    To me its telling since he retired that Manning seems more like a Bronco than a Colt even though he played most of his career in Indianapolis.
    That's because Irsay is a POS who managed to disrespect one of the all time great QBs.

    Physical toll on Andrew Luck through 6 NFL seasons:
    Torn cartilage in 2 ribs
    partially torn abdomen
    a lacerated kidney that left him peeing blood
    at least 1 concussion
    a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder
    and this mysterious calf/ankle issue that led to this
    I don't blame Luck for wanting to get out, don't care how close to the start of the season it is. The people "counting on him" aren't the ones living his life and dealing with the injuries he's had. Or dealing with an asshole like Irsay.

    But, I wouldn't mind it at all if Elway and Manning lured him to a better situation in Denver.

    I could see him taking a year off and seeing how he feels next year. His perspective might change. And Im sure hed like to get away from that drunk idiot Irsay.

    I'm lucky based upon where I live to know a few ex NFL players on a first name basis, and I don't begrudge any of them retiring early. It takes a toll on them, mentally and physically.

    I love football, I think it is the ultimate team sport, and that there are great life lessons that it teaches young men. However, it extracts a price, especially at the college and pro level.

    My son is starting out as third string right guard in college, and part of me thinks "good, stay there for four years and come out whole".

    Yeah I think he just is done with being injured. Has money to retire and has a family.

    Here is what I think is funny, ironic or just plain shitty. Colts got Manning then he got hurt so they could draft Luck. Now they will be going in with Brisset and if he gets injured, well could be terrible. Then draft Trevor Lawrence.

    That said they still have a decent team without Luck so not sure if they can be as shitty as they were when they landed Luck

    They can draft Tua. Trevor Lawrence will be drafted in two years. 2019 is Tank for Tua. 2020 is Tank for Trevor.

    Lets see whos the next big money starting qb to hit the road is? If your making 20-30 million a year its pretty easy to walk away after a few years. This could actually become the norm for qbs on crappy teams.

    After listening to him speak I really feel if he starts feeling better that he will come back.

    He clearly needs and wants a break.

    I think Luck will be back too.

    I however don't think you will start seeing this more, I think Luck is a unique case.

    I think it could go either way going forward. We had a couple of surprise retirements in San Francisco over the past few years for similar injury reasons and concerns about future health.

    LB Patrick Willis retired at age 29. 7 time Pro Bowler. Let 49er fans shocked.

    Then up and coming LB Chris Borland retired after only 1 season at age 23. He secured a starting spot in the NFL as a rookie, then just retired. It was shocking. He was supposed to replace Willis.

    It is each players own choice. I am sure it weighs on them about leaving teammates hanging. Tough call.

    I think he is just hedging his bet incase Luck has a change of heart.

    The saddest part in all of the Andrew Luck retirement story is that the parody twitter account - CAPT. Andrew Luck will also now be retired. He writes tweets as if Luck is a Civil War Army Captain from the 1860s. He had a great run. 539,000 followers.

    https://twitter.com/CaptAndrewLuck?r...Ctwgr%5Eauthor

    the final tweet:

    @CaptAndrewLuck
    Dearest mother —
    The quill has never felt more heavy. I have made the decision to holster my sidearm permanently. I shall battle no more. The decision is difficult, but, as the hogs taught me, I must be true to myself. I am coming home to care for you and the farm.
    — Andrew



    There are even legit NEWS stories today about the parody twitter account also retiring......
