So Horsie Nation has apparently repaired to its fainting couch, in response to the Colts' 33-10 flameout against the Rams, in their preseason opener.
This suggests one of two things.
1. General amnesia.
2. I'm sorry, what was I saying again?
Oh, yeah: Colts, flameout, Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky throwing picks, panic in the streets.
People, people, people. You want to know what all that meant, in the grand scheme of things?
Zip. Nada. Goose eggs.
Those of you who are fretting over the Colts performance, remember this: It's preseason. Which is NFL-speak for "It doesn't mean a damn thing." Especially where the Colts are concerned.
A fun and relevant fact, particularly now: The Colts have lost 13 of their last 17 preseason games going back to 2006, the year they won the Super Bowl. That year, they were 1-3 in the preseason and lost to the likes of Cincinnati and Seattle. In the intervening years, they've been back to the Super Bowl once and never failed to make the playoffs -- and, write it down now, they'll win their division and go to the playoffs again this year.
So, chill, people. Nothing to see here. Move along.
