Stanford QB calls Suck for Luck campaigns “stupid”

Posted by Michael David Smith on October 15, 2011, 1:19 PM EDT

APStanford quarterback Andrew Luck knows that some fans of some of the worst teams in the league are openly rooting for their teams to lose this season if it means getting the first pick in the draft, and therefore getting Luck.

But Luck says those aren’t the kinds of fans he wants to play for.

“I am aware of it,” Luck told the New York Times. “A couple of guys told me about it. I think it’s stupid. Simply put.”

Luck might not like it, but the “Suck for Luck” campaigns aren’t going away: They’re only going to heat up in the final weeks of the season, with fans of the worst teams actively cheering for their teams to lose, and win the right to take Luck with the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

One way to eliminate the unseemly thought of teams intentionally tanking games to get the top pick would be to do away with the practice of awarding the top pick to the team with the worst record and instead implement an NBA-style draft lottery. Peter King and Mike Florio discussed that idea on NBC SportsTalk:

He's going to pull a John Elway with whichever team ends up with the top pick.

Ok, Chiefsfanz. That should do it. No way do you want a guy like that on your team. C'mon now - take up the chant.... "NO LUCK!! NO LUCK!! NO LUCK!!"

I gave up on getting Luck last week. If he goes to the Donks or Colts, I hope he gets AIDS, fucks all his teammates in the ass, and then kills them with his AIDS

I'm worried about Indy getting him...

Why? If it's between Denver and Indy then I would hope everyone would want Indy to get him. Even though his ceiling is so high, asking him to replace Manning isn't going to be easy. There's a big difference in being the best prospect to being one of the best QB's to ever play the game.

I don't think Denver has a chance to get him. I don't even count them in the discussion. Tebow will find a way to win a couple games for them.

I want him to end up in either Miami or Minnesota.

But Indy doesn't fucking deserve him, and they have a legit shot.

Not to mention for the sake of his career, Indy the WORST place he could begin his career. No future to build on at all.

Not a chance. They are already scouting him.

I'd laugh if he thinks its stupid because he's already made up his mind to stay at Stanford. That would be hilarious with Denver and Indy putting key players on the trading block.

Realistically, the only team that trades the pick is St. Louis. I don't think they will get it though, given their division but they are really really bad.

St. Louis or if for whatever reason Carolina keeps finding ways to lose.

Luck's Journal. October 14th, 2011: Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. The NFL is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The fields are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the crappy teams will drown. The accumulated filth of all their interceptions and poor clock management will foam up about their waists and all the Chiefs and Colts fans will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll whisper "no."

Arizona is also quite terrible.

Would anyone even want Kolb after that? The only teams without QBs are terrible, and Kolb's not good enough to make them better than terrible, so they'll just draft QBs and boot Kolb out the door.

Unlike the Chiefs. Nope. OUR retread QB we acquired through trade made us competitive! He's here to stay!

And I'm sure Elway will tutor him in every aspect of that maneuver so he will safely land into the hands of Denver.




Fucking cheating ass fucking donks.

Ya, teams trying to draft him is adding way too much pressure. Not at all everyone hyping him as the best thing since Elway.

If he busts (which he probably won't), they won't be talking about who will be the next Ryan Leaf on draft day. They will be talking about who will be the next Andrew Luck. That is a load of pressure. If I personally, were in a situation like that... I wouldn't like it. But Andrew Luck seems like a confident enough character, I am sure that he copes with pressure-inducing circumstances just fine...which is probably a huge factor in his success to this point.

I dont know about that. I don't see us establishing a run game against them. The fact that Battle went off on Indy is what helped us get back in the game. Think Indy had the ball for like 8mins in the second half.

Their front seven will be problematic. The real pain in the ass is going to be McFadden. Al Saunders is going to do his best to turn him into a faster stronger Priest Holmes.

I can't either, but the commish probably doesn't have the power to penalize teams that are tanking at the end of the year. If there is evidence that teams start tanking this year then you'll see a lottery.

Doesn't it have to wait until the next CBA for this to happen? I read that on Chiefsplanet.

Oh well, You don't always get want you want Mr. Luck especially in the NFL.
Right now there are several teams that could use him so odds are that one of them are going to get him and he is just going to have to deal with it if he wants to play football.

If you are running an NFL Franchise right now and you look at your starting QB and you don't see him as a "Franchise QB" What's the point?

There are going to be a lot of teams going after this kid, and the Chiefs should be #1 on the list! Just deal with it.

So change the draft system based on fan campaigns?

How often does a "suck for draft position" type of mindset occur? Once per decade? And are teams actually trying to lose games for draft spots? Hell, in the last decade, how often has it been speculated that a team didn't want the #1 overall due the expense. Is being to cheap to improve your team better than throwing games in an effort to improve?

Suggesting that the suck for luck craze is an indication of a flawed draft system is absurd.
