Discussion: 'Suck for Luck'



Watching the Colts get dominated by New Orleans at the moment and couldn't help thinking of Tony Dungy's opinion on what Indianapolis should do if they end up with the first overall pick. In a nutshell, he makes the claim that the Colts shouldn't repeat the mistake that the Steelers made (passing over Dan Marino since they had an aging Terry Bradshaw) and move for the future. 'Suck for Luck' has really caught on, and the three frontrunners are:

1. St. Louis (0-7)
2. Indianapolis (0-7) (Sorry, there's no way they work out of that 55-7 hole.)
3. Miami (0-6)

If Miami happens to attain the overall pick, which they've admitted to striving for, their plan is pretty simple: draft Luck, shift Henne over to the bench. Indianapolis has a pretty sticky situation, regardless of what Dungy thinks. But I'm surprised that nobody has contemplated what the Rams would do. They have their franchise quarterback, Sam Bradford, worth $50M. And he hasn't been a bust - he just doesn't have a defense, receiving corps, or offensive line to support him. You could easily say that they pass over Luck for defensive end Quinton Coples of North Carolina, No. 2 on Mel Kiper's Big Board. But this is Andrew Luck we're talking about, one of the most anticipated football prospects this side of John Elway. Passing over him is almost as unfathomable as trading Peyton Manning.

So I am asking for your thoughts. What do you think those teams would do? Is Andrew Luck worth Peyton Manning? Do you pass over him just because you have Sam Bradford? What would you do?
