Andrew Luck Beats Up On Sam Bradford, The St. Louis Rams

It didn't take long for Andrew Luck to force the St. Louis Rams' inferiority complex about their own No. 1 quarterback, Sam Bradford, in Sunday's preseason opener: With more than a little help from Donald Brown, Andrew Luck and the Colts turned a pass just beyond the line of scrimmage into a 63-yard touchdown pass. Luck threw two touchdown passes overall, and put up 188 yards, and even if you wipe out that near-shovel-pass as beginner's luck he finished 9-for-15 with 125 yards, a Y/A of 8.3.

He definitely topped Sam Bradford, who finished 7-for-9 with 57 yards and, in his defense, once more face constant pressure behind an offensive line that continues to define incompetence.

For the Colts, at least, it was a welcome sign that the rookie they dumped Peyton Manning for might be at least half as good as advertised. Of course, it might have also been a bit of a warning, with Luck's romp coming at the expense of another No. 1 overall franchise savior. Bradford and company, after all, have had great preseasons too.
