  1. What's one example of a great NBA player in his prime taking a paycut/considerably less than he's worth?
  2. It's not like Luck was being paid big money the entire time though. He was on a rookie deal until 2016.
  3. Andrew Luck informs Colts he plans to retire

    That's respect right there. Great thing from the Colts.
  4. Luck Hypothetical

    Yeah those Broncos teams were ridiculous. No way he has a 2013 caliber season with the Colts. The Demaryius Thomas WR screen was unstoppable. Even by the end of Manning's 3rd year, you could tell he was declining rapidly. I don't think the Colts as they were built would have gotten more than 2 good/great seasons out of him. Even 2010 wasn't exactly one of Manning's best seasons - damn near career lows across the board when compared to his 2003-2009 stretch.
  5. Andrew Luck informs Colts he plans to retire

    It wouldn't surprise me if Luck stuck with this decision, given everything he could do outside of the game, but I expect he'll be back. Definitely not this season, and I could see him missing 2020 too. But I think he'll be back by 2021. I'm sure he thought this through and all, but it's still a decision he made in 2 weeks. If his body is feeling better 2 years from now, I think he'd be willing to play a couple of more seasons.
  6. Andrew Luck informs Colts he plans to retire

    When is losing a franchise QB not a major inconvenience lol There is nothing else the Colts could have done about this even if they knew at the time of the draft.
  7. Fans Boo Luck as he walks off field

    On that same token, why is it okay to root for players and coaches to lose their jobs? I think it's the same thing here. That (super tiny small fraction) of fans that booed Luck were booing the fact their season got derailed. Selfish, yes, but again it's no different than hoping the head coach of your favorite team loses his job. You want him to lose his job to better your team. Just like those fans were booing Luck because it worsened their team. I get the fans did a douchey thing. But I don't understand why people are making such a big deal out of it. It's not that serious.
  8. Andrew Luck informs Colts he plans to retire

    I don't really see what the big deal is. The group of fans that booed him doesn't even make up 1% of the fanbase. And yeah, booing him wasn't the smart decision, but it makes sense. They just had their season go down the tubes. Is it a selfish POV? Yea, but it isn't the most evil thing in the world. And again, it's such a miniscule portion of the fanbase. It would have probably happened with any team. If it leaked Cam Newton was retiring during a preseason game, I'm sure a small section of our crowd would boo him. This sucks though. Andrew Luck was so freakin' good. His last healthy years (2016, 2018) were his best years IMO. He was a machine and really fun to watch play. But it's good that he made the decision that was best for his life.
  9. Preseason Week 3 GDT

    http://www.nfl.com/videos/baldys-breakdowns/0ap3000001043785/Brian-Burns-continues-to-shine-in-preseason-Week-3-Baldy-s-Breakdowns I know it's just the preseason, but his athleticism is out of this world. There was a play last week against the Bills where he showed some of the most incredible bend from a pass rusher. 4 sacks in 3 games Still a little raw, needs to add more power but I have a feeling he's gonna be special
  10. That's what we want ya'll to think. We're gonna clap the Rams with ease
  11. Playstaton 5

    I doubt GTA 6 comes out for years, sadly. It took them 7 years between GTA IV and GTA 5. We're only at 4 years since GTA 5. I feel like the next game they announce will be Bully 2. GTA 6 is going to be crazy though so I hope I'm wrong.
  12. Eh, Panthers don't really run the read-option that much anymore. Not with Turner anyway. I mean of course you call it when you have a guy like Newton, but last year Cam had his 2nd lowest attempts per game and usually only ran out of necessity. So that is why we have guys like Grier and Allen, pocket passers although they can get mobile. Granted they aren't good so there's that. But I don't really care. It's why the Grier pick was... meh. I wasn't against it but at the end of the day, if Newton gets hurt, we are screwed no matter what.
  13. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)

    I hate console exclusivity, granted it's only for a weekend but still lol Is the TTK comparable to any other COD?
  14. Madden 20

    The difference is 2K's basketball game is FAR better than EA's football game. Yea the microtransactions suck, but at least 2K tries to give a good product with a lot of content. Madden puts no effort into any of their modes. MyGM for example has wayyyyyyyyyyy more detail than any franchise mode from EA I can remember
  15. It's all good. We've got our Kurt Warner in Kyle Allen (Accidental double post because it's so true)
