Maybe I’m reading this guys tweet incorrectly? He seems to be saying that Luck retired due to the snow boarding accident.
Couple of points to make....
1. Wasn’t the snowboarding accident several years ago?
2. Didn’t the snowboarding accident result in a shoulder injury?
3. Didn’t Luck retire due to some mysterious lower leg injury?
If this is all true, and I believe it is, the dots don’t connect. In other words, this guy was wrong before and there’s no reason — for now — to believe he’d be right this time.
If Luck comes back — great. If he wants to play elsewhere — fine. We’d get draft picks. If he wants to play for the Colts — that’s fine too. To me Luck coming back is a win-win. And if not, we move on....
It's not like these guys are feeling no pressure whatsoever. They're both kicking for their livelihoods. Their jobs. Their paychecks. Their families.
With no preseason games, whichever doesn't make the team will likely be out of the league this year.
There is NO shortage of pressure on these two in practice.
