Hat's off to ya. The few highlights i've seen, Luck looked like a pro QB. At this point that is all you can ask. Could be the Colts (and you) landed a gem there.


He seems very poised and not at all intimidated by playing with the big boys in the NFL.


So you are going to insist on calling the Rams D "the big boys in the NFL"? :-D
Luck always struck me as someone who was cool under pressure. Now you have me excited about this kid. For football's sake ;-D

There is that little thing to consider. StL helped. Still, plenty to praise.

38-3 Good Guys as we wind down the 4th. It felt good to watch an NFL game on a Sunday that wasn't a rerun.

Big boys yes, I didn't say "good" though, lol! I'm sure Luck will be fine when he has to play against a real team! :-b

Bradford was okay in very limited action, the Rams as a whole still have a long way to go, not sure how they will do or what pieces are still missing, but I think Fisher will get the best outta what he has but may need another year or two to get this team up to snuff.

Hope you are right, Rams start to improve starting week two. :-b Hope Fish doesn't have any tricks up his sleeve for his former DC Schwartz.

Anybody still think RGIII is the rookie QB to own? Today was so fun to watch. If, a big if, the line can give him time, Luck is going to excel from day one.

I have always liked pocket QBs over runners. RG III is still in a better situation to succeed. If he can be accurate, he can be the better QB. Luck will be asked to do more on a game by game basis, so while RG3 may have better outcomes, Luck could have to throw the ball a ton.
So one is left to as oneself: "Self, do you feel Lucky" And draft accordingly.

Love to see the Cowboys looking average as usual - 1 playoff win in 15 years and Jerry Jones doesn't get the message that he's an idiot as a GM - what is with the arrogance that just because he's a successful businessman he assumes that makes him qualified to be and NFL GM - there's a reason why your team keeps falling on its face since ya showed Jimmy Johnson the door. Any minor successes the team has enjoyed is in spite of you, not because of you - big difference!

Somebody is in midseason form. But I guess hating Cowpies is a year round passion. ;-D
