Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has been widely praised for his performances this preseason, but Luck isn’t reading his own press clippings.
“I think I’m still very much a rookie quarterback trying to figure it out,” Luck said on 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “By no means are we perfect in any sense and got a lot of work to do. I do feel like a rookie a lot of times trying to figure things out but I think we’re on the right path and that is what is important.”
Asked what it means to feel like a rookie, Luck said he doesn’t think he has the mental side of the game down the way a veteran quarterback should.
“I think every now and then you make boneheaded mistakes,” Luck said. “Call a play in the huddle and two seconds later you can’t remember one word that came out of your mouth and try to figure out what’s going on with the defense and you’re forgetting the snap count and just trying to stay alive out there.”
When asked if he thinks he’s NFL ready, Luck answered, “I hope by Week One I will be.” If the preseason is any guide, Luck will be more than ready.
