After 1 week, Colts' new QB still has work to do
Sunday, August 5, 2012
ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) -- Andrew Luck keeps getting rave reviews from longtime NFL players and coaches.
He's not sure he deserves them.
The No. 1 overall draft pick says he's still trying to learn the Colts offense, get in sync with his new receivers and figure out how to read NFL defenses.
Unofficially, Luck completed 122 of 162 passes with seven touchdowns and five interceptions in team drills during the first week of training camp. Yet the numbers that jump out to the Stanford grad are the interceptions.
Luck has often been hyped as the most NFL-ready quarterback since Peyton Manning entered the league in 1998, also with the Colts.
But the two-time Heisman Trophy runner-up still thinks there's a lot to learn -- and prove -- before he can join the same category.
