This is the truth, whether people are willing to admit or not. Props to you!!! :)

The elephant in the room......heh. *wipes sweat off forehead*

I think both are great fits with their current organizations. However it was always going to be easier to sell Luck to Colts fans. It's the TRUTH. And that win over Green Bay after the bye.....oh man that was huge. I almost felt like we had to get a win this year over an elite QB and we did, early. Like I felt as if Luck has to out duel one of the best out there this year to satisfy the masses to make them think he had it in him sadly.

Like, a lot of Colts fans flirted with the idea of drafting RG3 as if it was almost exciting and naughty in some ways. But, in the end still wanted Andrew and still mostly do. If Colts fans didn't have Andrew they would want Peyton. Heck many wanted BOTH or wanted Peyton regardless. A lot still root for both. God you saw the forums last year and this offseason. It was as if it was Peyton/Luck and the rest of the world after them. haha Actually has this changed? haha

And Andrew is really really good folks! He can be a boneheaded rookie at times but he is gonna be a good one IMO. Good kid.

Seems to be working out too. We got Luck and are doing fine. Redskins have RG3 and are doing fine. And Peyton is on a team who is a heavy favorite to win it all with a better D then he would have in Indy. Not to mention o line.

Yep. The NFC is still mighty strong that the windows of opportunity for the Redskins to break through for a SB appearance would be smaller, IMO, than the Colts in the AFC the next few years while RG3 and Luck are on their rookie contracts, IMO. After that, it is anybody's guess.

Can't really compare them until RG3 is playing behind a fragile Colts Offensive Line and in a Colts team that lost a lot of veterans and filled with rookies and formerly bench warmers. Don't get me wrong RG3 is a great rookie QB but he has totally different preconditions in Washington than Andrew in Indy. And we will see how he will perform in his second year. Cam Newton who is a similar QB type had a great rookie season too and now struggles in his second season. And yeah I know Luck can also struggle in his second season but he has a different QB style than RG3 or CN. They benefit a lot from their "suprise effect" but teams tend to find ways to contain them after some time. I'm still happy with Andrew and the decision to draft him over RG3. RG3 is playing great and spectacular and its fun to watch him but overall I think that AL12 will have a better career. He just needs a better supporting cast.

Not a troll post but lets be honest. The Colts are the better team, RG3 is the better QB. with RG3 the Colts would be a lot better. He knows how to protect the ball, doesn't throw pick 6's, is extremely accurate, very mobile and explosive, and has great arm strength. Thoughts?

Colts aren't better team. Just recall all the experts in media predicting 1-5 wins for us at best or racing for #1 draft pick again. We are doing well, but besides Luck Colts have less talent on both sides of the ball. Colts are a rebuilding team, and to be honest being in the race for wild card is a little bit unrealistic. 2-3 more free agency and draft seasons are needed to put talent around Luck and boost our depth chart. Even RGIII would struggle behind this O-line (we have problems with protecting our QB, no legs can compensate this shortcoming)

I think those "who is better" type threads makes no sense. Colts' and Skins are different teams, with different philosophy, different playing style, and at the different stage of team-building. Question, "who is better?" would be only valid after 10 years or so.

I'm kind of tired that one week Luck sets rookie record he is hyped to heavens by the media stating Colts are lucky, other week RG has an outstanding performance he is hyped up to heavens and Colts are bashed for not choosing him... Golly...

I don't know how much better we are if we are. Our D can't get turnovers to save their lives and we are dead last there.

And we are fortunate enough so far that Luck can take a beating at times. I am not sure a lot of QBs survive starting for this team this season......

My God, the Skins last year swept the Giants and nearly upset NE. I don't even want to hear it. This team was a garbage pail last year.

If you are so happy with your QB, why do you keep ragging on ours? You're happy with RG3, we're happy with Luck. Go away and enjoy you're losing record.

I hope Luck vs RG doesn't become a Bird vs Magic thing. I see that the execs at ESPN and NFL.com are pushing this. They are forcing so called experts to pick who they think is best. They are looking for the next Brady vs Peyton rivalry except this one has, unfortunately, racial overtones. It doesn't help the matter in that Indy is by majority white and Washington DC is predominately African American. But it sure looks where This Is heading.

I wouldn't be too upset with this becoming a Magic vs. Bird thing considering the 8 championships between them ;)

You again,,,,, or your type....RG3 fits the Washington system, long run Luck will bury anything RG3 does...RG3 will be on sidelines hurt and teams will learn to stop his college style game. Luck, like Manning and all the great QB's will just get better with time. instead of starting another thread saying nothing new, why don't you help us all and go shopping, spend that DC money and pump up the economy!

RG3 would have a difficult time behind our line, I believe. His offense relies on quick slants/screens too much and he still gets clobbered in the backfield. It's the same stuff he did at Baylor. Not to say he's a bad QB, just not the right choice for the Colts. When did the Dallas defense become such a pinnacle for QB success btw? lol

Luck will have equally impressive games and I think our record indicates we made the right choice.

You should also consider the long term view of these two kids. RG3 and the college read option plays are great and all, but it's only a matter of time before defenses figure it out. Cam Newton was doing the same thing to defenses last year...and not so much this year. Secondly, look how many hits RG3 took yesterday on top of how many he's already taken. Running the football is a big part of his game. They design plays around that ability. He won' last long in the league if he keeps taking all of those shots.

