1. Andrew Luck: Heating Up?
After an initial slow start to training camp–presumably from shaking off the rust after a season-ending injury that cost him the Colts final 7 regular season games, Andrew Luck finally caught fire on Monday:
Of course, this is great news for the Colts, as the success of their season will ultimately rest on Luck’s burly shoulders.
While the supporting cast has to ultimately play up to par, the Colts need Luck to become the superstar quarterback that the franchise fully knows he’s capable of being if they want to seriously contend for a Super Bowl championship.
No Monday’s practice wasn’t a primetime game on Monday Night Football, but hopefully it’s a sign of great things to come for the Colts franchise quarterback. It’s certainly encouraging to see Luck back out there, healthy, and going right again.
Yes, like the rest of his Colts teammates, Luck endured a disappointing season throwing for just 15 touchdowns to 12 interceptions, throwing for a career low passer rating of 74.9, and being only 2-5 in starts this past season.
However, he’s just one season from throwing for a league-leading 40 touchdown passes and carrying the Colts to the AFC Championship Game.
If Luck can regain his prior form and remain fully healthy, he has a great opportunity to not only become the leading contender for the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year, but also a potential league MVP candidate.
