I like the fact that he is big guy in the backfield.

 

Bounces off of smaller players but also can throw the ball with a defender around his ankles.

Psssh, Idris Elba is all the rage. Have you seen his biceps? :applause:  haha

 

This is one giant man, and one small leap for mankind, er I mean...

 

One small leap for mankind, and one giant step for man, hmm... :Nuke:

 

Ok lets try this again.

 

One huge mankind leap, for one small man. :facepalm:

 

One very big small step for mankind, one small big leap for man. :facepalm:

Its a legitimate question, I remember an announcer during a game Tebow was playing brought up his size in reference to his throwing motion and accuracy.

 

Personally I dont think that has any bearing on Lucks ability to be accurate or not but I think its a combination of things

 

1.O Line was just trash this year way more often then not

 

2.His throwing motion is a completely loose arm like its made of spaghetti, he appears to bring his shoulder back along with the rest of his arm and put his whole body into the throw but on the follow through he appears to release his elbow straightening his whole arm out which may cause the ball to sail on him high at times-In other other words-Long wind up contributes to his sailing of passes sometimes

 

3.He was rarely allowed to set his feet in the pocket

 

4.Had a tendency to hold the ball to long even when under alot of pressure, meaning he thought to much sometimes and tried to make the perfect throw every time, that may have contributed slightly as well

 

 

 

Thank you!Yes,that's basically what i'm refering to.What you stated is spot on,and i share the same feeling.

I have to agree he's just jacked. I don't think he's pudgy or anything like Hamburger for the Steelers. Lucks mechanics are fine, he was great in college and its not like he took a bunch of HGH and gained a ton of muscle mass since his last year, when transitioning to the NFL. Much of it has to do with pressure, lack of running game and the scheme faced with the fact that he was a rookie. I still thought he played exceptional however and there was an article stating how much better/accurate his throws were when he has time to plant correctly. That throw to Hilton in the Texans game was perfection at its finest so he can throw the ball up there with the best of them. I wouldn't worry to much about it.

I wouldn't look to much into people nit picking on your post. People always do that.

I get criticized because I poop my pants too much!!!!!! I pooped mah pants.

 

 

Yeah,you're right.Thanks.

Andrew Luck is built like an OX.  It's a good thing.  It's why he can take a hit and get back up (and that's not a shot at RG3) and it's part of the reason why he was the top overall pick.  If you were going to draw a QB up in a lab in terms of just physical talent other than maybe his arm you would come up with something very close to Andrew Luck.  He is super smart, he can run if needed, and he's built to take a hit.

This is a concern,since he couldn't seem to hit the broad side of a barn most of the year(54%).He has a similiar build to tebow/quinn and he's getting bigger(so it seems).It influences mechanics...period.

Couldnt hit the broadside of a barn?

Hard to complete 70% when youre throwing deep intermediate routes 80% of the time and running from D-lineman half the time dropping back.

Manning's ginormous head likely contributed to his chronic neck problems.  But Luck seems to be quite mobile, so it looks like his legs and feet can carry the load.  He should be fine.

 Quinn and Tebow are just bros who lift to look good in tight T-shirts.

Could this be a factor with his throwing motion/mechanics?I think it influences his accuracy,such as a similiar situation with quinn/tebow.

339 of 627 (NFL all-time record), 4,374 yards (NFL all-time record)

23 TDs...

I'd say..'no'

You aren't really that naive, are you?

 

You ever hear an expression "keeping up impressions"? 

 

Surrounding himself with beautiful woman doesn't take away from the obvious. ...and yes....I'm sayin what you think I'm sayin. I 'm not sayin it's a bad thing....but one has to wonder how 100,000 people have played in the NFL and nobody has ever come out while playing? Only 3 post retirement that I know of. 

 

The NFL is pure machismo......so such an announcement would be shocking to the culture. People have been documented having lived their entire lives as a lie because they cannot face the humiliation of coming out.

I think that it is obvious that Tim Tebow is a fair minded, soft spoken, devout Christian who also happens to be a virgin. Compared to the other NFL players it would appear that he is that way but I don't think so. If he was the guy is obviously comfortable enough with himself to come out about it, and I think he would have done so long ago, back when he was at the height of his popularity with the Gators. He would've been and still would be widely accepted because of his status. I don't get the vibe from him at all, he actually reminds me of myself sometimes, and I have had at least one person assume the same of me as well, which would be the furthest from the truth. Anywho...let's get back on topic hahaha.

