It’s time for all Indianapolis Colts fans to move on from the Peyton Manning era.
There’s a new sheriff in town and his name is Luck.
As I’ve said many times before, I’ve been a huge fan of Luck ever since his days at Stanford University. He has a cannon arm and makes throws that make me say, “WOW. Unbelievable.”
He has mobility, touch, arm strength and the football IQ to become one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game of football.
On Sunday, Luck made plenty of great throws against one of the best defenses in the NFL, on paper at least. He avoided getting sacked by Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware and played very well against a Denver secondary that features three All-Pros (But all 12s know that Kam Chancellor is leaps and bounds better than T.J. Ward).
It will be very interesting to see how Luck performs in his third meeting with the great Tom Brady. The Colts lost to the Patriots 42-20 this year, and were knocked out by the Pats in last year’s divisional round.
The reason why Luck is at four is the two interceptions. Luck hasn’t learned to throw the ball away and instead forces the ball into tight windows. Reminds me a lot of Brett Favre…
