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.

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

I just lost a ton of respect for that dude if you don't want to play anymore retire in the offseason early that way the colts have options what a jerk.

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

Agreed.

get over yourself!

Why should he? Luck has played the fans and this team for fools for a month. Take your high horse elsewhere. What Luck just did to this team, regardless of reason, is the lowest of the low. I put this on the same level of the Josh McDaniels bull crap

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

 

Lol kinda harsh?  Reality really stings I guess.

 

Someone who goes half way into the prep for the season and says na I'm good, I'd say is a quitter lol.  Literally the definition is someone who quits. 

 

But hey it's whatever I guess you can spin it however you'd like.

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. 

 

Luck doesn't owe the fans anything. No athlete does.

 

He should do what's best for him and his family and live the life he wants. 

 

And if he isn't all in on football I would rather get this over with and move on as a Colts fan.

Some of you should be embarrassed by your responses.

 

There is more to life than Football and Luck owes you nothing.

 

He gave this franchise his best every chance he could and put this organization in positions it had no right to be in. I wish him the best, a happy life, a good health. Thanks, Andrew.

Agreed.  It’s not Luck’s fault he got hurt.  

 

I hate that Andrew Luck is retiring but this is still a game.

Luck has been radio silent for a couple weeks.  It’s starting to seem like he told Irsay, CB, & Reich he was thinking about it.   Reich probably said we need an answer by the end of the 3rd preseason game.  Luck chose to quit.  Mind blowing.

Kelly once his suspension is over.  Not sure what they do for the first two weeks because I don’t think Walker can play in the NFL.

I think Jacoby will be fine. I also think this is why you saw us not trade Jacoby. Irsay was right the other year, Luck’s issues were between his ears all along

I think you’re right. And looking at it myself, I’ve spent way too much time and even money thinking and worrying about this team and football in general. I guess it’s not really that important in the grand scheme of things...

Watch Luck come back and play for the Chargers next season!

Again, he CANNOT unretire and simply play for another team. Not unless the Colts release him and they wouldn’t because of the cap hit

Right I don’t question that Jacoby is the starter I was responding to who is the backup going forward.

Sounds real...Smoke

Coach Frank did say they'd need an answer on Andrew's availability by the end of the 3rd pre-season week and that obviously is tonight

    • That's possible, and sounds familiar. So how many plays might that happen on in a given game, and how many players are affected by it? Ultimately, what kind of impact could it have on a player grade if PFF throws out 5-10 plays a game?   Also, if a player was nursing a left leg injury, and used a different technique than usual to try to mitigate that injury, in turn taking a loss on a few plays, PFF grades them negatively. Which is fine. But that might result in a player having a month of lower grading than usual, with PFF not acknowledging the injury in their grading. They publish those lower grades, and fans/media say 'this player had a bad month at the end of last season, he's not a hot free agent.' Team X says 'he's outstanding when he's healthy, and he battled through injury, let's give him a huge contract,' and the response is 'PFF says he's not that good, that's a bad contract.'    Nothing wrong with PFF's grade, he did have a bad month. But they have a blind spot to context in their raw grading. And people who consume their grades have a tendency to quote them as if they are definitive. That's my overall point about their grading, and why it's not as valuable to me as it seems to be to others.
    • The media picked up the Fisher news yesterday when they had the film session with Ballard.  Ballard said they want to do a long term deal once Fisher proves he can come back from his injury.  Don’t look for anything soon.  Honestly I expect Leonard and Smith extensions before the season starts and Fisher at some point in the season if he comes back.  If they can’t get one done in season it wouldn’t shock me to see the Colts tag him and then do one if he recovers.  
    • Of course they were drafted to be 3 down lineman, so their ability to run 20-30 yards or more sideline to sideline to fill gaps and make plays may prove vital numerous times per game..
    • I point to it because it keeps happening. And now Sharp's breakdown makes it clear that it's not just in my mind. The Colts are near the bottom in multiple categories. (But again, it's not a market/popularity thing. In fact, some of the teams that have been really bad for a long time are near the top, suggesting it's kind of the opposite.)   To structured scheduling, I think you could get a week of all division matchups. I believe they've done it at times in the past, usually toward the end of the season (especially after 2009). But I do think you undersell the difficulty of shared venues with other events. The teams/admins that own those venues want to host as many events as possible, outside of the 8-12 football games they have every year. That's another 40 weekends they can have a convention, concert, whatever.   Not sure what you mean about flex scheduling. They're not flexing games between days, just times. (Right? Did that change and I missed it?) And there are teams that have solo stadiums, but shared parking (like the Ravens/Orioles, and that caused an issue with the 2013 opener), or other weird little exceptions that the schedule makers have to account for. Late December games in Buffalo, early September games in Florida, etc., and how often visiting teams are subjecting to those potential extremes, should be factored in. There's a lot.   But they could do a Rivalry Week every year. I think one week could be done. Ravens/Steelers, Packers/Bears, Giants/Cowboys, Pats/Jets, etc. I don't really think the Colts have a division rivalry, but I guess it would be the Texans?    As for AZ, I'm actually in SoCal. I just didn't have the bandwidth to type a response last night. They added some good players, whether they can still perform at a high level is questionable. I think Watt is still good. Green, depends on Kyler Murray, which is kind of the only thing that matters with AZ right now, whether he can step up.
    • I would assume we wouldn't re-sign or extend until the end of the season when he will be a FA, correct?
