Indianapolis Shouldn’t Be So Lucky

14 Oct

Wait, wait, wait. So the Indianapolis Colts may go from a Hall of Famer to a future Hall of Famer in the blink of an eye? 

Peyton Manning’s injury may be more of a pain in the neck than we realized. We could wind up 1-15, and who might still be picking ahead of us in April? Why only one of the winningest franchises of the last decade.

Don’t get us wrong. We aren’t advocating intentional losses, as some of the most vociferous Suck for Luckers are. However, if our lackluster play continues and the Dolphins go belly up, it would be downright criminal for the Colts to land Andrew Luck.

Quite simply, we have earned that pick. Mr. Luck has been bought and paid for with every failed starter we’ve burned through since Saint Marino removed his storied cleats. It’s a graveyard of signal callers, Lucas, Harrington, Culpepper, Frerotte. We all know the parade of names on that sad graphic they show during every other Dolphins telecast. It’s become pigskin’s version of the Vietnam Wall.

By almost every scout’s estimation Luck would make that graphic a faint memory. But if the conveniently-bad Colts somehow out-suck the SoFlo Sea Mammals, here’s hoping Landry Jones is a hell of a consolation prize.

    Just like it was criminal for the Dolphins to go from Bob Griese to Dan Marino in a blink of an eye, while also appearing in a Super Bowl and arguably the greatest game ever played the year before? Btw how many Superbowls did Saint Marino win us? ZERO, which is same as every Q that came after him.

    I’m not convinced the Dolphins would do well with Andrew Luck. How many amazing players have we signed away from other teams only to see their production plummet due to misuse? BMarsh, Reggie Bush, Jake Grove, Kevin Burnett, Karlos Dansby, David Boston, Joey Porter, Junior Seau, shall I continue?

    Miami drafting Andrew Luck would only backfire as Miami wastes this once in a decade opportunity by grossly misusing him as all the world watches in disgust.

      Notice something about all of those amazing players you mentioned? Not a single QB. Let’s keep skimping on signal callers and see where that gets us.
