Week 12: Painter Keeps Winless Season Alive

At least the Colts were in it, right?

They got down to the 5 yard line within the final minute, but their chances were ended by Curtis Painter’s second end zone INT of the quarter.

Final score: Panthers 27, Colts 19.

There were actually positives in this game.  Donald Brown ran very well (14-80-1), Reggie Wayne re-emerged (5-122-1) and the Colts recorded 3 sacks (Freeney, Mathis, and Angerer).

Pat McAfee played well, as always.  He punted well, but also saved 2 TDs.  He has saved a ton this year.

But, in perhaps the most obvious example this year, Curtis Painter lost the game.  He was 15 of 29 for 226 yards, 1 TD and 2 INT.  For a short while, I actually thought he might do it.  Then, intercepted in the end zone.  He should not be starting.

And, finally, what a neat moment for both Marvin Harrison and Colts fans at halftime.  Marv was inducted into the Colts’ ring of honor.  Owner Jim Irsay concluded by saying “Canton, Ohio awaits this man”.  He deserves it.

The Colts travel to the rival New England Patriots next week.  The rivalry has lost a lot of its luster, as it is normally Brady-Manning, and it should not be much of a game. 

0-11, folks.  0-11.

Andrew Luck looked good last night…
