It's been an emotional day for Colts fans and NFL fans as a whole following the sudden retirement of Andrew Luck. His surprise departure from football has certainly put his impressive career into perspective.

Shortly after the announcement on Saturday night, The Checkdown compiled a video of mic'd up moments by Luck. It highlights how nice he was to players hitting or sacking him on a passing play.

Each time he would go down, he'd shout words of encouragement to the opposing player. It's quite a sight to see.

The video has garnered over 2.6 million views in less than 18 hours since it was posted. It's also gotten over 7,900 retweets and 34,500 likes.

Luck retired on Saturday following a string of injuries which have cost him numerous games and a lot of discomfort over the past few years.

In seven years in Indianapolis, he threw for over 23,000 passing yards and 171 touchdowns with only 83 interceptions. He led the Colts to two AFC South titles, four playoff appearances, and a spot in the 2014 AFC Championship Game.

The 29-year-old Pro Bowler joins the ranks of many NFL stars who shockingly retired early due to injuries or pain.

But this video definitely makes you realize how much he respected the game, and especially his opponents.
