They're both top 7 QB's. Wilson has accomplised more and is an electric scrambler but I believe Luck is a more skilled passer. In reality though it is not an apples to apples comparison.
They were drafted into much different circumstances. Luck to a horrible roster and Wilson to one of the top rosters of the last decade. They don't even have remotely similar play styles. In fact I doubt either guy would succeed playing the other's style.
They're both really good, they're just really good at completely different things and their offensive systems have been tailored accordingly.
Also, the take that Luck can't beat elite QB's is a laughably bad one. First off, he has. 3-1 against Manning (including the playoffs and both years Denver went to the SB). 2-0 against Rogers. 1-0 against Wilson in the year Seattle won the SB. Etc., etc. So he hasnt beaten NE, few QB's have. Also, Luck is not required to play defense against said QB's.
Maybe more like no official GM. Most likely, the Pro Player director and College Scouting director and others will collaborate together until the GM position gets filled... most likely by Caserio next May/June 2020.
yes you can separate the two, and no those contracts did not kill them at all
those problems you listed are not because of cap space. their best WR, running back and Oline players were hurt. that would make most teams look bad.
its funny that you are trying to blame that on cap management. the Oline has the talent to be top 10 at least if they are healthy. they had 3 starters miss a combined 26 games.
