    But they've had some great talents over the years: Freeney, Mathis, Bob Sanders, Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison, Dallas Clark, Joseph Addai, Jeff Saturday...

    Luck is the real deal.

    He kept them in that game until the adjustments we made finally sealed the deal for us.
    And their O-line is even worse than ours: at least we have Yanda and KO.
    And their receivers dropped even more passes than ours did; at least ours made the catches enough times when they needed to the most.

    I missed this the 1st time I skimmed your post.

    Can't believe you actually compared Luck to Leaf.

Luck is going to be a great QB, just don't have a lot of pieces around him right now.
    , and I think he played well in this game for what it was.

    The truth is no one knows. I guess we will just have to come back to this thread two years from now.

    In Andrew Luck's first season, he has already surpassed Ryan Leaf's career totals in TDs, completions and passing yards, but still has fewer passing attempts and half of the interceptions, and is way behind in temper tantrums.

    Actually we lucked out. Their o-line was worse than ours with backups to backups playing. That's how Kruger got 2.5
    sacks.

    This is one game we actually won in the trenches.

    Skimming his posts is the only way to walk away not irritated.

    Luck is the real deal, but he's not there yet. Gonna take some time for him. Today was going to be tough for him to do well.

    It's not like Mark Sanchez, who looked overmatched the minute he stepped onto a football field.

    Andrew Luck is gonna be a top five QB in due time. He's like a thinking man's Ben Roethlisberger.

    It's a credit to Luck that the Colts made it to the playoffs despite a complete lack of talent at all 3 levels. Football Outsiders (who I trust immensely, although I appreciate that they aren't without fault and shouldn't be taken as gospel) rank them as the worst 11-5 team ever and as the 25th best team in the league. The reason they made the playoffs was due to two things: luck (small L) and Luck (big L), who engineered more game-winning drives to pull out close games than any quarterback ever. His poise and awareness in the pocket is probably the best I've seen in a young QB.

    The Colts' success this year with such a lack of talent gives me no doubt that he'll be a top 5 QB for years to come.

    I think Luck compares favorably with big Jen, he can get out of the pocket and extend plays, and make good things happen, but is also prone to making mistakes and had issues with his completions this year. To his credit though, a lot was asked of him, he didn't have the best of supporting casts, his team is very average in talent overall, with one or two really good players to help him out. Will he be as succsesfull as Jen has been in this league? I'm not so sure. It really depends on Indi's new GM, and how well they draft through the next few years, because they don't have the defense or a dominate run game that Jen has benefited from. They are going to have to be a lot more aggressive with Luck and ask him to win more games than not early on, instead of simply not asking him to mess things up like the Steelers did with Jen, the Ravens did with Flacco, and even the Patriots did with Tom Lady early on.
