Sure, I agree with you that the SEC Defenses are better. But I disagree with you that Luck would be worse if he was in the SEC.
Then you're an idiot.
Luck played with guys like Toby Gerhart, Coby Fleener, Chris Owusu, and Doug Baldwin his whole Stanford career. Lets say we put Luck in a Alabama's uniform with play makers like Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson and "Julio Jones", wow lets wonder how many National Championship Luck would have won.
Ok... lets try this your way...
Newton played with guys like Kodi Burns, Darvin Adams, Michael Dyer, and Terrell Zachery at Auburn. Lets say we put Newton in a Alabama uniform with play makers like Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson and "Julio Jones", wow lets wonder how many National Championship Newton would have won.
Oh... wait... he did win a National Championship. Even with scrub WRs and RBs. In fact, he did it in the SEC, against an Alabama defense that went on to win it the championship the very next year.
You called Green and Jones average based on their rookie performances? Seriously. They played pretty damn well for rookie wrs. Compare their stats to three top receivers right now rookie stats, and this is what we have:
Calvin Johnson (2007): 48rec, 756yds, 4tds
Larry Fitzgerald (2004): 58rec, 780yds, 8tds
Andre Johnson (2003): 66rec, 976yds, 4tds
A.J. Green (2011): 65rec, 1057yds, 7tds
Julio Jones (2011): 54rec, 959yds, 8tds
Need I say more? To call them average, yes you're an "idiot" then.
I can't believe the stupid ass comparisons you continue to make here.
Megatron = Played behind Roy Williams
, and played with an injured back his Rookie year.
Fitzgerald = Played behind Anquan Boldin
, and still managed to exceed Jones receptions.
Johnson = Not sure why you brought him up, since he was catching balls from David Carr
in 2003, but still managed to beat Jones in yardage and receptions.
Incidentally, if you want a measuring stick for Well Above Average, go look up Anquan Boldin's rookie stats.
Yes, A.J. Green and Julio Jones had great seasons for rookies... but their production was average for a WR in the NFL.
Here's the bottom line:
Luck may turn out to be great. But he might turn out to be a bust. WE DO NOT KNOW.
He's on a team that just went 2-14, and is in Free Agency shambles because of Manning's immediate legacy. The odds aren't in his favor.
ONE Preseason game, and a history at a school that is in a mediocre college conference where he couldn't even win his Senior Bowl Game, is not evidence enough that he can overcome those odds to me.
