News Flash: Pretty much everybody outside our fanbase thinks Luck is done. 

Luck got $87M guaranteed...why would I be grateful to not have his life?

I don't think you can highly respect the opinion of someone who dated a Kardashian.

 

But seriously, when surgery was announced there was grave cause for concern. At this point though either he'll be back or he won't and there's no reason to wallow in it. At the end of the day, be grateful it's not your shoulder and it doesn't affect your life.

Even if Luck retired tomorrow, I still don't think Ballard would "hit the Panic Button".  What does that even mean?  haha

 

Unless you call the Brissett trade and Reich hire panic moves to make up for no Luck or McDaniels, then if Ballard hasn't hit the panic button by now, I doubt he ever will.

 

:dunno:

Reggie Bush is a complete Tool! Andrew Luck will be fine and start on opening day. These media people are getting so hilarious that they are getting dumb. When Luck starts on opening day some people in here will probably delete their accounts lmao, If not they should after what I have been reading.

Based off of what Reggie? The fact he has a slow, methodical approach to his rehab instead of rushing back like he tried to last year?

Many in the national media are talking about the fact that Luck hasn't thrown a meaningful ball in well over a year, not played and 15 months after surgery he still isn't able to throw a true ball.  They discussed the fact he has to rework his footwork and anything he can to take the stress off his shoulder.  The question they ask is will he ever be what was expected at the start of his career...  They think not.  It was a major topic on NFL network this morning.  I personally can't stand the talking heads at the national level, but we all may be a bit guilty of drinking the blue kool-aid and maybe not as realistic as we should be....  Luck says he will be ready for Training camp, whatever "ready" means.  but if he can't be allowed to throw now, a true training camp for Luck seems a long way off......  Hope not!

I watched the video on the link and I agree to what they're saying to an extent. I personally wouldn't hit the "panic button" unless Andrew Luck still isn't throwing by training camp. Which, I think, could very well be a huge possibility that Luck will not be throwing or even considered "full go". It has been 70 weeks since Luck has thrown a football and Luck mentioned that he still doesn't feel perfect as of yesterday. I wouldn't be getting my hopes up for his return for game #1. Just my thoughts. Wish we could fast forward through the offseason craziness but that's what I'm thinking.

Yep. If Luck was another team, I wonder if many people here would think the same. 

people hate on every team, doubt it would change much

 

assuming he had the same injury i think it would be about the same

Well yeah lol when you put it that way. But I meant it more as whatever's happening with Andrew shouldn't affect your life.

I agree as well...except for the "panic button" part. There is no reason to panic...it is what it is. The Colts now just have to rebuild the roster so that it isn't dependent on an elite QB...which coincidentally, is what Ballard is clearly doing (and has said he wants to do).

 

It's just hard for me to look past all of the actions or lack of action. Luck still hasn't thrown...and Ballard spent almost no money in FA. A team that knows it is getting back top tier QB play does some retooling in the offseason, even if there is a focus on building through the draft...especially one that has $60M+ in cap space. 

 

So at the best, even if they think Luck will be able to play, I don't think they know what he will be like long-term. At worst, they know it's not happening. Either way, there is no reason to retool at this point. And if there is any chance that they would have to part ways with Luck in the near future, saving that cap is very prudent..

I agree. The situation sucks for us, but hopefully there will be resolution in the near future one way or the other.

At some point the rose colored glasses have to come off and put the facts together. Luck hasn't thrown a football in 16 months, hasn't played  or practiced in over 1 1/2 years by the time training camp starts. So your telling me luck is going to waltz into training camp, pick up a football and be ready to play 6 weeks later. Not going to happen folks. My prediction is he starts the season on IR and maybe returns by week 8. I hope Luck proves a lot of people wrong, including myself. Either way the sun will still shine bright tomorrow and I'll continue to scream for my colts. Will just be glad when all of this is over.

What would be the cap savings if we parted ways with luck next offseason? I'm sure the dead money for 2019 would be a chunk but would his contract clear the books after 2019?

That wasn't by choice.  We were turned down by every free agent we pursued, and this is why.  If there's no Luck, why would any free agent choose this situation?

3 and 1/2 months until camp?  Not throwing, not good physically?  Hardly encouraging.

