This comes to mind when you said that. I don't think I've looked at many games yet and compared. Each situation is unique to say the least.
That's it exactly.

I don't put myself through that torture. There's so many variables you can't just say well they're doing it so why can't we.

I'm happy for Luck and the Colts. Their situation there with Pagano is very inspiring.

Andrew Luck and RGIII is going to be compared a lot this year, not just here, but in the media and in the league. Why? Because they went #1 and #2 in the draft. So, it makes sense people are going to compare. Just sayin'.....

Yeah I get that. People just taking it to the extreme though, as usual. We knew they were both going to be special. Is anyone surprised that Luck is playing well?

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

No, its not surprising. What is surprising is that at the beginning of the year, 99.9% of people felt the team that Shanahan had built around RG3 for the past 2 years was superior to the talent Luck had in Indy. Now that has been proven false. Wonder how much of it actually has to do with arranging talent, than to actual coaching of your players, control, discipline and management during the games. Just really stinks we are still in neutral, even though the NFCE is ripe for the taking right now, or at least ripe for the not being in the damn cellar for the umpeenth straight year.

Not to overuse the injuries excuse but the Colts are still trotting all of their opening day starters out there on offense (with the exception of Donald Brown) to support Luck. Do you think Luck & the Colts would be as successful without Wayne, Fleener and whoever their starting RT is?

I'm with Matty, can we not compare every situation out there to ours since each one is different? I'm kinda looking forward to this Sunday just putting it on the Red Zone channel and enjoying an afternoon of stress free football.

I'll be doing just that this weekend while watching the Dallas/Eagles game.

I'm an Eagles fan this weekend only.

I was gonna say it sure would be interesting to see if they lost Wayne for the season and a few other key guys.

Yes, and then I think about the Miami Dolphins, Titans, Saints, Rams, Seahawks, Bucs, Cadinals, Bengals and Raiders all having a better record than us, and I'm right back in the dumps again.

So this season is injuries, ok. Got it. So next season, its gonna be the guys that got injured need a year or two to get back to 100%. Okay. Then what?

It's not just injuries. It's a mix of all. Injuries, shitty talent, poor coaching, capgate.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Helu is done. Orakpo is done. Carriker is done. Fred Davis is done. Garcon's injury won't heal up quick enough for him to play anytime soon. Then there's the secondary problem. D. Hall, Josh Morgan, Madieu Williams, and Reed Doughty are all second string talent. Where Carriker has been replaced, Jarvis Jenkins doesn't resemble the player who crashed the entire offensive lines in the 2011 preseason. He's just a body on the defensive line taking up space.

Evan Royster showed flashes of greatness last season, but his 6.0 yard per carry average has decreased to 3.8 yards a run. Maybe he just needs more touches. Josh Morgan is okay, but given his contract, I expected more of him so I'll suggest he's under performing. Leonard Hankerson has been so-so. I can't overlook dropped TD passes in the end zone. Santana Moss has been Santana Moss. Logan Paulsen has surprised. He reminds me a little of Don Warren.
