Andrew Luck final throws a football...

Recommended Posts

All jokes aside, Luck will have a difficult time picking up the new scheme since he has a new system.  If he comes back and all the logic spewed around here, the colts should be happy with about the same record as last year.

That's an NFL caliber throw. 

Oman is drooling, wishing he was the Titans QB.

A non injured Luck is far and away better than Mariota. 

Let's see Mariota in an offense where he is set up to succeed.

So far? Hard to argue against that. But we don't fully know what we have in Mariota yet so maybe that perception changes before long.

As is a 28 year old Peyton Manning. However, the chances that we truly ever see either again are about the same imo. Luck may play but he will never be completely healthy or full-go like before the injury

Andrew luck will be 29 when the season starts with a busted shoulder. 

 

Andrew luck in his first two seasons was not as productive as mariota. He just wasn’t. I’m not sure it’s arguable. It’s not even close how much better mariota was the first two seasons. 

 

Too many people sucking lucks cock for the 7 gwd’s as a rookie. When on two of those I don’t think he threw a pass and 4 others the teams won on long screens. 

 

Lucks third year year was off the charts good... but then he had 3 average to good  seasons and then missed a season and a half where he hasn’t even thrown a ball. 

 

Give mariota an iota of consistency and a coaching staff that builds around players like luck has and I don’t think it’s a silly conclusion to come to that possibly the most efficient and productive QB in college history - who also set loads of records his first two years - will be a 40 td / low interception guy.

Since we do not know how much Luck can recover it is pre-mature to guess how good he will be.  Manning with less physical skill (his arm was diminished) was able to be effective with more maturity in the right system.  However, a big part of Luck's game is using his strong arm (he was never a West Coast guy) and occasionally his legs.  If he can transform to more of a West Coast QB he could be pretty good.  It has to be doubtful his arm will fully recover where he has the same velocity he had before.

 

Mariota IMO is more of a WC QB who can throw real accurate short to medium passes and is being put into a system that exemplifies that skill set.  He still has the arm for the deep outs and long passes but his forte is going to be the Shanahan/Gruden system.

I said early on that Luck was done and would be a shell of himself. But he was a generational talent who the Colts wasted with crap OL.

Luck was good and even great at times and it helped that he feasted on a week division but he has been living on his potential for awhile now.
