Wow, He is on pace to break all kinds of rookie records, and he says he is only playing average.It speaks volumes for Luck's character. I can only imagine what his play would have to be like to grade himself with an "A"

I had exactly the same thought... If that game was C what his ceiling can be?

With most people I'd suspect this comment to have a degree of false humility to it, but not with this guy. I think he genuinely thinks he should be doing better at this point.

On a smaller side note to Mr Luck's personality, re watching some of the sound fx moments last night I'm starting to suspect he has quite a dry sense of humour but he plays it very "straight".

The reporter asks "If you grade yourself a C, what would a perfect grade look like". Luck says, "Win every game, 0 incompletions, and 0 interceptions would be good, so we will continue to work to get there!" I love that! Wanna know what he is working for? Perfection! Anything short of that is not good enough! How great is that! I do agree, Mr. Luck seems to be a very humble and capable leader. Again I say "What a great and exciting time to be a Colt fan"! :D

It was a creative way to take a jab at bob griffin. If Luck's a C it makes bobby a D- at best.

I see what he did there... :peek:

He knows he can improve, because he already has/is. More was asked of him than can be expected and as he delivers, or learns from a few mistakes, he keeps getting better and better. I think he is poised to have a monster second half of the season. He'll still make a mistake here and there, but less and less as he continues to get more experience on the field. I think he is genuine, no backhanded {ahem} 'compliments' to other players noted. So glad he is a Colt!

Andrew luck stated, Perfection to him means, Win every game and have no incompletions and no interceptions. It's never been done before and may never be done...He has set a goal though and thats what hes working for. It's amazing for us to be QB blessed with intelligent QBs who work their brain and body to the max for their team. (We could have Cutler or Rivers, whom cry after every mistake they make and blame their team!)

I already liked Luck before watching the NFL mic'd video, but afterwards I liked him even more. He obviously loves what he does and is a great teamate.

As far as his grade, it's good to see that he feels the need to improve. There have been rookie QBs before that came out hot and never got better, because they didn't feel the need to improve.

This is where he most reminds me of Manning. And yes, from watching his press conferences, I'm convinced it's genuine. Only when you saw near flawless execution and extreme efficiency did Manning ever seem satisfied. Luck is the same way. You heard him talking on Sunday about all 11 offensive pieces finally moving in unison for once.

It's a good way of thinking because it always leaves him feeling like he has to improve and evolve his game.

He's right..though..he hasnt been great...I expect him to be much better in the second half...

Except for those games with Houston and NE, This whole thing can only get better

He hasn't been great, but surely he's been better than average.

Win every game, 0 incompletions, and 0 interceptions would be good, so we will continue to work to get there! - Andrew Luck.

That is the drive for perfection that PM had. I'm glad to see AL has it too. The only thing better would be AL holding everyone accountable like PM did. When a leader leads by example and motivates everyone else to get on their level, you have a great thing.

As far as I know Luke so far, I think if he reached that aim, he would grade himslef a B+ perhaps...

I think Vader would give him an F after that whole Death Star incident... haha Just joking man, I agree though. No athlete feels like they have reached their ceiling, regardless of how well they play. See: Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers...

That's what I love about Luck, he's so humble! He's not plastered all over the airwaves with commercials and generating a whole bunch of noise. He's got his head on straight and is dedicated to playing good football. I love his personality and think he's a great roll model.

I suspect you'll see him holding teammates accountable sooner rather than later, but I also suspect his humility requires him to do more to establish himself first... kinda like his avoidance of becoming a marketing/advertising machine yet.

23rd scoring offense. 56 % completion percentage. 79 quarterback rating. That is a solid C in the passing era. At least he's honest.

Thats not even a fair comparison. Stats do not tell the whole story. His heart, coolness under pressure, and leadership abilty under center. All those traits must factor into a grade.

I'd say B+ with obvious areas to improve although thats not all on him, some of thats on our WR's and Arians for putting him in bad situations. Without him we would be wondering right now if we were going to win a game this season

Luck is better than his stats show. Numbers are with RGIII, except one: number of wins, in the end this number matters the most.

He hasn't been great, but surely he's been better than average.

But really.....check back.....he's left a lot of yards on the artificial turf.......

I think for him...he HAS been average...and he knows it.. With his arm and composure.....and rookies around him getting settled in...

.....keep it quiet.......but I think he'll break 5,000 yards

    • Whens the last time a 5 win team had so much hype?
      The hype is due to several issues....   First,  they were playing their best ball of the season at the end last year.   Especially Bortles,  so if your young QB is emerging, then the arrows are pointing up.   Second,  in addition to a great draft,  most on the defensive side of the ball,  they're also adding last year's 1st pick, Dante Fowler,  who got hurt during rookie training camp.   So,  they literally have TWO 1st round defensive picks.      They're adding Fowler,  Ramsay,  Jack just for starters and they have other good defensive draft picks......   so that defense already has more play makers,  more difference makers than most,   and I'm including our own Indy defense.       We'd kill to have their players.   This is why there is so much hype around J'Ville....  
    • 2015-2016 Indiana Pacers (And rest of the NBA) Season
      We'd be right in line for a top 10 pick next year with that young line up with no good shooters to this point in there careers. We really just need a couple moves to put be in position to make a finals run and chemistry I think
    • Nate Irving Lost 20 Pounds?
      Bell came into the league at 244.    HIs first year was a first year.     Showed flashes but it quickly became apparent to Bell that he needed to drop some serious tonnage.      Not just 5-10 pounds,  but some serious weight.   Suddenly he's 224.    He's so much quicker,  so much more sudden,  his ability to make tacklers miss or get a bad angle on him is so impressive.      He has quickly re-invented himself.   Bell is the guy I once thought Trent Richardson could be if he lost 20 pounds and played in the teens.    Anywhere from 219-213 and I think Trent would have been a completely different football player.     But he had no interest in working hard.    If Irvin has lost 20 pounds and is now moving around much better,  than the Colts just found a much better linebacker than we anticipated.       Good for us!     
    • Very nice Joe Philbin article
      If there is anyone questioning him about his ability to coach a NFL o line, read this.   The more I read about him the more excited I get about our o line.   http://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2016/05/25/master-teacher-joe-philbin-returns-his-roots-colts/84877632/

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
