The Indianapolis Colts may have lost Week 1 to the Jacksonville Jaguars, but they got a glimpse at what Anthony Richardson can be at the NFL.
The Colts took a swing in the 2023 NFL Draft when they selected Richardson fourth overall, signaling that they believed in his potential to be their franchise quarterback despite his lack of experience.
In his debut, Richardson definitely had some rookie moments but he also made plays that should give Indianapolis fans something to look forward to.
Dual-threat quarterbacks are all the rage in the league right now, and Richardson has the arm and legs to make the Colts offense dangerous.
Richardson is a far cry from former Indianapolis star Andrew Luck who was a maestro in the pocket and could make just about any throw on the field.
When asked what quarterback he’s trusting to win the team a game in the final two minutes, Bruce Arians surprisingly took Luck via PFF.
Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Big Ben, Carson Palmer or Andrew Luck?

Arians spent one season with Luck during his rookie year when he served as the offensive coordinator and then the interim head coach during the 2012 NFL season.
Luck was considered the next great quarterback prospect and played like a signal caller who was far beyond his years.
Arians has been fortunate enough to coach several of the game’s best quarterbacks, so it was interesting to hear him pick Luck over players like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.
Luck is a name that often gets forgotten, but Colts fans will always remember what he did for the organization.NEXT: Insider Provides Update On Anthony Richardson's Injury Scare
