  • Green Bay vs Oakland in Winnipeg is being played on an 80 yard field. Complete fiasco.

    This is...something. Apparently they've cut IG Field down to just 80 yards for the game tonight, meaning the end zones are now the 10 yard line. It's because of concerns over the conditions in the actual end zones, where the CFL goal posts were removed. #wfp

      I just heard John Clayton talk about this. It seems the NFL and Oakland had given the okay on the field, but Green Bay didn't.

            They were talking about this on the Seattle pregame show tonight. They were trying to think back to the last time a player of this stature retired in his prime and concluded Barry Sanders was the closest they could come up with, although it made more sense to them.

            Sad that his career went the way it did with all the injuries and overall he'll likely be considered a bust for what he was payed. He has the arm, the smarts, but what was missing?

              Absolutely not a bust. He was in the league for 7 seasons, played 6 of them, made the playoffs 4 times, went to a conference title game with nothing around him, and put up numbers that were among the best in football history for any QB through six years. I think he was without a doubt worth the #1 pick, and played even better than expected for the hype he came in with. Just battled injuries and decided it wasn't worth it anymore. Guy has made almost 100 million dollars in his career, and didn't like being constantly in pain. I don't blame him. I think Colts fans will eventually come to their senses and realize he's the 2nd best QB in franchise history and they got more than enough out of him. Yea, bad timing, but he wasn't being expected to play much this year, anyway, after all the injury stuff happening all off-season.

                Who's 1st? Johnny U or Manning?

                I meant with more how short his career was and not being in the playoffs almost every year like Manning that they expected. The number 2 pick was a definite bust that year in RGIII, but you also consider Russel Wilson was in it and how he's missed 1 playoffs, been to 2 Super Bowls, and won one against Manning at that. When you compare, he wasn't the best QB in that draft.

                The QB that I think has reached expectations in that draft is Cousins, middle of the pack starter. I just think Luck hasn't lived up to the expectations that everyone in the media had of him as the #1 pick.

                  Kind of a dick move to do it now and not during the off season so the Colts could plan....

                    I was thinking that too. Do they go with Jacoby Brissett now at QB with a rookie backup like their roster is now? There isn't time to bring in another QB and teach them the system.

                        I knew that was coming! Getting him familiar with the offense though in 2 weeks? Not sure that is possible. I don't even think Tom Brady could go in there and know the system in 2 weeks.

                          Considering the extreme hype that Luck had coming out of college, I would label him as a bust. He was supposed to be the second coming.

                            Then he was better than Manziel and Tebow, who were both praised throughout college as the first coming!

                              That was my point too, he was to be the next Peyton Manning. Did he have a good career? Yes. Did he have a great/exceptional career? No.

                              I decided to look up a list of #1 pick QB's and back 15 years the worst was likely Jemarcus Russel. Luck reminds me more of Sam Bradford with all the injuries, but I don't remember Bradford having all the hype of Luck.

                                Luck was a generational talent. Hardly a bust. If anyone is a bust, it's the Colts medical staff who have clearly failed in this whole thing and likely explains why the Colts were so quick to give Andrew his $25 million. Hey buddy, don't sue or trash us for screwing your health up for years.
