Even if Watt is better (which he is, at this point), Luck will have the greater impact over the long term because he has the league office in his pocket, just like every other star QB.
JJ would be the one player who might not sign early for a chance to play out a contract to win .

Yes they are. The Colts rebuilt while the Texans were taking baby steps - baby steps that are ending in falling down.

You would be stupid not to. JJ has a chance to be the best DL ever but Luck is going to win many, MANY games for the Colts. That kid is unfairly good. Did you see that throw to TY Hilton against Seattle? I can't remember the last time I saw a throw like that. And the Colts have him for his entire career most likely.. Depressing.

"Are the Indy Colts now the best team in the AFC South ?"
Obviously that question is a nobrainer, an utterly silly question today.

They damn sure have the best QB, and in this league that pretty much means you have the best team.

i am not sure Colts best team yet but I am sure they have the best QB by a long shot.

We get Mario for the first pick they get Luck(y). That is the way the ball bounces. To top it off we get nothing when Mario leaves. The Dallas Cowboys build a dynasty by trading Hershel Walker we get crap, that is just poor planning.

You can say our front office did a great job but the only two things I remember that they have done a good job on so far is Joseph/Manning and draft Watt. I am sure someone can remember more. List them to make me feel better. Any think they(fo) have ever made any mistakes??
Above Posted in Dec 2012

Not sure it was all Luck getting Luck. I think they made sure they didn't win until they had 1st round clinched. They changed QB's late in the season and starting being competitive. I may be wrong.

Colts rebuilt overnight it seems while the Texans slept . The Texans woke up to a new league where systems don't win , QBs and the team with the most good to really good players do . If your special teams suck , you may have talent issues .

I think after watching Jacoby and Holliday in the playoffs and thinking , man we could use guys like that , then remembering we had them , convinced me we have real issues .

Realizing the Colts are the best team in the division is just as real as understanding Case Keenum is our best option at quarterback. Both are true but most don't want to admit it.

The Colts got the first pick of the 2012 draft and made the obvious choice
that virtually any team would have made with the top pick in last years Draft. That's all they did, nothing more. So if you want to congratulate them, do so only for compliling the worst record in the NFL in 2011.

So:
Eight years of hard work in the Kubiak regime < one draft pick by the Colts.

I guess that makes my point too.

Who was he competing with those years?


2011
Indy - Painter / Orlovsky
Ten - 36 yr old Hasselbeck
Jax - Gabbert

- He was probably the best QB. Hasselbeck was close, but the rosters around them aren't comparable.


2012
Indy - Rookie Andrew Luck
Ten - Locker
Jax - Gabbert / Henne

- Luck was the more talented QB last year, but Indy was in complete rebuild and we have a roster stacked with pro-bowlers (they still almost caught us fwiw).

You can really only claim 1 year for matt schaub if you want to be honest.
Like I said, unless it's Matt Schaub.

Eight years of hard work in any regime would be trumped by the incredibly
fortuitous opportunity to draft an Andy Luck.

Lots of good young qb's around the league (Colt's aren't alone). You just can't find one in Houston.
