Luck: "I'm 100 percent more comfortable"....


Recommended Posts

I honestly think Luck is the next big thing. he's so Football theres nothing more obvious. I remember reading a draft magazine quote about the number 1 pick that year Cam Newton, it praised Newton up and down and in the middle of that politely  stated that the only reason Cam Newton is the #1 pick is because the Phenom Andrew Luck decided to stay at Stanford for one more year. And i'd never heard his name until then but it just felt like, at the time, that this guy is the next big thing. If theres anybody who has the potential of topping the all-time great Manning, its his understudy, Andrew Luck.

I have not been here that long, so I am just wondering, how did you obsession with apple juice start?

 

It's not really an obsession, just kind of his "thing". Kind of an inside joke for the forum dwellers if ya will.

Age 5 when I had my 1st Big Mac (Don't ask why a 5 year old has a Big Mac haha) I had a side of apple juice and it was amazing when I took that 1st sip. Been hooked on it ever since haha

The real $10,000,000 TK85: What would you do if your best friend drank the last apple juice in the frig or the world was experiencing a global apple juice shortage epidemic? Let's hope the world never gets to find out.  haha  :lol:

 

Just Kidding TK!

This was Andrew's quote this morning while appearing on NFLam...

 

Here is the story and a video clip from NFL.com....

Definitely a good sign going forward. When your leader of the O is comfortable with what is going on, that can only be good for the team..

 

And Luck is not a slouch of a QB to say the least... Can't wait another 3-4 months

Okay, back on the subject of Andrew Luck...He knows the OC, he knows what Pagano expects from him, & he knows that his team mates believe that he can win any game at any given moment despite whatever hole we are in. Translation: Luck will continue to escalate, show that he's not a 1 season wonder, & demonstrate that he will be feared in this league for the next 10-15 years.

Thats when the Big Mac was good.  I swear as the year's go by, my disdain for fast food restaurants grows exponentially! The worst culprit is McDonalds too!  :rantoff:

 

 

Sorry for my hijack. . . . .

 

After watching the video I want football back so bad!  No Football, no Walking Dead :HFire::hide:

Not better than Indy football however.

Thats a pretty bold statement!  I have seen it a couple of times, but I need to start from the beginning.  Wasn't it based off a novel as well?  It kinda reminds me in some aspects of a game I am playing (Skyrim)

Oh, I struck a nerve. Always good to know what a person's achilles heel is. Yes I know, I gotta stop fanning the flames, but I did bring marshmallows, graham crackers, & hershey bars for some smores man! Just Kidding! Thanks for playing along TK85 & for being a good sport about it.  :thmup:

Yeah, it's based off of A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. I just started watching it myself and starting to get hooked already.

haha I love how he avoided the ranking question.  He's too smart to be tricked by the media

 

 

Good catch!    That's a Luck staple.     He'll always avoid, duck,  or ignore those type of questions.   In today's media-hype world answering those questions is an invitation to trouble.     So, he just shrugs his shoulders and says it's no big deal and moves on to the next question...

 

Very Andrew.....

 

It's another of his better qualities as the leader of the team....

I think this is his best interview so far!

 

I shouldn't have watched this clip and read the article...makes waiting for the first snap even harder.

 

I hope I can have 10+ Guinness this season again.

 

What?  You only allow one Guinness per win?

It's a fine way to celebrate, even if it is just one!  I need a celebration tradition like this!  

 

The truth is, that I prefer wine to beer, as You may find it out from my profile pic. I seldom have beer, but only fine ones. So that's where 1 Guinness for a win comes.

GOT's is an R rated medieval fantasy soap opera..     It is the BOMB.  

 

I LOVE Walking Dead...  but Season 3 kinda bummed me out...    

 

GOT's just keeps ramping up ...     

 

And yes.. YOU MUST start at the beginning...   There are many major characters that just don't hang around long...     hehehe..

This kid is almost too good to be true. Please don't wake me.

