Found October 18, 2012 on The Colts Authority:
No quarterback has come into the NFL with greater expectations than Andrew Luck. Colts Authority writer Todd Smith is so sure of his successful NFL future that he has set in motion a plan to follow every single snap of the Colts rookie signal caller, providing the most in-depth statistical breakdown of a quarterback's career ever put together. It is the attention he is receiving from NFL talking heads, personnel around the league, and Colts fans that will undoubtedly magnify every single one of his big plays, successes, mistakes, and failures. Toss in that Heisman winner, and world class athlete, Robert Griffin III came into the league at the same time -- and that his predecessor was possibly the greatest quarterback the game has ever seen -- and it should be clear that making his way through rookie growing pains will warrant a lot of discussion and feedback.

Following a Legend: Andrew Luck Week 6 at New York Jets

So what’s the cause?  Why have the vicissitudes of this particular season proven so fantastically...
