    Gronk retiring is a bigger story than this in my opinion. He does more to help his team than Luck ever has. Good luck for Luck and Colts can suck it.

    Luck didn't have the same options as Brady because his brain wasn't as big.

    Imagine paying and sitting for a preseason game and getting a text from your friend that your 29 year old QB has informed the team that he is retiring. You will react in a human way. Your reaction may not be towards the player but the circumstance. It will be extremely hard to gather your thoughts right there and put things in proper perspective. It is different when you don't shell out your hard earned money for season tickets and just follows the team, but those who do and don't necessary make a lot, this will be painful and I can understand their reaction.

    Depends on which famous rocker's guitar comes up for auction.

    Must be nice to piss away daddy's money.

    Fivehead's body was breaking down, it was time to move on for the Dolts.

    Throughout Luck's career the common thread was him taking big hits due to a sh*tty offensive line.

    Can't believe they have to roll with Brissette.

    2012: Colts get knocked of playoffs in 24-9 loss (Ravens who won Super Bowl)

    2013: Colts get knocked out of playoffs in 43-22 loss (vs Patriots)

    2014: Colts get knocked out of playoffs in 45-7 loss (vs Patriots who won Super Bowl)

    2018: Colts get knocked out of playoffs in 31-13 loss. (vs Chiefs)

    Every time they made it to face one of the real contenders they proved they didn't belong there.

    Btw, I think there were always rumors McDaniels was unsure about Luck's status. I doubt he knew he'd retire, but I think he was weary of walking into a situation with an injury prone QB

    Maybe a spot for Hoyer? That would be cruel though.

    Luck certainly didn't want to end up like the great Earl Campbell.......I don't blame him.

    Never disliked Luck as a player. Colts are a cesspool though. Are they cursed or what? Gotta love the bad karma coming their way. Crying, distasteful fan base and ownership breathing in what they sow. I’m enjoying it to it’s fullest.

    They boo a bad half of football. If luck were the patriot QB and retired like this he would absolutely be hated.

    feel bad for Luck as clearly the injuries took a mental toll on him.


    but LOL at the Colts...the deflategate curse lives on

    Ehh they’ll go 9-7 or 10-6 like they do every year.

    I’m down on the Texans this year as well because they still have a putrid O-line. And the Jags could be anything this year honestly.

    Eh, Gronk retiring seemed expected throughout the year. His body was breaking down and he wasnt exactly the same player he was previously. Still was able to come up with big plays when needed. but wasnt the threat he was previously.

    Luck is a total surprise. He is 29years old and a quarterback and had a really solid year last year.

    Makes what Brady is doing more impressive. Guy has outlasted peyton manning AND his replacement.

    I don't think he ever really fully recovered from that shoulder injury.

    Wow. Good luck to Jacoby Brissett in Indy. The job is now his to lose.

    Brady has given more than enough to the Patriots and fans. If he quit in the middle of a real game let alone a preseason one I'd give him the benefit of the doubt......and I guess you missed the video posted of him being booed and called out by name

    Frank Reich just went from the next Sean McVay genius to being fired by his crack head owner in a year, of course he's despondent.
    That guy's meal ticket just died.

    In the cut throat corporate world, rule number 1 is never interrupt a rival when he/she/they are so intent on proving their incompetence.
