Indy Fans Should Stick It

Curtis Painter did what he could and it was perfectly fine even if the cretins in the stands failed to realize it.

The ill-bred fans of the Indianapolis Colts missed the memo.  It read that there are 31 other cities who wish their teams were in the position their Colts were in earlier today.  Not since the infamous Cleveland bottle throwing incident in 2001, have I witnessed such idiocy from a home crowd.  The decision to boo the team for passing on the perfect season shows how blind they really are.  Curtis Painter is a 3rd string quarterback on a team who is the favorite to win the Superbowl.  He is a man trying to make a living in a game where he has had less action than the ball boys at Lucas Oil Stadium.  He is a 3rd string quarterback that played with a 2nd string offense simply because winning the Superbowl is more important than chasing perfection.  Just ask Tom Brady.  A perfect season is a tough task to accomplish and the Colts learned from the 2007 Patriots team.  A perfect season loses its luster if doesn’t end with a Lombardi Trophy.  Resting starters now gives the team a much better chance of being showered in confetti on February 7th.  Furthermore, Painter didn’t deserve it.  Having the opportunity to play quarterback in the NFL at any given time is a privelage.  It is an honor that should be celebrated.  What does anyone expect given his situation?  Facing a the best pass defense in the league with a 2nd string O, the odds were immensly stacked against him.  The bottom line is that he tried his best and it was good enough for his team.  Therefore it should be ok by anyone else as well.
