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.

    • 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.
