Suck for Luck

     Any NFL or college football fans know about Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. Last year, he was touted as the 'slam dunk' No. 1 overal pick, and a guarenteed Hall of Famer. Luck however, did what he thought was the right thing....he went back to college. This year, Luck is even better, and almost all the teams in the NFL have agreed that he is the best prospect in a long time. However, don't be surprised if he goes back to Stanford...AGAIN. He has one year of eligibility left, so it is possible he'll stay a member of the Cardinal. Many teams are in the running to win the "Suck for Luck Sweepstakes," but not all of them need a quarterback. Then again, any team would benefit through having his services, (Think of the Patriots drafting Ryan Mallet.) His talent has caused a small stir among teams because some of the teams GMs and owners are worried that teams may forgoe the season to have a chance to draft him, which, in all honesty, sounds like a brilliant idea.
      I think that the Broncos, Dolphins, Chiefs, Seahawks, 49'ers and even the....Indianapolis Colts. I think the Broncos and Chiefs will jump at the chance to take Luck because, A. they are both terrible teams, and B. their quarterback position is unsettled, (Yes, I know the Chiefs have Matt Cassel, but he is never going to have a season like last year.)  The Dolphins, for lack of a better word, suck. Henne is finally putting together a somewhat respectable year, but Miami is in a division with some awesome QBs. Tarvaris Jackson is only a stopgap in Seattle, so don't be surprised if they "Suck for Luck." The 49'ers are in there just because John Harbaugh was Luck's coach at Stanford. Now for the Colts....Peyton Manning is old. That much is a guarentee, and now with his being out for the season, the Colts need to prepare for the worst. They really are not that good without Manning. If Manning manages to come back next season, and the Colts choose Luck, that is great for Luck and the organization as a whole, because Luck can learn from Peyton and this will make the transition seamless.
