Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts have made a truly horrible start to the 2015 NFL season, with neither the quarterback nor the team living up to their hype.
Luck was supposed to kick on this campaign and truly cement himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the league, while the Colts were backed by the bookies to potentially make a run at the Super Bowl.
Instead, the Colts are struggling badly and Luck threw three more interceptions last night - something which he has decided to take responsibility for.

Indy went down 29-26 to the Panthers in Carolina on Monday Night Football with Luck handing Ron Rivera's side the win with an overtime interception that led to the game-winning field goal from Graham Gano. Following the game, Luck said that he is disappointed in himself and vows to improve.
“It’s my problem and it’s hurting the team,” Luck said, according to the Indianapolis Star. “And I’ve got to fix it or else it’s tough to win doing it."
"Disappointed in myself. … It’s hard to find perspective right now. We lost. At the end of the day, that’s what matters. We did some decent things to give ourselves a chance, but messed it up at the end by throwing an interception.”
Whilst Luck may currently be hobbled by his reported fractured ribs, which neither he nor Chuck Pagano would talk about post-game, he certainly doesn't look right out on the gridiron.
The Colts need to make some changes if they want to be a serious contender this year, but it might already be too late.
