I can't find the video of it but I remember one time penalties and sacks backed us up to like a 3rd and 27 or something like that.

 

Most people would say you are punting on the next down, but somehow I had a feeling that something special was about to happen.

 

Luck dropped a bomb to Hilton for the TD.  

 

It was early in their careers so I can't seem to find the video of it.

I still have NO idea what that little demonstration was for.

I wasn't sure if I wanted to quit my previous job. I told the Director that I had thoughts about quitting. She told me to think it over.

 

During the period of time where I was thinking it over, I kept doing my job. I attended meetings, events, and turned in project reports.

 

Once I was sure that I no longer wanted to work their, I informed the director that I had made up my mind and I provided my notice.

 

Would my previous co-workers say, "What was that little demonstration for? Attending meetings and events, and turning in reports?" Of course not.

 

Similarly, Luck had discussions with Ballard and Reich. They told him to think it over, which all parties have attested to. During that period of time, since he was still a member of the Colts, he was gong to do everything previously scheduled for him as part of his rehab -- as if he was working towards getting back on the field, including throwing sessions, warm ups, etc...

Too soon for me.

im still scratchin my head about it.

iheard Kravitz say he had a PRIVATE conversation with Peyton about the Luck retirement.  He wouldnt give the details , but i'm pretty sure i know what Peyton's stance would be.  

I heard Kravitz say that on JMV but I couldn’t decide what Peyton thought. Did he think it was weak of Luck to walk away that young & close to the start of the season?  Or did he think it was good of Luck because the organization saddled him with Grigson & Pagano & got him slaughtered for 5 seasons?  Which do you think?  Or bits of both?

My favorite is the Superman dive against KC in the playoff comeback.

Why is there a thread about an ex-Colt in the Colts Football Forum?

 

Same reason we still have threads about Peyton Manning in the Colts section... duh.

No video for my favorite Luck story.    But I believe Arians told this story his rookie year.

 

Luck has been drafted,  but is going back and forth between Indy and Stanford so he can finish classes and then graduate.    He's attending rookie mini-camps and doing well.    The coaches were impressed.

 

After this final camp,  the coaches walk Luck out to a car that will take him to the Indy airport.   They give him the biggest chunk of the playbook.    Situational football.    About 2/3rds of the total playbook.    Luck takes it.   The Colts employee drives him to the airport.

 

The assistant coaches, all standing there look at each other.   They know Luck is smart.   They say to each other,  "with that chunk of the playbook,  we won't hear from him for weeks!"     Luck flies home to San Francisco,  and then goes to Stanford.    How long could that all take?   6-8 hours?

 

He sends the coaches a four word text:     "Got it.   What's next?"


I always said the best part of Luck is his mind.    Sorry we didn't see more of it.

The worst part was his snow boarding ability.   I kid.    I love the kid.   Wish him nothing but success.   He will be great at whatever he decides to do

I think Peyton would go outthere on one leg if he could.

 

kinda ironic Luck retired not long after Peyton.

nope, just glad the drama of will he practice, is he injured and they just aren’t saying, is his shoulder still fine, is it a calf or an ankle, Yada, yada yada. Feel me dog? 
 

Luck was certainly a great guy and a heck of a player. He just quit. I’m looking forward to my team playing, not just Luck.

Luck had every right to do what he did but as a fan I dont respect what he did. He led this team thinking he was going to play and everything was ok and retired a couple weeks before the season. I understand he was hurt but what player in the NFL isn't hurt including Qb's and you simply not wanting to play cause you're not 100% get the hell outta here, everyone in the NFL isn't a 100%. Hell T.Y. played the WR position and had 2 high ankle sprains. You hear most Qbs and players say after his retirement say they respect him for his decision but majority say they want to play as long of as they can because they love the game that much.  Luck just never loved the game that much. Luck was a great player and I enjoyed many Sunday's watching him play but he shouldn't be celebrated this much for what he did. He made his money and simply quit. 

 

Rant over.

Definitely the entire comeback against KC. The fumble dive TD was just amazing.

Also, because some people had to % on a thread meant to celebrate a great player....

I may make some people angry with this, but if you are still upset over Luck deciding himself over us, YOU’RE the selfish one. Luck didn’t owe us %, yet all he did for our team, Indy, our state, and our community is massive. If you can’t respect someone retiring for mental health reasons, that’s shameful. The man went through shoulder surgery, concussions, leg rehab, a ruptured kidney where he was pissing blood, broken ribs, depresssion, mental health struggles, etc for our entertainment, and yet some people on here would still boo him. That’s just sad, and I would think that we were better than that.

I guess my expectations might be too high. Idk

Also, I’d bet my left arm that Manning was supportive of Luck’s decision.

Although I respect your opinion, I highly disagree. Playing hurt is a million times less painful than the mental health struggles Luck went through. I’ve been what he’s been through, having to quit football because I sustained so many concussions I still have lasting brain damage from them, and there is nothing that can pull you out of that state except removing yourself from the source of it. People on here are acting like Luck gave up. Luck didn’t give up, he was mentally unable to continue. It’d be like if a guy broke his back; he literally cannot go anymore. If you ever listen to anything I say on this forum, trust me when I say that it is not a quit or stay situation: it is a situation where you CANNOT continue to play.

