Can't figure out what's so "Sweet Jesus or Dear God" about surmising that it's possible that the state of the team and it's most important position being in flux is figuring into this potential retirement. I suppose we'd have to ask him with the caveat that he'd likely not throw anyone under the bus.
Could be one, or the other or a combination of both- or things we don't know about, but it won't be for the better if this team is without AC this year.
If you have friends or family in Indy, slingbox is a great legal way to watch without a lot of expense (1X cost of the box). If you don't, and like tech stuff, check out Kodi and the sports addons. There are also several websites (not legal) that stream all the games.
I agree. I think he'll come back too.
But I also think our QB situation makes every practice and every game seem more like work than fun. If you're going to lose, have little hope of winning, that's kind of a different place than he has been with PM or Luck. Even when they were injured, there was a light at the end of the tunnel. Every injury or pain becomes magnified when you're cause is hopeless, and he's probably not in a position for doing it all for the money.
I also wouldn't be surprised to see this drag on to where we get a better handle on the QB or roster, if Ballard allows it to drag on that far. Frankly, I'm not sure that it didn't play a part in Luck's decision, thinking how much he would put himself at risk if he thought he had to carry the team.
Being dispassionately objective, what QB wouldn't want to go to the SB having to throw only 7 passes instead of 50? LOL. That current obscure leg injury seemed overblown as to its impact on his decision, but that's another topic.
