Playing like a veteran: Colts quarterback Luck showing rare poise for rookie QB

Andrew Luck is, without question, a wiser quarterback today than he was seven weeks ago.

But the Indi­ana­­polis Colts rookie doesn’t know it all.

He’s the first to say so.

“I think I’ve learned a little bit more about the playbook, maybe a little bit more about opposing defenses; still a long way to go,” said Luck, whose NFL career is six games old heading into Sunday’s AFC South showdown at Tennessee. “I think I’m learning when to throw the ball away, when to take a sack, when not to force a ball.

“These are things that I’m nowhere near perfect on and will continue to learn, and hopefully I’ll get better.”

Not that the Luck has been bad, especially by rookie standards on a rebuilding team. His stats don’t dazzle, but the only figure that matters is his record as the starter: 3-3.
