Now a Colt, Luck “excited to be part of such a storied franchise”

andrew-luck AP

It’s been expected for more than a year that Andrew Luck would be the first overall pick of the 2012 NFL draft, but now that it’s official, what Luck says most excites him isn’t being the first pick. It’s being an Indianapolis Colt.

Luck told PFT’s Mike Florio at Radio City Music Hall shortly after the pick became official that he’s thrilled to have found his new team.

“The big deal for me is to be part of the Indianapolis Colts,” Luck said. “That makes me happy. The fact that it’s No. 1 is special, it’s great, but I’m just excited to be part of such a storied franchise, get out there and get with my new teammates.”

Luck said he knew he’d be the first pick because Colts G.M. Ryan Grigson told him so, but that didn’t take any of the excitement out of draft night.

“I trust Mr. Grigson when he says he’ll take me,” Luck said. “I don’t think it diminished too much of the excitement, there was so much energy and excitement. What an experience getting to walk across that stage.”

Here’s Florio’s interview with Luck:

    Not nearly as storied as the great Steel City. So amazing, so superior.

    Storied franchise? I don’t see it. The Cilts have had five first overall picks, when some teams have had none. That means they are a terrible team. I think they tanked last season just to get Luck.

    Colts 3 NFL championships in Baltimore, 1 NFL championship in Indy.

  19. burgundyandgold says: Apr 27, 2012 12:46 PM

    Storied? Maybe in Baltimore. The Colts since they were stolen have been anything but storied. They lucked out with Peyton Manning otherwise all those Colt “fans” would still be rooting for the Cowboys.

  20. gweez76 says: Apr 27, 2012 12:47 PM

    Any team that counts antiquated trophies from a team from another city is by definition NOT storied.

    Dude, you’re gonna spend so much time on your arse looking up at the sky the next three years and hearing Peyton chants thats gonna be the story. They tanked to get you and now they’re gonna tank because of you. This is not gonna end well. Ya don’t screw the guy that made the team what it was , fake losing, get a #1 that shoulda went to someone who should’ve gotten in come in and roll over everybody. There’s a thing called balance in this life, some call it karma, some call it fair. You’ll be standing in the shadow and playing in the house of Peytons Spirit. I wouldn’t be you for 22 mil a year, let alone for four years. You’re a KMart rendition of a Peyton Manning. Snap, crackle, pop. Won’t be good at all. Promise. You got something that don’t belong to you. Ugly happens in those situations. You have to have been around a few years to understand that.

    Yeah, the story where they tanked in order to get you was a great one.

  36. Rockets GM says: Apr 27, 2012 1:48 PM

    Really, if you are such a hater to not know that the Colts organization is a storied one, then your IQ is less than your shoe size. Franchises move, fact of life. The Dodgers are a storied baseball team but we’re not pining for the Brooklyn days. The Colts have legendary championship winning QB’s spanning 2 cities and about 60 years of existence. Unitas… Manning and soon, Luck. I laugh at all your ignorant, hateful, jealous drivel.

  37. drewsylvania says: Apr 27, 2012 1:51 PM

  38. tonyugoh says: Apr 27, 2012 2:06 PM

    I’m amazed at how many people are rooting for this guy to fail. He seems like a genuinely good person who has worked incredibly hard to be the top pick in the draft. And as a Colts fan, yeah it sucked to see Peyton go but what’s done is done, Luck is out new quarterback and hopefully we can experience another era like the one we just had with Peyton.

  39. trojan33sc says: Apr 27, 2012 2:07 PM

     Just one question about this throwing games nonsense. If they were throwing games, why did they replace Painter as QB who just awful to go to Orvloski who did win 2 out 6 which almost put them ahead of the Rams? Why not stick with the guy who proved he gave you no chance to win?

    Don’t let facts get in the way of your idiotic opinion.

    how in the hell can a jags fan talk anything about the colts?? come on dude!! yr team blows, and always will blow, Luck is already leaps and bounds better than Gabbert and he hasnt even taken a nfl snap yet, only thing u guys have in MJD, and thats it!! make it to the playoffs and win the division, then we can talk!!! hahahaha jags fan, sell out a stadium then we can talk too!! we own u guys and have the reciept to vouch for it!!!

    They stole this team from the city of Baltimore in the middle of the night, and the only thing “storied” about them since they left is Peyton Manning.

     Read the story of why the Colts left and why the had to do it secretly. One branch of the legislature voted to seize the team by eminent domain from Bob Irsay and the other branch was about to vote on it. The state left him no choice. Both Irsay and the city played the stadium situation bad, but in the end the state backed him into a corner with only one escape route.

