Andrew Luck

I spent a long time debating whether to put Luck or Drew Brees in this number two slot, but Luck’s comeback win against the Texans on Sunday night finally swayed me towards the youngster. Luck’s numbers may not jump out at you like Manning’s do, but the most important statistic in the NFL, is the amount of wins you are able to collect, and Luck does just fine in that department. He has led the Colts to a 6-2 record, which is good for the top spot in the AFC South. Despite completing only 18 of 40 passes against the Texans, but he did complete a nice fourth quarter comeback against one of the best defenses in the league, without his number target, Reggie Wayne. This “low stats, but high wins” type of thing reminds you of a certain other number 12, who is one of the best players the NFL has ever seen, and will go down as perhaps the beset quarterback to play the game. I am not saying that Luck is on Tom Brady’s level, but he certainly is solidifying himself as a top quarterback in the league today.
