More No Huddle for Andrew Luck, Colts and Other Must-Reads from the AFC South
Posted By Nate Dunlevy On October 11, 2012 @ 6:29 am In Colts News | No Comments
The training wheels are coming off.
Today’s article of the day comes from Phil Richards of The Indianapolis Star  who calls Indianapolis Colts  interim head coach Bruce Arians‘ announcement that the Colts would start running more no-huddle offense a perfect fit for Andrew Luck .
Luck has been absolutely dominant in two-minute drives this year , but the Colts have hesitated to unleash the hurry-up offense full time, in part because there were so many other young players on the offense.
After being forced to go no-huddle more than they wanted against the Packers , the Colts saw the benefit of allowing Luck to do the things he does best.
For a rookie quarterback playing in his fifth game on the road in New York to be handed the keys to a no-huddle attack is virtually unheard of.
There’s no question, however, that the Colts have been dramatically better when playing no-huddle. Part of the reason is that it allows them to generate matchup advantages. Indy lacks offensive talent, so any edge in the passing game is a must.
Watching Luck adapt to the NFL  has been a treat, and seeing what could become the next great no-huddle quarterback take the next step in his development will be must-see television for NFL fans.
