He’s proven a lot in his short NFL career, but Luck realizes there’s plenty more to do after he wasn’t able to be a victor on the Monday Night Football stage.
But he has a excellent chance next week to make up for it, thanks to the Colts’ date on Sunday night football with the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning, who will be coming back to Indianapolis.
Obviously the media will make a huge deal out of Luck vs. Manning. The young blood vs. the old guy. The new Colt vs. the old blood.
Luck entered the San Diego game keeping his interceptions down the first five games, but the defense was getting way too many sacks against Luck and the offense.
The stage is set for Luck to have his best performance of the season. He needs to outplay Manning and to have the Colt fans enjoying every minute of it.
Luck has shown a ton of maturity, especially at home to be at his best, and he’ll have incentive for sure next week. He has all the ability, but now as a sophomore professional quarterback, Luck needs to once again show he has grit and can get his team into the end zone more often than he did Monday night.
He needs to show he can win anytime and any place, regardless of the circumstances. To build up his confidence, he needs to beat Peyton Manning and the Broncos. It’s likely that he will.
