The guy was down 14-0 today without throwing a pass.  He was down 28-0 after 4 passes, 3 of them being drops, I believe.

 

This team would be 2-14 with Andy Dalton, and in year 3, Luck is infinitely more advanced than Manning or Brady were.  Or, Brees, Rodgers, whoever...

I know Andrew Luck has been anointed as an "elite QB" a future hall of famer etc etc.  The more he plays, the more I agree with Skip Bayless.  To this point in his career, Andrew Luck has been overrated 

I agree he didn't do much today to help his cause with Bayless.  But the Andy Dalton comparison isn't warranted at this point.

comparing Luck to Dalton is a joke if it wasn't for him this team would not even be talked about because they would be 2-14 every year.

is Andrew Luck overrated. absolutely. Is he on the same level as Andy Dalton.. Absolutely not. Luck is the 7th best QB in the league behind only Manning, Brees, Brady, Rodgers, Roethlisberger and Romo.

Romo isnt that good his line is fantastic lets not overrate him

No way. Wilson is a game manager with great play making ability, he is not responsible for carrying his team the way Luck, Manning, Brady, and Rodgers are.

This is ridiculous. Russell absolutely can carry a team just as those guys you mentioned. He is fine quarterback. One thing he wont do is turn it over. If Andrew does not fix that he wont ever be considered great.

Nonsense!

Andrew is fighting his tail off out there making plays with only 2 viable WRs (1 today) and zero viable RBs and a shaky O-line for the most part winning games.

Where would the Colts be with Hasselbeck at QB all year?

The man NEEDS a new starting RB and backup RB and one new WR to make the offense function properly...draft these players early and draft defense last!...at least we can play shootouts and have something to shoot with.

The Seahawks were 31st in the NFL last year in pass attempts and they're 32nd this year. You can't tell me that Wilson isn't a game manager, the offense doesn't run through him, it runs through Marshawn Lynch. I'm not knocking him, he is a good player, but he doesn't throw it nearly as much as the elite QBs do and as a result of it, he doesn't turn it over as much. He's had a top 5 defense and top 5 rushing attack to lean on every year since he's been in the NFL. Give that to Luck, and he would've already won a SB too.

I don't agree  with the original post, Luck is not the major problem on this team.  With that being said I dont agree he is further along than the guys you mentioned..  

 

By three years Brady had two rings.  Rodgers also won a ring in his third year starting, of course it wasn't his third year in the league but still.  

 

You are right, Luck from a winning perspective is ahead of Manning.  It took Peyton until year six to win a playoff game, Luck did it in year two.

Andrew has, in a way that never produces well for any QB, been under siege.

 

He is the most hit QB in the league since entering. Do not discount the profundity of this. Frankly, we're lucky he isn't at home playing FIFA video games with Bradshaw, kicking back while on IR. 

 

I'm upset too. Confirmations were made today, that we're not going to be winning a SB anytime real soon. Yeah, I'm ticked off too. There are those who deserve their blame, some who will not be welcomed back in 2015. But Andrew has been getting his butt kicked since day one, and we're gonna ask him "Why so rattled?"

 

Get the # outta here.
