Has Luck solidified his status as a top 10 QB after coming back from a tough injury?

Easily.

I'd even put him into top-5 now that he has a good o-line.

Probably the most obvious winner in all of this.

Has Luck solidified his status as a top 10 QB after coming back from a tough injury?

Well let's see here:

Is his name Andrew Luck? Yep.

Did he play football last year? Yes he did.

Then yes virtually everyone will automatically name him a top 10 QB, regardless of what actually happens.

No brainer hopefully he can build off this season. Things are looking promising for the Colts now that they have a good coach and GM.

Well he was one of the best QBs in the AFC after missing the previous season.

He played great for a guy who hasn't thrown a football in over a full season, no doubt. But people automatically putting him back on the mantle of top-5 status (when he wasn't even there previously) is just ridiculous. Look at any of these efficiency stats. Luck is basically a glorified Matthew Stafford when Stafford was leading the league in pass attempts every year with Calvin Johnson.

I agree the main thing holding him back from entering the top 5 is the turnover problems. Also I wouldn’t be surprised if the Colts go after Karem Hunt to help improve that run game and take pressure off Luck.

Except Andrew Luck doesn't have CJ as a safety blanket. When you're the whole offense, and your best weapon is a WR, you're gonna throw a lot.

I'm a big Watt supporter (as you guys can imagine) but Luck runs away with this. Any other year, Watt wins - but Luck was a flame thrower out there this season.

They definitely need a run game - but even this year it wasn't like they had nobody back there who could run it. They had decent balance and Luck's turnover issues still persisted. It's just who he is.

I'm not saying because he throws a lot he's not that great, it's the fact that he throws a lot AND his efficiency stats aren't good. It's plain bulk stats but that's what catches the eye of the average person.
