The Indianapolis Colts have a chance to strengthen their holding in the Suck for Luck campaign. After losing Monday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 0-4 Colts can create more distance between them and the 1-3 Kansas City Sunday.
Kansas City travels to Indianapolis after a 22-17 victory against the moribund Minnesota Vikings. Another win for the Chiefs, especially over the Colts, could spell doom in their shot at acquiring Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Speaking of the Vikings, they're now being bandied about as a new Suck for Luck candidate. However, until Christian Ponder proves he wasn't worth the first-round pick Minnesota used on him, it's hard to justify taking Luck. It's not out of the question that the Vikings still could have the first pick and trade it to a team in need of a quarterback.
Now, which team has the combination of extra draft picks, a just mediocre enough quarterback and the chance to have a selection in the top 10 that would be valuable enough to the Vikings?
All very serious questions, especially the one about grannie. All answers lead to the Browns being much more serious Luck candidates than they were a week ago.
Of course, there is the win-less Miami Dolphins. They're on a bye in Week 5, which could help the Colts go a half-game ahead in the 2012 NFL Draft order. But, the Dolphins have the kind of schedule the rest of the season that could lead to a gloriously awful 2-14 record. Unless Minnesota or Indianapolis beats them out, Andrew Luck will be wearing aqua, coral, white and navy. Yes, I looked that up.