 

Also, in regards to the money, is it Luck’s fault that entertainers make so much more than we do in today’s society? That sounds more like a cultural issue than one that Luck has control over.

I agree. He has mental health struggles and I'm not saying I hate the guy cause I don't. I also agree that if he wanted to leave and do what's best for him so be it. I just dont like the way he went about it. Retiring 2 weeks before the season starts and letting everyone think everything was fine and a team on SB aspirations and to quit on your team like that. That's my issue. I love what he stands for. He's really a good dude, especially what he did for the whole city of Indiana but my grip is guys that should be celebrated as Colts are the guys who gave it there all and where greats of the team for a long time. Wayne, Marvin, Peyton, Saturday etc.. He's a guy that quit on his team, gm, coach, owner in the start of his prime. I hope he has a great life, I truly do and he has full of happiness but to me he will always be that guy that could of been on of the greats but hung them to early.

Also, to think he wasn't going to go into the NFL with no injuries and some sort of depression he is very naive.  He should of just not entered the league. Almost every player will give you list of injuries and some sort of depression or trial they've had to overcome or face everyday. It's the guys that truly love the game that stick it out and want to play. For example, look at Brees and big Ben. They've been hurt so much in their career and just got hurt and they want to keep playing no matter what. As I previously stated. Luck just never loved the game as much as most players.

Luck was a great talent, very good QB. I agree though, he didn't love the game like Peyton, Brady, Brees, Emmitt Smith, Jerry Rice. Those guys I just named would die on the field if they could before retiring. Brady won't retire IMO until he gets injured somehow or he is just too old to continue. Had Peyton not had those neck surgery's, he would still be playing. He had to retire because of his neck which caused him to lose arm strength. Andrew Luck is today's Barry Sanders. Barry was a great talent/great player but never cared about records and loved other things besides football.

Agree! Michael Irvin was asked about Luck retirement and said he has respect for what he did and then asked if he ever contemplated retirement and said never. He even said he would keep playing to this day if he could that's how much he loved the NFL.

Comparing Michael Irvin to Andrew Luck and the context is life choices? Can't say I would have ever saw that coming.

Fair enough, sad story for all involved I think. Just hope he finds his happiness and stays healthy. Sad that some people on here do seem to hate him.

    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
    • Nothing against you and I like you as a poster but counting Ballard's 2017 season is a stretch. I realize he was the GM that year (1st year) but he didn't have the Coach he wanted and Luck was out for the year. We went 4-12 that year so his record is a bit skewed because of that. Others have posted the same thing about Ballard's record so you are not the only one and I just don't see how anyone can count that season legitimately. I pretty much go by 2018-this year when he hired Frank and his record would be 25-19 counting the playoffs. Is he the best GM in the league, probably not but he is good. He is responsible for drafting Nelson, Leonard, Mack, signing Houston, signing Rivers and trading for Buckner = great work there. Luck just retiring on the team and McDaniels dissing him even made his job that much harder. 
    • I am late to the party but it doesn't matter because I would've been 1-1 anyway. I had the Lions and Washington so it offsets     Here are my Sunday picks/Monday pick: Ravens 17 Steelers 24 Chargers 19 Bills 27 Titans 27 Colts 30 Panthers 20 Vikings 21 Browns 27 Jags 17 Giants 24 Bengals 10 Cards 27 Pats 23 Dolphins 99 Jets 0 (Fluke's original quote) Saints 24 Broncos 13 49ers 17 Rams 30 Chiefs 34 Bucs 24 Bears 17 Packers 27 Seahawks 31 Eagles 17
    • Yes, love the limited stuff from Harris. I really want to see more routes from him, but overall, love what he's doing. I'd love for him to be a long term answer at slot if Campbell moves to Z.    I'm up in the air on specs. I need to see him hit some long ones, as well as some additional clutch kicks. Glasgow, like I said, I just don't expect much from. Doubt he's ever a contributor on D, but if he kills it on ST, I'm happy.    A buddy of mine (a Ball State grad/fan), thinks Pinter develops into a RT, and the Colts will eventually move Smith over to LT (when AC retires), and let Pinter take RT. I don't know about all that, but I do agree Pinter might develop into more than we think.    I think Pittman will develop into a long term and consistent WR for us. I know he's just starting to emerge, but he just has the look. Good/willing blocker, good hands, etc.. He might not be the 50/50 guy I want, but I also think he might be better at in-stride catching than I thought.    JT, I think he'll be fine once he gets acclimated and use to the run blocking scheme. I don't want to diminish his talent, but most RBs should be able to be successful behind our OL, and he's better than most.    Blackmon is the most interesting to me. He's always been a hammer which I love. He's struggled though in coverage in college, and as we saw, got burnt deep a few games ago. Not sure if he's too aggressive forward, or just struggles with coverage and range. I hope it's just aggressiveness. It definitely helped him when they moved him from CB to S in college, but at the same time, Utah ran a ton of man, which we do not. Love most of what I've seen thus far. I just hope it's not a case where teams get film on him, and start testing him deep a lot. We've been fortunate to play some bad Os early that simply don't go deep a bunch. Will be interesting to follow.
