He’s just not satisfied with the results, which is one reason that Luck has decided not to seek out endorsement deals this year. He’d rather concentrate on learning the game and becoming the cornerstone of the Colts‘ rebuilding project.
The plan this week is simple: Avoid mistakes in what will likely be his most extensive action of the preseason. Pagano plans to follow the traditional approach and play his starters into the third quarter.
“It’s continuing to understand the offense,” Luck said. “I can tell when I’m out there, when I’m not sure about the read, that’s when bad things happen.”
Through two games, Luck is 26 of 41 with a league-high 363 yards, two TDs and the two picks. His quarterback rating of 87.8 is No. 6 in the league, fourth among all rookie quarterbacks and No. 1 among the four selected in the first round of April’s draft.
The Colts can’t complain.
“That’s the funny thing, you’d expect a young guy to be wide-eyed a little bit,” Vinatieri said. “But he doesn’t have that look to him.”
So the man with the photographic memory knows exactly what he must do to continue his progression.
“Hopefully, I play a little better this week, I’m expecting to be better,” he said. “I don’t want to take any steps back.”
