Luck Retires/ The timing of it all... (merge)

Booing is how a crowd shows displeasure, it's not a direct attack on Luck himself. Granted, I think that Luck just unseated Paul George as the most unpopular guy in Indy. 

 

 I'm pretty upset at how he handled this. I'm irritated at the situation too. Had I been in LOS tonight, I would've booed too. The timing is awful, especially now the season is pretty much over for the Colts 2 weeks before it begins. 

 

Over how? There are 52 other guys who would completely disagree...

I for one, doesn't care what any media jack does. I learned as a high school kid back in the 70's they talk up a small select handful of teams and ridicule and berate the rest, it's what they get paid to do. Andrew Luck did not want to play anymore, I think that's obvious. How does a mild calf strain linger for 8 months, then the story starts changing. Oh well, I want to thank Luck for some great Colt moments, especially that playoff come back against the Chiefs that is timeless. That fumble he picked up and dove into the endzone. I don't know who the next Colt qb will be, I'm not sold on Brissett. But, maybe this is why Reich said he wanted to be a top 5 rushing team this year. This defense can be top 5.

Good.  The bandwagon was getting too full anyway!  haha

 

But seriously.  This sucks.  Like really sucks.

 

And the way it all went down tonight in the middle of a game was just a gut-punch...  :tvsmash:

Yep and we’ll leave it at that.

 

time to rally up the troops, we gotta start over now

All I can say is I told you so.

 

Not trying to be an ***, but i told you so and i told you so. 

 

And I told you so.

 

Any normal QB getting $25 M a year would suck it up and play.  I told you his heart wasn't in it.  

 

You all called me an *.  Almost all of you.

 

What you say now?

Could have been the NFL front office. They get a fax or a call stating Hey Andrew Luck is retiring as of right now. We will have press conference tomorrow. 

 

That then goes out to the media. Schefter tweets said info out.  This is the bad side of the social media world we live in today. Its only going get worse I am afraid. 

I wonder how fast that story travelled around the stands as the game was going on ?

And of those 52 guys, theres one guy on defense who is a generational talent like Luck was. 

 

We just went from Super Bowl contenders to maaaaaaybe winning the division. Can we win games? Sure. Will we beat teams like KC or NE? Not a chance.

Now that most people have vented, maybe it's time to move forward, and really think about solving the problem of our future QB for the near future , with our team being developed. 

 

That could take years

Do you not understand the difference between a wrong and right way to do things? Integrity?  Trust me I'm far from mad... I'm good with moving on and letting these guys go to work with Brissett. 

This has nothing to do with integrity.  He is paid to break news when he hears not when it’s convent for the Colts or Andrew Luck.  ESPN pays him what they do because they value having this kind of news first.  Had he gotten the news and choose to sit on it that would violate his integrity.

Well I hope ESPN is proud of how tonight unfolded in Indy.  :grumpy2:

Kelly reminds me of a better version of Jim Harbaugh

I didn't say it did.  Was just posting the odds for anyone interested.  

I know you didn’t    

   Makes me think about the 2016 Princeton Community High School Girls Basketball team 

       In 2015 the Tigers won the IHSAA 3A Title and the 2016 team went undefeated and won multiple in season tournaments and featured the State Career scoring Leader In Jackie Young but got upset in Sectionals

Nope.

 

I'm an athlete.

 

I play any sport unless I'm in in bed with a 105 degree fever.

 

I bowled a 750 series and couldnt tie my shoes because my back hurt so bad.  And I didnt get paid a dime. I did it because I love to compete.

 

Luck does not. Period.

 

His heart has not been in it since 2 years ago.

 

To quit on your team....2 weeks before the season?  Over an injury that no one can even tell he is hurt from?

 

Extremely disappointing. And just goes to show that all his talk about the team? Total nonsense.

 

If he cared about the team he would play out the year and then retire.

 

To do this now?  Boo the heck out of him.  He showed his true colors.

 

Loser.

Ok,

 

gonna put on the conspiracy theory hat for a moment solely for thinking out loud. 

 

i just  watch the Q and A and Luck said that he had been thinking about it a long time. What if he’d confided in Ballard and they had talked early this spring about such a thing and that could be a factor as to why Ballard didn’t go fully in and blow thru all that cap money in FA?

