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. 

Sure you will have people who will be jerks but most people in Indianapolis don’t live their life around if the starting QB of the Colts is Andrew Luck or not and aren’t going to bother him.

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.

I think the idea is that no matter how much rehab he was doing, there was no progress being made. I just feel like he's sick of having to constantly stress about getting healthy in time to reach a deadline, and he's sick of getting dealing with the injury process in general.

Exactly.  I sensed this about Andrew a long time ago.  Though this is shocking news I can't say that I am that surprised that he called it quits early.  

 

I figured if he was going to retire he would have done it early in training camp, so this was a shocker to me.

I said this way back 5-6 years ago. Andrew was too smart for this game to beat him down. He took an butt wipping. The Colts front office knew about this in the middle of last year. I think they were hoping for another year or a changing of his mind.

I think he wanted to leave last year. Irsay wants to sell tickets. The head coach was probably kept in the dark so he would come here in the first place. Maybe, just maybe, this was the reason the new england coach backed out. This is why I quit watching the game folks. Dont blame Andrew, he was only part of the whole conspiracy going to the top.

No but I don’t know if you remember when Reggie Miller was debating retiring early, then someone burnt his house down. I don’t know if they ever caught that guy or even if it matters but the point is, it’d only take one lunatic that’s obsessed with him or the Colts to do something very bad. 

 

For andrews sake, I hope no one does something stupid or evil. I’m mad at him, but he deserves to move on in peace. And that should be out of this state

Man this is just crushing. I became a Colts fan in 2000 because of Peyton Manning and was loyal ever since. I have no ties to Indianapolis but stayed loyal because I was such a big Luck fan. I just cant see myself rooting for this team anymore especially since I think Jacoby is trash. I wish you guys the best of..... L**k in the coming seasons. Farewell #ColtsNation

Good riddance and good luck.

PS, you seem like you would fit in nicely at PatsNation.com.

Give it a try.

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's far more dangerous.

 

I have a dangerous job. I am a high voltage electrician. More electricians die than almost any other profession. It's actually very common.

 

But being in physical pain isn't apart of my everyday work life. 

 

Apples and oranges.

Irsay talking about being as confused as fans.  Irsay is truly speaking from the heart.  May have gone into a little too much detail however talking about the pro-bowl and what happened from there, hmmm.  was he rambling or just as mystified as all of us right now?  Irsay talking about Andrew Luck leaving a half a billion dollars on the table.  Also hinting on other people coming out of retirement. wow.

Do your big projects involve literally risking your physical health?

 

No.

 

Stop comparing yourself to a football player.

 

Lmao how would you know? 

 

Just because you wanna play the game and assume everything about me, I'll bring you into the light.  I worked for 4 years at an oilfield company where my life was at risk every day. Whether it was pressure or joints or explosions.  I did this because in my area the only way in which you can afford college is to go to the oilfield. I did this while having the highest marks of my entire computer engineer class and also being a college level soccer player who was invited to play at the ODP (Olympic development program). Which I had multiple opportunities to go professional but declined because I had a family early in life.  

 

I quit on none of them and did what was best of me the right way never during season never during the job and always with notice and good graces. I now work as a network engineer for one of the biggest distributors in the world for frac sand and have developed and designed some of the only active micro dish connected automation environments on the planet.  

 

So yea if anyone could say I've been there I'd say it's me. And I was a poor kid from a less than 8000 population town. 

 

Yes Andrew luck is a quitter. I'll stand by it and repeat it. There's a proper time and place to do things and he did not.

I'm shocked that he did it like this and now.  But down the road I had my doubts he would play a long time.  Just never sensed he had a deep passion for the game.  When he was drafted I remember he said.."Well...we'll see how it goes."  That hit me funny.

This is horrendous. We're going to be stuck in purgatory with no shot at any top QBs. OL is finally good, just in time for this. With our luck it'll be back to bad once we actually have another QB. This sets us back a half decade if we're lucky, decades if not. This is the most painful news in Colts history, counting Peyton's retirement.

