It seems Luck's stats are a bit inflated since he's peg as the next best QB of the NFL since Moses parted the Red Sea.

The media is so doing their best to keep the hype alive even thou they seem way more entertained by RG III.

The media can peg him as the next best QB but that in no way inflates a guys stats lmao. On top of that, they are more entertained by RGIII, aren't we all? But they don't need a ton of flash to want to watch him. How many first overall rookie QBs have their team in line for 10-11 wins? He is doing something special.

Let's be real the Colts were not a bad team. IMO, they tanked their seasin to get Luck. A team is both offense and defense. U're going to tell me after going 2-14 this team miraculously bounce back to Peyton type of wins the next season with a new QB. Feed the hype will u.

Teams don't tank like you would think. You obviously have never played a sport at a high level.

1) There is too much ego and pride involved with athletes to tank. You may get a quitter here or there, but you aren't going to get a third of a team to quit.

2) By quitting on their team last season they put themselves in a position to have lower stats, be cut, and because of lower stats, not get a new contract or get a contract lower than what they could get.

Use the common sense will u.

Oh wait, you just tried to tell me earlier that "media inflated his stats". As if they went onto the box scores and added yards and scores to boost him.

The question is, did the Colts simply focus on their starting QB and no one else so much so that if they were to go down the team's season is over? How is that in line with what ur claiming about team pride? R u saying it's the players who got cut fault the team tanked after making it to the play offs almost every season under Peyton? So they intentionally tanked the team?

Teams do not tank. There is too much at stake. Stop being silly.
