I think ya got a beaut in Luck. One tough thrower. Aggressive like Simms said and will take chances but like Farve..they can pay off big too. Great at throwing on the run.

I wouldn't be so tough on him in his rookie year and despite yall thinking NE has a bad defense ala the NFL crap stats, they are intense and those kind of defenses make plays..sometimes when you least expect.

I've said it before.

I'll say it again.

'Dem turnovers. Nobody does it better than NE. Yards given up be darned.

I think or at least imo its more of we know the potential of the team but certain factors prohibit this team. We could have made this closer and if our playcaller had half a brain wed be in this till the last min but we refuse to adjust and refuse to bend to what is given to us in playcalling!

This is tough to watch, but have people really forgotten that we were 2-14 last year? Yes this team has shown flashes of greatness and there is a lot to be excited about, but a rookie team, missing their head coach - getting blown out by NE isnt exactly a shocker or something to hang our heads about. We all (well, those of us who are honest) knew this was a possibility.

Learn from the mistakes and get better.

Luck has played probably one of hia worst games yes but no one is talking about the atrocious play calling or game mismanagement... The bright idea of forgetting what running the ball was was soo good and the even better idea of running nothing but long time consuming routes when their d has momentum is even better... Awful coaching.... Can't rely on luck to outtalent or outwill the oposing team when the opponent is actually well coached.

his bears game and jets games were worse he threw no tds versus jets

Defense is weak anymore...NE is running thru them like a wet paper bag. I hope that the Colts will draft some hot young D players like....Manti Teo, lol who would be excellent next to Freeny!

I miss Peyton and his comebacks too but this young team is gonna only get better!

Mr. Ohio Colts fan who is saying that Luck "ruined his weekend and Thanksgiving" is just silly! If you depend on a Football team to create happiness for you, you need to get a hobby or something!! It's A GAME sweetheart, and as sweet as victories are, not everyone can win every game.....play like a champion...win or lose.

    • Yeah, Hines isn't, nor ever has been, a true RB.  He's a 3rd down pass catcher or a specialty play guy that has to get the ball on a hand off occasionally to keep the D honest.  He has had to fill in as a backup RB over the years because of injuries or roster limitations.
    • I think it could be.  But we need more evidence.  However, I look back to last season when they likely had less overall talent.  This defense fared well vs. the Chiefs.  They fared well in both games vs. the Texans.  They held Tennessee down in the 1st game.  High-flying Atlanta had just 24.  I mean it's not like this defense didn't show some good things last year.  And now we have added Buckner and several others to that and didn't really lose much, maybe Sheard?    I think they could very well be legit.  Just how legit that is who knows, but I would not beat all surprised if they are top 10 by the end of the season.
    • I'm pretty sure they new early, and all along that Kelly would never play, unless it was an emergency. I'd bet they have given CK a "plan" to follow, and I'd also bet they were clear his chance at PT was little to none.   And aside from that, they just weren't going to do that to JB given he was under contract for the next year. Wouldn't have been a good look.   Now did I want to see CK late last year, absolutely. But I understand why I didn't. Well, either they really like CK, it's a favor from Reich to uncle Jim, or it's all about Covid. Or a combination of the 2 or all three. Without seeing them in preseason, we just don't know who's best. And yes, CK was obviously better in college, but that always doesn't translate to the NFL. Personally, I love the thought of CK sticking if he can keep his nose clean. I'm pretty sure at minimum he could be a good backup. He won that role in Denver after all, from a pretty picky Elway. Eason does have some great tools, and also could be very good if he can work some things out. We're simply not going to have any answers for a year or two.
    • Patience.  We might very well see Eason taking snaps toward the end of the season.  Right now JB is under a large contract and is the better backup option...to start a game.....in case Iron Man misses one.  So JB needs some reps now to be fresh enough able to come into a game or start.   I don't expect Eason to be activated on a game day until maybe mid-season.   Towards the end of the season, we'll begin to see more thought towards the future and Eason might get some work.
