    ???

    Again... I don't mind it. I said it was just an assumption.

    And technically I was half wrong- which still makes me wrong.

    Off the nuts, please.

    There was one time Deuce thought he might be wrong, but he was mistaken.

    I think Luck is going to be great, i mean seriously, what QBs nowadays are going to fail with all this arena football type rules and stuff. Even Cam Newton did awesome.

    This rule officially doesn't count for Gabby Gabbert

    I don't know if I have posted in this thread or not but this is my opinion on the Colts/Luck situation.

    The Colts would make the dumbest move in the history of the NFL if they did not take Luck. While he will probably never live up to his hype, IF they passed on him, and he was anywhere close to as good as Manning, no one would forget it.

    They have basically nothing to lose if he does not pan out. Indy knows how to make passers. The backlash by not taking Luck is far greater than what would happen if he was a bust.

    IF Indy did not want him, they should have made it known long ago and not come one step short of announcing it to the world that he will be a Colt.

    Indy knows how to make passers? Indy did little to nothing for manning beside give him the reigns... He's the sole reason they won... What did they last year in passers? Lol

    Kerry Collins and Painter are not your typical franchise QBs. They made a team around Manning too, contrary to popular belief, Manning is/was not the Indianapolis Colts.

    Like I said earlier, they are set up for Luck, and know how to make him successful.

    They did TONS for Manning. Harrison, Wayne, James, Clark, that amazing line he played behind the majority of his career. They spent recent picks on receivers and running backs as well. The Colts gave Manning more help than probably any QB ever and I doubt many people will argue that.

    I agree, but the way I read your comment was that they produced manning, they built it around him, that regime did... And now manning will be gone as well as that regime... It's hard to say how the new one will follow the exact plan by the previous one for manning.
