Is it me or does Luck always struggle in practice? I still wonder if he has the arm to be a true great .Just sayin.

 

Dude launched the ball nearly 50 yards while falling forward in college.  Threw 75 yards into the wind at his pro-day.

 

He's got the arm strength.  

 

Biggest fear with Andrew Luck is that sometimes he tries to do too much.  

 

But he has all the tools to be a great player for the next 15 years.

Yes, its you. And Luck's arm is better than Peyton Manning's ever was.

No bleeping way. Peyton had a rifle and was better at sqeezing the ball into tight spots. Luck may be able to throw it farther, but who cares about that? Peyton was more accurate and able to throw through smaller windows.

Peyton never had a rifle. He was just so good at reading defenses and putting the ball where the defender wasn't/couldn't be.

Peyton also throws a fair amount of those wounded duck passes. So he's far from a perfect passer.

I say trade Fleener and go with a 3wr set of Reggie, TY and Whalen with Allen starting te.DHB drops are probably going to be an issue.

If not for Goodluck, I would have no bad luck.....

 

Fleener and Allen are set to shine....mark the old dog's word GoodLuck.  TE sets are the norm with Pep....read Kevin Bowen's most recent blog. :thmup:

You got that from both their rookie seasons? Wow. Nice piece of analysis. Ore are you matching Peyton's 14 seasons v 1 of Lucks?

Andrew Mishler @andrewmishler 15m

Hasselbeck hits Kelley for a deep sideline pass in drills. Him and Luck were both missing their marks slightly before that.

 

Andrew Mishler @andrewmishler 4m

I like what I've seen from Jeremy Kelley so far. Big TE-like frame, but runs smoothly and catches the ball well. Consistent.

@andrewmishler: First play of 11-on-11, Luck throws slightly behind Wayne and it gets deflected up by Toler, but Reggie adjusts and catches it anyway.

@andrewmishler: Deep bomb over the middle to DHB from Luck lands perfectly in his hands...and he drops it.

@andrewmishler: And here we go. Griff Whalen just caught a pass from Luck. Yes, with the first team.

@gmbremer: Another good defensive play by CB Greg Toler, who closed late and knocked away pass intended for Dwayne Allen. #ColtsCamp

@gmbremer: T.Y. Hilton with the catch of the day so far, a diving reception deep down the sideline. #ColtsCamp

Griff Whalen will definitely make the 53 man roster as 4th/5th receiver. I'm sure we will add one more between Kelly and Palmer.

Considering there isn't much game-day pressure, Toler is ballin'. Making soo many plays

Sure looks that way.  But when Brazil gets back, one of them will be cut.  Whalen appears to be the real deal.  He just has to keep on the field.

Brazill cut himself for 4 games. We have to go into the season with 5 receivers at least. I don't think 4 would be enough in this offense

No I don't. When he is suspended for 4 games, Griffin will take over as 4th WR and may keep that role if he performs well once Brazill gets back.

Keep forgetting about his suspension! Sounds like Brazill may end up 5th on the depth chart the way Whaelen is going. Griff has everything in his favour in this new offense. Like others are saying hopefully he stays healthy.

That's 4 games for 2 receivers to make the coaches realize that Brazill is a waste of time.

Nathan Palmer or Big Kelley might be the one to do it. Cause Griff Whalen will probably stay on the 53 if he stays healthy

So it could be

Reggie Wayne

DHB (If his sorry hands improve)

Ty Hilton

Griff Whalen

Brazill/Palmer/Kelley

Greg Toler seems really impressive so far. Will be interesting to see how he does during the pre-season.

@andrewmishler: T.Y. Hilton has had a fantastic practice. Catching everything thrown his way and separating well against the first-team D.

My brother & I sat in frustration last night also between espn & nfl network. We saw 1 short clip on sophomore qb's. Good talk on Luck, but half the time that RGIII got ( he is going to be another first round flop soon). The media is awful. We cringed everytime we saw something on the Cowboys. Not even a playoff team & they own the preseason tv time. Hope we have a good camp, forget the preseason games & let's watch some football. Preseason is dragged on way to far.

