Herm Edwards: Andrew Luck has "potatoes in his trunk"

New, comments

It's amazing to hear the comments that football analysts make about the guys in the NFL combine. It's like they suddenly have license to examine the bodies of these top-notch athletes, and boy do they love it. The best I've heard so far came yesterday while former NFL coach Herm Edwards talked about presumptive No. 1 draft pick Andrew Luck. Edwards was glowing about Luck's physical prowess, saying the Stanford quarterback has "potatoes in his trunk."

That prompted the host to respond with: "Better than lima beans."

Indeed.
