I understand he didn't call Cam a bust, but some people did after the Cardinals game. Boy wonder is even less impressive and some people are talking bust-in Canton.

The people in Canton are calling Luck a bust?

I like Luck, but he completes less than 60% of his passes. How is he a HOF candidate?

Not sure why people here still act like it's something new that individuals in the media think Luck can walk on water.


I'm frankly beyond sick of reading about him here. Once again, I suggest a filter for his name, so we no longer have to see it.

the panthers are on a seven game winning streak...get over it.


No, why the hell should we get over it. The game isn't until sunday and this is a legit issue to talk about.

The way its looking now the Colts could literally lose out, and not make the playoffs.

Yet the narritive stays the same .

Luck = Greastest Qb prospect since Elway. Last couple of games not his fault its everyone around him.

Cam = Thug. Everything including climate change is his fault.

In total espn hates to be wrong so they stick to there guns no matter what the outcome.

Kinda like cable news.

I can't remember a QB ever handed greatness on a platter like the media has done with Luck.

Narratives are hard to break due to egos in the media. Just see Luck and Cam.


I do like Luck as a prospect but the amount of bullshit excuses made for him when the same allowances aren't given to the other QBs in his class (or within the last couple years) is ridiculous...


I like Luck and I think he will be great but the very idea of him being in the "hof discussion" at this point is pure insanity.  there's no rational way you can classify those comments outside of that.

Yep, even with a healthy Reggie Wayne, he throws a game ending INT against the Dolphins at home, while Cam does the exact opposite against the exact same team in the exact same situation on the road-yet no one knows or mentions it-Luck(y) (to play in the AFC South) is HOF bound, no questions asked. It's laughable.

That article was just dumb. Very unscientific. Something I would expect a fan to write.


As far as Andrew Luck, I was watching him interviewed on the NFL Network, Warren Sapp asks him a question about the Arizona Cardinals and he starts talking about himself. It was clear to me that he misunderstood the question and I kept thinking to myself "this is the Stanford genius everyone talks about". I do not have a Luck bias like all his defenders claim because of the Cam connection. But I have watched him play and he does some bat poo crazy things on a weekly basis. He is pretty good but right now, this Hall of Fame stuff is a myth. Old white guys in the media love the idea of a dorky white guy from Stanford that doesn't celebrate first downs and generally acts boring and old fashioned. They perpetuate this myth that Andrew Luck is a hall of famer and people believe it. He's a nice QB, but there is no telling if he will ever live up to the hype.
