Is Andrew Luck’s statistical fall a true narrative of his current ability? There are a lot of opinions right now in regards to the Indianapolis Colts franchise quarterback Skai Moore Jersey , Andrew Luck. Most of the media — and now a healthy dose of Colts fans as well — are questioning the strength of the passer’s surgically repaired right shoulder.The entrance of Jacoby Brissett to throw the Hail Mary in the waning moments of the Colts’ Week 3 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles only made the conversation more unbearable. And now, most are left wondering why Luck and this offense appear to be less efficient and more of an issue than the team’s defense, which was supposed to be the unit that would take time to mesh.Most might not be, but it seems as if a great deal of Colts fans are forgetting one of the most obvious reasons they feel they’re seeing a lack of aggression in Luck and the offense. First, head coach Frank Reich mentioned that his system would see to it that Luck was able to get the ball out of his hands quickly. He also suggested that this offense would be aggressive, multiple, and would attempt to eat up big chunks of yardage as well. It’s fair that these two statements from the rookie head coach might be where the disconnect lies.Of course there are additional circumstances: Anthony Castonzo has been sidelined, the right tackle position has been a bit of a turnstile already in this young season, and there’s a real lack of punch from the running game so far. Reich did touch on some of this yesterday, and here’s what he had to say during availability.About Andrew Luck receiving the balance of praise/blame —And about the optics of appearing to ‘check-down’ so often —I took the liberty of eliminating some of the redundancy in those statements, but that’s the meat and potatoes of those quotes. And Reich is correct, you can remember some of the plays he’s refering to, and thinking to yourself “yep, that was pretty obviously supposed to go deep and it didn’t pan out.”On the other hand, we are also seeing Luck make plenty of mistakes that a quarterback with that mind and so physically gifted such as him should not be making. But, a few other things remain absolutely true regardless of whether or not we want to believe them. Luck isn’t going downfield often, he’s not putting much ‘stank’ on passes that truly need it (this is not a new issue, however), and the Colts’ offense is nowhere near where it needs to be if the Colts are going to make any noise this year.If the Colts have any aspirations of a postseason berth, something is going to have to give. Luck has been sacked 5 times in three games, but has still taken 19 QB hits (19th). Should Reich/Luck sacrifice a sack or two more than they’re allowing per game right now in order to attack the opposing defenses a bit more? I think it’s a reasonable question, but would the payoff truly net more touchdowns? I would think that it would, but I don’t truly know if that’d be the case or not.The one thing that we must keep in mind right now is that we know what Andrew Luck brings to the table. He’s an amazing talent who hovers around 12 yards per completion for his career, has averaged about 4,300 passing yards when he’s played at least 15 games, has led the league in touchdown passes Authentic Anthony Walker Jersey , and has the ability to be a clear top-5 passer in the league.As much as some of what Luck does occasionally aggravates me, I can’t — even for a second — accept that he no longer possesses the ability to be the most deadly quarterback in the league. At any rate, let’s look at the general statistics for Luck and sort of cross-reference them with NFL.com’s Next Gen Stats just for the fun of it.We often use yards per attempt or yards per completion to rationalize a common passing narrative, and sometimes to debunk it. Now, though, there are so many different stats that we can look to in order to attempt to shape our respective thoughts on a matter such as this.Here we’ll look at Next Gen Stats (their glossary), and Luck’s general stats for a bit of clarity. Then again, maybe it’ll just muddy the waters for some. Anyhow, here we go.Luck’s Next Gen StatsTime to throw: 2.52 seconds (7th fastest)Average intended air yards: 5.5 AYs (34th of 35)Aggressiveness percentage: 16.95 (14th)Air yards to sticks: - 2.1 yards (33rd)Expected completion percentage: 67.8% (comp% = 68.5%)Personally, from this group of stats, I get that Luck has indeed been getting the ball out quickly — mostly by design of course — which is a good thing if you’re on board with the selection of Quenton Nelson, keeping the opposing pass rush under control, and are in favor of Luck taking what the defense gives him on early downs, thus, getting into manageable third down situations more regularly. On the other hand, we can’t presuppose anything about him getting ‘better’ protection from this stat. Luck has been hit 19 times, which seems to counter that argument.Additionally, we’re seeing that Luck isn’t going down field hardly at all (intended Air Yards), he’s not attacking the first down marker with any regularity (Air Yards to Sticks) and there is a reliance on an underachieving unit of receivers to gain an unrealistic amount of yards after the catch to keep this offense competitive and on the field.We also find that Luck is indeed more quantifiably accurate, and isn’t a victim of too many drops — don’t watch the Eagles game — or having a large number of accurate balls being knocked away by defenders. However, his aggressiveness percentage may be, in fact, skewed due to the receivers not getting separation early on in their routes. They’re being seen, or deemed aggressive, but it’s more likely a combination of a lack of receiver talent and some bad throws mixed in there.General Stats:Completion rate: 68.5% (10th)Pass yards: 662 yards (23rd)TD percentage: 4% (21st)INT percentage: 2.4% (T-17th)Yards per attempt: 5.3 yards (31st)Adjusted yards gained per attempt: 5.1 yards (29th)Yards