It's going to be funny if we resign him tomorrow to the PS. Or perhaps not be funny if he gets picked up by someone.

If we put him on the PS I am fine with that. Don’t know why that is funny. If he makes it through waivers I think it’s smart to sign him to the PS.

Can you think of a successfull qb drafted in the 7th round with multiple arrests?

Why would that be funny?  It's where he belongs

Kelly will probably say no thanks so he can go ready for the epic battles he's gonna have against Johnny Football in the XFL. 

Doubtful.   Ps in the NFL is better than starting in the XFL.

The glee you get while facing a future of mediocrity is beyond me. But hey, keep thinking JB is going to suddenly be a great QB.

And you do the same thinking every team is clamoring for Chad.   Jacoby is better.   The coaches agree

Then why is it getting this much attention ????????????

This much attention here.   Nowhere else

I gotta give you and East Street a lot of credit.     You've been proven wrong,  and yet,  here you are, still trying to show you're the smartest guys in the room.     Even when it's obvious that you're not.    Good for you.

 

But one of the smartest, most respected front offices disagrees with you.

 

One of the smartest,  most respectd coaching staffs disagrees wtih you.

 

Sorry.    But the ship sailed on this.    The votes are in and tabulated.    You two lost and you lost HUGE!!

 

If figuring out who was going to be a good QB or a bad QB was as easy as you're trying to make it out to be,  then you'd be a General Manager right now.     And in case you haven't noticed........   

 

So,  you keep posting.    You keep telling all of us that you're right and Chris Ballard is wrong.   You keep telling us that you're right and Frank Reich is wrong.    You remind me of the Knight in the Monte Python movie...   you've got your arms and legs cut off,  and you keep asking for more!    Good luck with that....

Cool. Take a victory lap while our team is stuck with Jacoby Brissett yet again. Pop the champagne for 8-8.

Some of the Kelly fans ought to love this take: 

 

Colts waive Chad Kelly in unsurprising move

 

Quote

 

Kelly isn’t good enough to be a starter in this league, and his viability as a backup is questionable too because of his off the field issues. He can’t stay on the field because he makes bad decisions off of it. That’s part of the reason the Colts moved on from him.

 

When he did play in the preseason, Kelly wasn’t too bad. He showed some moments with his arm and his legs. But it wasn’t good enough to overcome the myriad of other issues. He doesn’t have elite arm strength, and his decision making was suspect at times as well.

 

Kelly might have played well enough in preseason to get onto a practice squad. His ceiling might even be a backup somewhere. But the fact that some people said he should be a starter is insane.

IF Kelly makes it to the practice squad, they can call him up at a moments notice if JB sucks.

You know, of course,  this is a classic Straw man argument.

 

Nobody is making this argument.


But you and East Street are the ones saying Kelly is the better prospect.   That he has the higher ceiling.    And now,  you conveniently drop that aspect of the argument and try to reduce it to just Jacoby.    You've completely changed the argument in a desperate attempt to save face and win an argument you've already lost by a landslide.

 

Punt.

Which makes me think the Colts fan base has (at least a little ) concern about the Colts QB depth .

Of coarse we do.   Our once in a generation qb retired at 29.  What fanbase wouldn't have concern.   But I feel better with Jacoby than a guy that's been arrested multiple times.

Kind of surprised, kind of not that he’s been released. Not surprised they released him, surprised they think he’ll clear waivers

 

They think Kelly will clear waives not because he's not wanted.    But because they've waited to the last minute.    Rosters for this week are mostly set.   Most teams won't want to make a move on a QB on a Thursday.      They might.    But the odds are better than if they had made their move public on Monday or Tuesday.

 

Smart,  strategic thinking.

That was not my question...

what I was getting at was could he decline the waiver claim and sign to Colts PS, and continue to decline claims there too to show good faith in Colts for showing faith in him.

 

No, a claim on a player with less than 4 years service gives that team the players rights.

 

Players with >4 years service immediately become FA's.

