We could still get Luck ...



Or, at least, I for one still think so. And the reason is in one question and one chance:

The Question: of all the teams that will pick in the top 10 (realistically where the Phins will be) which team has actually the most potential to be good in the shortest time? I say Miami, because its Defense is not bad, quite the contrary. Because there is some talent at RB (Bush, Thomas), WR (Marshall, Bess), TE (Fasano) and OL (Long, Pouncey). Because the Phins are coming from consecutive 7-9 seasons that could have been quite better just with better QB play. because the ST are again looking solid, after a bad streak. Sure, many other pieces are needed, to build a contender, a starting WR, one starting OG, one starting CB and one FS. But which team picking in the top-10 does not have holes? I think the Phins simply happen to have less.

The Chance: A.Luck will be in position to pick his own team, and he's close to someone with knowledge of the NFL (his father). Now, where would you want to go? To replace Manning in Indy, in a horrible team? or to leave under his shadow for who knows how long? Or to forgotten Seattle? Or to play for Dan Snyder? perhaps, you would try to steer your choice to the team with the most potential (see above), a winning tradition and with an owner that positively wants to have him?

If I were S.Ross I would order the new GM to immediately start negotiating for the 1st overall pick. Two 1st rounders (2012 & 2013) should do the trick, more is really trying to stretch your luck a bit too much ...

And, I really believe that what has been said (was it Simms?) that Manning would not 'allow' Indy to draft Luck is absolutely credible. If Peyton can play, I cannot see Indy drafting Luck but rather Polian getting as many picks as possible to restock the team for Peyton last run.

I amy live in dream's world but hey, it's free ...
