What to expect from Andrew Luck in his 2nd season

Andrew Luck Will Likely Be Best of Sophomore QBs in 2013



Colts position review: QB Unlike Griffin and Wilson who had the benefit of playing in the same backfield as the NFL's second and third-leading rushers, Luck received very little help from the running game last season. Pressure was an even bigger issue as Luck was sacked the fourth-most times in the league and faced more pressure than any quarterback since 2010, according to Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports. Luck should receive more help next season as the Colts addressed areas of need in free agency. Gosder Cherilus and Donald Thomas should help bolster the offensive line while Ahmad Bradshaw could be a significant upgrade at running back. Improved protection should immediately lead to better results. Farrar wen't into detail on Luck's lack of success when pressured and the numbers are significant: As with just about every quarterback, Luck saw his efficiency go down fairly seriously in these instances -- his DVOA (FO's opponent-adjusted per-play efficiency metric) was 28.3% without pressure, and minus -51.9% with pressure.
