After one preseason game, they are already saying Luck can beat Newtons' 4,000+ yard season (just passing).

He also played the entire 1st half (minus 1 drive) which means he was playing against the Rams 2nd team defense in the PRESEASON.

The Colts looked like they were playing in a playoff game and the Rams could hardly give a poo. No surprise though, the Colts wanted to give their fans something to look forward to.

Sure, he can. So can Wheedon, Tannehill or any of the other guys. Will any of them? Not likely, but I'd guess Luck has the best shot out of the bunch.

It was the first preseason game. Conclusions about the regular season are ridiculous.

The media wants to slobber the knob of someone whose knob they've been slobbering for the last three years?

Who cares who is better?

Seriously, as long as Newton continues to improve and plays like I know he is capable of, I don't care if Luck is better than him or not. We'll still have a great quarterback on our hands.

He apparently played well. Good for him, but there is no reason to make this about Newton or for Panther fans to get defensive about anything.

From the highlights I saw, Luck seems to be as good as advertised. The ball just looks perfect coming out of his hand. I would be very optimistic if I were Indy.

As far as comparing him to Cam Cam Bam Bam? Holla at me when Luck breaks off a 50 yard TD run and outruns a NFL secondary.

Or drags one 15 yards into the endzone like Cam did to Tampa Bay.

oohweemayne The kid played great! I would never have guessed he was a rookie. Honestly, I didn't believe the Luck hype until I saw him yesterday. Yes, it was against the Rams, but it was also his first start in the NFL. Wow, just WOW.

Newton vs Luck is going to be talked about for years to come!! Hopefully they will meet in a Superbowl or 2

So it Begins ...

Newton is No Reflection on Luck or Vice Versa. The real problem for Luck (when the season starts) will be that Re-Built Line. There is No Continuity. Once teams start Game Planning and NFL Blitz Packages and Coverages ... Then Let's See If He is in the Payton Manning - Cam Newton Rookie Season Talk.

I am a football fan through and through. The Panthers are My Team. I do like certain players on other teams. Andrew Luck may be everything the Sports News has told us for 3+years. I don't cheer for any player to fail. I think good players make the League better. I just wish ESPN, Sporting News, NFLN and All the Other Talking Heads Would Wait Until, at least, the 3rd or 4th Week of the Season until they even entertain Any of this talk about what Luck or RG3 or Tannyhill or Any of these Rookie QB's and Draft Picks will be in THIS LEAGUE. After all; These are the Same People Who Told the Whole World ... Cam Newton Will Be the Biggest Bust in the History of the NFL. So WTF Do They Really Know?

Wait, so because they were ranked higher than an absolutely awful Panthers squad they are a good defense? Is that your point? Otherwise your pointing out the comparison is absolutely pointless.

Luck's first TD was a glorified handoff. The second one was a great throw. But he was playing the 2nd team by that point, nobody was within three feet of the receiver.

I'll withhold judgment until. . .you know. . .the games actually mean something.

Welcome to having a QB that rewrote the rookie record book. Its difficult to know how to act but when you're confused just ask one of the ones whose figured out how to handle it.

These comparisons will be made EVERY season until someone breaks Cams records.

Yep, I just saw this video on NFL.com. The new format of the site isn't allowing me to post comments on it there, or I would.

And what a crock of crap that video is. Stupid conclusions after one preseason game is expected from idiot fans, but for NFL.com to come out and make this comparison is horrid journalism AT BEST. At worst... well... the media just can't accept a man like Cam being #1 in any stat line.
