"just got to move on"

July 25, 2007

The shock has worn off, and a few days later Tarik Glenn’s retirement has been formalized. It is kind of sad, and still a little shocking to see #78 leave this way. I do feel better knowing that this is a decision he is making out of his respect for the team and the game. When you’re done, you’re done. According to Mr. Glenn:

“Hearing people talk and players asking me to reconsider and reminding me of some of the things and what I mean to this team, it hurts. It really hurts. But I’m real convinced this is what I should do.”

I will reiterate what I believe is one of the most refreshing things about this era of the Indianapolis Colts: the players don’t mess around or play head games. Tarik isn’t using a ploy or acting out because Freeney got paid. He’s just done. Good Luck Tarik and thanks for keeping our boy clean all these years.
