Luck made the shocking decision to retire from the NFL tonight. Here is how the fanbase reacted to his announcement.
Andrew Luck is no longer an active member of the Indianapolis Colts. Let that sink in. It was the moment Colts fans had to let sink in late Saturday night as the 4th quarter of the game against the Bears unfolded. By the end of the game, the fans were not happy.
Unfortunately, some fans thought it was a good idea to boo Luck as he left the field.
This was not the right reaction for fans to have to this announcement. Luck even said in his press conference, “Not going to lie, that hurt”. Luck gave his heart and soul to this team for the 8 years he was with the organization. He deserved better in his final send off.
Fans have been reacting as you would expect. Most are shocked. A lot are heartbroken. Some are angry as well. Everyone is confused, including me. No one saw this coming after the season the Colts had last year. Everyone thought this team was primed to make a deep run.
Some fans were still positive about the situation.
I’m not sure that’s what most fans are thinking right now, but good for you. It’s going to take some time for this news to digest, but in time everyone will move on. It’s now time for Jacoby Brissett to step up to the plate and deliver.
Chris Ballard and Frank Reich have their work cut out for them. But this is what they get paid to do. Hopefully, fans have a better reaction than what they did to Luck the last time he was out at Lucas Oil Stadium.
