not seeing it with my boy luck

Too sloppy, missing too many throws.

I like Luck, I know he'll be extraordinary... but he has not been all that good this season save about 2-3 games. He gets a huge free pass within the media. He needs to be a LOT better. Anyone who has read my posts knows I'm big on Luck both for now and in the future but I don't see what the experts are forcing themselves to see. He's not playing that good of football.

The guy is a rookie on a very non existent talented team. Wait until he gets a good group of players around him.. I believe the kid will flourish.

i think he will flourish as well. I'm not worried - just thought I would be more impressed to this point.

Very seldom do you see him throw without someone in his face,makes it tough for any QB.

Once he gets a line and his Tight-ends mature and he gets himself another well established WR opposite of Wayne.. The statistics will flourish.

Look at the things he has to do to extend the play. Not too many experienced QBs can do it. Our line stinks and we have a lot of drops.

He may not impress like RG3 but given what's around him, I'm really impressed.

He is getting killed...o line needs to step it up. But Andrew needs to clean up some things too. Today overall was not the best game, but they did enough to win.

Team already has as many, or more, wins than most thought and all the majority of this site does is complain. Shows a lot about people.

thats because they want him to have 4td games like griffen

1 thing I notice is he's getting hit a lot on longer throws. So it's hard to judge him. Luck's problem is RG3 is racking up crazy stats that he can't match. A lot of that is the offense and talent around Luck.

Not his best game for sure,but still came up with goods in several 3rd and long conversions. The O line was horribly exposed in parts again.

I love the kid personally.

If the mistakes he's had we're coming from a QB who's had multiple years in the league, then I would be concerned.

For his first 4 months in the NFL I think Luck is amazing, considering the talent around him! The sloppiness and things of thatnature can be corrected by our excellent coaching staff who wants to win as bad as we want them to win. Just relax, we amre a work in progress and it's better to work on things that's bad after a win then after a loss. I'm proud of our QB and this team!

Luck has been fine and will be fine.

The kid is basically our entire offense right now.

Our running game is better but still inconsistent. Our O-line is still pretty bad in pass protection and our WRs are really inconsistent. Alot of drops and we still really dont get alot of separation down the field. Luck is constantly threading the needle out there.

He's made some bad decisions but if he were pulling a Blaine Gabbert and not trying to make things happen this team would have a much worse record.

I think maybe you're expecting a little too much from a first year player that plays with..

1) A team that was 2-14 and cut many veterens.

2) A O line made up of mostly 2nd teamers from other teams.

3) A receiving corps of a 34 year old stud , 2 rookie TE's ( 1 out for multiple games) , a journey man little speedster and 2 smallish rookies.

4) A two headed RB duo , who are both ordinary.

So I think if Luck were on a better team , you would see less bad throws. Pretty tough when you have to throw 40 times (including many downfield throws) a game to WR's that are not getting seperation and do it behind a porous O line. I think you should be expecting a bad throw here and there.

He has won 4 more games than Manning in his first year already. And that guy turned out to be a bum.

Is that really Luck's "problem" ? RG3 is running a college style offense which doesn't have him throwing downfield into tight coverage.

.......and, do we really need these threads every week? Maybe some people are not expecting him to play like Tom, Aaron, Drew and Peyton every snap. It's getting a tad boring.

The O-line is terrible, Luck hardly ever gets a clean pocket to throw from, always having to move around just to get the pass off, which is not his fault,but after ten games of this it is starting to effect his game a little,making things a little sloppy.Because the O-line is so bad, the only thing I see that he could do better,is to use his checkdowns more and not always force the ball downfield,other than that, with this O-line there is not much more he can do.

Reminds me of the regular season of our super bowl run. Defense was shaky and our offense would run the ball a lot and games were tightly contested. We made adjustments in the playoffs and were off to the races. Maybe we get chapman, fleener and Davis back and we make a run this year. Not super bowl, but winning a playoff game would be sweet.

He's got work to do, but he's awesome on 3rd down and 2 minute situations- which happen to be the hardest situations for young QB's to excel in, along with TD's in the red zone. He's got 2 outta 3 right now. I'm betting he'll get the third aspect fixed before too long.

That he still has plenty of areas to improve upon and is already as good as he is....that's a terrifying prospect for the rest of the league. That's something we should be thrilled about, not concerned about.

