Coach Chuck Pagano seemed to hint that the Colts will lean toward an aggressive passing offense in hopes it will kick start their running game.
"I think having the capability to do the other thing is going to open things up in the run game for us," said Pagano. Trent Richardson has two eight-yard gains in the preseason, and 16 yards on his other 12 carries. Both eight-yarders came on shotgun runs -- a passing formation. Richardson has been unsuccessful without room to operate, and pass-oriented sets might give him more space. From a personnel standpoint, Indy's roster strength is its QB and pass-catching corps.

Andrew Luck completed 12-of-18 passes for 89 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' second preseason game Saturday night.

The Colts' first-team offense was generally on point, even with T.Y. Hilton and Reggie Wayne resting. Luck hit Hakeem Nicks five times for 53 yards, and Griff Whalen for a five-yard score. With a deep pass-catching corps and dual-threat ability, Luck is a good bet to repeat as a top-eight fantasy QB1 this year.

ESPN's Colts reporter says Andrew Luck will have "plenty of opportunities to throw the ball" this season.

The insinuation is that stubborn OC Pep Hamilton will relent on his forced power-running obsession and take the shackles off Luck. Beat man Mike Wells says the Colts now simply want to score points whichever way necessary. It should be a no-brainer philosophy change with the interior offensive line in shambles, question marks at running back, improved weaponry in the pass game and Luck ready to emerge as a generational talent.

In poll of 26 general managers, personnel men and coaches, Andrew Luck landed in "Tier 1" of quarterbacks.

The only other Tier 1 quarterbacks were Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees. Although Luck has been in the NFL for just two years and is yet to go off statistically, it's clear to anyone with two eyes that he's a "once in a generation" kind of talent. Luck is just a middling QB1 in re-draft formats due to the presence of stubborn run-first OC Pep Hamilton, but he's arguably the No. 1 quarterback in Dynasty leagues.

Colts OC Pep Hamilton said he's taken a "score-first" mindset heading into his second season on the job.

Hamilton unsuccessfully preached and practiced a run-first, physical style of offense as a rookie NFL coordinator. He's come to realize he can't jam a square peg into a round hole. Hamilton has one of the game's better quarterbacks in Andrew Luck and a loaded arsenal of pass catchers. "We’re going to do whatever we need to do to score one more point than our opponent," Hamilton said. Luck won't drop back 700 times, but he could flirt with 600 attempts and remains in the bottom half of the QB1 mix, with upside for more. The Colts have personnel to play spread offense if they can't kick start Trent Richardson.

Vick Ballard said OC Pep Hamilton's 2013 philosophy was "we're going to run the ball on first, second and third down."

Ballard didn't get a chance to participate in the run-heavy gameplans due to a September ACL tear, but he had to watch with the rest of us as Hamilton took the ball out of Andrew Luck's hands. The Colts repeatedly fell behind while sticking with an inept running game, only to watch Luck bring them back from huge deficits once asked to carry the team. He finished the season 11th in pass attempts (570) and 13th in yards (3,822), criminal numbers for one of the game's best quarterbacks. We can only pray Hamilton will lean toward the pass more in 2014 once he assesses where his top talent lies.

Andrew Luck completed 20-of-41 passes for 331 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions in Indianapolis' 43-22, Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

The four picks look bad, but as usual, Luck was hurt by drops and the Colts' nonexistent running game. Two of Luck's INTs were squarely on his shoulders, but one was essentially a Stanley Havili drop. LaVon Brazill ran the wrong route on the other. Luck's seven postseason picks were just two fewer than he threw during the regular season. Luck has some bad Kurt Warner to him — he can be too willing to take deep shots into double coverage — but took an expected step forward this season. He cut down on his turnovers despite having to put the Colts offense on his back following the loss of Reggie Wayne, and improved his completion percentage by over six points. Luck's yardage fell back from his rookie total, but his passing scores held steady at 23. He was held back by the Colts' offensive design, which was inexplicably run heavy despite not having the horses at running back. He severely lacked for weapons behind T.Y. Hilton. Either way, Luck's upside remains through the roof.
Jan 11 - 11:32 PM

Andrew Luck completed 29-of-45 passes for 443 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions as the Colts stunned the Chiefs 45-44 in Saturday's Wild Card game.

Luck also added seven rushes for 45 yards and a fluky, diving touchdown after Donald Brown put the ball on the ground. The Colts fell behind 38-10 76 seconds into the second half. Their 28-point comeback was the second biggest in playoff history. Luck was horrible for the game's first 31 minutes, tossing wobbly passes in the face of pressure, two of which were picked off. Despite a third pick later in the third quarter, however, Luck was lights out as the Colts methodically wore down a Chiefs team that was battered by injury. Luck worked his connection with T.Y. Hilton relentlessly, finding his No. 1 receiver 13 times for 224 yards and two touchdowns. The score forced the Colts to abandon their horrific running game, and they were rewarded with perhaps the best half of Luck's career. Indy will get either the Broncos or Patriots in next week's Divisional game.
Jan 4 - 8:09 PM

The Colts rested Andrew Luck in the second half of Week 17 in favor of Matt Hasselbeck after Luck completed 26-of-37 passes for 282 yards and a touchdown in Indy's floor-wiping of Jacksonville.

