I don’t think there was one person that follows the NFL, who wasn’t caught off guard by the sudden news of Andrew Luck‘s early retirement. With the announcement coming the last week of August, the Colts were left scrambling with only a handful of weeks to find a starting quarterback before the opening of the regular season.

We all know what happened: Andrew Luck, beaten and exhausted beyond repair, retired at age 30, breaking Colts fans’ hearts worldwide.
