Luck is on pace for 4,000+ passing yards, 23 TD's and 16 ints, along with a 56% completion percentage he is having a fine rookie season
No, I watched the drops in slow motion, most of those "drops" were thrown behind them and they credited two "drops" when the receivers got blown up. That's not a drop; that's a standard incompletion. You could even argue that RG3 didnt "throw" them open enough, and thats why they got blown up. He has work to do, man, he's not this demi-God that the media is making him out to be. Been saying this.
He is actually online for 18 passing TDs and 18 INTs. That is a fine season for a rookie QB but not for the number one pick and most "NFL ready QB in history."
Looked at your way, RGIII is on pace for 28 TDs and 6 INTS, 67% completion percentage and 4518 total yards. That is why RGIII, not Luck will be the rookie of the year and it is why there really is no comparison of the two QBs. RGIII is far better right now. I think that gap will widen. I think Lucks numbers will come down and RGIII will stay on this pace or even a little better. Luck gets passing yards because he is chucking it more than any rookie QB in history..... He should get yards. RGIII is by far the more efficient QB...
In case you really aren't a troll (bull***), I suggest you read this: http://espn.go.com/espn/story/_/id/8...rt-griffin-iii.
Luck plays in the most vertical offense in the NFL -- and, no, that isn't his fault. He's "chucking it" because he has the ability to and because it will speed up his development -- and Arians knows this (it worked out pretty well for Peyton). That's not even to mention the abysmal line play and run game. If RGIII could throw 35-40 times a game, his stats would nosedive. And they may just yet. Even though ESPN's QBR backs up the statistical argument in Luck's favor, I'll suggest to anyone who still doubts to watch the Green Bay game again. The young man passes the eyeball test with flying colors, and it wouldn't exactly be a leap of faith to say he will be a top-three QB for a long, long time.
By the way, wasn't it the consensus that Washington had the *much* better team going into this season? Yeah, about that record...
I won't take away from RGIII, but there's no way in hell I regret the Colts' choice.
Green Bay is not a good defense. I had them in fantasy league and quickly dumped them. They are a bit better than last year but that is the biggest problem Green Bay has, the defense. Chicago is a good defense and you saw how they ate Luck up. I think RGIII would have better stats than Luck no matter how often they throw it because he adds a different dimension with his ability to run and he is just a more accurate passer with a much stronger arm than Luck. QBR is a ******** stat that is the only one you can find that ranks Luck high. I have seen no one but ESPN use it and announcers and television analysts do not use it. You have to be a top three QB once to be there for a long time. Luck has to be a top 25 QB first. RGIII is already in the top five. Yes, Washington has the much better team and they play in a tough division. I don't regret the Colts choice. I wouldn't want to have to see RGIII play behind that miserable line knowing it will take years to get better. Luck is not the choice that I regret. Bad franchises and the Colts are a bad franchise except for the Peyton years, always break down the team to rebuild. Good franchise just don't do that. They may come down a little for a year or two and then they are right back chasing a Super Bowl. Teams like New England, Green Bay, Pittsburgh and Baltimore stay close to the top all of the time. The reason is management. The Giants always tend to field a good team. The Colts are a mess right now and it is going to be years to rebuild it. By the time they get a defense and a line and replace the 25 or so players they need to replace, Luck will be long gone from the scene (and so will I) to be replaced by the next "sure thing".
With all your lies and make believe you provide in these threads, you'll have to excuse us for taking zero stock in what you say. Now if you try to back yourself up with a radio show that nobody else in the world heard, or link us to articles that don't even mention what you say they do, or you link us to other anonymous blogs, that doesn't help your case Blu. Lol
Mods: This poster is talking me from thread to thread disrupting those threads. He continues to call me a liar when it isn't true. I have stayed civil with him through it all. I am a tough old bird but this calling names is out of hand and it is against the forum rules. I try hard to stay in those rules. This poster does not. Please do something about it..
