There’s a lot of quarterback talk right now. And much like last season, one of the league’s premiere young play-callers is falling by the wayside.
Which begs the question; what’s Andrew Luck been up to this offseason? Well, I’m glad you asked. He’s been on the football field. A lot. Imagine that. And in turn he’s making it abundantly clear that he has every intention of entering next season much improved.
Good stuff. But what part of his game does he plan to focus on?
“Yeah, it’s a cliché, but (I want to improve) everything — especially accuracy. A lot of that comes with footwork and understanding football. I think I have a better understanding than I did at this time last year, which I would hope to be the case. There are certain times where I went out last year where I felt … not that I wasn’t prepared … but that it was really hard to see things. It got natural as the year went on, and I think that’s natural for a young quarterback. So it was footwork in terms of accuracy, and there’s always red-zone and getting touchdowns in the red zone. After watching a lot of games — all of the games, really — you realize the chance to score touchdowns, not field goals, in the red zone is a big deal.”
This should be music to the ears Indianapolis Colts’ fans. With Peyton Manning no longer under center, it seems as if Luck will carry on the outstanding work ethic of his predecessor. This kid has a bright future, as do the Colts.
