Pat, but to be fair he has a LOT more practice as our ST coverage has always been terrible. (Although it seems a bit better this season)

Patty Mac, no question
When Bob Sanders executes a push up, he does not push himself up. He pushes the world down.
When Bob Sanders was 12, a cobra bit him in the leg. After 4 days of excruciating pain, the cobra died.
Tom Brady can throw a football pretty far. Bob Sanders can throw Tom Brady even farther.

We don't have a big enough sample size from Luck (and I'm hoping we never do). Pat is a great tackler, and one of the only punters willing to give up his body for the tackle.

Dang that is a tough question..

Mac and Andrew will str8 up lay someone out...

Luck could play FB or LB in the NFL I would go with him. Better all around athlete.

I'm just glad Luck was "smart" enough to realize that QB's make more money than FB's or LB'rs...

hehe

That is one of my all time favorite Colt highlights... Halloween night if I remember correctly..

Neon Deion got schooled by a punter.. the beginning of the end for the mighty Cowboys......

Lovely...

Manning watched a lot of Jeffy's tape i guess..

Both players next tackle will their first....

Not a contest. Luck lays 235# of whup butt, but Pat wraps up like a seasoned defender.

"Anyone a die harder fan? I will be there believing to the end. Who is with me?" Thread started by Steveeoaktree33 at 2:49 PM of the day the Colts executed the second largest comeback in NFL playoff history. Very few concurred.

Lol. We didn't have Pat then... Smith was still our punter, and AV was on kick off duty.

Patty Mac, he led the team in tackles last season if I remember correctly.

If you don't count, like, Baugh, maybe.

But seriously, in 3.5 seasons he already has more tackles than Lechler has had in 12.5, Moorman has had in 12.5, McBriar has had in 8.5, Scifres has had in 9.5, or Kluwe has had in 7.5.

Although it doesn't appear they have tackle stats from before 2001. So I can't give an accurate comparison with a guy like Hentrich.

If George just would have had a better attitude he would have been one of the all time greats.

Believe it or not his career TD to INT's are 154 to 113 .. that is FAR better than many QB's in the HOF...
Shame really...

Having a QB and P who are studs is a great thing...


But I don't even want to see the reaction on this board .................. if one gets hurt in the act.....

    Nothing is more gratifying than doing something for someone else. Brent and I had a long to do list today. Instead, we made an unplanned visit to the hospital. Nothing feeds the soul like helping others. Hang in there Prisha! You are loved!
