Offensive tackle Tarik Glenn will not be back to help the Indianapolis Colts defend their Super Bowl title, according to several people close to the 10-year veteran, choosing instead to retire.

Huge news for the Colts o-line this year if it does indeed happen.

Darn, that sucks. He's a very good player who I think can still play for quite some time. But he's pretty much accomplished everything since winning the Super Bowl. Obviously though there are more important things than football.

Guess I shouldn't be too surprised though. It's probably a main reason Tony Ugoh was drafted.

*Both starting corners
*Cato June
*Tarik Glenn

The Colts might be following in the footsteps of the Stellers by not making the playoffs after their Superbowl victory.

That's a lot to replace.

marlin jackson, who imo can start and will be a stud
i didnt think cato was good, just a product of the small system they got going on there
Tony ugoh, who isnt as good as glenn, but can lessen the blow

They may indeed have to score a lot to win quite a few games this season, but I still think they're too good of a team not to make the playoffs. Barring the lowest win total I could possibly see them having is 10.

He's going to have to improve upon his 0% success rate in single coverage and allow a lot less than 9 yards per pass. Hopefully he grows into something special.

Wow... I didn't expect that at all.

Very unfortunate for them that he did it so late.

reaching and way overspending for OT Tony Ugoh makes a little more sense now. I thought they were crazy at the time. Giving up next years 1st rounder for him. They must've known it all along.

And now ends the Ironman streak that will threaten Favre's soon.
Hey, I can hope, right?
This is a big blow for the Colts, as I don't have faith in Ugoh to step up. He was one of the draft prospects I really wanted the Pack to stay away from.

Not good news for the Colts. Tarik Glenn was one of the top LTs in the game and I highly doubt a rookie (Tony Ugoh) will be able to step up and play well right away, let alone perform at Glenn's level. Their Super Bowl odds took a hit.

It is pretty late to decide to retire, it is close to training camp.

Wasn't expecting this to happen. Most o-lineman have more than 10 years in the tank. This seems similar to the way Willie Roaf retired out of nowhere on the Chiefs last year.

Considering that left tackle is arguably the 1st or 2nd most important position in football, this news is pretty big. But, since MAnning is one of the best ever, i think he'll be able to handle it. I dont Ugoh will be as much help as you guys think though since he's just a rookie from the second round; it's not like he's some super stud who should be able to step right in and play great.
