Luck Getting Love.

53 posts in this topic

Enjoying my morning after a successful Colts Sunday. Watching ESPN 1&2. Andrew is getting love today lol.

I'm very happy to see him getting respect in his rookie year. And I know praise is fleeting if you start losing, but at this very moment Andrew is killing it :)

I never would have thought at the beginning of the year I would see a sportcenter topic, "Most valuable to their team Luck or Manning" and then actually hear Jaws say Luck. Because he brought stability back to our franchise.

Put a smile on my face. :)

And this same media will be the first ones critcizing him if the Colts tank the rest of the season lol. I tend to ignore the media because they change their colors very quickly, but good for 12. :thmup:

Skip Bayless is saying the Colt's still made the wrong decision at qb. He is also still saying that Luck is not even close to RG3's level.........Skip is an *!

Skip still thinks Tebow is an elite QB in the NFL! Skip is clueless! RGIII will be lucky to be in the league for 8 to 10 years.

I think any rookie would be lucky to be in the league that long.

I can't stand to hear skips voice let alone his opinion. I change the channel the minute I hear/see skip Bayless. Same goes with Stephen a. Smith as well. Rarely anything of value to hear from these two.

Being the UK I'm saved direct exposure to Skip, but everything I've ever had the misfortune to see where he's commenting on the Colts he's very down on the team and on Luck in specific. Rather than reactively giving his opinion he seems to think by pro actively giving his views they will become fact.

Of course he may well prove to be right and Luck is just a naughty boy not the messiah like we all hope :hide:

Skip Bayless loves Griffin

Skip Bayless hates Luck

Skip Bayless loves Tebow.

I'd rather stay away from QBs Skip approves of!

(this is a joke by the way, I'm not a Griffin hater, I think he's very good too. But Tebow blows)

Personnaly I'm happy that Luck isn1t a media darling, and isn't raised to a piedesta, it is easy to fell off from there.

Besides Luck doesn't care those things. He is practicing to get better, he is focused on football.

I don't put that much into what Bayless says in settings like that. It's set up to where one person has to argue a PRO position, and the other a CON position regardless of how they really feel about the issue. Those are probably not even Bayless true feelings on the issue.

Did you hear how NFL network was talking about RG3 yesterday? After week 1 RG3 was supposed to be the best ever, then he became Vince Young, and now they say the skins just suck and he is making poor decisions. Flip flops like a politician lol

Exactly. They are not to be trusted, they seem to like to get people riled up and make big, dramatic things out of nothing. Even at the expense of facts and common sense...

people that wish we still had Manning just have no Clue about who would be on this roster now.

A washed up NO BLOCK Dallas.

Mini - Brackett

Addai

Becau$e of PayaTONS big salary, little ability for all these free Agents and roster moves that did happen.

Skippy talks about the "Best Chance" to go to a Super Bowl with Manning.

Sorry folks, they would have done well to be .500 last season with that WEAK Roster, and the same this year.

Manning was ONE & DONE 7 out of 11 times in the Playoffs with Many very good Rosters.

lmao that he would be a real SB contender anytime soon with the CAP Strapped team we could put on the field. Not even CLOSE. A JOKE!

RG3 is injured again from what I read (ribs). He is taking too many hits for someone who is so light in the pants. He will eventually be humbled as we are seeing with Cam Newton. Luck was already humble so he gets to skip that part of growing up.

Remember..Skip picked Ozzie Guillen and the Marlins to win the World Series back in March...

How does the song go?

If stupid thoughts..meant world accalim...

....then everyone would now his name..

He'd be a legend...in his mind...

Skip says those things to rile people up.

It creates reactions and that gets people to tune into the show.

Honestly the guy is a genius for doing what he does because without him it would be a crap shoot of a show

Yep. Also have to wonder if they could have fit Reggie in there as well. Something would have had to happen with Freeney as well i think. There were going to be some key guys not here either way.

yea the media attacks whether you are doing bad or good. Another good example is at the beginning of the year they kept talking about manning and his lack of arm strength and now some are saying he's better than ever.

