Just a quick thought on something that confounds me;
I keep seeing all these comparisions of Andrew Luck to Peyton Manning; calling Luck the most polished passer to come out of college since Manning, a sure fire guaranteed franchise quarterback, the surest bet since Peyton came into the league.
But correct if I'm wrong; it's been a few years since Peyton got drafted so my memory may be a bit fuzzy, but wasn't there another quarterback that came out the same year as Peyton by the name of Ryan Leaf?
And wasn't there a huge debate (one of the largest debates I can recall ever) over which quarterback would make the best franchise player to choose with the number one pick? I seem to recall countless analysts appearing on my tv for many countless hours for many countless days on end debating the merrits of each of these quarterbacks. It really seemed to be the biggest decision to happen to pro foorball since the decision to allow the foward pass.
Of course I could be all wrong about all of this...
but in case I am correct then my whole point is; if there was such indecision at the time about whether to choose Peyton or Leaf then obviously Peyton wasn't the most sure fire bet to come out of college, obviously it seems a bit idiotic for all these sports writers and media commentators to say, "Luck is the surest bet at a franchise quarterback since Peyton Manning came out."
Oh and one other thing; I seem to recall another quarterback that came out a few years back that was supposed to be the second coming of Peyton Manning, I can't remember his name, maybe we should ask Tim Couch...he might know who I'm talking about
