(AP Photo/Michael Conroy) The Colts version of the Colts-Packers recap for The Associated Press is also written by Michael Marot, and he delivers again, including candid quotes from Andrew Luck, and Coach Ariens' nickname: "I'm sure we were all lying to everybody the whole week, trying to downplay it," Luck said after throwing for a career-high 362 yards. "I think we all went out there wanting to do it for Chuck more than anything else. To see all the emotions on Mr. Irsay's face, BA's, everyone in there, I think it's one of the greatest athletic moments I've ever been a part of." It's a day nobody in Indy or around the league will soon forget. Interim coach Bruce Arians, nicknamed BA, acknowledged he was fighting back ...

Hummer: Luck, More than Lucky

Chris Hummer put out a pretty good article on Andrew Luck after yesterday's game, around how little Luck looked like (say that five times fast) a rookie against Green Bay. He finished with 362 yards and two touchdowns but his no-huddle offense, cool demeanour, and quick feet won the Colts the game.

Luck, the first pick in April's NFL draft and a perennial superstar for a few years now, undertook...

Luck leads Colts to statement win

It was a wild finish to an emotionally...

The Real Impact of Beating the Packers for a Young Colts Team

Luck rising up the fantasy boards

Though the calendar states Columbus Day as a time to venerate the maiden voyage to the Americas, the holiday receives little admiration. Banks are closed, but pretty sure the financial district gets respite for such "celebrations" as Oktoberfest and National Pancake Day. The Canadians think so little of the festivities that they coincided their Thanksgiving with the commemoration...
