In his debut with the Indianapolis Colts Andrew Luck looked like what a number one draft choice should look like. Luck came out blasting, he passed for 188 yards and threw for 2 touchdowns. The Fans in Indianapolis were hit with amnesia, they were left asking Peyton who? Yes sir, Andrew Luck immediately took over as the Colts new franchise quarterback. This weekend Luck will face a much tougher test when the Pittsburgh Steelers host Andrew Luck and his Colts at Heinz Field.
The Steelers lost their first game to the Eagles by 1 point in their first preseason game, that is for starters. The other thing that will have the Steelers up for this game will be trying to embarrass the Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians who spent years with the Steelers organization. Ben Roethlisberger was fuming with the thought of Arians leaving Pittsburgh at the end of last season. The Colts will not only be facing a Steelers team that battled the Eagles and fell short by a point, they will be battling a team that is pissed one of their coaches is with the Colts.
One thing that could be in Andrew Luck’s favor is the Steelers only had one sack last week. This fact could go either way. The Steelers may decide to bring against Luck, after all he is a rookie only starting his second game in the NFL. If the Steelers do decide to bring on the pass rush they are going to have to watch out for Luck’s quick release, he gets rid of the ball as fast as Manning use too. This is going to be a much Better test of the Indianapolis Colts and Andrew Luck. I for one am looking forward to it. I want to see how Andrew Luck will respond….
Hey be sure to tell us how you think Luck and the Colts will do Sunday, just leave your replies below…..
