Do the Colts put Chad Kelly on the 53 man roster after his suspension is over?

Romo won the Walter Peyton award and was the OVC Player of the Year 3 years in a row.

 

And Russell Wilson? Mediocre except for his senior year? Perhaps you are thinking of someone else.

 

Russell Wilson put up 3,998 total yards (11th nationally) and 37 TD’s his junior year. He had 3,287 total yards and 35 TD’s his sophomore year. He ended his college career with 6,516 more total yards and 75 (yes, seventy-five) more TD’s than Brissett.

 

Statistically, Brissett will be a once or twice in a generation anomaly if he has any success whatsoever as an NFL starting QB. I really don’t like his odds.

I guarantee Jb wil have a better statistical year than Kyler Murrey.  He has been learning in an offense and growing for two years .  These gimmick offense qbs haven't had much success in the NFL.   The hoodie took him in the third round for a reason.   I'll take his analysis of his college career over yours.

If you look back at most elite QB they don’t come from big schools who are in contention for national championships.  For instance everyone talks about wanting Lawrence but a lot of pundits say to stay away from them because those schools have so much talent and it’s hard to evaluate a QB.

A legitimate point. This might get me put into a mental institute but I've always wondered how much of Brady's success is actually attributable to Tom Brady himself.

He was swimming.  Read any article. He tried to lie to the police saying he was wet because it was raining.  I brought him up because he was also 22 or 23 with an ego the size of Texas and money to boot.  He screwed up. In some regards what he did was worse. He WAS an Indianapolis Colt and he understood that came with certain expectations.  The point I was trying to make was when you are 22-23 , you dont really understand your actions have consequences yet. It takes a big mistake to right the ship. Mcafee did and became a lethal weapon and pro bowler for the Colts.

Well hell, how many teams have routinely been in national championship contention the past decade? 4? 5? Bama, Clemson, Ohio State, and Oklahoma. There is literally no parity at all in college football. It's gross.

Oh absolutely. I wasn't contradicting you. Just making an independent point. There have been a lot of national championship QB's who weren't worth a crap. Pick any Bama QB ever. Although I do think Tua is going to be a legit NFL guy.

Yeah, and Brissett had to transfer because Jeff Driskell beat him out at Florida. Brissett couldn’t even get the starting job in a conference that Kelly dominated. 

 

Ok, I'll tell the whole story.  Brissett was a true Freshman at U of F and backup to Brantley and ahead of Driskel in 2011.  He was recruited there by Charlie Weis, who ran a pro set O.  However, Weis left for Kansas HC job for 2012, and JB started the first game for the Gators in 2012. Driskel was named the starter thereafter, Muschamp citing his legs/mobility gave them an extra dimension their developing O needed.  JB did move on, and Driskel got hurt in 2013, came back and stunk. Had to go to to Louisiana Tech for 2015-

 

Driskel's stats 2012 -2014 at U of F-

2015                 237            395            60.0          2,662             20             6

 

 

I can almost guarantee that if Weis didn't leave to be HC at Kansas, JB would have been the Gators QB, not Driskel.  Weis talks good things about JB to this very day. I Never hear a peep about Driskel from him.  JB's stats are much better than Driskel after he left U of F too, and he was drafted in round 3 where Driskel was taken in round 6.  Now the Bengals are trying Driskel in the WR position (similar to Taysom Hill) while JB is a starting QB.

So he’d have done better as a QB in the SEC than he did in the ACC?

 

He was going to be a mediocre QB wherever he ended up starting.

What did all those awards get Tony Romo?     Undrated.    The entire NFL took a pass on him.

 

The Cowboys got him as a free agent.    So, he's a great example of someone who improved as a pro over what he was in college.     He exceeded ALL expectations.

 

And most of the NFL was not sold on Russell Wilson.   Props to Seattle for seeing his potential, but he was drafted 75th.   I think Philly liked him too.     But the list of teams who thought Wilson would turn into something is short.    It's not unreasonable to say he has also exceeded the expectations of most...