Here's the great thing you can wake up it's not a dream!  The kid is ours and he's awesome!

 

We might have missed out on Elway but I think the football Gods have made it up to us with Manning and Luck back-to-back.

    • I'd love to see EJ emerge. He's definitely got the measurables. I just have tempered my expectations knowing he's a small school dice roll. Thought we'd see him get some time last year, but instead still saw small bits of the other depth guys.   there's some decent FAs that IMO would be an upgrade, and wouldn't cost a bunch. If we could pick up a guy from a cap squeezed team like Jaylon Brown for like 8Mish a year, I think he'd be perfect for our scheme and a 3 down guy. An aging vet like Perryman or KJ Wright might work out too on a modest short term deal. Perryman might be just a 2 down guy, but his coverage was not bad at all last year.  We're in a 4-2-5 set 60+% of the time already. We've never used the SAM a lot even with both Walker and Oke. In 2019, it was Walker at MIKE on 1st and 2nd (and short yardage), Oke at MIKE on 3rd (and obvious passing downs), and then Oke sometimes at SAM vs teams that ran the edge a lot or obvious run downs. Last year Oke started eating into Walker's 2nd down snaps, and we simply played lite more.    Purely my opinion, but you don't want to see Adams or Franklin taking MIKE snaps unless it's an emergency. And definitely not Glasgow. And keep in mind that EJ is still pretty thin. Oke is undersized already at MIKE. EJ is taller than Oke, but 10lbs lighter. Perhaps EJ put on some good weight, but IMO, his lack of power/strength is likely a factor keeping him off the field. He's probably more suited for WILL than MIKE to be honest. If he can pack 15-20lbs of good weight on, and keep his twitch, he could make for a very nice MIKE. It'll be interesting to see if he's made progress in the offesason. Walker was the QB of the D in 2019, and it was him in 2019 and 2020 that filled in at WILL when Leonard was out. That was a little surprising to me as Oke was "billed" as faster and rangier... Peculiar...   Anyway, his asking price is not what concerns me. He's not going to command a lot in this market, and he's not ranked in the top 200 FAs (PFF) either. What my gut tells me is he'd rather play in 3-4 where IMO he'd be much more productive, and would fit his skill sets better. Better fit for him, and probably more lucrative long term. He also can't be happy with Oke eating into his snaps, especially when Oke isn't playing well. Anyway, I really don't want to see Oke playing early downs. He got tore up early downs at MIKE when Leonard was out. If he's our 3 down guy, I can see teams running right at him.
    • Watt is not a good scheme fit. Period. Especially not at that price point and having played his entire career in basically the same scheme. I don't care what anyone says but Houston would be a really logical signing. You don't need him to be Superman with Buckner doing 3 tech.  If worse comes to worst with this cap squeeze, you could get Houston on a one year rental for a discount. He's already cleared almost $100M over his career and he was solid in 2020. There is no way I chase Watt in FA for a premium coming out of a 3-4 scheme. Green Bay is a much better fit for him. 
    • Jabril Cox would be a nice upgrade from Walker and Oke.  Especially since we play the 4-2-5 60% of the time.  He can cover and blitz, two things that Oke and Walker can't do.
    • The thing with this is the best teams don't usually have a lot to spend on free agents.  Its rare for a team as good as the colts to have as much money as they did the last few years.   We also have like one playoff win in 6 years now while having all that free cap space
    • I’m a Stanford guy and am glad we have Okereke.   But I don’t think his ceiling is as high as you seem to think.   86-90?   I’m not sure what that is based on?   Yes, he had a very good rookie year.  But his 2020 season was a big disappointment.  I don’t know why but he didn’t grade out well at all.     If Leonard is 95-100, I’d peg Oke at a top of 85, but more steadily like 75-80.   But that’s only happening if he has a bounce back type of season.   The same kind of season we all hope Rock will have.  A comeback year.  The Colts need a bunch of those in 2021.
