What you don't understand is we're not "tearing down".

What we're doing is what every swingin' codsack in this forum demands any of us to be about Cam: be "real".

And the "real" story on Andrew Luck once you get the entire pantheon of the sports media's mouths off of his member is that he is AVERAGE.

THIS.

All we heard last offseason was how Cam needed to improve as a passer. Luck has virtually the same stats minus the rushing yds & tds, but with a much lower completion %(60 per to 54 per) and you hear none of that with him. It is just assumed he's going to improve. Why is that I wonder?
You even have people on here, and other places who concede and say Cam will never be a surgeon or such. Well based on Lucks stats this year, it's safe to assume Luck will never be that either.

....Luck went to the playoffs....hope the Panthers dont have to face him for anything that matters or it might get ugly....Dude is stellar.... end of story.

he is above average for a rookie QB, even if he was probably third among the top rookies this year overall, I wouldn't be surprised if he was the best of the bunch in a couple years.

awww

aren't these two cute?

Again. or the reading impaired. I'm not a Luck fan and would not take him over Cam for anything. I am just calling you idiots out. Apparently you want to tear something down just to feel a little better. Well I'm sorry to tell you that your psyche is flawed. You don't tear things down to feel better about yourself, you do better yourself and raise your game. What you simpletons need to grasp is that you, physically you as an individual have no control over what happens on the field and therefore trying to make yourselves feel better by tearing down a player on ANOTHER TEAM, team being something of which you are not a part of... is not necessary.

get a hobby
volunteer
join a church
join a club

you guys are wound too damn tight


No, asshole, you resorting to amateur psychological assessments because you're been thoroughly routed in your contention that Andrew Luck was anything but mediocre this year shows you don't know how to admit when you've been completely smoked.

Yes, Luck is an average QB. Which, since he is a rookie, is pretty fuging good

This. Your average rookie QB looks like hot garbage. Luck was somewhat better than that. But he was thoroughly outclassed by RG3 and Wilson this year, and was average among all QBs.

Last year when Cam had 21 passing TDs and 17 ints it was noted by all the "experts" that that was very weak and just a sign on how much he would need to improve AS A PASSER.

Oh, by the way, Cam's "low" 60% completion rate last year was ANOTHER sigh by all the "experts" about how much he needed to improve AS A PASSER.

Andrew Luck this year has had 23 passing TDs and 18 ints with a 54% completion rate and you and the "experts" can't seem to get off of his knob.


I'm not "on his knob". Cam is better but Luck is WAY better than you guys want to give him credit for.

I can watch other teams and appreciate their players without getting defensive about comparing them to our own players.

the last time the media ran with Cam needing to improve as a passer was the time frame between his national title and the final game of his rookie season (or before). If anyone even mentioned it in passing they can not be taken seriously and any intelligent person would have immediately discounted it.

Media parrots, msuh-brained as most of them are, rarely suggest that guys that end their rookie campaign at 60% and break rookie yardage records have to get better as if its life and death like you clowns are contending. Plenty will say they need to continue improving or stay on track (which is exactly what they said) but nobody will (and nobody did) say there needed to be improvement in the sense that he was condemned a bad passer.

I realize you guys, like most huddlers, are insecure adolescents who are not intelligent enough to handle when we lose and why and therefore lash out like a bunch of butt-hurt wolfpackers atttempting to tear others down because you simply cannot rise on you r own,so I am not surprised at much of this. I jsut have to call it what it is.... f-cking stupid.

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.




This...


Agreed

Heard them praising him a dozen times for standing tall in the pocket....only to see him sail balls all over the place over his WR's heads.

Not impressed
