Great points, in all your threads.
I would also add that stats only tell half the story. Luck has not only surpassed Peyton in numbers, he has also performed better in the playoffs. It took Manning a long time to be able to handle the pressure in the post season. And Luck already has a very respectable 3-3 record, including a legendary comeback performance, under his belt.
This kid was given an impossible task, and I would argue that no other QB, even Brady or Rodgers, could do any better than Andrew has with what he's been forced to work with.
He's been battered, under constant pressure, no running game (1 single 100 yard performance from a RB, HIS ENTIRE CAREER), constant 3rd and longs, average coaching, very young supporting cast on offense, average defense......AND he has managed to STILL throw less picks than Manning and have more post season success. That's beyond impressive to me.
People forget Manning had a pretty good OL (Glenn, Meadows, McKinney), good TEs (Dilger, Pollard) + Harrison & Faulk, FROM DAY 1.
People criticizing Andrew Luck are gonna be served some crow this year and I can't wait.
