Andrew Luck - QB - Player

Owner Jim Irsay admitted Saturday "things have always pointed toward" the Colts selecting Stanford QB Andrew Luck with the No. 1 pick, but insisted the team reamins "open minded."

The Colts are loath to publicly lock onto Luck, but this is the closest they've come to confirming what many have long suspected. The way things are trending, it would be a curveball of Sandy Koufax proportions if Indy called Robert Griffin III's name on draft night.

After all the twist and turns Irsay has done to the Colts by eliminating everybody except the mascot (Blue.. better find some wood to knock on).. nothing he does now will surprise me. I'm just gonna wait until the first regular season game and see who's all on the field.. then go from there.

I've never actually believed there was any chance we take Griffin. No knock on Griffin, I think he'll be a good NFL QB. I've just never read or seen anything that has led me to believe we would take him over Luck

There are so many thngs that flavor real or imagined ties between Manning and Luck..and Indianapolis...and Irsay..

When you look at where our new coaches are from....that also suggests a Flacco-like (in style), consistent pocket passer..

with a pedigree of the classic NFL QB

Hopefully Irsay pulls a fast one and drafts RG3

And thank God, you have absolutely nothing to do with the decision making process of the Colts.

Sounds great

I like Griffin but Im going Luck, if Irsay drafts Luck he runs a big risk of further alienating the Colts fan base and p****** alot of fans off (even more), Id accept Griffin and welcome him but Luck is ready to start and produce, sure RGIII probably will but, Luck ran a pro style offense

You gotta really love this. Ol' Jim is staying the headlines, but I'm sorry...I'm tiring of the drama. You will never convince me that after all this time, they have to evaluate this and keep an open mind. Are we that stupid to think they can't make a call yet? It worries me if that is the case! This is theater at its best. Now if they want to shock the world and select Griffin, so be it...but please don't tell me it's going to take you 3 more weeks to figure this out. I'm too old to believe that. I would really hope they're more focused on picks in the 2nd through 7th round. C'mon Jim...you don't have to tell us who it is... but don't tell us you don't know!!! Have an open mind.

I'm no mind reader here. From my perspective, Jay305 was just being sarcastic & making a joke. I thought it was funny myself. It made me chuckle anyway. Well done Jay305!!!

Funny how on QB Camp on ESPN, Gruden has Luck break down plays, coverage, and reads. When RGIII is on, they talk about socks, why the fullback pushed him in the back, and how fast his offense ran. hahaha

Potential, athleticism, and a big arm get NFL GM's what?

fired.

Yeah, but that gives us one less thing to argue about

I know, right. I've been opposed to the idea the team needs to get a deal with Luck done early, but I hadn't considered this. Surely Irsay needs to account for fan bickering in the team's decisions... :)

LOL..... I think we've passed thru all of the off-season turbulence, but I don't blame you.

I think Irsay is maybe just having a little fun with this Luck / RGIII thing, but in the end it'll be Andrew.

If he does, I would advise against purchasing any "Indy" Colts gear ... it will be a clear sign he has a Mayflower on his mind.

He misspelled the word "evil".

I read it as an abbreviation for evaluation .... or was you being cute/funny? doh!

Hmmmm...What does accuracy get GM's then?:

http://www.extremesk...47&d=1334097611

Okay you're clearly a Redskins troll so I shouldn't be giving you attention, but seeing as you can't see the site without registering, I'll just point out that you should stop being a mug. Griffin's 2011 completion, 72.4%. Andrew Luck's 2011 completion, 71.3%. Okay, Griffin's more accurate than Luck, so if we're using that to say he's a better selection, then let's cast both aside, with the first pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts select the man with 72.9% completion... um, Russell Wilson.

