Andrew Luck Spectacular in Debut
By: The Football Girl | Posted: August 12, 2012
The Andrew Luck-Peyton Manning comparisons are about to heat up. Luck’s debut could not have gone any better. His first pass was a 63-yard touchdown to Donald Brown, which conjured up images of Peyton Manning’s first NFL pass, a short pass to Marvin Harrison which Harrison took to the house. In case it needs to stated, throwing a touchdown on your first NFL pass is not normal.
While that pass alone was not enough to alert Canton to get moving on Luck’s Hall of Fame bust, the rookie showed other glimpses of greatness. He was poised in and out of the pocket against a Rams defense that brought legitimate pressure. He found narrow openings to receivers like rookie T.Y. Hilton and Austin Collie. He was able to take advantage of broken coverage by the Rams to find Collie in the end zone. And he just displayed a timing and rhythm that was very Manning-esque.

Luck’s final numbers in just a little under one half played: 10/16 for 188 yards and 2 touchdowns.
There will be naysayers who proclaim “it’s just the Rams,” but it was truly an impressive start to a career that should be exciting to watch.
