Tom Brady gushes about Andrew Luck



Tom Brady gushes about Andrew Luck




Andrew Luck is already an NFL superstar, one of the faces of the league, but it has to be pretty special for him to hear one of the game's all-time greats gush about his talent.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has taken notice of Luck, the third-year Indianapolis Colts quarterback. He has little to do with Luck directly this week, when the Patriots play the Colts in a tremendous Sunday night matchup. They won't be on the field at the same time, but Brady went out of his way to praise Luck during his Wednesday press conference.

"He does a lot of things I wish I could do," said Brady, according to the Patriots' transcript. "Hes big, fast, shrugs off blockers. He makes a lot of extended plays. Hes a great passer. I think theyve thrown for more yards at this point in the year than any other team in history, so I guess that speaks to what theyre doing offensively."

Luck probably wishes he'll end up with a career like Brady. Brady is arguably the greatest quarterback ever, a three-time champion and a two-time MVP. And here Brady is heaping that kind of praise on a young quarterback. That says a lot about Luck.

Brady isn't facing Luck directly, but he knows that Luck affects what he has to do. Luck has an NFL-best 3,085 passing yards and the Colts have scored 290 points, most in the league.

"Were going to have to score a lot," Brady said. "When you play another great offense, youre going to have to put up a lot of points, similar to our last game. We realize we have a big job, too. Youre right, my focus is on other side of the ball, but you also know youre not going to be able to score 13 points and win the game."
