athletic.

The Colts boss also mentioned his team’s collapse against the Jacksonville Jaguars that kicked Indianapolis out of the playoffs.

“Your guy’s gotta pick you up and carry you through Jacksonville,” Irsay said. “(Wentz) has to do it. Not an option. Has to. No excuses, no explanations.”

The Jaguars performed worse than the Colts last season and Irsay thought the loss was unacceptable.

“No disrespect to Jacksonville, but I mean, they’re the worst team in the league,” he said. “I’ve never seen anything like that in my life. You say, ‘My God, there’s something wrong here. It needs to be corrected.’ I think that we feel like we did.”

Last year, Wentz threw 27 touchdown passes and over 3,500 yards, with just seven interceptions.
