    Maybe the fact for the last 7 years Andrew had a mediocre team around him on offense. Less than mediocre on defense.

    If he can stay healthy this year he will tear it up and shut the critics mouths. If he stays healthy Colts win the division period!

      Brady QB Rating: 97.7
      Luck QB Rating: 98.7
      Brady: 4,355 yards 29 TDs and 11 INTs
      Luck: 4,593 yards 39 TDs and 15 INTs (4 more picks but 10 more TDs and 240 more yards)
      Luck also had 150 yards rushing vs Brady's 35.

      Granted, we fell apart against the Chiefs in KC, both on offense and on defense.
      We learned from that 1 game and are looking to make the next step with an improved team.
      Our players were playing well beyond their projections.
      And most of our players that were stepping up were rookies and 2nd year players on the offensive line and on defense.
      Quentin Nelson and Darius Leonard were absolute beasts, but they were still rookies that got taken advantage of by a very good Kansas team in the playoffs and on the road.

      Leonard learned some big lessons from that game and he was already playing like a Defensive Player of the Year.
      All these players have a year or their 2nd year under their belts now. We were already a better team than last year just by experience alone, but we also added some weapons in the draft. Campbell looks like he is going to be a big weapon for Luck. And if Funchess pans out we got some big targets and a whole lot of mouths to feed for Luck with Doyle also coming back from his injury. Just 2 Pro Bowl TEs with Ebron and Doyle, with Cox just waiting for his opportunity as well. Hines is still a nice little weapon for us in the passing game as well and he will be improved his 2nd year. Mack looks ready to eclipse 1,000 yards with relative ease if he just stays healthy.

            Last year was Luck's year back with a good GM, a good coach, and legit weapons and he had a comeback year.
            Everyone needs to calm the fuq down. Luck is still tier 1. He is as good as Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Tom Brady at this point in their careers.
            Luck has better weapons than Brady who just lost Gronk and the Colts have a defense and solid front offense now with a legit offensive line.
            I see idiots putting him with Big Ben.... gtfo of here.

                          Andrew Luck couldn't throw the ball last year, but he still managed to throw 4,000 yards, 39 TDs, and won 10 games. When he's healthy, it's 40 TDs & 11 wins. I don't see a big drop off.

                                  i've never been a fan of andrew luck. i think he's a good QB. but for some reason, when i watch him play----i don't see "elite" (like a lot of people do). i don't know what to make of him as QB, but like i said----i do think he's good.

                                            Luck is a great qb, but i think it's time for the Colts to start looking to draft another qb who can be the franchise guy. With how many injuries Luck has had, his body won't last much longer, even if he stays healthy, it's going to accelerate his aging.

                                              @Brayden Wormer Brissett? 16 games with barely over 3000 yards 13 TD's and 7 picks? By you saying that, that means you're saying he's just as good as Luck, which is an insult to the man. I'm talking about drafting a guy who is capable of actually carrying the team to the playoffs in the absence of Luck, and a guy like that wouldn't be a 3rd string qb. Brissett is ok, but don't act like he can take the franchise anywhere.

                                              ¿? ¿? No. They already have one of the best backups in the league in case he does go out. They aren’t going to draft a QB in the first round to be a 3rd strong QB. That just doesn’t make sense.

                                              @Brayden Wormer I'm not saying he's a goner, but last year was his first full year of play in a while. His last full year of play, playing all 16 games was 2014. From 2015 up to last year, out of 64 games, he's played in 38. 2015 played in 7, 2016 played 15, and missed all of 2017. I hope the guy can stay healthy, but from a business stand point, you need to be prepared if that stretch of missed games from your franchise guy happens again. How many years does Luck have in him before his body starts to feel old because of that o-line not protecting him, and his injury history? How many injuries does he have in the near future? Best thing to do is draft another top rated qb and be prepared.

                                              ¿? ¿? These comments that keep saying Luck is a goner is so entertaining 😂 the guy had one long stretch of injuries. Outside of that long stretch he has missed... 1 game. It’s not like he misses a handful of games every season like Mariota or whatever other QB. He just had one terrible stretch.

                                              Was the Colts' O line that much better? Or was it Frank teaching Luck to stop holding the ball for so long? Luck's a nice guy an all... gotta like him... But his window to win a SB is closing.

                                                You couldn’t be more wrong. Don’t you even try to blame it on him holding the ball too long. He was behind one of the worst O-lines ever and had no offensive weapons outside of TY Hilton. His teams in the last were garbage, bottom 5 in the league talent wise. It was Luck TY Hilton, and the rest of the team was a question mark. His Super Bowl window is just opening. Those old teams never had a chance to even go to a super bowl. Now he has a great coaching staff and GM behind the team. A way more talented Defense and significantly more help on offense. And it’s not like he is old. He could easily still have 3 prime years left, easy.

                                              Wrong, he missed 1 game in 2016 and was a top 4 QB.

                                                  Top Troop the thing with Mariota is he consistently misses games every season. Luck just had one agonizingly long stretch of injuries. Other than that stretch Luck has only missed 1 game in his career. Also Mariota is average when he is healthy. Luck is elite.

It's unbelievable.