But this whole conversation even taking place kind of proves my point. We’re arguing about whether 1 or 2 guys were great in college. 1 or 2 guys. That shows just how uncommon it is.

 

How many average starting QB’s have their been in just the past 20 years? Plenty. Yet we’re debating 1 or 2 guys. ALL of the rest were excellent in college. His odds of being a good starting QB are probably like 100 to 1 according to statistics.

I know we've discussed this before, but not sure why comparing a bad QB (Driskel) to JB gives us any answers. The fact CW liked him, and Muscamp didn't doesn't really tell us anything either. Weis's track record is questionable at best. And playing QB in the ACC is exponentially easier than playing QB in the SEC.

 

In terms of Weis, in hindsight, you can make the following observations since 2000

-After he left NE, Brady actually improved and had one of his best seasons ever immediately after Weis left.

-At ND, he was gifted 2 top 5 QBs (Quinn and Clausen) one of which was the number one overall recruit and actually regressed after his first year.

-He then spent one year as KC's OC with no change to the passing game (total yards), but did see the team improve a lot rushing.

-He then went to Kansas and compiled a 6-22 record with only one win in conference. He was also gifted a ND transfer and former 5 star #1 Pro QB who he wasn't able to do anything with.

 

Not trying to be argumentative, but the whole Weis seal of approval doesn't hold a lot of water.

I agree with you,  that's it's rare.    Highly unusual.     But it's not 1 or 2.

  

Poster @jvan1973   had this list....  Tom Brady,   Tony Romo,  Kurt Warner,   Russell Wilson.  That's four in the last 25 years.   With three of them in the last 20 years.

 

Are the odds long for Jacoby?    Sure.   But everything I read, I like.   I find encouraging.  Doesn't mean he'll be great out of the gate.   I'm not wild about the circumstances of the last two weeks.  I think it's made a hard job even harder.    I would not be surprised if we started off somewhat slowly,  and then got better.    Much as we did last year.    Would't be surprised at all.

 

Good series of posts by you.   Hope you enjoy the website.   The message boards here can be addictive.    And this looks to be a very interesting season.....

Eight pages in a topic about whether a 3rd string qb should be on the 53 man roster! I'll put my opinion on. He should be, there is no way he clears waivers. Hoyer is not the answer, 1-10 in his last 11 starts. Brissett gets his chance, atleast the team is 100% behind Brissett, Hilton and Leonard have no problem with Brissett at qb and that is very important. The confidence level of this team is off the charts, now, just go out there and win. I will also say this, if we still had Luck we would easily contend for the championship in February, now I still think we can win the division but the road will be a lot tougher after that.

On the overall question I'mma weigh in and I'm going to say no.  Kelly has special talent, so if it was any other position I'd be more open minded.  If he was a running back I'd be all for giving him a shot.  If he was a wideout what he did wouldn't even be that unusual.  But quarterback is the one position where the "million dollar talent, 10 cent head" thing just doesn't fly. 

 

QB is one of the most cerebral positions in major professional sports and if that headspace just isn't dependable it's going to affect the whole team.  Your quarterback has to be a leader, not just a talent, and Chad Kelly can't even control himself, much less lead a team 

 

In other words, Chad Kelly is a project that checks every box but the most important one.  I understand why people are excited about him but I'm just not.  I'd rather spend that roster spot on something to help our current team succeed, this year.  It's such a longshot that Chad Kelly actually helps us this year that I'm against blowing a roster spot on that.  Let it go.  There will be other quarterback prospects that don't have a black mark in the worst possible area.

This season should tell us a lot about the importance of a quarterback to the team, and to football in general. This will vary from team to team, of course, but there are a lot of unknowns going into the first 3 - 4 weeks of the season. I find the prognostication - the what-ifs - interesting, given we really don't have much to base those prognostications on. You pays yer money and you takes yer chances. Stay tuned.

Another poster said he lost his job at U of F to Driskel, without giving the backstory. As far as Weis (who was brilliant guiding Brady through his developmental years as Pats QB), well...

 

Some guys are good talent evaluators, and great Coordinators, but fail as Head Coaches.  The Football history is littered with them.

