Colts Top 10 Quarterbacks in Franchise History
Jeff George (1990-93)
The Colts traded up to select George with the first pick in the 1990 NFL Draft. Not only that, they signed him to the biggest rookie deal at the time. Both moves proved to be big mistakes.
Despite posting 41 touchdowns to 46 interceptions during his time with the Colts and being benched multiple times, he still is rated with a fairly high overall value to the team.
The Colts were a mess in Indianapolis before the mid-1990s, and George’s time here is indicative of that. Matt Hasselbeck would probably be a better option, but he’s only started five games for the Colts.
This is a prime example of how the history of the Colts isn’t all Unitas’ and Manning’s. Most of the franchise’s QB history looks more like the Browns of the past 15 years.
