It's funny, the GM that got "Executive of the Year" for drafting Luck, is also the one responsible for shortening his career.
The Colts had a garbage offensive line, and Luck got destroyed behind it.
An article from yesterday:
Phillip Rivers, others recall their surprise one year after Andrew Luck's abrupt retirement
It's been one year since Luck hung up his cleats for good
By Bryan DeArdo Aug 24, 2020
A year later, Rivers is now tasked with helping the Colts get back to the playoffs for the first time since 2018, when Luck – that year's Comeback Player of the Year – led Indianapolis to the divisional round.
"I was walking off the field in a preseason game at halftime … somebody had gotten it, not a player, but somebody had gotten it when we were in the locker room,"
"One of the first texts I received was from Matthew Hasselbeck (an ESPN analyst and Luck's former teammate with the Colts)," Schefter said on "The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz."
"And he said to me, 'Are you sure?' And I texted back 'Yes.' And he said 'I don't know about that … I spoke to Andrew yesterday and today and he never mentioned anything to me.' And so when Andrew Luck's friend, and teammate and backup quarterback texted me asking me if I was right, I have to say it made me a little bit uneasy."
