Found October 13, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:

Last week Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts played extremely well against the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers. On the last 2 minutes of the game, Andrew Luck led his team down the field for the win. This week they will face a team who has their backs against the wall in the New York Jets. There has been tons of drama over the past couple of weeks with Sanchez and Tebow. Well Andrew Luck has been the most dominating rookie in the NFL this year. He is averaging 302 yards a game and has already upset the Green Bay Packers. Luck is starting to gain confidence which is going to be hard to stop because of his skills.
Luck is a very good quarterback, and if for some reason they get up on the Jets, we could have a major problem brewing in New York. The Jets will hate to admit it, but we all know that Tebow is just waiting for the call. Last week in the Jets game, Tebow looked amazing on his first pass where he threw a beautiful ball to recently picked up Jason Hill who dropped a huge gain. It was a perfect throw but Hill just couldn’t bring it in. Every time that Tebow took the field the Jets fans cheered, every time Sanchez threw a bad pass they booed. Sanchez looked good but did throw 2 interceptions. Neither were his fault but as a fan sometimes you just get upset with seeing your quarterback kill a drive. Well the fans are already irate and if the J-E-T-S lose to a rookie in Andrew Luck, it could push Tebow in at QB, and Rex out the door. We shall see tomorrow, when the Colts take on the Jets.

Problem 1: Run, Run, Stop

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist Andrew Luck's first working trip to New York didn't exactly go to plan, though some punishing defense by the Jets had a lot to do with that.

Brunner: Colts got Grounded and Pounded by the Jets

The Colts-Jets game was frustrating to watch, but we're going through with some links anyway. Conrad Brunner of 1070 The Fan broke the game down in his Hot Reads column, and in his earlier quick recap and box score.    It was eerily similar to the season-opening 41-21 loss in Chicago, as the Colts were plagued by shaky play from rookie quarterback Andrew Luck (two interceptions...

Quit playing for the FG

As a football fan, I see this every week.  And, every time, it drives me crazy.  A team will have 3rd and manageable either inside the Red Zone or close to it, and what do they do?  They’ll call a run into the line, and they will play for the FG.  Consider this an open letter to football teams.  Here’s what I’ve seen in just the last few weeks:   Jacksonville v.
