Hey man, I was one of the first, maybe the first, to recognize that the Colts might pass on Luck for RGIII. It has been a concern of mine for weeks now. I'm not trying to "pee in everybody's Cheerios" but I am a realist, brother.Why do you have to pee in everybody's Cheerios, NEO?
Yes Om, I know. And I am excited about that, trust me. But I have a definite preference and while Luck is growing in my estimation, I have a definitive preference for Griffin and nothing he or Luck have done in the last 3 or 4 weeks as made so much as a dent in that preference.Oh, I think there's plenty of reason to get excited.
Either RG3 or Andrew Luck is going to be the Redskins new quarterback.
Mike, don't get me wrong. I think Luck has earned it and I believe he will be a great QB in this league. What I don't see with Luck is electricity and I want some. I want that ability to turn a busted play into a back breaker for the other team as has happened so many times to us over the years in the wilderness. I want RGIII's smile, quiet swagger and his polite "Yes sir" and "No sir" responses. I want this former Olympic probable, the son of Army Sargents, in the Nation's Capital and in a Burgundy and Gold uni.I agree, luck feels like he could be a Ryan leaf type without the meltdowns. He just never has impressed me when I watched him play and seems that it is all just given to him instead of being earned.

Sorry man, was just giving you a hard time (hence the smiley).Hey man, I was one of the first, maybe the first, to recognize that the Colts might pass on Luck for RGIII. It has been a concern of mine for weeks now. I'm not trying to "pee in everybody's Cheerios" but I am a realist, brother.
You aren't ignorant, just paranoid like I am and most other Skins fans have been conditioned to be over the past 20 years.Im just not sold in him. This has an eery feeling of the leaf/manning draft to me. Call me paranoid, call me ignorant but I don't think Luck is going to be anywhere as successful in the pros as he was at Stanford.
Just my. 02 and ill leave it at that.

Andrew Luck, 27-31 (87.1%), 347 yds (11.2) 2 TD, 1 INT, QB rating 195.96 (NCAA); 121.37 (NFL)
...[t]he Cardinal had 590 yards of offense -- nearly 200 more than Oklahoma State -- got another stellar game from Luck before he heads off to the NFL and ran over Oklahoma State's defense behind Stepfan Taylor.
They just couldn't finish it off.
Luck calmly led Stanford 63 yards over the final 2:35 of regulation to set up a chance at winning its second BCS bowl game in two years. Instead, Williamson missed in regulation, again in overtime and was left sobbing in front of his locker while his coaches and teammates tried to shoulder some of the blame.
"In the end, we lost, and I'm as much to blame as anyone," Luck said.
Taylor ran for 177 yards and a pair of scores. Luck was his usual steady self, hitting 27 of 31 passes for 347 yards and two touchdowns with an interception...
I think this is the point that's being missed when many folks around the league's fanbases mention that he isn't working out for anyone. That might be his camp's policy officially, but if he REALLY wanted to workout for someone he would.Hard not to interpret this as a pretty clear message RG3's camp is not in a hurry to play for Indy. If they really, truly wanted to go #1, they'd find a way to carve out a couple hours of our man's time for Irsay & Co.
Guess you could make the case Luck was "mediocre or poor" against Oregon....his whole team was. I didn't see any of it live, so all I have to go on is the numbers and reporting. Anyone see the whole thing?
Luck: 27-41 (65.8%), 256 yds (6.2), 3 TD, 2 INT, QB Rating 132.7 (NCAA), 87.0 (NFL)
