Obviously he didn't play terrible, but I will give it a shot just for the poo of it.

 

In the second half he was 5-13 for 29 yards and they only won because of 3 Denver turnovers and 12 Denver penalties for over a 100 yards.

 

How did I do?  :zoro:

 

Edit:  And by the way, when was the last time we really benefited by a fortuitous bounce?  Seems like the ball always bounces the wrong way for us.  Or at least when it counts most  :thumbsd:

 

We have a black cat mascot :lol:

 

But honestly, I'd say we had at least a few today.

U should know by now that the bar for Luck is set quite low. No one cares if he over or under throws his balls or if he has bad footwork. Unlike the other young QBs that have more than proven themselves, Luck was given his Franchised QB job by those in the media. It was up ro to him to lose it. QBs like Russel, Cam , RG iii, and Colin will still have to prove themselves until the same folks who gave Luck his free pass into NFL, say that they too are worthy. But none of them, no matter how good look and play will be seen as better than Luck.

Beaten Seattle, Denver and San Fran this year now. Running away with the title "best young QB."

Luck is good.  Seriously.  Stop with this crap.  You've spouted the same crap every day for over 2 years now.

 

No one gets a free pass into being the #1 pick of the fuging NFL draft.  Was he overhyped?  Yes.  Is he overrated?  Yeah, probably right now anyways.  But the dude is good--and this coming from a self-professed Luck "hater" last year (okay, I didn't hate him but I thought he kinda' sucked).

Lots of QBs benefit from a fortuitous bounce here and there, including ours.

 

I'm sure someone will be along to explain how Luck actually played an absolutely terrible game and won only because of other factors :lol:

 

Luck played his usual dink and dunk game with occasional throwing mixed in there for good measures . Peyton was the one who showed his nerves and it was clear the Colts had his number. If he had benefitted from a fortuituous bounce here or there he would have been the one winning. Remember it was the Colts who had the Bronco by 19 in the 3rd quarter and all but made them win in the end.  Even the Announcers said that they wouldn't be surprised if the Broncos lost because Peyton's style of play with the Broncos was pretty much the same with the Colts.

 

Remember it was Peyton who took a team, Colts, that was pretty much in the dumps for  11 years and made them the team Luck now has, despite the BS the media is selling us.

Where did I say that Luck wasn't "good?" Please read. I said he's not being measured by the same stick QBs like Dalton, Cam, and other young QBs are measured with.

 

As a matter of fact, whenever asked who is a better QB at this point, Luck automatically goes to the head of the class without much reservations but not so with any of the other QBs. Their defense is that he's taken a bunch of "rag tag players and made the Colts a winning team. Hmmmm, are they talking about the same Colts team that was deep in the Play-offs 2010. But tanked their season when Peyton went down so they could get Luck? Let's be real, the Colts team was not the Panthers when they acquired Luck.

 

Also, I think you're talking about my peeve with how the media treated Blaine Gabbert, the other "chosen QB" who was never scrutinized by them. But they don't need to now,  I rest my case.  

 

My argument has always been the selective manner in which these young QBs are judged by those in the media. I will continue to point out the obvious.

You really should change your user title to "uninformed (and proud of it)" :wacko:

 

NFL teams in the real world don't tank seasons. The whole idea is so ridiculously stupid you have to have an IQ in the single digits to even think it's possible.

 

Blaine Gabbert wasn't scrutinized?  Riiiigght :rolleyes:

 

About the only thing you will "continue to point out" is how ridiculously little knowledge you have about football.

That's pretty funny actually, given that anytime a discussion comes up of legitimate things Newton needs to improve on, you're one of the main folks whose entire posts boil down to the phrase "no, he doesn't" :lol:

 

Among the "it's everybody else's fault but Cam's crowd, you're probably the second most vocal.  Footballisasport would be the first, but I generally ignore him given that the sum total of his football knowledge is found in his user name.

 

 

 

Which is proving mine.

 

If someone came in and posted about Newton's performance in a game the way you're posting about Luck - ignoring anything at all positive, minimizing anything related to team mistakes, etc - you'd be screaming "haters".  But you come here and apply the same tactics to Luck, which doesn't make you look confident in Cam.

 

Exactly the opposite.  It makes you look like you'll take any path to tear down other QBs who succeed, even the tactics you criticize others using against Newton.  That's not confidence.  It's insecurity.  Reality is the continuing attempt to prove everyone else isn't so great makes this crowd sound like a bunch of jealous teenage girls tearing down a school rival.

 

Truth be told, Luck's name likely wouldn't even come up on this page (why should it? he's in the AFC and we don't play him this year) if it weren't for insecure fans looking for something they can use to tear him down.

 

How about you try talking about Newton without this schoolgirl need to tear down everybody else and then maybe we can have an actual adult discussion?

 

Forgive me for taking so long to reply. I honestly just now noticed I was quoted. But anyways you obviously have me confused with someone else.  I literally made no mention of Cam. AT ALL!!! And since you have given no analysis of ANY football related skill or performance but instead have constantly chosen to insult and ridicule I must ask what football experience you are drawing your opinion from.

I don't know about Luck but give that QB on the Texan team the starting job. If they go on to win, they need to just go ahead and give him the starting job. The damn kid can even run. Didn't like the way he slid though. Could have broken his neck.

I hate to keep saying this, and give credence to what certain people say about media double standards, but if Cam Newton had a half like the first half Luck just had..... it would be all over twitter, on the Huddle, and in the media about how he isn't an NFL QB, he is inaccurate, can't read defenses, and is a certain bust.

 

 

 

Just saying.

Shoot...forget the media. There would  have been 100 threads on how much Cam has regressed since last week's game. As a matter of fact, there were threads created today on those two Ints, where some started in on Cam. SMH 

 

We can joke about it but it's so obvious that it's downright sad.

Luck just missed a wide open man in the endzone. Didn't throw to him.

Hmmm....He did it twice with two different receivers. One he sailed and the other one, don't know who he was throwing it too. I guess Trent Richardson isn't playing tonight. Luck looks like his usual self out there.  

 

On the other hand, that Texan QB looks all kinds of IMPRESSIVE. He's been playing Houdini throughout this game. I almost thought he was going to pull the same stunt Cam pulled earlier today against the Falcon's defense.

This fugging Keenum guy is going all Jake Delhomme on their asses. Slapping everyone around and chucking the ball all over the place.

Fun to watch and players are responding to him

I said it before, there was a reason they brought in the RB and reduced his attempts and brought in his college OC. The second coming of Peyton, HE IS NOT.

I am dying with laughter. The kid is like Houdini. He's not as solid and elusive as Cam and Russell but he's getting the job done.

 

I am sitting here praying he doesn't trip over himself as he escapes the grasp of the Colt's defense. His unorthodox style of playing is indeed quite entertaining. He's making Luck look extremely vanilla out there.

Well, if those in the media says he is, who are we to say otherwise.

This is almost embarrassing.

 

Luck is a good young QB.  But the idea that he is some prodigy is absurd.  He has a long way to go.

 

When I give him poo it is to bring everyone else back to reality.  This is what young good QBs go through.  Some great games, so poo-rific games

 

Edit:  When I started this post it was before he threw that TD  :lol:

He didn't see Fleener wide open in the endzone for the 2 point conversion

The TD was his first read. The reason he didn't see Trent was because he already decided to throw it to the other guy

. On the 2 pointer he didn't even look at Fleener who was wide open.
