The #Colts claimed QB Charlie Whitehurst off waivers, with Andrew Luck out for several weeks.

- RapSheet got it first–look out folks! With Whitehurst in the mix, should the Colts turn it over to Clipboard Jesus, or continue to start Hasselbeck (who, by the way, is 2-0 as a starter this year)?
- Deadspin had a great article at the beginning of the season, which compared the careers of longtime backup quarterbacks to evaluate which second-string signal callers have had the easiest/cushiest careers. That of Whitehurst, who has made over $5 million going into this season, HAS to be near the top.
- Like I said a few weeks ago, I’m all for keeping the Hasselbeck renaissance going. Tough break for Andrew Luck, missing another month or so, but it could be the catalyst which catapults Matt Hasselbeck into a few more years on the tail end of his career, and keeps Charlie Whitehurst kicking around a little while longer. Who knows–maybe he’ll start a game or two for the Colts.
