Favorite Luck moments/videos/passes

Recommended Posts

My favorite is that his drama crap is done with. That was a lot of drama for 2-3 years. Moving on.

The throw to Moncrief in the right corner of the end zone, against the Bengals.

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.

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.

My favorite?  When he played us all with that little endzone drill just before he quit.

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

Game winning TD run against the Lions in his rookie year.

Wasn't that actually a run, then pass to Avery?

You're right. I stand corrected about the play, but still one of my favorites.

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...

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?

Why is there a thread about an ex-Colt in the Colts Football Forum? Doesn’t this belong in the NFL General forum along with topics such as the “Ex-Colt Nate Hairston” thread? Just wondering when the break-away will fully be made... going down memory lane this soon doesn’t help.

Superman dive vs the Chiefs in a playoff win, his run and flip to Avery for the win against the Lions as time expired, his pass to Reggie for the win vs the Packers.

That wasn't a Luck run....   he flipped the ball to Avery who ran it in with Luck right behind him.

 

Still a great play!

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.

Sorry.   Didn't mean to give you a hard time.    I had not yet scrolled down when I responded.

 

Honestly,  it's one of my favorite Luck moments as well.....

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.
