He runs meetings like a coach. Basically, I'm playing with a coordinator on the field. He's a football God. He sees everything. He sees the big picture of everything. ...
... He lets me know when [there's] something I don't see. He's just different. How he's in the huddle, off the field, in the meetings, he runs it. He runs the show, even in the off-season, he ran it. One day he had running backs, the next day he has receivers. He's just different. He's a football God.
This isn't just anyone praising Luck. Gore is entering his 11th season in the league and reached the Super Bowl as a member of the San Francisco 49ers. He's played with hundreds of teammates and seen how they handle countless situations, and Luck has done enough before Gore's first regular-season game in Indianapolis to be labeled a football god.
It is not difficult to see why Gore thinks so highly of the former Stanford Cardinal. Luck, 25, is a three-time Pro Bowler and led the league with 40 touchdown passes in 2014. He also finished third in the league with 4,761 passing yards and is capable of making plays with his legs when the pocket breaks down.
The Colts have Super Bowl aspirations with the MVP candidate under center, especially since he will have wide receivers Andre Johnson, T.Y. Hilton and Phillip Dorsett at his disposal. Throw in tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener, as well as Gore at running back, and it is difficult to envision many defenses consistently stopping Indianapolis.
Mike Wells of ESPN.com pointed out why Luck is the perfect quarterback to play with so many weapons:
Luck's mind frame is he'll throw to any player no matter the name on the back of their jersey. He won't force a ball to Hilton if he's doubled teamed. Luck will gladly throw underneath to tight end Jack Doyle if he's open. Luck spends time throwing to all his receivers—not just first and second team players—during practice, which in turn carries over to the games.
It will take a benevolent god to keep that many playmakers happy this season.
