Holy Smokes! Tuned in to watch Colts vs Chiefs and ended up watching Andrew Luck doing his very best Blake Bortles impersonation. Throws a couple of INTs but is never bothered. Cool, calm and collected Luck leads his team back from a big deficit for another 4th quarter WIN, JUST LIKE BLAKE BORTLES. Can you believe it???

Bigger question whose game is predicated on such an offense?

People here who are trying to argue the shotgun spread is a winning offense in the pros is stuck on dumb. No play action, no power run game. All slight of hand.

Bortles didn't make 1 NFL throw the other night. It's easy to throw to wide open guys and dump off to your playmaker.

Teddy B found 10 different receivers. It was a passing clinic, go back and watch it and be witness to real quarterbacking.

You have no idea at all what a NFL throw is or you wouldn't have said that. Hell, please explain what "you think" is an NFL throw and what isn't.

He made at least two great throws down the field which is what a lot of scouts want to see. It's fine to have a guy you favor like Bridgewater. Everyone likes one guy over the other, but to sit here and make up utter complete lies about other QB's because they aren't named Bridgewater makes you seem so immature.

He doesn't seem too fond of the heartwarming story that is Bortles.

Boller? Gabbert? Ouch.

Hopefully his 30 years in a scouting/executive capacity is acceptable.

Starting to think texian IS Bortles?

Would explain a lot.

Although I am on team Bortles assuming we trade back to get him he is by no means an Andrew luck clone. I don't care what stats you dig up.

And for your reference - it would be Bortles doing his best Andrew luck impersonation, not the other way around.

I appreciate all input, pro and con. Like I said, I try to be as unbiased and objective as I can. I stopped falling in love with players long ago. That is the first Boller, Gabbert comparison I have seen.

Default Re: Blake Bortles

I've got to say both Phillip Rivers & Andy Dalton suck, playoff teams or not both teams should think about entering Bortles sweepstakes.

I have no problems with Bortles. He reminds me the most of Luck in this draft.

Eh, he looks and runs like Luck. That's where the similarities end though, unfortunately.

I'd be on board if we took him. But he needs some time before he's ready.
