Is that the only game Luck has played all season? Has Luck's QBR been crap all season.

Please don't think I am bashing Cam and get defensive, its just my opinion of when I have watched Luck he has been remarkable for a rookie, but I also know its a product of his upraising. Everyone has bad games, check Ryan at Arizona and Brees at Altanta.

Also I don;t blame Cam for the Panther's seasons failure, sure he was a bit off this year but Cam is young and will only get better.

Cam has a ypa of 8.3.

Luck has a ypa of 7.1.

Cam throws a TD pass every 25.4 attempts on average.

Luck throws a TD pass every 29.6 attempts on average.

Cam throws an interception every 35.5 attempts on average.

Luck throws an interception every 31.4 attempts on average.

Cam's completion percentage is 57.5%.

Luck's completion percentage is 55.5%.

Cam has rushed for 524 yards and 6 TDs.

Luck has rushed for 216 yards and 5 TDs.

Cam has 3 fumbles lost for the year.

Luck has 5 fumbles lost for the year.

The Carolina Panthers are 3-9.

The Indianapolis Colts are 8-4.

Wow, Cam is better in virtually every category, yet the Colts win more. GOSH I WONDER WHY?

RG3 is better than Wilson. People who say RG3 is captain checkdown don't watch Redskins games. Short passes is part of the offense, just as long passes are. I think some of us has been brainwashed by Chud into thinking deep passes should be the majority of throws.

Check out these RG3 stats

Passing 11+ Yards down-field

Comp% 60.9

TD-INT 9-2

Yds/game 99.3 (1st in NFL)

Yds/att 15.4 (1st in NFL)

He's also under- or overthrown his targets only 18.4 percent of the time, second-lowest in the league.

As I commented before, RG3 has been the best rookie, then Wilson, then Luck and Tannehil(who has faded.)

I'm going to say something that no one wants to hear...Cowherd is right. I talked about this with several people yesterday and Cam hasn't shown the ability to win games late when given a chance. It's easy for us to sit here and make excuses about the run defense, lafell's drop, or coaching, but Cam had a chance, down by 6 to lead a game winning drive. He failed. Which he has done over and over this year. Then I flip the switch and Luck does exactly what Cam couldn't...moved the ball, made perfect throws, kept his composure, and most importantly, he won. Can't argue that. Sorry.

Does that mean Cam isn't as good a QB? No. But it's something he has to improve on to take that next step to greatness.

But it's not just Cam failing or Luck succeeding. For example, in our last real chance yesterday, one of our plays was a screen. It was executed perfectly by the QB and the back, but the defense anticipated the play and blew it up. That is not a failure by Cam. So how do you extrapolate from that and say that Cam hasn't gotten it done? It's a team thing, not an individual thing.

No doubt, and I think he will as he gains more experience. Also, his game winning drives and 4th quarter comebacks will increase when the defense hold up at the end of games as well or he just gets some lucky breaks.

There are little nuances to the QB position, especially in those situations that Cam is still learning.

I think his ability is way ahead of his mind right now in my opinion. And I don't mean that as an insult to Cam or to imply he isn't smart. Everyone knew when we drafted him that he was a little bit behind the learning curve.

But he is a smart guy, and he still has a lot to learn about playing the QB position. But I am convinced he has the work ethic to learn these things.

And as I said earlier, once the things he is having to think about become second nature, things that Luck may have learned in college, with Cam's natural ability, he is going to be special.

I just think people expected him to make that leap too soon.

Not saying that Luck is bad...but Indy has played a crap schedule...they have not even played the Texans yet...and probably wont have to becaue the Texans are primed to have the number one seed wrapped up.

The Colts will get exposed against NE or Texans or Ravens if they get to the playoffs. It is amazing how Indy gets the number one pick and gets a crap schedule and when we get the number one pick we get the hardest schedule last year.

I mentioned this earlier, how the hell do you not get scheduled to play a division opponent for the first time till week 13?? The scheduling over the past couple years has been bizarre. and it seems like it has favored everybody but us.

That's not possible. Every team plays 6 divisional games, so there is no way the first one could come in week 13.

Chuds playcalling has been horrible all season, i was literally begging at the tv screen to get out that shotgun formation on the second to last drive with 3 minutes left. We had time to work the ball all down the field and you make it painfully obvious to the defense to pin ears back and go get the QB when he is not under center and we rarely ever run any RB draw plays only read options. This hasnt been the offense at all we were running last year and its killed our season.McDermott, and Chud are position coaches at best. Rivera is not a head coach.

When he says "a divisional opponent" I think he specifically means the Texans, I don't think he means any divisional opponent at all.

This is Chud we are talking about. His version of a check down is usually a 20 yard out on the far side of the field.

Like I said, most of it is on Chud. But, on that last attempted drive, Cam had DWill wide open on the checkdown....but instead tried to force it down the field into double coverage.

There is a fine line with too many check downs and not enough check downs.

Clausen was check down king.....Cam never likes to check down.

He will continue to get better and will learn that taking the 3-4 yards they give you keeps the chains moving. It is just part of the maturation process that every QB has to go through....including Cam.
