Colts coach Frank Reich says Andrew Luck did the ‘honorable thing’
Andrew Luck may have angered Indianapolis Colts fans by deciding just weeks before the start of the regular season that he no longer wants to play football, but his teammates and coaches have made it clear that there are no hard feelings.
While speaking with reporters on Monday, Colts head coach Frank Reich said he gave an “emphatic no” when someone asked him if there is a sense that Luck let the team down. He also praised Luck for doing the “honorable thing” by not continuing with his playing career if he was less than 100 percent committed.

Luck has faced plenty of unfair criticism since he made his shocking decision, some of which came in the form of boos from Colts fans during Saturday night’s preseason game. However, everyone in the Colts organization has done nothing but wish him well.
The majority of the NFL community seems to share the same opinion that Aaron Rodgers has about Luck’s retirement and the way it has been received. Luck has dealt with numerous significant injuries and said the constant rehab took away his love for the game. Coaches and players can certainly understand that.
