When you say it is complete BS that they are winning because of they added other than luck you loose credibility .
Their defense is playing a lot better - On offense they have scored more than 30 points twice all season - on defense they have held their opponents to 20 points or less 6 times and won every game they have done so ( we have held opponents to less than 20 points twice all season ).... So what position does Luck play on D ? Jerrell Freeman has been an absolute beast and a hell of a find from the CFL . - He is a new addition - but his name is not Luck so he and the rest of the defense have no part in the wins ...
Their special teams - TY Hiltion has one PR for a TD in the Bills game - which was the difference in the game at the gun . He has been a demon on special teams and contributes on the offense, plus you have Adam Vinatieri possibly the most clutch kicker in the NFL contributing to their wins too ...
Finally on offense you have Reggie Wayne - even with the likes of Kerry Collins and Curtis Painter throwing to him Wayne had a 900+ yard season with 4TDs - To date he has over 1100 yards, 3 TDs and is number 2 in the NFL in terms of yards and No 1 in terms of receptions . (in contrast going into this game Moss has less than 500 yards and is our leading pass catcher - so Griffin is making his passing game go with much less than Luck has or Had - Even Garcon was the No.3. on the Colts before coming here)
Luck is playing well for a Rookie - in spots . He has great leadership and an none stop motor - but when you compare Luck to RGIII - and for the purpose of the ROY that is all you are looking at they are not in the same ball park . Luck throws a lot so his passing numbers are elevated - but he does not score that much more than the likes of RGIII or Wilson (Wilson leads all rookies) . I have not watched Wilson but right now statistically Wilson is the guy who should be in the ROY conversation with RGIII .
The problem I have with Luck in the ROY discussion is he is a big reason the team has to make the 4th Q come backs .. and he is the big reason that the Jets & Patriots destroyed the Colts ... Kudos for him in bringing the teams back, but like Jake "the Snake" Plumber - the wins are tempered by the fact he caused the problems in the first place....You have to wonder which is more sustainable against tougher opposition - almost 2 turnovers per game or winning > 80% of his close games . It will be interesting to see how he plays over then next two divisional games ..
I am happy to give credit to Luck where it is deserved - and it is deserved - I imagine he will win Rookie of the week, this week - although Wilson again is possibly as deserving of it . RGIII lead the Skins to a gritty win (at home) against the Superbowl champions (and division leaders) - An important win - but a team win .