Yes.

 Just because a guy isn't always with a girl, and having relations, doesn't make him gay. I know quite a few of my sorority sisters are virgins, and are waiting until marriage. A few of them are actually engaged now. Two of them are very strong Christians, much like Tebow. Just because people make choices doesn't mean they are trying to hide things.

I'd say he isn't big enough. He need to get to 237. I for one think Luck looks small and skinny

 

Ok, I don't know if your joking or not, but I always thought Luck looked small to me.  I was shocked when they said is was 6-4, 235.  I thought he was more like 6-2.

    • Especially after the previous drive ended in a fumble recovery for a touchdown and then we put the ball on the turf the first play of that last drive in the first half.
    • I think Marvin was the best route-runner in NFL history -- a big part of that was due to his very strong chemistry with Peyton.  I don't think any QB-WR duo will ever accomplish what those 2 did in terms of statistics or in terms the timing and awareness they had together.    I know of at least 2 top-tier DBs who played when Marvin was in the league (with Randy Moss, TO, and several other WRs who brought more attention to themselves for their antics than Marv did) who said Marv was the best they ever faced -- Charles 'Peanut' Tillman and Champ Bailey (probably the best DB in the NFL that had enough of a sample size against Marvin's class of WRs in their prime to make a solid judgement).     Just look at Marvin's NFL Records -- until OBJ comes close to doing anything like this, over this amount of time, I don't think people should be debating it:   NFL records -Most receptions in a single season with 143, set in 2002 -Most receptions in a 4 season period (469), 1999–2002; 5 season period (563), 1999–2003; 7 season period (731), 1999–2005; 8 season period (826), 1999–2006; 9 season period (885), 1998–2006; 10 season period (958), 1997–2006; 11 season period (1,022), 1996–2006 -Most receiving yards in a 4 season period (6,322), 1999–2002; 5 season period (7,594), 1999–2003 -Most games in a career with at least 8 receptions (51), 9 receptions (32), 11 receptions (12), 12 receptions (8) -Most consecutive games with at least 6 receptions (16) and 9 receptions (6) -Most consecutive seasons with at least 5 touchdowns (11) – shared with Jerry Rice, Don Hutson, Cris Carter, Tim Brown, Terrell Owens -Most consecutive seasons with at least 6 touchdowns (11) – shared with Terrell Owens, Jerry Rice, Don Hutson -Most consecutive seasons with at least 5 touchdown receptions (11) – shared with Jerry Rice, Don Hutson, Cris Carter, Tim Brown, Terrell Owens -Most consecutive seasons with at least 6 touchdown receptions (11) – shared with Jerry Rice, Don Hutson -Most consecutive seasons with at least 10 touchdown receptions (8) -Most consecutive seasons with at least 11 touchdown receptions (4)-tied with Lance Alworth, Art Powell -Most consecutive seasons with at least 14 touchdown receptions (2)-tied with Jerry Rice -Most Consecutive seasons with 1,400+ receiving yards (4); 1999–2002 -Most Consecutive seasons with 100+ receptions (4); 1999–2002 -Most Consecutive seasons with 82+ receptions (8); 1999–2006 -Most games in a single season (2002) with at least 6 receptions (15), 7 receptions (12), 8 receptions (12), 9 receptions (10), 11 receptions (5) -Most games in a season with at least 13 receptions (2) in 1999 – tied with several players - Marvin Harrison and Peyton Manning currently hold the record for most completions between a Wide Receiver and Quarterback with 953. - Marvin Harrison and Peyton Manning currently hold the NFL record for passing touchdowns between a WR and QB with 112. - Marvin Harrison and Peyton Manning currently hold the NFL record for passing yards between a WR and QB with 12,756. -Marvin Harrison and Peyton Manning currently hold the NFL record for completions in a season between a WR and QB with 143 in 2002. - First player to record 2 seasons of 1,600 yards receiving in NFL history, (1999 & 2002).

