And none of his rings were before he left Cleveland. His first ring was in his 9th season... Luck never got to his 9th season. That was my point - Luck was generational talent coming out of college and was playing a lot like it whenever he was healthy. The problem is Colts GM and coaching staff(the previous ones) did everything they could to ruin his career and they succeeded.
Didn't LBJ take them to the final couple times before going to Miami? Not sure Luck made to to the playoffs more than once while with Colts? Still a shack seeing Luck leave the game so young and walk from so much money. But the kid is rich and still healthy and young. More power to him.
He made the playoffs in his first 3 seasons(11-5 seasons) with a team that finished 2-14 the year before they got him in the draft and was advancing further and further into the playoffs every season. He got injured in the 4th season and the Colts finished 8-8 and missed the playoffs, then he played injured for the next year and missed half the season and Colts finished 8-8. Then he got surgery on the torn labrum he played with the previous 2 seasons and missed the next season, the Colts finished 4-12 that season. He was the most sacked and most hit QB in the entire league over that period. He had horrible offensive line and defense every single year over that period... He suffered
-at least 1 documented concussion,
-torn cartilages in 2 ribs,
-partially torn abdomen,
-torn labrum in his throwing shoulder
Then returned with his repaired shoulder last year(with new coach and new GM) and took the Colts to the playoffs again and 10-6 record and won a playoff game on the road vs the Texans. Then lost to the Chiefs... then he got some mysterious injury in camp in his lower leg and it wasn't getting any better and he decided to retire.