per completion: 7.8 yards (32nd)Pass yards per game: 220.7 yards (24th)Net yards gained per attempt: 4.83 yards (28th)Adjusted net yards per attempt: 4.56 yards (28th)I can’t say that I expected there to be an AH HAH! moment in here somewhere between all of these numbers, but the general side of the statistical game looks even worse to me. Basically Youth Kenny Moore Jersey , it just confirms that Luck is checking down a lot, the receivers aren’t doing much after the catch, and that he’s probably thrown more interceptions than he should for running such a ‘conservative’ passing game.The yardage monster that Luck is, is not putting up those numbers this year, his touchdown numbers are on the down side of average thus far, but hey, he’s been really accurate up to this point. I know I tend to put a bit of a condescending tone to this, but the numbers are what they are, and the injury issues with the team, the offensive system, the talent level and everything else you want to add to it are all part of the formula.For all of the negative that this puts forward, I do actually believe that Reich and Luck will work together with the offensive line, receivers and running backs coaches to improve their offensive game plan. Attempting to limit Luck’s hits, get the running game going, lighting a fire under the receiver room and STILL trying to get the offense to third-and-manageable at a high rate is going to be a hard trick to pull off. But, we may at least start to see bits and pieces of alterations to the game plan as the weeks go by. Guys will get more comfortable up front, receivers more adept at getting open earlier in their routes and hopefully the running game will begin to take some of the pressure off. I think this is a reasonable assumption for the progression of Reich’s plan for the season, and I believe the Colts will need it in the back half of the season. Long before Alex Smith and Adrian Peterson joining the Redskins was ever a possibility, Trent Williams made up Hogs 2.0 T-shirts for Washington's offensive linemen.The original "Hogs" offensive line paved the way for three Super Bowl titles, so this group has a long way to go before they can be compared to that group.But with Williams at left tackle, Shawn Lauvao at left guard, Chase Roullier at center, Brandon Scherff at right guard and Morgan Moses at right tackle, the Redskins have a group that could continue bulldozing the way to victories this season."Their versatility is the key," coach Jay Gruden said. "They can run, they can pull http://www.coltsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-quenton-nelson-jersey , they're strong at the point of attack and they're pretty athletic. You can have a lot of versatility there."Versatility helped the Williams-led line bully the Arizona Cardinals in run-blocking and pass-protection, something it'll try to do again Sunday in the home opener against the Indianapolis Colts.Smith put up 255 yards passing in Week 1 and Peterson, Chris Thompson and the rest of Washington's ground game rushed for 182 yards in the kind of balanced showing Williams always believed could happen as long as all five starters are healthy."I've been saying the whole time that our biggest issue is just getting everybody on the field," Williams said. "I feel like when we have everybody on the field, we're more than confident that we can handle whatever job the coaches ask us to do."Obviously having everybody out there, when we've been out there in the past, we've done pretty good with a balanced offense, with running the ball and passing the ball."The Redskins ran the ball 42 times and attempted to pass 33 times at Arizona, a balance Gruden would love to keep up. The offensive line's equal proportion of being good in the run and pass games makes that possible.But no one's quite sure why the Redskins' line is almost equally good in each aspect. Offensive line coach Bill Callahan has linemen work a long time after practice, which gives them extra time to work together and improve any weakness."That just allows us to get little things polished up here or there," Roullier said. "Any little extra work you can get on your little fundamental techniques and whatnot, that's going to help you every day while you're out there."Other than Roullier replacing Spencer Long in the middle, this is the same starting offensive line Washington had to begin last season. Lauvao was re-signed after the draft and plugged back in, and the unit's continuity has been on display.Peterson said after one preseason game he can't wait to run behind this offensive line, and Smith has learned firsthand just what it can do to protect him and give him some room to run."I've been really impressed with those guys," Smith said. "I feel like they can do just about everything. They take a lot of pride in being able to do a lot. They don't get pigeonholed as a single player or as a group. They can do it all: They're good in space, they can pound it, they're good in pass pro. I think that's a strength not only of theirs but obviously ours as an offense and a team."Of course, the line is only the start of the offense's success. Williams gives a lot of credit for Washington's balance to Peterson and Thompson for making linemen look good."It makes our job easy because you got two dynamic rushers who can really take the ball all the way no matter what part of the field you're on and are pretty prolific coming out of the backfield," Williams said. "Having those guys clicking like they were, it does make the O-line's job easier, it makes the quarterback's job easier and it makes the coaches' job easier."NOTES: Gruden said WR Trey Quinn (ankle) was also placed on injured reserve along with Cam Sims. Each player had ankle surgery and could be healthy in six or seven weeks. ... WR Jehu Chesson was elevated from the practice squad to replace Quinn on the 53-man roster. ... WR Maurice Harris (concussion) could miss the Colts game, making recently signed Brian Quick more likely to be active.
