Will Luck Run More in the Playoffs?

26 posts in this topic

Since everything is on the line in the playoffs and there is no tomorrow unless you win will Luck get the green light to run more? He has shown he can pick up some big yardage when he takes off.

Go Colts!!

Great question.  Since it's the playoffs, I think he should do WHATEVER it takes to win.  If that means a 25 yard scamper, then do it.

I think this is an example the "wholesale" changes that Luck said they wouldn't be making.

I dont know if this is a wholesale change necessarily...I think he may run more if the defense allows it....B'more is fairly slow but they did try to snap RG3's leg in half...hmmmm..nevermind that whole running thing

I think he should definitely run more. He is deceptively fast and we are going to need every weapon we have!

I hope not, it means the Oline has broken down and he's running for his life. As a designed runs go, save them for the redzone.

I'd like to see no huddle, dink and dunks and not allowing the defense to substitute. Age will play a factor. I know Ray Lewis is going to be back but he hasen't played in awhile and could be a liability. Keep there defense on the field as much as possible and limit the Possessions for the Ravens. Forcing Shane Falco to beat us rather than Ray Rice.

A few 12 men on the field penalties would be nice to get while they are trying to sub. (saw that last week vs. houston)

I've been waiting to see him tuck it and run all season. He has had success when he has done it, but it hasn't happened as much as I think it should. Whatever works Sunday and gets a W, I'll be stoked!

No huddle isn't going to be a feasible option in M&T Bank Stadium, unless the Colts take the crowd out of the game early on.

I wouldn't mind seeing him run it a little more, just to give the defense something else to worry about, it might opens things up a little.

Good question.. and one i have thought a lot about.    I personally HOPE....   INDY rolls out at Baltimore and runs some "read option"..  

 

It would totally throw BMore off guard right off the bat.    And Luck actually is the "prototypical"  read option QB.    A "Tebow" that can throw...     and you have Andrew Luck.   But AL had to do it the hard way.     Learn an NFL O and then execute it.

 

So why not flip the script on BMore?   Come out and run some read option?   I think it would be a smashing success.

 

But for some reason I don't think it will happen.

Actually Arians did not come close to utilizing Luck's running ability.     So that fact alone makes me think he may have some stuff up his sleeve.

 

Andrew Luck is the athletic equivalent to Cam Newton.     But Indy used him in a totally different way.     I hope Indy is progressive enough to think "like I do" ..    heeh.e..

Indy and Andrew L have been at their season best when they are running NO HUDDLE.    Noise is not a factor.     In fact this may be the surprise Colt fans want to see.....

I like it when Luck runs. Specifically I like it when he goes through all his reads, and decides to run forward through the pocket. He usually runs for a first down, or he will hit Avery or Allen on a crossing route. I love those kinds of plays because they extend drives.

That goes without saying...

 

I want Indy to come out and run some option...    Every other rookie QB is making a killing off of the league being slow to defend it.   This is the time to STRIKE. 

 

Luck can run and throw it ...      it would be EPIC

I really hope he doesn't have to run much in the playoffs. I think he is more dangerous with his arms than his legs.

Designed runs would work to perfection...     and yes...  A Luck is far more dangerous with his ARM than his legs...      I agree.

Ehh. The problem with that is, you're exposed to more Hits. RG3 & Wilson take hits on those option runs. Let's just stick to our Offense

My point is Luck is "Tebow" like... he is built to take it.....       

 

I don't want him to over a season but for ONE game....   to totally confuse the D..  heck ya....

 

 

Run it Bruce...        Luck is the toughest cat on Indy's team.   He can, could, and WOULD do it.

Nobodies legs are built to take the hit that Haloti Ngata gave to RGIII.

    • My reasoning for the poor matchup against the chiefs is that they can run time off the clock, alex smith can run the dinks and dunks vs us, and they have fast, shifty, receivers that can really make our defense suffer. It's like a better Jets offense and defense with a more aggressive pass rush. We may match up better this year with Anderson, Langford, and the O-Line, but until proven, it's a bad matchup to me. It's personal opinion, of course.
    • I agree with the bulk of what you said here except underperforming against the Chiefs. Yeah, I know Jamaal Charles is a top notch back & Justin Houston & Tamba Hali are great LBs but, QB Alex Smith is such an overrated wuss field general to me that I don't see the Chiefs as a post season juggernaut at all.    Everything else you said was 100% accurate though Jared.    "Great googley moogley" Snickers joke reference. The Chefs don't scare me 1 bit. 
    • Only road game vs Denver I would be surprised if we lost to a team that will struggle to put up points. That leaves all home games. We should win the home games. Davis is missed but we go 4/0   SD is a trap game right before the showdown w/Jags after the game last yr every Colt should have the Jags game circled.   If we were going out west diffrent story but. SD coming east for hopefully an early start we get them.   Stafford will test the secondary week 1. He shouldn't be forcing the ball as much with Megatron gone. We know he will still give the back end some chances. If they are really starting Decker at LT as the depth chart I saw indicates. I think Mathis has a big week 1. 
    • 9-7 and a division loss. No Vontae will cost us a game in the first month, either against the Broncos or the Jaguars. Demaryius Thomas was shut down by Vontae, now he's going to beat us up, Allen Robinson would of been shut down, now he'll have a field day. In high scoring games, they just got the extra edge they needed. As far as the playoffs go, the Colts match up poorly vs most of the playoff teams. They can beat the Ravens and Bengals, but they match up poorly vs the chiefs and steelers, and horrible vs the pats. Broncos are really a wash IMO, I'm not convinced we can beat them consistently. We'll face a bad matchup and lose the divisional matchup, and we could even lose to the Ravens or Bengals in a close matchup.
