Listen: Andrew Luck, Tom Brady And John Elway discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"Plan and decide aside his status. After the third preseason game question here is will injuries prevent andrew luck from potential absolutely and at full potential is based based off the expectations which was a number one overall pig best quarterback prospects this elway he won't live up to that because of these injuries because the the the longer you play this game the older you get you don't get healthier and it's going to be a very difficult task for him to one just they own the field. Let alone live up to those expectations tasted. I think he falls short. It's been hard for him and i think the early part of his career he was one of those guys that didn't want to get rid of the ball and he would he would get blown alone up for a four yard completion and he's improved substantially in terms of decision making so that part i'm encouraged by but when you get into the misdiagnosis on the shoulder her and he misses that whole season and now we're here and it's supposed to be a star half and then it moved to an ankle and now it's a bone so he's only played played every practice what twice the whole training since since april and and here we are twenty four days left to the start of the season and they i still don't really know what it is so that means that whatever rehab whatever plan they have in place. It's a crapshoot whether or not it gets done so we probably go into this season with the same type of uncertainty and it is disappointing because i think he is a special young quarterback and when he's healthy they've got a chance to compete for the championship every year but as you know this is a new game right. It's not what we played when marcellus than i used to battle these guys is not the same game. These guys are not getting touched. There's a force field around. These quarterbacks andrew luck pocket quarterback. The prototype height weight armed the whole thing so dan marino john elway those those guys are expected him. Put the brakes on. Tom brady sit in the pocket and throw the ball and he's a guy that needs something to fight for personally. I think andrew luck is kinda like matt ryan in that he now needs to take that step and become a man and you know as well as i do. Nothing helps you become that man more when you got to fight for some if he's got a little injury that makes him go out there. Little hungrier sure to prove himself. I think he's all of that wrong. He's gonna have agreed. You still think he could be the guy because the league is so protective of quarterback. It doesn't need to be as healthy any has to be and he has to be the lead protects them and he has to be this is his his time if he doesn't do it this year <hes> <hes> injury or not then now you're talking everything you just said is for sure and then move onto his career. He's out of indianapolis non to another program well to me when i hear practice three times since april and you're creeping up on thirty and i just end the way the quarterbacks ax to mahomes the baker mayfield to the shawn watson this next generation of quarterbacks. I just think if you're not out on the field game aim at the game at the game season after season to see it's hard to be to become a tom brady or peyton manning or the best quarterback in the league and at some point during his career andrew luck was supposed to be the best quarterback in the league yup. I don't think it's ever going to happen. I think mahomes has come in. I think <hes> mayfield's on the rise. I think there's another group of quarterbacks that it will be the best quarterback over the next ten years andrew luck on everybody that got there's one attribute attribute negative attribute trait that they don't talk enough about an injury"
