Yep.

I think the injuries become mental after a while.

Enjoy retirement Andrew.

Re: Andrew Luck Retires

Unbelievable.

They ruined him. This kid should've been something special. The Colts mismanaged his entire short career by sticking him behind pathetic o-lines.

2 years he returns to the NFL and that's when Drew retires.... maybe.
Yes the Colts screwed the kid up. Their owner is a nut job.

Re: Andrew Luck Retires

Whatever you think of Peyton Manning as a person or player, he did not deserve what Irsay did him with that press conference when the Colts cut him. It has to be brought up cause their owner is terrible and mishandling Luck is only the tip of the iceberg. This all goes back to how he put Manning out the door to begin this era with Luck.

The "I want Super Bowl wins, not Star Wars numbers" quote will never be forgotten. That whole press conference was so bad and him saying that with Peyton standing right next to him the entire time. Here you have the QB who took your losing franchise, and elevated them to a level of respectability and even won a SB, and you tell him his stats are "Star Wars numbers"? Irsay deserved every minute of watching Peyton in Denver uniform make the playoffs and ultimate win a SB in his last year.

Irsay was also quoted saying Luck needed to "toughen it up" after his injuries. He refused to take responsibility by waiting a whole extra year to get rid of Ryan Grigson and Chuck Pagano. Why was Grigson even hired as GM, I will never know. He was a scout in Philly and there were reports that the Eagles office was completely stunned when the Colts took him for GM.

I wish Luck a happy retirement. I enjoyed watching him as a player and wanted to see him become an elite QB. He's a likable guy off the field and I sometimes wonder if he would've had a better career elsewhere without the Colts tanking the whole 2011 season to get him.
