Default I'm not all that impressed with Andrew Luck.

I haven't really watched him play much, but he's on television tonight and I just don't see "the next Peyton Manning" or whatever his hype is billing him as. I've seen him play maybe five times but never came away like "damn, this guy is just filthy."

Def don't agree with "best prospect since Manning' stuff I hear a lot. I think he's an all-around solid QB prospect with a really nice upside, just not up to par with the hype.

Anyone else feeling me on that one?

The biggest manning homer on ISH doesnt think that luck is as good of a prospect as manning... shocking.

Well are you even allowing yourself to see the hype? You're a big Manning fanboy and only seen Luck 5 times in his college career. The fact you can look between your legs and not see a bulge isnt shocking to say the least.

I've read many blogs that say he's not a good leader. Some say he can't will his team in a comeback situation(game they were trailing) and he's never won any game they were trailing. I don't know how much this will affect his game in the NFL, but if he goes to a wack team it might play a big factor in shaping up his NFL career. I'll post the stats later on.

Yeah, I don't know why I even bolded that part. The whole post seemed ridiculous.

How did I get this reputation? I barely ever talk about Manning, and when I do I'm always objective about him.

Why do you care so much about what I think? I could be wrong about Luck, he could become the best quarterback in the league for all I know...it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong about someone coming out of college.

But I trust my gut on these things. I saw the "best in league" talent in Rodgers before anyone was ever saying he was the best quarterback in the league. I was endorsing Big Ben before anyone was as a borderline elite quarterback. I still believe in Romo even though people are always questioning him. I didn't buy the Matt Ryan hype when he first came into the league.

Andrew Luck seems to have all the tools, but none that stick out. A jack of all trades as far as skills go with a really good upside.....but the hype led me to believe he has John Elway type talent. He doesn't, IMO.

I can't lie, I have been impressed with what I've seen from him. But the weirdest thing is the hatred for him that I had started developing from him in January is gone. When he decided to not enter the draft I was crushed, but now I'm glad he stayed at Stanford and we have Cam.
