All of the hype surrounding Andrew Luck's future as a
quarterback has taken a bit of a backseat to the spectacle that Robert Griffin
III has put on in Washington this season. But on Sunday, Luck reestablished his
position as the best young quarterback in the NFL.
Luck threw for a rookie record 433 yards -- breaking Cam
Newton's previous high of 425 -- and a pair of touchdowns in the Colts' 23-20 win

rookie Ryan Tannehill. The back and forth battle was exciting, but Luck yet
again justified the enormous hype surrounding him.

athleticism, Luck remains focused on the wins and losses.
Through his first half season in the NFL, Luck has as many
wins as any other first or second-year quarterback -- Christian Ponder also has
five with th...
