Collins to Start Week One for the Colts if Manning Isn’t Ready

Colts executive Bill Polian confirmed that Kerry Collins — not Curtis Painter — will start in Week 1 if Peyton Manning (neck surgery) can’t. The decision isn’t sitting well with some Colts.

“We don’t even know him, we ain’t vanilla, man, we ain’t no simple offense,” Reggie Wayne said. “So for him to can come in here and be the starter, I don’t see it. I think that’s a step back.” We wouldn’t have very high hopes for Collins as a starter either. At age 38, his extreme lack of mobility would be a major problem for the Colts’ suspect offensive line.

  1. Makes sense for a veteran like Collins to start if Mannings not ready.
    Should have no problems running a watered down version of the colts offence.
