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

Recommended Posts

If he physically can't play then that's one thing.  If he physically can play then he at least owed the fans this season.

That schtick isn't going to work tonight buddy. I believe with Ballard the Colts will eventually be fine but it's totally understandable for Colts fans to be frustrated tonight.

The Colts' radio network is saying that Luck met with Irsay and told him he's retiring.

But he's standing on the sidelines?????

If he’s quit in this team, he needs escorted from the building...

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. 

He's completely shafting the team and the fans.  

  

He doesn't owe us anything, but we also don't owe him anything either.  

  

The timing of this couldn't have been any worse.  

  

Low blow, imo.

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. 

Agree.  Also I'm not a fan of schefter putting this out while Andrew was still on the field.  That wears me down mentally

Kind of harsh. Doesn’t want to fight to heal every offseason. It’s a shame but come on he’s not a quitter

So tired of waiting with this franchise.  Waiting for them to fix the o-line, waiting for them to replace Pagano, waiting for luck to get healthy.  Honestly I've just about had enough. 

 

Right now I have little enthusiasm for the colts or the NFL.  Sickening.

Thanks Ryan for not putting an o line together and  to see Luck get assaulted every week. Thanks Colts front office for bogus injury updates over the years and not being honest. What a bombshell about retiring with the timing but maybe just had another year long injury. Can't trust front office on his real status. Now if Jacoby could switch Bert Jones number; just does not seem right. So, who are top  college quarterbacks in 20?

Agreed. Tons of respect lost for Andrew Luck. If you’re mulling retirement, get the F out before Camp. And don’t be sitting there telling fans via media interviews that you expect to play week 1. This isn’t on the Colts, this is in Luck. Zero respect right now, none

Exactly..why now.......

....If this is real..he stuck it to the franchise..

 

...but I just have doubts that this is real

Before everyone chastises him, I'm sure this decision, did not come lightly, The injuries that he has had, plus his on going problem, I am sure he did not take lightly. It must have been hard to come to terms with his announcement., being the competitive  player he is.   Please  give the man the benefit of the doubt. He knows his body, and I know that if he could he would play, Now is not the time to throw stones at him, and call him a quitter . Show some compassion . Let him know how much you care. I know he's hurting, and feels bad about it, so show some sympathy , to the guy!  I wish Andrew Luck all well wishes in his endeavors outside of football. I want to thank him for his effort, he has shown, in the past,   We thank you Andrew for effort in trying to bring back the level of excellence we have had in the past. and wish you well in the future.

We won’t have to tank to move up for a QB. We have so much draft capital.

Something always seemed different about this injury, or more specifically the way Luck was going about it.

Obviously, it's not the injury that did him in...but more the mindset he had...like when talking about it to reporters. He just seemed done, even annoyed having to talk about it.

I hope everyone burns his jersey as he leaves town. Lost all respect for him.

No. He is a quitter.    If he didn't want to play,   he could have let the team know months ago.

NFL has it on their page as official. 

 

If this turns out false, someone at ESPN has a ton of explaining to do

Sounds like you are also mentally worn down like our ex QB.

Really hope he enjoys "travelling the world" with his trophy wife.  He should be shunned, and his name removed from all Colts archives.  To heck with him and his advisor (dad).

I bet this post will be proven wrong. 

 

He walked away before the going got tough. That's it lol

 

I don't understand why people idolize these athletes like saints.

He’s coming out of retirement in 2 years then goes to New England..

He couldn’t. He’d have to be released from his contract. It essentially freezes and if he unretires, he’s locked to the Colts unless they release him

    • Supe it's not an angle whatsoever, it's purely the truth.   I am, of course not talking about you, or what you do on this board in terms of evaluating players. I always enjoy hearing your take on players.   I am obviously talking about the people spewing bile on here after the loss to the Raiders, and every other loss for that matter. And a lot of that includes tripe about Jacoby Brissett that just goes way over the top.   We can disagree on Brissett, it's not really a big deal. And I apologize for quoting you in the other thread and giving you the impression I am including you in this. I'm really not. I quoted you because I would rather debate the topic with someone like yourself than get sucked into a flame war with some troll, which has happened to me a time or two. That's all. Me and you can have a somewhat interesting discussion. I always enjoy it.     
    • Nice thread...    There have been some arguments for a while now about the relative value of pass-coverage vs pass-rush. Teams offensively are turning to faster and faster game plans and this affects the pass-rush a ton. You can practically scheme the pass-rush away if you have good enough QB and receivers that get open quickly. The latest advanced analytics seem to favor positions like CB and WR value-wise over long-held champions like EDGE rushers or OTs. I will also take into account your characterization of the rest of the roster(average players as opposed to straight up trash). At some positions the improvement between pro-bowler and average/JAG is higher than at other positions. Those are just part of the considerations that will inform my choise here:   Offense:   1. QB: not controversial take here - most important position of all... he handles the ball and makes a decision that might affect the game pretty much 100% of the snaps. I want the best passer and decisionmaker to run my offense.    2. WR: yep, give me a beast of an X-receiver. Pass-catchers are incredibly important.   3. LT: Yeah, I know, this goes against some of the things I said above, but time and time again we see what a great LT does to an offensive line. Leremy Tunsil is not even that great and he almost single-handedly turned around the HOU OLine. Same with AC last year - we missed him mightily when he was injured to start the year and then turned the line into a great unit. And again - he's not even at the level we are talking here. He still has not had a pro-bowl or all-pro recognition(maybe he gets one this year, he deserves it). But yeah... give me Bakhtiari, give me Armstead, give me Tyron Smith level player... I think this raises the level of the whole O-Line, especially if it's filled with average players at the other positions(rather than horrible ones)   ------------------------------------ Those will be my selections offensively. I think a QB masks a lot of deficiencies and I think he elevates average players and squeezes everything out of most of them. Just look at what Luck used to do with players like Jack Doyle, Donte Moncrief, Eric Ebron, Inman, Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen...    Defense:   4. CB: yep, I want a shut down corner. Like I said earlier, newest research shows pass-coverage and especially on the boundary is paramount. and it affects pass-rush more than pass-rush affects CB play.    5. CB: yep, give me one more... I'm shutting down both sides of the field and hoping this gives additional time to my pass-rush to get there. They will play on island and I will scheme out everything else(i.e. slot receivers and TEs)... if I have to I will double away from them.    6. WILL: I want a sideline to sideline monster to clean up the run game and take on crossing routes in the short-intermediate middle in coverage.     7. EDGE: I still want a player capable of beating his man one-on-one on the line and creating pressure/affecting the pass when my pro-bowl CBs lock down their match ups.    So what do you think? Does it make sense?
