    RT @AlbertBreer: Jim Caldwell says Dan Orlovsky will take the starting job from Curtis Painter at QB this week

    Dan O could become HOU ultimate spoiler if he lead IND to victory over HOU. Wouldnt that be a nightmare?

    Since we've all been talking about ancient QBs lately, is Bert Jones available for them?

    who better to lead a team to 0-16 than a QB who actually lead a team to 0-16...

    Andrew Luck, welcome to Indy...

    Irony of ironies if the Texans went up to Indy and DanO beat them and prevented them from winning the AFC South and getting into the playoffs.

    The Colts want to make dang sure that they have a good deal of experience insuring that they suck all the way for Luck.

    Caldwell probably sees that Painter is getting better and doesn't want to take the chance that they might accidentaly win a game so he'll start Orlavsky to ensure the Suck for Luck race.

    I'm convinced Indy is the worst team in history. They are just plain awful to watch. It's amazing how valuable Manning is. I didn't really understand it until this season. Manning should win the MVP every single year.

    Orlovsky actually had a good game for the Colts. 30/37 for 300+ yards and 2 TDs. They still lost, but impressive outing by DanO.

    They might have to bench him just in case they win some games by accident and miss out on Luck.

    Everyone looks good against Bill Belicheat's pass defense(310 yards/game).

    He was still better than average against them. That's a big promising, maybe they will win a game or two before the end of the season. It sure would help the Texan's strength of schedule for tiebreakers if they did. Same with the Jags and Titans.
