this is a bold move IMO...I don't think it is the right move either, but we will see I guess

Way different situations for both.

Alex is asked to do much less. It's not all on his shoulders. He hasn't ever attempted more than 35 passes this year, he averages about 26 pass attempts a game in his 8 healthy games, and averaged 207 yards per game.

Andrew Luck is asked to carry the offense. He has been asked to pass 41 times per game, is averaging virtually 300 passing yards a game.

Context. Use it.