  44. truthhurtstoo says: Apr 27, 2012 2:49 PM

    I dont know how “stories” the Colts franchise is. Good regular seasons thanks to Peyton… not so much success in the post season.

    He’ll have his work cut out for him to be sure.

  45. shadeforourbattle says: Apr 27, 2012 2:51 PM

    @devildog911

    1 Superbowl does not make you the “most winningest team the past decade” in the with in anybody’s book. The only win that anybody in the NFL cares about is the ring. Period. Do you think Tom Brady and the Patriots brag about being the 2nd team in NFL history to have a perfect regular season record? The Packers had the most regular season wins in football last year, but do you think they brag to the NFL Super Bowl Champion Giants about it? Packers say, “Hey we are better than you because we won more games.” Giants say, “Yeah, that’s cool, we got the ring, and that means we are the champions of the league so take your regular season record and polish my trophy with it.” Get the picture?

  46. chazzmichaelmichaels says: Apr 27, 2012 2:53 PM

    I can’t hardly read this crap. Not even a Colts fan and the nonsense is making me ill. Get over the “stolen” in the middle of the night” BS. A lot of teams have moved. Quit crying. Yes the trucks moved at night, probably so your doucebag Dads and older brothers wouldn’t riot. Morons. And what are you pissy about? They legitimately lost a lot of games last year and the Ravens made the AFC Champ game. Quit ur boohoo ing. And yes, they sucked, enough to lose, didn’t throw those games. Watch the games. And attempt to speak intelligently on matters in which u actually have an educated opinion on.

  47. norcalniner says: Apr 27, 2012 2:59 PM

    Much respect for what Peyton did for that franchise, but STORIED? C’mon, that’s a bit of a stretch. Only New York (Giants), New England, Pittsburgh, Dallas, Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Oakland and San Francisco would qualify for that moniker.

    I read an article last summer written by somebody who’d done a comparison of the major pre-game shows to see which one wasted the most time with non-pertinent to football antics.

  49. andypro18 says: Apr 27, 2012 3:10 PM

    Seriously, the comments here are some of the most idiotic I’ve ever seen. Please allow me to correct some of your idiocy:

    1. The Colts are definitely one of the most storied franchises in NFL history. Certainly not THE most storied, but definitely in the top 10.

    2. Luck is exactly correct. Name ANY other franchise that has had four – count ‘em – FOUR different QBs win the MVP. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

    3. Anyone who thinks the Colts tanked last year obviously doesn’t watch football. Were they bad? Yes. Did they tank? Of course not, moron. The won two of their last three games, and were within a TD or won in 5 of their last 6.

    4. The Colts WERE the winningest team in the last decade. You see, counting how many games the team won is how they do it. As a matter of fact, the Colts won more games in the last decade than any team has ever won in any decade.

    But I don’t usually let blind idiocy get in the way of facts, but that’s just me.

    BONUS ROUND: Who are the most storied franchises in NFL history? Totally subjective, but I’d start with, in no particular order, Steelers, Packers, Bears, Colts, Cowboys, Raiders.

    Coming close are the Browns, Patriots, Chiefs (because of Hunt), and Giants.

    I assume there`s a chapter in the Oakland story called “The LA Years”!

  51. jgava19 says: Apr 27, 2012 3:15 PM

    Answer:
    The Colts were unhappy with the condition of the stadium they played in and Indianapolis offered them a new indoor dome.
    Robert Irsay, the Colts owner, had many problems with Baltimore and the stadium, Memorial stadium.

    1. Due to being far from the downtown area and any major highway, traffic to and from Colt games was very heavy and tied up traffic and trapped locals in their homes. It was also hard to find being about seven miles fron the downtown area on 33rd street. Many fans got lost getting to or coming from the stadium.

    2. The stadium was a very poor football stadium and the seating bowl ended at the fifty yard line, the end zone near 36th street was open taking away money making seats. It also no club level. It was far behind its time.

    3. The city of Baltimore would not allow the Colts to play at the NFL’s usual start time at one. Instead, they started at two which by law. Sports events were not allow to start before two on Sundays. Because of this the Colts had a hard time being on national T.V.

    4. The Orioles, the city’s baseball team, also used the stadium and had control over food sales, and parking fees even during football season despite the fact that both teams payed a rent fee.

    5. The team was playing poorly and attentence went to about 20,000 in a stadium that could hold 60,000.

    6. The city wanted to upgrade the stadium but both teams had different demands and the city could not make both happy so it did not upgrade the stadium.

