Colts Vs. Bucs: Rooting For Curtis Painter To Succeed Monday Night

Curtis Painter has been no one's idea of a good NFL quarterback since being a sixth-round pick out of Purdue in the 2009 draft. Until this year, he had only made 28 pass attempts and was generally seen as nothing more than roster filler by most observers of the Indianapolis Colts.

That Painter has even hung around long enough to become the de facto starting quarterback is a bit of an ongoing frustration for the folks at Stampede Blue. But that doesn't mean they are rooting for him to fail in some kind of "I told you so" schadenfreude:

However, just like with Kerry Collins (another guy I root for because he's a good person who works like a dog to win), I'm rooting for Curtis because it would make me feel good if he got a little success. I like seeing good people do well, and I'll admit that I enjoy seeing assh*les look incompetent for the assh*le decisions they make. Thus, I'm rooting for Curtis tonight because A) It will be good for him and the Colts team, and B) it will 'stick it' to the redheaded troll currently running this franchise who, after giving his first round draft pick in 1995 $14 million, basically told Curtis to screw off.

In case that doesn't make it clear, Stampede Blue is not very happy with some of Bill Polian. Love for a team can make you do some funny things, though.
