Jim Sorgi


Sorgi is the most well-known of the Manning understudies, as he held the clipboard during most of the Colts' glory years, including their Super Bowl run in 2006. He was a sixth-round pick out of Wisconsin in 2004, the first QB drafted by the Colts after Manning. The Colts cut Sorgi in early 2010, and he signed with the Giants to be Eli Manning's backup, only to be placed on IR before the season. Sorgi is a free agent.

Career Colts stats: 14 games, 99 for 156, 929 yards, 6 TDs, 1 INT, 89.9 rating.

Other Colts quarterbacks in the Sorgi era: Josh Betts, Shane Boyd, Travis Brown, Chris Crane, Quinn Gray, David Greene, Joe Hamilton, Shaun King, David Koral, Jared Lorenzen, Mike McGann, John Navarre, Jeff Saturday (Pro Bowl center made one unsuccessful pass attempt in 2004), Adam Tafralis.
