Luck has had nothing but garbage for an O line. If you look at some of the stories from last year, you will find a ton ragging on the coaching staff and GM for not addressing the O line. He also played with a shoulder injury for almost half the season last year.

I wouldn't say there isn't a quarterback "with a tenth of the potential" as Luck had in this year's quarterback class. I don't think Luck has anymore physical talent than a guy like Mitch Trubisky. The difference with Luck was supposed to be that he was the next Peyton/Brees with his on field intelligence, which is really more important than physical talent.

But that intelligence has turned out to be a bunch of hot air for Luck. I'm not saying he's dumb, but his ability to read defenses and make decisions is bottom half of all starters, at this point.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Screw lithe LSU worshippers, I prefer to draft the best player, regardless of where they went to school.

Are you LSU worshippers that insecure?

And Brees' situation is NOTHING like Manning's. Manning was coming off an injury and was thrown to the curb by the Colts with a legitimate replacement in Luck. There is no one with a tenth of the potential as Andrew Luck had in this year's draft.
If they draft a QB before round 3 then he should be pissed. Not because he's going to be looking over his shoulder (cause we all know that won't happen) but because we actually have areas that need addressed on o-line, defense and RB. Those areas should be priority, not some bull**** QB. This QB class blows. Not worth it.

I'd deal the #42 pick and keep it moving.

It wouldn't even bother me trading #32. Let's face it, we'll probably blow that pick anyway lol.
