Wilson and RG3 both ahead of Cam this year in terms of football outsider metrics. which are very thorough and relevant.

we need to suck it up as fan base. we can go around the horn on stats and junk but if we don't win more than we lose, who gives a crap about stats.

So what?


So what is that nobody is saying about how hard Andrew Luck needs to work in the offseason to improve AS A PASSER.

They just assume it will happen... through osmosis, I guess?

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.

No. These two statements were never linked by anyone (except you, just now). Nobody ever said "60 is not good enough, he needs to improve as a passer" That is just stupid. Stop being stupid.

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 think you have sufficiently outed yourself as ignorant... try again tomorrow after you mull things over a bit.

He's a rookie QB. Most rookie QBs improve after their rookie year, so people assume Luck will improve

Stop letting the media influence your opinion of the guy

I wrote a goddamn quarterback metric. I work with ProFootballFocus. I know what goddamn good quarterbacking looks like. Andrew Luck was an average quarterback this year and is a distant third in the rookie race.

End of story, c-rolls. It's not butthurtedness, it's the goddamn truth.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
