An open letter to Curtis Painter


Curtis -

I want to start by sayin' that I've got nothing but love for ya - this isn't a hate piece.  I write this (and post to Hammer and Rails) not as a Saints fan, nor as a Colts fan, but as a fellow Boilermaker. 

First, I thought it was a total dick move for the Colts to bring in Kerry Collins instead of, ya know, looking to their backup QB.  It was wrong, it was stupid, and it failed.  But that's not your deal.  All you can do now is go out every week and show them how wrong they were. 

And I like what I'm seeing - improvement each week.  Going from zero to hero will not happen overnight.  Just take it one week at a time. Nobody expects greatness this week or next.  You've got the opportunity to learn from one of the best, so take advantage.

But with that, I'd like to ask one thing - Cut your freakin' hair!  You're a Boilermaker, damnit!  It's time to put away childish things.  It's time to get down to business.  Yeah, I know Tom Brady has long hair, and off and on, so has our golden child, Drew.  But you're not Tom Brady.  And as we saw last night, you're definitely not Drew Brees.  Man up, Curtis.

 

Sincerely,

Boilernation
