    Or Luck could unravel like Phillip Rivers circa 2010 and settle for perpetual mediocrity and high turnovers seasons. Nothing is a certainty in this league.

    Most inept offense in the AFC South, Texans or Colts?

    Tough choice.

    Colts easily thus far.

    Texans are trying to make chicken salad with chicken crap

    Colts on the other hand are turning chicken salad into chicken crap

    Well I feel Luck is special and just doesn't seem like the type to do that. But you could be right.

    Tbh any time Luck has any sort of protection he looks great. The problem is his O-line has been one of the worst since he's entered the league. And the fact that he usually has no running game to speak of puts more pressure on him to take chances, which results in more turnovers.

    Not making excuses for him because he makes some pretty dumb decisions sometimes, but just trying to put things into better perspective.

    Regardless, even if Luck turns into a mediocre QB, the colts will still easily win this division.

    That was unbelievable. Luck was hot garbage. He's gotta improve his decision-making and cut the TOs.

    Maybe the Colts haven't recovered from the shellacking by the Pats.

    Luck is kinda overrated, look at the talent he has on his team from reciever to tight end, and compare it to Cam Newton( a qb who is underrated)... Cam Newton is throwing to philly brown and tedd ginn jr..( basically rejects).. no kueckly, no benjamin.. and his team is 2-0.. both former number 1 picks, the media dont hype Cam like they do Luck tho

    Cam Newton also does helicopters in the end-zone. His career isn't going to be very long if he continues.

    Trigonometry is easier than being an NFL QB.

    11 year olds learn trigonometry.

    Pagano is a lame duck and it is infecting the team chemistry. Luck by advanced metrics isn't even a top 10 QB yet because he continually makes poor decisions. He's too confident in his ability to fit a ball in a tight window against the blitz. He has to learn when to chuck the ball out of bounds and punt.

    Since 2010, and including the current season, Rivers has had half his seasons with passer rating of over 100 (3 out of 6). Luck has never had a single one in his career.

    Yes, and his team is 43-39 since 2010 hence the mediocrity. Rivers went from a winning QB to a guy who has led campaigns of 9-7, 8-8, 7-9, 9-7, 9-7, and now 1-1. That's Matt Schaub like consistency.

    I get the feeling Pagano will be outtie 5000 at the end of this season
    If the Colts don't rebound.

    Someone said the players are getting a bit done with him.

    There was already talk before the season of him being out, and that was with the expectations of them doing what they've done the past few years (11-5 but no Super Bowl). If they actually struggle? Yeah, he's probably gone.

    Watch Jim Harbaugh leave Michigan after 1 season to return to his former team with his former QB.

    Doubtful he'd leave after 1 season there... not to mention his buyout is probably astronomical (and they're paying him quite a bit more too... not sure the Colts could match that).
