NFL Combine 2012: Colts Source Says Andrew Luck 'Is The Guy' For Them

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay seems just about ready to throw in the towel on Peyton Manning as a Yahoo! Sports report from Michael Silver suggests that Irsay is more than ready to pull the trigger on projected No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck.

Sure, Irsay has some uncomfortable times ahead of him, like having to cut the face of your franchise before having to pay him $28 million, but he's making sure to focus on the positives, like how Luck has been performing at the combine this weekend. The Colts aren't confused as to where their new direction in currently heading:

As one Colts source said earlier this week, "Luck is The Guy. I don't care what happens [at the combine]. I don't care if Griffin flies."

Luck certainly hasn't been performing poorly at the combine, in fact quite the opposite, which is just assurance that they're making the right decision by taking him No. 1 overall.