    • He'll be fine and I mean, he's going to be here the next 6 years.  There's no perfect QB and even the very good one's have droughts, bad games here and there, etc.  Nothing wrong with being frustrated with that, but it'd jsut be nice if people could accept players with their faults and understand that sometimes, things aren't going to be perfect all of the time.  Accepting it doesn't mean you approve of it.  But it would be nice if, after a bad week, we don't always start to question what type of QB Luck is.  I'm not accusing you of anything, you've always been level headed from my perspective.     Anyhow, at this point, he's a good QB, not much is going to change that between now and retirement, assuming something catastrophic doesn't happen like he gets shot buying groceries or injured into retirement.  Whether or not he'll ever be a great QB or better is a 15-20 year journey that we can't ever know the answer until it's obvious.  Right now it isn't because, as most people should understand, we're only 5 years into that 15-20 year career.  
    • I hope you're kidding on this, honestly.   OBJ came in as a rookie with a most-likely future HOF QB throwing to him.  Marvin came in with Jim Harbaugh, who although is one of my all-time favorite Colts, was not much more than a mediocre NFL QB.  Sure, Marv's rookie year he had Marshall Faulk (who rushed for a whopping 587 yards with a 3.0 average YPC) -- in fact, the Colts rushed for only 1,448 yards Marv's rookie year compared to the Giants who rushed for 1,603 total yards (in a more pass-heavy league, they had 2 guys who exceeded Marshall Faulk's rushing production if you compare side by side).  Marv's supporting WR cast his rookie year included the great Sean Dawkins, the amazing Aaron Bailey, and the very feared threat Brian Stablein.  He also had Ken Dilger (a very average NFL TE), and Marcus Pollard (who had a grand total of 6 receptions in 1996).  In total, as a rookie, Marv led the Colts in receiving yards and receptions, with Sean Dawkins and Faulk being the only 2 to have >50 receptions and Dilger being the only other to have >40 receptions and Lamont Warren as the only other to have >20 receptions.  In 1997 (Marv's second year), Sean Dawkins was the only other Colt to have >50 receptions, and Faulk the only to have >40 (Faulk rushed for 1,054 yards that year and the Colts rushed for 1,727 total).  Marv's 3rd year was Faulk's best year in Indy and Faulk led the team in receptions, with only he and Marv hauling in >50 receptions.  Marv's receiving cast included Torrance Small, Jerome Pathon, and the injured EG Green.  The TEs caught a total of 55 passes (Pollard and Dilger combined).  Peyton Manning broke the record for single-season interceptions thrown and the Colts were so good they went 3-13.  In 1999, Marv and Edge were the only 2 to have over 50 receptions, and Marv became a star with a receiving corps so good the next best WR was Terrence Wilkins!   OBJ as a rookie had a team that rushed for 1,603 yards, with 2 players (Andre Williams and Rashad Jennings) who outperformed Faulk in Marv's rookie year.  OBJ had Rueben Randle haul in 71 receptions (more than any Colt in 1996), and Larry Donnell haul in 63 receptions as a tight-end (which would have been second to Marvin as a rookie).  Eli threw for 4,410 yards compared to Jim Harbaugh, Paul Justin and Kerwin Bell combining for 3,544.  Did I mention, Eli is likely headed to the HOF, while Marvin was hauling in balls from that trio?    Marv didn't have Reggie until his 6th year in the league, he didn't have a solid QB until his 4th year in the league (Peyton's second year -- Peyton was very troubled as a rookie QB).  Marv had a worse running game than OBJ's team until his 4th year in the league when Faulk had a stellar season.  Marv's best compliment as WR was either Sean Dawkins, Torrence Small, or Terrence Wilkins until his 6th year, when Reggie had a stunning 27 receptions as a rookie.  In fact, Reggie didn't have over 50 receptions and become a legitimate threat across from Marvin until Marvin's 8th year in the league.   OBJ now has Sterling Sheperd and Victor Cruz alongside him, as very legitimate threats.  The one point I hope I made clear is that your argument holds no validity.  I also would like to point out that at this point in time, there is no way to compare OBJ to Marvin as a career WR.... OBJ has had 2 very good years in this league (a much WR and QB friendly league than when Marv started).... Marv had the best 4, 5,  7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 consecutive seasons out of any WR in NFL history... when OBJ comes close to doing any of that, we can revisit the topic.
  • Welcome New Members

    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
