I am looking forward to 5-10 years of Luck dominating the division myself. It might not happen, but I hope it does.
We were the favorites to be in the Super Bowl for much of the year. Had we even got to the AFC Championship game, we'd have been paying Schaub like Flacco.
It was a gamble they took, I'd have done the same thing. So I'm not scratching my head. He may not be the best starting QB in the league, but he is a starting QB & they don't come cheap. Contrary to popular belief, Matt's not out there losing games for us. He's not winning them for us, but he's definitely not losing them.
Like I said, I'm glad there are people like you who will be holding out hope against hope that Andrew Luck is the next great QB of the AFC South. It'll make our domination that much easier.
