Andrew has Mrs. Pagano yelling at him

10 posts in this topic

to get rid of the dang ball.

He is just so locked in staring at MOSTLY Reggie waiting for him to get open.

But he did look off on that perfect pass to T.Y.

That was a TEN baby. :-)

A GREAT TEAM Victory!!!

Just smiling, laughing, shaking my head.

Well they are right that's my biggest complaint about Luck he does hold the ball too long at times but that comes with being a rookie.  That's why I don't think EVERYTHING is on Arians when the offense doesn't work.  I think Luck doesn't like to give up on a play and sometimes that leads to even bigger mistakes.  I was rewatching the Colts/Packers highlights from NFL Turning point last night and they showed a play where Luck threw back across his body to Reggie in the endzone and was nearly picked off and he had a wide open Donald Brown underneath.  When he got to the sidelines they cut to Arians grabbing Luck and saying "never throw that pass again you had Donald wide open underneath if you dump it off to him he's down at the two and we are going to in to score rather than kicking this field goal."  I do think there is some truth to the idea Luck doesn't like to throw short and doesn't like to just throw the ball away.  With that said he's a rookie he'll learn :).

I totally agree with Gocolts8818. The reason why #12 is holding on the ball too long is because he is trying to make plays even if everyone is covered or the pressure comes, sometimes he forces it and it ends up with an INT, fumble or a sack. Even if he gets sacked he is trying to throw it to a blue shirt ;-)

I keep going back to a story Archie told about Peyton his rookie year.  He said he called Peyton after five games or so and said how's it going son?  And Peyton said "Dad no one is open!"  It takes time to figure out what is open in the NFL.  I think that's part of why Luck holds the ball too long and doesn't make the best decisions at times.  By the same token that's why I am not all that worried about it.  It's a rookie thing that I am fairly confident that Luck will grow out of.

This is about the only critique I have of Luck. Not bad for a rook :-)

I had to laugh when they said this on TV, but I agree. Mr. Luck also has this girl yelling at him via the TV to get rid of it! Or "Why did you throw that?!"

exactly right.......

....rookie QBs try to make big plays when the defense is giving you a 5-yard twinkie pass.

........sometimes you gotta take the Twinkie!!!

Yeah I think GoColts8818 is onto it...

 

Some have been harping on Arians regarding short routes but it appears that it is actually Andrew's growing pains.

 

It makes sense. He is used to "wide open" meaning something completely different. No doubt the seperation his receivers and TEs were getting at Stanford was considerably different than the seperation he sees in the NFL. And Reggie is probably the only guy that gets as clean as what he is used to. Add Reggie's dependable hands and you can see how Luck might get locked in.

 

He's learning. The team is growing. Here's to hoping Arians goes nowhere.

Good thread and I agree also with you guys.  Luck is not dumb, but that doesn't mean he can't be stubborn.  If Pagano is indeed the one who finally got Andrew to change this habit, then I am not surprised.  Pagano is a great communicator and leader.  I think we'll see going forward that he means even more to this team than Bruce Arians.  I would like to have them both though.

Decent analysis here that he doesn't like to throw the ball away, he just wants to make a play first.  The picks will drop dramatically when he matures as a quarterback.

    • Also Biggie... Can't think of a bad one he ever spit, although some of the songs had too much Puff Daddy for my taste... If Mace is on a track, I can't listen to it... Monotone, mumbly, awkwardly worded every time he raps.
    • Not sure they would be bigger then Dre he is a icon he even discovered Eminem. I haven't talked about him yet he is actually prolly my favorite modern rapper his flow is absolutely amazing 
    •     Can you imagine Biggie and Tupac enjoying the success of Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Snoop, and Chris Tucker?  They would be the same age as Dre and Snoop, and way more successful.  They could have been the most successful rappers to ever play the game, and retire as icons...   The music/movies that they could have collaborated on?  The coast-to-coast success they could have contributed to if they hadn't been gunned down?   I mean, they could have collaborated in music and movies if they had just buried the hatchet and squashed all that east/west bullcrap...    
    • I can't decide on this one.. For me, it's a toss up between Nas and Jay-Z... Both are absolute geniuses.   Kendrick Lamar will belong near the top of the list eventually.. He is amazing. Eminem has a legitimate claim to possibly having the smartest/most complex rhyme schemes and probably uses more literary convention with regard to poetical forms than all others. His rhymes on the 2nd Bad Meets Evil record (with Royce Da 5-9) should have been game-changers, but couldn't stop the mumble rap from taking over.   Twista might be the fastest, at least he's the fastest without having it overtake his flow. Bone Thugs have some incredibly quick verses.   I think Andre 3k should be included in the discussion. He has some borderline ridiculous verses, but many profound ones.    As far as old school guys, my personal preferences are KRS-1, Q-Tip, Jurrasic 5... Beasties have great jams , but not overly skilled lyricists...   Cube is the best battle rapper all time, imo, although Eminem and Common are both deadly as well   Edit: when I said "battle rapper" I should have said that he makes the best "dis tracks" battling is another scene... I think the consensus might be that Marshall Mathers is the best straight up battler

    •   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!
