Does luck have the freedom to audible yet?


Recommended Posts

We all know that PM had full control and authority to do whatever he wanted on the field, is luck given the freedom to check out of plays yet and if so, is he checking out correctly and how much? I'm not seeing the check outs but maybe I'm used to seeing Manning doing it on every play. I think Luck is cerebral enough to recognize but maybe the team wants to harness his responsibility.

Part of it is due to the amount of new guys on the offense; another part is this isn't the Manning offense. Moore (later Manning himself) gave him concepts and Manning adjusted accordingly. This is a different offense altogether. That said, I think Luck is ready to audible. From all I have read, it is the rest of the offense that is not. Our offensive line has not really played together. Those guys all need to be on the same page when it comes to audibles (changing coverages, blitz pickups, etc.), and they haven't been together long enough to get that down. Same goes for the receivers/RBs. So it's partly to due with personnel, but mostly b/c this is not Tom Moore/Peyton Manning's offense. That said, I've seen Big Ben Pittsburgh audible plenty, so it is a part of Arians' offense. They (besides Luck) just aren't there yet.

You can audible to whatever you like, but when you make bad throws that are not timed properly, and sailed to WR who are covered by 3 men the outcome against quality opponents will be similar to yesterdays game. I'd like to see Andrew continue to improve in that area more than I would like to see him audible. He'll get there because getting a 50 burger put on you is a bad taste!

I'm talking about him getting to the line with a run okay called but it being stacked against him, have you seen the freedom to change the play to a pass? All rookies throw into coverage they shouldn't and having defenders in your face every play because of such a garbage line doesn't help. If Luck was behind Brady's line, how deadly do you think he would be then?

    • I would strongly consider signing FA safety Eric Reid.   Than we need to see about focusing on LT, TEs, and DEs for next season.  Worse case may have to see how the Cardinals are using Kelvin Beachum and offer a trade if we end up losing AC early mid-trade season.  Other potential upcoming FA's may look more into would be TB Bucs WR Chris Godwin, TE Gerald Everett, and DE Trent Murphy.     I realized we just paid Kelly at center but oft-injured game-time availability has me wondering how our backup would do.  Am looking at Centers Daniel Kilgore (KC), Evan Brown (Browns) or Josh Andrews (Jets) as potential backup targets.    As for the 2021 draft my early LT target to keep an eye on is Jackson Carman from Clemson in Round 1.  Again I am high on S Hamsah Nasirildeen (Florida St) who went back to school but should still be a first rounder.  TE Pat Freiermuth (Penn St) has me intrigued.  As for DEs had Edge Patrick Jones II (Pitttsburgh) on my wish list in Round 2.  Hilton's age on the end of his career had me looking at WR Nico Collins (Michigan) in Round 3.  Collins has solid hands and no history of drops.
    • I’ve found my new favorite way to watch a game.  Really gives you an idea of what's happening.    You can see play design, who’s out of position, who missed a block, who fell down, even who’s pickin their nose or scratchin their butt. All 22 on the field so you miss nothing.   I especially like to see the blocking bubbles grow or collapse on the line.   I just cant say how much i’m gaining from this.  Each play is run twice...once from sideline (all 22), then from endzone (all 22).  Great to see the plays develop, or a defender fly across the field to a tackle.   No sound, so i will still watch normally first (or radio sometimes for drama), but if anyone never checked it out..... you must!  I cant believe i waited this long.  I have such a better idea of what we’re trying to do and who looks good or bad on EVERY play.   Also, i feel better about last week after watching for some odd reason.  I kept finding myself saying “oh, thats why that happened.”   The normal perspective is such a focused frame , usually on the ball.  We’re missing all the little battles going on in the periphery.
    • Well the misconception was the Jags were going to tank this season. No one told them that.  Your sky is falling opinion is way too pre mature. 
    • My questions are can he find the crack and what will he do mean the crack ain’t there.  Wisconsin doesn’t do cracks, they block chasms against the cornfield circuit.
    • Many die hard colt fans are sugar coating this loss as they want to believe so hard that this was a fluke or lol actually believing the Jags are a good team!  After the Jags just unloaded ALL their probowl talent, you think the roster is loaded?  If their loaded, what do you call this colts roster?  I think the Colts overlooked their opponent even know they haven't won there since a grip.
