If Andrew Luck's receivers can get this kind of separation, he'll have a long, prosperous career in Indianapolis. Colts players and fans are having no trouble moving on from the Peyton Manning era. Reviews are flying in that rookie quarterback Andrew Luck is a huge success. I don't have a problem with optimism, but Colts fans and players do need to realize their quarterback is very young, and he won't always look like the future Hall of Famer he's replacing, if ever. Patience is the key here. He'll be great, but he'll also need some time to get their. I think his coaches and teammates understand that. Peyton Manning may be sharp with his throws, but his arm strength still isn't back to 100%. Then again, do we really expect it to ever get back to 100%?

Peyton Manning’s lost some deep ball velocity

Notes on the Minicamp Open Practice

Sorry for the lack of art to this post, but here are my hastily assembled notes on the minicamp practice held at Lucas Oil Stadium yesterday.

They aren't really bad seats and...

Luck getting to know his receivers

When Peyton Manning entered the league he had Marvin Harrison on which to rely and not much else. In many ways, Andrew Luck's first year will be much more target-rich. He's taking notice early by getting on the same page as Austin Collie and Reggie Wayne: Luck said he’ll rely on veteran teammates such as Collie and Wayne, and 13 of his 25 completions in the afternoon session...
