Why Painter should get a shot

Kerry Collins - 2 TD drives in about 170 minutes of football...both of which were in garbage time and game was completely out of reach.

Curtis Painter - 1TD drive in 10 minutes of football...which was a game-tying drive in the 4th quarter against one of the top defenses in the NFL

Clearly neither of these guys are good (see the QB Rating), however, it appears that Painter has better timing with the receivers than Collins does, and this is under the circumstances that Collins takes the first team reps in practice...Painter had some terrible terrible throws, but I think this was caused by some jitters.  I don't fault him for the strip-sack fumble returned for a TD...that was just garbage pass protection on that play.  If we are not going to go out and try to pick someone up, I say we role the dice with Painter...
