INDIANAPOLIS – Speaking ahead of Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, prospective new quarterback Andrew Luck insisted he is really enjoying the challenge of following in the footsteps of Peyton Manning and to one day outgrow The Indianapolis Colts.
Saying that he hopes to “fully develop his game” under coach Chuck Pagano so that he can make a big-money move away to “someone like the New York Giants” later on down the road, Luck invited NFL scouts to “come and see me play.”
“Everyone on the Colts’ roster has really helped me settle in well,” said Luck, glancing over the website of the San Francisco 49ers.
“This kind of team support can only help me raise my game and eventually secure a multi-million dollar contract with a really kick-ass team in a few years.”
Asked what he thought about the comparisons made between himself and Colts legend and current Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, Luck said there were more similarities between the two than just the position they play, adding: “Peyton achieved what I hope to achieve with the Colts: interest from another team.”
As he sets his sights on a second straight victory today, Luck says he will have one eye on the game 4 showdown with the Green Bay Packers, hoping that the Wisconsin team’s management and coaching staff “really get to see what I can do.”
