Luck snubbed for Pro Bowl in favour of Schaub.

464 posts in this topic

Qwiz and Vance are gonna be loving this, I imagine almost everyone else will be very disappointed.

 

Speaking realistically, one of Manning, Brady and Schaub is surely headed to the Super Bowl so I'd certainly not be shocked to see Luck going, he's just missed the initial roster.

 

Reggie Wayne and Robert Mathis are both going.

It is a shame that Luck isn't going, and I don't think Schaub should be going, but it is what it is. The reason why I like Luck over Schaub is that Schaub is that type of QB that won't win you games, and he won't lose you games. Luck is the main reason why the Colts have won so many close games, and that's why I like him over Schaub.

 

However, it's great to see Reggie and Robert back.

Hopefully Schaub will be too busy in another Bowl. Still, impressive! I'm sure he is honored.

I'm not sure I would consider him snubbed. Three pretty good QBs made it in front of him.

Luck is officially first reserve, so when one of New England, Denver and Houston inevitably makes the Super Bowl, Luck will be in.

There's still a great chance that Luck makes it, he's the first alternative that would go if Manning, Brady, or Schaub get to the Super Bowl and there's a great chance of that

The game is not even watchable anymore. Is "watchable" a word ? For sure not but anyone that watches this game is either a monster fan or a dunsky. The last play I saw in a Pro Bowl was Dwight Freeney doing something that looked like a waltz with a left tackle. The ball was snapped , they engaged their arms and moved side to side ountil the whistle blew.

That's a great point. Does anyone even watch the Pro Bowl? Not worth getting riled up over.

I think every QB from both conferences was very deserving, but there were also a few from both conferences that got the short end of the stick, namely Luck and Drew Brees. 

 

As for RG3, while I think he is deverving I would have picked Brees over him.  Imagine if RG3 were not the media darling that he is?  i'm not discrediting him for the great season he has had, but there's a lot to be said about exposure, and RG3 has had a lot of it this season, and I believe that is one of the primary reasons he got in.

 

People will point at Luck's 18 INT's and RG3's 4 or 5 INT's, but Luck has thrown more passes, has less of a running game and a less dependable offensive line to depend on.  Luck is being asked to do more with less, and he is also being asked to run the entire playbook, and go through all of his progressions like a veteran QB would be asked to do.  RG3 is in a different situation.  He has a running back, and a decent offensive line.  The coaches are not asking him to run a full fledged Pro offense yet.  In fact I read an article that said the Redskins have adopted a system that using a lot of the same style that RG3 played in college, while mixing in some of the Shanahans concepts.

Until Cam came in the game. They wanted to hit him, and hit him good.

I agree. Jeff Saturday made the pro bowl, and he isn't even good enough to start on his own team anymore. That's all that needs to be said about this game lol.

Also, I'd be more upset if I was whoever got beat out by Ray Lewis at middle linebacker. I doubt it'd Freeman, but how on Earth does a guy who played 6 games this season make the Pro Bowl?

The pro bowl sucks... Last one I watched some of, was Mathis' first. And I was interested because it would be Dwight and Mathis together in the pro bowl for the first time... Pro bowl is boring and pointless anymore.

Because Andrew Luck will play all 16 games of his rookie season. Unlike somebody else.

What a joke.  Luck is so much better than Griffin.  Total racist nonsense especially those kids singing about Griffin at school.

 

And Schaub?  Another joke.

 

I hope Luck and the Colts DESTROY the lame Texans on Sunday.  

 

I'm pulling for ya.

Wilson is having a better season than Griffin and he didn't make it. Luck has set numerous records and is definitely in the playoffs. That is why it is a joke. Not to mention the Redskins won without Griffin.

Don't compare Luck and Griffin for the sake of the Pro Bowl. Griffin didn't make it over Luck, they're in different conferences. Luck not making it doesn't mean Griffin shouldn't have made it.

Before today only 1 rookie NFL QB in history, Dan Marino,  had ever made it to the original Pro Bowl roster. Not really a snub considering history.

 I didn't know missing one start made one incapable of being good enough for the Pro Bowl.

Doesn't bother me. Manning, Brady, and Schaub had better years and are better QBs right now. Luck will have his time. And btw, it is not a competition between RG3 and Luck. Don't buy in to a rivalry created by the media.

Sorry, but if a QB from some other team had almost a 1:1 TD:INT ration, and a 54% completion rate, no one here would be in favor of that QB making the Pro Bowl.

I'm sure the Colts & Luck, Schuab and the Texans are much more concerned about this Sunday and the playoffs anyways.

Browns aren't nearly as bad as their record suggests. I'm fine with the AFC choices, but Griffin was a popularity contest winner.

