Not all hope lost

Mike Tanier brings a bit of hope to the situation:

In hindsight, it’s easy to think that these teams were more prepared than the current Colts. “Well of course, they were OK, they had Earl Morrall or Jim McMahon on the bench.” But remember who those quarterbacks were in the years in question: broken down former starters who had drifted to the bench. Collins, who once led a team to the Super Bowl, is not very different than those players, Week 1 notwithstanding.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
