Luck evolves into more complete QB in Year 2


Inside team headquarters, it’s no surprise. During the offseason, Hamilton and quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen broke down every snap Luck took as a rookie, looking at the good, the bad and the ugly.

All that offseason work has helped Luck evolve on the field.“I think he’s gotten to the point to where he better understands and he can trust that his check-down is going to be at a certain spot or after two hitches it’s time to pull the ball down and try and run and get what you can and get down and or get out of bounds,” said Hamilton, who coached Luck at Stanford before joining Indy.

Teammates are impressed with what they’ve seen, too.“He knows how to approach the game and how to manage the game and how to win games. He’s the guy, his shoulders have definitely gotten a lot more broader and being able to support the team,” Pro Bowl linebacker Robert Mathis said. “He’s been very clutch for us this year.”The Colts are going to need more of the same from Luck to advance in the postseason. At least this time he has a much better idea of how to handle all the things that come with playoff football.“The sort of ‘one-and-done, win-or-go-home,’ I think that’s special,” Luck said. “It’s what makes the NFL playoffs, any playoffs, awesome.”
