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

Having stepped away for a week or so and looking at this more objectively.

 

If Luck scammed the Colts:

 

first by lying about the condition of his shoulder during the summer of 2017, so he could miss a season instead of play in it.

 

Then lie about needing more rehab, as an excuse to be away from the Colts and instead travel throughout Europe.

 

Then play in 2018 to justify his previous lies.

 

Then make up a phony leg injury to further drag on the phoniness he started in late 2017.

 

Then throughout the 2 year scam, struggle to speak about it without stammering and getting nervous in front of cameras because it was tough to keep his nonsense story straight.

 

Things wouldn't look a whole lot different than they do.

With all that are you just saying it doesn’t matter if he lied or is telling the truth, we would end up in the same place?

So this is your idea of looking at this more objectively......, interesting.

No it doesn't matter.  I haven't thought about Luck in at least a week.  I happened to think about it again and since I no longer have the emotional attachment of wanting to think of Luck as being the wholesome straight up arrow I was told he was, I saw things a little differently this morning.

Ahh.  It was more a cathartic post.  That makes sense.   I thought you were taking me somewhere fun but it ended anticlimacticly if that is a word.  Hahaha

Would anyone like to take a guess on how long it will take for "Andrew Luck" to disappear from this board? Lol

Yeah.  Its been a week since I thought about him and was surprised to find the thread still high on page 1.

I heard Luck is using Mayflower to move out of Indian-No-Place:lol:

 

I beg to differ the Mayflowers are reserved for moving teams trying to escape a squalid stadium & rat infested City who try to steal a whole team that is my definition of no place I'd want to be . 

In fact its hilarious how petty some still appear to be I guess stealing the Colts Baltimoe Lombardi isn't enough still beating a dead horse . 

 

I'm positive when compared The Colts Lombardi versus The Ravens Lombardi sitting side by side the the Colts will always be number  1  which is the funniest thing of all IMHO the Indianapolis Colts have what they could'nt get in there prior home a real fan base willing to work with the team  . While the jilted bride moved on to actually steal someone elses team those in glass houses should not throw stones .:hat::colts:

I was shocked when watching the game & I heard the news . I read many of the posts in this thread I'll not judge your responses . 

 

We are  Colts Fans - FANATICS some more than others we some of us live & breath the Blue '

 

I lived on the West Side when my Colts decided to come to Indy walked to the games at the Hoosier Dome many tough seasons Captain ComeBack & our Cardiac Colts & then 18 followed up by Andrew Luck who I always felt from day 1 was the next coming of  the Greatest INDIANAPOLIS QUARTERBACK TO EVER LACE UP FOR SUNDAY .

 

 Luck was Big & Strong & did'nt run like a penguin this dude is IMHO just the  guy we needed not frail like RG3 easy choice made RYAN GRIGSON  executive of the year . But this former O -lineman failed to protect the franchise , While 12's first 3 years he looked like Superman running & flying thru the air making plays winning games by shear force of will he was MENTALLY strong but those early years were more harmful than any realized the constant abuse with a GM & HC who failed this our number 1 pick the face of the franchise was rode hard & put up wet  .

 

Out ward appearance is he is big & strong whats the problem ? 

 

Mental Toughness  the thing that helped  Peyton Manning have a second bite at the apple it for me once again reminds me 18 was successful in 2 different Cities when given the protection & running game while the Colts failed the Broncos won a Lombardi the Colts set up this  failure &' 

 

The BOO's IMO are deserved & should be reserved for RYAN GRIGSON the worst GM in NFL history .

 

Plus IMO  the Team you new there was a problem yet we the fans were kept in the  dark it was always a physical issue the mental thing came outta no wheres & led up to what I can only describe as a debacle & LOS . 

 

Honestly if he was'nt Mentally disturbed before by his painful experience here in Indy before he sure is now IMO for him accepting failure is not easy he failed his own expectations he was never a quitter ever in life he came to a decision as a man that was what was best for him & his future football is a brutal game that has lasting effects that we fans will never experience & maybe want to refresh there memory in regards to the truly offensive lines that were supposed to protect 12. 

 

We watched 18 & 12 take way to much abuse as a Colt QB luckily enough we now have Ballard he has worked very hard he has turned this team around the Colts defense - offensive line & running game are now strengths instead of weakness '

 

I thought this year was gonna be big with Andrew Luck at the helm I will miss him . I don't possess crystal balls so I can't see the future good or bad  ,

 

I Still Believe in the Blue & more than ever I Believe In Ballard & Reich that loss should have been a WIN in L.A so next man up '

 

Happy Trails 12 please forgive my friends we love you & hope nothing but the best for you & your young family life is short my brother family first big daddy , :thmup::hat:

    • No need to lock.  I didn't mean that. I didn't know that there were people that didn't know this story.   Baltimore fans were heart broken but, these days, everything has worked out for the best.   Thankfully   Although there is still disagreement on who has rights to the franchise history before the move.  But, even that is fading   Time heals
    • When Frank has had a good quarterback, he wins and makes the playoffs.   The two years he didn’t make the playoffs were the two Luck years where things went to heck at the last minute.   And one of those two years we looked like a playoff team until JB got hurt.  From there, things went downhill.   This year, we never lost two games in a row.  When we lost a game, we won the next week.  A very good sign of a well coached team.   We had one bad loss, week one in a season where Covid wiped out the entire off-season and all pre-season games.   Ballard speaks glowingly of Frank.   He knows how hard it is to find a good coach.   I’m not sure why you think we’re not a well coach team, but for some strange reason you do. 
    • So you don’t really agree with most?
    • Whether I've heard of them or not is irrelevant. What's relevant is that our coaches can lead our team to a SB win. You can bash me because of my lack of knowledge all you want. The real question is, do you trust Ballard to hire coaches over 31 other teams? Do you trust Frank Reich's word that these guys are good? You are being positive and trustworthy just for the sake of it too. I don't trust anyone for us until they prove they can do their job at the highest level, in the NFL and on the Indianapolis Colts.
    • Joe Tiller coached future HOFer Drew Brees at Purdue.  He's the father of "basketball on grass."  One of the most brilliant offensive coaches of his generation with an outstanding coaching tree.    I say this with no disrespect, but the fact that you haven't heard of someone is pretty meaningless.    Your responses regarding the listing of several coaching legends, together with your reactions toward the several up-and-coming NFL coaches that have been named in this thread, has established you're pretty much only familiar with a few household names that virtually every casual NFL fan is familiar with.   If that was the criterion by which all coaching decisions and hires were made, no coach would ever move up the ranks and have the chance to become successful.    Sirianni was pretty much a nobody before the Colts hired him.  He's still only 39 years old.  Now he's the HC of the Eagles.  Eberflus had never coordinated a defense before he got to Indy.  I'm guessing you had no idea who Gannon was until he was hired away.    In sum, there's no reason to be overly negative about things just for the sake of being overly negative.  It may be more rewarding to expand your horizons and learn more about the game and how many great coaches permeate every level of it.  Some coaches that you perceive as "bad" because of their tenure with a certain team go on to do great things in a different environment.  Same can be said for coaches that you've never heard of (which is seemingly a pretty big list).  That's the nature of the business.