Exactly, both this and your post about Griffin are spot on. They are quick to hop on the wagon but are just as quick to deny it. The one consistent thing that the media has unwavered on, it seems, is Tim Tebow. No matter how long he remains a back-up they will stand strong in their worship and support of him lol. Other than that, Manning, Rodgers, Cutler, everyone comes under fire and then...two weeks later...they are suddenly the best players in the world. I'd rather watch Lifetime than NFL Network or ESPN sometimes haha And that's saying something.

This was suppose to be a celebratory thread. Congratulating the Colts and Luck for getting recognition from the very people that wrote them off.

Everyone knows the media is fickle, but doesn't mean we shouldn't enjoy it while they like us.

Thank you, I appreciate your admiration. I see you are making strides in getting over the troll syndrome. I suggest you don't continue, or you are going to ruin a perfectly good thread. The mods wouldn't like that very much.

Well, you succeed in turning this into a media hate thread with your first post. But, *I* apologize for *MY* trollish actions.

    • Sign WR James Jones - It makes too much sense.
      Jones is slow and struggles to get seperation. That's why he didn't have a team last September when the Pack signed him off the street. He seems like a good guy but I don't think we need him here.   We will only keep 5 or 6 WR's. We know barring injury Hilton Moncrief and Dorsett are on the 53 man. I think we can pencil Bray in because of his KR duties. He may slide to 5th on the WR depth chart but I think he finds his way on the roster. That would leave us with 1 maybe 2 roster spots.   We have guys that can fill those spots in camp. Brian Tyms is the guy I think has a real shot 6'3 205lbs. This will be his 4th year in the league. He had a huge 2014 preason looked like a break out player. I stashed him on my fantasy league roster. Then he was hit with a 4 game suspension to start the season he didn't see a lot of chances on offense after that but was a good gunner on ST's. One of reasons I think he has an inside track. He missed all last season with an injury.    We have a lot of talent that we brought in as UDFA's. I really like Tevaun Smith from Iowa. After his pro day I was surprised he went udrafted. 6'1 208lbs catches anything close. He ran the 40 in 4.38. He had a 38-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump.short shuttle in 4.26 seconds and the three-cone in 6.72 seconds   We also have McKay 6'5 kid from Cinn.  A sleeper i will be watching is Leak from Maryland, Rodgers Gramblimg is intersting. Then we signed Stangby back in Jan. If we decide we need WR help It should not be hard to find. We could have signed Hartline or Jones this week. I'd take Hartline of the two.   The TE panic I really don't get I think we keep 3. The 2 TE sets are gone. We have a proven starter and back up in Allen and Doyle. The camp battle for the 3rd spot between Swoope, Griswold, and Miller should be one of the best battles in camp this year. I predict Griswold takes it. We look good at TE from here. 
    • Training Camp Battle-MLB
      Irving is known for his run stopping ability and not his coverage skills... Losing 20lbs may help him in coverage, but he isnt known for that.
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      We can disagree. That's perfectly fine obviously but I'd still like to know why you disagree with anything I said regarding my first two paragraphs. I mean its a fact that O Linemen who have had bad combines have went on to have great careers. What will help in Clarks transition is if he shows the ability to process information and translate that to the football field more than any combine numbers will (For the record I was specifically speaking of most of the drills with the exception of bench press and position drills NOT everything else that goes into it like interviews and med checks. That would be absurd to think that of course).   As to specifically his arm length.......That wont help him consistently enough unless he learns how to use them better. They certainly don't mean he has a higher upside or be a big factor on if he becomes good or great even. They will help him against the same quality of player he is currently which is really below average but not horrible(To be specific...against D Lineman that cant separate). But against quality D Linemen he will have a hard time regardless of arm length until he gets the fundamentals down
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Whenever I read stuff like your first two paragraphs I seriously wonder about how you process information......   Let's just say we'll have to agree to disagree........     because I don't want to get into it with you and crash the darn website!!      (Sigh.....)

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
