  1. 1. Is Andrew going to be in the Ring of Honor



Recommended Posts

Curious on the thoughts of the fans now that we've had a few days to reflect.   I think he is more than deserving.   Jim Harbaugh is up there.

I really hope Mr. Irsay gives the fans the opportunity to give Andrew the send off he deserves

I have to say no. I mean he played some really great ball while he was here. Enough the join the likes of Manning, Wayne, Harrison, Freeney, Unitas, and other in the ring? 

 

No. Sorry, but for me it’s a hard no.

Irsay seems to love him so he will probably end up going up there.  

 

Right now he's the guy who farted on his way out of the elevator.

Wrong time to have this as a poll but he will. Marshall Faulk is in and he didnt do as much as luck did for the team

Harbaugh didn’t quit on his team 2 weeks before the season.  Like I said, Luck will get up there,  it not for several years

I’ve honestly never agreed with him being in there, either. 

 

I think tenure should play one of, if not THE largest role in getting in. It gives emphasis to great seasons versus great seasons over the long haul.

Nope, there should be no way. I'm still pretty mad about I'm coming along pretty good and the public cone drill that he did with efficiency. Sorry

I like Marshall Faulk and Jim Harbaugh but they are there for one good reason because this was a basketball town and this team was horrible until those guys showed up.

Eric Dickerson?  Chris Hinton?  Both great players.   Neither had the impact Andrew did

He needs to do that way way before any ring of honor thing.  

  

I'm talking in the next couple weeks.  

Maybe the home opener.  

Idk.  

  

All in know is the Colts really screwed this up.

I'm going to say yes because to qualify for the ring of honor you just have to have played for the Colts and sold tickets.    

 

Luck did that.  

  

Irsay will agree.  

  

I don't see Luck as an all time great Colt though. But he would have been had he played a full career.

I voted yes. His retirement was abrupt and retiring 2 weeks before the season starts stings. It rubs some the wrong way, I get it. I am not happy about it. Having said that he was 53-33 as a starter and won 4 playoff games, got us to an AFC Title Game with really no O.Line or running game. Jim Harbaugh is in, so no way Andrew doesn't make it in. Andrew was a better player compared to Harbaugh.

On the merits of accomplishment, yes... I believe he deserves to be up there.

 

I'm just not sure he wants to be.

 

And quite honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Andrew quietly asks Jimmy Irsay to NOT extend him that honor. 

 

I could be wrong.... but right now its pretty clear that Andrew Luck wants to get as far away from football as he can.... and he may not want to come back for accolades or any other reason.

Fair enough.  

Idk what the parameters are.  

  

Seems like it's just Irsay trying to do something nice for guys he likes.

He'll make the Ring of Honor.  But not the Hall of Fame.

I agree. He didn't play long enough to be a Hall of Famer and he didn't win any SB's. I believe he belongs in the Colts Ring of Honor though. He wasn't Peyton or Unitas obviously but IMO he was very good/borderline great some could argue.

Meh, Luck screwed this up. Luck was the one throwing balls before the game he announces his retirement, Luck ran the cone drills, Luck told people he would be the starter week 1. Colts aren’t perfect but this whole things rests on the shoulders of one Andrew Luck

Eugene Daniel should be in.    I'm guessing a large number of posters have no idea who that is

I think Bob Sanders belongs and he was always injured. Reason why I think Bob belongs is, it was obvious we were a different team with him out there. Our D was much better with him. He also won DPOY in 2007 and without him I do not think we win the SB in 2006.

Unitas isn’t in the Ring, but I think you have to put Luck in.

Agreed. He deserves to go in there before Luck for sure. Namely due to the Super Bowl but also do to his work off the field

Didn't Unitas choose not to be? I remember reading something that said he only wanted to be a part of Baltimore and wanted nothing to do with Indianapolis. That was a long time ago.

If the Colts knew mid week, it should have been announced sooner.  

They did the fans and Luck a disservice.  

  

Now let's get back on topic.

If they knew. It sounds like they didn’t know until Friday at the earliest

 

either way, back to the topic.

 

does he deserve to be there, yes. Should he be there anytime soon, no. Not until this cools down, you know, in 5-7 years

That season was magical and he gutted out every inch of the field.  I’m glad he’s in that ring of honor.   

 

Id like Daniels too.   Every year it seemed  they tried to replace him with a younger corner and he wouldn’t have it.  Another gutsy colt.

At that time , that was what Unitas wanted. Currently, he is in a special section of the Raven’s Ring of Honor , with the other Baltimore Colt Hall of Famers. For some reason , Ted Hendricks is not included. I also vote for Mike “ Mad Dog “ Curtis , for the pro football HOF. 

 

Luck has to be put in the Indy Colts Ring of Honor. He is like Barry Sanders or Gayle Sayres, whose careers ended early. Great players though.

Peyton Manning have the greatest impact on this team. So what great impact did luck have on this team be on with Peyton started. I'm not saying you wasn't a great quarterback but there's no way doing in the Ring of Honor playing five and a half years and not winning any titles

    • Yeah I had him at #4, I liked TY, Funchess, and Campbell better going into the season. I just put Pascal 4th because I love his work ethic and his hands are decent. I liked him better than Cain or Rogers hence the #4.
    • But my point is...even if he could build around an average QB...why should he? For starters, no GM is good enough to build a consistent Super Bowl team without a legit QB. Dorsey was pretty damn good in KC...and those teams were talented...yet they won 1 playoff game in 4-5 years.   But if Ballard is truly a top 5 GM...then that's even more reason to shoot for a legit franchise QB...not settle on an average QB. A top 5 GM, a franchise QB and top tier coaching is the stuff of dynasties...or at the very least...multiple rings in a 5-6 year span. Why you intentionally put yourself at a disadvantage in one area...when you have clear advantages in other areas? Just seems like you are robbing Peter to pay Paul.   I mean...is he going to just stop being a good GM or just stop adding talent to the roster because they used resources on a QB? I have always thought this "great roster vs. great QB" debate was a false choice (sort of like FA vs. the draft). Why not have both? Sure there are opportunity costs and financial logistics involved in finding and keeping a top tier QB...but a savvy GM as good as Ballard is purported to be...should be able to overcome that...especially early on in that QB's contract...and especially when he's sitting on $100M in cap space.   We all got a taste of what an improving Ballard team with a top tier QB could look like last year...that's the direction I want to see this team take. 
    • I’ll admit that I didn’t think as highly of Pascal in the preseason as I do now, but I remember thinking he was a lock to make the roster because of how highly the coaches, specifically the WR coach, spoke of him around cut down time. But yeah, he’s definitely more than what I thought he was before now.
    • If the season ended today they would b picking round 17th.  There r possibly 8 teams ahead of them that could b looking at a qb. They will have to trade up to  most likely  get the guy they covet. Chargers Dolphins Raiders Jags Tampa Denver  Carolina and Bengals. There will b some coaching changes and we all know the coach wants to bring in his own guy. I know it sounds stupid but Dak maybe on a short leash.  He bet on himself and it appears to have blown up in his face. Say a Lincoln Riley goes to Dallas next year.  He will want his own guy. Should make for an  interesting draft
    • Going into the season there were some that thought Pascal wouldn't make the roster. I had him as a #4, he is good enough to be a #3 IMO.
