Irsay leaves door open for Luck return


Recommended Posts

I imagine this has probably been discussed, but I haven't seen it in all the pages I've read.

 

Irsay seems to have left the door open for Luck to come back in two ways:

 

1. He didn't make Luck give the singing bonus money back.

 

2. He basically SAID that Luck could come back.

 

I sure didn't realize the implication of 1. at the time and I didn't hear 2. from the press conference.

Here's a a couple of articles about this:

It’s been mentioned several times in the mega merge thread

Who knows what will happen, but this isn't the end of the story, not by a long shot.  It's going to be a rumor a week - Luck's returning in October... in November.  Jerry Jones is sending three #1s for Luck.

 

Wait until the first QB on a contending team goes down.

Was it just me or did Chris Ballard look especially annoyed when Irsay was talking about a possible Luck return.  

 

I noticed that very same thing and mentioned it to my friend today.

 

Ballard's reaction was priceless.  He raised his eyebrows in disbelief.  A much-needed laugh on a very emotional evening.

Actually Luck could come back the way Irsay left things open lmao , It sounds funny but true.

 

I was just talking about that today with a buddy lol.  Nothing would shock me at all after yesterday......  I wouldn’t be shocked if he came back but if he did it would probably be next year and I’m sure Luck would notify Irsay and Ballard as soon as it popped back in his mind if it did.  I don’t see the Colts waiting around though, if JB doesn’t tear it up then they need to find a top young prospect ASAP.  Fortunately we know Ballard is a heck of a talent evaluator.

 

Now I just don’t know how the heck the Colts are going to do, the season just needs to start already.  My expectations lowered drastically though as to not seriously be disappointed :( BUT on the flip side I’ll be ecstatic if they do well and JB looks like a top 12-15 QB.

Ok, you got me Stephen.  I should've refrained from saying nothing would shock me :lol:.  Because that sure as heck would! 

 

You could've stepped it up a notch by saying Super Bowl MVP as well!

What if the  Colts make it to the playoffs or better in the next couple years? Some folks should acknowledge Brissett is no slouch. 6'4" 230 lbs. with speed and very strong arm. Give him the chance with a good team and we just might see what we hope to see.

I would love for him to return but I think he's done.  His reasons are very good and permanent and he's doing it at a time in his life when people start thinking more about the future.  (Around the birth of your first child.)

 

He's got a bunch of other stuff that keeps him busy too.  A lot of players just have football.  Luck has more than that.  

 

I mean when someone retires at this age in their prime people are always going to leave the door open for a comeback.  But I think when you listen to the reason's Luck gave you realize that those things are just not going to go away.  Football is still football and you are still likely to get hurt a lot doing it.

    • It's a pipe dream. It's not happening.
    • There’s a very easy pick for the Jaguars to make but let’s see if they make it lol.
    • Crap, sorry.   with the 129th pick, the Seahawks select:   Anthony Schwartz, WR, Auburn   If that doesn’t make Russell Wilson happy, then 7@€# him!   @crazycolt1and the Jags are aim the clock.
    • Watson started this recent public trade thing by stating that the organization has flawed hiring practices.  And I think he never debunked the idea that the current owner was a lot like his father, simply because he is his son.   Its not really about the next season or even the team's won loss record over the next three years.  Its bigger than that.  I think it would be smarter to not accommodate whiners, and in a legal manner, not set the precedent of accommodating someone who conducts detrimental actions that undermines the new coach and the authority structure of the organization.   If you accommodate Watson, you set the precedent that all whiners need to be accommodated or else you end up singling some out for disparate treatment.  This shows what a cancer players like Watson are to an entire organization.    And, I would think a player like that has limited trade value, despite the rumors.  I would  simply move on from him....forget he even exists...would be the less time consuming and smarter move.  If he wants to sit out, fine, but I'm drafting this spring with the idea that he's going to try to put me at a disadvantage and wait until after FA and the draft before he tells me he wont play next year.   There is some root of the problem that has yet to be revealed.   If its about making bad personnel decisions, resulting in a losing record, I get that....but the HC, OBrien who was responsible for those moves was fired months ago.  Seems like Watson and Watt are still holding some kind of grudge over something, or simply launching their marketing brand by grandstanding.   If I were the GM, I'd just ignore Watson until he apologized for those statements instead of honoring his wishes, and then if the team struggles, show to the whole world what people like that can do to a team, blame the teams failure's over a whiner sitting out the season too arrogant and stubborn to apologize for something he should not have said in the first place.
