Caldwell Defends Backup QB Curtis Painter

Sounds like Jim Caldwell is doing his best to defend backup QB Curtis Painter as the backup for Peyton Manning:

I am asking Indianapolis Colts coach Jim Caldwell to tell me why fans should feel perfectly comfortable with Curtis Painter as Peyton Manning’s backup at quarterback this season. “You’re going to see with Curtis, a few more reps and opportunities, he’s going to get a lot better,” Caldwell is saying. “He’s got the size, the physical tools in terms of arm strength, the whole package, and he’s learning. There’s no question that everyone should be optimistic about his future.” Painter, a second-year pro, has appeared in only two regular-season games, completing 8-of-28 passes for 83 yards with two interceptions and three sacks. His passer rating – a perfect rating is 158.3 – is 9.8.
