    Interesting to me that Andrew Luck is receiving accolades because people expect him to be great, as opposed to him actually being great.

    Not a snowball's chance in hell he is the 4th best player in the division at this point in time.

    Maybe, but he's probably the MVP and almost surely the most highly coveted.

    That list is whacked. Posluszny? Reed? Freeman? Johnson?

    Duane Brown ... insert any name ... Chris Myers

    I know we give Schaub a hard time around here.... my thinking is that the home crowd "maybe" unfairly scrutinizes their QB & overstate his weaknesses.

    This... got me wondering. He's an honarable mention?? Andrew Luck (& come on, as much promise as Luck shows, Schaub had a better season) top 4??

    I'm going to have to reassess my assessment.

    Looks like another name recognition exercise rather than actually watching the guys play and making assessments.

    Someone finally agrees with me. Just because he has all the hype and stuff doesn't make him an amazing QB. How you play on the field makes yourself.

    Admittedly, I didn't read the whole thing but 9 out of the 20 seems pretty good to me.

    Andrew Luck does things that a 10 year vet does.

    He most certainly belongs in the Top 10 best players in the division.

    List seems generally okay. Cushing is better than 10 though. I would probably swap Cushing and Reed with each other. Cushing, when healthy, is a Top 5 MLB in the league.

    Would you trade JJ for Luck ? Of course you would, and in a heart beat and you'd also throw in some boot like Andre or Cushing or maybe both ?

    That was the most worthless link I have seen on this forum in a long time. Since your post history seems to be only linking that specific website, I can only assume you work for them. In the future, at least get some content, analysis and actual meat in your articles if you want people to take them serious. In the meantime, have some negs.

    Andre Johnson
    Duane Brown
    Arian Foster
    JJWatt
    Jonathan Joseph

    That's 5 players who were better players than Andrew Luck

    Which "JJ"??
    Actually it doesn't matter because I wouldn't trade Jonathan Joseph and certainly not J.J. Watt for Andrew Luck. That's just plain crazy talk.

    I don't know why but for some reason that post reminded me of the scene towards the end of Billy Madison with the whole, "At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

    JJ Watt is a tremendous football player who's also very young which of course makes him even much more valuable, but he's not a QB and you can bet the Texans wouldn't blink an eye if they got a chance to make that deal for Luck.

    Unfortunately, this is true. JJ Watt is currently the face of our franchise, and doing an awesome job at that. He will soon be the highest paid defensive player in history. But he ain't a QB, and this is a QB driven league.
