Yeah, Luck is better than Tannehill. He was taken first overall. We had no chance to get him and we had no shot to get RGIII. I don't think there was anything we could do to get either of them other than what Ditka did to get Ricky Williams (which was the dumbest thing ever because this a QB league).
The real pain will be if the QBs coming out of the draft this year would be better than Tannehill or anyone other than Luck. But with or without Tannehill, Miami was gonna be between 6-8 wins, which means the superstars are likely off the board by the time we draft. We weren't gonna have a shot at Klein and probably not Manziel either. Ironically, with the injury, Matt Barkely probably would've slid down to a range where we could've gotten him. Is he guaranteed better than Tannehill? Maybe. Ultimately, the more I consider it, I feel like getting Tannehill when we did was a good way to go. His tangibles are off the charts and the lessons he's learning this year are awesome for furthering his development. By NOT having great receivers, it's actually gonna make him be better at hitting small windows and making good decisions which will reap huge dividends if and when Miami can actually bring some playmakers through the doors.
I mean, Cutler had Marshall right away and what has he learned in his time in the league? Be a QB that locks onto one guy and suck if that guy is covered? By the end of this year, Tanny is gonna be a guy ready to know who's most likely to be open before the snap and be able to fit it in minute crevices to get completions and keep drives alive.
Um, your comparing the guy that was a once in a great while QB, vs one with 19 college starts at the same position.
Luck beat tannehill cuz sean smith cant catch footballs. Luck gets a lot of hype cuz he is the chosen one. Miami would be in the exact same spot with luck or tannehill. Kicker still would of missed and sean smith still wouldn't be able to catch.
Taylor got the poop poop poop. As he walked past the Jets' locker room after the game, he yelled, "It's like a damn graveyard here. ... Talk about that for two weeks" - a reference to the Jets' bye
I'd give us 1 more win.
To be fair. Luck has only beaten 1 team with a current record of .500. When you break down the team Luck and the Colts have defeated its not that great. How they won is another story though. The game winning drives have been amazing. You can only beat you they put in front of you. I would love to see Luck go against some of the tougher defenses in the league like San Fran or Seattle. He has to go up to Houston twice but lets see if Houston will be resting their players that second game. Whenever Luck has faced a good defensive team he has struggled with turning the ball over. He turned it over 4 times against Chicago, 2 times against the Jets and got completely shut down throwing 22-44 with 0 TDs and Colts only had 9 points. Patriots his turnovers really put the team in a hole. Score 14-14 he throws a pick 6. 17-31 Colts need a score, Luck fumbles and loses possession after D forced a 3 and out. Next possession Luck throws another pick 6.
Teams Luck beat are the Vikings, Packers, Browns, Titans, Dolphins, Jags, Bills, and Lions.
Yes if Luck + Reggie Wayne + Bruce Aryans
No if just Luck.
No we dont have a playoff team. QB is not the issue.
No but we would have at least the #2 wild card spot and would all be in a much better mood.
