After a season where the Colts played players like Kerry Collins and, somehow, Curtis Painter, the city of Indianapolis was begging for a quarterback that could at least not throw the ball at a receiver's feet.
The Colts drafted Andrew Luck with the number one pick in the draft with the hopes that he could replace one of the greatest quarterbacks ever in Peyton Manning.
While this sounded like an insane amount of pressure, Luck has risen to the occasion, and is playing better than most rookies do in their first season.
Luck has already tied a record for most wins in a season by a quarterback selected first overall with seven wins this year. This means Luck is on pace to be the first ever quarterback selected to first to not only have a winning season, but make the playoffs.
When Manning was a rookie, his team only won three games. Luck is already at seven.
Luck is proving to be a leader for this team, leading several game winning drives. These drives are beginning to remind Colts fans of Manning's ability to drive down the field in two minute drills.
With the success of the Colts, people are going to constantly compare Luck to Manning. At this point in the season, Luck has earned those comparisons.
