The most pressing reason to make an immediate switch to Curtis Painter is that Kerry Collins simply isn't getting the job done.
Collins has had only two seasons in a long career with a lower completion percentage than the 49 percent he's posted with the Indianapolis Colts.
Both seasons came when Collins played just four games.
One of which was with the Carolina Panthers in 1998, where he attempted 162 passes with a 46.9 completion percentage. The other was in 2006, his first season with the Tennessee Titans, where he attempted just 90 passes and completed 46.7 percent of them.
Collins also has posted a dismal 4.91 yards per pass attempt, a career low.
Through three weeks, Collins is dead last in QBR (ESPN's new comprehensive quarterback rating). While Collins has improved in the rating each week, from a laughable 2.9 in Week 1 to an extremely low 22.4 in Week 3, Collins' average of 18.6 makes him the worst in the league behind Matt Cassel, who has a 22.3 QBR so far this season.
