“Yeah, absolutely,” Luck told reporters at the Scouting Combine regarding the possibility of serving as Peyton’s understudy. “If I had the opportunity to learn from a guy like that, of course you’re going to take advantage of it. Absolutely.”
And he's ready now.
But he wants to start because he's ready to start, and there's no good reason to impede his long-term progress because neither Colts owner Jim Irsay nor Manning seems capable of saying "goodbye" just yet.
It is utterly amazing how people decide something (Manning needs to go!) and then nothing ever changes that stance. If he tests as healthy and renegotiates his contract, Kravitz will still proclaim "he's gotta go". Reminds me what Colbert said of George Bush. "Bush decides something on Monday, and no matter what happens Tuesday, he sticks to what he said on Monday". Not to politicize it - the point is, it's a dumb thing to say.
@buymymonkey Nate wrote an article a while back - and he mentioned the fact that Kravitz is always trying to get rid of our Indy great sports figures before there time ...Kravitz is likely now trying to get rid of Larry Bird, right when the Pacers look like they've finally recovered from the Brawl. This is addition to his Punt the Peyton compaign. Kravitz is usually wrong, and obnoxious in being wrong.
I hope Peyton is fine, and he plays with the Colts this year.
