I am more and more of the mindset its pointless to bring Luck back this year.

I did not feel that way a month ago or really even two weeks ago.

Week after week though of poor coaching and blown leads, this team is going nowhere this yar

It also may affect how much the advertisers pay during the game for commercials.
It isn't so much that, it's a problem with the overall fan base. Like it or not, the Colts (and Pacers) have a relatively weak fan base. If the teams aren't good, people won't pay much attention. Sure, there are some die-hard fans, but many of the people paying big money for the good seats are fair-weather. It's the reason that the roof is never open for a game at LOS. The fans would complain about being uncomfortable not having air-conditioning during the game. Irsay knows this from pre-Manning years of experience. It has improved since those days, but could pretty easily slide back. THAT is the main concern and the reason for the crap going on now.

I can say this because I'm from there and grew up with it. Hell, I stopped watching the Pacers (and NBA) after they lost to the Lakers in the Finals in 1999/2000. They will never win a title, so I stopped wasting my time. When I was in grade school, the Pacers would give free tickets to the schools. I attended many a game in Market Square Arena back in the Wayman Tisdale days for free. We'd get free tickets and my friend's parents would load us into the car and off we'd go.

Yep. Guy didn't throw a ball for 9 months. Those muscles have to get back into throwing shape. It's why I was always pessimistic about the record predictions this year. He was always unlikely to be "right" until late in the season anyway.

Those two wins hurt. It would've been nice to be ahead of Cleveland or SF in the pecking order. Those teams need QBs and may have overpaid to move up like the Bears did.

True, though thereís potentially three franchise QBís that could go for a bevy of picks.

It's really beginning to look like a shut down year for Luck. I'm okay with that unless it also means that Pagano gets another chance next year.

Which we should have done with the Luck pick.
I said it then, I was right as hindsight has shown

I'm curious of the evidence for why you feel vindicated.
