Andrew Luck

Ok sooo can anyone tell me what's wrong with him ? I know his back I believe was an injury of his, is that what's still bothering him ? It's sad to see a young guy with all the potential in the world being held back by injury, won't be long until Indy gives up ? Should I say it ?!?! Imagine a healthy Luck in Shanahans system !! Lol 😳Who knows by next year maybe he becomes available via trade..jk jk but seriously is this guy that injured ??

His back is injured from literally carrying 52 players on his back to the AFC Championship game a few years ago. That'd put a strain on anyone's discs.

The Colts ruined this guy. He was extremely unlucky to be drafted by such an inept team. No O-line; has to throw like 50 times a game. Not a recipe for success.

Its crazy when you consider the protections that have been put into the game to protect QBs specifically. He needs to spend some time learning how to protect himself
His o-line sucks
he was suppose to be the next elway. All i see is a better version of alex smith. I will say that if you put him on the raiders, he would be a top 3 QB

It's amazing what a difference 2 1/2 seconds make... Luck has a DT in his lap before he gets the ball from center. Kinda reminds me of a few 49er offensive lines...

One of the most if not the most overrated qb in the league
Yes. Never thought much. Too many picks.
Kyle and Luck could probably do some great things together, but that will never happen. No trade ... not until he's used up, or they just continue to ride him into the ground until he retires. He has had to compensate for a weak supporting cast around him and that has and will continue to take a toll on him. Assuming we can't find a FQB on our own I'd love to have him, but that ship sailed a long time ago. Maybe the Colts will get their butts in gear and put a team around him that can help him get to a Super Bowl. Time will tell.

Just a ridiculous claim.

Ryan Grigson happened. Gave him receivers but no OL, no run game and no defense. Indy has done their best to completely ruin him from the beginning.


Can only imagine what might have been had they given the job to Bruce Arians instead and hired a different GM.

Agree. This is really a shame, because Luck is legit a top tier player but that front office completely dropped the ball in building the team. Put Luck on any of the other AFC South teams and he'd be rolling. Texans, Titans, even the Jags have rosters that are ready to go. Colts roster looks like a train wreck in comparison.

How long before he is permanently David Carr'd?

Not really a fair comparison - Luck is still considered a top 10 QB. If you asked teams to pick a QB to build around long term, I bet he'd be in the top 3 with Rodgers and Carr. He came back from injuries and almost duplicated his 2014 performance (put up 4240 passing yards and 31 TDs in 15 games with an almost identical passer rating and higher QBR).

The Colts don't have a running game or defense, but they're consistently threats to make the playoffs. Part of that is that they're in a weak division, but Luck has also carried that team. If having no offensive line hasn't ruined Luck yet, I can't see him becoming David Carr. He's still an elite QB, but his stats are deflated because his supporting cast (and offensive line in particular) is trash. He's more talented than guys like Prescott and Cousins, but they have much longer to throw the ball and better targets to throw to.