 

In a few years, I'm not sure how the trade down in the first will look.

How dare Reggie have an opinion that we don't agree with. Doesn't he know that everything Colts related is all rainbows and smiles?

 

So what that our QB has missed 26 games in the last 3 years and still hasn't thrown a football. So what that the last time he did actually did throw a football he had to be shut down and placed on IR.

 

Everything is fine....nothing to see here....move on Reggie.

    • @Barry Sears   I will give you mine for Baseball too.   Indiana   Victory Field- Indianapolis. International League. Was my first professional baseball game like 15 years ago or so.    Four Winds Field- South Bend, IN. Midwest League. Went with a friend to see Cubs prospects. Really liked the smallness close to field feeling there.   Illinois   Dozer Park- Peoria, IL. MIdwest League- Numerous since I lived there for 13 years went from Cubs to Cards affiliate. Also worked there for a summer   Wrigley Field- Chicago, IL. Numerous times of course.   Guaranteed Rate Field - Chicago, IL. Saw White Sox vs Tigers and only 7 inning game as it poured rain after the 7th and game ended.   Iowa Principal Park Des Moines, IA. PCL - Was back in 2014 when Javy and KB were both there. Actually got a picture with KB and autograph after the game.   Massachutes Fenway Park- Boston, MA. Went in 2018 saw JD Martinez hit a HR over the Green Monster was really nice with electricity. Also they won WS later that year.   Missouri   Busch Stadium, St. Louis, MO. Been multiple times, and will probably be there in a couple weeks for a game since living here.   Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City, MO. Actually went on a tour of the stadium before the game and got to see and hold a 2015 WS Ring.    Hammons Field, Springfield, MO. Texas League. Multiple and Cards Double A team. Nice Stadium. Went a lot as it was up the street from school the last 3 years.    New York   Citi Field, Queens, NY. 1 game, sadly was really raining but was really nice going there and loved the Apple in CF   Yankees Stadium, Bronx, NY. Got to sit right behind bullpens. Energetic and enjoyed seeing some historical aspects but still new Stadium.    Ohio   Great American Ballpark Cincinnati, OH- 2 games. Really like the park. Seemed like it is situated for family to come to and see. Like their club seats and special area for that.   Pennsylvania   Citizens Bank Park- Philadelphia, PA- Liked the open concept of the stadium there. easy to walk around. Loved the bullpen being stacked on each other.   Wisconsin   Miller Park. Really Outdated already. A/C was terrible since roof was closed. Even if didnt hate Brewers, I still would put park at bottom. Just did not seem like anybody cared when making it. It is same level to me as A's or TB's     Ontario Rogers Centre, Toronto, ON, CAD- Really interesting park. Enjoyed that a hotel is located in it. Found it funny you can bounce baseball on the field due to turf. Better bang for your buck than US parks. Food was cheap. Ended up getting 2 tickets 20 rows behind home plate for 50$ total. Would recommend, but never got to see it with roof open   So I have 11 MLB stadiums, 5 MiLB teams  
    • https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2939828-the-7-most-plausible-2021-nfl-draft-day-trades   Chargers trade from 13 to 7 Trade i mentioned here 
    • That is an extremely solid WR group that is more than adequate.  If our running game, defense and coaches do their jobs as well the Colts will make some noise. Time for Ballards draft picks to step up bc it’s their time to shine. I’m very excited about Pittman, Campbell and Patmon. 
    • I like it too. I think it's solid with a lot of potential upside. Pittman and/or Patmon could break out, Campbell might stay healthy, TY hopefully picks up where he left off during the second half of last season.    With that being said, I wouldn't be too surprised to see a WR drafted at some point at the end of this month. I've seen some mocks giving the Colts Rashod Bateman at #21 which I don't understand at all but outside of the first round it wouldn't surprise me.
    • That could be something different, I suppose.  It certainly goes back to NorthernColt’s original point, which is that the Colts have a process for vetting such medical issues.  And if Ballard, armed with much more medical info than we’ll ever see, feels comfortable enough to draft him, then that should be good enough for us.  That’s a pretty valid point.  However, as we stand right now, just knowing that he has an extensive concussion history...well, I’d grade him down quite a few spots for that...