The Colts had a 27-3 lead at the time of Hasselbeck's insertion. Luck puts a bow on his second NFL regular season with 3,822 passing yards and a 23:9 TD-to-INT ratio, cutting his turnovers dramatically from his rookie year and improving both his completion rate and quarterback rating. Armed with a more explosive pass-catching corps than he began the season, Luck enters the playoffs playing some of his best football of the year. The Colts wound up winning the AFC South in a landslide, finishing with an 11-5 record for the second straight season.

Andrew Luck completed 26-of-37 passes for 241 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 16, 23-7 win over the Chiefs.

After Jamaal Charles opened the game with a 31-yard touchdown run, the Colts dominated all afternoon. Luck was under some pressure but took just one sack. He peppered Griff Whalen over the middle with a team-leading eight targets, allowing the shifty receiver to work some magic post-catch. Luck's touchdown pass was a 33-yard dump-off over the middle that Donald Brown took all the way to the house. Luck could have easily had another touchdown pass had LaVon Brazill been able to haul in a would-be 47-yard score after beating Brandon Flowers. Luck and the 10-5 Colts will wrap up their season next week at home against Jacksonville.

Andrew Luck completed 19-of-32 passes for 180 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Indianapolis' 25-3, Week 15 beatdown of the Texans.

With the Colts in control from the opening possession, Luck attempted only one fourth-quarter pass in a game where Houston didn't compete. Luck's pick was a badly under-thrown deep ball to Da'Rick Rogers near the goal line, but it made little difference in a game where Indy was never threatened. It certainly had something to do with Houston's non-competitive nature, but Indy looked far more competent on offense this afternoon, actually appearing as if it had a game-plan. Luck will remain a borderline QB1 in Week 16 against the Chiefs.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 04:24:00 PM

Andrew Luck completed 29-of-46 passes for 326 yards and four touchdowns in Week 14 against the Bengals.

Luck also led the Colts in rushing with 32 yards on two attempts. The Colts were playing from behind all day long, leading to a ton of work for the passing game. The coaching staff finally turned away from Darrius Heyward-Bey, giving more reps to youngsters Da'Rick Rogers and LaVon Brazill. Luck hooked up with each for a pair of touchdowns. The Indianapolis offensive line didn't surrender one sack for the first time all season. Luck will be a locked-in QB1 next week against a Texans team that is just going through the motions.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 05:42:00 PM

Andrew Luck completed 17-of-32 throws for 200 yards and an interception in the Colts' Week 13 win over the Titans.

He added five scrambles for 42 yards, including a 24-yard keeper around right tackle on the Colts' most momentous drive of the game, in the fourth quarter. Luck absorbed five sacks, including four in the second quarter alone. The Colts' pass protection is atrocious, and lately Luck has been exacerbating the problems by holding onto the ball too long, as if he's become shell shocked. He'll only be a borderline QB1 in Week 14 at Cincinnati.

NFL Network's Mike Silver reports Colts OC Pep Hamilton is "under pressure" within the organization to "step up his game" after so many slow offensive starts over the past several weeks.

Two sources tell Silver that Hamilton "might be having a tough time adjusting" to the NFL as a rookie coordinator coming from Stanford. The transition was expected to be smooth based on Hamilton's familiarity with Andrew Luck and Coby Fleener, but has been the opposite. The Colts have prioritized scheme over personnel under Hamilton, taking a big step back from the all-too-brief Bruce Arians era. There is reportedly a belief at Colts headquarters that Hamilton has "struggled to free up receivers" like T.Y. Hilton, and his system has lacked imagination and aggressiveness. If the Colts keep playing as they've been playing, Pep the Playcaller could be one-and-done in Indy.

Andrew Luck completed 20-of-39 passes for 163 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Colts' 40-11, Week 12 blowout loss in Arizona.

Luck's offensive line cannot hold blocks long enough for anything to develop down field, even though they surrendered just one sack. The second-year stud quarterback posted a pitiful 4.2 YPA on Sunday. He also led the regulars in rushing with 31 yards on two carries. Trent Richardson and Donald Brown combined for 16 yards on nine totes. Luck's No. 1 receiver, T.Y. Hilton, was blanketed by Patrick Peterson all afternoon and hurt his shoulder in the process, though he missed just a couple plays. On his touchdown pass, Luck hooked up with Coby Fleener from 17 yards away in garbage time. His interception was a brutal pick-six to Karlos Dansby in the second quarter. Luck threw off his back foot as he was falling away on the play. The 7-4 Colts host the Titans next week. Luck tossed for 232 yards against Tennessee in Week 11.
