as far as what I think, I like Luck, but like you said it depends on the situation, if he has time to sit behind one of the greatest QBs in history like Peyton Manning, I'm sure he can teach him a few things, but then you also have to wonder, seeing as how bad the Colts were this year, what if it's the same bunch of guys that made then terrible this year, but with Luck as starter? could he be able to do what Manning has done, and make a 2-13 team, into 10-6 team? it seems like a lot to handle, but I wouldn't deny Luck of anything, the guy does his home work, not just in school, but on the field to, that's what's gotten him his success in NCAA so far.
but you do have a good point, Luck doesn't have the same arm as some of those people, so maybe that could hurt him, especially in a offense like Indy, who has no running support what so ever, and would have to rely on Luck to throw the ball a lot.
but then you think, "can having dead on accuracy cover up the lack of an arm? And truly, there's no way in answering that until he steps on the field, so we'll have to wait and see
and another thing, people are acting like he's the god of football though, except the difference between him and Tebow, everybody HATED Tebow coming out of college, just ask Mel Kiper, he's probably still crying just because of the success Tebow has had already. Where as Andrew luck is the complete opposite and everybody wants on his bandwagon, well that bandwagon is running out of room, and maybe Luck will be jumping off (did that make any sense? I just pulled that out of my ass)
but overall here's my expectation on Luck, if he goes to Indy, I see him struggling a lot when he first steps on the field, mainly because of how much he would have to throw it.
however if he goes to Minnesota, I could really see him filling the "game manager" role very well, because he'll have AP to support him on the ground. Although speaking of AP, I really think he's starting to wear down, he's been getting injured all this year, and maybe he's just another to add to the RB short career list, hopefully not though because he's a fucking animal.