I have about given up on the forum (around and around and around we go) but just for the record
1. We have played some good teams. Even if the teams aren't very good, like I have said for years "when you are having problems in any facet of your game just play the Redskins". Having an 0-fer season like Detroit? Play the Redskins and get your first win. Having problems with your defense? Play the Redskins like the Giants did a few years back when they won the SB and turn your season around. Having problems with your QB? Play the Redskins and they will make your QB look like a HOF player!
Of course a lot of this is changing with a new front office and a new coaching staff, but change takes time. Half of our roster is scrubs.
Which takes me to point 2.
2. We have lost half of our defense to injuries or suspensions. This especially hurt us with the loss of Orakpo and Kerrigan.
3. Lastly, we still have a rookie QB. He has done a lot better then I think anyone here in DC could have predicted, but he still has made mistakes. Oh yeah, and he has an OC who is hell bent on running a GD triple option
Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.
You see the difference in you trolling this entire forum and me trolling you, is that I don't make up blatant lies that are so easily proven or disproven. Other than my comments that were obviously facetious, not me swearing by them as facts. Me going from thread to thread is just to get some clarity on some things you said...
- where are the hundreds of articles predicting MVPs and Super Bowls for RG3, not the ones that merely say he's playing great so far
- where is this radio show that had a coach make such denigrating remarks about Luck
- where are these betting lines that fluctuate so greatly from any other source that enables you to be up 5-2 on picking against the Jags each week
- why do your cherry pick stats count and others don't (QBR, NYTimes)
- you keep telling the few that are still paying attention around here that EVERYBODY thinks RG3 is the better player, the rookie of the year, and yet there have been more articles posted on here favoring Luck.
Yeah the moderators could do something about it, but there's only one way to get more posters to come back to the Colts forum and ultimately not leave PD altogether. I'll give you a hint, it ain't getting rid of me. Lol.

For the record, and for me to post on topic without agenda...
I liken the real Luck-RG3 debate (not the one on here but for general fans) to the debate that always went on with Manning-Brady. Neither Luck or RG3 can hold Manning or Brady's jock yet. But when debating who's better, you couldn't really go wrong saying one or the other. The Manning argument was all the stats, for Brady it was the Super Bowls.
With Luck and RG3, the same principles apply yet because they're only 7 and 8 games into their careers, surrounded by completely different circumstances, teams, coaches, divisions, conferences and on and on, it's even harder to say one or the other. Just like the stats and Super Bowl arguments, you can pick the style, the flash, the stats of RG3, or you can pick the guy whose play and command of a team with 60% of the players that are new to the team that completely revamped their front office, coaching staff, and offensive and defensive systems. So even the 40% of holdovers are having to learn new schemes new positions. And on top of that, their leader is battling leukemia. Not a lot of precedent out there for this years Colts. And yet they're 4-3 in the thick of a playoff spot, regardless of how many games are left to play, which very few fans or experts would have imagined at any point this season.
So arguments can be made for Manning-Brady and Luck-RG3. The only way someone would be wrong is saying "without question, so and so is better than the other." Because there are A LOT of questions in this debate.

He's asking for mods help, really?
Ugh, if they aren't doing anything about his retarded *** they aren't going to do anything about bunt, that's for sure. I haven't went off like travmil did, but to be honest I've been milling about the idea of just abandoning PD. I can't avoid this complete ****ing idiot even on ignore. It's so abudantly blatant what he's doing and nothing is done, for MONTHS.
SOMEONE needs to grow a nutsack and do what's necessary to keep people from jumping ship. It's already happened to one contributor who's been on the site for years. Can't imagine how many people stopped reading this place that never bother to say anything.
I'd really like to go back to not posting and just observing but until you stop trolling and lying...
Travmil's sig explained very well why you should be banned. It's a set of rules you're breaking.
If you're aware you're doing it, you're a troll. If you're not aware you're just the dumbest human being on earth. Either way, nobody should have to be subjected to such stupidity.
