Chad Kelly decision today?

Recommended Posts

So there was not a team in the NFL who thought he was worth picking up for nothing either.

I'm a bit surprised because he showed some promise in the preseason.

He'll be signed to the practice squad.  When Ballard does these things he's usually right.

Nobody claimed him so just sit back and wait on the notice of him being signed to the PS.

Freaking perfect. God it's funny watching folks scream from their soapbox....and then change the rhetoric when that view becomes exposed. 

 

It helps to just relax and not get so bent on pointing fingers.

Was for me, long ago. I predicted the scenario and outcome so many of us here believed would eventually be reality. It came to pass. Now we can move forward, and develop CK properly over time.

So does our PS now outscore our first team in practice?

Just hope he understand the opportunity presented and doesn't have another knucklehead moment.

Don't really know much about Chad Kelly, but Tom Brady was a 6th round pick, Russell Wilson was passed by every team in the league until round 2, I think, and at least 6 teams passes on Mahomes, I think. Just because he passed through the waivers does not mean he doesn't have the potential to be a great QB.

Pretty much, hopefully we get a season with him, and while Hoyer's contract is 3 years, I do think we can cut loose next year with no dead cap.

And the fact that 31 teams didn't claim him for basically free should finally shut down the notion that we could trade Chad Kelly for anyone.  Thank goodness.

But that's what it means almost always.  Don't know what the odds are, but they're far less than QBs selected in later rounds as opposed to being mr irrelevant and getting cut from two teams.  Is there even an example that comes close to that?

I didn't think he'd clear wavers especially with the QB situation in the league right now.

Glad he cleared waivers.  Time to move forward.

 

NEXT!

So the entire NFL looked at this guy and thought, "No, it wouldn't be worth signing him for literally zero." If I'm the Saints, Steelers, Jets, Jags, etc, I'm jumping all over this guy. Who the hell is the Jets qb now anyway?

Oh well, better for us I guess

The way I understand the practice squad is if a team wants to sign him now he has to be on their roster for at least 3 maybe 4 games.  I don't know the number.  If he does get the offer he could take it, if he so choses, to Ballard to see if he would like to keep him and put him on the Colts roster.  Theoretically Ballard could still have the opportunity to keep him if he and Kelly agree and they think it's good for both parties.  Just another chapter in the Chad Kelly story.

I honestly don't think it matters, IMO Kelly's the new Philip Walker. And barring injury, Jacoby is the starter for the remainder of this year, no matter what. If, upon evaluation after the season, they feel Brissett isn't the long term answer, I fully expect that they'll draft someone.

Why would I be upset? I want him on the Colts. I’m not a Giants or a Jets fan.

The Jets & Steelers were the only two possibilities. But with either he’d be behind in getting to know their playbooks.  With the Jets, they have their young starting QB.  So no real starting future there. They still could double back in a week or two but I think it was a situation that Kelly would have struggled in & possibly been his last opportunity after failing. 

 

The Steelers would have had the same playbook problems as the Jets but Ben is definitely out for a year & Rudolph may not be the answer. A much better opportunity in my opinion. Still would have been hard for Kelly to beat Rudolph out with no TC though. 

 

The best thing for CK is to stay on our practice squad & learn & master the playbook. Pick JB & Hoyer’s brains.  Keep working.  My biggest fear with CK isn’t his talent but his off field choices. Even if he was the starter now I can see either success or failure causing him to mess up.  He needs a year of learning & maturing.  

 

Then come out next year lighting things up.  Show Frank & CB he’s ready for the QB1 or QB2 job.  Putting up good numbers vs 2nd, 3rd, or no string players (running vanilla defenses) wasn’t proof enough.  A year learning & maturing is just what he needs.  Glad we got to keep him.

Or perhaps the NFL teams who needed QB’s on the waiver wire already got theirs before Wednesday afternoon when Kelly was put on the wire?

 

And thank god they did.

Any team can sign him at any time. However, the player can let his current team know, and they thwart the action by activating him to their squad, if desired. If not, and another team signs him, they have to cut a player off their 53 man roster to add him.  They also have to pay the signed PS guy 3 NFL checks, minimum (NFL type pay, not PS pay); even if they end up cutting the signed PS guy at any time before the 3 weeks are up.

Joe Montana? 

 

I’ve said I think he’s a better quarterback than JB, not better than any other starting QB in the league. I will still maintain that opinion. JB has never kicked anyone’s butt by himself at any level except high school probably. 

 

Kelly has the more elite skill set and the higher ceiling. I’m still unclear how some of you fail to see that. JB is a better leader, better person, and is seemingly much smarter, which is why he and Kelly are sitting where they are right now. 

 

JB isn’t the answer. By god I wish he was because that means we’d be dominating. But he just isn’t.  Eventually when teams start stacking the box against us and dare our mediocre QB to beat them through the air, JB being unable to impose his will on defenses is going to kill us.

    • The root of the problem goes back to Grigson, who couldn't draft an O-Line for Luck to save his life. It ultimately forced Luck to retire and it put us in the situation we are in today. We went from a possible SB contender to a team that is struggling to make the playoffs. Don't let Ballard fool you, it is about one person, it was about Luck just like it was about Manning. The QB is half the value of the team. I'm guessing Luck was worth 5 wins this year. We have been set back 3 years and our QB of the future is not on this roster.   Basically, we're not doing crap until we fill the QB position with solid play, and that could take years. I'm at the point where I don't care until I see who we draft. Rest of this season is meaningless unless Chad Kelly starts a game or two and dominates.
    • Brissett is a bad QB. He takes too long to throw the ball because he's scared to make a mistake. Won't throw deep. Won't scramble. Poor field vision. Makes an elite O-Line average at pass-blocking. Has regressed since teams have tape on him. Has trouble putting up any sort of yards or points unless we run for 100+ yards per game. Can't carry the team or lead it to victory. He's easily replaceable. Potential all but gone. He's done like dinner. Not even fun to watch.   I don't care who we draft at QB, anything is better than what we currently have. At least a new QB will have potential and a new skillset. There will be some hope. We're in a horrible spot right now, and another year of Brissett would drop attendance faster than a skydiver from an airplane. I certainly can't go through another year of this.   You at least have to give the illusion of hope to draw me in. A new QB does that. With Brissett, there is none.
    • It’s all good crazy coLt we are both colts fans and rooting for the same team. I don’t wanna argue with a colts fan. I will save it for a pats fan or Texans fan. I just wanted to defend why I was saying what I was saying. It hits a nerve to me when people criticize other people’s colts related threads no matter how monotonous it’s become, even if that’s not how you meant it.  Have a merry Christmas   
    • Dude, u call this bashing?  I barely said anything about the guy and merely asked the question if it was him or coaching. How is that bashing?  And by you complaining that this thread was started you basically said that this thread is unwelcome. Am I losing my mind here people or what??  Again im not sure it’s brissett that’s why I’m asking. There is anecdotal evidence it could be him but I’m not so sure. It could be other teams are dialing more pressure near the end of the games or we are running too much and getting stuffed to keep the clock running. I’m not trying to argue here I’m just basically defending what I wrote. 
    • I'd want Ron Rivera but I think he'll end up somewhere in the NFL or a big college HC position.
