Colts GM compares Andrew Luck’s ability to win with Michael Jordan

Andrew Luck had more game-winning drives than Peyton Manning had wins through their first 21 NFL starts. Nearly half of Luck’s 23 victories have been of the comeback variety.

His GM wanted to compare him to a legend, but is it too early?

“He’s always been a different animal in the fourth quarter, his whole life,” general manager Ryan Grigson told NFL Media’s Albert Breer. “… It’s like (Michael) Jordan when he’d take that last shot — he wants the ball.

“This guy, we’re so blessed, he wants the ball in those situations,” Grigson went on. “Other guys don’t want the ball; they want to hand it off. They don’t really want it — they’re gonna be half-stepping it. This kid is gonna rear back and throw a bomb when he has all the pressure on him. And that’s a thing of beauty. You’re born with that.”

I don’t know about Michael Jordan, but Andrew Luck is a true leader. He has definitely made me eat crow, because I thought RG3 was a better player, but thankful Russell Wilson was my number 1 guy coming out.  At least he is winning.
