  1. I was thrilled when Kelly was waived, thinking now he is a FA and can shop himself around to other teams that actually will want him, after their starter gets hurt, but no he resigned with the practice squad, ugh. A b ad move by Kelly imo, he will never be given a legitimate chance with the colts.

    Uhh he was mr irrelevant....he has had more opportunities than many many qbs that didn’t have the family tree to keep them in the league. He has done nothing to suggest he is anything but a practice arm.

    Then cut him. BTW he never did anything egregious unlike Jameis Winton who was up for sexual assault until he bought off his accuser. Also he was injured at the time of the draft so his stock was way down.

    well a somewhat small but VERY vocal group would have a meltdown. 

    Not me, I'd love for Kelly to be traded,  at least he will have a legitimate chance to earn a starting job with another team.  He'll never get that from the Colts.

    EVERY Colt QB will be a FA after this season. With the slot completely open, Kelly has his best chance to start right here, should he develop and fly right this year.  Rivers, Brissett, and Kelly are all on their last year of their contracts. 

    The main point I was making is that Kelly probably won't be given a legitimate chance to compete for the starting job so he will not re sign with the Colts. His rookie deal is up at the end of the season. I don't really know or care about the other 2 QBs contract status.

    Here's my take on this.   If things go well we have Phil Rivers for a couple of years, but no one to follow him.   We know Jacoby aint our man, and if anyone wants to take him on, I wish him all the very best.  Chad isn't a long term answer either, but we will need him or Jacoby incase Phil gets a knock. But not both, that doesn't make sense.

    So, we need to find a new QB at some point in the not too distant future.   

    I would use our last 6th round pick on Jacob Knipp.   Before you tell me he's rubbish, we are talking abot using pick 211, so it's obviously a gamble. I just think the kid is smart, calm under pressure and accurate(ish).  Worth using pick 211.

    Or we go back for anothe go next year.

    You don't know that.  You can speculate that CK isn't a long term solution but you can't know that .

  6. I can't believe y'all signed Rivers, I think that was a total waste of money.  I stick with my original plan, which was draft a developmental QB in the late 1st or early 2nd round and let CK & JB battle it out for the starting job this year.  Personally I think CK  would easily win that competition and be your long term/franchise qb. I could be wrong about CK, it's possible but I don't think I am.

  7. FWIW,  cut Hoyer,  draft a mid 2nd round qb for development and let CK &JB battle it out for the starting job. Personally I think CK would easily beat out JB for the starting position and become the Colts franchise qb.

    Let's assume Colts brass are convinced Brissett is not the long term answer, and Luck stays retired. What do you do? 

    1. Draft a QB, let him sit a year while Brissett starts

    2. Draft a QB, start him

    3. Let Brissett and Kelly compete for the starting job

    4. Sign a veteran. Play him a year or two, while grooming a drafted QB or Kelly


    Who from this list would you take for a year or two?


    2020 UFA QB's:

    Brady - does he re-sign or retire?

    Brees, Bridgewater - what do the Saints do? Keep the future or hold onto the past? This will be really interesting.

    Rivers - Are they drafting a QB, re-signing PR, or both?

    Manning - sign somewhere else or retire?

    Winston - re-sign?

    Mariota - will hit FA

    Tannehill - re-sign with Titans, unless he implodes the last 5 weeks.

    Prescott - re-sign with Cowboys, or franchise tag?




    Actually I would start Kelly next week and play him for the last 4 games to find out what you have. Then you can decide whether or not to move up in the draft. The kid is a baller and he totally outplayed Dak in college. You really don't have anything to lose at this point. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGuZ6LdLgnk
