It’s fourth down. Your team is down by five. There’s four seconds on the clock. And it’s 14 yards to the end zone. Who do you want as your quarterback? Tom Brady? Peyton Manning? Andrew Luck? How many Colts fans would have picked our rookie quarterback at the beginning of the season? And now…after Sunday? Andrew Luck is quickly becoming that quarterback. That quarterback who doesn’t get rattled. That quarterback who can make the big play. That quarterback who can manage the clock and close out a game in the final seconds. And that quarterback who will find a way to win. For a while on Sunday, it looked like the Colts were out of luck. The rookie quarterback had some rookie moments. He was under pressure, off his mark, and had three interceptions. But somehow, some way…Luck kept coming back. And when it came down to the last play, the last second, Luck made his own luck. A comeback win on the road. And long after some fans had given up. But Andrew Luck is no quitter. And his fans shouldn’t be either. These days Andrew Luck is piling up records faster than Peyton Manning is making pizzas. With the 35-33 win over the Detroit Lions, the Colts go to 8-4. And Luck becomes the first quarterback taken number one overall to win eight games in a season (surpassing Sam Bradford in 2010). He also holds the record for passing yards by a rookie and passing yards by a rookie in a game. And he still has four games to go! When you have Luck…anything is possible. As I told someone last week, sometimes you just have to hang in there and believe. In football. And in life. So…KEEP CALM AND BELIEVE IN LUCK.
