This season for the Indianapolis Colts has been thwarted by injuries and disappointment. The surgery to Peyton Manning before the start of the season made everyone worry but never expect what became of the season.
The Colts opened up in Houston getting dismantled, looking like a High School team losing 34-0 at halftime.
Indianapolis also saw the effects of the lockout in one major facet, which is injuries. In the first four weeks they have lost both of their defensive captains, Melvin Bullitt and Gary Brackett, for the season. On top of that the Colts have practice squad call-ups playing on Monday night on both the defensive and offensive lines.
With all the adversary, the Colts looked like a team who could win the past two weeks. Curtis Painter looked like an average starting quarterback on Monday, going 13-30 for 281 yards and two scores. With Painter getting more exposure to the first string offense a question raises, do the Colts want him to save their season?
