Our old Stampede Blue colleague Colin McCollough (who now writes for Bleacher Report, and who was unfairly getting trashed with regularity yesterday by radio talk show host Dan Dakich) Tweeted a great suggestion to me: Ask our readers who is to blame for this 0-7 season.
Collin is doing this over at BR, and is getting some interesting results.
So, the poll question is simple. Who is most responsible? I've mixed it up a little to allow for nuance, but you can only make one choice.
[UPDATE]: I've seen a few people request that 'Peyton's injury' be added as an option. No. Here's why: For years, the 'talking heads' that the Colts often railed against said that Indy was a six-win team without Peyton. The Colts vehemently rejected this, saying there was talent all over the roster. Today, sans Manning, this team cannot buy a win. Six was being generous. Add to this the fact that, for much of this season, Curtis Painter has played well. So, the reason this club is 0-7 has little to do with the QB position. Basically, if you are someone who is still saying, 'If Peyton were playing, we'd be 5-2,' you're not someone I take seriously. That ship sailed long before the embarrassment Sunday night, and then it SUNK after N.O. dropped 62 on our defense.
