Don't care to see him or that beard again.

Maybe I’m reading this guys tweet incorrectly?    He seems to be saying that Luck retired due to the snow boarding accident.   Couple of points to make....   1. Wasn’t the snowboardin

If he does it likely wouldn't be for the colts...

I'd take that bet, lol. Irsay didn't let him keep that money to watch him win another team a superbowl in the event he un-retired.

I disagree.  I think the money Irsay gave him would be enough for him to stay loyal.   Also, the Colts strong O-line would be enticing.  A strong running game would be nice as well.

When does his contract run out? After 2021?

 

Unless I'm mistaken, he would have a 3-year contract left once he opts to come back from retirement. At least in Gronk's case, the 1 year contract left was frozen the year he retired and he's playing out that year now with the Bucs.

I thought he’d back this year after taking a year off. Could be why Rivers only signed for 1 year.

I just finished season two of Umbrella Academy.  Now when someone says "I heard a rumor..." I try to ignore it as fast as possible.

 

I suggest everyone do the same with this one.

Colts have the rights to Luck, so if he played for another team, they would have to trade for him.

Couple of points to make....
 

1. Wasn’t the snowboarding accident several years ago?


2.  Didn’t the snowboarding accident result in a shoulder injury?

 

3.  Didn’t Luck retire due to some mysterious lower leg injury?
 

If this is all true, and I believe it is, the dots don’t connect.   In other words, this guy was wrong before and there’s no reason — for now — to believe he’d be right this time. 
 

If Luck comes back — great.   If he wants to play elsewhere — fine.  We’d get draft picks.  If he wants to play for the Colts — that’s fine too.   To me Luck coming back is a win-win.  And if not, we move on....

You are reading it incorrectly.  He is saying that he said he was the first to say that Luck's injury (shoulder) was due to a snowboarding accident and everyone laughed at him.  He then says that he said, 3 weeks before Luck retired, that Luck was going to retire.

He'll come back so what... he can find another excuse to quit and pocket a few million more?

He's got plenty of money.   I think the only way he would come back is if he had the itch to play and thought he could win.   Maybe if Rivers and the Colts have a good season the chance at winning would be there.  

Very doubtful that he ever plays again.   I'd give it a 10% chance.

Correct.

 

i don’t think Luck is EVER coming back. Nor do I want him back nor should the team want him back. He left this team high and dry less than10 days before the start of the regular season. If I was an owner or a coach, I wouldn’t want him back unless there were some major stipulations added to his contract. Such as 100 percent reimbursement for all salaries paid from the time he was drafted if he were to retire again too close to the season. Put a cut off date around March 30th. Anything after that, he has to reimburse as stated above. Then and only then would I take him back

So, the question is: can anyone confirm his claims? Surely there's a record of him saying these things when he claims to have said them.

 

If there is, he's proven credible, and we can take his Luck claims seriously.

 

If not, he's just another loud attention you-know-what on the Internet.

Not I.  I don't tweet, facebook, instagram, TikTok or any of that.  I was just breaking it down for NCF who asked if he was reading it incorrectly.

Understood. The player and representation would probably file a grievance at the mere suggestion, given how brazenly it violates the CBA. That kind of stipulation would be completely unprecedented; a player retiring suddenly, close to the start of the season, is not unprecedented. There are no grounds for that kind of stipulation.

 

To be clear, I don't think Luck is ever coming back.

 

If Luck did express a desire to come back, I'd be skeptical about bringing him back and relying on him as a critical part of the team. 

 

If the Colts were to accept him back, I would assume they know certain things about his decision to retire, and what has changed since he made that decision. And they would be confident that those circumstances were resolved entirely.

 

But this is a waste of data, because it's not happening.

Agreed.  On parts

If he decides to come back I am all for keeping rivers around the next couple of Years and  trade Luck for some number one picks and go get a QB. I don’t think I would want him back. Very awkward that would  be with rivers. Just trade Luck and use those picks to find the future.

If I had to guess it'd be snowboarding=Colorado=librul=weed or some other transitive property nonsense.

 

As nonsensical as the left-field post directly before yours about MSNBC/CNN. Lot of that going around.

I want to agree, but he is very good when he plays and that trumps most other things.  If this current team plays as well as most think it will and then Rivers retires after this season, plugging Luck in would keep the train moving.

Eh I’d honestly trade him, for a slew of 1st round picks. Which team has the worst OL in the league? I’d start there haha

I just don't see him coming back. Especially with the climate the world is in right now. He has all the money he needs to live a comfortable life now without doing anything to jeopardize his health.

Just the mere mention of this possibility is pretty divisive in it's way. I don't really see him coming back though. It only made sense to retire when and the way he did if he's truly over getting beat up for a game, a not one more minute kinda thing.

That said, people aren't so easy to peg down and I'd have to imagine that if you had the ability to be top flight athlete and paid like one, there's always going to be that internal dialog about "what the hell am I doing!?", if you're not living up to that.

    • Ryan mainly because the Giants are toothless on offense and Goff would not need to air it out nearly as much to keep up while Ryan is going to fight to keep up production vs the Packers.   Gesicki because Seahawks and RW will score plenty, and Seahawks give up ton of production in the slot. Gage in game 1 had a career game in the slot. Edelman had a career game on SNF. The no name Cowboy "Cedric Wilson" poached CeeDee Lamb production in the slot and got 2 huge TDs. If you play WR/TE in the middle, you are going to get some production vs Seahawks. So, I am playing Gesicki too. The floor is high enough in this matchup. The ceiling, like Cedric Wilson vs CeeDee Lamb, you may have someone get the 20 plus points vs 10 for Lamb though both play the middle area but the floor is still high like I said.   Wagner and K.J.Wright might be good for a few things but they don't have a youth movement on LB yet like the Colts do.
    • His worst ever record in a season is 8-8 and again, that's with Mitch, a QB he found on the roster. At already 3-0, they can go 6-7 the rest of the way and still make the playoffs. Personally, I think 8-8 makes the playoffs in the NFC since they added the number of playoff spots. He still has yet to play the Panthers, Jaguars, Texans, Vikings(twice), and the Lions once more. Again, there would have to be some catastrophe for him to get fired. They would have to finish the season with less than 5 wins for that to happen. I don't see that happening. I think their team actually got slightly better with Foles. There's no way he's on the hot seat.    I only know so much about this team because my wife is a Bears fan. 
    • Please show me where it’s been proven to be false.. then would you like to see cases of people developing unexpected long term conditions as a result of COVID. Let alone the massive spikes in mortality as a secondary effect.   Remind me, do you work in health care? Have you lived this every day for over 6 months? Are you spending every day looking at the bleak wider impact?   No, you’re resorting to cheap reactions and deflections as ever.    There is more to life than football.
    • I stumbled across this break down. MAC is a work in progress but he makes the TE room (with Burton and Doyle), one of the more “well-rounded” ones, in the league.    Most plays are from the Vikings game
