I don't walk pain free. I wake up hurting every day and I can't do some things. I'm pretty young too. I'll bet a lot of guys and gals on here HURT. Every day. We get depressed about it too at times.

 

But we get up and work. We don't check out at 29. Do you open and pray that we all walk pain free one day?

 

It's called LIFE.

I do pray you are pain free. I tore every muscles in my rotator cuff over a decade ago and kept working. It eventually healed itself without an operation and I put up with arthritis. But you and I aren’t playing NFL level football. Apples and Oranges...

Fans out there burning his jersey are a bit pathetic.

Burning Jersey is the new trendy fad to do.  Personally I think it’s stupid.  You are going to sure show that guy by burning something you spent money on.  Basically you are burning your own money...

I have a very good friend that was huge on the Bachelor and Bachelors in Paradise.  In fact his first name begins with our 3rd string QB.  I am staring a CBD reality show type company with him.

 

One thing that reality stars are taught to do, and I have heard this straight from my buddy's mouth after 5 beers, is to use those words...and to fake cry and show you are vulnerable, as much as possible.

 

THAT IS ONE OF THE main reasons I don't believe a lot of what Luck says.  He uses those words.  {Process.  Vulnerable.  Journey.  He fakes emotion.

 

Ok, this is a new level of ridiculous from you.

 

Your posts just keep getting more and more outrageous.

 

And again, this is why people take personal shots at you, because you boast about personal stuff on a public forum... "I'm starting a company with my famous friend that was on TV"... Dude, get over yourself.  No one cares.  :groan:

I realize that many of you may not notice this, but Luck uses the words "journey' and 'process' a ton.  As in all of the time.

Did we really see any tears yesterday?  I didn't.  I saw faux tears like I see on the Bachelor every week and that my bro tells me they ARE TAUGHT TO DO.

 

 

He gives this awwwww shucks giggly I am so wonderful attitude?

 

And he is at the surface a good guy.

 

But deep down? He thinks of one person.  Himself.

 

Hence why he quit 2 weeks before a season starts.

 

Stop being fooled.

 

You watch waaaaaaaaaaayyyyy too much tv....

Blame is squarely on Luck for several of the injuries.  he got hurt snow boarding, kidney injury was basically his fault, made a bad move.  ankle injury was also on him.  total dumpster fires dont win that many games  

 

Unless Andrew Luck or Peyton Manning is the quarterback. Then go to crap when they get hurt, which is their fault :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

Believe me I understand I've been in chronic pain for 6 years and I just found out what was wrong with me last month because I have a torn psoas muscle there's nothing they can do about it. So I deal with chronic pain but I have to go to work everyday take care of my family yes depression comes along with this but I take my medication I go to my counselor but I still have to go to work everyday. I don't have a choice I run a small business. That being said he has the best medical care money can buy play professional sports must be unbelievably grueling that that's what he's paid hundreds of millions of dollars to do so. I think quitting is a sign of weakness perseverance would be a sign of strength

Especially when you have 50 something other players depending on you.

 

And a fanbase.

 

And a franchise.

I made some scathing remarks about Andrew last night.   I was drinking and caught off guard.    I wish him nothing but the best.    He made a choice to turn down millions of dollars .     Only he knows what his body is going through.    I wish he would have made the decision in February instead of late August.   But it is what it is.    The kid gave this team everything he had.    We are all fans,   we love the team.   He had internal organs lacerated.    His experience is much different than ours.   Thank you for your service young man.

Boom.  Bingo.  Nailed it.

 

We all have issues.

 

This guy GOT PAID $25 M a year to play. 

 

 

On a good team.

 

His teammates depended on him.

If at 29 you could’ve checked out so that you didn’t wake up in pain everyday, you would’ve though, right? 

 

Sit down. 

Not like that I wouldn't have.  I would have given my employers and co workers ample time to replace me and prepare for work after me. 

 

Especially if we were two weeks from a 5 month campaign in which I am a key cog. I would notify my employers that this is it. I'll get them through this and then I'm done.

