Dealing with Andrew Luck’s Retirement
What Happened: Andrew Luck, two weeks before the start of the 2019 season, retired and sent shockwaves through the NFL landscape. Luck blamed the never-ending cycle of injury and recovery for robbing him of the love of the game.
What It Means: The Indianapolis Colts were 10-6 in 2018, beat their division-rival Texans in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, and lost in the divisional round to the Chiefs. Behind Luck’s masterful quarterbacking, the team finished 5th in points scored and 7th in total yards. They entered this season with 12-1 odds to win the Super Bowl, but have fallen to 30-1 since Luck’s announcement. The team was projected to win 9.5 games and was the favorite to win the AFC South. A day later, the Colts are expected to win 6.5 games and finished last in the division.
