Luck breaks Newton's record

12 posts in this topic

By 1 yard. The rookie single game passing record (yards) was given to Andrew Luck this past Sunday against the Dolphins.

Luck: 433

Newton: 432 and 422 (2nd and 4th)

Just thought I'd throw it out there. Can't wait for the Newton vs. Luck matchup, hope we show the doubters in this organization that Newton was the right choice regardless of Luck skipping out for a season and returning to school.

how many weeks did it take him to do it and how many 400+ yard games has he had?

at any rate, i don't really care and i don't think cam does either. i knew he was going to be good. his success doesn't detract from the fact that newton is still incredibly impressive, had one of the greatest rookie seasons of all time and the path that this team is on with him.

at this point...luck is just another QB out of 32(ish) starters in the league. he's not in our division. not in our conference. he's not our concern.

Hats off to Luck for breaking the record. However, Luck has been given the chance the all rookie QB's should have, the opportunity to develop, without all of the media intrusions...........

That hurts man. Cam no longer in the record books for that statistic because of a single yard. One of these rookies will probably top his season mark too honestly.

Records are made to be broken. Be thankful he had it.

Rookie records don't really mean squat. The kind of quarterback you develop into over your career is what's important.

Luck deserves loads of credit for how he's playing. These rationalizations are silly.

People need to get over that Luck didn't come out last year and stop trying to find some way to invalidate everything he does like a bunch of jealous schoolgirls.

Newton has areas he needs to work on, but I'm still happy with him. He should be judged on his own merits, not how he compares to Andrew Luck

Let it go already.

    • I also want to take this space of internet to announce that I'm still so fuging happy we got Monk. 
    • Not really a fan of MCW. Not even sure if he is better than Sessions tbh. I don't think Teague will want to be a backup much less take the MLE, but who knows- might not be a market for him. Livingston would be incredible but don't think we have the money and why would he leave Golden State unless they don't offer him anything.  Here's someone that's not a free agent, but I would not mind us taking a shot on: Dante Exum. With the Jazz trading up to get Donovan Mitchell Exum looks to be ousted as the PG of the future there. He's had his struggles but he's extremely talented and has never really had a great mentor like Kemba would be.  I'd give them Sessions (lol), Jeremy Lamb plus a couple second rounders. Would not give up any of our core: Batum, MKG, Cody, Kemba, Dwight, etc. Wonder if they would bite on that? It's crazy that second rounders really do become valuable. If we had an extra second we could have had Mason + Bacon likely.  Part of me wonders whether or not we will try to have Monk run some backup PG. That would be a mistake IMO. He needs to be running off screens all day.
    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
