    RG3, Kaepernick, and Wilson earned it. Luck sucked. The fact that you have to compare Luck to a QB with no number one receiver, no consistent running game, a broken shoulder, and a MASH unit for a line should say it all, and he still outperformed Luck in many areas.

    Luck does have the "he just wins" thing going for him, but we've seen a lot of QB's that had that going for them. Eventually their luck (had to) runs out. Like Locker, his play will have to elevate to be competitive in this league

    I do hope Locker finds himself in the same light as RG3, Kaepernick, and Wilson. If he does, he will have earned it like they did. That is a benefit of being a Titan.

    RGIII, Wilson, and Kaep are succeeding because of the systems they are in. If you put Locker on any of those three teams, he would be in the spotlight with them. On the flip side, put RGIII, Wilson, or Kaep on our team last year, and they all would have struggled. RGIII would be the only one of the three to have success.

    As for Luck.. I hate to say it, but that kid is special. I hate that we go from having to deal with Manning for a decade right to having to deal with Luck for another decade. The Colts could easily be like the Packers, having back to back Hall of Fame QBs on their team. The Colts will be major contenders in the AFC South for the next 10-15 years because of Luck, and that blows as a Titans fan. Hopefully we'll knock them out of the playoffs a few times like we did Manning.

    Luck can be very good, but I have yet to see him really impress. "Special", "He just wins", "He's just clutch"... Take me back to 2006.

    He stole some wins but his overall body of work doesn't even reach mediocrity. He can certainly play better and with a better offensive line, it's likely, but I wouldn't be at all surprised to hear the phrase "sophomore slump" tossed around next season.

    Glad to know you're not blinded by the "Luck will Suck" phrase..

    I also hate to say it too in that Luck will be special in this league. Sucks we have to deal with him for the next decade.

    Can anyone convince me why Luck deserves praise outside of the phrase 'he lead his team to the playoffs' which has as much weight as 'he just wins'?

    I mean, thats great, but HOW did he lead his team to the playoffs? Superior play or great game management? Because that is not what I saw or what the stats say.

    ehhhh... I disagree.

    I think he's about as bad as many of us say he is.

    Even his completions are usually ugly.

    Only other QB I've watched that is as equally inaccurate as Jake is would be Tim Tebow.

    ... that's not good.
