Default update on luck

@michaelombardi : "There are indications coming from Carolina that the team will not draft a QB and rely on Jimmy Clausen next season"

after watching luck play in person, this kid is the real deal, amazingly exciting to watch, and i would not be upset if they drafted him.

I feel confident that he will return to Stanford. I wouldn't be surprised to see Harbaugh stay as well.

If he's on the board you have to take him.

yeah, this, I mean I love Tebow and all, but if the dude fell to #2, obviously you take him

that being said

1) he won't fall to #2

2) he might go back to school

Agreed. He's going to be the #1 pick whether it's this year or next. But if the Panthers have a shot at him and are stupid enough not to pull the trigger, shame on them.

Wasn't this the report yesterday morning then it was debunked by the afternoon?

  • Published: Jan. 3, 2011 at 12:56 p.m.
  • Updated: Jan. 4, 2011 at 04:20 p.m
It was completely debunked by ESPN and other major and minor sites saying that Carolina will guarantee the Luck pick if he comes out.

I don't get why people would want to pick him. This franchise has failed because of defense since the SBs. You would think that at some point the fans would want to build the defense up. I really hope the front office wants to build the defense. Every year there is a new excuse to pick offensive players in the first....

Let me make this prediction so it will be guaranteed not to happen.....

If Rich Rodriguez is fired Harbaugh will go to Michigan and Luck will declare for the draft.

i want to move forward with Tebow...if Luck somehow is available at #2, we'll be scrutinized no matter what we do...

Because he's a really, really, REALLY good quarterback, as close to pro-ready as you can get? Maybe?

Because Tebow is still a project whose windup costs him 5-6 completions PER GAME and who makes some really poor decisions?

Because it's a quarterback league?

If you don't know why people might want to pick a quarterback who can come in and contribute immediately at a reasonably high level, and has the pro potential to grow into a perennial all-pro, then you're dumber than all of us thought. And that's pretty dumb already.

Really? I was eating lunch at the Pub and ESPN was reporting it. "Rich Rodriguez out as Michigan Head Coach."

Weird.

I think there were some early/initial reports that he was fired, so understandable.

If they take someone else there, it would be golden for us.

Because Luck is THE #1 prospect our pick basically jumps in value to the #1 overall selection.

If Denver picks Luck that's fine with me, I'll just wait and see what happens. He might be good. I'm a little skeptical, but there's enough interest in him he can be traded.

That will sure help the problem that has kept this team down for the last 10+ years! Who cares about the franchises worst ever defense? We can have another new QB!

Who cares what people think about him? The next Manning comes out every year, only they are never even close to as good as people predict.

A rookie Tebow outplayed Orton. A QB that you defended as playing well...
