Default Luck looks real good in opener

Just finished watching the requisite COlts Preseason opener living here in INDY. Andrew Luck looked very good in the opener, made no mistakes in his reads, and played well under pressure.

The new Defense also looks a lot better, even though it is the RAMS offense we are talking about. Bradford played till the mid-second quarter and looked OK at best.

INDY and DEN are both feeling pretty good about the past offseason after today.

QBR 148. Pretty damn good, but against the lambs in addition to being a practice game.

Dunno how long. 10-16, 188 yards, 2 TD no picks. One of the TDs was a little dumpoff to a kid named Brown who took it 61 yards.

I definitely fell asleep watching the second half, but Luck's second TD was far more impressive. He looked off the safety and threw a 23 yd bullet to Austin Collie in the endzone.

Matt Cassel went 5/6 for 67 yards. Listening to the radio today and they've pretty much crowned the Chiefs superbowl champions.

People pay WAY to much attention to the preseason

*edit: Should have read the first comment

Yeah, its a little different for the QB's in preaseason, especially ones who have never played a down in the NFL. STL blitzed him and showed him all kinds of coverages and he always made the right read and threw the ball away instead of trying to make a play.

The kid looked real good. INDY looked downright different as well. Much more physical along the lines, solid run blocking, and quality QB play. Plus, they have some decent receivers that they picked up.

INDY is not going to SUCK like they did last year. Mark it down. They might not be world beaters or even make the playoffs. However, they will be very competitive IMHO. Much better than most people think.

FYI, Donald Brown is the Colts starting RB.

Yeah, if the 2011 NFL season was a prize fight, Indy threw the fight for the big payoff.

But, I don't care we got PMFM.

Still pissed the Colts got so lucky to go from PFM to Luck. What are the chances?

entire first half. Very impressive, even in a meaningless preseason game

Was about 1/2 yard away from being a 3TD performance

At this point I think a lot of Colts fans are feeling pretty good about letting Manning go. Should be interesting to see how the kid plays when it counts, but really the Colts did what very few teams have ever had a chance to do: replace a HoF QB with a #1 overall pick who has the potential to be as good as the guy he is replacing. We've spent how long trying to replace Elway again?
