Luck to Pro Bowl

30 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, lets make sure Andrew makes it to Hawaii this year (unless of course he's practicing for the Super Bowl). Here's the latest story from NFL.com.

http://www.nfl.com/probowl/story/0ap1000000109982/article/robert-griffin-iii-andrew-luck-among-pro-bowl-vote-leaders

Right now, he is the #3 QB for AFC with only our own Peyton and that Patriot guy ahead of him.

GO COLTS... and GO PRO BOWL Voters -- let's get Andrew's ticket punched.

I don't think he'll have a problem in the world being selected.

But I'll help do my part.

:facepalm: Arian Foster with more votes than AP :facepalm:

It's just proof of the incompetence of regular people voting.

Like Michael Oher and Jeff Saturday and Patrick Willis over Navorro Bowman and John Kuhn over Henry Hynoski and Haloti Ngata over Geno Atkins and Victor Crus over Calvin Johnson and Ed Reed over Jairus Byrd and Matt Kalil over Trent Williams/Joe Staley and Charles Woodson......

Yeah, fans are dumb. Instead of having the Pro-Bowl to recognize the best players, they should have different divisions of All-Pro teams: The First and Second Team All-Pros, All-Conference Teams, and All-Division Teams.

They are in two different conferences. Irrelevant

No, it's not. It's true that AP can't get knocked out, but he is twice the player Arian is, and deserves way more votes.

He only has a 16,000 vote lead over Big Ben, everybody get out and vote because I'm sure the Pittsburgh faithful will be doing the same.

Luck over Schaub? I don't know about that.

Yeah Schaub deserves it, very underrated

Schaub is overrated, it's easy to throw the ball with the best D and running game and a Top 5 WR in the AFC

I'd bet Manning or Brady will either be in the Super Bowl or stay home if they lose before that, so Luck should make it. But Schaub deserves a nod over Luck.

Now if the Colts sweep Hou and win the division, Luck should get in over him.

Honestly, it shows you how the fan Pro Bowl voting is a joke. Guys get voted just by name recognition. I love Luck to death and think he will be an elite QB for the next 15 years. But do I think this year he is a better QB than Matt Schaub and what Schaub has done? No. Do I think RG3 is better than Matt Ryan? No. Problem is Schaub and Ryan aren't flashy players and therefore don't get votes. Jeff Saturday was honestly shot a couple years back. I am surprised he would make the Pro Bowl.

seems like just a popularity contest. I wish they had just the NFL players vote for pro bowl and make a rule that they can't vote for anyone on their own team.

are you forgetting Matt Schaub? 285 of 445, 3,294, 65%, 21 Tds, 10 INTs

Or Andy Dalton? 282 of 445, 3,186, 63%, 25 TDs, 14 INTs

Luck (18 TDs, 18 INTs, 55%) is better than those 4 yet

No he's not he's showing a link to a story with the votes on it and saying Luck is currently in third place.

He's encouraging Colts fans to vote for their QB nothing wrong with that on a Colts forum.

The Broncos and Ravens aren't good teams?  He did lead the Texans to a win over both and the Ravens game wasn't even close.

Overrated??

The guy is never mentioned in the top QB conversations...

And Luck doesn't deserve pro bowl.

    • Kelly, Clark, Green Projected As Top 2016 NFL Rookies
      I think they forgot Antonio Morrison. Together with Green will be on the Special Team. Antonio is instinctive and has a huge motor and plays with hit and run attitude. A good fit to the new "attack" scheme.
    • The reasons Osweiller chose Houston
      If you think Kubiak would have put in Manning if Brock was putting up 30+ points with no turnovers, I have some mountain property on the Florida coast I would like to sell you...  You go with the hot hand, even at the expense of a legend.  Ask Joe Montana about Steve Young.   You are right, none of us knows.  That's why we're on here giving our opinions... I didn't say money was the only reason, but the main reason.
    • Same ol TRich
      Yeah then he went to Cleveland and they broke him
    • Add 2 players to the Colts- 1 on offense and 1 on defense
      We're talking about adding players to the current Colts roster right?  Not building a team from scratch.  If we're building a team from scratch, Watt, Miller, Mack, Gronk, and Tyron Smith all day.  But let me point out something, I've noticed nobody has seriously said we should add Aaron Rodgers or Cam Newton or Tom Brady to the Colts roster.  Why? Because QB is not a position of need for this team.  We've got Luck at QB, so adding a QB doesn't really make sense, no matter how much better they are than Luck.  That's my argument against Watt, Gronk, Miller, and Tyron Smith.  We already have Anderson/Langford (not elite, but good) Dwayne Allen (not elite, but good), Mathis (less elite than before, but still good) and Castanzo (close to elite).  So, IMO, DE, OLB, TE, and T are not positions where we can improve the team the most.   (Side note, Martin played T in college, so he is not a "pure guard" but plays it so well, and at such a young age)   RG and CB2 are the biggest weaknesses on this team IMO.  Which means those two positions have the most room for improvement.  I think Martin is more of an improvement over Thornton than Tyron is over Castanzo or Gronk is over Allen.  I think Peters is more of an improvement over Robinson/Butler than Watt is over Langford/Anderson or Miller/Mack is over Mathis/Cole.   What did the last 3 SB winners have in common? A very good CB duo that helped the front seven be more effective.  Sherman and Browner, Revis and Browner, Talib and Harris.  Browner had a bad year in New Orleans, but helped win 2 SBs as a good CB2.   My opinion is horrible?

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
