5. Andrew Luck made the most of what he had

Inheritiing a two-win team that was not at all a quarterback away and leading them straight to the postseason is quite impressive, and something that adds to Luck's legacy. However, he carried the team pretty often. To be frank, the Colts have to take a bit of the blame for what happened to Luck, he was one of the most sacked quarterbacks throughout the span of his career, and offensive line was not a huge focus until the very end.

This was also a rough drafting era for Indianapolis, with first-round misses like Bjorn Werner, Phillip Dorsett, and Malik Hooker. Luck did not get Quenton Nelson until his final season when the Colts had a solid offensive line that ironically seemed to get better after he retired.

While winning a championship would have been great for Luck's legacy, it just was not in the cards for the Colts during the time he spent in the NFL, their window would have truly opened up if he was able to play past the 2018 season, but that unfortunately did not happen for this franchise.

When it comes to the Hall of Fame, many of those guys are known for their ability to win, and most of them either have a Super Bowl, or have had very long NFL careers, Luck has neither.

However, he was able to lift a franchise out of one of the worst eras in franchise history in just one season and was one of the best quarterbacks in the league year in and year out. Having hardware as Comeback Player of the Year and four Pro Bowls should also help him out.
