Andrew Luck 

Post#1 » by Starkiller » Mon Sep 9, 2013 11:48 am

Is the GOAT. Colts are world beaters. Ask any Colts fan. What I learned after week one is.....

Andrew Luck is better than Aaron Rodgers because he was drafted #1, while Rodgers slipped to the 20's. Luck was a starter as a rookie while Rodgers sat the bench. He's also better because he beat the Raiders and Rodgers lost to the 49ers, and because Rodgers lost to the Colts last year.

Now that I got the hostility out of the way.....Luck or Rodgers?

That's what I said, but unfortunately, they aren't.

He's not better yet, but he will be.

One of the reasons why Aaron Rodgers is so good is because he sat on the bench behind Brett Farve. He was taught by and learned from Brett Farve, who has played more than 20 years in the NFL. Brett knows almost anything about football there is to know.

I don't disagree that Luck can't be as good as Rodgers with time, it's just Luck is not as good RIGHT NOW.

Wait 3-5 years down the line & Luck WILL BE the best QB in the game

No logical football fan is going to say that or make comparisons based on such nonsense. I get the feeling you're exaggerating a bit....

That said, you can't go wrong either way. I'd go with Rodgers, but not by a landslide.

Rodgers might be the greatest QB of all time. The only things against him is starting at 24 and not having the greatest comeback numbers.

Rodgers doesn't have a lot of comebacks because his team hasn't had a whole lot of 4th quarter deficits to overcome.

And when he has overcome them, the defense gave them right back and left little to no time for another comeback.

Luck doesn't belong in the same breath as Rodgers. He's not a top 5 QB.

Look at all the terrible throws he makes. Look at all the batted balls he gets despite being so big and agile. Look at how many throws he really makes his receivers work for unnecessarily. He is probably the best downfield thrower in the league with the possible exception of Rodgers, but he's not close to top 10 on shorter routes.

His potential is certainly very high, and I do love his knack for pulling rabbits out of hats. He's a better runner than Rodgers. But the overall package is not even a competition IMO. Not yet anyways.

It is going to be fun seeing him throw with an actual offensive line. He has been running for his life for years, and I was afraid the Colts were going to get him killed. Last year, our backup got hurt, his backup got hurt, I thought we were going to have to play the punter at QB. JK We drafted two stud OG, and we have a first round center coming back from injury. Whether Kelly can stay healthy remains to be seen. We also added veteren OL depth with starting experience at both guard and tackle. If Luck is fully recovered, he will finally have the line he deserved. Thank the lord we have a new coach and GM. Luck hasn't played healthy for quire a while, and people forget how good he was healthy. It was painful to watch him throw deep when he was so hurt he had to push it down the field. Even when hurt, his numbers were good, and he won games. Talking about deep throwers, I have to bring up Big Ben. The guy is underrated. I still couldn't believe my eyes when he played bombs away against the Jags in the playoffs. I was blown away. He was hitting guys in stride, and dropping things right over the shoulder.