 

doubtful but something to ponder

Mark it down...the worst thing about tonight was that the news leaked and that Colts fans booed Luck off the field.

Ballard called it out, Leonard called it out, Luck admitted it made him sad. Be angry all you want...but that's not going to be a good look going forward.

Tonight's fan reaction was an embaressment for the entire Colt's organization.  I see Jim moving HIS team in the not to distant future, can't blame him, the blame falls on this selfish fan base.

I feel ya. And hour ago, I was right there with ya. And I still agree with some of that. But still, let’s hold off a bit on rubbing people’s faces in your advanced wisdoms just a bit ? There will be plenty for that in the coming days.

Meh, they were deserved

So I guess Indy fans aren't all that classy after all, eh?  They boo a man for retiring after getting his body parts handed to him.

 

There is just a lot of emotion pouring out right not without rational thought.  People will probably look back at some of their posts and wish they could take back those words.  Hopefully everyone will have a softer thought process in a few days.

 

Folks have already given up on the season though we still have a very young and capable team.   If  Reich plays his cards right he could rally his troops around this adversity and use it as motivation to show the league how this team is better than one person - CB's mantra since taking over.  This could be a perfect storm for us.

I don’t see it as them booing cause he was retiring. as I see it, they were booing and rightfully so after being led along a bridge made of full on lies for the past month and then some. Andrew himself said early last week that he was excited and was expecting to play in week 1. He even said that his love of the game was back....

 

the ironic thing about all this is that Luck got hurt snowboarding. Which if I’m not mistaken is also what happened when the shoulder injury occurred right? If so,  it’s big injuries were self inflicted, away from football.

    • Yeah, for one game.  Pinter was that bad.  Of any O-linenan the Colts actually went into the season with as a starter, Pinter might be the worst Colts O-lineman of the past 15-20 years.  Dude was tossed around like a rag doll.   The official investigation is still ongoing as to whether Matt Ryan fell off the cliff or was pushed off the cliff by Pinter and Pryor.    
    • After Pinter nearly ended Matt Ryan's life in 4 games, Smith was moved to RG for the 2022 Denver game - the 12-9 game for the ages.  Ballard pulled the plug on Smith at RG five minutes later, so I wouldn't expect it again.  
    • It wasn't a great season (great would be making the Finals) but I would classify it as a very good one, one reason why is, we overachieved. Making the Final 4 is a very good accomplishment and winning 47 games to stay out of the playin scenario is pretty respectable. We also won a Game 7 at NY in the Semi's which is almost impossible to do no matter who they have out there. They did have Brunson and Divincenzo for that Game 7 for most of the game. Brunson had to leave because of a broken hand late in the 3rd but by then we were up big anyway.    Even though we got swept by Boston, it didn't even really feel like a sweep. We lost both home games without Haliburton by only 3 points and gave away Game 1 losing in OT and that was at Boston. They really only kicked our butt in Game 2.    All in all, we just lost to a slightly better team who has been in the Conference Finals for many years - so their experience in closing games was better.    We need to add 1 more piece and it needs to be someone that just focuses on being physical in the paint defensively and wants to Rebound more than anything. Turner is more of a stretch Center that has a score first mentality, he is a great shot blocker but isn't physical enough when guys come into the paint.   There are 5 levels to basketball: Level 1 - Just making the Playoffs (above average) Level 2 - Winning a Playoff series (good) Level 3 - Winning 2 Playoff series = making the Conference Finals (very good) Level 4 - Winning 3 Playoff series = Winning the Conference (great) Level 5 - Being a World Champion   -We reached Level 3   I won't be a sore loser so I will congratulate @NFLUpand the other Boston fans for winning the East. They are just better as of now.
    • I'm sorry I misstated that it was Saturday that moved him back, IIRC Saturday had stated that Smith would be staying at RT and they were moving Raimann to LT and that's what I am remembering. Still never stated it was a long term plan, I even said it was Reich grasping at straws to try and fix the O-line.   It's the simple argument of someone stating that something never happened, when it had happened. Now you're somehow trying to argue that while trying to put words in my mouth. I never said it was a long term thing. YOU and I are on the same page and the same opinion that he should remain a RT and shouldn't be changed to RG
    • Smith had a career year when he was in there last year on a bad knee.
