Did he mention how his "lower leg" feels?

Probably still sore from all that snow boarding

Here’s my fantasy scenario:  Week 10 and the Colts are in the hunt for the division.  They’re playing solid D and the running game is strong.  They look like a sure SB contender. 
 

Then tragedy strikes, Jacoby is injured and out for the year.  
 

The guys on the team convince Andrew to come back and “manage” the games for them. The team isn’t on his shoulders, but everyone thinks they can win the SB with him steering the ship.

 

Hey, a guy can dream, right!

That’d be a nightmare. How can you say it’d be a dream for Brissett to be injured

You go through countless surgeries and hours of rehab and tell me if the money is worth it

I’ve been thru three courteously of Uncle Sam and the Army, yet I’m not a millionaire. If I was playing a game and getting hurt for millions, yeah I can see your point. But half a billion dollars over 3 more years... yeah I’d stuck it out

Any scenario that brings Andrew back is a dream.

Been through several, thanks to nearly 30 years of service.  Didn't make nearly that much.

Camaraderie.

 

No offense, just thought you'd want to know.

 

Anyway, we know Luck has plenty of fuel in the tank, HE knows he has plenty in the tank, if he's hanging around the team it sounds like he's been bit by the football bug and seeing how much time Brissett has in the pocket it wouldn't take much of a push to get him to sign back on.

Comroddery

Words should be spelled as they sound!

Nope.  But, it does make the boo-boos manageable.

 I think organ rupture fits outside of the category of "boo-boo".

  For the sake of my sanity, I have to assume he’s done, but if  things were right for him to come back (he wants to and we get trade partners for Brissett), I’d do it in a heartbeat. Adding a deadly long passing game to our current team and adding an influx of new talent in the draft, takes this team to new levels.

I would love to see Andrew being part of the team in the future. No, not as QB. The man said, and looks, like he is done. However, I love our former players being part of the team, be it a coach, a scout, or a liaison. 

 

I thing this year would be too soon, just from the distraction aspect. 

 

Love what you brought to this franchise, Andrew. You will always be appreciated by a great deal of Colts fans.

It’s great to see him hanging out with Jacoby! For those of you that don’t like seeing him, ignore this post. Go take your daily dose of your real life bitter pill. Andrew Luck is the man and any way he wants to be connected with our great franchise, I say you are always invited in!

Let me start by saying thank you for your service. We all owe you a debt of gratitude. With that being said, we dont know the pain Andrew was going through to judge his "boo boos" as you called them. What I do think is Andrew has other interests outside of football. Just viewing from the outside, id say he enjoys traveling especially to Europe, Soccer, architect, and of course reading. Not saying he doesnt love football, but I think he would rather enjoy his other hobbies without having to worry about his health.

First off I want to say I am glad he looks well and looks to be enjoying his retirement. I also want to say he is still one of my favorite all-time Colts but I did not like the way he retired, it was the timing of it. Here is an interesting question, what if we go on a huge winning streak and JB proves to be a perfect fit for this team, would you guys want Luck back then? I mean we just won at KC with JB. Luck is the better QB, we all know that but if we end up something like 11-5, win the South and win a playoff game it would be a bad Look to kick JB to the curve.

If he comes back, let him be 4th string behind Kelly, right now, Luck can’t even sniff Brissett’s jock strap.

Spot on.  And, thanks to the largess of his former employer- he can do so without a care.

Andrew Luck loves football. It was evident the way he played last year. He was joyful when the Colts won, and joyful even when they lost. He was just happy to be playing football again.

 

Recently, the pain/rehab process sucked the joy out of football, and he was back to being unable to play football.

 

But he still loves football, and he loves his (ex)teammates even more so. I read another article that he still watches the Colts games and texts players after each game.

 

I don't think he comes back to the NFL, but I do think he still wants his teammates, coaches, GM, and ownership to know that he deeply cares for the organization.

 

BTW, he's looking kinda jacked!!!

I think he might even if its not for the Colts if a team that had a good line and good Offense overall and were contenders all they need is a QB I bet he would jump at that.

I LOVE seeing Andrew so happy and looks to be in tremendous shape! He looks like a completely different guy then the one we saw at his retirement press conference. Happy for 12!!

You never know.

Andrew would still be a young QB if he takes the whole year to heal up fully.

The only way Luck comes back to football is if his wife gives him the blessing after the baby get settled in & acclimated.

He'll be back one day playing somewhere in the league IMO.

 That’s fine I just hope not with the Colts.

Honestly, I would think twice about re-signing him.  Can't chance he might leave again. 

 

That being said, why still harbor such resentment for someone who has done so much for this team?  Just because he reached a breaking point you don't think you would have reached?  

 

I'm glad he looks happy.

I like Andrew a lot, I’m still a huge fan of him and I can’t stand those who think it was ok to boo him off the field. With that said I’m fully on the brissett train and I hope he is our qb for a long time to come.

Great to see Andrew seems healthy and happy.  I personally don't think He will ever play football again.  This is just an example of why I think we have the best owner in the league, once a Colt, always a Colt, your welcome to visit anytime.

This season isn’t about him.  The team has moved on and forging their own identity.  We are now the Colts not “Andrew Luck and the Colts“.  No longer a one man show...this team just upset the team led by the latest one man show.   I hope Luck doesn’t become a distraction and take away from this team’s shine.  He quit and the team needs to be able to continue to move on without him.  They are actually pretty good as they are and the season is in front of them.

Totally agree but not sure how he could be a distraction?  These are grown men, professional football players.  I'm quite sure if you polled the players, you would get a %100 positive they were all happy to see him.

