Andrew Luck excited about Frank Reich’s plans for Colts’ offense

Andrew Luck did not address his rehab in a video chat with the team website Thursday, but he did express excitement about Frank Reich’s plans for a “multiple, attack, up-tempo offense” that’s “going to be aggressive.”

That sounds great,” Luck said, via “I know all the best offenses that I’ve been a part of in my career we’ve not been static and we’ve attacked. And I’m sure he’ll have a great flavor and we’ll involve as many people as we can, and attacking defenses is what it’s all about.”

The Colts’ new head coach has worked with Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers, Carson Wentz and Nick Foles, and Reich served as Jim Kelly’s backup with the Bills.

“Going back to his playing days, he’s incredibly successful, and he’s been around some awesome quarterbacks,” Luck said. “And I hope I can learn from him and ask him how Peyton or Carson or Philip did it, and find the best way for me or for whatever Colt quarterback way that is. I hope I can give him the most that I can give, and that he can help me get out of me the most that’s there.”

Luck missed all of last season while recovering from shoulder surgery. He has not started throwing yet, General Manager Chris Ballard said last week.

  1. they should get somebody who cares about defense and ground game. asking luck to drop back 40 times a game and emphasizing offense was how this dudes body got destroyed in the first place

  2. Andrew Luck is not a very good QB. OLine aside. Not a bad one, but he doesn’t live up to his pre-draft hype. He makes bad decisions and it hurts the team. And I am not sure he comes back from his injuries.

  3. “Andrew Luck did not address his rehab…”
    Until he does, there’s no need to read any further about what this team can accomplish in 2018.

  4. Luck does not have any media requirements, so I think his speaking publicly at all could be taken as a positive.

  5. Luck is a fan like all of us. And he’ll likely get to watch it develop with the rest of us, if his shoulder doesn’t become what it once was. The bigger question may be what the next QB of the Colts thinks of it.

  6. The Colts’ offense has been the most poorly coached unit in the NFL over the last five years. Most high schools have a better coordinated passing attack than the Colts have been running. If Luck is so fond of up-tempo aggressive play calling, why didn’t he speak up? He’s had more power than anyone in the organization. A lot of coaches talk about being aggressive, but then end up coaching scared. Go get em Frank. I’m hoping your word is golden.

  7. Man, some of these comments are just plain mean. Reich sounds like an awesome hire, the Colts might have got lucky by striking out on Josh Mc.
    Here’s hoping the Colts have an amazing season and Josh Mc eats his heart out.

  8. Nick Foles for a first and a LB.

    Luck won’t play til the 6th game or later. Hasn’t started throwing, who knows where his rehab is at if it’s even started outside of exercises.

    Heard a report there is no timetable for him to start throwing. That doesn’t sound good.

    Best wishes for Luck. Seems like a good dude.

  9. Luck and the Colts haven’t been the same since that AFC championship game in which the Colts had 3 of 4 footballs that were underinflated. For those of you that don’t remember that’s the same game that the Patriots QB got suspended for.

    Sounds like they’re well on their way for a pre-season participation banner.
    Right now they are still working on the anticipation banner, for a participation banner.

    With his rehab falling behind so that he can’t show anything he is trying to help his team by at least saying something. He is decent like that.

  12. Hopefully the plan includes an offensive line that is a bit more familiar with the concept of pass protection.
