NFL.com This just makes me sick! The Redskins and now the Colts both have quarterbacks with great potential this season. They also have great fantasy football potential as well.
Now while I have hesitation about evlevating both players overall fantasy football value I cannot ignore their talent. Both Luck and RGIII have the demeanor of a veteran QB.
As much as most will naturally compare Luck to Manning they are both very different quarterbacks.
In addition to his pin point passing accuracy Luck has play making potential with his feet. Luck is not a pocket passer he can make plays on his feet just like Cam Newton, Michael Vick, and Donovan McNabb which why he is so deadly.
While Luck doesn’t have the cannon that Vick, Newton, and McNabb posses he can throw a fast ball inside the receivers numbers. Something that some play makers lack.
Look for Luck to continue to progress.

Yesterday Carroll answered some quick questions I had about former Indianapolis Colt Peyton Manning and the speculation over his fusion surgery.
TheFFInformer: What is the risk of Manning’s neck injury and is there a greater risk of paralysis after fusion surgery?
Carroll: No, the neck is fused, so it’s actually stronger than most people’s (but a bit less flexible.) He’s at no more risk than anyone for paralysis.
TheFFInformer: How much is his arm strength and throwing motion affected by the fusion surgery? Can he throw across his body?
Carroll: His arm strength is coming back and is at a playable level now. The video showed him (specifically) throwing across his body.
I want to thank Will Carroll for taking the time and granting me the permission to write his reply on my blog.
