There's good news, and there's bad news for Colts fans. The good news is that Andrew Luck looked nothing short of impressive in his first start for his new team. The bad news is he looked great against the St. Louis Rams.
Luck's numbers were impressive. He started the game by tossing a 63 yard touchdown pass, and he finished 10 of 16 for 188 yards and 2 touchdowns. If nothing else, the performance shows that Luck can move the ball down the field in an NFL setting.
As I alluded to earlier, there's reason to take Luck's success with a grain of salt. The Rams are one of the worst teams in the NFL, and it's going to take more than a single offseason for head coach Jeff Fisher to turn the franchise's fortunes around.
It's also a bit of a misnomer to say that luck threw a 63 yard touchdown pass on the Colts' first offensive play. Yes, Luck gets credit for all 63 of those yards, but 61 yards came after the catch. The pass was essentially a dump-off that went the distance.
