I see why. It just amazes me. These guys are so skilled to get to this level, and they look like they have never worked on punt returning ever in their lives. How is that?

Not sure.

But my brother and I used to sit at my nephew's high school football games CONVINCED we could easily make 35 yard field goals.  Like.... convinced.

I think some things just appear easier than they are.

Kelly is coming back down to earth without Cain. That was a badly thrown ball. A good QB would of had Parris for the TD.

Yeah, let your WR run under.  He shorted him instead.

We all knew he wasn't perfect.

And I don't discount how difficult it is. I know, as I never could return myself. But I was a defensive guy with bad hands. I just can't imagine that most of the stud receivers in the leage wouln't be stud returners like TY was his rookie year or that AB was in Pittsburgh for so long.

I was on the Kelly hype....but that was definitely a bad ball....maybe he just doesn't realize how fast Campbell is?

Could be.  Campbell has been out about 13 or so days.  May not have had a lot of reps with him.

I think the Colts need to get Paris Campbell off the field.  We need him for the opener...healthy.

He's got to get some burn so he can test that hammy.  I have no issue with him playing a few more series.

Parris had to stop running when he realized it was a bad throw. I really would of loved to see him get that TD.

I still like Chad Kelly.  All young QBs will make their share of mistakes.  Hopefully he can learn quickly from them.

This is what pre-season is all about.  Make your mistakes here and don't do them in the real games - or again this game.

he hasn't got to play with him like at all for one and all the weapons he has built good chemistry with are bot playing so that sucks

One thing Kelly definitely has on Brissett is a quicker release. That's one thing that kinda worries me about Brissett. Kelly gets it out so fast (and pretty accurately) on all these short throws.

Not worried about that with Reich. His plays will be designed to get it out quick.

    • I see where you are coming from to some extent... but don't fully agree.  I think if you ask just about anyone who follows football and has for a long time to name the top 3 QBs ever, both Brady and Manning will be mentioned.  There are 23 QBs from the modern-era in the Pro Football HOF.  Several of those guys were not the best at their position at any point in their career.   Troy Aikman won multiple superbowls on absolutely loaded teams, but he was never a first or second team all-pro and was only a 6x pro-bowler (Rivers has gone to 8).  Aikman never lead the league in any major passing stat in any season of his career.  In 2008 Rivers threw the most TDs and had the highest passer-rating of any QB in the league, in 2010 Rivers lead the league in passing yards, in 2013 he lead the league in completion percent.  Aikman throughout his career was never really at the top of the league in terms of QB play (as evidenced by no first or second all-pro selections and never leading the NFL in any significant passer category) -- most would say Marino, Montana (early in AIkman's career), Steve Young, John Elway, Brett Favre, Jim Kelly, Warren Moon, and late in his career Kurt Warner and Peyton Manning were better QBs than Aikman.   That's one example out of many where guys who are in the HOF may not have been the top dog at any given point in their career, but still had a HOF career.  Compared to guys who he was drafted with who are likely HOFers, Rivers has better individual statistics than both Eli and Big Ben.  He was never really on an 'elite' team all-around (especially lacking a top notch defense like Eli and Ben both had during their SB wins).  RIvers beat Peyton in the playoffs and despite playing with other HOFers like Brady, Peyton, Brees, Eli, Big Ben, Kurt Warner, Favre, etc.. he made the pro-bowl 8x, and in 2008 when every one of those guys were in the league he still lead the league in passer rating and TDs thrown.     I get why post-season success can push a borderline guy (see Eli) over the edge.  But since Rivers has been in the league there have been 2 occassions when the QB representing the AFC team in the Superbowl wasn't named Brady, Peyton or Ben (1x Flacco with a loaded defense and 1x Mahommes who just had one of the greatest seasons by a QB in NFL history).     The level Rivers has played at, for the amount of time he's played, makes him a surefire HOFer (he's about to surpass Marino's records and the only knock on Marino was he didn't win a SB).  First ballot? Maybe... will he get in within a couple years of being eligible? Definitely.
    • Yeah, there are quite a few people that would not be in the HOF based on my criteria.
    • Seems unfair if it was once you signed a contract. That'd basically be an end to many players' careers. Players are rarely signed if they have a suspension of that length.
    • He's not right in the head. I honestly think something is severely troubled with him. If he can stay out year or two and prove he is serious about his recovery then maybe but not now.
