Schottenheimer to Andrew Luck: Stop throwing interceptions

Schottenheimer to Andrew Luck: Stop throwing interceptions

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck averaged about one interception per game in 2016, which is totally unacceptable for a franchise QB. What’s even more staggering is that he has 68 interceptions in the 70 games he’s playing in his professional career.

It’s high time Luck works on improving in that specific area, says quarterbacks coach Brian Schottenheimer:

“We say this all the time, ‘Andrew should not be a double-digit interception guy.’ Like that’s the phrase that we use,” Schottenheimer said, per Pro Football Talk.

“He’s just too good of a player. So again, if he can eliminate some of those decision-interceptions – I think there are five or six of them – those numbers drop significantly. You’re going to throw interceptions. It just happens. Normally they’re bad throws that cause those, but the decisions, if we can eliminate those, that’ll obviously help him drop down. That’s kind of the number we’ve been using. He should throw seven, eight, something like that. He had 13 [interceptions in 15 games] last year.”
