"He's not a rookie quarterback, really," safety Tom Zbikowski said. "He's smart. He's wise beyond his years."
So far, things have gone as well as could be expected.
Coaches and teammates have praised his knowledge of the offense and his ability to take command in the huddle. Former Colts coach Tony Dungy was impressed with Luck's decisiveness. Team owner Jim Irsay acknowledged that despite some anticipated rough patches this season, Luck will make the transition from college star to franchise quarterback as smoothly as any quarterback since Peyton Manning in 1998.
