The Colts are 1-3 this year and 3-9 in Andrew Luck’s last 12 starts at quarterback. But if you think that’s Luck’s fault, one of the greatest players in Colts history says you’re looking at the wrong guy.
Reggie Wayne, the longtime Colt who was Luck’s No. 1 receiver in his rookie year, said on NFL Network that the real culprit in Indianapolis is a front office that hasn’t put enough talent around Luck.
“A lot of people are wanting to criticize Andrew Luck instead of really in my opinion going after what the big problem is,” Wayne said. “I think that big problem is a lot of the front office decisions.”
Wayne makes a good point: It’s not Luck’s fault that the Colts’ defense stinks. Colts G.M. Ryan Grigson lucked out when he inherited the first overall pick in the draft in 2012, but Grigson has not done a good job of building a team around his franchise quarterback. Until that changes, there’s only so much Luck can do.
