Despite the change in offensive coordinators, Luck feels confident in new system.
Andrew Luck experienced a record-breaking rookie season with the Indianapolis Colts, as he led the team from a 2-14 2012 season to a 11-5 Wild Card appearance in just one year.
A lot was down to the skill of his offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who created a system in which Luck’s accuracy was magnified by quick intermediate throws that were high percentage.
However Arians has left the team to take the head coaching role at Arizona, with Luck’s old coordinator from college Pep Hamilton taking over the role.
The familiar face has certainly helped the transition into a new offence, one very similar to that he ran at college.
“I am 100 percent more comfortable,” Luck told indystar.com
“On this day last year, I was probably sitting in class. It is nice to be able to have the full offseason with the team. We have changed coordinators, but I have had a great relationship with Pep Hamilton from before.
“To be around him and talk his style of offense has been great. It is just nice to be around the guys.”
Luck has kept all of his receiving weapons from last year, and has been helped out by the teams front office by shoring up a lacklustre offensive line, which allowed more than 50 sacks last season.
If Luck can find his rhythm in the new system early, then they can be a legitimate challenger to the Houston Texans for the AFC South division title, and another appearance in the playoffs seem certain.
