No one would confuse Andrew Luck with the Washington Redskins' Robert Griffin III, the Carolina Panthers' Cam Newton or the Seattle Seahawks' Russell Wilson - three quarterbacks who finished the regular season at the top of the NFL at their position in rushing. But that doesn't mean that the Indianapolis Colts rookie can't take off when he wants to or has to. Luck ranks second in the AFC and eighth in the league in rushing, compiling 255 yards. His five rushing touchdowns put him in a third-place tie with the San Francisco 49ers' Colin Kaepernick behind Newton (eight)

INDIANAPOLIS -- It wasn't long before Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck discovered the location of Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb . Once Luck found Webb, he began regularly peppering the veteran cornerback with a series of short-to-intermediate passes to his receivers. Webb allowed no touchdown passes or deep completions, but Luck completed several passes on him for first downs during the Colts' 20-13 win on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. That included the bulk of wide receiver Reggie Wayne 's seven catches for 77 yards along with a 16-yard completion to wide receiver Hakeem Nicks in the fourth quarter two plays before Luck rushed for a 13-yard touchdown.

With zero touchdown passes, one interception and three sacks, quarterback Andrew Luck finished with a 59.8 passer rating in the Indianapolis Colts' 24-9 loss to the Ravens in Sunday's AFC Wildcard playoff game. But the top overall pick in the NFL draft in April impressed the Ravens defensive players with his ability to scramble, which he used three times to gain first downs. “He's amazing. He was keeping plays alive,” cornerback Corey Graham said. “He looked like Big Ben [Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers]

ESPN's Mike Sando sure knows how we like to fill our Ravens downtime - with talk of just how elite quarterback Joe Flacco is. The ESPN writer polled a number of NFL sources and asked a total of 28 to grade each of the league's starting quarterbacks, then put those into tiers in a piece today on the Worldwide Leader. The piece is behind ESPN Insider's pay wall, but here's the spoiler you're looking for - Joe Flacco isn't in the elite tier. Sando's poll had Flacco at No. 12 in the league, in Tier 2, which included Eli Manning (New York Giants)

Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck is the winner of the 2011 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, given to the top fourth- or fifth-year signal-caller in college football. "Andrew personifies everything that my father stood for. He is not simply an outstanding quarterback, but an outstanding individual, a leader both on and off the field," said John C. Unitas, Jr., President of The Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Educational Foundation. Luck, who passed for 3,170 yards and 35 touchdowns for a 167.5 passer rating in leading fourth-ranked Stanford to an 11-1 record, will be presented the award Friday at the Intercontinental Harbor Court downtown.

One of this weekend's AFC playoff games pits the Ravens against the Indianapolis Colts. There are many storylines linked to Sunday's contest including the history between Baltimore and Indianapolis, the inspiring story of Colts coach and former Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano, and the impending return of former Ravens like defensive end Cory Redding, free safety Tom Zbikowski and offensive lineman Joe Reitz. There's also the matter of the two quarterbacks, the Ravens' Joe Flacco and the Colts' Andrew Luck.

Andrew Luck may be NFL-ready, but the Stanford quarterback — who could end up joining Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts — said Friday that he would have no problem being drafted by a team with an established quarterback. "I'm sure it would be a positive. I'm sure it would all work out, whatever the situation is," said Luck, who was in Baltimore to accept the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, which goes to college football's top senior or fourth-year junior quarterback.

Rookie has amazed Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times It's a bizarre coincidence that at the midway point of the season, Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck have identical passing yardage totals (2,404, tied for third) and team records (5-3). Overall, Manning has better numbers with the league's best completion percentage (69.5, compared to Luck's 29th-ranked 56.6) and passer rating 108.6 (Luck is 25th at 79.0). So, by the numbers, Manning is having a better season. But what Luck is doing in Indianapolis is phenomenal.

Arians can help Cutler Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times Bruce Arians is the best choice for the Bears. This is a team that has the franchise's best quarterback in the modern era in Jay Cutler, an elite receiver in Brandon Marshall, a running back who's making $8 million per year in Matt Forte, yet can't consistently generate an offense. Arians is the guy who can get the most out of Cutler, just as he did with Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh. The Bears want a power running game?

RG3 has better support Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times Robert Griffin III will have a better rookie season because he'll be surrounded by a better supporting cast. The Redskins have a better-than-respectable defense, and an offense that's primed to succeed with a double-threat quarterback like RG3, especially with his accuracy on deep passes. That's not to say Luck is the wrong choice for the Colts. He should eventually round into an elite NFL quarterback.

Nationally, the TV audience for the first night of the NFL draft was down a bit from last year, but Baltimore tuned in in a big way. ESPN's round one coverage earned a 4.6 overnight rating Thursday, according to preliminary Nielsen figures supplied by the channel. That's the third highest-rated overnight since round one began airing on Thursday in 2010. That year's telecast earned a 5.4 rating, while last year's Thursday night coverage scored a 4.8. Locally, Baltimore finished fourth among metered markets behind Buffalo, New Orleans and Kansas City.

In this game-day staple, blogger Matt Vensel makes four sometimes-courageous predictions for the game. All he asks is that you don't hold it against him whenever those predictions end up being embarrassingly wrong. For the fifth straight year, the Ravens are back in the playoffs. I'm sure in a private moment, one with truth serum or a few adult beverages involved, some players would admit that this year's team isn't as good as the one that came up just short in last year's AFC title game.

The time was right Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times Let's limit this to Bill Polian, as he was the true decision-maker here and Chris is clearly replaceable. Firing him was the right thing to do because the Colts need a fresh start and need to be as attractive and maleable as possible to attract the best next coach. With Polian there, an executive with arguably more power than any in the NFL, a new coach would be plugged in to that rigid pecking order. That won't work for everyone.

Time to clean slate Joseph Schwerdt Sun Sentinel Until Jim Caldwell gets another chance to coach, there will be questions about whether he won only because he inherited Tony Dungy's team or because he had Peyton Manning to run the offense. With Dungy gone three years and Manning injured, Caldwell couldn't keep the Colts (2-14) upright. The same questions were asked in the 1990s about George Seifert with the 49ers and Barry Switzer with the Cowboys. Questions aside, the Colts appear to be cleaning the slate as they did in 1997, and Caldwell had to go. Vice Chairman Bill Polian and general manager Chris Polian were the first to get fired.

Whatever happens Sunday in Baltimore, it's been an amazing football season to countenance. Whatever happens, even a Ravens' blowout, this has been the most fun, inspiring, unlikely season anybody around here can remember. Remember when the season started and Colts players wore T-shirts reminding them how they were power-ranked 32nd by several publications? They've built the monster, done it two, three years ahead of when anybody had a right to believe it might be done. And they've done it with a couple of holdover veterans and a bunch of rookies who don't seem to know they're not supposed to be here.

The Indianapolis Colts' reversal from a 2-14 record in 2011 to an 11-5 mark this season could largely be traced to Andrew Luck, who established several NFL rookie records this season. But to his teammates, Luck is still a 23-year-old first-year player who isn't too old to understand his role on a team filled with veterans. "I think there are times when, yeah, you don't feel like a rookie, I guess," Luck said. "But there are still times when you feel like a rookie when you carry Dwight Freeney's jersey in after practice.
