Do we give Andrew Luck the benefit of the doubt? It’s encouraging that the rehabbing quarterback is throwing footballs again, but we learned our lesson last offseason regarding his health updates. The Colts went 4-12 without Luck in 2017, and it’s frankly easier to envision that happening again than it is to imagine the 28-year-old returning to Pro Bowl form in 2018. nike nfl jerseys for cheap
Fact is, he hasn’t been in that form since 2014, and he’s missed 26 games since then. Even if he suits up Week 1, nobody knows how effective he will be.
The Colts can’t be ranked in the bottom five so long as Luck, T.Y. Hilton and Anthony Castonzo are on the roster. But there still isn’t nfl jerseys nike cheap enough talent on defense or along the offensive line, and they were oddly quiet in free agency.
Even with Luck active and effective, the Colts will have trouble keeping up with everybody else in the increasingly strong AFC South.

Despite finally getting back to the playoffs last season, the Bills ranked 21st in the NFL in DVOA—and that was with the departed Tyrod Taylor playing the most valuable role on the team, according to Pro Football Reference. Now Taylor, Preston Brown and E.J. Gaines are gone, and the Bills are overpaying Star Lotulelei and Trent Murphy on the defensive side of the ball.
Barring a shockingly strong 2018 season from (fill in the blank) at quarterback,cheap nfl nike jerseys china the Bills look like they’ll win between six and nine games for the eighth consecutive year. Call it football purgatory.
