Yeah. I had already spent a lot of time in 2017 and some of 2018 wondering if he would even play again. So I had sort of already dealt with the idea of him not being the Colts QB.
Don't get me wrong...the retirement was still a bit of a shock, given how it happened. But it didn't much to get over it.
Of course back then I also thought they would draft a QB at some point.
But for me, I mostly think of 2012-14 when I think of Luck. That was an incredible time to be a Colts fan and I was lucky enough to be at a point in my life when I could watch all of it, often in-person at LOS.
Wasn’t Andrew Luck’s father an NFL QB? He wasn’t exactly surprised by the responsibilities of the job then. There’s a reason good QB are paid so well. Luck didn’t return that money when he quit, either. These rationalizations are just bizarre.
