Ohio Colt

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 no help at all.

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?

    • Where were you last season?
    • Im not really sure what I personally categorize a slow start. I think it depends on the game. A 5 minute, 10+ play drive that ends in a missed FG vs Denver isnt as concerning as a 3 and out vs New Orleans. Putting up yards and keeping up Time of Possession early are typically signs of success later in the game.     That being said, our lack of opening drive points over the last few seasons was more concerning than I originally thought. But looking at all the results after that story I posted, we put up points in our opening drive in half of our games for the rest of the year. Hopefully that is the beginning of the end for all the slow start talk.  
    • Remember Irsay and Grigsons initial conversation while interviewing Pagano?  That players would run through a wall for him.  We believe That is the main basis on which they hired him and Irsay still obviously values this skill set.  It was never said he was or was going to be Nicolaj Tesla (sp).   Skip to what Ballard said after meeting with Pagano.  He actually said Pagano was smart.  Did anybody else catch that?  He didn't have to use that word but he did.  His reputation is as a straight shooter, so maybe there is more to our coach than meets the eye.  Or his country manners are so that he is overly polite. Main thing is that he will be our coach and the 2 of them are on the same page and we have a great defensive and RB draft class ahead.  I'm excited.
    • Pagano will never win a Super Bowl in this league. He's just not built for that stuff.
    • Mmmm. This would not be my definition. The score at the end of the first quarter would be more realistic. But all pretty academic really, it's the score at the end of the forth quarter that matters!
