Seriously? Jeff George Thinks He Can Pick Up the Colts Offense in Just Days

With some fans suggesting that the Colts use their 0-2 start as a reason to tank it and win the rights to draft Stanford’s Andrew Luck, one memorable Indianapolis passer from yesteryear believes he could be the answer for the Peyton Manning-less squad.

That would be 43-year-old Jeff George, the once-strong-armed (and still-cantankerous) passer whom the Colts chose with the first overall pick in the 1990 NFL Draft following a blockbuster trade. “Just talked to Jeff George, who lives in Indy and says he could pick up that Colts offense in a matter of days,” tweeted Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times.

George put up intriguing numbers as the Falcons’ QB from 1994 to 1996 (including 4,143 yards and 24 touchdowns for Atlanta’s 1995 wild-card squad) before bouncing around to Oakland, Minny, Washington, Seattle — and finally a cup of coffee in Chicago in 2004, before his career finished.
