Well, that was fast.
Less than a month after signing the former Ball State product with some pretty significant local fanfare, the . have parted ways with quarterback Nate Davis
Interestingly, Curtis Painter has never seemed as if he knows what the hell to do during a football game. Yet, he still remains the back-up quarterback. In preseason the last two years, Painter is 32-62 for 427 yards, 1 TD and 5 INTs. I'm guessing the QB rating is somewhere in the 30s. Painter has also fumbled a few times.
But, hey, whatever. Management wants to cut the guy who didn't throw and INT last week, that's their business. I think the kid deserved another chance. They seem willing to give Painter all sorts of chances despite the fact he is the worst quarterback in all of the universe.
[UPDATE] Thanks to a reader for posting this in the comments. Painter's regular season stats are 8-28 (28.6%), 83 yards, 0 TDs and 2 INTs for a quarterback rating of 9.8.
Yeah. It's now so obvious to me why Nate Davis was cut over Painter. (slams head into wall)
