    Please understand that I said Grigson was a terrible GM.

    Also, understand that I said Grigson wasn't the reason Luck retired.

    Luck has been gifted a great OL and serious weapons, yet he still retired.

    His retirement is unknown, therefore we shouldn't rush to judgement as to why he retired.

    Grigson is an afterthought.

    It's not unknown. He said himself that the injuries took a toll and he wasn't enjoying football any more. He also couldn't live the life he wanted to being beat up all the time.

    He pulled a Jake Locker and his spirit was broken by the injury bug.

    Can't say I blame him.. he's made plenty of money and age 29 he can retire healthy enough to live life.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see him come out of retirement next season.

    I have had a handful of surgeries and procedures and nothing came close to the labrum tear. The time before the surgery was awful. The time after the surgery was awful. 3 months of twice a week PT had me at 80% mobility. That is as far as they took it in PT, after that it was a full year after the surgery before I was back to 100% mobility. The strength loss was drastic and took another year to get back to even with my right shoulder. Granted, Luck had the best care possible and trainers etc. But it was still nasty, which is why it took so long to recover. After going through that, then getting injured again, I can fully understand. He has too much money to continue to sacrifice his body.

    So Luck really only played 3 years post Manning. Letting Manning go must sting a little more now

    They were fortunate to get Luck after letting Manning go.. (even if he wasn't as great as hyped up to be, he's damn good) But... It would be some wild luck if they get 3 in a row right...

    Lucks retirement could really set the Colts back when it looked like they had "the guy" for the next 10+ years. Crazy

    Unless they just go full tank mode, I dont think they will be picking a top QB. Their roster is much better than it was the last time Luck was out and went 2-14.

    Either way, there isnt a "Luck" type prospect this year (thankfully they cant get Lawrence this year lol)

    Even if they were somehow able to grab the top prospect... How many teams try that every few years and still haven't found a good QB?

    How many teams have been lucky enough to pick the right QB 3 times in a row? ( I guess Luck wasn't really the QB everyone thought he was going to be though..mostly because of injury)
