In a slow news week, Philip B. Wilson believes thanks to Polian's support Curtis Painter may get the start: It sounds like Caldwell will make that determination Wednesday. I expect Painter to stick as the starter, if for no other reason than vice chairman Bill Polian’s continual support of the QB. Polian has doggedly maintained Painter hasn’t played as badly as some of us think. But the offensive numbers don’t lie. The Colts have scored 27 points combined in four games.

Jacksonville writer: Colts a debacle

Jacksonville has mired in medicrity (at best) since 1999 with few glimpses of "above average."  That doesn't stop Tania Ganguli of the Jacksonville Times-Union from accurately declaring the Colts' season a "debacle."  I guess it's better than reading about the Jaguars...

Chappell: Colts QBs failing

Mike Chappell tells us the Colts QBs have the turnover-to-TD ratio flipped upside down: The offense has failed to generate a touchdown in the past two games and has four TDs and 13 turnovers in the past 22 quarters. The Colts have managed only 27 points in the past four games and have failed to score more than 24 in a game all season. It's just the fourth time in club history...

Painter gets nod over Orlovsky as Colts QB

Colts coach Jim Caldwell has picked quarterback Curtis Painter to start Sunday's game against Carolina.

But after posting quarterback ratings of 51 or less in each of his past four games, fans were clamoring for another change. At 0-11, the Colts are the only winless...
