Dear Andrew Luck.....

35 posts in this topic

I know records aren't important, but they just keep happening. Now that you have the record for most come from behind wins by a rookie could you please engineer an early take the lead game and have a comfortable cushion going into the 4th quarter??

I'm not complaining as you are much more than I possibly could have imagined but my blood pressure is on a roller coaster watching the Colts this year.

If he did BA would just run us into the ground in the second half, pun intended.

Luck was horrible today. Along with the offensive line. That's the worst I've seen us play on Offense all year.

This was a trap game that the Colts won. I was nervous over this one yesterday/last night. Division rivals with nothing to lose (see us last year) are always dangerous.

Are the Colts really that good this soon to have a trap game against a division rival?

Only thing more horrible is this empty post...

Not sure but when you are riding high (like the Colts have been) and you are a young team in general a lot of these games can sneak up on you.

And TN already played us tough in TN.

I was less nervous heading into the Lions game, seriously. When this team is counted out I tend to relax more then when we are heavily favored by everyone.

The complaints in the middle of a 9-4 season are awesome. Gotta win with style points, right?

Andrew luck was sacked 4 times. Hurried 10. And knocked down 8 times in the first half.. Saying that luck played bad is on you if that's what you believe. The oline and the refs nearly lost this game. Luck played well considering the pressure he recieved. Yes, he shouldn't have thrown the pick six. But. It wasn't a pick six.

No QB can play well when d line is all up in your face somewhere right after the snap. If he does that with 3-4 seconds in a clean pocket... I'm in the boat with you. But not now. Let's give the kid a pass and wonder how he still pulls comeback wins out of the huge messes...

Luck was horrible BECAUSE of the offensive line

Funnily enough I never miss a Colts game. Even if its at 1:30am my time here in the UK...

Add that to the fact I was also in Houston day 1 last year to watch Kerry Collins.

Luck played badly today. Why? Because I have huge expectations with him because of how good he has been. I'm sure we are all allowed our opinion, and in mine I thought he was poor. ALONG with the O-Line.

How he pulls it all off? I'm not smart enough to say, but he has the knack of orchestrating a comeback like no other. He's a rookie who gets it done that's all I know and I'm happy with that. Gotta consider what my blood pressure would be without him.

Luck had a good game. Not great. It's all relative to the opportunities he had. Perhaps he should not be affected by getting trampled under foot and just shrug that off like Tom Brady would. In his first season.

If you are going to ignore his experience levels, the game conditions, and still scoff at what he does to win games, then I can see where you feel he's not had a great game. I tend to factor this stuff in, when apparaising. So I can see why you may see things differently....

Please learn to just go down and not throw it to the opposition (even though he WAS down)...don't even try that throw! Oh, rookie....

I dont want to sound like a Luck apologist, because he made some bad decisions (he should have just taken the sack on the pick six) but the bad offensive performance was on the O-line and Arians playcalling in the 1st half to me.

I havnt seen more pathetic pass blocking in quite some time...especially from Olsen and Justice. I cant believe how often Olsen was beaten inside in this game and Justice was embarrassed quite often too.

Arians needs to calm down on all the 4 WR sets and constant passing when the O-line is clearly getting whipped upfront repeatedly.

I'm not denying that the Offensive line was the main cause, but like you pointed out its upto our Coach to put Luck & the Offense in a better situation. So yeah, il say Luck played bad... But it was because of the poor blocking and very predictable downfield play calling.

That being said, there were a few times that I thought Luck was playing too much on his heels, and not being aware of the pocket collapsing enough. There were a good few plays that he could have escaped out left or right but chose to get swallowed up the middle.

Looking back at my original post, yes it was our worst offensive performance this year, but we still ended up with a W & a very unexpected 9&4 record.

Bring on Houston!

Luck was meh today due to the Oline woes. He still did enough to pull out a win thanks in large part to our defense. The defense is what actually won this game for us in the 2nd half. Even in the midst of bad reffing...they did not fold. Feels good to be able to say that!

My posting was meant to be comical yes, and also positive about the results but I'm not sure what conclusion you made.....

I'm just glad we were able to put another 27 point game instead of being stuck at 21 points or less. I would have liked to have seen the offense put up all of those points, but I'll take it how we got it I suppose.

Luck played a ok game.

He definitely has a gunslinger mentality with his throws. I laughed when Fouts or the other announcer said," he throws better when somebody is in his face"

    • Woman has to know her place....
    • As far as I know, Eminem is the only rapper to list his favorite rappers in a song.   His top rappers are:   1.  Reggie  (His uncle) 2.  Jay-Z 3. Tupac 4.  Biggie 5.  Andre 3000 6.  Jada 7.  Kurupt 8.  Nas 9.  Eminem   Being last does not offend him, he made the list.   Either way, the spirit of God lives in us.
    • Very sad... He was a part of so many amazing tunes.   
    • I don't like anything about Frank Sinatra, tbh.    His music was before my time, but I enjoy a lot of other music and film from that era. I'm from the Midwest and it's hard for me to relate to those songs. They all seem to have a New York/Vegas feel to them (and not in a good, Sonic Youth way). A lot of it seems... insincere, for lack of a better word. I kind of compare it to today's teen bop bubble gum type music where the personality and public persona and "coolness" factor of the artist are as important as the actual music. However, like I said, I wasn't alive at the time to know whether that is the case or not.   Maybe I just don't get it (like many people don't get rap or jazz) but what Sinatra did doesn't sound like singing to me. He didn't seem to have any vocal range. He didn't play instruments (that I know of) or dance. It's really bewildering to me that he is such a cultural icon.    His persona is grating, to me. I never like performers whose image is rich/smooth/connected. Just not my cup of tea.    It also seems to me that Sinatra wasn't that great of a guy, either. I know that there is a culture gap between his generation and mine, so I won't judge him too harshly about what his social views were w/ regard to race and gender equality, but his coziness with organized crime figures ( ie murderers) is troubling.   All of this is just my opinion, of course. I'm not a Frank Sinatra expert, by any means. He just appears, to me, as the antithesis of everything that I enjoy about art.   He's on my short list (along with Gene Simmons, Andy Warhol, L. Ron Hubbard, Ronald Reagan) of sainted cultural icons who didn't actually contribute anything of value to their respective fields. Again, jmo... your definition of value might differ from mine. 
    • Not to mean this in an argumentative way but the changes in the Colts winning ways was started by Harbaugh. We were one play from reaching the super bowl against the Steelers. Take away the illegal TD that Stewart caught and that game may have had a different turn out.
  • Welcome New Members

    •   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!
