Too Many Mistakes Again; Colts Fall in Cincinnati 27-17

The Colts longest season in quite a long time continued on Sunday, as the team took on the young Bengals in Cincinnati, and walked away with a disheartening 27-17 setback. They are now 0-6 on the season, the fifth time in franchise history they have started the season losing their first six games. Indy did […]

Colts Can’t Hold a 17-Point Lead in 28-24 Loss to Chiefs

Curtis Painter had the help of Peyton Manning all day Sunday, but even that wasn’t enough to deliver a much needed win for the now 0-5 Colts. Sunday at home, Manning watched from the Colts’ sideline for the first time since August, but the Chiefs were able to rally anyway as the Colts fell 28-24. […]

Caldwell Says No Doubt Painter the Starter at QB

Curtis Painter will start at quarterback for the Colts on Sunday, when the Chiefs visit Lucas Oil Stadium according to Phil Richards of the Indianapolis Star. “I probably didn’t make myself clear earlier in the week,” Colts coach Jim Caldwell said today. “I said this early in the week, that yeah, there’s no question, he’s […]

Caldwell Doesn’t Name Starter at QB for Week Five vs KC

Despite playing pretty well in his NFL debut on Monday night in Tampa, today head coach Jim Caldwell would not name Curtis Painter as the Colts starter for their week five game against the Chiefs.

Colts Can’t Stop the Run Late; Fall to 0-4 in 24-17 Loss to Buccaneers

Colts Going with Curtis Painter at QB Monday Night

Colts coach Jim Caldwell confirmed Friday that quarterback Curtis Painter will make his first NFL start against the Buccaneers on Monday Night Football.

Colts with Plenty of QB Questions After Loss to Steelers

Peyton Manning is out, Kerry Collins is hurt and Curtis Painter isn’t sure if he’ll be starting next week. It’s just another messy Monday in Indianapolis. Less than 13 hours after a third straight loss, the Colts’ quarterback carousel spun wildly — team officials denied a report Manning was lost for the season, declined to […]

Signing Kerry Collins Was A Good Move

There’s been a lot of debate over the significance of the Colts signing veteran quarterback Kerry Collins lately, and rightfully so.  We’ve been on a roller coaster ride about the condition of Peyton Manning after his neck surgery.  It seems every day the talking heads on Yahoo and ESPN are proclaiming a new likelihood of […]

Kerry Collins to Start Week One If Manning Isn’t Ready

Colts executive Bill Polian confirmed that Kerry Collins — not Curtis Painter — will start in Week 1 if Peyton Manning (neck surgery) can’t. The decision isn’t sitting well with some Colts. “We don’t even know him, we ain’t vanilla, man, we ain’t no simple offense,” Reggie Wayne said. “So for him to can come […]
