We don't know anything about Curtis Painter

 

Through his first 37 passes, he threw 3 interceptions and had a 58.6 QB rating. Does anyone think that performance was a good predictor of Peyton Manning's career?

Curtis Painter has thrown a total of 28 passes in his career. He has a lower rating, but a lower interception rate than Peyton Manning through that many passes.  The point is, whatever Painter is, we don't know yet.  I'm not saying he's good, I'm just saying we have bigger problems, and an almost zero sample size, so all the energy spent hating on Painter is useless.  If we had a great, proven option sitting somewhere that we weren't picking up, that might be something to complain about.  Considering that half the starting QBs in the league are not very good, it seems unlikely that there is a great QB sitting on the couch somewhere. Surely one of the teams having a problem with their 1st QB would have called him already.
