I'm still trying to figure out what qualifies Luck out of a all these other QBs, to be seen as not only the "chosen QB" but the best "ever."

 

It clearly cannot be because he's white but it does seem to help because none of the black QBs are seen as "chosen." They may be talked about but they are not set apart.  It can't be because he goes to an Ivy League school because Standford isn't an Ivy League college. It's as elite as Notre Dame, Clausen and Culter's Alum but they aren't "chosen QBs." It can't be his QB mechanics because all I keep hearing from those who paint him as the God of QBs in the media, is how much the Colts need to help him. Something you don't hear much when it comes to QBs like Cam. It can't be his intellect because RG III has a much higher GPA than him and graduated from college with a degree in Political Science in three years. It can't be his college football skills because two years in a row other QBs, Cam and RG, were chosen over him for Heismans and other prestigious awards.

 

So what makes Luck so special that he's the media's "chosen qb?" He sits in the pocket. There are a lot of QBs who come out of college football trained pocket passers.

I could not have put it better. And this the reason I created this thread. I wanna know the answer to those questions. Until I do, I will keep updating it. If I'm not seeing it on the football field from Luck maybe some of supporters can give us an answer. Picture speads louder than word, for Christ's sake. As of right now, Luck is not even making NFL throws. That is pathetic. He is throwing 5 yard passes and once or twice a game he heaves it to Hilton to the left corner of the endzone safely where the ball either hit out of bound or he makes a spectacular catch to put on Sportscenter. In fact, watch the game, if you can, on Sunday against Denver, he is gonna attempt that exact throw again.

 

I know he has family lineage in the NFL but the way they're going about supporting him is kind of extreme. They're making a mockery out of the sport. The dude is not every physically gifted in anyway while playing a very violent sport and they're shoving that garbage in our face. Garbage like that is a disrespect to the truly gifted players like Calvin Johnson and AJ Green. This is pathetic and an embarrassment. And when that talentless fool fails I'm sure they gonna blame the OC and get him fired. Get your pop corn ready, sir!

And all the Luck failure will start this year by them missing the playoffs. You heard it here first.

I liked Luck in college - he came from my alma maters conference. And was there when I was in school. He appeared to be a QB beyond his years there. However he had great coaches there behind him. I definitely wanted to see him finding success in the NFL as I wish all players coming from the Pac12 (except for USC QB's). But, the NFL and media have sensationalized him to where it's nearly sickening. I cannot imagine what it would have been like if he was alone in that draft and RG3 wasn't there to take some of the spotlight away.

I think given the high expectations and the comparisons to Manning - make it a bad situation for him to sink or swim. And it certainly doesnt help his cause with the statements made by Jim Irsay. Ir-say-WHAT?

Am I the only one who think it's weird that not only did they bring his TE from college to play with him but also his OC. Sounds like somebody need lots of support to uphold the hype. That's some weird sh!t.

That Oliver Luck probably have some big time connect.

Do you know how awesome it is to follow the failure of an over-hyped, talentless, need to be protected, dink & dunk QB on live TV? Too bad I didn't get to follow linart, quinn, sanchez, schaub, alex smith, to name a few, but I will not miss this opportunity. It's only a matter of time before they start asking him to put the ball up against non-prevent defense during a game. Come out, come out Luck, wherever you're. Show us that arm talent everyone's talking about. Nobody wants to know how smart you're as this is not NASA. This where men hit men.


Congrats on setting a new low.

These are easily some of the stupidest posts ever seen on this board.

Right along with Luck is a great QB statement I've read countless times on this board.

Except that he actually is. Doubt you could recognize that though. Based on your posts, everything you know about actual football probably wouldn't fit on a post it note.

But hey, keep trying. Just keep in mind that no matter how many thousand words you write trying to convince people Luck is bad, he'll still be one of the best (arguably the very best) young QBs in the league and on his way to what will likely be a brilliant career.

Nothing you say will change that, mind you , but feel free to continue on this idiotic crusade :rolleyes:

If this were the 100 meter, Cam would leave Luck in the dust. Being that Newton have this freakishly long legs it takes a little longer to reach top speed. As you can see in this gif Cam starts to separate from him once he reaches top speed. Bolt has similar body type with Cam and he also starts too.


This is football, not track. Only the 40 time matters when it's gametime.

Still find it strange that some here can so passionately defend Luck, but when threads like this are about our QB, they're absent.

You might have a point here if the Colts played in a different division. Schaub is turning into Delhomme, Jacksonville is in full tank for Teddy mode. I guess you're insinuating that Tennessee gets it all figured out when Locker gets back?

Doubt there's that much thought put into it.

Frankly, I wouldn't bet on him even knowing what teams are in that division.
