Who knows what diagnosis he's recently gotten or the pain he deals with day to day.... I hope he takes his soon to be born child, beautiful wife and buys a giant chunk of land and lives a long pain free life. It's just a stupid game...

Hard to believe. My son was a LB at MHS and played against him at Stratford HS.

Perhaps I could, but I can say with 100% certainty that Trump Nation could learn a LOT from Mr. Luck.

I listened to his entire presser. It was everything that Trump and the P/CE forum isn't. And as a bonus, he made zero mention of supernatural beings.

Big props to Luck!

Honestly I empathize with Andrew Luck. I suppose he waited until now to retire because he truly wanted to continue playing. I don't think he quit right before the season to hurt the team. At the end of the day his health is what matters more. I wish him the best of luck with whatever he decides to do in the future.

I read where that GM has drafted 3 O-lineman since 2013 before the 7th round. No QB has been hit more than Luck in that time frame.

Some people love the game and love to compete. Others are just blessed with a gift and do it mainly for the money. I don't blame Luck. He hit the lottery, had some serious injuries, made enough money and called it quits. I like QB's that are a little tougher. Brett Favre comes to mind.

1,000's of high school and college players sacrifice their bodies for free, for the love of the game. It is hard for me to wrap my head around a young man walking away from 20+ million a year....to play a game. But it is his life and he should live it how he wants.

He has made over 97 million with the colts. If he wants to retire from football and keep what health he has left, good for him.

If you were the Owner/Gm of the Colts would you call that 97 million spent a bust, or money well spent?

Well he handed Luck 24 mil on the way out, so Im guessing he feels ok with the deal.

That's my take on it as well.

Not sure I would have done the same if it was optional. I dont know enough on the situation to say. They must have a pretty good relationship to fork over that money though.

I don't think anyone should hold anything against Luck, if he can't play then why stay on the team. I guess he could have asked to be put on injured reserve, at least then he would have had at least 8 weeks to think more about it. Maybe he will take a year off and then come back.

Look at it from the other side, the Colts had a Canton bound generational QB, and all they got was a handful of playoff wins.

Luck was a football player. Through and through. Good article on him-

I just can't believe he did that to so many fantasy players!

Good for him! He's smart for what he did. I wouldn't care what a single person thought of me for doing what he did if I were him. And if I were the GM I'd feel like a jackwagon because I was only able to get 4 playoff wins out of an elite QB like him. It was not his fault that the rest of that team was trash.

It did but it didn't. he has been bitten by the injury bug so often the colts have gone "NHL Style" when it came to his injuries. Even this year first it was knee then it was ankle then they switched to "Lower Body" they always answered time of return questions with "should be by week 1" "could be by week 1" "maybe week 1" just because with the types of injury he has suffered (shoulder, knee, calf, ankle) the healing for that takes so long and the rehab they do to get these guys back in shape is rigorous and hard. I totally get how with this new injury nagging him he just is drained. Great player wish him the best but I wouldn't be surprised if you see his name in the hat for a comeback in a couple/few years

read an article where in 4 years he spent almost everyday in and out of the rehab facility, the never ending cycle and body breaking down probably had him clinically depressed, and for sure mentally exhausted and broke down….getting a good offensive was too late

I had nfl game pass last year and watched most of every game last year and I remember watching luck at the end of the season and his face truly looked like he just got arrested and is taking a sad mug shot picture, he kept on grimacing ect...he didn't look too engaged with anything and really just was bad on all his execution in the last playoff game...

For those saying he let his team down because of the timing, how do you explain Luck not participating in camp or preseason? Brissete has been taking reps as the starter. Technically, this is a decent time for him to make up his mind. The colts were already preparing to play another season without Luck to begin with.

He was honest, legitimate, and professional.
Hes probably gotten a lot of advice from former players.
Smart man.. perserving what he has left for his family and future instead of trading it for a few dollars that wont help him deal with the inevitable problems in the future.
