I normally don't get involved in these things, and I respect you as a poster here, but serious question... what does it matter?
Have you ever went to the same lengths to defending our QB as you have the Luck detractors? Because I've seen you go page, after page, after page with people who might say "Luck sucks, he's terrible" etc. and - maybe I'm wrong here - but I don't remember the same sort of defense of Newton on your part, despite him outplaying Luck for 2 years now (3 if you count his rookie year... which blows Lucks out the water).
I like Luck, I'm not one of the detractors, in fact I think he's going to be a helluva QB... but this ridiculous amount of hype and praise for him just isn't warranted at this point, especially not when guys like Cam can mess up and play awful game (or hell, play a good game and still lose) and then people jump all over his poo. Every time the Colts lose every excuse in the book is made up for Luck... because apparently he's too good to lose for whatever reason.
I've watched the guy play plenty. He's good, but he's fuging overrated as all hell. Without question I would legitimately take Cam over him at this point, and I'm kind of glad that Luck blew us off and stayed in school for another year. Cam has so much more upside (IMO) it's ridiculous, and we all know by now work ethic isn't an issue for him, so we should see him tap into that potential more and more as time goes by.
ALL quarterbacks are overrated, Cam included. The hype machine makes them look like gods, but in reality they're all quite mortal.
But see, here's the fun of it, that people think these discussions "matter".
They don't, but to hear some on this board talk, you'd think media discussion of Luck and/or Newton was a life or death issue.
Me? What I post about on here flows from one simple criteria. That being "does it interest me or amuse me"? I'm not here on a mission. I'm here for diversion.
The guys on here who are obsessed with trying to tear down Luck - something which actually shows insecurity about Newton, not confidence - amused me for a while. Watching them go ape s--t was a wicked sort of fun, but it's played out now. Like I said, watching someone be dumb is only funny for a little while, and that's now past.
Like I said earlier, my favorite team is having a good year, better than they've had in a long time and way better than expected. Me? I'm loving it. But others can't seem to find full enjoyment in it because OMG SOMEONE SAID SOMETHING GOOD ABOUT ANDREW LUCK HOW DARE THEY DO THAT WE HAVE TO TEAR HIM DOWN OR CAM WILL SUFFER!!!
It was fun before, but now it's just kinda pathetic. And to anyone who wants to question my 'fanhood' on this topic, I'd suggest you get a life.
