The only thing more ridiculous than suggesting the Colts should sign Brett Favre is the idea that Jeff George, widely considered one of the stupidest quarterbacks to play, could learn and thrive in the modern Colts offense. So, naturally, it should come as no surprise that Jeff himself thinks he can indeed learn the Colts offense... and in just a few short days!
Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times reports via Twitter that Jeff George said he could pick up the Colts offense "in a matter of days."
The Colts drafted George with the No. 1 selection, 21 years ago. He’ll be 44 in December.The team presumably isn’t interested.
I think we can presume a lot of things about the Colts, such as their front office is clueless, their coach is little more than a stooge, and their last two first round picks are complete and total busts at this point in their careers.
However, one thing we can state as FACT is that the Colts have absolutely no interest in bringing back Jeff George, and that a brain dead jelly fish has a better chance of learning the current Colts offense in a few days over George, a product of Warren Central High School in Indianapolis and former No. 1 overall draft pick by the Colts in 1990.
I guess this is what happens when things fall apart as rapidly as they are now. We're actually talking about Jeff friggin George, the No. 1 draft bust in Indianapolis Colts history.
