Luck performs for media in Manning’s house

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on February 24, 2012 – 4:48 pm

INDIANAPOLIS–Andrew Luck was in the house Peyton Manning built, which is likely to become Luck’s house soon.

The Stanford quarterback is expected to become the first overall pick of the 2012 NFL draft. The Colts hold the pick and might even sign Luck to a contract before draft day. So it was an event of sorts when Luck met with the media at the scouting combine on Friday.

“Peyton was my hero growing up. You never truly replace a guy like that. I’m not thinking about that right now,” Luck said.

Luck might’ve been the only person in Indianapolis who wasn’t thinking about the prospect of him replacing Manning as the Colts’ quarterback.

Out with the old, in with the new, right? That’s life in the NFL, even for Manning, the star of stars. It is, after all, truly a young man’s game.

It was with Manning-type poise that Luck answered questions on Friday. The similarity was eerie.

“The question has to be asked. I understand it. That’s not uncomfortable. I understand that questions have to be asked,” Luck said.