    In the spring of 1984 the Colts lease on the stadium was up and Irsay wanted a new stadium or to move. Instead of working out plans with Irsay, Maryland’s senate passed a law that allowed the state to take the team from him by the powers of eminemt domain. All that was needed was the law to pass by the House of Delegates. That was enough for Irsay to decide to leave.

  53. 1historian says: Apr 27, 2012 3:28 PM

    Rocketsgm – your 1:48.

    John Unitas’ passing records will always stand. I don’t care what Peyton Manning did, I don’t care what Andrew Luck does.

    Johnny U. threw a TD pass in 47 consecutive games, and nary a one of them was thrown in Indy. Johnny U never had a restaurant in Indy, nor did Gino Marchetti or Alan Ameche or L.G. Dupre or Lenny Moore or Raymond (“don’t call me Ray”) Berry or Don Joyce or Jim Parker – ANY of them.

    The economics of the situation are what they are and I understand that. They suck and I understand that.

    If the irsay family had had the decency to leave the
    name and the colors in Baltimore, where they BELONG, IMO this would not be an issue any more. But the irsay family did not have the decency – the class – to do that.

    Not to mention that they deprived the fans in Indy of the right to name the team and choose the colors.

    one more thing (to everybody) – REAL men play football outside.

  54. cardmagnet says: Apr 27, 2012 3:31 PM

    It’s a shame that the only stories of the Colts are as follows :

    1. They alienate a fanbase by leaving Baltimore.

    2. They alienate a fanbase by cutting Peyton Manning.

    3. If you take out the early years with Unitas and the recent years with Peyton, the team is one of the worst in all of pro football.

    The Colts have been around for a long time and he never said “storied ” Indianapolis colts, so many unknowledged folks on here, colts were the first NFL team to have cheerleaders there, and the colts have a rich storied history, unlike Jacksonville who will soon be in LA

  56. 1historian says: Apr 27, 2012 3:38 PM

    One more thing

    FYI – Yes I am a fan of the BALTIMORE COLTS and I think what the irsay family did sucks and I call down bad karma on them whenever possible.

    Yes the indy colts won lots of games when PM was at the helm, but, to paraphrase an old song – “It don’t mean a thing if you ain’t got that ring!!”

    Yes the indy colts won ONE SB, but that ain’t much. And it is worth pointing out that PM was 8-9 in the playoffs, for all his vaunted skill.

    It’s not absolutely clear what your requirements are for a team to be ‘storied’. If we assume that the number of world championships is the vital criteria, than your list of example teams have 10, 3, 6, 5, 5, 13, 2, 3 and 5 championships. The Colts have 4 ( 1958, 1959, 1970 & 2006 ).

    @shadeforourbattle

    Point I’m trying to say is with all these people saying the Colts sucks is based on one losing year. I am referencing a fact that the Colts overall have won more games this past decade alone than any other teams. I never mentioned the Super Bowl did I? Troy Aikman have won 3 for the Cowboys in the 90’s but does that make them great now? Irrelevant now but it’s a fact but just like the fact that the Colts won more in regular season THIS DECADE than any other teams.

  60. mswravens says: Apr 27, 2012 4:08 PM

    The Baltimore Colts are a storied franchise!!!

    The Indy Colts are the spawn of the most classless family of owners in all professional sports. In the last 30 years they have done nothing but sucked other than during a stretch of the Peyton Manning era. 30 years hence we’ll be able say the same thing, except it will be the last 60 years…

    Quite honestly, I can’t articulate what my requirements were when I listed those 9 organizations. I do know that when I read the word “storied”, they’re the ones that came to mind.

    It don’t mean a thing, if you don’t win the ring. Champions are the best “winners.” Sorry, there is winning, and then there is Championship Title Winning. I guess you expect and accept less than excellence when it comes to winning. In the past decade the Giants, the Patriots, and the Steelers are better winners than the Colts. Championships are the only thing when it comes to winning. Period. How many of Jim Kelly’s or Dan Marino’s regular season wins, personal accomplishments, etc…do you think they would trade for just one title?

    norcalniner says: You lost all credibility when you purposely and blatantly left the 49ers off your list. Bitter much?

    Using the word ‘much’ at the end of a sentence like it was still 1995 much?

    No bitterness, I just forgot them. Still, they were virtually non-existent for 30 years until Walsh and Montana got there.

    That’s probably why he said winning and NOT Super Bowl winning, the last ten years in the REGULAR SEASON the Colts have the best winning percentage, hope that clarifies it better for you
