Andrew Luck

Indianapolis Colts



The quarterback class of 2012 turned out to be one of the better ones in NFL history. In fact it was so good that when all is said and done, it might go down as the best of all time. Four of the 11 QBs drafted were taken in the first round; five started 15 or more games; three others combined for another 14 starts; and three would lead their teams into the playoffs.

However, through it all, two names stood out above the rest—Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck.

Though different in their style of play, Griffin and Luck would come out of their rookie seasons looking very much the same. In their first experience as NFL starters, both quarterbacks went 8-4 in conference play, were over .500 in their division, and neither one ended up with a losing record either at home or on the road. Andrew Luck led the Colts to the playoffs with an 11-5 record while the Redskins would do the same finishing at 10-6. RGIII, however, would personally go just 9-6 with Washington’s 10th win coming at the hands of yet another rookie, Kirk Cousins.

The likenesses between the two are astounding. They both even set two rookie QB records apiece.

Here are the individual numbers from Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck’s rookie seasons:

When they were selected first and second overall in the 2012 NFL Draft, there was no doubt their names would be linked to one another for all eternity. Now, after leading their teams to the playoffs while breaking records along the way, their path to the Hall of Fame seems destined to be parallel as well.

Chuck Pagano said he wants Andrew Luck to stop playing like a linebacker


Pyro's take: Colt fans and fantasy owners do not want to see Andrew Luck hurt for any reason. They experienced what it did to the team last season, and that was enough.

Head coach Chuck Pagano said on the NFL Network “Get him healthy, keep him healthy, keep him protected, keep him upright,” Pagano mentioned it was his top priority for Luck. “He plays the position like a linebacker, with a linebacker’s mentality.”

Jim Irsay confirmed Andrew Luck has recovered from his lacerated kidney.


Pyro's take: Irsay revealed Luck has fully recovered from the kidney injury suffered Nov. 8 against Denver.

“He’s good to go. He’s healed,’’ Irsay said. “He’s really looking forward to a great offseason and getting ready (for 2016).

And since we’re on the topic of moving forward, Irsay is optimistic he’ll be able to lock up Luck with a long-term deal. The Colts picked up the fifth-year option on Luck’s rookie contract that carries a ’16 base salary of $16.155 million.

“I think there’s a good chance we would get something done this offseason,’’ Irsay said. “Being this early, there’s no reason to think we have had major negotiations yet, but that’s going to be happening as this month gets later and March comes in.

“I don’t think there’s a debate on what he means to our franchise. I really see Andrew here, God willing, for a really long time.’’

Colts hired Brian Schottenheimer as QBs coach.


Pyro's take: Brian Schottenheimer has shown that he can make quarterbacks play at a greater potential. Examples have been Sam Bradford in St. Louis and Mark Sanchez with the Jets. He will work under Rob Chudzinski and directly with Andrew Luck.

Andrew Luck (kidney) has still not been medically cleared.


Pyro's take: The door isn't closed on quarterback Andrew Luck playing Sunday against Tennessee, but he has still yet to be medically cleared. Coach Chuck Pagano said he, Luck, owner Jim Irsay and general manager Ryan Grigson will discuss whether Luck (kidney/abdomen) will play if he is cleared in time. Luck has missed the past six games and eight games total this season. -- Mike Wells

Chuck Pagano had "no update" on Andrew Luck's (kidney)


Pyro's take: Mike Chappell via Twitter "#colts HC Chuck Pagano: Andrew Luck. No update."

"uncertainty" about whether Andrew Luck (kidney) will return in 2015.


Pyro's take: Adam Schefter via Twitter "Though J. Irsay suggested Andrew Luck could return from lacerated kidney this week, uncertainty exists about when/if he'll return this year."

Luck will most likely return only if the Colts make the playoffs. Based on the last two weeks that is most likely not going to happen.

Andrew Luck (kidney) and coach Chuck Pagano's Monday press conferences "convinced" that Luck will practice on Wednesday.


Pyro's take: Mike Chappell via Twitter "After listening to Luck and Pagano, I'm still convinced Luck practices Wednesday. That's just me. Luck leaned too much in that direction."

Its still uncertain when he will return, even if he does practice Monday, he still may not return this weekend.

Andrew Luck (kidney) said he's been throwing a "fair, intense amount" and is pain-free.


Pyro's take: Zak Keefer via Twitter "Luck says he's throwing a "fair, intense amount." He's definitely making progress. Says throws are pain free."

Signs are positive for Luck returning by the end of the season, but he is still at least one or two weeks away.

Andrew Luck has been diagnosed with a lacerated kidney, and will be sidelined 2-6 weeks.


Pyro's take: Kevin Bowen mentioned via Twitter "And the adversity doesn’t stop for the Colts. Andrew Luck out two-to-six weeks due to a kidney laceration."

"We won't put Andrew out there until he's ready," coach Chuck Pagano said. "It is one heck of a blow."

Pagano says it's "way too early" to speculate on a return date. Luck suffered the injury on a fourth quarter scramble in Sunday's win over the Broncos, but didn't leave the game. He was sent for further testing on Monday. It's a hammer blow to the Colts' odds of finishing over .500, but won't end their pursuit of another AFC South title. Matt Hasselbeck is a competent backup, and the Colts play in the worst division in football. As for fantasy owners, it downgrades all Indy's skill players. T.Y. Hilton is a mid-range WR2, with Donte Moncrief now firmly a WR3.- Per Rotoworld.com

Matt Hasselbeck will be the Colts' starter after their Week 10 bye.


