Andrew Luck is getting his first real taste of Colts football and the transition from Peyton Manning.
Roughly 10,000 fans showed up for Wednesday's workout at Lucas Oil Stadium, most coming to see exactly what they have in Manning's replacement.
The latest workout left some fans impressed. One calls Luck the ''real deal'' while another says he's ''excited'' to see how Luck does as an NFL rookie.
But it wasn't all about Luck. While some No. 12 jerseys were in the stands, others wore No. 18 jerseys. Some were in the Colts' traditional colors, others were the colors for Manning's new team: the Denver Broncos.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck was finally able to join his teammates on the field this week after missing OTA’s while he finished up his classes at Stanford.
Colts receiver Reggie Wayne indicated that it wasn’t the best thing for Luck to miss OTA’s.
“Not ideal,”said Wayne. “You’d like to have had some time to get out there with him and...
Yesterday, the Colts held a fan-available practice at Lucas Oil Stadium, where about 7,500 fans came to watch Andrew Luck and the 2012 Colts for the first time.
With the abundance of eyes watching the practice, we got a few more things confirmed that may or may not have been assumed by Colts fans previous to Wednesday. Of course, as the headline states, these really are only semi...
It's finally time for Andrew Luck. It's finally time for a new era.
The season really doesn't get underway until July 28, when the players report to training camp at Anderson University. Nevertheless, mini-camp, which starts today, is the first chance we'll get at seeing the entire 2012 roster (for now) together, with Andrew Luck at the helm.
As the team...

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.
The Colts had still-unsold seats marked for potential purchase. While there were a few scattered down low, almost all of them were unsurprisingly located in the upper-bowl near the top in the corner. They aren't really bad seats and...
According to Nate Davis of USA Today, it was clear during the Denver Broncos’ minicamp session on Tuesday, that Peyton Manning’s velocity on his deep balls isn’t what it once was.
Manning has looked very good with his accuracy when he delivers short to intermediate throws. His doctors remain upbeat about his current condition.
“I still have a lot of work...
The Denver Broncos wrapped up their offseason workouts Thursday with another spirited practice marked by potent, precise passes. One thing is abundantly clear after 13 offseason practices, six of which were witnessed by the media: Peyton Manning is back.
The four-time MVP has shown no ill effects of the nerve issue that caused weakness in his throwing arm last year, required four...
The Indianapolis Colts open practice at Lucas Oil Stadium gave fans an opportunity to get their first look at the "new era" Colts. With the Colts entering only their second day of work under new head coach Chuck Pagano and more newcomers on the roster than returning players, expectations here were that there would be plenty of "growing pains" on display for...
Even Peyton Manning makes a mistake from time to time.
We're all closely watching the Broncos to see how Peyton Manning's rehab is coming along, and Pete Prisco likes what he sees from the future Hall of Famer. The fact that Manning is still impressing everyone isn't surprising to me. I've watched him nearly every weekend for over a decade, and he still surprised...
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...
As mini-camps are underway and fans get to see, or hear how their teams look with their new additions there are definitely some eyes and ears in a few places more than others.
New York Jets acquired Tim Tebow from Denver this off-season to add depth to their quarterback spot. With the addition of Tim Tebow, the Jets may have the most talked about and most scrutinized quarterback...
