Why we should NOT draft Andrew Luck

106 posts in this topic

There is a difference btw ESPN thinking something and EVERY SINGLE person that knows football or that is associated with it in any way agreeing that he is a consesus #1. Find scout, coach or player that doesn't think Luck is the real deal. Quote them and bring it to me and I'll eat my words.

Glad to see some people have my back when we want to debate intelligently.

Yes there have been good Pac10 QB's, but Captain Obvious those QB's are all retired and have not played for a LOOOONG time, so I dont see the point.

Todays culture says "you gotta take a QB with the #1 pick" especially since Matt Ryan, Mark Sanchez, and Sam Bradford all are having success. I just honestly dont think Luck is that guy. If Stanford plays in a BCS game I'll be really interested in seeing how he plays against top notch talent. I would rather just go with a QB whose got 1 year under his belt, getting better every week, and growing with our young WR's over a rookie QB and start the whole process again.

OK, We get it...you disagree with EVERY NFL SCOUT...your prerogative

However, No matter how much you try, you are not going to change anyone else's mind so apparently you just like to squabble

History is not on Lucks side, but I still think that you have to take him.

Personally, I don't like 2 year starters, especially not with the 1st overall pick. But I still say that you take him at that slot, if the combine goes well, and you really think that the game isn't too big for him.

I'm on the west coast and I watch a lot of PAC-10 football & IMO he's the best QB Ive seen in a minute. I listen to ESPNradio way more than I watch the channel, & I've heard more talk about Cam than Luck.

Aaron Rodgers was great, its kinda scary Luck is much better than he was in the collegiate level. Btw there are great NFL QBs from many NCAA conferences, so I disagree with the concept of picking a QB based on which one they came from. The one thing Luck has no other prospect does is an off the chart IQ.

Just showing there are good QB's from out west. His point was there was no good qb's from there. I showed him not only was that wrong but they have some pretty good ones that are in the hall of fame.

Of course there has been some pretty sucky ones too (Leaf= poster child) but to generalize like he did is false.

We'll see how he does in a BCS game.

What if Luck does awful his rookie year, should we take a QB in the 1st round again?

the one thing that sets him apart from the failures and busts is his intelligence and work ethic, its what makes him such a great prospect remember all the talk about how we would jump up and draft matt ryan? bet you wish we had now, same with luck you just don't pass on a qb that has it all.
