Andrew Luck may be one of the weirdest players in the NFL. The Indianapolis Colts quarterback has started to confuse enemy pass rushers not by his impressive play, but by congratulating defenders for hard hits. Andrew Luck's routine on-field praise of opposing players has left Colts foes confused. Luck has become known to dole out "nice play, buddy" and "good hit" kudos almost as often as he finds wide receivers open down the field. Opponents don't know how to handle the compliment. They like to hear smack talk or complaints to the Ref so that they know they are getting to the QB's head. But not with Luck. "I'm like 'what's going on? Aren't you supposed to be mad?' " Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Nolan Carroll told the newspaper. "So then I'm the one who gets ticked off because an upbeat attitude isn't something you see." Does Luck do this intentionally? Maybe but his father said that his son was raised this way. Maybe it's not too late to raise athletes like Luck who enjoy the game and want everyone to play well. It's nice to know that there are still classy guys playing professional sports!
It's like GG in gaming. Sportsmanship is a class trait and I'm glad he has it. It's all a game in the end, best to give everything and respect it as one.
One of the few players I can probably show my future kids to be a role model
one of the best players to ever step on the field
hahaha... confuse them with kindness lol that is an interesting one. I guess that is a way to get to other players, though. Complaints basically mean you are getting rattled. Smack talk doesn't stand out. Kindness? Well, it definitely would get my attention during a game lol
I've been a fan of Luck's since Stanford, and he's always been this kind of guy. An admirable player and great human being. I love to see this among athletes. I'm going to have a hard time cheering against him this weekend!
