All things considered, not bad rookie.
All things considered, this wasn't nearly as bad as it looks on paper. Luck will use today as a learning tool. He will continue to gauge the dos and don'ts of the NFL, forming a mental image of the possibilities on any given play.
Once he understands the limitations, he can start to erase them.
Luck was handed the keys to an absolute beater in Indianapolis. He needs some time to work with it before taking it to the race track.
In the mean time, he made some visible mistakes. He saw a lot of new looks and hopefully learned a great deal about pro defenses, as well as a bit about his own team. He isn't throwing it to Megatron out there.
There's no reason for fans to panic. If nothing else, Luck showed he has heart. He won't pack it in after the Colts get behind early.
It was a decent—if unremarkable—beginning to what promises to be a well-documented career.
