I hope Luck doesn't work out.. after screwing Peyton and the 2011 ticket holders and fans by sandbagging I think that's all Indy deserves.

Yeah, but they looked like Tebow threw them compared to the beauty and perfection of Andrew Luck.

The ONLY reason for RG3s long balls (uh-huh-huh...balls) is because of his scrambling and run ability outside the pocket.
Here is where I would normally warn you that crack kills, but I can only assume that you are in a methenphetamine dominated region of the country.

so yeah...lay off the meth, bro.

Not really sure about "screwing Peyton". What choice did they really have? They were on the hook for something like 50 million (salary + roster bonus) and his health was really up in the air. I don't really think that's screwing him. That's business. They would have absolutely crippled their salary cap and buying power if they brought him back. You could argue that the contract was terrible to offer in the first place but that was wrote up before the situation they were in.

People who vote Luck over RG3 are hiding their racism behind the veil of a blind poll. What they're really saying is that a black can never be as good of a quarterback as a white. My proof of this racism is the fact that RG3 is clearly the better quarterback. He sets the standard for passing QB's with a phenomenal rating.

I voted Luck, but Russell Wilson is my favourite and who I will be rooting for. Dude is awesome.

In the long run, Luck. Right now, RG3.
This.

Do not look forward to playing against RG3 for the foreseeable future. If RG3 stays healthy/modifies his play style a but it could change. I think he's better than Luck, I just doubt his durability running so much.

Hell, it was a no brainer decision for the Colts. The best decision they could have possibly made.

The Indy fans are the luckiest in the NFL. Most teams spend years hoping to get another franchise qb and the Colts just spent one year in purgatory and got a get out of hell card free.

RG3 doesn't throw downfield with accuracy and heat? Go home... you drunk.

Sure his legs opens things up, but he still has to make the throws.

eh, if it were me I'd keep Peyton and have drafted Luck. Obviously, it's worked out nicely, but you know, if they had kept Manning, they could've traded him at season's end and gotten a king's ransom.

It's a lot easier, and takes less QB talent to make a throw to a busted up play when he scrambles outside the pocket. Don't have to be near as accurate, receivers are more open.

That's why he's not as good a Luck as a QB or passer.

He's a run first QB, Luck is a supremely skilled passing QB and will go down as one of the greats.

Is anybody seriously trying to make the arugment that RG3 is a better passer than Luck? REALLY?
