Andrew Luck leading league in passing TDs

Saw Colin Cowherd tweet this and had to look it up. Andrew Luck is currently leading the league in passing TDs. I know we throw A LOT but still nice to see he's been pretty efficient with those throws. Also considering the slower start he had in a couple of those early games and how far along he has come these last three games. Guy is back and better than ever IMO. His accuracy has been spot on. Take away some of the drops and this team is in a way different position. 

 

Bravo Andrew, bravo. Here's to you winning comeback player of the year. Here's the other league leaders in passing TDs. Mahomes plays tonight.

At least until Pat Mahomes gets it going tonight.  But either way AL is having a nice comeback year.  I really think next year he is going to be an MVP candidate.  But they don't give those out to guys on losing teams.

I think CBPY is locked up!

Do they really? Honesty question.   I know there have been a lot

I heard the announcers say that the Colts have had 15 drops in the past 3 games.   That has to put us near the leaders in drops.

Ok, but grading a corner on tackles is dumb.  I didn't watch that game

Speaking in generalities, a corner, especially one that plays mostly man coverage, with a low amount of tackles means he is doing his job in coverage.  Not always going to be the case obviously, but still.

He makes good on all the weapons he has. Imo, the Chiefs have the best offensive weapons across the board with Hill, Hunt, and Kelce leading the way

 

Luck could make Hilton, Mack, and Ebron look just as good if everyone stays healthy and the OLine continues to gel and improve.

 

But yeah, all of their skill positions on offense are just slightly better than ours right now.  Plus, Andy Reid is slightly better than Reich with the creative offensive plays.

 

But the Colts offense isn't too far behind the Chiefs.

TDs are pretty circumstantial (just look at yesterday's game).

 

My biggest takeaway though in regards to TDs....

 

First half TDs (HOU, NE, NYJ combined)...2

First half TDs (BUF)....3

 

Playing from behind and putting up points in catchup mode looks solid on the stat sheet...but scoring early and often wins games.

Depends on your definition of "slightly" I guess. IMO...

 

Hill/Hunt/Kelce >>> Hilton/Mack/Ebron

 

Those KC guys are top 10, top 5 and top 3 at their positons...respectively.

 

And while TY is the man...Hill is basically TY entering his 3rd season...and he's even more dynamic.

 

Colts should be striving for what KC has.

Luck's playing great, as most of us expected!  I can't get over this stat, Luck has more TD's in the last 5 games than the Bills, Titans and Cardinals have all year combined.  The man is on a mission!  It'd be nice if the running game continues to be successful, I know the D will only get better.

It is easy to  get up for what Luck is doing but lets not abandon the  improvement in the OL. We have cried and complained for years about how bad they were and if Luck had a good one he will show how much this team can win so say your praises but my stars go for the OL players and Luck will get all the media boys & girls to kiss and hug him and ignore the knuckle draggers as is always the case with every team.

Part of that is the change in the focus of our passing game.  We're not running the Arians down the field routes that take forever to develop.  Luck is getting the ball out much quicker than in previous years.  In 2018, Luck is 13th out of a 38 qualifying passers in time to throw, getting the ball out 2.62s on average after the snap.  In 2016, before being shut down, he was 36th of 39 qualifying passers with an average of 2.88s from snap to throw - more than a quarter second slower.

 

The line is doing great.  Luck has knocked off any rust that might have been present at the season's start.  And we have a coach/GM who is apparently more interested in protecting our QB.  Wins for everyone.

    • The only locks for making the playoffs in North are Ravens and Steelers.   Mayfield has proven time and time again this year that he is very inconsistent.   Calling a WC team a lock for the playoffs in Week 8 is laughable.    There's still tons of football left. 
    • On a scale of bad, below average, average, above average, good, very good, great - I put Reich at worse above average. With Luck he was good - a very good/great QB makes a difference. He has a good track record as well with Philly. His record with us is 22-18 counting the playoffs = above average. IMO he is nothing like Chuck, Reich will go for it on 4th down at times even, he is much more bolder but he can't win with some of the fans. He goes for it and doesn't get it, some hate it, he settles for 3 some hate it. 
    • Coaching certainly helps as well so let's not excuse Belichick as if he's garbage.   He took a Bradyless team with Cassel and led them to 11-5.   Patriots biggest issue to me besides losing Brady was several starters opting out at the beginning of the year due to covid.   I don't their record would be much different especially since I think Cam best days are behind him.   He could just tank for Lawrence but Jets seem dead set on that notion right now.
    • Yep, it's a MONSTROUS game for the Colts' playoff hopes.     It'll likely come down to the Colts, CLE and LV with 2 of them getting the #6 and #7 seeds.     If CLE beats LV this weekend, barring some crazy occurrences (critical injuries, etc.), they're probably    a lock. They'll have the tiebreaker over both and with their schedule, they'll likely get to 10 wins   anyway.     The Colts need to head into week-13 at 7-4. To do that, they need to win 3 of the next 5. Do that    and beat HOU and JACK at home and you're at 9 wins. That may be enough, but sweep HOU and    you're at 10 wins and it's a given.         But lose @ DET and winning 3 of the next 5 gets VERY tough.  At 6-5 heading into wk-13, it's a     tougher climb to get to 9 wins and 10 is probably a long shot.        
    • Let me start off by saying I support Chris Ballard and his approach thus far.   Ballard's philosophy has often been seen as quantity over quality. He's dealt with this 2x now in past drafts and has shown pretty good success.    I'm not sure the exact # yet but I believe 80% or more of Ballard's draftees are still active.    That stat alone is the main reason even with the trade downs each year that I support him.   His slow methodical approach on building the Colts is certainly trending in the right direction right now but I am really hoping he takes the next step with solving the QB crisis in 21'.   What are your thoughts on Ballard? Do you like him? Do you hate him? What do you wanna see different from him?
