Tomorrow Andrew Luck begins his career as an NFL starting quarterback against the Chicago Bears.  Luck has been touted as the best quarterback prospect since Peyton Manning was drafted and has appeared to be a quick learner.  However, the Chicago Bears may have a few defensive schemes hidden up their sleeves to keep Luck off balance and confused.  The Bears have a past of confusing rookie quarterbacks such as John Elway and Michael Vick.  In Elway’s rookie year he was 4 for 10 for 36 yards against the Bears and was benched by coach Dan Reeves.  Vick faced a similar fate in his rookie year.  Vick entered the game as a backup for an injured starter.  Upon entering the game, Vick was sacked six times and fumbled twice.  Could the Bears have similar tricks ready for Sunday to unleash on Luck?  Head Coach Lovie Smith said Friday, “it’s probably safe to say” Luck will see more from the Bear’s defense than he has seen on film.  The Bears will look to pressure Luck and make him as uncomfortable as possible in his rookie debut.  Luck will have a baptism by fire and will be truly tested in his first game.  It will be fun to see how Luck handles it and adjusts.
