Will Luck Run More in the Playoffs?

Recommended Posts

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 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!

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.....

 

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 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.

As long as he Protects himself, idc what he does

Just slide down to avoid the hits

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

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

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.

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 a feeling the Colts will struggle to sell out next year. Protests, concussions, off the field issues, and team relocations are turning people off from the NFL.   I’m jaded right now, and only watching the Colts games. I make sure none of the TVs in my house are on a channel of any NFL Game or NFL show. I used to watch the NFL Network religiously, but now I make sure it’s never on my TV, and I am thinking about dropping the channel. I would never miss the RedZone, but haven’t even turned it on in 3 weeks.   I am not breaking my perfect streak of watching Indianapolis Colts games, but the NFL isn’t going to see another dime from me, and I don’t care about any other games. 
    •   Remember there are offensive and defensive ROTY  awards. Malik Hooker still could have been a candidate, whether Kareem Hunt literally runs away with the offensive one.
    • It shows he can play and lets him get that hurdle out of the way and avoid a year longs rust from building up.     I also don’t think it’s the mentality of a punch drunk boxer, it’s a competitor who wants to play and help his teammates.  Now should the coaches let him play?  That’s a different story.     There is going to come a time when Luck is completely healthy and sitting him isn’t going to get him anymore healthy and playing him isn’t going to make him anymore exposed to an injury than anyother player is.  I get the impression from what Ballard has said about Luck they aren’t going to even entertain playing him until he reaches that point. So I think if does comeback it’s because he is healthy and sitting him isn’t going to help him anymore and they will want to knock the rust off, see what he has, give the fans hope for the future (yes that’s a factor), Show potential free agents he’s healthy, and let him get over the mental hurdle any athlete has after coming back from a major injury that he can still play and be alright.  Some of those matter a whole lot more than others but they are all reasons for him to play regardless of the record if he’s healthy.
    • If he is learning anything from being a lame human statute it is, "Never play  against Sacksonville again." Only a guy like Russell Wison is  going to avoid what just happened to Brissett 10 times.
    • He was shell shocked and banged up I think he should have been yanked.  He wasn’t learning anything standing back there while the Jags were teeing off.
