Your statement about Luck shows how much the media influences our thinking. U seriously believe that the Colts were as bad as the Panthers during Cam's first season?
Luck threw 627 times and Cam threw 517 rookie seasons but yet Cam was only a little bit behind in total pass yardage. Luck had Vick fuging Ballard, RG3 had a 1500 yard guy with AM in the backfield tell me again how RGbitch won ROY over Luck again? Luck was asked to do WAY more with LESS than any other rookie QB last year.
Hilton with Wayne certainly helped but he still had no run game and was asked to throw a ton every game that's the only way the Colts were winning any games, through the arm of Luck.
Of course the Colts were as bad as the Panthers Cams first season. Both had no defense. Cam had Olsen and Shockey at least and a good run game with d will and stew + the extreme effectiveness of his own legs and size.
Cam and Luck both came into shot situations, and Cam and Luck are both the reasons why the Panthers and Colts are back on the radar.
