The Indianapolis Colts will have one of the most dynamic offenses in the NFL next season, especially if running back Trent Richardson can explode in his third year in the league and his first full season with the Colts. With only the offensive line as a weakness, Andrew Luck looks poised to take his stardom to a whole new level with T.Y. Hilton, Reggie Wayne, Hakeem Nicks, Donte Moncrief, breakout TE Dwayne Allen, and Coby Fleener around him. Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton will finally stop running the ball too much and will allow Luck and his elite group of weapons to pour it down on defenses through the air.
Luck is obviously an incredibly intelligent player, and it’s also refreshing to hear that the Colts will allow him to do more at the line of scrimmage. According to ESPN’s Jim Trotter, the Colts are asking Luck to have more control at the line of scrimmage, and Trotter adds that Luck will go to the LOS with six plays to choose from as opposed to just two. This gives him more freedom to read defenses and use his high football IQ more to go with his elite physical tools.
All the ingredients are there for Luck to emerge as a truly elite quarterback in his third season in the league after quickly establishing himself as a top ten QB. He cut his interceptions down by half in his second year, and his yards per attempt average will be the next number to skyrocket in improvement next season.