Build the lines.  Build the D and insert competent qb.  U can win that way.  Teams have fallen in love with top tier star war # qbs.

I’ve always heard that was someone who had a personal issue with Miller and was close to him and it had nothing to do with basketball.

Very possible. Either way, he should really think about that decision

NFL QB is probably at the bottom of the list of most dangerous jobs.  

It’s literally at the bottom of the list for most dangerous NFL positions. With current rules you breath wrong on a qb you just about get thrown out of the league. 

Ive moved on. He comes from a millionaire family and made millions more. I feel nothing for him. He had an opportunity for greatness but in the end left me with no meaningful memories. He’s a regular joe..well a rich regular joe but a regular joe. I’ve got bigger things to worry about than some rich dude crying about how tough his life is. Just glad he didn’t go through the motions this year. At least I don’t have to waste time investing my time in a guy that had one foot out the door. Good luck Andrew. I think you will regret your decision.

Wow. What a surprise. You're a hypocrite as well.

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.

 

Lmao. You are quite funny. Because I call him a quitter I feel strongly? I guess? I mean life is gonna continue and it effects me very little. What does effect me and (I actually agree with you it probably shouldn't) is how much everyone is idolizing this quitter and saying it's ok. For some reason that irks me. Oh well have fun assuming all you want about me. It shows how out of depth you really are.

    • Hall of Fame running back Gale Sayers died yesterday (9/23/20) of complications from dementia. He was 77. It seems that he suffered with dementia for many years.     Most of us never saw him play but those who saw him thought he was a dynamic runner. I read Brian Piccolo: A Short Season many years well before I had an appreciation for football. I enjoyed the book as well as the movie Brian's Song.   Anyone have memories of Gale Sayers?
    • Ehh, I don't really agree.    Herbert went at #6. He wasn't really in play for the Colts, who had #13. And if you do move up and he's not right for you, that's definitely worse than passing on a QB who winds up being pretty good. I don't think a GM should operate from the stance that their favorite QB in the draft is going to become Patrick Mahomes; on average, first round QBs underperform, not overperform. So not addressing QB isn't worse, IMO, not when we're talking about giving up significant assets to get the guy you want.   Love hasn't played yet. Preliminary reports aren't thrilling. We'll see how he turns out, but the Colts still had a reasonable chance to get him, and chose not to make a move. He didn't pass on Love to grab a DT.    And just to repeat myself, we don't know what Herbert and Love will wind up being. I like them both. I'm not heartbroken we didn't draft either of them. Time will tell whether I'm underselling this.   They chose to go with a veteran bridge QB, and see what happens. That has a chance to work for us for the next season or two, and then we'll see whether we have a guy that can take the reins.    Lastly, 3T is super important for our team. It's become critical for any good defense, and we've literally never had game breaker at that position. If Buckner works out for us, that move will be a winner.
    • I don't know about that one... but this was the playoffs of the 2003 season, Manning was at the very beginning of his stretch of dominance over the league. Dungy was also a very conservative head coach, even for 2003. Can't imagine any coach giving these instructions in 2020, but the league has become a lot more progressive in a relatively short period of time.    It was two years later in the playoffs against the Steelers when PM had to shoo the punt team off the field for a 4th down play. We all remember the visual. But I decided to look up the play by play. It was 21-3, Steelers, and that 4th down play was the last play of the 3rd quarter, ball at the Indy 36. It's hard to imagine any coach punting in that situation right now, especially with a QB who just won MVP by throwing 49 TDs the previous season. But Dungy's reflex was to punt, and it took PM, back to back MVP winner, QB of a team that started the season 13-0, to convince Dungy to let the offense go for it. Dungy mouthed his response: "It's on you."    My point is that it wouldn't surprise me to find out that Dungy wasn't a fan of PM having so much control at the line of scrimmage, especially back in 2003/2004, on the road, AFFCG.
