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.

I agree to an extent. Sometimes it is the lines fault, but he's had a plenty of bad throws too.

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?

    • Andre Smith, Cincinnati Guard
      I was watching the same games. Reitz isn't 100% to blame. He's a high quality backup that can come in and start on occasion which is why i said I wouldn't get rid of him. I'm frustrated by the lack of a Run game and i expect coach Pagano and Grigson to get it fixed. Louis sucks and I want him gone. Thorton & Reitz are both worth keeping. 
    • Scouting notes -- Pitt WR, Tyler Boyd
      Nice receiver with good college production as the primary weapon for a limited QB. Had a DUI last offseason when he was only 20 years old, received a year of probation as a first time offender. Reports have said that he had a BAC lower than .08, but because he was underage, he was charged anyway. Obviously a series of bad decisions led to the incident, but it doesn't seem like a major issue. He was suspended one game in 2015.    http://draftbreakdown.com/players/tyler-boyd/ http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/tyler-boyd-1.html   Size: Listed at about 6'2", 200 pounds. Kind of thin, but has a good frame that can easily support a little more muscle. Long arms and big hands. 3/5   Athleticism: Not impressive athletically. Doesn't have elite top end speed, isn't particularly quick in short area. Has some quickness, and definitely has good feet, which help him to shake defenders and create separation at times, and he comes out of his breaks cleanly and with good burst. There's a little bit of a 6th gear at times when he has the ball and room to run, but he's not a burner and rarely runs away from defenders. Good change of direction, good balance. Not a great leaper. 6/10, he has quick twitch characteristics   Hands: Strong hands, good catching ability, extends hands away from body to increase his catch radius in all directions, goes down to get low passes, and can snatch it out of the air, whether it's above him, behind him, whatever. Not consistent catching the ball when contested, and sometimes loses on plays that he should win because of a lack of aggression. 8/10   Routes: Good technical ability running routes, setting up defenders, getting off the line cleanly, positioning himself in short yardage situations, etc. Works zones well, seems to understand how to beat all different coverages. Good feet, patient route runner, keeps hands working in concert with legs, gives QB a clean target on slant routes. Has a feel for the ball when it's in the air, stacks defenders on go routes. Lines up all over the field and runs routes both ways, breaks well to the sideline and on comebacks and quick stop routes; defenders seem to respect him as a deep threat, so maybe I'm missing something on his speed. Either way, he's a smooth and polished route runner who will pick up more tricks with NFL coaching. 9/10 (Gif machine isn't working, so go to his Iowa cut-up and go to the 5:46 point and watch him take a defender apart.)   Physicality: Not very physical, either at the line of scrimmage or when the ball is in the air. Seems bothered by hands-y and aggressive DBs, especially if he doesn't beat them initially. Does a good job of maintaining position when the ball is in the air, but can let defenders come through him and ride him off the spot or out of bounds. Decent blocking ability, shows some violent hands at times, but not a road grader or even necessarily that competitive in blocking situations. I'd consider him a finesse player. Has the potential to be much more, given his size and frame. 5/10   Body control / adjustment ability: Always seems to be in control of his body, feet, hands, arms, hips. Patient runner, with and without the ball, keeps his feet under him, changes direction decisively and with burst, but not wildly. Positions well, keeps a good distance away from the sideline to give the QB room to throw it outside, didn't play with good QBs but seems like he'd be a great stop fade receiver. Shows ability to adjust well to the ball, comes back for underthrows, gets low to pluck the ball, can reach behind him to make acrobatic catches. Moderate beef is that he shows some passiveness on comeback plays rather than going to get the ball, sometimes allowing the defender to make a play that he's in better position for. 7.5/10   Elusiveness: Kind of covered already, but he has moves to make defenders miss and get separation from coverage. Not necessarily explosive, but has some wiggle. 6/10   Run blocking: Also covered in physicality, kind of underwhelming for his size, takes bad angles at times and sometimes takes plays off. Has the size and ability, just doesn't seem that dedicated. He's a high usage player, so he might be preserving energy or protecting himself. 2/5   Overall: 47.5/70, 68%, 2nd/3rd rounder, potential to move higher if he runs well at the Combine   Scheme fit: 5/5, no issues, could play inside and outside, and has some kick/punt return experience   Polished, experienced, technically sound player with proven production who has some upside as a technician, and if he's faster than I think he is then he can be a big time weapon in the NFL. Reminds me of a slightly smaller and less aggressive Jordan Matthews, of whom I was a big fan two years ago. Boyd doesn't have elite physical traits, but he can play right away for a team needing receiver help. He's not a first rounder, IMO, so I don't think his DUI is a major factor, but teams will obviously check him out. He's been a model citizen otherwise, from what I can see. I think he'll be a top 75 selection, maybe a top 50 selection.
    • Peyton Manning sex assault allegations
      This woman was paid on two different occasions on this matter. Once from the University for $300,000. and  another time from the Manning's. While this is only my opinion it is what it is. I think this lady took this as an opportunity to get some money not only once, but twice. I think if she were truly offended that money wouldn't have made her shut up and go away. $300,000. was a lot of money 22 years ago and what the Manning's paid was undisclosed. It was more than likely a pretty good sum I would think if the university forked out the $300,000. Funny how a lot of money changes on the severity of being offended.

      If we're talking about a CONTEST, as in more than one great performance (an actual competition), than tonight takes the cake. 
    • Peyton Manning sex assault allegations
      Ah, this again.   Fortunately this incedent was vetted with great detail over a decade ago.  The conclusion back then was that he had acted foolishly, not that he was a raving lunatic.
