Doug Flutie Compares Andrew Luck And Johnny Manziel

According to Yahoo Sports, former NFL quarterback Doug Flutie spoke to an audience about Andrew Luck and Johnny Manziel.

Flutie was very impressed with the way Luck stormed on to the NFL scene.

I was a little surprised at his level of successes he had right away in the NFL, at just how good he was early on, Flutie said to SDC. But there’s no doubt in my mind that I felt confident he would embark on a great career.

He then said he didn’t know Johnny Manziel as well as Luck. However, he did have some nice things to say about Johnny Football.

I just think he’s the type of guy that makes everyone around him better.”

Flutie also did not have anything to say in regards to Manziel’s “off-the-field activities.”

The two quarterbacks may not have similar personalities, but Flutie did say that he believes being a faster quarterback can actually aid a young guy.

I’d rather go up-tempo because then you have that time you need at the line of scrimmage.

He also said it’s something the younger quarterbacks struggle with.

Last season, Luck did anything but struggle.  He led the Colts to an 11-5 record and second consecutive trip to the postseason.
