stop protecting him

 

I'm not. I think he gets a free pass a lot of the time because we pull out the win. But this one? You can't put it on him.

So is it on Luck if he puts the ball in someone's hand and they drop it? Is it Lucks fault I'd they fake punt and it's dropped? That first int was his fault.

I'm tired of all these Luck apologists. Who cares...the whole team sucked and that includes Andrew friggin Luck. Get over it. He has been subpar for the past 3-4 games now. He needs to improve his play along with everyone else. He is not above the Colts team. Right now...they all STINK!

and we couldn't just lose both hell no we get destroyed

Exactly...I won't feel better when we beat the Titans next week either. It will be hard for the Colts to make up for those losses outside of a miracle run in the post-season. Fat chance of that. Lol

Does it really matter? It's Luck...he is our best player. Duh? He has been sticking lately and the whole team has been as well. Big whoop. He is the best player on a team that has been playing some really lousy football for the past month of the season. Sorry to break it to you but he is no Brady or Peyton or Rogers or even Friggin Romo right now. Lol

Since you answered Luck, answer this please.

How many rushing yards the colts gained the past 3-4 games? Don't add Luck to the equation.

And how many points the defense allowed? The past 3-4 games? Don't add Luck's pick sixes.

Edit: He's not Brady or Rodgers or Manning but you're missing the point.

dont feel like looking it up...don't want to depress myself any further but I know they have most likely run for less than 100 yards without Luck. My point is just that the whole team is playing lost and that includes Luck right now. He is also leading the team in turnovers over the past 3-4 months. No one is clean here. They all need to get it together...and must shoulder the blame. Being the best player on the team doesn't exclude you or somehow put you above the rest of your team mates. If you were to ask Andrew himself he would probably admit he has to get better. That's the kind of guy he is. It's only his apologetic fans that don't seem to grasp this.

I know. But this stuff happens when you have no running game. That's how the whole team is feeling lost.

They can't run. The team usually 3 and out. The defense gets tired easily and allow points. The QB makes more mistakes(fact that luck leads the league in passing attempts).

I'm not exusing Luck at all. Pretty much no one except the special teams lol.

I'm saying is that the colts right now will never make the AFC championship game let alone wining it because they can't run the damn ball. They need to fix this problem. You can fix the defense later but damn fix the running game.

Edit: Rodgers have a running game. Peyton right now have a running game. Brady. Romo. Flacco. Ben.

They all do and most of them went to the Super Bowl and win. The colts need to fix their problem.

Yeah...we do need to fix the running game.  I definitely agree with you on that. All good QB's need a running game and right now we can't give Luck one.   I really do like Luck and am glad he is our QB.  I'm just really frustrated right now.  I want the whole team to play better and it makes me upset when someone says the Colts are all garbage except for Luck.  I know you didn't say that but the poster I initially quoted did. I apologize if I came off as a jerk towards you.

I know...   watching Sunday night football... 

 

Rodney Harrison just said...   "same story every week" ..       It's not just one player...   it is a culture thing.

 

I promise you all this locker room is way to loose for winning football.     OR ...  LEADERSHIP is non existent.   

 

one or the other.   

 

WOW....           Jim Harbaugh...   keep you cell on ...   OF ALL potential NFL jobs coming open...    INDY is by FAR the most attractive.        Oak, Mia, Chi, NYJ, ...    or INDY and Andrew LUCK?   And I am sure MONEY will not be an issue...

 

Just saying...

Is what it is. How do you average .3 yards per carry ?

Im probably the last guy on earth to complain about the refereeing in the NFL but today I gotta say those refs were bad. They missed obvious holding penalties and let the Cowboys do pretty much what they wanted. When that defensive lineman can have his fingers inside the quarterback's face mask to bring down and no flag is thrown, you know you're in for a long day.

I said it like ...    2 or 3 weeks ago...   "the last few games of the season are HUGE for Chuck" ...    And most giggled...  hmmm?

 

And I meant it..       I really believe...      he needs to show something.  

 

And it is getting worse and worse...     and the BIGGEST FA Coach of the last few years is just happening to come open.  One who has ties to INDY,.....     

 

Just saying...      

 

 

Heck I'd settle for RR.

    • What you are describing is a loss of faith, not blind faith. Being positive does bring faith. Till it becomes negative then the faith dwindles till it's gone. For me I don't give a lot of attention to who is drafted till they are drafted. I don't have the resources and a whole scouting team (and coaches) to help me make the choice. The largest part of what most see is what the media shows. That means schools that draw the most attention. Good GMs pay little attention to what the media has to say. (or what the fans think to be honest).
    • I actually thought this thread would be about having the 32nd pick in the first round of the NFL draft. That would ensure that the player would have a 5th year option for us as opposed to the 34th pick or later picks, where we only have 4 year contracts.
    • This is a terrific question and a fascinating thread.  I don't have a full understanding of how compensatory picks work, but draft capital seems to be king now (especially in light of the rookie salary cap vs. out-of-control free agent contracts).  We didn't need the NFL to tell us the Colts had the best draft class of 2018.  I have reason to believe more good decisions will be made in FA and draft 2019, so this is indeed an exciting time.     Based on Ballard's 2 grand slams and other fine picks last year, you bet I'd buy a 3rd rounder with a viable backup QB.  You can't make Keenum's arm stronger and I don't know if even Luck can make Bortles more serious about football, but just having one of them aboard means you could warm up to Brissett offers and jockey for position in April.     I guess you'd have to take a look at your big board vs. team needs, run the numbers, and start wheeling and dealing accordingly.  This "game within the game" stuff is truly fascinating and probably one of the reasons I enjoy Fantasy Football so much.  Thanks for your post Superman.  Good stuff!
    • Maybe Jachai Polite will fall or even Devin White. There's some decent options at the #13 spot. Not sure if Montez Sweat is worth the #13 pick, but he might be with the combine and pro day coming up.
    • He brought in so many talent potential lads into the Shoe last year. These no-name guys are quickly becoming recognizable faces.    Gotta say that last years draft was amped with talent for many levels and positions. Some potentially playoff caliber quarterbacks too.   This year’s draft will be interesting as it could pose a challenge for most teams outside of the top 10.
