This week's whiteboard guest features comic and impersonator Frank Caliendo and well... all his other voices!!! MIKE: They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well, over his 1st 2 seasons, Andrew Luck has done a pretty nice imitation of an elite quarterback. JEMELE: So we brought in our IMITATION EXPERT Frank Caliendo to help explain why Luck is about to make the LEAP and become the real thing: the best quarterback in the league. FRANK as Jon Gruden: I’ll tell you what man, I love Andrew Luck. You take a look at this guy… He’s likable AND scary at the same time. He’s like a muppet version of Wolverine from the X-Men, man. This guy… This guy’s the future of the NFL. MIKE: To start with, you need to recognize just how great he’s already been. No quarterback in NFL HISTORY has thrown for more yards in his 1st 2 seasons in the league. FRANK as John Madden: Yeah and when you think about it, you would think that that would be Brett Favre. And it’s not. It’s Andrew Luck. And when it’s Andrew Luck and not Brett Farve… I mean, I mean… That’s tellin’ you something right there. I mean, when you’re not Brett Favre and you’re BETTER than Brett Favre… I mean…There ya go. JEMELE: In fact, Luck joined Peyton Manning and Dan Marino as the only quarterbacks to average at least 3,600 yards and 23 touchdowns in their 1st 2 seasons. FRANK as Ron Jaworski: I watched 132 hours of video tape of Andrew Luck and I’ll tell you what - There’s never been a quarterback with that much ABILITY and that’s why I truly BELIEVE Andrew Luck will BEEE the greatest quarterback... ever. MIKE: He’s not just a stat stuffer either. Luck already has led 10 game winning drives in his career, the most through 2 seasons in the last half century. FRANK as Chris Berman: Say what you will about the people who get stats in a buncha games that don’t even matter. Andrew Luck is the kinda guy who does it when it counts. Yeaaaaah. JEMELE: The scary thing is that Luck is just getting comfortable. MIKE: Over the last 20 years, 9 QBs selected No. 1 overall made at least 10 starts in their 3rd season. All had one thing in common…a career high in touchdown passes. FRANK as Mike Ditka: Yeah look here, I gotta be honest with ya. I’m listenin to some of those stats you’re sayin… I don’t even understand what you’re talkin about. JEMELE: That’s what we call the 3rd-year leap. They also saw a 17 percent increase in passer rating and a 12 percent increase in yards per game compared to their 1st 2 seasons. MIKE: If Luck matches those increases, he’ll throw for over 4500 yards with a passer rating of 95. Only Peyton Manning and Drew Brees did that last year. FRANK as John Madden: And that’s an incredible company to be in. I mean you look at Peyton Manning and Drew Brees and you think… I mean these guys are two of the greatest ever. And Andrew Luck… I mean, I mean he’s about to be on of the greatest ever. That’s like the three amigos! Remember that movie, that was pretty good! JEMELE: So what happens when Luck settles into his 3rd-year groove? MIKE: I’ll tell ya what, He goes from the best young quarterback in the NFL, to simply the best quarterback in the NFL. FRANK as Jon Gruden: I’ll tell ya what man, that’s only a change of one word, but it means a lot right there, man. JEMELE: Because Numbers Never Lie.
