Everybody compares Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning to the Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre situation.
But for every quarterback like Aaron Rodgers who sits for a few seasons then takes over, there's a Matt Ryan, Andy Dalton, Cam Newton, Joe Flacco, Sam Bradford, etc. The list goes on and on.
The reality is, more and more often in today's era, hyped-up rookie quarterbacks are starting in their rookie season.
And when you're the most hyped quarterback prospect in a decade, it's easy to get a little squirmy sitting on the bench.
I'm not saying Andrew Luck has an ego; what I am saying is has anyone thought that just maybe Andrew Luck doesn't want to sit?
After watching all these rookie quarterbacks have success, Andrew Luck knows he is more than capable of following in those quarterbacks' footsteps.
Luck may be expected to be a legend, and in order to meet those expectations, Luck will be just itching for an opportunity to make an impact now, not hold a clipboard for three years.
An unhappy Luck who wants to be traded to a team that WILL start him isn't good for the Colts organization.
Unless the Colts trade Peyton Manning—and let's face it, that's unlikely to happen—Manning will be the starter next year, even if they do draft Luck.
