NYJ 29 - Indy 15
Staying true to their plan, the Colts showed they cared little about an undefeated season. Coaches and management deemed it necessary to pull many of the key starters in the second half, having locked up the #1 seed in the AFC. And that was their decision, like it or not.
It was soon easy to see that Curtis Painter does not take enough quality snaps in practice to be ready to rally a team against another one that needs the win, just to stay alive. He is not ready for the big time just yet. Having said this, I must call out the Indianapolis fans at the game who showed the same utter classlessness that one expects in Oakland, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh -- not in Indy.
There is no need to boo a third string rookie QB, who has only preseason games on his resume.
It was not his fault, he was only doing what was asked of him and getting some OJT, in the process. He's no slouch. He was a standout at Vincennes (IN) Lincoln High School and Purdue. It's his first damned game as a pro. (As I recall, John Elway was benched after his first three games as a pro.)
To put it bluntly, I am stunned that the fans in this city would stoop to such a low level. This is not a case of poor play by a veteran player or stupid play calling by the coaching staff. So let it be known that I am ashamed to be in the same fan base and breathing the same air as these low-life pukes.
Painter will be a good QB someday, but I wouldn't be too sure it will be here in Indianapolis. I know if I were him, I'd be looking for a trade down the road and hope to have the opportunity to come back to Lucas Oil Stadium just to stick in the asses of those same ignorant pukes.
That's all I have this week. Feel free to comment on the other games while I wash my hands of the dirty bacterial stench that comes with being associated with the classless vermin, who present themselves as Colts fans. I hope everyone of them get rashes.