    • You brought up the notion that proximity to UGA makes you more knowledgeable about UGA, and therefore, have greater insights into the dynamics of the team "than just about any body on this forum".  I've never ever brought it up because I know it doesn't matter.   But by your measure, my proximity, ( and the number of UGA fans I have to endure) gives me a freaking PHD about it and makes you just a freshman pledge.......Flounder.   Having said that, the useful information gleaned from the combine about Fromm, notably hand size, puts him into the higher risk bucket for me (like Kinlaw's knee), which strengthens my liking for Herbert as the college QB option, (as I've noted, not Fromm) which is only third best behind trading for Carr then Stafford, IMO.   Even TUA and Burrow have risks, both having season generated stats that benefited tremendously from a supporting cast.  Golly, Jefferson runs a 4.4, who knew? You know, just do the Mahomes thing, throw the football down field in the area of the fast guy and the fast guy will make you look like you know what you're doing.    
    • Steve Smith brutal with John Ross lol On Ross watching Ruggs run the 40: "he might be watching him take his job if he keeps playing like this"  
    • I'm watching a replay of some of what I missed last night. Peoples-Jones looks very good on the gauntlet.    Victor is not fast, but he catches the ball very well too...    Lamb looks awesome! Such a natural catcher of the ball.    Mooney ran fast 40, but bobbles a lot of passes on the gauntlet.    Reagor - real nice too...     
    • Yeah, my opinion about this draft, and probably any future draft, is that I want  known high-floor player with upside potential, not a currently risky-floor player with all-pro upside.  We've had too many Hooker's, Wilson's, TJ Green's, even going back to Werner, TRich, and Dorsett that resulted in putting good money after bad.   This team has such an average-to-bad starting roster that getting an immediate upgrade to nearly ANY starting position also upgrades the team materially.  WR or OT could be that BPA high floor starter, and those positions are close to being a top need anyway, especially looking a year or two ahead.  Still, DT is the top need, but I wouldn't want to risk the capital on a potential lingering problem.
    • Here are my quick analysis of players to target at this point in time with the Combine just starting and our Colts immediate team needs:   R1P13 DT Justin Madubuike (Texas A&M) - Versatile can play either 3T or 5T.  Colts needed a 3T last year and failed to draft one capable of replacing Autry.    R2P34 TE Adam Trautman (Dayton) – No surprise the Colts will be looking to add a young top TE early in the draft after letting Ebron walk in FA.  TEs that can both block and catch are rare in the NFL.  Trautman should become the next Kittle in the NFL given the right offense.  If we do acquire Rivers in FA he will need a player like Gates he can connect with in Trautman for a few years.   R2P44 WR Chase Claypool (ND) – Colts add another red zone weapon in the mold of a Calvin “Megatron” Johnson.  May need to work on his hands but has major upside as a deep threat.   R3P75 SS Jeremy Chinn (S. Illinois) – Khari Willis stepped in and replaced Geathers last year, but Willis didn’t wow me.  Chinn is a jack of all trades DB and local Indy native.  Looked like a LB but played like a corner during Senior Bowl.  Great range and matched up well vs TEs and WRs.  Showcased his versatility during the Senior Bowl playing different DB positions with success.  Wouldn’t surprise me to see Chinn go in R2.    R4P112 R5P143 CB Amik Robertson (Louisiana Tech) - A Slot CB could become a starting Nickle.  WOW factor in college defending passes.  Great in run support should be great in both Zone and Man if he can shadow routes.  DB game day health was an issue last season and having a versatile DB like Chinn gives us added DB flexibility to go along with Robertson who can start in place of Moore.  Realize Moore was an UDFA that the Colts just paid handsomely for who has been one of the best Slot corners in the NFL.   R5P143 DL Larrell Murchison (NC State) - Thrives in smaller spaces and should become a good rotation 3T for 4-3 defense   R6P173 OT Alex Taylor (South Carolina St) – Developmental player with strong combine tangibles (Wingspan 88”, hand 11 2/8, arm 36 1/8).   R7P205 RDT Broderick Washington Jr (Texas Tech) – rotational value as a 3T   Realize too many variables and different directions we can go but tried to address some of our biggest issues in draft outside of a questionable draft QB that may or may not be any better than our current roster.  Everybody's got their 2 cents so would like to hear from yours...
