Sports Network: Luck and Weeden Renew Their Rivalry

The Sports Network takes a look at Andrew Luck and Brandon Weeden, who got to know each other the week leading up to their teams' clash in the Fiesta Bowl.  They also give a brief recap of their only head to head meeting to date:

The 23-year-old Luck, a two-time Heisman Trophy finalist, threw for 347 yards and a pair of scores with one interception in that game, but came out on the losing end of a 41-38 overtime decision to Weeden, who posted 399 passing yards while finding college teammate and current Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon for three touchdowns.

Also, if you don't have time to read their whole article, I noticed one thing that kind of surprised me:

Weeden has not had the same success as his friend Luck, though he does lead all NFL rookies with 1,519 passing yards on the season. That is 31 more than Luck and the two have each hurled seven touchdown passes on the year.

No one is saying Weeden is the better quarterback (I think that's safe to say), but he is definitely doing better than some may have realized.  If you're interested in finding out how all the rookies are doing, Check out my links to some of Scot Kacsmar's work as well: NFL Rookies Off to Unprecedented Start



Have a fantastic day, Colts Fans.
