Colts Turn Their Luck to Start 2017 to QB Scott Tolzien

IF the Colts are going to be competitive in the AFC South this season, they will have to get use to the fact they will need more than Andrew Luck in order to do it.

No team can rely on one player to win them a championship, and if you get to betfair for their betfair sign up offer right now, you can see the Colts are a whopping 50/1 to win the Super Bowl, a lot of the reason why being the fact that Luck is still nowhere near ready to go and play 16 games.

For week one, we already know that it’s going to be Scott Tolzien taking over for Luck, and if he can’t get the job done while the team waits for Luck to get back into action, they will turn at some point to recently traded for Jacoby Brissett.

But don’t count Tolzien out just yet.

Colts tight end Jack Doyle had some pretty interesting comments about Tolzien on Friday on NFL Networks morning show – Good Morning Football.

He said that while he can understand a lot of Colts fans might be upset about the situation with Luck and him not being able to take the field right now, don’t fall asleep on the Colts starter for this week in Tolzien, as he feels there’s some fire there for the quarterback to show up and play well.

“Scott’s a great competitor first off, he’s done a great job coming in here and taking command of the offense in Andrew’s absence and he’s a fearless competitor,” Doyle said. “That’s what you’ll see from him. Smart guy. Can make all the throws. So you see a guy that comes out there and really competes and has the desire to lead this team and win.”

Tolzien himself got a rude intro in the NFL last season, and while it will also be up to the Colts to keep the quarterback upright, the Colts Sunday starter sounded at ease when he spoke to the assembled media on Wednesday.

“It is different, but surprisingly, it’s not as different as you might think because you always prepare as if you’re going to start,” Tolzien said on Wednesday at the Colts practice. “You just try to treat it like every other game and not make it any different.”

That is easier said than done, but a good start to 2017 is key for this Colts team, and like it or not, it will be up to their QB in Tolzien to get the job done.
