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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

He kind of just kicked this whole team in the seeds.

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.

Nope. He’s a quitter. Plain and simple

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

    • Apparently it's a two year deal for Fisher, however the second year can be voided by the colts.
    • Age and health would be the argument for Smith and Leonard right now.  It’s not all about position.
    • It is my understanding the Colts grade every player on every pay.  Their has to be a method.  It was my understanding, i don't KNOW, that more teams than not subscribe to PFF, for their own reasons. Perhaps they too snark at their numbers.    The story i recently read/heard about a fumble recovery for a touchdown turned one DE's weekly grade from the 60's to near 90, well, that is very concerning if true.  The best way to see if someone is any good was back when i watched every Colts play in super slow-mo, sometimes frame by frame to see what really happened. Unfortunately i couldn't compliment that with all-22.  AC looked BAD for his 1st 3 seasons in pass-pro, and Andrew was terrible with timing and accuracy in the short game. Based on Harbaugh's pre-draft hype, and others of course "not since Elway," that part of his game disgusted me.  PFF can't reflect how much benefit or damage is done by the overall effectiveness of those around you, or good or bad coaching. Ras isn't everything but is a very solid place to start.
    • Nate only missed 1 kick in the Divisional round loss against the Patriots, it was a what would've been a then career long 54 yarder when he was rushed on to the field to attempt it as time was expiring due to the Chargers having burned all their timeouts. Had he made that kick, it would've only tied the game, not given San Diego the lead or win. He converted all 3 of his extra point attempts in that game.   He was brutal in the 2009 Divisional round loss to the Jets, he had only missed 3 kicks all season and missed 3 in that game alone, although one of them was a  57 yard attempt that would've tied his career long. He had already missed a 36 yarder and that Bolts were up 7-0 when Norv trotted him out to attempt that long one at the end of the half, and that miss combined with the earlier one seemed to scramble his eggs. Later in the game while down by 10, he badly missed a 40 yard attempt and although the Chargers got another touchdown, they ended up losing by 3.    He missed when he hit the upright from 48 yards out in the 2007 Divisional round victory at Indy and in the only AFCCG he played in, Kaeding accounted for all 12 of the Chargers' points by going 4 for 4 against the undefeated Patriots in the snow flurries at Foxboro.
    • You're probably right.  But a franchise LT is the more important position.  More than RT, and even an All Pro LB.   I'm not saying he'll sacrifice either of them in order to sign Fisher long term.  But I think that once they see that Fisher can play, they'll want to wrap him up long term.  He won't be cheap either.   I think it was on one of the podcast they pointed out where all of the LTs for the playoff teams were drafted.  Getting one that works out past the first round is pretty rare.  And we probably won't even have a first rounder next year.
