Andrew Luck's issues versus Oregon
He's an elite QB, but poor decisions may cost him against a constantly rotated D
If Stanford Cardinal quarterback Andrew Luck is looking for a movie to inspire him for this weekend's game against the Oregon Ducks, he might want to skip the usual football fare such as "Remember The Titans" or "Invincible" and instead go with the Clint Eastwood Dirty Harry film "Magnum Force."
Harry Callahan's mantra throughout that picture is, "A man's got to know his limitations." That is helpful advice for any endeavor and is especially useful for a quarterback making his first trip to the insanely noisy environment that is Autzen Stadium.
It is thought that Luck already has that mindset ingrained in him, but after looking at game tapes from the past two seasons, it is clear that he doesn't always take that approach.
For the full breakdown of what to expect from Luck and why this game might present an unique challenge, you need to be an ESPN Insider.
