Ever since the Indianapolis Colts drafted Andrew Luck we’ve heard countless comparison to Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. It’s not really surprise a number one pick replacing the greatest player in franchise history. Yesterday though Reggie Wayne chimed in and also compared Luck to Manning. “The way [Luck] approaches practice, I hate to do this, but it’s somewhat like a Peyton Manning,” Wayne said regarding the thing about Luck that impresses the veteran receiver the most. “Even though I hate to compare the two, he takes practice just like it’s a game. He knows as well as I do that practice is probably going to be harder than the games because you’re going to see it so many different ways. In game time, you may only see it once or twice. “He gets us in and out of the huddle, he tells us to pick it up, he tells the offensive line, ‘Hey, we need to do better here.’ He tells the receivers, ‘I need you to come out a little higher’ or whatever the case may be. So he’s on it. Whenever your quarterback is doing that you know you’re in the right direction. So I’m glad to see him doing that.” (ProFootballTalk) In my opinion that’s huge that Reggie Wayne is comparing Luck to Peyton in some ways. Wayne and Manning had a great working relationship in Indianapolis so if Wayne sees the same characteristics in Andrew that’s a good thing, right? The important thing in Wayne’s interview with ProFootballTalk he said that he doesn’t want Luck to try and be Peyton or anyone else. He wants Luck to be his own person because that’s the only way he’ll be able to as successful as he potentially could be. “What I would much rather Andrew do is build his own legacy, whatever that is,” Wayne said. “Andrew, he can’t be a Peyton Manning. He can’t be a Tom Brady. He can’t be an Aaron Rodgers. Only thing Andrew can do is be Andrew so whatever you’re motto is that’s what you need to work on. . . . I like what I see. Well, actually, I love what I see in him. He’s going to be very good. He really is, and as long as we can keep him clean up front and the skill guys continue to make plays for him, he going to be the face of the NFL soon.”(ProFootballTalk) The post More Peyton Manning comparisons for Andrew Luck appeared first on My Sports Rumors.
