Andrew Luck can't afford to fail.

Luck is mobile, though. An insanely good athlete for his size. We should stop hating on other young QB's and just support ours.

Good luck with that.

People would get more traction in their Luck bashing if they went after the real problem with him, the fact that he looks like he just walked out of Deliverance.

Luck to me is by far the best young QB in the NFL.

The psychology seems to be that if the media says a particular QB has the "necessary tools to be the next great QB," then we must blindly believe them. The same thing applies when they say a certain QB needs to "prove himself" and they set out to endlessly scrutinize him.  

 

Case in point Luck and Cam and how they are treated by both the media and fans and to some degree, the teams. Trent Richardson was well worked out during the Colts game last night but are those in the media putting the lost of the team on Luck? NOPE! They are putting the team lost on Richardson and the rest of the team. Luck gets some blame too but more in regards to the team "not stepping up to help him." Folks buy into the BS and simply repeat the nonsense.

 

But when the Panthers lose, not only is it Cam's fault but some folks, including the media, will justify their feelings by ignoring the team endless mistakes and simply focus on picking Cam's game play apart. They then go into the usual: "he has accuracy and footwork issues, and needs to improve" nonsense. You will never hear anyone both in the media or fans, saying Smitty or the Panthers need to step up and help Cam, like they do with Luck.

 

And Cam isn't the only QB. There are a lot of QBs in this league who are way more talented than Luck but are not the "Chosen QBs" so they have to make their teams look good, not the other way around, and they have to "prove themselves" under endless scrutiny.

Luck is very fast for a QB, only a tenth or so slower than Newton.

Actually, Luck's official 40 is 4.67. This is only fast by TE/OL standard. And Luck looks like he's having a hernia when he runs. How you get off the line can help lower your time in the 40, that's why a lot of players gets coaching.  Cam is smooth with it. He's very natural and quick twitch and can juke defenders. Did you see his run against LSU 3 years ago?

Whatever.

 

At the combine, lead footed or smooth and twitchy, they clocked the same time.

I don't like white people either.

That said, not sure if you saw last night but Luck can run and escape the pocket just as easily as Cam.

Don't lie to yourself. Cam is a fast twitch guy with juking ability. The guy makes people look silly.

On the football field it's night and day. Cam also have extremely long leg which makes his center of balance higher. That's important. Tedd Ginn have a similar feature.
