We've seen Andrew Luck be effusive in his praise of Reggie Wayne, saying a few weeks ago that he is often "in awe" of Wayne. As it turns out, Reggie thinks Luck is pretty special too. He told us during Tuesday's show that he thinks the best is still yet to come from the rookie quarterback:
Despite only being twelve games into his career, Jake asked Reggie if he felt like he had the same rapport with Andrew Luck that he did with (inevitable Peyton comparison alert!) Peyton Manning. Surprisingly, he said yes:

For Luck, he's had a veteran that he can rely on, and a player that knows what it takes to be an elite quarterback from his experience playing ten seasons with one (second alert!).
