Keep Losing To Draft Luck

13 posts in this topic

If we lose out on him to freakin Buffalo I will be pissed. Aside from having a cannon for an arm he was valedictorian of his high school class. He is majoring in Architectural Design at Stanford. His dad was a former pro football player. If you look at his picture he looks like a nerd. He is exactly who I want playing QB for us. The Sheriff is a big time nerd as well...all of the great ones are. Fact.

Yup we need Buffalo to win. If we both finish with one loss who gets the number 1 pick?

I think it goes by head to head and then divisonal records. Since we don't play Buffalo, it would be our divisional record against theirs. Sorry to those of you that want us to beat Tampa (even though I don't think it'd happen anyways). I hate to say it but continuing to lose is in the best interest of this franchise for the future.

So we'll have drafted 4 QBs in 2 years assuming we do this(even though Armanti was drafted as a WR, he still played QB). I wonder if that has ever been done before lol.

I just hate that the reality is that we can't pass up a chance at this high caliber of a QB in Luck. I just hope management isn't sold enough on Clausen to pass this shot up. Assuming there is a lock out and the NFL has a lottery type draft, I wonder who we will take in the next draft.

IMO there is no way in hell another coach comes in and doesn't hand pick Andrew Luck as his #1 pick at QB if the opportunity is there.

It might be in the best interest of our franchise if we tank to get the number one overall pick in the draft, but there is no way in hell I'm going to be cheering for us to lose. Luck might end up being a great QB, but he also might end up being JaMarcus Russell, Alex Smith, David Carr, or Tim Couch.

There's also a chance Luck might not even enter the NFL draft this season.

I'd much rather we fight to the bitter end, and end up with the 4th or 5th pick in the draft than to tank the season so that we can take a chance on someone that might end up being great, or might end up being a total bust.

I am down with losing out to get Luck. Looking long term success here.. the #1 pick could be the difference between the next 10 years of mediocrity or creating a dynasty.

I think everyone is overlooking one important little detail here... Andrew Luck is only a redshirt sophomore. He doesn't have to come out of college this season. If he is as smart as you say, he might insist on staying in school another year to get his degree.

It would seem foolish of him to not come out this year with him currently being the unquestioned number one pick, but just remember that at this time last year Jake Locker was going to be the number one overall pick in the 2010 draft.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
