Oregon Vs Stanford Game Thread

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'll take any QB.   @EastStreet Do you think any team would be willing to trade for Cousins? We may have to incentivize it and offer a mid-round pick to make the trade happen.  I thought Dallas for a 8-9 game rental. (Actually, Dalton may be more of a winning QB than Kirk. That was a good signing by Dallas.)   I'm thinking of any place to send Cousins. 
    • Not being emotional. Just calling out silly, which this is. Why is it silly? And why is it silly "right now"?   1) JT is outperforming Mack's first year significantly, and at the same time, being asked to do much more (running and catching). AVG 3.8 vs 4.1 RunYPG 25.6 vs 61.2 RcvYPG 16.1 vs 27.0   2) JT currently has the same AVG as Elliot, and a better AVG than McCaffery, Jacobs, and Mixon all highly regarded. 3) In terms of first years, Taylor is doing better than McCaffery, And is doing better than year 2 of Gurley 4) Our scheme/play calling doesn't help Taylor at all, and actually hurts him. That will change if Reich keeps things open. 5) JT is learning a new system. His vision will come as he learns our zone blocking scheme.   JT isn't getting the Brissett treatment this year. Brissett wasn't a rookie last year, didn't have an amazing and proven track record at a big school, etc., JB performed the way he's always performed since college, so folks defending him didn't really know his past, or have realistic expectations of his ceiling. He was still struggling with the exact same things he struggled with in college.    The case is not the same for JT. JT has a higher ceiling, a proven track record at a big school, just needs time to adjust, and is already outperforming his predecessor while doing more at the same time.
    • Click here for this week’s Colts Mailbag! The bye week has provided plenty of opportunities to take a look back at the first six weeks of the season. Lots of in-depth questions this time around on Quenton Nelson pulling in the run game, three-tight end sets, slant route usage, offensive pace and more.   Thanks again for the thoughtful submissions, and try to enjoy your Sunday without Colts football.
    • Ravens, think Jackson gets in done in playoffs, KC will be right there, Colts wont be a tough playoff out by any means either, Buffalo a year away imo.     Bears their D gives everyone problems, Robinson having another very good year at WR (Maybe top WR no one really talks about much) already beat the Bucs and their schedule is easy down the stretch also which will allow a fresh roster into the playoffs.  Seattle has looked impressive and a lot of depth, Tampa wont go down easy and Drew looking to cap career in N.O. with one last run.
    • That's a lot of work, I'm always appreciative of the people here that put that kind of effort into the forum.  So thank you.    I just wrote a post on a different topic that touches on this a little bit.  I'm not sure what to make of the receiver carousel but typically receiver production is a by-product of the QB.  Rivers has a lot to do with it as it relates to schemes etc.  We're way to shotgun dependent (75%) which takes play action out of the equation which we're built for. To me, that's because Rivers like to read the defense but it also works in reverse and makes routes and patterns easier to cover because there's no play action and NOBODY is biting on backfield run fakes from the gun.  My two cents.  Thanks again.
