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.

Good thing you're not the GM.

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:

Was just thinking out loud. Fleener reminda me of Matt Jones, I just dont trust him. Allen is a beast, forget these 2 te sets. Only need 1

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?

@andrewmishler: Rookie RB Kerwynn Williams is taking second-team reps in the hurry-up offense.

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.

    • Seems odd in general that it took so long.  Outside of the guy in SD, we rarely hear why someone holds out this long on a mundane contract with so little to quibble over. 
    • One thing I’ll say about Bob though, his small size & Wolverine (comic book character) mentality made him a terror against the run.  With him already being short, when he went submarine on a RB, they really risked their careers if their feet were planted when the Colonel was coming for them.  He turned so many guys into tip toe bandits or sent them helicoptering into the air.  No wonder our run defense was so stout.  Usually only took 1 “meeting” with Bob in the hole, to put fear in the RB’s head the rest of the game...  You had to know where he was at all times or kiss your knees goodbye.
    • I have to disagree with the last sentence. I think Sean Taylor (The former Hurricane & Redskin safety) was and would have statistically been better than all 3 had he not been murdered.  That dude was what you’d get if you created a cyborg safety. Big. Fast. Physical. And immaculate receiver level ball skills...  I still love the other 3, especially the Colonel, but Taylor was on another level.  A combination of all 3.
    • This is a big compliment for KM.    
    • No, if he wants to go be a gm somewhere who are we to hold him back from that.
