Luck says he’ll sit

Andrew Luck told the media he’d be happy to sit behind Peyton Manning, a man he admires greatly:

“Yeah, absolutely,” Luck told reporters at the Scouting Combine regarding the possibility of serving as Peyton’s understudy.  “If I had the opportunity to learn from a guy like that, of course you’re going to take advantage of it.  Absolutely.”

Bob Kravitz says despite being willing to serve as Peyton Manning’s understudy, he shouldn’t be asked to do so:

He’s ready.

And he’s ready now.

But he wants to start because he’s ready to start, and there’s no good reason to impede his long-term progress because neither Colts owner Jim Irsay nor Manning seems capable of saying “goodbye” just yet.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
