Ryan Lewis may not be a ST Ace but in the three games he started last year for the Bills he recorded 15 tackles, 3 pass breakups, 2 forced fumbles and 2 special teams tackles. 

 

Seems fairly productive when given the chance.

 

Also, he ran a 4.37 so he's now our fastest DB.

 

Fairly sure those stats were over the entire season. He only started 3 games but I'm sure he appeared (in some capacity) in most of the games during the season.

Hoyer might even be better than Brisset tbh.  he wont have the same arm, but the guy is a good game manager 

 

Oh, god, he's everything but good. He had, what, maybe 6-8 good games in a row in Cleveland in 10 years?

 

He is poor man's Fitzpatrick. He has one good game every once in a while, which makes you believe he is a real quarterback. Then, you have to realize, he isn't. He just lost his job to a rookie. And before that, to C.J. Beathard, and before that to Osweiler.

No. The main goal would be to find the best quarterback they can at that point. They may or may not think Chad Kelly is that guy. 

 yes the season is pretty much washed if that happens, unless kelly is good

I am not doubting the player I do not one give the keys to a NFL franchise to a “kid”

  see Art Schlicter a d Jeff George

there is a gap between giving him the keys and putting him on the practice squad where anyone can take him from.  he should be the backup, thats hardly giving him the keys

If he is the primary backup he is one snap away

    Ask Colt McCoy

I know people don't like Walker on the PS but he'd make a good scout QB in practice.

 

There is a reason he's still on this roster/practice squad. He's very valuable to the scout team and he conducts himself like a professional... which speaks volumes to front offices.

i said as much yesterday...the scout team QB isnt about to get sacked and given time in a clean pocket he can make all the throws he's mobile and you probably can use him for all sort of looks for the coming team you'd face. While having someone with a good arm is good too the PW hate on this board is unwarranted.

what would he need to do to show you hes ready to be a backup? time is pretty limited, might have to take a chance on his character with luck putting the team in this situation

And that's a little risky with a guy who was arrested for drunken stupidity less than nine months ago and has been in trouble that the public knows about at least four times.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2018/10/24/broncos-qb-chad-kelly-hit-with-vacuum-tube-arrested-trespassing/

Act more mature than he did in Denver

 

       And if he doesn’t 

will forte fox GIF by The Last Man On Earth

they have said nothing but good things about him here, i guess it comes down to how long you think it should take to prove it

 

the Denver situation was pretty bizarre, my take away from that was he was drunk af and made a fool out of himself.  definitely a bad look but nothing heinous

    • The idea of drafting a QB is exciting, but with this team built to win now, I’ll say Darnold. 
    • There were rumors about attitude issues with Rosen that go back to before he even got on the field at UCLA. They persisted throughout his college career, at times exacerbated by his own behavior, and followed him through the draft process. He's been ditched by two NFL teams in two seasons, and is on the practice squad for his third team.    I agree that his circumstances have sucked, but I'm also starting to think that there's something to all these rumors. I'd be okay with letting someone else undertake the Josh Rosen Experiment.
    • Ballard is a very competent, solid and well respected GM. For the most part I still feel like the franchise is in good hands.  He isn’t infallible and is over rated by some at times.  He was spared from making a huge blunder out of the gate when Josh McDaniels reneged on becoming his head coach. I think that hire could have really set us back. Fortunately, he was on the right side of luck with that.  Unfortunately, Luck kicked him in the butt when he retired so suddenly.  So you take the good breaks along with the bad and hold him to how he adjusts.  His legacy will ultimately be determined by how well he can address the franchise quarterback void.    The Colts win/loss record during the Ballard regime isn’t that impressive considering the respect and deference that fans and colleagues grant him. Yet despite the record, you can clearly see where improvements to the overall roster have been made.  The team is young and laden with potential that still must be realized. Perhaps the biggest challenge to Ballard finding the next great Colts QB is that the team is built well enough to carry an expectation to win and compete right now and for the immediate future. At what point do we insert an inexperienced, strong armed Eason in to see what he can do.  Does that decision potentially jeopardize a future season where the Colts roster would otherwise be expected to complete?  Not an easy decision to make and a delicate balancing act to say the least.   Ballard’s drafts have been a mixed bag but he has had some astounding successes that more than make up for any mistakes. His sweet spot is the 2-4th rounds.  His 1st round picks haven’t been noteworthy although he made a great decision to trade last year’s for Buckner.  He loves to trade out of the first round to amass picks or add talent to the roster.  However, eventually he will need to not avoid making a first round selection for fear of drafting another potential bust...like Hooker.   All in all, I still like Ballard and believe he is capable of building a Super Bowl caliber team in Indy...eventually. 
    • I think their ILB situation is bad and their CB’s are shaky. I didn’t realize the OL quality was due to injuries though, so I’m wrong on that front. I thought their starting OL five was the ones they play now. Like I said though, Mahomes covers those small weaknesses perfectly.
    • I think it would be nice.   All 3 would push each other and we could have a pretty strong QB stable.
