    We’ve seen a lot of superstars retire in prime recently. Calvin Johnson, Patrick Willis and now Andrew Luck.

    Calvin followed Barry Sanders as Lions legends who were sick of losing and had no recourse due to their contract issues.

    Willis essentially had a career ending injury to his foot.

    Luck, I guess, is a conglomeration of shoulder and ankle injuries.

    But this generation and their need for fulfillment really is to blame here. Maybe itís a good thing, maybe not that these players care more about their quality of life and their fulfillment than about being the best they can be in their chosen craft. Luck didnít like that he was always hurt. Well, thatís football for you. Take a look at LT, Montana, Theismann, any of the greats, and they were always battling something. Maybe Luck said, Iíve got my money, now letís see if my brain will work long term. Who knows? Itís a blow to the league. Itís a blow to his legacy. But maybe itís good for him, who knows. I have a sneaking suspicion that Luck returns next year after taking a year away from football

    I'd like to have a buck for every boxer and football player who hung around too long and paid the price for it . Smart move by Luck . You only live once .
