okay. it is a team game, I agree... but Luck doesn't exactly have a great defense behind him like The Golden Calf of Bristol did.
let's look at 4 of Luck's 4th quarter/OT winning TD drives...
vs GB, GB up 27 to 22, 4:30 left, drive took 4 minutes. 81 yards, 2 pt conversion.
vs TEN, overtime, Colts get possession first. 76 yards for a TD.
vs DET, DET up 33 to 28, 1:07 left. 1:07 drive, 76 yards.
vs KC, score tied 13-13, 10 min left in the 4th, 6 min drive, 73 yards
There were other drives that ended in FGs to win or preserve leads, and if those were the only ones he had then you'd have a point, but that is NOT the case. He had long fields on multiple occasions, with varying amounts of time on the clock, and he was able to drive his team down the field and help them win the game. yes it's a team game, and it's not like Luck was a 4th quarter god, but I think his game winning drives were very impressive for a rookie.
I am not saying Luck wasn't impressive for a rookie.....just that game winning drives in the QB conversation is muddy water. Lot more to it than some admit.
another example. Let's say Cam Newton gets the title of not being able to finish....it generally is all assumed to be a "Cam" issue. QBs often find themslves in the exact scenarios Cam has late....but got big plays from D or ST to seal the game. Cam in close games has remarkably gotten very little help.
That doesn't excuse Cam b/c there are some where he could of played better at points....but it is rather comical some of the games his team has lost over the course of two years. Many "winners" have done much less early on in their careers and earned much better media praise as they gladly had timely help from their team.
