I'm sure most of you have heard by now, but Jim Irsay announced today that the Colts don't expect Manning back this season. We've seen Kerry Collins come out of retirement and slowly get better every week, but I don't think many Colts fans are convinced that he can keep starting.
How about CP last night? The first few posessions showed an inexperienced quarterback learning on the fly. The fumble return for a TD came from his inexperience and not realizing what it means when "The Hair" is coming in on a blitz. That last drive, however, showed me something. Painter clearly knows the offense better than Collins, and he made some solid throws. He led the Colts to a tying touchdown against the Steelers D. That's impressive.
Thoughts from Purdue fans on where the Colts should go from here at QB?
