Irsay puts Colts on notice to better protect Luck

There is little doubt that the Indianapolis Colts will go as far this season as Andrew Luck can take them.

As a rookie, he guided them to a playoff berth, and on Sunday was solid in a season-opening victory against Oakland.

But Colts owner Jim Irsay, using his favorite media outlet - Twitter - says the team has to do a better job of protecting its star quarterback and laid the responsibility at the feet of the entire team, not just the offensive line.

Irsay's tweet said, "Raider/Colts-- we gotta protect #12 better..and that includes more than just OL...it's backs,TE's,coaches on blitz pick ups..I DEMAND better"
