    Watching the Colts game yesterday I thoroughly enjoyed watching their season fall short of undefeated, but one black spot shrouded the laughter. Indy's back-up Quarterback Curtis Painter was booed on and off the field. The look in Painter's eyes showed that he was clearly very depressed and I could not help but feel compassion for his situation. Anyone who has played sports at any level above Youth League knows how it feels to be booed, but Painter's situation was worse. He was blamed for the end of the Colts' undefeated season. Of course, Painter's play was terrible, even laughably poor. But he was playing with every other back-up in the game as well, and I dare say that Manning would not fair so well with his All-Star line and Receiving corps sitting on the bench either. I know that, in Curtis Painter's situation, I would of said "Hell with this. Send somebody else out there Caldwell."

    No, he's getting paid 6 figures to stay in shape and sit the bench. And he was beyond terrible.

    Hahaha I found this humorous, but it's true. The back-up quarterback is the best job in the world. But still, I just felt compassion for his situation.

    No, I think Caldwell and Polian were blamed.

    Sorry for a Colts play hah that's a new one...but seriously no he has a job to do and didn't do it very well its not like he didn't know he was going to play.. To say he single-handedly costed the Colts their perfect season is laughable at best!

    I have to admit I did feel bad for him. Per the Colts fans he did not even get any practice time in last week. The Colts are imploding. Apparently some players have expressed their displeasure and Polian just ripped all the Colts fans.

    This firestorm won't burn out quickly. It's a STORY. The mediots will dog Polian and the Colts about it all through their brief stint in the playoffs.

    Absolutely not. It's part of the territory.

    Your job as a back-up quarterback is to be prepared for all situations. If he knew he was going into the game, he clearly wasn't ready for it.

    Perhaps Bill Polian was looking to trade him for a 2nd rounder in 2010. :p

    Oh well ... Perhaps he can get a 7th rounder for the 7th rounder Painter.
    BTW ... Painter was the 12th rated QB in the draft ... supposedly anyways.
