Well, what a couple of days that was! I deliberately stayed off the forum to avoid the initial responses and take time to consider this.  Here is where I stand as of today:   1. The timing o

Long time listener, first time caller.   How much would you pay to be able to walk without terrible pain for the last 50+ years of your life? At what point is it morally repugnant to make su

Was it really necessary to bring this back from the dead to reiterate a view that's been hashed, rehashed, and buried with the fourteen dead horses it ride in on? Lol.

I'm hoping he changes his mind. I'm wondering if he said he needs to sit out for a few weeks of the season and everyone told him no we cant do that again that it's ok for him to play on. And he said alright then adios if that's how it is. Let us hope.

How is he out there, warming up pre-game and ish??? He obviously talked to Jim about it before now. Just a show to sell tickets? 

He didn’t warm up at all tonight.  

 

I am guessing this is a new development.  Like I said my guess is that the doctors told him it’s going to hurt and not get better and there is nothing they can do and Luck just decided he doesn’t want to do that.

I saw this coming but I thought after this year or next. Not now. He didn't seem to have the same fire as he had before the shoulder but I was hoping the success of last year would bring it back. 

 

That being said, I wish Andrew and his family the best. It's been a fun few years. He has to do his best by his family before worrying about the team. The timing stinks but I respect a man taking care of his family. 

 

It's now time for Jacoby to prove he's a franchise QB. Bring it Jacoby! 

 

If I had to guess, Andrew had told the higher ups that he was thinking about this for a while and they told him to dwell on it and to use this time as a deadline of sorts... But that's just a guess.

Sorry. This is a team first, competitive to the end guy. Something is going on here, and we owe it to Luck to wait and hear what it is. He is the last guy to let his team down; there is something else happening that we'll have to hear from the horse's mouth. I fear serious health issues. We'll just have to wait and find out. But to all of those people out there who have been suggesting this guy is anything other than a stand up guy: you're wrong.

I mean, I'm totally shocked, but I also dont blame him.

 

Look at the way the "fans" turn on him in an instant, all for having health problems. Why put yourself thru this if you dont have to?

 

It ain't worth it. Especially if you can do other things with your life. I wish him well, even though I'm very disappointed.

Either the team rallies around Brissett or this decimates the morale in the locker room...

Honestly, they could still rally but I don't see how this doesn't loom over the team and create a pretty gloomy atmosphere this year.

The good thing is JB is very well liked.

As shocking as it is to read that he's retiring, I hate to say that it's not really too shocking when you think about it.

I've been thinking for a while now that his interests outside of football, his personal life/privacy, and his health is more important than his football career. And now it seems like that's definitely the case.

    • I agree with this completely. No one piece of information or datum is definitive, PFF grades included. The grades tell you (reasonably) exactly how a guy played, but they can't possibly provide context to indicate why he played that way.   I do think that you can apply context to contextless PFF grades though. To take your example: you see a guy getting a low PFF grade over the course of a month, or even a season, and you can take it with a pinch of salt because you know he was banged up all month or all year.   For me, I watch every snap of every Colts game every year. The number of full games I watch per season beyond that is probably in the single digits though. I imagine this applies to most fans and most fan bases. PFF watch every snap of every game every year but a lot of people still seem to value their own opinions on players over PFF's. For the reasons you stated, PFF's grades aren't perfect or definitive, but they're a hell of a lot more representative than the average fan's opinion.
    • Well like Ballard said they need to see if Fisher can come back from this injury before the extend him.  Leonard and Smith don’t have that question mark right now.  That’s why I expect their extensions done around the same time Kelly’s was last year where as Fisher will wait.  
    • No doubt.  I'm not saying they won't sign them.  I'm just saying that getting a franchise LT is more important.   You're right, they have to take into account how many years Fisher can play at a high level.  We were so lucky with AC.
    • The Colts reporters seem to believe this move is just to push hot rod and don’t seem to think he’s in real danger of losing his job but camp and pre-season can change things.  
    • Apparently it's a two year deal for Fisher, however the second year can be voided by the colts.
