We have a much harder schedule than the creampuff of a schedule the Colts got. Luck will look very normal next year with tape on him and a tougher schedule.

I want to say that, but I don't know if I can. While the Colts will surely have a tougher schedule next season, Luck will have a year of experience and another off-season to improve. He'll definitely have to adjust to adjustments (something Cam is only JUST starting to get...or perhaps Cam is only JUST being allowed to deal with....) that defenses make based on the film they now have. I see Luck, RGIII, Cam, et al all progressing the same way. A few rough years, but once they finally "get it" and start just tweaking MINOR things in-game, they will be the new Brady/Manning/Manning/Roethlisberger/etc.

What I'm saying is, Luck may have a similar year next year, but I think he will eventually be a pretty good QB. I just think Cam and RGIII will be better, with RGIII having the biggest risk of lasting the least amount of time playing at the level of Cam and Luck due to taking a ton of hits at his size.

luck is better than cam because his team has more wins, much like trent dilfer is better than dan marino because he has more super bowl rings

yeah that team's going to get shredded next year, much like it did against the bears and the patriots

Yeah the Colts suck even though they are most likely headed to the playoffs.

But hey, our guys dance much better as your posts prove, we are more stylish by the clothing lines we put out and our QB is on faaaaaar more commercials than Luck. Luck could only do the caveman Geico commercials.

Now, you guys feel better?

i can hear the straw man rustling all the way across the internet.

i mean really is massively misrepresenting the actual content of the argument the only thing you can do here? i know there's no chance in hell you'd be willing to argue that any quarterback starting on this team could throw three picks and still have a chance at all of winning.

really let's duplicate the scenario: we've passed the two minute warning and the panthers defense has to force a stop against the opposition deep in their own territory to force a punt and give our offense the ball back. are you confident they can do it?

luck is better than cam because his team has more wins, much like trent dilfer is better than dan marino because he has more super bowl rings

dead serious i have witnessed people unironically make that argument.

Let me start by saying "fug Luck". He's good, don't get me wrong, but he just ISN'T great. He is not living up to the hype. Sure, maybe he'll get there. He is only a rookie, and from that perspective, he's playing really, really well. However, his completion percentage and QB rating are far from spectacular. He turns the ball over a lot (again, rookie, so we can give him a pass this season). But, he is good at reading a defense presnap and adjusting. He's just not THAT great to me, or at least, not as good as the hype. Cam's performance last year (and arguably this year) has been superior to Luck's. RGIII has CERTAINLY played better.

I'm sick of hearing about "Amazing Andrew". He had a comeback this week...that he put himself in and the rest of his team ALLOWED him to pull off. 3 INTs is hard on a defense, but they pulled through and kept it to a one score game late to allow the comeback. He is NOT in the running for ROTY. That goes to RGIII, undoubtedly. Maybe next year he'll improve, maybe he won't. I think he swill. But goddamn, I am sick to death of hearing about how "great" he is playing. He's not. He's playing really well for a rookie. That is all. Not a world-beater.

The team success is due to the team as a whole. Which goes to show how foolish it is to blame Cam for every team lost.

Luck ints is one away from Cam's rookie season, so why r the Colts 8-5 at this juncture and play off bound and the Panthers was 6-10 at the end of the season.

A weaker schedule and better leadership out of the QB position. You hear 0 issues with anybody on that team and Andrew Luck. They all have bought in.

Indy is ranked 22nd in total defense, the Panthers are 15th.

Indy 20th against the pass, Carolina 12th.

Indy 19th against the rush, Carolina 21st. 13 yard difference.

Carolina is 21 in points allowed, Indy 23.

So its not the defense....

Offense?

Indy is 8th in passing yards. Carolina is 17th.

Carolina 11th best rushing attack in the NFL. Indy is 22.

Indy 17th in points.

Carolina 22nd.

Indy is dead last in kickoff return average...

I could go on and on but rather than be able to give props to a player on another team, we will just pretend what he has done is unimpressive just because of how spoiled we were a year ago watching Cam.

Any QB who is 31st in Passer Rating, 33rd in Completion % and tied for lead in interceptions should never be considered for MVP, ROY. Period.
