Jets end Colts' pursuit of perfection 29-15 Aided By Boneheaded Colts Coaching Staff

Well no one's perfect.....Not this year..

INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—The Indianapolis Colts kept saying a perfect season didn’t matter.
They meant it.

Coach Jim Caldwell pulled Peyton Manning and a handful of other starters for the previously unbeaten Colts in the third quarter, and the Jets took advantage by rallying for a 29-15 victory that ended the NFL’s longest regular-season winning streak at 23 games.

With Manning on the sideline, helmet on and standing next to his offensive coordinator, the Colts (14-1) lost for the first time since Oct. 27, 2008, at Tennessee, ending a franchise-record 13-game winning streak at home.

Especially this man after some of the dumb decision making, as some would say pulling your starting quarterback in an undecided game in a near perfect season to save him for the next game is pretty fu****g stupid.

Especially in a game were the QB Manning passed the 50,000 yard passing mark the quickest in NFL history. What a way to celebrate, throwing a game that could have led to a perfect season.  This man rivals Bears coach Lovie Smith for boneheaded maneuvers on the way to a Super Bowl loss.

Caldwell's questionable decision leads to Colts' first loss of season

Indianapolis Colts coach Jim Caldwell has been saying for weeks that going undefeated was "a secondary goal" for his team. On Sunday he showed he meant it.

With his 14-0 Colts holding a five-point lead over the visiting New York Jets late in the third quarter, the first-year coach pulled Peyton Manning in favor of rookie Curtis Painter. It was the football equivalent of waving the white flag. New York would go on to score 19 unanswered points, thus handing Indianapolis its first loss of 2009.

In theory, the benching of Manning wasn't a surprise. Caldwell had foreshadowed such an event for weeks. But you always got the sense that if it was going to happen, the coach would have done so at halftime or when the Colts had a big lead or small deficit.

Taking the presumptive NFL MVP out of the game with a five-point lead in the middle of the third quarter felt strange. It felt like Jim Caldwell wanted to lose...continue
