Before answering to this post, please think about one thing, and would you then answer Yes or NO to these questions.
"Would you risk your health and being tied to a wheel chair the rest of your life, and never again being capable of doing the YMCA chant, if you had to do what Andrew Luck has been through week after week, for several years?" ( Don't think about the money )
Of course Andrew Luck is injured, and it's a very serious injurie.
BUT, and I know it's a crazy argument im bringing here, but try to hear me out a second.
We all know Andrew Luck has been banged up week after week, his entire career in Indy. Not only due to a bad O-line, but also because he have made some bad decisions which have cost him a hit or two or three pr. game.
But we also know that Andrew Luck is a very smart and clever man, with a degree in concrete or something like that, which you dont get if your stupid.
So even though I know he's banged up and his rehab/ recovery is dragging out, I cant stop thinking about one thing.
Is he actually that banged up that he can't play?
Or is he being smart/ intelligent to take this season for what it is, and have decided to wait for a new coaching staff, which will bring him an O-line who can protect him and not risking his health and future as a QB. And therefore NOT as banged up as the reports indicate, but he's just acting like it and "faking it"?
If he's playing "hide and seek" (pretending to be injured) I 100% understand him, and though the colts end up throwing away this season, this could be a very good thing for both Andrew and the Colts.
After this season, we all know Chuck Pagano will be gone, unless some miracle happen and we win the super bowl or gets in to the playoff.
So a new coach, hopefully a bunch of talented O-line players and a new start, is what Luck is really waiting for.
Again I know he's not faking it, because he´s a winner, he wants to play every game and he's tougher than most QB's in this league, but he's not stupid.
Nice guys finish last... Luck is no more the nice guy... he's just realized it's okay to do whatever it takes to win, and faking it like some women do from time to time, is okay if you're not satisfied with the situation at hand.
Hope Andrew is getting better and well soon, so we can watch him reclaim his throne in the AFC South next season and the NFL.
