I'm 29 and mentally tired. Can I quit my job today?

If you have millions, sure.

Maybe do a little snowboarding?

 

You were one of the people booing at the game, weren’t you?  Or, if you weren’t there, you would’ve booed him if you had been.  The people who did that made us all look awful.

 

The guy has been through hell the past several years — and it’s harder than any of us know to compete at that level.  Get off his back.

i would gladly take those injuries for 100 million.... its hard to feel so bad when you see guys like farve with broken ribs playing .    ty had a worse foot injury last year walking with a bad limp and still carried the colts never gave up .    luck gave up simple as that.  he never had the brady manning passion for the game he is into other stuff and got bored of working .  if tom brady missed 5 season in a row he would never quit . we need a Qb with a burning passion not one who gives up with a mild sprain.       that is why i love manning and wanted to keep him  with spine surgery couldnt even grip a football a injury 100 times worse then anything luck went through and his passion to never give up is why i  am his biggest fan.

It's very easy to be so brave on Internet, right? What do you know for sure about Andrew's injuries? Yeah, playing with broken ribs is a great headline to remember... but not when you can't remember your girl's name because of concussion.

1) Do you realize how much money Andrew is leaving behind to do this?  It’s going to be a lot, particularly if there are clawback clauses in his contract dealing with signing bonuses and such.

 

2) If he’s incapable of getting and staying healthy enough to play at peak performance, then he’d be doing the team a disservice in many ways to stick around.  Think about the cap hit.  Think about the FO delaying the hunt for another franchise QB while waiting for him to get back to form.  Think about him keeping Brissett and/or Kelly from getting their shot.

 

3). These players are just as human as the rest of us.  They’re not just robots who go out and perform 16 days a year for our enjoyment.

 

JJ Watt said it very well last night — that it’s easy for any of us to say what we’d do if we were in his shoes....but he’s the only one actually in those shoes.

 

I’m just as bummed as anybody that Andrew’s career ended how it did, as soon as it did.  I’m just as bummed that we have to ask ourselves “what if.”  But it’s absolutely wrong for Colts fans to be angry at him.

 

Last night, when I heard that booing, was the first time I can ever remember being ashamed of fellow Colts’ fans (I’m not going to paint with too wide a brush...I’m sure the booing was isolated and most of us are grateful for all of Andrew’s efforts the past 7 years).

 

The fans who booed and who are berating him for making this decision should be ashamed of themselves.

Just some *ic nonsense from some kid. This thread should just be taken down.

I’m sure it’s really hard working at that gas station. Your poor shoulder, kidney and ankle. Not to mention the mental toll it must take on you going through rehab the last several years when you mop the floor and change trash bags.

So I will take a small bite.  There are thousands of people that literally work themselves to death enduring extreme medical conditions and get denied Medicaid.  I have personally experienced a 40 year old father die of heart congestion as he was forced to work for his families welfare.

 

Additionally, tons of talk recently bashing running backs that are upset about their physical welfare and their compensation.  I have heard many many people bash them saying they signed a contract etc etc.

 

Luck signed a contract which is a two way agreement.  We compensate you for your services, for this duration, at this price and upfront money.  

 

Why is it ok to bash the running backs and yet Luck is exempt?  

 

Now if he is really breaking mentally then perhaps that moves things towards the exempt category.  If he just isn't "into it" and "no longer loves football" then by all means honor your commitment and don't treat him special.

 

I wish Luck the best and if he is truly struggling with mental demons I hope he gets well.  I so appreciate what he brought to the team. 

 

If he just doesn't want to put the work in and doesn't have to because he is a millionaire then that means to me he just quit on the team, fan base, and doesn't honor commitments.

Yes. Go ahead and do it.

 

I doubt you were good enough at it to have the money Luck has though.

    • T.Y. Hilton, Marlon Mack likely to play Sunday   https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/09/22/t-y-hilton-marlon-mack-likely-to-play-sunday/   ...Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports that wide receiver T.Y. Hilton and running back Marlon Mack are both likely to play in Week Three. Pregame warmups will be the final obstacle to clear before they are given the green light...
    • Glad what we’ve been seeing for years is finally being brought to the forefront, especially since not all QBs benefited from the special treatment. Luck used to get constantly  murdered back there and barely ever got the officials “protection.”   Brady said too many flags...  
    • I expect  Brissett  to be much better eventually.  Luck was brought  along just as slow the beginning  of last year and every one was like where are the deep balls? Eventually  Cain, Campbell,  or Roger's will get more involved  with offense.   
    • To me, we would know his progression, not ceiling. I’ll bet the playbook is still not fully installed yet, nor fully grasped by all of the player.  Some are further along than others as well.  I believe we can thank the CBA (with its very much reduced coach/player/team activities in the off season) at least in part for the less than stellar offensive creativity and brilliance in execution.   JB is a Works In Progress. I don’t feel that 4 weeks will determine his final destination. Unless, he really isn’t going to be more than average.  I’m watching the full year.  That should be a good indicator for what the team should plan to do next off season/training camp,
    • For a second, based on the link title, I thought that someone pulled an Aaron Hernandez.
