Wow...hope this isn't true.  But if it is...always felt like he didn't really love the game and had other interests.  Would be a shame for our franchise.  

This is horrible to say, but I had a bad feeling when he got married and his wife got pregnant. I could tell he wanted to focus on his family... which is totally his perogative, but I knew we had lost him then. :Cry:

After battling injury after injury, the word is that #Colts QB Andrew Luck was simply too worn down to continue. And so he abruptly retires at age 29. Jacoby Brissett is the new QB of the Colts.

We gave the greatest QB prospect since Manning & Elway Grigson & Pagano to work with...  If he is done that will be the legacy left...

Kind of hard to argue with that, honestly.

Time to start looking at next years QB's in the draft and see who we could use all of our draft capital to move up and draft.....

Unfortunately I think the year after is the real QB year.  I think Lawrence & Fields both have star potential.

We still have JB for one more year.  Now we have to think about extending him.  Geez...this is bad on so many levels.

Whoever said "gut punch" said it all. I thought it was some sort of bad joke. No words that are fitting for a family forum.

The more I think about this, the madder I get....I have lost all respect for Luck, no longer a fan at all!

I don't take it so personally.  Have no idea what is going through his head and body.  he has to make the best decision for he and his family.

 

As a Colts fan, though, it's the worst case scenario.  Completely bumbed about it.  Going to be tough to go to sleep tonight, but the sun will shine in the morning...

    • His body type.  Overall, his measurements are a bit odd. He looks like a top heavy linebacker.  Only 6-2, small lower body, very thick upper body.  His wingspan is about a foot shorter than guys like Autry or Buckner. So not really ideal for a disruptive 3T. He's on the shorter side of DTs, but weighs 287ish Since he's going to have strengthen his lower half, he'll likely add 10+ pounds. If he gets in 300 range, that's ideal for a NT. And NTs don't really need height or wingspan. 
    • That 2018 year was so fun, man. Andrew's comeback year... started off 1-5... then Andrew TURNS. IT. ON... we rattle off 9 of 10 to finish the regular season!? SMOKED the Cowboys. DONUT. And they were the "hottest team in football" at that time having won like 6 or 7 in a row. Dispatched them. I can't remember exactly who, but I know 2 or 3 of those wins were against the "hottest team in football", all having been on streaks until we put them down and took that crown. Andrew Luck was G** mode during that stretch.   Open up wildcard weekend with the Texans, I'm a little worried... you know how those division rivalries go... I'm thinking it's gonna be close... we receive the ball, first or second pass of the game: TTTYYYYY HILTON DEEEP. EARLY. HIS HOUSE. March down 3 times in a row. Omfg I was hype! Get them outta here! We end up getting beat up by the Chiefs in the divisional but MAN I didn't care! THIS is how Andrew Luck looks after not playing 1.5 years!?   This is maybe only my third favorite season, but really I just wanted to relive and state this: this was the best, eye-test-wise, that I'd EVER seen Andrew Luck look! And we'd seen him look good prior! I mean I was in AWE at times... spinning out of DE sacks RIGHT on time without even looking... frequently. Looked like Wilson 2.0 in the pocket! Hitting that back step and letting it GO immediately. Within that stretch I would literally be able to call OUT the deep TY strikes each time. He and Frank were in such a groove that I'd literally call out to my friends WHEN we were gonna dial it up.. Me: "It's this play right here" *Luck drops back* *step 1* *2* *3* Me: "GOTTEM" *BOMB*. THIS all is what made the retirement sting even more to me... he had just played the best I'd ever seen him... showed me that we haven't even seen him peak... convinced me that we were SB favorites the next year, and then boom.   Thanks for allowing me to relive this.
    • If Raimann emerges quickly, I won't complain.  But I also won't complain if Pryor turns into a lockdown LT and we extend him.   But overall, I just want the best 5 on the field. And last season didn't seem like Fisher or R Kelly were in that group. Just can't let Ryan get clobbered like Wentz did. 
    • Every profile I've read on him talks about drops. He had drops reported in OTAs as well.  I've also watched several of his games. He's not a natural catcher. Especially away from the body.   I see your two links, and raise you RAS and a few other links. I've yet to find errors on RAS and the nflcombineresults.com site. The PFR site row of info looks iffy. It's void of several fields.    https://nflcombineresults.com/playerpage.php?i=30828 https://www.si.com/college/virginia/football/jelani-woods-stands-out-at-nfl-combine https://coltswire.usatoday.com/2022/04/20/indianapolis-colts-jelani-woods-workout-nfl-draft-2022/#:~:text=Woods came out of the,posted a 37.5-inch vertical. https://steelersdepot.com/2022/04/2022-nfl-draft-player-profiles-virginia-te-jelani-woods/
