    I'll go ahead and be the negative douche. One game was against the 2-14 Texans, one game was against the Packers defense playing like absolute ****, and one game was against the Chiefs after they lost a significant number of starters.

    I was really impressed by his performance against KC, and somewhat by his performance against GB, but a lot of his "comebacks" seem really stretched. A lot of them are against some bad teams that should never have been going toe-to-toe with them in the first place, and some of them are from games where both teams went back and forth and it wasn't really that much of a "comeback". IMO his most impressive one was the one that I never hear talked about, which was the SEA one.


    CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM!

    And in the other 96 games by the other QBs...they didn't play any poor teams either? If it's so easy to do against poor teams because the teams are poor and/or have poor defenses....how come the rest of the ****ing NFL can't do it? You can't tell me that all 96 games by the other QBs were against good teams with good defenses.

    Well this thread is about coming from 17+ points down. Not sure how that would be a back and forth game. Being down by 17+ points is essentially being blown out.

    It's not easy to do because it typically requires a bad team to somehow jump ahead of a good team that is capable of coming back. I'm sorry, but a dozen teams could probably have came back against the 2-14 Texans, they shouldn't have ever been down that way. I won't say that every QB could've done the KC and GB games, but those just really weren't as impressive as they're made out to be if you watched them. GB'd defense looked helpless and KC's team was injured. Luck just gets all sorts of hype for finding his way into these situations.

    Those are just three of his "ZOMMG GoAT comebacks" that announcers scream about every time he comes on the field. I'm referring to his other games, because hearing announcers and the media talk about him you'd think he singlehandedly destroyed his way through all the best teams in the league.

    Even though it doesn't mean much that's kinda crazy. 17 pts to any NFL team is a climb and to have almost as many wins in 6 attempts as the rest of the NFL in 96 is still pretty impressive.

    Its the NFL. Every team is good and being down 17 points is tough to comeback from. No matter what quarter it is.

    Pretty clearly, IMO. This stat doesn't surprise me at all.

    This reminds me of when he came back against KC and I was out drinking and I came back the next day to like 50 HAHAHAHAHA NORM ALEX SMITH IS A BEAST posts from the first half and all those people gone by the end of the game.

    LOL, had to give AS some props for playing so well but I had guaranteed they'd lose that game.

    The premise of this thread is kind of dumb. Lucks is 3-0 in come backs from 17+ points down and the rest of the league is 5-0. If ya didn't win then it wasn't a comeback, it was just a loss where you were getting blown out early. You wouldn't say something like "The Colts were down 17 to nothing in the first half but then mounted a comeback and lost 17-0 (or 34-0 or 24-3, etc).

    The next question on this, why are the Colts disproportionately falling behind by 17 or more points in the first half compared to the rest of the league? They did it 6 times. The average for the rest of the NFL is 3.1 times in that same span. Why are they doing it twice as often as the NFL average?
