Andrew Luck Implications

March 7, 2012 at 2:02 am Leave a comment

With Peyton being released, Andrew Luck is going to be the clear-cut starter for the Colts. Luck has been heralded the best QB prospect since John Elway, adding a lot of expectations to a young man who has yet to throw an NFL pass. To top that off, he will be replacing arguably the greatest QB of all time, and trying to bring a franchise back from oblivion. This is all with a new coaching staff and new front office, so apart from the players being remaining, this is almost like a rookie QB coming into an expansion franchise, with no continuity or system implementation.

I do not mind when rookie QB’s start, and get thrown into the fire right away, but usually these rookies have a safety net placed under them in the form of a veteran QB. I would imagine this will be the case with the Colts, and no I do not mean Orlovsky or Collins, I mean a little bit more of an upgrade from those two.

Rookie QB’s always are a bit more of a bust risk than other positions, and Luck will be no exception. In fact, his bust factor in my opinion seems to be growing with every day. I know he has a good work ethic, and is smart, and has all the right physical and mental tools needed for the position, but he has been heralded the second coming before taking an NFL snap. With all these expectations, Luck needs to win or perform well right away, or he may go down as the biggest bust in NFL history.
