Luck unlucky in 2012?
By AJ Mass
Andrew Luck certainly had himself an amazing rookie campaign, throwing for 4,374 yards and 23 touchdowns and completing 54.1 percent of his passes. Just imagine how much better those stats would have been had his receivers not been so clumsy.
Pro Football Focus put together a list of the receivers with the most drops on the season, and two of the most frequent offenders just so happen to be Donnie Avery and T.Y. Hilton, who combined to let 22 "catchable balls" fall by the wayside.
Considering Luck ranked only 31st in the league in completion percentage, one can only imagine how much better his final stat line might be in 2013 and beyond if his receivers don't let him down nearly as much in the future.
