Why?

 

He was top-5 statistically in 2018.

 

He's one of the top-5 most talented QBs in the league.

 

He has a top-5 OLine.

 

Hilton, Ebron, Doyle, Campbell, Funchess, Hines is a pretty good group of skill players for the passing game.

 

He's also been given the second-best odds at the 2019 MVP at 9-1, behind only Mahomes at 6-1.

I mean, it's pretty hard to argue with the 5 names on that list. I think Luck is a top 7 QB all day but those top 5 are really good. Brady didn't have a top 5 regular season, but you can't not have him on the list.

Mahomes? After one good year and all of the sudden he's top 3?

Yep...fairly objective. But there's always going to be a degree of subjectivity when it comes to QBs.

 

From that list...can't really argue Mahomes or Brees...given the seasons they had. Brady keeps winning Super Bowls every year. Rodgers is arguably the best to ever play the position (best...not greatest)...and then you have Big Ben...who statistically had a very similar season to Luck...but a longer track record.

 

The whole 5-8 range is pretty subjective.

y’all argue about everything it’s his opinion. Anyone conversation for those 5 is a valid conversation to be labeled top 5

I think Warner is picking Super Bowl winning QBs (obviously besides Mahomes who he can't keep off the list and remain credible) because it makes his own legacy look better.

And you have guys like Wilson...and even Goff and Wentz. Plus Matt Ryan fits on a list somewhere. Very tough to crack the top 5...the QB position has gotten much stronger.

Except it's not a good year, it's a top 3 year stat-wise of all time with Brady and Peyton in what was essentially his rookie year. Hill isn't officially gone yet, and they drafted a Hill clone in Mecole Hardman to replace him just in case.

His list is a good one. Luck if not top 5 he is close. Its like ice cream all flavors are good which is your preference. I don't think his list is a sleight to Luck its his oppion. Luck has to prove him wrong.

The only part I'd argue is Big Ben.  Big Ben hasn't been that good in a couple seasons. I'd argue that Luck tops Big Ben, now whether or not either should be top 5, depends on what the metrics are.

I cant see Pat in front of Aaron just yet. One great season dosnt supersede multiple great years. And is big Ben really much better than Luck or Russell Wilson (I honestly think those two are at the same level)?

It's subjective, but Ben's performance last year was right up there with Luck's. He had 5,100 yards, 34 TDs, 16 picks, 67% completions, 96 passer rating, adjusted yards 7.5/attempt, TD % 5.0. 

 

Luck had 4,600 yards, 39 TDs, 15 picks, 67% completions, 99 passer rating, adjusted yards 7.4/attempt, TD % 6.1. Luck had a better season, and the Colts made the playoffs over the Steelers, so if you said Luck was better last year, I'm fine with that.

 

But Luck didn't play in 2017, and Ben had just as strong a season as he did in 2018. Plus a track record, two rings, higher on all time lists, etc. I think it can be argued either way, but it's not egregious that someone would have Ben ahead of Luck going into 2019.

Agree. Also, if we are going solely off last year's stats...then Matt Ryan probably has the most legit gripe.

 

Statistically, he was a top 5 QB last year...maybe even top 3. He quietly had a phenomenal season...and he's only two years removed from being an MVP. 

 

I wouldn't say Ryan is a top 5 QB...but he has as good of an argument as any. Once you get past those top 4...it's very subjective as to what you value.

I think he gets suspended for that audio...but I don't think think he's done. Obviously, things can change...but as of right now...I think it's become more and more likely that he isn't done.

Kurt-Warner-s-top-five-QBs-entering-2019

 

1. Tom Brady

2. Drew Brees

3. Patrick Mahomes

4. Aaron Rodgers

5. Ben Roethlisberger

 

Not everyone is on the Colts-Hype Bandwagon yet.  haha

 

Seriously, is his list that unreasonable?  Anyone with an ounce of a football IQ can make a completely legitimate argument that any QB in that top 5 list deserves to be there.  

 

And he can not have Luck on his top 5 list and still believe the Colts can be a really good team this year.

 

The things that people get slighted over are comical.

I don’t think it’s much if an insult to say Luck is 6-8 on a list of top QBs. 

 

Thats where been on many lusts for much of his career.  Somewhere between 4-8.    And I’m fine with that.

 

We all hope Luck has a great 2019 and maybe next year he’s top-5 on most lists.

That is why I started this thread a week ago as I felt Andrew did need to improve a few metrics to get to that elite level (Top 5). As much as Antonio Brown was good, Big Ben would drop them in a bread basket sometimes, not only to AB but also to JuJu. I feel fine with that list. However, I do think a lot of drops on well thrown balls early on in the season affected Luck's numbers as well.

That is what I thought as well. I went back and read it. This would amount to not only smearing one's character but also getting the facts of the story the smear is based on wrong.

 

Besides, that is out of line for this discussion anyways.

That makes more sense.  Kurt Warners marriage was a big part of his story i thought.

I didn't say it was unreasonable or that I was slighted by it.

 

I'm just pointing out that he hasn't jumped on the Colts bandwagon like a lot of talking heads.

 

As I pointed out earlier, Luck is 2nd in odds to win MVP behind Mahomes.  The Hype-Train is chugging along.  haha

I think that 42 YO Cheatin’ Tom shouldn’t be on the list.  If it’s for 2019, my list goes:

1) Mahomes

2)  Brees 

3) Luck

4) Wilson

5) Rodgers/Mayfield

    • we are in a division that likes to run too.   the titans and texans ranked 7th and 8th in rushing yards, while the colts and jaguars were 19th and 20th.  that was down year for the jaguars, the previous year they were top 5
    • People love to prognosticate. My crystal ball broke so I don't have any insight into the future, but Ballard is using particular criteria (data) that has shown to be better predictors than merely guessing. Let's watch to see whether his approach to dealing with the unknown is better than other teams. I think we will be surprised.
    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....
