The Colts were already good on offense last year, and spent the offseason getting better.
But the central piece of that success spent the offseason beating himself up.
“The decision-making process bit me in the butt, which in turn hurt the Colts more than a couple times last year,” Luck said. “Obviously the Patriots games, and Philadelphia, second week of the season, I throw a bad pick in somewhat of a four-minute situation. I gotta learn, Just eat it, take the sack, throw it at his feet, whatever.
“That’s what this off-season’s been about. Don’t give them a chance. We watched every interception ad nauseam and we watched balls that should have been intercepted ad nauseam. We [coaches and backup QB Matt Hasselbeck] talk about it and say, ‘Why?’ Do you have the awareness to know where the team is in the game? Is it worth trying to fit a ball in there or not? Do you go out of bounds or do you not?”
