9/1 Roster Moves

You know, if the Colts think he's that good - and Frank Reich watches him everyday and probably knows something about NFL quarterbacks - they'll put him on the 53-man roster.  I don't always believe in the management of a pro sports team, but I trust Ballard and Reich to decide the best way to handle any Chad Kelly decisions. 

well they didnt cut him for a reason Frank is the one talking about him in the highest regard

With use not being able to get oline depth today I think we really need to address it in the draft next year. Maybe a round two or three pick.

So why are you concerned about the Colts putting him on the practice squad where they know any other team could sign him? Frank seems pretty sharp to me and very much on the same page as Chris Ballard. If Frank wants to keep Kelly, I bet they keep Kelly. That doesn't mean they shouldn't bring in somebody more experienced if they're not sure Kelly is ready for starting job and the spotlight that comes with it should Brissett get hurt or struggle in the starting role.

I never said he wasn't going to be on the team... I posted earlier that it speaks volumes that they are looking at veteran players to sign. Frank Reich agreed with Stephen Holder the night of Andrew's announce that they needed to find a veteran player. To me, that says they don't want Kelly as the Plan B right now. That doesn't mean he doesn't stick on the active roster. I don't generally like 3 qb's on an active roster, but we don't have a choice if we want Kelly here. 

 

If Ballard's mindset is anything like many of us on here that question Kelly, it's that him as plan B scares the Hell out of you... One more brush with the law and his season is over, effectively.

That is what I have said since AL retired

I'm glad to see WR Ashton Dulin made the practice squad.

He was looking good towards the end of preseason.

I agree. If they could pick up a guy like Hoyer I could see them letting Walker walk and carrying 3 QBs on the roster. I like Kelly's ability as much as anyone on here but I would like to give him more time to see if he can keep his nose clean and having a vet in reserve just in case he can't.

the whole point some are trying to make is he prolly isnt going to the PS cause he will likely be picked up. he prolly isnt plan B but he will have to be kept on the 53

That's the problem...they don't know how long they will need an extra backup, 2 weeks or 16 weeks or somewhere in between. I would think that Kelly would be fully up to speed as a backup by the end of the Colts bye week at week 6 at the latest.

If Kelly isn’t up to speed now there is a problem. He has been with this team since the spring.

Why wouldn't he be up to speed on week 3? He's been with the team all off-season.

Lol. I don’t think he was ever expected to be a backup. He is there to run the scout team.

I have no doubt he isn’t plan B. The kid doesn’t have a resume to speak of in the NFL. The Colts are building off a terrific 2018 season and more was expected this season. Kelly plays the most important position in football, and I just can’t see the Colts laying down this year. They will compete and that means having a solid veteran behind Brissett, who gives the Colts a chance to win in the event JB gets hurt or doesn’t produce.  Swag had a great preseason and good college career, but the Colts are in win mode, time now.

    • There is a good chance that Reich agrees with this. Ballard? I’m not sure if he’s doing due diligence watching Love or if he has him pegged as the next Mahomes.
    • The OL hasn’t been perfect but no OL is when they’re protecting a statue
    • There are at least 3 people who are probably saying. I told you we should have traded up and taken Will Hernandez.  
    • Disclaimer: I still don't know if Brissett is the future at QB.  But the more film I watch, the more Jordan Love looks like DeShone Kizer rather than Patrick Mahomes.  With where the Colts will be picking, there are no "sure thing" QBs.   Regardless of what the Colts do this off-season, Brissett is likely to be the starting QB next year.  It will be intriguing to see if the Colts can surround him with better skill talent and whether a full off-season to prepare like a starter helps him improve.    https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/12/08/nfl-week-14-preview-analysis   Excerpt:   Before the receiving corps deteriorated due to injury, the Colts were sitting at 5-2 and Brissett was on pace for 3,600 yards, 32 TD passes and a 99.3 passer rating. Now left with Zach Pascal and the Funky Bunch, Brissett would surely kill for the kind of talent Tom Brady has with the slumping Patriots at the moment.   Then there was the injury to Brissett himself, which has shaded this season. Had he not sprained his MCL in Pittsburgh and finished the de-pantsing of the Steelers rather than turning it over to Brian Hoyer to, well, turn it over for the remainder of that game as well as the next one (an upset loss to Miami), Indy would be sitting at 8-4 right now. If their kicking game hadn’t devolved at a stunning rate (if you project points-per-kick based on league-average rates from inside-50-yard attempts, 50-plus attempts and PATs, Adam Vinatieri is a league-worst -11.9 on the year while opposing kickers against the Colts are +7.4, fourth-best in the league), you could probably push that record to at least 9-3 (there were particularly egregious, arguably game-costing misses in losses to the Chargers in Week 1, and last week to Tennessee).   At this point in his career, Brissett is a high-end game manager. He has the potential to develop into much more. Since the last time we saw him, he's become a faster processor. The arm talent, underrated touch and functional mobility aren't going anywhere.   TRIVIA TIME   PLAYER A: 6.58 yards/attempt, 19 TD, 7 INT, while throwing to Pro Bowl slot receiver with three 1,000-yard seasons, veteran WR acquired for second-round pick, 2015 first-round pick, 2019 first-round pick who’s missed nine games, 28-year-old former All-Pro WR released after six games, veteran TE who’s missed six games   PLAYER B: 6.91 yards/attempt, 18 TD, 6 INT, while throwing to Pro Bowl WR who has missed six games, 2019 second-round WR who has missed six games, No. 1 TE who has missed two games, formerly undrafted TE whose never had a 700-yard season, three undrafted WRs (in second, third and fourth NFL seasons)   Can you match the player with his 2019 stats?   (Hint: Both of them have appeared in this post, and both aren't having great seasons)