I thought that was the mantra here was: you are what your record says. At least it was when it was a convenient argument for Luck in the OROY race, but I suppose now that all the records of the rookie QBs are about the same, the argument is meaningless.

The Browns are just as pitiful as their record indicates. They beat the Chiefs. They beat the Ben-less Steelers. They beat the Raiders. Not world-beaters there.

Griffin beat Brees head-to-head and has been one of the most consistent quarterbacks all year long. He absolutely deserves his spot; remember that 0 TD 5 INT performance Brees put up against the Falcons? Right.

 He has been outstanding this year, and while popularity may play a part, I don't think it was the only factor. He has the wins unlike Brees this year, and I can't think of any other quarterbacks in the NFC that have played as electric as Griffin has this year.

ts. 

 

 

Wrong.

 

Their defense lost em that game.

 

As far as interceptions.

 

You don't have that many interceptions when you run most of the time and when you don't play half of your games because you're hurt.

    • I have to be honest, when inlooked at the list of name , at each position, that he kept on his roster, i really feel better about this team. i'm not making light of our injuries at all. But seriously:   Qb: if #12 goes down, does it matter? I worry about Our depth here rb: whether 4 or 5, interesting. If OL gives anything, this is a nice group OL: when you see the list, looks very promising (ignoring injuries of course).  te:above average wr: very interesting and promising group dl: very exciting possibilities lb: question mark in my eyes safety: if healthy, i like group cb: if healthy, this group could be special, imo. k/p:. We're good.    Is it just me, or does this look like a promising and exciting mix, overall.  Of course, i'm ignoring injuries, but still.
    • I hope for no injuries. We could lose 50-0 but if we come out with 0 serious injuries, that itself is a win.
    • I've always felt it should be cut to two games. The starters can play a majority of game one like they do game 3, then the second game for mostly backups like game 4 is.    At the very least it should be cut down to 3 games. Theres no reason to have 4 or 5 imo. Its risking more injuries, plus the common fan doesn't give a damn about 4 or 5 preseason games. 
    • Hi, Colts fans!    Our Indianapolis Colts conclude their 2016 preseason schedule, as they travel southeast down Interstate 74 to play their annual preseason game with the Cincinnati Bengals.  Tonight is both the Colts 23rd all-time preseason meeting with the Bengals, and 12th visit in Cincinnati for a scheduled preseason game.   Many players are on the bubble tonight to make the regular season roster, and after tonight's game, all NFL teams must cut at least 22 remaining players to meet the mandatory 53-man regular season roster for the 2016 NFL regular season.   Head Coach Chuck Pagano and his coaching staff, General Manager Ryan Grigson, the Colts pro and scouting departments, and perhaps even Colts owner Jim Irsay and his family, go through the annual and unpleasant decisions in personnel, and retaining the best players by position, that will become the 2016 Indianapolis Colts that take the field on opening Sunday, September 11.   Cincinnati though leads the all-time preseason series over Indianapolis entering tonight with 14 wins and 8 losses. Bengals are also in a three game preseason winning streak over our Colts, outscoring 71-23 in those three games.  Colts last preseason win over the Bengals was four years ago, when Indianapolis defeated Cincinnati by the score of 20-16 back on in the preseason finale back on August 30, 2012.   Highlights in that last preseason win over Cincinnati includes two touchdown runs in the second quarter, from 7 yards by Deji Karim, and 1 yard by Darren Evans, two PAT's by Adam Vinateiri, and a Chandler Harnish 42-yard touchdown pass to Dominique Jones.   Cincinnati may currently lead the preseason series 14-8, but more important for Indianapolis, the Colts lead both the all-time regular season series with 17 wins and 10 losses and 2 postseason series. Colts last two regular wins occured during their 2014 NFL season.  Colts defeated and shutout the Bengals 27-0 at LOS (the building) on October 19, and defeated the Bengals again in the rematch in their AFC Wild Card Playoff Game by the score of 26-7 on January 4, 2015, both games played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building).   NO injuries, and good luck to all the reserve and free agents that are trying to make the cut with both the Colts and the Bengals. GO COLTS!!!!!
    • Interesting. i kind of like the options and depth that gives us at BOTH rb and wr. is Bray elible for ps?  And does anyone here think Bray is noticeably better or higher upside than Rogers or Smith? i've liked the burst from Rogers, the twitchyness.  He kinda reminds me of Tereance Wilkens for some reason.  To me (small sample), Smith has looked smoother and more polished while Rogers looks like he can take it to house at any minute. Perhaps its was just the impact of that 1 big play he had. does anyone think we would look back and regret cutting Bray?  With new kickoffs, punt returners may be better on kick returns actually.