 

IE: Rod Marinelli, Dom Capers, Buddy Ryan, Eric Mangini, Romeo Crennel, Josh McDaniels, Marty Mornhinweg, Kevin Gilbride, ...  etc

 

How do you feel about Bill Parcells approving comments then? Does the Tuna qualify for endorsement? These were right after the draft.

 

"He’s a Curtis Martin, Willie McGinest, Troy Brown type player," Parcells said of Brissett, via the Boston Herald. "That’s the kind of guy he is. That’s what New England is getting. Those kinds, those Tedy Bruschi types, those players who’ve been successful.

 

“You never really know for sure until you see a player under the gun, so to speak, at the top level,” Parcells continued. “But, that being said. I have a very high regard for this young man. He’s an awesome kid. He’s very bright. He has zero personal issues. He’s a very dedicated, committed guy and I think he’s going to the absolute perfect place for him. They’ve got a great coach, a great organization, and they’ve got a great role model playing that he’ll be able to observe and learn from. It just doesn’t get any better than that. Because of what I think he has, his career is going to develop well."

 

At the NFL level, some good measure of talent is assumed (or you do not get scouted/drafted). And do you feel the bolded statement applies to the Colts, Reich, and Luck as much as it did Patriots, Belichick, and Brady?  I think this is put up or shut up time for Brissett, but JB gives the Colts the best chance to win at this time, and for at least the first half of the year at the minimum.

 

My personal guess is Kelly does make the 53, but is one of those listed as a healthy scratch (upon return) on the inactive list each week early in the season.

This again? C'mon bro, did you miss the post where I blew the idea completely out of the water that Wilson was an average college QB?

 

I'll post it again:

 

Russell Wilson put up 3,998 total yards (11th nationally) and 37 TD’s his junior year. He had 3,287 total yards and 35 TD’s his sophomore year. He ended his college career with 6,516 more total yards and 75 (yes, seventy-five) more TD’s than Brissett.

 

Russell Wilson's senior year he was NUMBER ONE nationally in QBR. Luck was 5th that same year fwiw. Brissett's senior year he was SIXTY-FOURTH. Out of 130 D-1 programs, that's pretty much exactly average. I'd argue being ranked No.1 out of 130 is anything but average. 

 

Wilson was an elite college QB. Stop this nonsense.

That was almost 35 years ago. You can't compare today's stats to that era. He was third in Heisman voting and those 2,729 yards set a Michigan passing record that stood until 2002. He also held the national career record for passer rating for 12 years. 

 

In other words, Harbaugh set national records as a college quarterback. Brissett didn't rank in the top 50 in any QB stat in college.

I was listening to Jim Miller and Pat Kirwin the other day on Sirius XM’s Moving The Chains, and both felt very strongly that philosophically teams should carry 3 QBs so as to better develop game ready alternatives at the game’s best position.  They were quite adamant that many teams are really making big mistakes in not so doing.

 

Given the Colts’ QB situation, count me in the camp that thinks they DO keep Kelly on the 53.  It makes perfect sense!  You have what you hope to be your mainstay QB, Brissett.  You have the wise well travelled vet backup, to help tutor and help break things down.  And you add to the mix a talented and inexpensive young 3rd QB to hopefully really develop, if not just into the eventual # 2, but to create a tradable draft asset.

Hear Hear!!  That's absolutely where I'm at on CK. Not to mention his 'flashes' of fun were against 2s and 3s in pre-season.

Good point about comparing era's but 10 TD's and 11 INT's is what it is. Brissett was 20 and 6 his senior year, 23 and 5 his junior year. One can't really compare yards because teams do throw more now but the TD to INT ratio you can compare. My point is Harbaugh threw more INT's than TD's his senior year and still played great for us for a couple years.

 

I am not sold on Brissett but I do say lets give him a chance before we get too critical of him. He was 4-11 in 2017 because we had a bad team/bad O.Line around him and poor play calling.

This is a good point.  When you have a manning or luck I can understand being all in on them and only carrying one backup.  With our current qb situation I like the idea of three.
