On a slow say, I thought I would talk about a different sort of topic. Jim Irsay (owner of the Colts) said recently he would definitely consider taking Luck if he was in the position to do so. He pointed out how Rodgers sat behind Farvre for a few years. The MSM picked this up and ran with it for a while. All of the MSM discussion really focused on it from the Colts point of view. I believe there is no way Luck would sign with the Colts and here is why:
- He is a junior and can go back for his senior year if he wants.
- I'm sure this talk of being the best prospect since Elway has swelled his head and probably wants to play as opposed to hold a clipboard for 2-4 years.
- This is the most hyped QB in decades and I suspect he has no intention of riding the pine for those previously mentioned 2-4 years. Consider that his contract will be 4-5 years. Think of the money he could lose by riding the pine. He wouldn't have a chance to prove himself for a huge next contract. Second, he will not be getting the big endorsements if he doesn't play. If you were his agent, would you tell him to play for the Colts?
