It’s probably stupid of me to put such a young guy so high on this list, but what the hell.

What I love about Luck’s game, is it is so similar to Brady’s, aside from all the turnovers. Like Brady, Luck wasn’t given much talent to work with last year, and yet he still managed to lead his team into the playoffs, and ultimately get to the divisional round, before getting smacked by the Pats. Taking a bunch of guys that really aren’t that talented, and getting the absolute most out of them is how you determine who is the best in the game.

Last year the Colts’ defense was ranked 20th in the NFL, as was their running game. But Luck put the team on his back, made clutch throw after clutch throw, and turned in a pretty good season. He must cut down on the turnovers to continue his advance up this list, but he is definitely on his way.
