Andrew Luck: I know I can make all the throws

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck popped up on the team’s injury report Wednesday, but the groin issue cited on the report didn’t keep Luck from getting in a full practice session.

When speaking to reporters, Luck said there aren’t any physical issues causing him trouble right now. That includes his right shoulder, which kept him out all of last season and has drawn some attention as the team’s offense has featured a lot of shorter passing through the first three weeks of the season.

Head coach Frank Reich has said he has no concerns about Luck while explaining that approach and Luck was adamant Wednesday that he’s able to do anything — with one notable exception — required of the position.

“I know I’m at a level where I can make all the throws, and I feel confident I’m going out there with my full arsenal. I don’t think there’s anything physically holding me back,” Luck said, via the Indianapolis Star. “The [deep passing game] can get better. It can definitely get better. We could probably look back and say if we had a couple more chunks in the first few games, maybe that would swing the tide in a way. But that’s probably the truth of looking back at any game. Hindsight is 20-20. So we’ll work on it. I’ll work on it. Guys up front, too. Wide outs will make sure when those opportunities do present themselves, that we’re making the plays.”

There have been downfield throws that have resulted in penalties that don’t show up on Luck’s stat sheet and other reasons, including missing offensive linemen, that explain why the team’s downfield passing game hasn’t sparked to this point in the season, but the questions are sure to keep getting asked as long as Luck’s game is missing the high points of past seasons.

  1. More talk about the story that never ends. Stop blabbering about everything you can do and win some games instead of face planting with the game on the line.

  2. Luck’s shoulder not listed in any of 2018’s injury reports yet they Colts know it’s still a problem. Color me shocked! No different to something like 25 of 29 injury reports in 2015/16 after Luck injured it in wk3 2015. In April 2017 Luck admitted he’d been struggling & CONSTANTLY habbing that shoulder EVER SINCE the injury, yet Fraudger is yet to investigate all those faked injury reports, let alone ribgate too.

  3. Oh come on! They pulled Luck and put in Jacoby Brissett just to throw the Hail Mary at the end of the Eagles game. He also underthrew all his deep balls, got lucky with PI on one of them. At this point everyone knows he can’t throw deep.

  4. I can make every throw : provided every throw is under 10 yards, done with a Nerf ball and the wind is at his back.

    Andrew Luck, over rated, over hyped and over paid.

    I guess you missed LeRaven Clark doing his best impression of a traffic cone on that play or the numerous drops in the end zone

  6. Except the ones that require you to throw the ball really far. Don’t worry I’m sure defenses won’t figure that out

  7. I don’t even want to tell you “I TOLD YA”.

    I get no pleasure in his declining ability.

    I hope he gets healthy.

  8. Eh, this team is literally a couple of plays away from being 3-0… Tight End play has cost them two games. Doyle’s fumble returned for a TD against Cincy and Ebron’s dropped TD against Philly cost the Colts. However, in the weak AFC South they’re still in contention and it’s because of Andrew Luck.

  9. It is pretty ironic that Terripet is always making comments about TB 12 the GOAT being unable to throw down the field ,yet in reality it’s his own quarterback , Luck, that can’t do it!! pretty funny 😆

  10. I dunno, man. Honestly I don’t know if he can or not. I’m ready to cut bait on luck. If Jacob Bridgett can, and luck can’t.
    , then we need to get rid of Andrew.

  11. it is not whether or not Andrew can make the throws, the problem is whether or not his receivers can make the catches

    Who’s this Bridgett guy you speak of? He can’t be any good

  13. The mind says yes, but the body says no. That’s what happened to me when I played basketball last weekend with a bunch of 20 year olds.

    Luck was out all last season due to a shoulder injury.
    What’s Tammy’s* excuse?
