I would give you a LIKE because I agree with most of what you said. But seeing how quickly it looks like the Colts are bouncing back under Luck so far this preseason, I wondering either the team intentionally "suck for Luck" or the Colts never thought much of building up their back up QBs like other teams do.
But you also raise an interesting question. Is it the QBs talent that makes them irreplaceable or the over all coaching of the team that makes them look good or both?
COLTS WERE DECLINING EVEN BEFORE MANNING GOT HURT. THEY LOOKED AWFUL AT TIMES IN 2010. AND THE TEAM IN 2011 IS THE NOT THE SAME TEAM MANNING HAD IN HIS PRIME WHEN HE HAD EDGE JAMES (HALL OF FAME CALIBER BACK), MARVIN HARRISON (ONE OF THE GREATS OF ALL TIME), REGGIE WAYNE (ROUTINELY TOP TEN IN THE LEAGUE), A BRILLIANT OFFENSIVE MIND, AND A VERY SOLID OFFENSIVE LINE. ON TOP OF THAT, MANNING HAD THE SAME OC HIS ENTIRE CAREER. BRADY HAS DEALED WITH MANY DIFFERENT SYSTEMS AND MANY DIFFERENT OCS. SO HOW IS BRADY A SYSTEM QUARTERBACK IF HE HAS PLAYED IN THREE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT STYLES OF OFFENSES?
Had to put it in all caps and bold because I really want this answered. If Brady is a system quarterback, how has he been able to play great in, at the very least, 3 different systems with, at the very least, 3 different OCs and make a SB app and multiple #1 seeds in all three?
Seriously, I thought people were done with this "System QB" argument. It is obvious he isn't - he's played in completely different systems throughout his career.
Better yet. Let me ask this question. Montana played in the same system his entire career, the West Coast. He retires, Young steps in and plays like a HOFer. So is Montana a system QB too? No, he isn't. But yet somehow it only pops up for Brady. So maybe people are just hating, likely scenario. Or maybe they do think Montana is a system QB, which means they are an idiot. Or maybe they just don't know football.
