I admit it, Luck is clutch

49 posts in this topic

He makes more mistakes as a rookie but when it matters most, he delivers!!!

This was the win I was looking for.

YES, YES, YES, Andrew Luck is clutch and has a short term memory!!!

I hate to go there, but I'll take Mr. Clutch over Mr. Stats all day.........everyday!

Edit: I don't mean Manning either

I'll take his mistakes. He will earn from them. Time will wear off those rough edges. What time will not do, is make a leader out of some Joe off the street. Games like today are what we chose a guy like him for.

Luck has been the most clutch QB so far this year.

I thought this game was over. Never count out the Colts.

The word I believe is ..... Euphoria.

Magnificent. He's a footballer, a leader and a winner. I'm still shaking. I thought the Packers game was awesome. This takes some beating. Don't forget, this was a team (Lions) who really should have beaten Houston. We are not far away in our rebuilding year. The future looks bright and it does not look orange.

What is he going to be like if we every get an o-line.....

That's what I'm saying!

I wonder why Arians does not do that enough. Is it because of too many rookies on the offense?

More often, at least. I thought the no huddle came about a quarter too late.

In the offseason one my predictions (and I don't make many that are detailed) was that in the next few years Luck would become the most clutch QB in the AFC.

He is on his way.

I feel like if we can keep the game semi close enough he can find a way to win. Might not happen but I have trust he can do it.

Problem is in a lot of road games the score has been too lopsided for us to do this. Today it was still doable even though it looked ominous.

I'm biting my tongue on the blatant baiting a few of you guys are up to out of respect for this little moment you're having, since you're wondering. It was a great last second come-from-behind drive but I'm sure I could say a few unpopular things about it if you really want to push it. ;)

Indeed I did, they just need to stay on the Redskins forum.

You won't be seeing me trolling the Redskins forum.

The Redskins forum cares far less about Luck than you guys do about Griffin. There are no threads dedicated to him (certainly not several per week) and people generally don't pay very much attention. Occasionally someone will mention how some of you guys act on this board but that's very, very rare and isn't something the overwhelming majority of fans pay attention to. Everyone over there is thrilled to death with Griffin but they would also have been thrilled to death if we had been able to draft Luck.

The handful of annoying Skins fans (many of whom seem reasonable enough to me but a scant few are not) who show up here to "troll" are effectively a product of some of the more asinine Colts-unrelated opinions held by a vocal minority of Colts fans on a very public forum. I'd honestly expect fans of any other team to do the same thing if you were to focus that level of attention on [insert hometown hero here].

Yes but unlike many posters, you are respectable. Unfortunately we have had a few major trollers on this forum in which my response was directed to.

At the same time if we choose RGiii I would've been happy about that also. I mean you really can't get worse than Collins, Painter and Orlavsky even though the ladder played kind of well.

I'm not discrediting RGiii at all, I think he's phenomenal and is the front runner of ROTY. However some RGiii fans come in here and act like Luck totally stinks it up when he's breaking records and getting this team back into playoff shape.

Colts are 8-4 and RGLeaf is stinking it up with a lousy 4-7 record.

Get away with you. Why are these guys on here? How do they know to come on here and defend Luck, if they haven't logged in? You are not a troll, but you defend these guys that pop up all over the place and stir up trouble....

Your almost nice words are said through gritted teeth. Some national headlines for our inaccurate game winner I'd expect over the next few days....

That said, I wouldn't be surprised if Griffin created some himself on MNF. As I rate him highly.

RG3...

"little moment" ... WHEN RG3 gets the multiple opportunities Luck has had this season we will see how many times RG3 makes it happen in those "little moments" ...

I think this makes 4 or 5 come from behinds in the last 2 minutes THIS SEASON. Andrew is CLUTCH, by the very definition in a sporting context. When RG3 has to throw the ball 40-50 times a game something tells me things won't be so easy for him.

but maybe it will? Thing is we haven't got to see it yet. With Luck you see it nearly every week.

And by teh way... It's mostly Redskin clowns starting these weekly comparison threads.

2-14 to 8-4.. quite a "little moment" aye...

