With all the talk on Monday from columnist Bob Kravitz saying the Indianapolis Colts should consider Brett Favre, another 40-something former quarterback is offering his services to the team.

Jeff George, who was once the first overall pick in 1990 by the Colts, told Sam Farner of the Los Angeles Times that he could pick up the Indy offense in a matter of days. Colts fans who lived through George's tenure  in Indianapolis that included a 1-15 campaign in 1991 must surely be thrilled to hear that news.

Actually, with Bill Polian already reported to have been scouting Stanford prospect Andrew Luck, perhaps the Colts should sign George, who has been out of the NFL since 2004, to greatly improve their chances of getting the first pick to assure they could draft Luck. With Kerry Collins or even Curtis Painter at quarterback, the Colts chances of winning enough games to stay out of the top pick in the draft are drastically better than with George, seven years removed from the NFL, under center.
