THANK YOU!

It drives me crazy when I hear how Luck "brought the Colts back from the dead" yada yada yada.

Here's the history of the Colts:

- Sucked ass after Unitas.
- Their years of incompetence left them with a high draft pick to get Peyton.
- They rode the hall of famer to 11 playoff appearances in 12 years. They won 8 division titles in that time.
- When their star goes down for one year how does the storied franchise respond?? 2-14.
- Their incompetence left them with a high draft pick to get Luck.

Wash rinse repeat.

Ask Colt fans if they feel GUILTY for having Peyton for 12 years, then getting Luck for the next decade. All the Colts know how to do is suck, and draft HOF QBs. You can quote me.

Bottom line is, Luck has less to work with than RGIII does, and is asked to do more than RGIII is. Would he be causing that many TOs if he had a running game like we do? Who knows. Does Luck have a Trent Williams or a Montgomery blocking for him? Not hardly. Our 3rd string TE(paulsen) has outperformed all of their TEs. (including Fleener)

Remember, that Colts defense is one that gave up 352 rushing yards the other week so it's not like that defense is carrying the team. It's not.
Pretty much sums it up. Luck has a below average line and outside of Wayne they really don't have a quality NFL wr. He's done a really nice job in his rookie year IMO.

But this guy Hilton that they drafted really looks like he's going to be a player.

Perfect post; here is your defense. If I was them I would break out how bad last year was.....their offense was much worse than the Skins; above is how u counter it -"pfft one bleeping year of bad vs 20 year, two decades of complete inccompetence"

The Bert Jones years were pretty good. But that is nitpicking. Great post.

The thinking from Indy's perspective is Luck has brought the franchise back from the dead and turned them around. ButI hear ya.
They had one losing season in the last ten years!!!

False. Beside Reggie Wayne, that's not true. (Gonzalez, Garcon, CLark are all gone)

Colts defense ranked #26. Ours is ranked #28. We both give up the same points per game at 24.7. Much better? ROFL. If anything, our defenses are equal.

Re: I'm Going On INDY Radio To Discuss Luck vs RGIII!

Chico and scowan have good points. Another good point is the yards per rush that RG3 has, almost 7 yards a rush, passes for over 3300 yards his rookie year in a run first offense. 4 picks on the year. ONLY 4. Another good point is that RG3's lowest accuracy game is vs. pittsburgh, where there were 10 drops credited to the WR's. He was 57.7% in that game. He has a higher completion percentage than luck's average in his WORST game. Lets not even talk about the yards per reception, at RG3's 8.2 vs Lucks 6.6.

I think even with the game and a half missed, he runs away with the award. And the two games missed might even work in his favor. (as in, think about what his stats would look like had he played in those two games type thinking!!!!)

Re: I'm Going On INDY Radio To Discuss Luck vs RGIII!

I'll post the podcast tomorrow, Guy. I did, however, raise the point that Robert has had line-up changes on both sides of the ball, i.e. Davis, Rak, Carriker, Pierre Garcon for a good chunk of the season. Also pointed out the defense just stared to come together of late.

I gently shot down the idea that Luck inherited less talent.