    • Well Doug, I’m just bored enough to play along with shenanigans & even though you’ve totally moved the goal post on what I asked you, here we go!   First, you got the answer wrong. Go back and watch the passing game quarter 1, putrid. Pittman was all out of sorts, Pascal was Pascal. They didn’t have a 1st down in the first quarter, run or pass. That’s not binary. That’s a fact.   Second, the pass to Pittman wasn’t on a RPO. I’m glad you learned a new acronym, next we will try to learn what it stands for and how it is implemented. Frank calls a play, let’s just say it’s a RPO. The players get to the line and hike the Ball…every body does the same thing run or pass, the only person who has a decision to make is the QB. He reads a conflict defender, if he steps up to play run, you pass to a predetermined receiver that was left uncovered. If he bails to cover receiver, you stick it in RB’s gut. It’s not complicated and it’s a great tool. Wentz and Frank are good at it, they were good at it in Philly as well. It’s not a check, or an audible. It’s a run play with an option to pass based off of one defender. Knowing that it is a run play 1st, and knowing that the pass to Pittman was a long developing play eliminates it being an RPO or else the linemen who most likely have been downfield before the pass, which is not allowed. Next.   Frank s the head coach. He has a whole staff that helps him scout teams, tendencies, etc. Are you suggesting that Frank and his staff didn’t have any idea what defense the Bucs would be running, or what scheme they would be utilizing to stop the run by the 3rd damn quarter? If so, I can’t help you. I’d suggest football for dummies would be a good place to start….it’s a book by the way. Next.   Frank is responsible for making the decision to pass or not because…get this…he is the play caller. Shocking revelation ain’t it? Play callers is the person that either stands on the sidelines or sits up in the box above the stands looking down onto the football field where the game of football is being played. They have these headsets they speak into that transmits to a ear piece placed in the helmet of the QB so that they can communicate during the game, it’s at this point that the play caller gives the QB the next play, or sometimes a couple plays to be ran based on how the defense aligns. Next.   Back to RPO’s…yes if he calls an RPO, he is calling a running play. In this case however, based on scouting reports & how the Bucs were aligning, he knew good and well that the R part of RPO wasn’t going to be a good option. Lastly, you don’t call an RPO every play. Frank stated 6-10 is about right per game. There are other plays called in a game. Some are passes, some are runs. If you notice that your not running, and you would like to run, you call a run play…I’ll try to slow down if needed, I know we are getting into advanced stuff here.    You call JT’s number for a couple reasons, mainly because becoming one dimensional in offense rarely works for a team over the course of a game or season. Another reason to call JT’s number is because he is really good, like really good. Like averaging 5 yards a carry on ever so terrifying Bucs D. Like completely dominating the number 1 ranked Bills D the week prior good.   What you all “defenders” are saying us that if we’re critical if his play calling in the 3rd quarter we can’t understand or appreciate his play calling in the 2nd or that we wanted him to run 26 okays straight instead of tending balanced…like in the 2nd quarter where the team scored 21 freaking points against the terrifying Bucs D.   What else might I be able toasdistbtou with tonight?      
    • I don’t suppose you’ve noticed….   But….   All your conspiracy theories have been rejected by this community.   You couldn’t have a better audience…. People here willing to give you a listen and consider your views….  Yet your rash of conspiracy theories you've posted today have all been given a huge thumbs down.     And yet you keep coming back with more…..   Hey, it’s your dime….  You get to do what you want.   Just thought I’d point out what I thought should be obvious by now….      
    • Oh look, @Btown_Coltand @EastStreet showed up with nothing positive to say because they haven't posted incessantly enough in every other thread in this forum to + about this team. Beyond boring. Go start another Frank Reich sucks thread. Lord knows we haven't heard you say it enough.
    • I'm just saying. The pressure Wentz was facing include the fact the WRs were not doing him any favors, he balled out. Winning the game is important, but Wentz did more then enough to win the game and yes imo outplayed Brady.
    • That's sort of a binary look at the situation.  But to answer the question, 100% at that point.    But I'll add further comment:   As @Moosejawcoltsaid elsewhere, this forum is getting amusing, but its always been that way.   Really binary: If you don't pile on Reich's 3rd quarter play calling, you're in favor of it.  If you say its not Frank, then you're saying its Ballard. If you don't mob pile on Grigson, then you are defending him.  If you like Fleener, then you're saying that you hate Allen.   What "defenders" are saying is that criticizing the play calling because there was a pick an a sack stopping two successful drives is ludicrous.  Not criticizing it is not the same thing as supporting the play calling.    The binary debate carried out these past few weeks is pointless.  These are the questions as I see it:   If you're Wentz, and we have had great success passing, what RPO do you choose when you see one on one coverage of 6'4" Pitt by a 5'9" FS (not even a CB)?  What do you do Btown?   Do you call JTs number against the box because you haven't run the ball to JT yet in the past 20 plays?  Where the completion will put us on the 5 yard line?  You will take a 5 yard run because we haven't had one in 20 plays?   And   When Frank is sending in the RPO, how does he know what the coverage will be when we are still in the huddle?   Why is Frank responsible for throwing the ball to Pitt or even making the decision to pass?  Both teams are basically in the huddle when he's making his RPO calls to Wentz.   Why is it even "Frank's play calling" that is the issue?  Seems to me that every time he calls an RPO, he's calling a running play.    The stat-based criticism has gotten kind of amusing.
