You think the Broncos would trade Manning, The Patriots would trade Brady? The Vikings would trade Peterson?
For the third best rookie QB of 2012? That's insane & would be too big a gamble, I think, for those players, or even Jj Watt.
The QB is a big piece of the puzzle, but even the Colts took several years to win it all with one of the best of our generation. The organization from top to bottom has to be perfectly aligned & there's been way too many changes in Indy to think they've struck gold a second time..... from top to bottom.
Odds are against it regardless how good Luck is. A promising young QB couldn't win a play off game in Atlanta for 4 years. StLouis & Detroit appear to be going nowhere fast. & these were very good prospects, not Jamarcus/Vince prospects.
It would be something, if Luck turns out as good as Phillip Rivers & he hasn't won anything in the NFL.
