ANDREW LUCK: BEGINNERS LUCK

August 5, 2014
INDIANA SPORTS PAGE



Last season, Indianapolis Colts Pro Bowl quarterback ANDREW LUCK passed for 3,822 yards and became the first player in NFL history to pass for at least 8,000 yards (8,196) in his first two seasons. In 2012, Luck passed for an NFL-rookie record 4,374 yards.

“Overall, he is everything as advertised when he came out of Stanford,” says former NFL quarterback and CBS Sports’ NFL TODAY analyst BOOMER ESIASON. “A can’t miss player. If you ask any one of his teammates or coaches, he is the quintessential guy you want leading your franchise.”

 

The quarterbacks with the most passing yards in the first two seasons of a career in NFL history:

 

Andrew Luck Indianapolis Colts 8,196

 

Cam Newton Carolina Panthers 7,920

 

Peyton Manning Indianapolis Colts 7,874

 

Dan Marino Miami Dolphins 7,294

 

Ryan Tannehill Miami Dolphins 7,207


 

Luck, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, is also no stranger to comebacks.

 

Luck (10) has the most game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime in the first two seasons of a career since the 1970 merger.

 

“He just wills this team to victory,” says Colts head coach CHUCK PAGANO (right, with Luck). “He’s unbelievable. He’s able to stick to the process. It doesn’t matter what the score is, what the situation is, the guy just finds a way to make plays, finds a way to get out of the pocket, finds a way to extend. Obviously the guys believe in him. We can jump on his shoulders, jump on his back. We’re very, very fortunate that we have him.”