Pyro's take: Matt Hasselbeck will now be the Colts starter after the Colts announced that Andrew Luck has kidney and abdominal injuries.-Per CBS

"Hasselbeck started two games in place of a banged up Luck earlier this season, and he will get another chance to work as the Colts' starter with Luck injured again. The Colts are on bye in Week 10, which will give Hasselbeck additional time to prepare for his next start. Both he and the rest of his Colts teammates will return to action in Week 11 against a Falcons defense that ranks 19th in the league against the pass."

Andrew Luck (shoulder, questionable) was a full participant in Friday's practice.


Pyro's take: Colts beat writer Zak Keefer has reported via twitter "Despite Chuck Pagano saying he was limited, Andrew Luck listed as a full participant in Friday's practice. A good indication he'll play."

Chuck Pagano states Andrew Luck very close to playing next week


Pyro's take: Mike Wells Indianapolis Colts beat writer via twitter "Asked Pagano about Luck's status... "He's really, really close." Asked directly if he'll play vs NE: "Supremely confident." We both laughed"

It looks like Andrew Luck is ready to go and probably reving his wheels to get back out there. A nice came to come back to as well.

Colts "still expect" Andrew Luck (shoulder) to start


Pyro's take: Ed Werder mentioned via twitter "#Colts still expect Andrew Luck to start vs #Texans. Re-signed Josh Johnson because backup Matt Hasselbeck has been sick."

No reason to get concerned about Luck not being healthy because of the resigning. He should play.

Andrew Luck "take it day-to-day" with (shoulder).


Pyro's take: The Colts barely escaped with a win and Andrew Luck got much needed rest for his shoulder against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“Andrew woke up this morning and wasn’t quite there and didn’t have the arm strength and all that stuff,’’ Pagano said. “We decided to go with Matt.’’

Luck is Listed as Out Week #4, Yet Warming Up?

Luck out

Pyro's take: It is being reported on the NFL network that Andrew Luck will not play in Week #4. Matt Hasselbeck would get the start, plus they just added Josh Johnson this week. However, he is warming up on the field. This is a confusing situation, stay tuned. If indeed Luck sits, as is being reported, I will be downgrading their WRs, but Gore should get more work w/ HAsselbeck under center.

Andrew Luck status still in question


Pyro's take: According to Jason La Confora via twitter "Still some very real concern within Colts about Luck's status for Sun. Made good strides today but could end up being a very close call"

Being a short week, I would be actually surprised to see him play

Had no Luck when facing Blitzes


Pyro's take: Andrew Luck struggled when it came down to the Buffalo Bills blitzing. Luck was 10-for-25 with two interceptions against blitzes Week 1.

Luck was 16-of-24 with one touchdown and no picks when the Bills did not bring extra defenders.

Playing Week 17

The Colts are marching out their normal starters for week 17, and that includes Andrew Luck. According to Stephen Holder via twitter The Colts "are going to generally speaking play to win vs Tennessee despite having nothing to gain. They need to build some steam"

Pyro's take: After getting blown out by the Cowboys on Sunday, its important to move on and get a solid start once the playoffs begin. How much Luck plays is another question. They are not going to want to risk his health, so if they have the game in hand, they will probably begin to pull the starters. Good news for those in a Championship game in week 17.

Any Stopping Luck

Andrew Luck has been tearing up the NFL this season, and has been getting fans cheering for him and his MVP status. On Thursday Night Football, he didnt disappoint.

Once again he threw for over 300 yards, making it the fourth straight game in doing so. He also added three touchdowns making that the last four of five games of hitting that mark.

On the season Andrew Luck, has thrown for 1,987 yards and 17 touchdowns with only seven interceptions. He has also rushed for 93 yards and two scores.

Pyro's take: He continues to improve and as far as progression goes, he has outdistanced Peyton Manning comparably to his first three years as a pro. Keep in mind they didn't throw as much as they do now. but still impressive.

I shouldn't have to tell you that Luck should continue to be your only quarterback at this point, and should continue to do so when he faces the Bengals next week.

Texans Look at Luck

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien knows where the Colts rely on their success, and in this he states: “Everything that they do offensively, to me, is impressive," O'Brien said on Monday. "It all goes through Andrew Luck."

O'Brien went on to list eight reasons why he believed Andrew Luck is such a great quarterback:

1. "He’s a very bright guy."
2. "He’s a guy that is leading the league in a lot of different categories or he’s in the top five at least."
3. "A very accurate passer."
4. "The thing that is really impressive about him is—aside from his intelligence and all that—is his playing strength."
5. "He’s a very strong player."
6. "He’s very difficult to sack."
7. "He’s a guy that stands in the pocket."
8. "He’s a very tough guy."

Pyro's take: Andrew Luck is all these things, and is having the best year of his short career. He should continue to do what he does, and remain in your starting line-up.

Luck completed 32-of-49 passes for 312 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Colts' 20-13, Week 5 win over the Ravens. He made a couple of bad decisions and had a hard time throwing to the flat, but overall, was solid. This week he faces the Texans, another tough defense, but he should remain your starting quarterback.
