When Andrew Luck and the Colts came back to beat the Chiefs, threads were made and many Jet fans were on the Andrew Luck gravy train, many comparing Luck to Geno. A man who was down by 28 points mostly because of his 1 pick in the first half and 2 picks in the second half decided to start throwing the ball to his reliable target in Hilton (Such a target that Geno has no equivalent to). With a mixture of Hilton being a beast, a lucky fumble bounce for a TD and the fact that the Chiefs simply thought they won the game going into halftime, Andrew Luck was able to win the game and was RIDICULOUSLY compared to Michael Jordan by the Colts GM.
Now with a seasoned veteran squad in the Patriots being their opponent, a team that if is up by 3 TD's simply wont blow it, how does andrew luck perform? Worse than he did last week. Luck threw 4 INT's in the game. He has a total of 7 INT's this post season to just 6 TD's. Actually this is Andrew Lucks stats during the Playoffs.
3 games played: 1-2 record, 77 comp. 140 att. 54.45 comp%, 7.16 avg yds per comp, 6 TD's, 8Ints, 1 Fumb, 51.4 QBR, 68.1 RAT.
This guy is hands down the 2nd most talented QB of his very talented rookie class, but when it comes to big games (not against Peyton Manning) he seems to choke up. Geno has thrown 21 INT's in a season with no weapons, terrible Guards with D'Brick and Mangold who are shells of themselves. Meanwhile, Andrew Luck was a fumble bounce away from being 0-2 in the playoffs and Jet fans are making threads praising this dude as if he's done something special when his only win came against a team that was up by so many points (4 TD's) that they forgot to play 4 quarters of football and literally beat themselves. Luck goes up against a veteran team that wont blow a multiple TD lead and gets blown out by 3 TD's. lol.
My point here, though will be completely missed by some, is If Luck can play this poorly when playing against legit teams in meaningful games with all of the targets he's got around him yet be praised and sought after by Jet fans then Geno should get the benefit of the doubt by the fans of the team he plays on especially as a rookie who has beaten some of these teams that Luck has yet to beat and ending the season they way he did with a .500 record.
