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)

That tells you all you need to know about Skip Clueless right there.

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.

    • How bad was the 2013 offseason?
      Reading this recap really is frustrating when you consider the opportunities missed. The Werner pick was the killer, I remember that Dustin (correctly) at the time pointed out his lack of explosive athleticism, it does make you wonder why he was rated so highly on teams' boards. Laugh in hindsight if you will but there were mocks out there putting him in the top 5!    Holmes/Hughes/Thornton I'm a little more forgiving on as there was certainly potential there. Holmes never seemed to be 100% fit during his time here, but even then as Superman said, there was no competition really for the C job. Well aside from that dog and pony show of Grigson wanting Harrison to start...    Thornton could still be a success story, especially if the offseason fluff pieces about him slimming are credible I do think he could be very good in a more ZBS. Hughes had flashes but never lived up to his physical tools. That seems to be the overriding issue with this FO, taking players who have the physical tools but need coaching up... but we've been terrible at coaching players. Maybe that changes with the wholesale coaching changes. I do think this is the first season we get to see a true Pagano staff. There better be some improvement as we've taken players again this year that are raw and need refining (Green and Ridgeway IMO).    The FA moves I think are easy to criticise with the benefit of hindsight. Cherilus you can question given his knee condition and the amount paid to him. It smacks of a knee jerk move to try and throw money at the O-line to fix it. Same with Thomas, but I think we were very unlucky with his injuries. Again though when you look at RJF/Toler it's like we're trying to find talent through trial and error. Of course this isn't the case but it does make you question the quality of player evaluation.         
    • what happy to billings?
      Never saw this coming with Billings, like another poster said, it happens every draft. I admit that I was on the want Billings bandwagon. I will definitely keep a close eye on his play this season.   
    • Other teams drafts
      I think my assessment backs up my opinion that he has been mediocre. Posted some stats that don`t look like Pro bowl material, but I am smart enough to realize every QB that played in the 2016 PB was a replacement. 2015 22nd ranked passer with the best RB in the NFL. Enough said, good day sir!
    • Grading the current roster
      What are you talking about? He had the 4th highest made% in the league.
    • Grading the current roster
      Wow that's suprisingly accurate.
