    Andrew Luck is not trying to be the second coming of Peyton Manning with the Indianapolis Colts.

    "I realize If I got caught up in trying to fill Peyton's shoes, comparing myself to him every day, I'd probably go crazy because it's unattainable,'' he said. ``So I try not to do it like that.''

    Luck, the number one pick in this year's draft, has led the Colts to a surprising 6-3 record entering Sunday's game against the Patriots. He spoke by conference call with New England reporters Wednesday and did all he could to distance himself from talk about how the quarterbacks, Manning and Tom Brady, have made the Pats-Colts rivalry one of the best in the league.

    "I definitely don't deserve to be in that sentence or that breath,'' the Stanford grad said. "Some day if I could play at a level that Peyton and Tom play at, that would be a quarterback's dream come true.''

    well, he's actually started out better than peyton did in his rookie season so maybe he's not looking to fill his shoes.......... maybe he's looking to completely replace them.
