The Colts can win with Kerry Collins

Kerry Collins is now a Colt, an emergency replacement while Peyton Manning heals. And let me tell you this: the Colts can make the playoffs with Collins. If they need to.

It still remains highly likely Manning will return early in the season. The signing of Collins is just in case something goes horribly wrong. Collins isn't great and he's older but he's good enough to keep the team afloat until Manning returns. He's got a strong arm, a solid head and Colts players will like him. He's in many ways the best case scenario for the Colts.

Collins wasn't great in his last few years in the NFL but that was more a product of some of the crappy Tennessee teams he played on. Remember, Collins has played in a Super Bowl.

So bringing Collins to Indianapolis is actually a brilliant move. Now we just wait and see when Manning returns.

I am not drafting Peyton this year, that's for sure.   

I'd hate to be you and have to play against the guy who steals him in the 3rd or 4th round in week 6 or beyond.

Mike Freeman!  Do they drug test the employees at CBS Sports.  The Colts aren't going to the playoffs with Kerry Collins.  He's can't audible like Maniac Manning and Collins is going to get crushed by any decent defense.  You talk about Peyton being 35 and that this is the beginning of the end.  Now the Colts will have an older quarterback that doesn't know the system and probably hasn't seen a play book.  Really?  You think he can hold the fort down until Manning returns?  Really?  Then when Peyton returns he's supposed to just find his groove and lead The Colts into the playoffs?  Really?  What are you smoking?

Kerry Collins isn't leading the Colts anywhere but to be in the running for a great draft choice.  Oh, maybe that's the Colt's strategy.  Play Collins, lose big, draft the Stanford QB.

Manning will start @ Houston!

Colts simply need a reliable QB to run practice and play games, if needed. Painter and Crew couldn't get it done! Every team has back-ups and the Colts finally found someone good willing to come here. No one else would!

Colts can Win with Collins. He is here to Win a Superbowl!
