I'm sorry but that is nonsense. Peyton never had this lack of talent around him.

 

Luck can't make his guys run better routes, create separation, or catch the damn ball. Give me a break.

Please Peyton made guys like Blair White look like a competent receiver. He had a better grasp of the game and where to place the football.  He knew where his receivers were supposed to be and put them in the best position to make plays.   Luck still needs to grow in that area if you want to call him elite.

That’s the problem...it’s not just this season.  Over his whole career Luck has not been an elite QB.  He is too turnover prone for one thing.  He needs to get after his under performing team mates more for another.  He is too golly go lucky.  Not everyone can be elite.  Doesn’t mean he isn’t good or can’t be elite one day.  But he just hasn’t yet achieved the elite status.  If you poll most NFL fans outside of Indianapolis most would not include him in the list of current great quarterbacks.  He would be lumped in with the rest of the pretty good young guns though he will be creeping up on 30 pretty soon. 

 

Nothing sounds more useless than an "NFL fan poll". Most are clueless and would echo the sentiment of the mostly clueless media.

True. Dallas Clark stunk too. Good thing Peyton was there to make them who they are. 

What did Dallas do after leaving Peyton?  That’s what I thought.

As clueless and useless as homer Colts fans proclaiming error prone Andrew Luck as an elite quarterback post after post.

Why are we talking about Peyton Manning? If you want to compare the surrounding cast of Luck's vs. Manning, you're going to lose. Blair White looked pedestrian with Manning. Luck could easily make him look pedestrian. Hell, he is probably better than anyone Luck is throwing to right now.

 

I love Peyton and think he is the GOAT. But his situation is no way comparable to Luck's.

That's funny.  That's exactly who I was thinking of.  I remember a game.  I don't remember who they were playing.  I think it was a playoff game, but I'm not sure.  Peyton threw an over-the-shoulder TD pass to Blair White.  It was one of the most beautiful passes that I have ever seen.  Just perfectly placed.

Error prone or trying desperately to make chicken salad out of chicken ....? Not to say he doesn't make mistakes because he does but it looks a lot of the time like he's trying too hard when others around him aren't trying hard enough.

You serious? He was 33 years old.

 

You trying to imply Clark wouldn't have been a success without Peyton?

 

And btw:

TB 2012

47 receptions for 435 yards and 4 touchdowns

Balt 2013

31 receptions for 343 yards and 3 touchdowns

 

Not too bad. You're really reaching for your erroneous argument.

That's a ridiculous argument.  Most of the receivers that Peyton worked with were towards the end of their careers when he left the Colts.  You can't compare Dallas in his twilight years to Dallas in his prime.  What did Reggie Wayne do with the Patriots after leaving Luck?  That doesn't make Luck a better QB than Tom Brady.

Yeah it kinda is.  Lol.  But at the same time we never got to see how good Dallas was away from Manning so it’s hard to say how good he would have been with another QB. Would he have still been a household name?  Back in the day alot of Colts fans were saying that Peyton was the reason why our receivers looked so good.  Not saying I agreed back then but just look at how much the team fell off that one year Peyton did not play due to his neck injury.

Dallas Clark was a Good player but it's hard to say how Good he wouldve been without Manning. I can only safely say Wayne and Harrison wouldve been Good to Great without Manning. The others, I am not sure about.

Yep. He is either good luck or bad luck.  Don’t know which you will get.  Sometimes both on the same Sunday.  Falls way behind (due to turnovers & fg settling) and then rallies back just enough to pad his passing stats against defenses playing in protect mode.  That’s not elite...sorry.

Clearly you expect Luck to win games despite his terrible team. That is ridiculous...sorry.

 

Even the most elite QBs can only do so much with so little.

That’s a different tune than what some Colts fans were singing last year.  All the “with Luck the Colts would have been 8-8 last year” or all “the Colts never have a losing season with Luck” stuff.  Looks like some of the fan base propped him up too much too soon.  I accept that he is not elite and that the team is not very good so thus I can understand all the losing.   It’s not befuddling to me. Talent or lack of talent aside...the Colts as a team make too many mistakes from Luck on down the roster.

All right, we're done here. Luck will hopefully have the cast before he retires to prove the naysayers wrong.

We can agree on that. We all want to see him succeed here.

    • Peyton disagrees with you:     Peyton Manning 'drops the mic' on brother Eli Manning's Hall of Fame debate   "To me, it's the time to look back and reflect. Everybody else wants to look ahead and have this debate. And I understand, that's just the world we live in. I know Eli doesn't think like that, and I don't think like that either. But I certainly have my strong feelings and opinions on it. When you're the Super Bowl MVP twice against the greatest dynasty of all-time, the New England Patriots, Tom Brady/Bill Belichick, and you join a list that includes Terry Bradshaw, Bart Starr, Tom Brady and Joe Montana, Eli Manning as the only (multiple) Super Bowl MVPs.    "I don't really know what that term, 'drop the mic' is, but I guess if there was one. ... There really is no 'yeah, but' after that. That kind of ends it. But if you want a, 'yeah, but,' yeah, but he also started 220-plus consecutive games. He's sixth or seventh all-time in touchdowns. It wasn't like he just played those two seasons.   "He answered the bell, played his butt off, won some huge games for his team. I have strong opinions on it, but I'm gonna pull and Eli and live in the present and kinda look back if you will and not look too far ahead, get too worried about it."  
    • That's fine, but I think buried in the ranking was the relative great performances of the later picks like Okerke, Willis, and Tell more than the earlier picks living up to....or exceeding...expectations.  How can they rank Ben and Parris very highly?  They didn't play much.   Having the early picks exceeding expectations takes you closer to the SB than having your 4th and 5th rounders exceeding expectations.  JMO.
    • well tis the time of year where the Colts would be linked to most big name FA's because of cap space....though this would make sense. 
    • So it seems all the teams evaluators leave after the practices are over and watch the game from home. So everything that happens during the week seems to be more important then the actual game.