It's asinine comments like that that bring the "trolls" out of the woodwork. To all those that want the Skins fans to stop posting, STOP POSTING ABOUT RG3. How freaking simple is that? You don't want them here? Then stop baiting them! Otherwise get used to it because this is a public forum with no registration restrictions so there is nothing stopping RG3 fans or fans of any other player/team from registering here to defend their team/player from *ic comments by some of the Colts fans here who laud the Colts organization for being as classy as it is yet seem to be incapable of showing any type of class of their own. Some of the Colts fans are every bit the trolls that they claim others to be.

That's fair. There's a certain amount of doublespeak that goes on that is frustrating, though. I can see you guys conceding on some points one moment then going right back to them to spite "those other guys". That's stooping to their level and it's kind of lame.

Heck, if you were more keen on proving them wrong about Luck than bypassing that entirely and taking completely unwarranted jabs at Griffin you'd see me bashing them, too. I already have done that, actually...

Get away with you. Why are these guys on here? How do they know to come on here and defend Luck, if they haven't logged in? You are not a troll, but you defend these guys that pop up all over the place and stir up trouble....

Anyone can read this forum if they so choose. Obviously some Redskins fans have been curious enough to either check out how you guys feel about Luck or keep up with the Colts since we don't get to see many of your games live and have not liked what they've found. I joined up before the draft just because it was interesting to get a different perspective on the top two prospects, I've stuck around because it's a pretty decent board with some very good posters.

Still, do you expect me to be more than almost nice all of the time when I see substantially more of these posts...

Nobody cares

... that aren't even factually accurate (seriously, you can't even get the team record right? how lazy are you?) than ones that allow me the opportunity to be complimentary of your team?

    • Thanks for your link above to such a fascinating article NCF. I keep coming back to something Shannon Sharpe always says on his new FS1 TV show called "Skip & Shannon"...Real meaningful social change always needs to make others uncomfortable in order to succeed & promote a large shift in daily society & Mr. Sharpe is exactly right. Nothing will change for the better without ruffling some feathers thru rebellion against the way things are. History has demonstrated this fact for decades & centuries. Relax, I'm not about to lead an angry mob with pitch forks & torches here.    The other thing I noticed is when the President of the Players Association said he reached out to Colin Kaep by phone for support I laughed because if the Niners released him tomorrow & Kaep wasn't in the league anymore, would Mr. Smith even care? I highly doubt it. We only care if that QB is on a football roster. The 49ers give him a platform to express his views globally. Take that access away & Colin virtually becomes irrelevant overnight as a celebrity with clout & a public figure of stature.    Bringing up boxer Mohammad Ali was fascinating too because he paid a heavy price for his views not to serve overseas in SE Asia, which pales in comparison to the minor heat Colin is enduring right now. It's not even close. 
    • These guys who kneel or sit for the anthem are PEACEFULLY protesting, they are not hurting a fly......It's MLK style protesting with nothing but being peaceful about it. They are not violent or hurting ANYONE directly. They are just expressing their personal views and some do care about those who are oppressed even if they themselves have money.   If you crack down on the players individuality too much down the road then you might as well call it the "National Fascist League."     Ratings may be down since a lot of late night games suck too. How many times this year have the Bears been on at night for example? And a lot of stars are out this year........and a few have retired like Manning who was a face of the league for so long. MNF this past week sucked with the Falcons destroying the Saints bad defense.   Brady is out for another week and I bet Pats games sky rocket in ratings with his return. JJ Watt is now out. Adrian Peterson is out. The list goes on.......   People get bored. And actually the peaceful protesting gives the NFL attention so in a way they should be thankful for it. If people don't watch since a few sit or kneel for the Anthem then I give up on those people and it just further proves the point of someone like Kaepernick. 
    • Problem here is most fans only see the te as pass catching.  They don't factor in blocking at all.     Check out gores to run and see where Allen took his dude
    • I wake up at 4:30 for work, so 4 more hours of sleep and eating breakfast during a Colts game sounds fanfreakingtastic to me!
    • JV....   It appears you're right.     I just surfed the net looking for information one way or the other.     And here is an interview with DeMaurice Smith the head of the NFLPA,  and in the interview he says there is nothing in the CBA giving the players a right to protest.       Interesting.    Directly contradicts what I heard.   But if Smith is saying it,  it has to be true.      I'll link the interview....   https://www.thenation.com/article/what-the-nfl-players-union-chief-has-to-say-about-colin-kaepernicks-protest/   For some unknown reason,  the website is not letting my cut and paste the quote...    something about formatting issue....    but the answer is the 2nd paragraph after the question about what would the union do to support the players.....            
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