 

BTW, this whole 'hes so loaded he can do it, you would if you could' thing isn't very endearing to the common fan or the common man. And youre really not doing Luck any favors with that attitude.

That is all.

Wish you had explained that. I’m 65 years old. I’ve never heard of him or that kind of music.  I thought you wanted to compare going to a concert to playing an NFL game.  That appears to be how you and others think????

This is laughable. You are naive to think you would continue on in those circumstances. Not to mention the risk of further injury.

 

youre only ever 1 hit away from a life altering injury in the nfl  Not to mention the money he left on the table. Nothing weak about his decision. Especially when he must’ve known all these people like you would be throwing this ridiculous shade at him 

 

Once again, sit down.

I live in S Cal.  One of my best friends is a reality TV star.

 

We are starting a CBD based tv show with a public stock as the main focus.

 

Stock will bananas once this hits.

 

A CBD stock I had went up 2000% last week.

 

CBD is the where it is.

You’ve lost me. You,  Cannibus, and a tv show, and an NFL QB retiring, but you are one tough Superhuman.   Yeah, sure. That’s all related...

I did the same thing.

 

About 4 years ago I tore my right rotator cuff doing cable flies. Didn't want to have surgery because I couldn't work out.  Bowl.  Play tennis.  Hockey etc.\


I kept working out even with the bad shoulder.  Might have missed 4 days.

 

And when I say I tore it?  I mean the shoulder slipped out of joint constantly.  Actually made a clicking noise.  The doctor heard the noise and sent me right away to the ER for an MRI.  I said F it.

 

Constant pain.  I had to move the shoulder up and down just to get it back in place.

 

I kept going.

Wasn't paid a dime.

Me too, shifting gears 1000 times a day making city deliveries.  Neither of us is playing NFL Football.  You make ridiculous comments. I could see the Colts now- you playing QB, taking the snap, putting your arm back in place as you scrambled, then throwing a 90 yard on the money TD pass.  Super Bowl Champs for sure!!!

 

what’s scary, is that you see a connection....

I have had two of my kids have to quit sports because of their bodies betraying them via internal injuries others can’t see or understand.  It messes with their heads, especially at the high school level, where they appear healthy as a horse, and parents gossip that there’s nothing wrong with them.

 

i didn’t see the warmup. All over ESPN and the NFL channel today tho, hosts were saying he came in and performed wonderfully on Saturday, and then told Irsay Monday he was done. I’m guessing there’s after effects beyond “ouchies”.

 Not if he can’t outmaneuver NFL players. Next you’d be screaming he wasn’t putting out max effort.  Kid couldn’t win with this crowd of SuperHumans.

This was last week.  Tell me he looks hurt here.

Oh you're right. He's out there dodging machine gun fire and running in to burning buildings. Oh that's right, those are real jobs that are far more dangerous and make a fraction of what Luck makes.

At least it’s not the 2017 roster!!!!!  I had high hopes, and I’m disappointed.  I’m old- I’ve been a Colts fan since the mid 1950s.  I’m used to disappointment.  My argument on this thread is, tho- the disappointment comes from injuries caused by playing against huge fast strong guys, and not from being quitters.  Ballard has built a roster of strong characters.  It might take an extra couple of years, but they’ll get there.  Even with Andrew, they were probably one or two years away....   injuries waylay teams every year.  Only One wins the Title.

 I can still play full court basketball against teenagers, too.  None of this is related to the thread. Especially that you like whatever that music or your cannibus movie is. What does that have to do with an injured QB retiring because he can’t outplay the NFL???

If you were a public fireman with a bad ankle, wouldn't it be irresponsible to try to rescue people from burning buildings? You'd drop them or fall down and then TWO are endangered.  Luck is a QB.  His job is to avoid getting busted up by NFL players.  This isnt one if your movies.  He appears to believe hes too hurt to play. That's real.  Hes not a Superhero.  (Last time I saw Superman was in 1963 on a black and white TV, by the way)
