I never said anything about over-paying for him. Not sure how someone could possibly read what I wrote and come away with that.
And seriously; on what planet is Aiken ever going to be in Moncrief's realm. No need to answer, because it is rhetorical.
I like seeing Russell Wilson get a lot of love. A lot of people seem to knock him for having a strong defense, but something that gets lost is how consistently terrible his Oline is, as well as the sea of mediocrity he gets from his receivers. I know to some Colts fans it's pretty much sacrilege to put him over Luck, but at this point in their careers I would.
But consider this... that Colts 2 14 team was 0 -13 with Kerry Collins and Curtis Painter. Dan Orlovsky came in and helped the Colts to go 2 - 3 in the Colts last 5 games. Yes, this is the exact same Orlovsky that went 0 - 12 to finish out the Lions winless season the year (Kitna started the first 4) before Stafford was drafted #1.
Tells me which of these teams Stafford and Luck inherited were better , no question.
Rushing ability is a great asset (Cam Newton is light years better at it than Luck!), but winning from the pocket is still the most important aspect in a QB's game. Do not be fooled. And GM's/Owners are telling their running QB's (including Cam!) to tame it some. Luck's kidney laceration that ended his season being big reason #1.