Luck's pocket presence is beyond impressive. He'll take off and run when he needs to, but that's after he's made all of his reads. When he does take off and run, he has the sense to slide. The passes Arians is asking Luck to make is much more difficult than the ones RG3 has to make. I'm perfectly content with Luck.

Actually, the Colts should have taken Tom Brady at 199 in the 2000 draft. They could have traded Manning, and they would still be one of the top teams in the NFL.

I've said it before and i'll repeat it. Robert is a fine QB. I'm not so sure he wouldn't be a Colt if Polian was still here, either. But Irsay had a different vision and blew up the FO, coaching staff, and over half the roster in one off season to begin the new creation. Luck was a cornerstone piece and we are fortunate to have him, even if Bob3 is quite awesome in his own right. But we would have had to completely revamp the coaches and players in a different direction to afford RG any success here.

Seeing our FO and coaches were in place for draft day, how could it go any other way? Now look at our 4 losses. 3 huge blowouts, to Bears, Jets, and Patriots. What does Robert bring to the table that would have taken those games back from the L column? And Luck took the lead late against the Jax Jags only to let a blown defense assignment give the game back to them.

Let 'Skins fan enjoy Bob, but Luck has performed as well for us as anyone could have and I'm quite pleased with who we are and what we have from ownership down to the practice squad players. In addition we'll keep getting better too. Go COLTS!

I've seen plenty of your line. They're definitely not good and Luck is certainly made to look worse by their play coupled with Arians' refusal to help him out via the playcalling.

Still... have you seen Griffin? He's been accurate in an almost otherworldly way, putting the ball on the mark even when off-balance and under extreme duress. He has a LOT of room to grow as a decision-maker, I believe, but his accuracy has stunned me.

I like your logical posts... and you're right. RG3 has really impressed me, and is playing some amazing football. Luck has had his struggles lately, but is also playing amazing footballs. The jury is still out on who is better... and we may never know. But I can tell you we won't know for a couple years.

Ironic that the OP posts two pro-Griffin, anti-Luck threads and then disappears. :thinking:

Anyhow, thread closed by popular demand.

    • Right now, maybe half of the top 15 (or so) interior defensive lineman are 6'1 or less and about 300 lbs or less and arm lenght of around 32 inches (Donald, Atkins, Casey, Daniels, Jarrett/Kyle Williams). Only Donald was a day one 1 pick or drafted in the first two rounds. Casey went in the 3rd round. No one else was picked in the top 100. I don't think there is an other position were so many top players share similar trait and most of them were picked late in the draft.   Are teams that afraid of having a small team that they automatically give worse grade for smaller defensive lineman? If Aaron Donald, for example, had Geno Atkins besides him instead of Michael Brockers, would that line be as effective as one would expect just from the player talent level upgrade from Brockers to Atkins or even worse? I mean, Brockers is a good player but Atkins is on another level. And individually these players are great but would they work as well together on the same line? Not sure if it's as much about the size itself as these players can use it to their advantage in quickness and leverage but maybe two dlineman with short arms would create some issues?   Just wondering why so many of them have fallen late in the draft. I understand that some teams want bigger, physical players (like BB, Parcells etc) but what about those teams that had already gotten steals later in the draft with small interior lineman would jump at the chance to select a player who had great tape and showed similar traits as their best defensive player. Like Grady Jarrett in 2015. Both the Bengals and Titans drafted a dlinemen in the 4th, Jarrett went with first pick in the 5th round Bengals pick was actually two picks before Jarrett was taken.   Though the Bengals did take Billings last year and he might be next to Atkins but he was another 4th round pick. And Titans did draft Mike Martin to be their nose tackle a year after taking Casey but he didn't pan out. And I maybe haven't looked at closely enough at bust/success rate for smaller defensive lineman so these guys could be sort of outliers and teams just missed on these guys for other reasons.    
    • Also for retrospect on this list: Dan Marino--Mark Clayton & Jim Kelly--Andre Reed were snubbed.  Can you think of others that should be on here in place of someone else?
    • http://newarena.com/nfl/ranked-the-top-24-qb-wr-duos-of-all-time/7/?amxt=fbdesktop2   11. Peyton Manning/Reggie Wayne: Indianapolis Colts   In the post Marvin Harrison era, Wayne took the torch as being Manning’s go-to target. During his 14-year career with the Colts, Wayne had eight seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He also managed to haul in 82 touchdowns during this time period. Manning’s resume has been chronicled ad nauseam. He is the all-time leader in passing yards (71,940), and is consistently mentioned as one of the best to ever throw a football in the history of the sport.   2. Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison: Indianapolis Colts   The respective skill-sets of Manning and Harrison worked perfectly with one another. Manning’s unbelievable timing on throws was predicated greatly by Harrison’s ability to separate in coverage. One of the best technical receivers in league history, Harrison’s route-running capabilities led him to become an 8-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time First-team All-Pro. He also led the league in receiving yards twice with Manning under center. 114 of Manning’s 539 touchdowns throws went to Harrison. This statistic is simply mind-boggling — and further validates a top-three standing.   ( Jerry Rice also got mentioned 2 times.  #3 with Steve Young, and #1 with Joe Montana.)
    • A passing league now. You could say the same of probably 10 other WRs in the league right now. Marv did it in a very different league.    Not taking away from it, he's a Pro Bowl player.
    • This is why you need a well rounded team.  No matter how good 1,2, or 5 players play, it takes an entire team to win games.  Every aspect of the team thrives or wither off the success AND failures of other aspects.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
