"It's taken my joy of this game away", he said.

"I've been stuck in this process", Luck said. "I haven't been able to live the life I wanted to live". Whether or not anyone realizes it or wants to talk about it, the Colts fans that booed Andrew Luck did not actually care about their quarterback as a person. He was in a dark place mentally when he tried to play through things before and he said he vowed that if he ever got into that situation again, he would not do it. The awareness of player health will continue to be a more and more discussed subject.

Luck walks away from football in the prime years of his career. "I boiled it simply down to the fact that I liked throwing the ball to my friends, and I loved throwing the ball to TY Hilton". That's almost $25 million that he may have to pay back to not play football.

He led the Colts to the playoffs four seasons, compiling a 4-4 record in that span.

He said Israel's chief of staff was meeting with senior officers and forces were on high alert near the Syrian frontier. Direct clashes between Israel and Iranian forces have been rare.

His legacy at Stanford is long. Luck took part in only three days of training camp with limited participation. The Colts are a Super Bowl contender, coming off an 11-win season with one of the best offensive lines in the National Football League and a stout young defense. "It hurt", he said when asked about the reaction. Actually, it was the Big Game my senior year when [Luck] ran for like a 65-yard gain and ran somebody over. He'd talk about disappearing to some remote country no one had ever heard of, or starting an architecture firm, or losing himself in a bunch of books on concrete, or European politics, or whatever other random topics captivated the most enigmatic National Football League quarterback I'll ever write about.

The quarterback who played high school in Texas is the son of former Houston Oilers quarterback Oliver Luck. George obviously feels for Luck in this instance, as this had to be a very hard choice for the 29-year-old.

As droves of supporters came to the side of Luck as he tearfully and bravely announced his decision to retire, there was still a group of people that had choice words for the former No. 1 overall pick. All contributions are tax-deductible.