The QB needy teams can’t afford to take a risk this late in the weekly cycle

    • I liked it a lot, but I found that baseball purists did not like it as much. Even though the Yankees beat the Mets most of the time, most of the games were competitive and the games the Mets won brought good memories. I recall where I was when this happened. I remember walking in the street and I jumped up when utility man Matt Franco got this walk-off hit. My eyes glanced at a man sitting in his car, who screamed at the same time. This was around 1996 or so.    
    • Again in terms of projecting values out, this all depends on how we see Braden Smith valued.    I said to go high at $10M a year based on a few things:   1) If you asked many people is Braden Smith a top-5 RT, most would say no. I think he is. either way a top-5 RT slots in at an AAV of $10M a year right now   2) Most of the guys getting top $ at RT got that top dollar by getting it on the open market. Lane Johnson is the exception. However, the Eagles gave him that extension when there was originally talk about him moving to LT as Peters aged. The guys that signed extensions with their current teams got $10M a year or less.    3) This is to say I think Smith can totally get over $10M a year if he hits the open market and wants to test the waters. However, if the Colts looked to extend him now and give him financial security as a 2nd round pick that has not made much money yet in his career and did so in a year where the cap came down and a lot of players are going to take less money if they are not a superstar, I think him signing a deal averaging $10M a year would be a win for him and the Colts     At the end of the day, my entire point of this thread was to simply point out that us investing $50-$55M in a starting OL out of a future cap of around $200-$220M is very, very doable and arguably reasonable in terms of how Ballard likes to build through the trenches. Having an OL tie up 25% of your cap and a combined OL and QB tie up less than 40% of your cap for the next 3-4 years is actually very, very reasonable.   I have admittedly been a big advocate for Trent Williams. He is aging, sure. But he has shown no signs at all of slipping. And he even has one less year of wear and tear on his body from sitting out a year with the whole tumor fiasco where Washington really didn't do right by him with their medical team. So would I throw a 4 year deal at him with big money where the only guaranteed money was paid out in the first two years and then there were salaries on the back end that can easily allow a cut if the performance dips? Absolutely.   Either way, this was really to just get our base chatting about all this since the canned narrative everyone is spitting out is the same narrative that is being fed to fans from the media that says "they'll have too much tied up in their OL with the extension for Kelly and the upcoming extensions for Nelson and Smith." I'm just saying if we managed things the way guys like Mike Bluem have been, then we can comfortably invest in a top FA  LT if we wanted to without it being overly painful downstream. 
    • I personally do not like the idea of trying to come up with a stop gap or developmental guy at the most inportant position on the OL. Solidify that position with a dependable proven LT whether it  Villanueva or someone else. Same with DE. Find a proven pass rusher and pay him. Use the draft or WR, CB and solidifying other positions including OL. I think we are very close to being in  SB contention and 3 to 4 good players may push us over the top. We can't foolishly throw money at these guys but if we are prudent we have plenty of money to carry us.
    • Yeah, my little voice partly thinks the same (perhaps contract year type of performance). I just hate saying it out loud, as he was considered very very raw when drafted. He was used all over the place at USC, and relied way too much on his natural gifts instead of technique. Maybe he was a bit lazy, but it's also possible he was just raw, wasn't able to focus, and things are just now clicking. Or maybe he was lazy a bit, and finally grew up or matured enough to commit to his craft.    He's an interesting guy to follow. I could see it falling either way. I remember his recruiting out of HS (think he was out of Mainland) Thought for sure he'd end up at FSU, UF, or Auburn. My FSU and Auburn buds thought he was a lock lol. One of my FSU buds swore USC bought him a car lol. I was hoping ND would offer, but rumor was, he didn't have close to the grades needed.    
    • Hmmm I watched the show on  prime (all episodes) And Although I haven't seen many of the games from last year I found him to be pretty damn good and a very nice guy. I mean I wasn't a huge fan before but I think we got a winner at Qb and im looking forward to watching all year. Watch the show on prime  its worth the watch
