Dear media, please stop telling me Andrew Luck is good

234 posts in this topic

He might be someday. But right now he is a bottom half of the NFL QB. He has a limpdick for an arm, isn't all that accurate, holds the ball too long at times, and makes horrible decisions.

Some of that can be chalked up to being a rookie. Especially holding the ball and decision making are two things that every rookie goes through. But some of his short comings worries me long term. He is the third best rookie QB in the NFL and bottom half overall.

And before you tell me his record; he played perhaps the easiest schedule in the history of the NFL, the Colts caught some breaks, and he plays in the AFC. You can't hold those things against him, buy don't tell me his W/L record means he did something special. If the Colts are in the NFC I doubt they get to .500.

And just to get another ball rolling, if Cam Newton had the same type game the media would be all over him, for Luck they are falling over themselves to make excuses on his behalf.

Agreed. He's got talent, but he's not much different than he was in college: a coddled gunslinger that gets credit for his football IQ based on God knows what.

I will say this also at the risk of getting in trouble. If Luck wins OROY over Russell and RG3 then KT can rest his case.

Luck barely avoided a couple of pick 6's today, and he looked pretty much like he's looked all year. Very inconsistent.

I still expect him to be very good when all is said and done. But the media built this guy up to be something more than he is. He is a rookie. A rookie with lots of potential, but a rookie nonetheless.

Again, I think he'll be fine, but it will take a little time. He is only human, in spite of what we may have been told.

The way he calls the snap count drives me wild. It's like he's straining with a bowel movement.

Shallow observation, I know.

i'm not sure how much more butt hurt whining i can read.

Stating facts is not being butt hurt. He's overrated by the media. End of story.

    • WaPo isn't partners with the CIA. Amazon Web Services, which sells servers to thousands upon thousands of companies and websites, sold servers to the CIA. You can buy your own now right here. Does that make you partners with the WaPo? https://aws.amazon.com When Jimmy Dore says "600 million dollars is more than the Washington Post is even worth!" he's being a dumbass. The Washington Post didn't make the deal with the CIA so what they're worth is irrelevant. Amazon Web Services sold them servers, and they happen to have the same parent company as the Washington Post. The thing about Jimmy Dore is that he is absolutely utterly obsessed with Hillary Clinton. Like, utterly obsessed. Everything goes back to Hillary Clinton to him, and his obsession has morphed into skepticism of the Russian investigation, because he views it as an excuse for why Hillary lost. He can't accept the Russia stuff being true because if it's true then maybe Clinton didn't lose on merit. And so his skepticism of the Russia investigation has led him down the path of 'well the Deep State is conspiring against Trump' and 'the Deep State is the real true evil.' He fact-checks nothing. It's Alex Jones level poo.
    • Anyone who can equate any modern presidency at any moment in time with the embarrassment we see right now is off their gd rocker. What is really telling is that we now see that Trump can't just be casual.  He can't just talk it up with other peers.  He can't just chill the f*ck out. Seriously....people like this are weird as hell.   It's been obvious he's the head of a business but not a business savvy guy since the Apprentice.  I don't understand why we want the Sharknado meets 80s bad guy of Presidents.
