    The media has been so used to gushing over Manning and sucking his rod all these years I think they just transitioned all that to Luck.

    You guys aren't factoring in one thing here. Manning is an all time great, and Luck is a great young QB who will likely become a Pro Bowler someday. Just sayin. It's not like the media loves those guys for no reason. They're pretty good you know?

    I realize. Just find it annoying how much many in the media (Peter King is one of the worst) fall all over themselves for certain guys. Like Manning. Was Favre before his drama queen retirement crap and cock shots.

    I didn't see the Colts game so I can't speak to it specifically. Maybe he did get lucky. But generally speaking, I think a lot of Titan fans opinions of Andrew Luck are heavily clouded by two-tone blue glasses and wishful thinking. If you think the guy just got lucky all season long (as a rookie) then I believe you're fooling yourself. Maybe he's not going to the HoF and sure he's probably overhyped by the media. But the kid's damn good and he'll be a thorn in the side of AFC-S defenses for years to come.

    I think we all know we'd trade QBs with the Colts in a heartbeat.

    Yes it took a bit of luck for Luck not to have that ball picked off, but what about the effort by Reggie Wayne? This guy is still among the elite WR's. Sucks we have to play that guy 2x a year.

    Nope. I missed all football this weekend. Haven't even seen highlights. But like I said, maybe he got lucky on a specific play. That happens. But to suggest he's not a very good QB is just ridiculous IMO. And we've been hearing that from a lot of Titan fans ever since Luck stepped on the field. It's starting to remind me of the inferiority complex Texans fans used to have toward us before they got good.