Wishing for Jacoby to get hurt isn't cool. Jacoby has dreams too and seems like a good dude. Luck is an oddball. He looks perfectly satisfied that he has zero legacy and will only be remembered for how he retired. Manning and the other greats basically had to be dragged away from football.

Agreed. His wife tells him what to do, and Luck agrees, just like his wife told him to retire.

    • I don't know if this has been discussed anywhere else on this forum but regarding Kelly and others, Reich and Ballard are always harping on competition and position battles to build a stronger team. It seems to me the 2 weakest areas on this team are the 2 they haven't allowed any competition, qb and kicker. Just an observation. I can't complain about being 6-6, I thought we'd go 11-5 or 10-6, just couldn't get it done in key moments of some games(the qb and kicker really let us down at times). It's not over yet though, if we can win out we still have a chance at the post season.
    • It was definitely not a good story ending for the underdogs, or a triumphant tale like Rudy, that's for darn sure..... All kids should have a similar experience though lol... It's a welcome to reality moment.    Finding tape on guys is much much easier that it used to be. I'm definitely no expert though. I'm just someone that prefers stats and film to watching a bunch of brainless TV shows lol.  It's more of something to do around the draft/FA period when there's not football to watch. To me, the more you know, the more interesting the season is. Also the more realistic you are about some guys.
    • To get this back on track. The more I read and hear from so called experts. It would not be shocking that Ballard just continues to build around JB and draft a QB in like round 3-4. You hear Florio say that the Colts are happy and moving forward with JB. Then you see these colts.com post these stats about the offense and JB particularly.    Colts Offense   Fourth in the NFL and second in the AFC in rushing yards (139 per game)   Tied for 10th in the NFL in fewest sacks allowed (24)   Ninth in the NFL in sack percentage allowed (6.14)   Fifth in the NFL in first downs per game (22.2)   Ninth in the NFL in third down conversion percentage (44.23)   Third in the NFL in 3rd-and-short [less than four yards] conversion percentage (72.9)   Fifth in the NFL in 3rd-and-10-plus conversion percentage (26.7)   Seventh in the NFL in fourth down conversion percentage (62.5)   Tied for fifth in the NFL in fourth downs converted (10)   Tied for eighth in the NFL in red zone touchdown scoring percentage (63.64)   Seventh in the NFL in average time of possession (31:26)   Tied for third in the NFL in touchdowns off 10-play drives (13)   Tied for fourth in the NFL in 10-play drives (26)   Second in the NFL in average number of plays on scoring drives (9.00)   Tied for third in the NFL in red zone touchdowns (28)   Tied for third in the NFL in players recording three or more receiving touchdowns (4)   10th in the NFL in PFF offensive rating (75.8)   10th in the NFL in PFF pass blocking rating (74.4)   Second in the NFL in PFF run blocking rating (82.6)   Quarterback Jacoby Brissett   Eighth in the AFC in completion percentage (64.3)   Tied for sixth in the AFC in passing touchdowns (16)   Fifth in the AFC in touchdown percentage (4.9)   Tied for sixth in the AFC in fewest interceptions (6)   Sixth in the AFC in interception percentage (1.8)   Sixth in the AFC in passer rating (93.2)   Sixth in the AFC in third down passer rating (88.7)   Tied for first in the NFL in third-and-one rushing conversion percentage (100)   Tied for fifth in the NFL in rushing touchdowns among quarterbacks (3)   Tied for sixth in the NFL in red zone passing touchdowns (14)   Tied for sixth in the NFL in passing touchdowns within 10-yard line (10)   10th in the NFL among qualified quarterbacks in fumbling grade (62.6)   Seventh in the NFL in undesigned QB scrambles (25)*   Eighth in the NFL in adjusted completion percentage (76.3)*   Tied for fourth in the NFL in fewest interceptions under pressure (1)*   Third in the NFL in completion percentage in clean pocket (75.0)*   Tied for 10th in the NFL in fewest interceptions in clean pocket (5)*   Third in the NFL in adjusted completion percentage in clean pocket (83.0)*   10th in the NFL in passer rating in clean pocket (107.5)*   Fifth in the NFL in play action completion percentage difference (7.0)*   Tied for fourth in the NFL in play action passing touchdowns (7)*   Tied for seventh in the NFL in fewest play action interceptions (1)*   Ninth in the NFL in play action completion percentage (69.3)*   Eighth in the NFL in play action passer rating (110.5)*   Tied for eighth in the NFL in fewest non-play action interceptions (5)*   Third in the NFL in average time in pocket (3.01 seconds)*   Fifth in the NFL in average time to run/scramble (5.61 seconds)*   First in the NFL in fewest percentage of dropbacks with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (36.7)*   Tied for sixth in the NFL in completion percentage with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (75.0)*   Ninth in the NFL in passer rating with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (102.9)*   First in the NFL in dropbacks with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (63.3)*   10th in the NFL in completion percentage with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (58.2)*   Tied for seventh in the NFL in fewest interceptions with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (3)*
    • While I agree he got a bit of a raw deal, and agree he probably works well with FR, I think he's a bit of fool's gold built on one rare year. He'd be an upgrade over JB for sure in FR's system, but I'd rather go young and get a guy to grow long term with. 
    • Yeah, the hooded evil genius just needs to retire and go away lol. It's just unfair to the rest of the league.    Shan gets it now, but I think they'll have a little late fall from grace and end up a 5 in the NFC. The way the schedule plays out, I can see Seattle taking their division.
