Luck is too nice..

There was a segment on NFL channel just yesterday about how big hits have gotten so common, and the first clip was of Luck getting nailed right after releasing the ball... All he did was chuckle, pay the defender on the helmet, and say "wow, good hit, man."

That may be too nice, but my thought was I'd be enraged by that reaction if I was the defender. "Stop complimenting me and show me how much it hurt"

Killing 'em with kindness...

I love Gordon, he is my favorite still.

Even though he has been sucking ever since Johnson started winning championships.

Loved that brawl but I don't see Andrew being in the middle of a brawl, he would just say to the defender that he has a good hook.

It would be fun to see him throwing hands with Tom Brady..

Sigh...Just too nice....

Now that would be a fun fight to watch. Luck would win though, I think he is tougher than Brady.

Great analogy! IMO, Gordon benefited from Nascar trying to usher in a "new" fanbase in the 90`s, hasn`t done squat since. Hope the Colts don`t resort to such antics and just beat the Pats fairly with hardnose football. The NFL has enough teams with dirty reputations.

All fun and games until someone gets killed. I'd think racers would know better. JMO.

Growing up in Indy it was all about the Indy 500 not the brickyard 400. If i have to watch "racing" I would much rather it be IRL than Nascar. To me IRL the courses seem so much more challenging and nascar is just a bunch of left turns. I just don't understand how its entertaining to watch Nascar.

Drag racing is definitely exciting to watch though, but not those funny-car types. I like Drag Racing where people have built their cars from wheels up, not companies investing millions.

hendickcar will not even put a road course in their so called 10 race chase format "wussies" showing they are all about the left turn, there is an awesome new road course Road America the fastest permanent road course in the world in Wisconsin and is 2 times better than both of the other road courses on the schedule combined and they won't add it to even the regular schedule, Nationwide races on it, the wussy big boys are terrified of it, freaking wussies!!!!!

Well I dont know about all the race car themes, I understand the meaning of the thread and I agree if we don't win Sunday when the games is over all the players on the Pats team should be saying wow I dont want to play them again. The one thing I can say about our team is our players have more heart then any other team I've seen this year and a no quit mentality either way I'm proud of the Colts, but a win on sunday is all I want for my birthday!!!!

A few points on this.

1. We so need to be very physical with the Pats. This isn't the same old Tampa 2 D from years past. Jam their guys at the line, stunt, get pressure on Brady and legally stick him when possible. Rattle him and he becomes pedestrian.

2. NASCAR ceases to exist to me once the first NFL game kicks off, why they run all the way to darn near Thanksgiving is a mystery to me. Which makes me think that Gordon incident was somewhat staged....so they could get more coverage on ESPN (don't know why, they shove it down your throat even during football season). It is time to shorten the season, stop going to every track twice, and get some new events. Their attendance is way down at a lot of venues, tighten up the schedule. Theatrics don't cut it, good racing does. But I am more of an IndyCar fan and they have REAL problems.

10 years down the road it will come out that Jimmie Johnson's car was on steroids and the championships will be vacated. :lol:

Too nice?? Caldwell and Dungy were too nice! Sometimes you just have to step on their jugulars. Andrew has the potential to develop the trait. I like to think it is in the works. He tackles harder than a lot of linebackers.

    • Yeah that can ruin a season. Rodgers is the best in the buz IMO
    • Wondering ;  Could the acquiring team agree to eat all or part of the dead cap as part of the trade?  If they have the space I don't see why not.  It's not like they have to resign Luck. 
    • This particular game may be the easiest one left on the schedule, so a win should be likely. However, the Jags are a better matchup against us than most people realize. Their defense is 100% legit now, it will make life very difficult for Brissett, he may not throw any tds Sunday. If we use Gore and Mack very effectively, use a 50/50 split along with passes sprinkled in, we can move the ball on the Jags. However, this will have to be done with laser like precision, which I don't trust the coaching staff to do. Fournette and Ivory will do well in the running and pass game, Bortles will look better than he really is, and the Jags will hold our offense to around 14 points IMO.   Jags 24 Colts 14
    • With you guys with your situation with Andrew Luck compared to our situation with Rodgers. Our season is over here too. Hope you guys get Luck back soon.
    • Hmmm...this is the kind of dangerous reasoning that will have Irsay giving Chuck Pagano another pass.  The team just isn't good enough yet? No...I would argue that talent wise this is a better team than last year. We have upgraded the defensive front and added younger and better talent in the secondary.  Offensively...We have been hit by injury.  Most notably Luck.  But we have added a capable back up QB who is competent enough to put this team in position to win games.  That is an upgrade over Tolzien. We have added a young playmaking running back with explosiveness in Mack. Our receivers are mainly the same but their production is falling off, perhaps it's due to Luck's absence and the process of adjusting to a new signal caller.  But essentially talent is there and in many ways this team has been upgraded over last year.  Chuck and this coaching staff must be held accountable when they consistently do not put this team in the best situation to play to their strengths and succeed.  Mack is being underutilized.  Last week was a joke.  He is one of the most explosive weapons on this offense outside of T.Y. and this staff needs to come up with creative ways of getting him on the field more.  Secondly, our secondary's strength is man coverage yet we consistently are playing lots of zone schemes which we are not good at...particularly in the second half while trying to protect leads. These coaches have to let this young defense play aggressively.  They will make some mistakes but they will also make big plays and at least keep their foot on the throttle.  When they do...we are in games.  When we shrink back we have second half collapses and so called choke jobs.  It is not just that the team is not good enough yet.  Our coaches need to play to our strengths more to give us a better chance at success.  We have lost two winnable games because of gutless coaching in my opinion...the Cardinals and Titans games were both winnable.  Offensively we turtled up.  Defensively we slacked off into zone.  This "not good enough" team could be 4-2 instead of 2-4 with better coaching decisions and second half adjustments.    You know I love ya New Colts but had to jump in with my take on this buddy.
