Andrew Luck is exactly who we thought he was
Luck, who has only 10 touchdowns and 8 interceptions, hasn't been the flashiest QB in the league through his first few games, and he isn't running all over the field like Griffin has done. He's not putting up the gaudy numbers that Cam Newton or Peyton Manning had in their rookie years, either.
Still, the Colts are a rather surprising 5-3, only a year after finishing 1-15.
That record has them tied with teams like Peyton Manning's new team, the Denver Broncos, as well as traditionally elite teams like the Patriots and Steelers.
The Colts are legitimate playoff contenders, and it's largely due to their young QB, and particularly the great rapport that he has built with his receivers, especially veteran Reggie Wayne.
Wayne has always been an outstanding WR, but he's having a career year this year thanks to an incredible working relationship with Luck. Every game, it seems like they make great plays that emphasize the level of communication and understanding between the two of them.
Andrew Luck is developing extremely quickly into one of the game's best quarterbacks. This week was a glimpse into what his future will be, and there should be no doubt that he'll be an outstanding QB for years to come. Taking nothing away from outstanding young QBs like Cam Newton, RG3, and even Ryan Tannehill, who has shown flashes of excellence, Luck is the future face of the NFL, just like the Colts were hoping, when they drafted him.
