    Honestly Luck coming into the game with no practice and no game reps under his belt it might be better for us.

    Don't care if he's healthy or not at the beginning of the game. I want him dead sometime during the game.

    YES, the guy is overrated. Scouts & Analysts called him "A Generational Talent" it's hard not to be overrated w/ that type of hype. He has not came anywhere near that. He has a true #1WR in Hilton; & adequate weapons around him. Granted his oline sucked; but so has ours until last year. Here's what was written on NFL.com about him & his stats:

    Despite leading Indianapolis to three playoff appearances and a 43-27 record as a starter over the past five seasons, Luck shouldn't be viewed as an untouchable commodity by the team. The former No. 1 overall pick isn't one of the elites at the position and certainly hasn't played like the next coming of John Elway. He hasn't played a full season since 2014 and sports a 10-12 record as a starter since the beginning of 2015.

    That's not to suggest he is a bust or a colossal underachiever, but Luck definitely hasn't played to the narrative that's been attached to his name. He is a sub-60-percent passer with a penchant for turnovers. Say what you want about me being harsh, but the numbers don't lie.

    In his NFL career, Luck sports a 59.2 percent completion rate, a 132:68 touchdown-to-interception ratio and an 87.3 passer rating. Those numbers aren't awful, but they're on par with a group of QBs that might surprise you, given all the hype Luck has received ...

    Andy Dalton: 62.9 percent completion rate, 149:87 TD-to-INT ratio, 89.0 passer rating, 58-38-2 record.

    Alex Smith: 62.3 percent completion rate; 172:91 TD-to-INT ratio, 87.1 passer rating, 84-58-1 record.

    Sam Bradford: 62.5 percent completion rate; 101:57 TD-to-INT ratio, 85.1 passer, 34-45-1 record.

    Not the kind of numbers or play you expect from a generational talent IMO. Is he good? Absolutely. One day he may win a SB. He will have a much better team around him if he does; it will not be him doing it on his own as many said he could.

    Guys like Brady, Rodgers, & Manning made the scrub players around them much better. For a few years now people have lumped Luck into that same group w/ them. He is not there. Brissett is winning games w/ the same group of guys. Don't get me wrong; the Colts are better w/ Luck. However, I do not think he is the talent everyone thought he was....

    I don't see the Colts trading him anytime soon though. That would be stupid. He is a Franchise QB when healthy. That is not something you easily find. Trading it away would be NUTS!

    I get the idea behind the article.... It makes sense in ways. However, I do not see anyway the Colts trade Luck. It's too hard to find a QB these days. It would be crazy. Although I think they would get a great value for him; it would be hard to sell a fan base IMO. Especially that Indy fan base that loves Luck.
