08:22 AM ET 11.03 | Phil Simms recently put the brakes on Andrew Luck's future as an NFL star-in-the-making. Simms isn't the only one who has concerns about Luck. ... During the Stanford-Southern Cal game I spent about 45 minutes talking to a high level scout who also had reservations about the Stanford quarterback. The scout began the conversation about Luck by asking my assessment of Luck's arm strength. I told him that I did not believe that arm strength was Luck's greatest asset, but that having scouted Luck in person and off of video I believed him to have plenty of zip on the ball to make every NFL throw. I also pointed out that Luck's anticipation and accuracy -- arguably his two best features -- more than made up for a lack of a howitzer for a right arm.

I'm sure under Manning's tutoring Luck will turn into an excellent NFL quarterback.

I'm thinking that Phil should stick to analysing the skill and play of his kids!!! :-)

I bet Phil Simms thought Leaf was going to be better than Manning because he had a stronger arm.
