Does Luck only throw short passes? Two games I've watched now and that's all I see.

His top deep threat, Owusu, is out with a concussion. He's basically left with a slot receiver and two tight ends. Not much of a deep threat available for him.

Luck can't control those stupid turnovers... this kid is like PM, he's amazing, and just look at the guys he works with, terrible special teams, terrible D and terrible receivers plus their missing their top guy, Osuwu (wtv his name is).

Peyton Manning threw 4 INTS in a game in college. His Junior year, Tennessee was a title favorite and Manning was a Heisman contender at the time

It happens.

Watch everyone jump off his d*ck after one bad game lol

I don't think he had a bad game really

Oklahoma is gonna beat ok state.It willend up being a rematch of Alabama LSU.

Can Alabama go to the national championship without even going to their conference championship game? Alabama and LSU are in the same division, I'd imagine it would be LSU vs. Oregon if Oklahoma beats Ok St.

Luck looks like PM out there with no defense,oline can't block,and the recievers can't catch.I am impressed though,nothing has changed my mind,Peyton couldn't beat Florida and the likes of wuerffel.

But... but.... but... the statistics say Stanford is a juggernaut!! rotfl

Hopefully after the Oregon/Stanford game the Luck Hype willdie down. He only throws short passes and his passes over 20 yards and high or flat not allowing the wr to make a catch...LUCK IS OVERRATED and the NFL will be a big change for him...Hopefully after tonight everyone wont be praising him as best QB since Manning...OVERRATED..had to say it again...hopefully Colts don't waste a draft pick on him, trade the pick away to someone else and let them make a mistake in drafting him...i won't call him a Ryan Leaf because Luck has a better head on his shoulders but we might call him a QB like David Carr, Joey Harrington or maybe he willhave 1 good year like Rick Mirer..NONE of themare a QB you want to build a team around...DONT DRAFT LUCK !!!!! Luck will run out after timeand you will have a bust..

Luck has passed for 8337 yards and has thrown 74 touchdowns to only 19 interceptions (this includes the two from tonight) in his college career. He has a 71% completion percentage average over the last two years. That sounds OVERRATED to me.

With all the help he'll be getting on offense, it shouldn't be too big. Your right, the NFL is goiing to be a big change, but that's what they said about Cam Newton, but look at him now. Andrew Luck is very accurate, and it's not like he has deep threat only receivers in Stanford, he has bad receivers and is solid on short to intermediate passes, and pretty good on the long bomb. What do you make more of, long passes or short to intermediate passes...obviosuly intermediate-short passes. 71% speaks for itself, and if you compare him to today's stars in college, he's better than all of them (Manning, Rodgers, Brees, Brady). This kid is NFL ready, that's a fact, plus he has accuracy, zip, great mobility, throws great on the run, and is a good pre-play reader. What else do you ask for in a quarterback.

That interception he had was a bad decision but i do like that he stays calm and came back with a TD. I noticed he over threw 4 or 5 balls and threw one ball behind a TE that was wide open ( even though the TE still could of caught it). There was a few bad drops from the recievers that didn't help his cuase either. When Oregon was getting pressure on him i was kinda dissapointed that he didn't adjust and have a check down (not sure whos fault that is coaches or Luck). Luck overall had an alright game though and threw a lot of accurate passes. Do i think Luck is over rated? Yes, but that's more of the medias fault making him seem like he's the next savior for any NFL team. I still think he will have a good NFL career though.

That has been 1 constant, and basically only critism, mostly short passes as hasn't the velocity for the deep ball unless clearly opoen but hard to lazer one between defenders deep

your baseing all this on one game?He's not perfect geeezus.If you would have saw some of PM's games in college you could have said he was overrated too.Rodgers was good but not great in college.PM had a heck of a lot better recievers than luck too.

The dude also runs like Aaron Rodgers, and lets not forget, when Peyton got to the NFL, he REALLY blossomed after that first season or two of experience. Luck will likely do the same, and we will see a player we cant yet see on these evaluations. Only flashes.

That's analysis is not detailed enough.

rotfl....just kidding, great link!

:)

I thought it was truthful about his lack of downfield throwing ability too, but Peyton and Tom Brady have shown us how quickly a defense can be carved to pieces with the intermediate passing game.

And Luck has done that this season maybe even more with TEs than WRs.

Seeing what Brady is doing with Gronkowski and Hernandez.... it can be a successful recipe with the right QB.

I've actually watched every one of PM's games in college (which is the reason i'm a colts fan now). Most of my comment was just based off that game beside the last two sentences. I never said that Luck isn't worthy of the 1st pick because i think he is. Luck is actually being a lot more hyped then Manning ever was. Are you actually mad that i called Luck out for a few inaccurate passes and taking too many sacks?? Can you please tell me one WR Manning had in college that had a successful NFl career? The only thing i can think of is one good season by Peerless Price and Stallworth has never been productive.

    • I am expecting a low scoring contest with lots of field goals between both teams.     Colts 22 Lions 20
    • This is going to come off as homerish, but to have the things happen to him at the start, (luck and mcdaniels), and to have the team where we are now is nothing short of spectacular.    Hes shown that he isnt married to a strategy and is flexible, which is a super rare trait. For example, multiple years of trading down, then outright taking a risk and trading your 1st all together for an all pro DT.    The only knock you could make imo is his DE prospect evaluation. I haven't liked any of the edge rushers we've picked, and none of them have ever really made an impact. 
    • Dallas could back into winning a bad division, but Jerry is smart enough to know it would be a mere consolation prize.  I see a rebuild, probably thinks McCarthy was the problem in GB.   I think Jerry wants to keep all of his picks, and not waste one on a backup QB.
    • Mack can get $10-15M? No way he gets that right now. The only way Mack can get that is if he can come back, stay healthy for a season and produces big.   I can't see any team committing that type of money to a RB coming off an achilles tear...who has had prior injury issues. Guys like Lendale White, Mikel Leshoure, Kendall Hunter...played for a year and then were pretty much done. Arian Foster was older...but it was basically the end of his career as well. There will be teams that roll the dice on a one-year deal...but not a normal RB FA deal.    It really sucks for Mack...maybe he can buck the trend.
    • He has not been perfect, but he has been very good. I never used to see former Colts players on other teams even going back to Polian days, it just seemed like after the Colts they jus faded out of the league. Now you see ex Colts all over.    The Vinny thing was a mistake for sure and the Rivers saga is still playing out with a bit of a rough start.   I see some people saying were SB contenders this year. I dont believe that to be true after seeing the real contenders vs our team play. If he continues with the GREAT drafts, and fee agent signings and manages to find a franchise qb for the next 10 years we could have a real shot at winning a few in the next decade.
