With the Redskins huge trade do Colts fans still want Luck or trade?

Fans at a California sports bar could not believe the huge deal that Washington gave to STL for the rights to pick RG3, since its all assumed Luck is the Colts pick. The obvious question they posed to me as a huge Colts fan, yes still even after Manning is gone, is if Cleveland came with a better offer would I want the Colts to take the deal.

I kind of felt like a game show where you have to pick between what's shown and the potential behind curtain 2. Discussion ranged from some not being sold on Luck, although all can understand the logic if he is SUPPOSED to be the best QB this year and you have a need for that position. Most agreed if Cleveland presented a bigger deal and packaged their two #1 picks and their #2 this year, next years #1 next year, and a player or two really we all couldn't make the deal fast enough no matter how much experts loved him. The thought was the way the Colts team is constructed this upcoming year so far even with Luck and a few additions/ draft picks they're still looking potentially at a top 5 pick next year and maybe even the top pick so why put your QB cornerstone with this team now and risk serious injury or damaging his confidence which we seen before with other QB's that never get it back. Not all QB's are like Manning or Aikman and survive the fire with a terrible team which right now could very well be the worst in the league. Also the league has shown you can even develop late round QB prospects into SB winners or Pro Bowlers. Next year you have also have three top QB prospects which no doubt by this time next year at least one will be called the best QB since ______ (fill in the blank) so they could even use a QB vet next year and go in with one of those high rated QB's next year with the extra picks from the trade.

Colts fans already know next year is shot and ok with that since they have long term more in mind so this would be the time to think about a deal. So Colts fans are you going to take the deal or take behind what's behind curtain 2?
