I feel like I did the night we cut Peyton....

This makes that hurt that little bit more which I didn't think was possible.

IMO Jacoby will do fine with this OL and supporting staff

Well we all knew this was going to be an important year for Jacoby to prove he could be a NFL starter.  We just didn’t think it would be for the Colts.  IMO while not a franchise QB you can win with Brissett and swapping Dorset for Brissett might turn out to be the biggest move Ballard ever made.

So hes not entitled to change his profession? If I quit my job at the coal mine because I'm developing black lung, that doesnt make me a quitter.

 

Yeah I bet you've really suffered, probably due to your own stupidity, but that doesnt count.

 

You're just a complete *.

 

Sorry just had to add. I find it hilarious as you berate me for "calling luck a name" while you assume my "stupidity" and name calling. 

 

Lol funny stuff.

Is it just me or would I’d rather have Brees than the other 3?

Brees is the best of the bunch but also the oldest I believe.  So it's a very short term fix.

Andrew told us exactly why he is retiring:

'He felt “stuck” in a cycle of rehab. Injury has “taken my joy of this game away.”'

It is NOT Andrew who has let the Colts down.

It is the Colts org, especially Grigson/Pagano. who had let Andrew down.

Without all the injuries and rehab he would still be here for years.

We should be grateful for the years he played here.

He can definitely change his profession. Just like you and I can the proper way. By putting our 2 weeks in or in my case giving enough notice to finish big projects. 

 

If you walk out of a job with no notice you are a quitter.

 

If you quit the job properly because there is a risk to your health then you are a smart individual.  This is t rocket science lol.  

Do your big projects involve literally risking your physical health?

 

No.

 

Stop comparing yourself to a football player.

I disagree. This wasn’t on the Colts, Luck made The decision today, you can tell even Reich was blindsided. No, this one is squarely on Luck. 

 

Anyone got that number to Mayflower trucking? We got a clown who needs moved before midnight out of the state

This looks bad, Andrew.  

The whole timing of it.  

  

Fans aren't going to feel bad for you.  

  

Should've decided months ago. I'm sure you were thinking about it.

Yes.  He was talking retirement to them while they were telling us everything is good to go.

I'd be ok with using our 1st and 2nd to move up for a QB.  Or even take one in 1st AND 2nd, or 2nd and 3rd.  I like Jacoby, but i wouldnt give him a big contract.  He hasnt showed me enuff.

  See how this year goes.  If he looks good, try to do a deal b4 season end.  If not, draft a couple and Kelly can possibly bridge gap.  

On the bright side, this should free up ALOT of $.

 

There is one thing i do feel good about.  That Ballard is working this problem as we speak.

  Ballard was cold-cocked by McDinglefart and came out smelling good.  He'll figure this out.

  Who knows, maybe this will end up being better than working with a beat-up year-after-year Luck.  It does change my view (rearview) of letting Manning go for Luck.

Brissett is a decent QB and may be able to lead the team to success, but he showed in 2017 that he cannot close games and he can't make the money throws that an Andrew or any other elite QB can make.

 

Our team is strong enough to keep us in games, it'll be interesting to see if Brissett can finish close games this year as he hasn't looked too good in training camp and preseason so far.

Mine does. Mine literally involves life and death. So yeah, Luck is a coward and quitter. And crappy teammate.

This is why when people complain that the Colts only won one Super Bowl with Peyton I always said I am glad I got to live to see to them win one because it’s so hard for everything to come together to win a Super Bowl, anything can go wrong and derail the whole thing.

You earned it. By being a complete *.

 

Whether or not Andrew Luck screwed the Colts is for the Indianapolis Colts to decide. And I guarantee you there arent many of them who feel as strongly as you do, because they know what it takes to play a single NFL game and understand his decision.

 

Buddy you couldn't handle the preparations let alone the game.

We are not a playoff team with Jacoby..

 

Not in our division

I don't know why but I feel like this could have a ripple effect beyond just Luck retiring early. I know Ballard's always talked about it being bigger than one guy but I really do hope he, and Reich, are in it for the long haul.

Does anyone know if i'm gonna have any luck canceling a non-refundable airline ticket and hotel reservation in Indy?

Unless you booked through a travel agency, with the insurance, unlikely that you’ll get anything back

Irsay took too long to bring in CB & Reich.  Luck carried us for years saddled by Grison & Pagano.  The guy has taken some serious damage for the Horseshoe.  Finished a game with a lacerated kidney.  He’s a genuine dude.  I hate the timing but the guy has been a warrior for us.  He’s got nothing but love & respect from me.

I just wonder how much more rehabbing and pain he had to go through to be ready?  It must be much more than they are reporting. He definitely had a that's it I'm done with this vibe to him in that presser.  Almost like he got worse news about the injury than he was expecting and just said I can't do it anymore.

Honestly, Luck staying in Indy is likely a very very very bad idea for him and his family. He won’t be able to go anywhere without being harassed by someone somewhere.

Hes not your teammate. Go ask the guys who play what they think. You're opinion is invalid.

But yet is still probably more dangerous than most people’s here.  Luck said it tonight he’s still in pain.  Now pretend you physically hurt to do your job and you didn’t have to do that job to earn a living and that pain had driven the love for your job away.  What would you do?  Just about everyone would walk away.  That’s what Luck did.

 

I get it.  It stinks it hurts and the timing really stinks but I understand it.

It really is sad that people think like this. With thoughts like this and the "fans" that were booing him, I am glad he walked away.

If he’d come out and said that, I would have taken every mean thing I just said about him back. But no, he said he’s been debating this a while.
