Curtis Painter.JPGAnd then there were none. The Colts perfect season is over (which means the 1972 Dolphins still hold the record for the only team to have a perfect season throughout the Super Bowl). It was a very unsatisfying ending to their perfect run. At the end of the third quarter, Colts coach, Jim Caldwell, decided to rest QB Peyton Manning and put in rookie Curtis Painter and well, as you would have expected, that was all the Jets needed to pull off a a 29-15 win. Of course it’s easy to criticize Caldwell for pulling Manning  (as everyone will be doing this week) but if Manning did get hurt, then you can bet we’d all be questioning Caldwell’s decision to keep him in. So, basically it was a no win situation and a huge gift to the Jets who are still in the playoff hunt.