I know you are a big Luck guy....OC.....but you're getting carried away...

20 of 37, 240 yards....1 TDs, 1 INT in a must-win game...Pretty good..not great but few would agree Luck is not playing well..

Andrew Luck is a rookie.......compare him to otehr rookie QBs and you'll see he's playing well.

Here we go with this so called "college style" offense again. Can someone please tell me the definition of a college style offense? This is a pro game with pro players. If a college style offense was so easy to run in the pros don't you think every team would be doing it and winning games?

    • I have to be honest, when inlooked at the list of name , at each position, that he kept on his roster, i really feel better about this team. i'm not making light of our injuries at all. But seriously:   Qb: if #12 goes down, does it matter? I worry about Our depth here rb: whether 4 or 5, interesting. If OL gives anything, this is a nice group OL: when you see the list, looks very promising (ignoring injuries of course).  te:above average wr: very interesting and promising group dl: very exciting possibilities lb: question mark in my eyes safety: if healthy, i like group cb: if healthy, this group could be special, imo. k/p:. We're good.    Is it just me, or does this look like a promising and exciting mix, overall.  Of course, i'm ignoring injuries, but still.
    • I hope for no injuries. We could lose 50-0 but if we come out with 0 serious injuries, that itself is a win.
    • I've always felt it should be cut to two games. The starters can play a majority of game one like they do game 3, then the second game for mostly backups like game 4 is.    At the very least it should be cut down to 3 games. Theres no reason to have 4 or 5 imo. Its risking more injuries, plus the common fan doesn't give a damn about 4 or 5 preseason games. 
    • Hi, Colts fans!    Our Indianapolis Colts conclude their 2016 preseason schedule, as they travel southeast down Interstate 74 to play their annual preseason game with the Cincinnati Bengals.  Tonight is both the Colts 23rd all-time preseason meeting with the Bengals, and 12th visit in Cincinnati for a scheduled preseason game.   Many players are on the bubble tonight to make the regular season roster, and after tonight's game, all NFL teams must cut at least 22 remaining players to meet the mandatory 53-man regular season roster for the 2016 NFL regular season.   Head Coach Chuck Pagano and his coaching staff, General Manager Ryan Grigson, the Colts pro and scouting departments, and perhaps even Colts owner Jim Irsay and his family, go through the annual and unpleasant decisions in personnel, and retaining the best players by position, that will become the 2016 Indianapolis Colts that take the field on opening Sunday, September 11.   Cincinnati though leads the all-time preseason series over Indianapolis entering tonight with 14 wins and 8 losses. Bengals are also in a three game preseason winning streak over our Colts, outscoring 71-23 in those three games.  Colts last preseason win over the Bengals was four years ago, when Indianapolis defeated Cincinnati by the score of 20-16 back on in the preseason finale back on August 30, 2012.   Highlights in that last preseason win over Cincinnati includes two touchdown runs in the second quarter, from 7 yards by Deji Karim, and 1 yard by Darren Evans, two PAT's by Adam Vinateiri, and a Chandler Harnish 42-yard touchdown pass to Dominique Jones.   Cincinnati may currently lead the preseason series 14-8, but more important for Indianapolis, the Colts lead both the all-time regular season series with 17 wins and 10 losses and 2 postseason series. Colts last two regular wins occured during their 2014 NFL season.  Colts defeated and shutout the Bengals 27-0 at LOS (the building) on October 19, and defeated the Bengals again in the rematch in their AFC Wild Card Playoff Game by the score of 26-7 on January 4, 2015, both games played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building).   NO injuries, and good luck to all the reserve and free agents that are trying to make the cut with both the Colts and the Bengals. GO COLTS!!!!!
    • Interesting. i kind of like the options and depth that gives us at BOTH rb and wr. is Bray elible for ps?  And does anyone here think Bray is noticeably better or higher upside than Rogers or Smith? i've liked the burst from Rogers, the twitchyness.  He kinda reminds me of Tereance Wilkens for some reason.  To me (small sample), Smith has looked smoother and more polished while Rogers looks like he can take it to house at any minute. Perhaps its was just the impact of that 1 big play he had. does anyone think we would look back and regret cutting Bray?  With new kickoffs, punt returners may be better on kick returns actually.
