If you didn't know where he was picked in the draft, or know where Luck was picked in the draft, you certainly couldn't tell the difference from the game this past Sunday.
Actually you could. Pretty easily. One guy is going thru progressions better than half the quarterbacks in the league already. And this is no knock on Weeden, and recognizing the mistakes and issues that come along with being a rookie at that position - but if you can't tell the difference between Andrew Luck and Brandon Weeden up to this point in the season, I'm not sure what to say.
Perhaps a better comparison, to leave Brandon Weeden and homerism out for a second - and compare to overall number one's.....Andrew Luck is waaaay ahead of Sam Bradford in recognizing things at the line, going thru progressions and understanding what's going on around him. And Bradford is ahead of Weeden.
And Luck, like Weeden has a lotta garbage around him. Rookie TE's to depend on, old Reggie Wayne, and no running backs you've ever heard of. An offensive line issues. And he'll still triple that teams win total from last year.
I know a PLAYA when I see a PLAYA.
Other than everything you wrote, I completely agree with your assessment.
