Y'know, I don't want to be in the position of defending Painter (because he had disastrous moments), but the Colts badly mismanaged the QB position that year. Rather than going with the man they had groomed as the backup, they instantaneously gave him a vote of non-confidence by making a terrible bet on washed-up Collins. When Painter finally got in there, he showed the nerves and yips that he should have gotten out of his system much earlier in the year. He had a couple nice games after mid-season, but eventually he seemed to give up like the entire rest of the team did. His career proved that he shouldn't have been a primary backup QB, but at least he gave it an honest shot. I have a much bigger problem with those who just took a lot of Colt $ without giving an effort (Richardson, Landry, etc.)
Your AFC I almost agree with, I just have the Steelers at #1/Pats #2. I have the Broncos at #6 instead of the Texans as well. I still think they can go 10-6 because of their Defense but without Peyton they have no chance to Repeat. Here is my NFC:
We have the same teams except in different order and I have the Vikes in at 6 over the Giants.
I don't know! Everyone seems to forget that Bran is a legitimate heir to that throne as well. Correct me if I am wrong but I think Deanarys is the same age as Bran... would be interesting to see if Bran can see through the Dragons eyes.
I feel like Jon could remain king of the north... while Bran and Deanarys become king and queen
