Mr. Scot

Setting aside the "Newton vs Luck" stuff...

I honestly wouldnt mind luck or RG3 if the media didnt bash Cam all the time. The only thing i have against these guys is im jealous for Cam. Just think its unfair that so many people get the wrong impression of Cam just because ESPN wants to make his story to be out a certain way. It really irks me, thats my QB!!!

As good as advertised. Great quarterback, great person. He gets my vote for rookie of the year and a quick glance at MVP (i'd give that award to P Manning) Luck has earned a look imho

luck will have a shot at oroy, he's played well... but imo he is part of what is making this season special for them, not the reason it is so special...it's a great story how the team has rallied to win for Pagano... good luck to the Colts in the future.

Luck needs to cut down on his turnovers, and his completion % is horrible. He isn't "great" at the moment. Had a mediocre/average season. He's gonna be a good one, though. Just gotta get them turnovers down. I don't know about his accuracy, though. You can't teach that. Either you've got it or you don't. He doesn't have it.

accuracy can be coached to some degree at least. we've seen cam's accuracy improve significantly when our coaches were invested in working on his footwork.

luck's raw numbers look better because his attempts are sky-high. drop him down to 275-325 pass attempts and he's pretty damn pedestrian.

It's a good story, but Luck is taking some of the spotlight off some of the more deserving guys.

I want to see the Colts win a game and the Falcons go one and done.

Part two of that wish is more likely to happen than part one.

Russel Wilson or RG3 deserve rookie of the year. They have truly had outstanding seasons.

You could make an argument, for certain.

With that said, given the emotion surrounding the Colts season and the hype surrounding Andrew Luck, don't be surprised if he wins it.

Honestly, I could live with any of those three getting the nod.

    • This makes sense to a degree with one big BUT... It's clear we'll be changing up our offense quite a bit this season - both due to the need for "evolution" and because of all the new players on offense we have to integrate - especially CMC & Samuel.  So, Stew needs more reps than he would have needed last year just to get in a rhythm with the new guys... Otherwise what you write makes sense. 
    • Already admitted i was wrong saying that, what I meant to write was he never learned to do it in college and makes it much easier to fall back into old habits in the pros. Was going back and edit that before I posted the thread and just forgot. And yes, every QB is going to be inaccurate at times, Cam is more inaccurate than the other top ten QBs, He just is, that's not his game,  didn't see anyone complaining about in 15. He makes up for it in other ways. And, no offense meant, didn't see a whole lot of Cam blaming in your post, actually, didn't see any. It was all someone else's fault. Cam has more difficult throws than many QBs because he frequently passes up easy throws for more difficult ones.
