It's impossible to write much about the Colts without writing about rookie quarterback Andrew Luck. He's the face and future of the franchise; their hopes built entirely around his development.
Last week he had the kind of game we should expect from a rookie expected to carry the load: uneven.
This week, the most important aspect to improve is reducing turnovers. Luck didn't get a fair shake from offensive coordinator Bruce Arians last week when asked to throw the ball on 75 percent of all offensive snaps.
When in those spots, however, he pushed a bit and under-threw a couple of balls. Those turnovers were the difference in a game that shouldn't have been that close.
Arians needs to work on offensive balance and get Luck more three-step drops to build a rhythm. Requiring less protection from the offensive line will inevitably make the game easier for Luck to manage. That confidence and lower-risk approach should reduce turnovers and lead to a better game from the rookie.
