Many speculate Andrew Luck will be the first pick in this years draft
Luck. Oh, Andrew Luck.
Fans in Indy love this guy.
For eight games, they've been screaming for him. Again, hence the "Suck for Luck" campaign. Sorry, I'm not sold.
Most fans here became fans after Manning (or to be fair, right before with the Jim Harbaugh heroics in the mid 90s. Man, I loved that guy).
Our experience with first-round draft pick quarterbacks in recent memory is pretty good. I mean, just look at Manning.
He will arguably go down in history as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
But for those of us who have been on this wagon since Day 1 (March 28, 1984), we remember Jeff George and Art Schlichter!
But there are plenty of others, JaMarcus Russell, Tim Couch, Todd Marinovich, Cade McNown, Akili Smith, Danny McGwire, Jim Druckenmiller, Patrick Ramsey and the list goes on and on and on.
The fact is that success, or lack thereof, doesn't guarantee anything in the NFL.
This guy, no matter his success, is still a long shot. The experts are fairly knowledgeable but can still get it wrong.
Isn't that right, Tebow?
