Chad Kelly decision today?

Joe Montana? 

 

I’ve said I think he’s a better quarterback than JB, not better than anyone 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.

Now get him as familiar as possible to our offensive playbook and system...……………………………………………………..JUST IN CASE ! ………..GO COLTS !!!!!

Yeah...get him up to speed first, before Jacoby has his knee go bad.

(injury report says Jacoby practiced in full (knee)).

That is what scared everyone off.

These GMs love to play it safe...take no risks...just keep doing their safe jobs.

 

 

I think teams will gamble on risky guys, just a lot less on risky QBs. His talent was enough to secure the QB2 job in Denver (even with the history), it's just the continuance of the behavioral issues that scare folks. He simply needs to keep his nose clean for an extended period.

Nope. Settling for mediocrity doesn’t appeal to me. We’re an 8-8 team with Captain Game Manager out there.

Well...mediocrity is what we get with Mr. Game Manager...last in passing yards...and even those yards were largely YAC.

  I agree with you on Kelly having a higher ceiling. But I’ll wait to see if Jacoby can make all the throws, before I say he can’t  make them.

  Sitting under JB, Hoyer and Reich, can help him develop. I just see a diamond in the rough.

  Maybe those of us who think he has Franchise potential are wrong but I’m just glad he cleared wavers. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him start in the future. How far in the future? Who knows. Rogers waited 4 years.

    I’m still rooting for JB to have a great year.

Three teams lost starting qbs in the last week.  Not one of them saw this incredible talent from Kelly.   I guess you're right and the entire NFL is wrong.   Not one team willing to give absolutley zero for him.  Not even offer a higher practice squad salary.    The odds of every GM being wrong is slim.    But you keep wearing those Chad Kelly pajamas.    

 

At least you have good taste in music

Yes!  Glad to hear that Chad Kelly was signed to the Colts practice squad.  I like his potential and he is definitely an upgrade to Phillip Walker as the QB 3.  

 

I also say that with full support of Jacoby as our starting QB.  He is doing a fine job thus far in my opinion.   I'm encouraged by what I've seen over the past 2 weeks.  Some need to lighten up and let the whole season play out before condemning him.  The offense will evolve as our young receivers get some games under them.  Thus far, he has been much better protecting the football than Luck was which counts for a lot in my book.

You can't possibly know this season is going to be mediocre or not just 2 games in. If Vinatieri hadn't had a meltdown, we'd be 2-0.

 

And JB might have below average passing yards this year, but he'll also likely throw fewer than average interceptions.

 

In any case, I fully expect him to improve throughout the season, and since I lack your crystal ball, I am reserving judgment until more data come in.

WOW! 19 pages on a Chad Kelly thread. I thought I have seen it all in here until now lmao 

Just read this last page. The Kelly Fan Club can continue to dream. They were “this” close to abandoning the Colt’s ship though...  Now they can continue to pretend to be Colt’s fans while calling for Kelly to be given the QB1 job.  I bet if CK had gone to Pittsburgh & won the job they would have cheered for the Steelers over the Colts...

 

Notice how they gloss over the fact CK didn’t get picked up or twist the truth to fit their narrative. I’m glad Frank & CB want to bring him along slowly though.  Like someone said upthread, we “might” have a diamond in the rough.

Yes, you are right, of course. Here's a quote:

 

"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.’’

 

https://nypost.com/2019/09/08/why-jacoby-brissett-has-a-big-backer-in-bill-parcells/

Well, in all fairness, he said he never HEARD about JB being smart, he didn't say he didn't READ it.

I'm glad the Colts were able to sign Chad to the practice squad and I look forward to seeing what's next for him. But, I don't think the Chad Fan Club should take any shots about what they have or haven't heard about Jacoby's intelligence when there's so much to be heard about Swaaag.

If you knew Chad, this is a pretty normal night/behavior for him. He's just an idio t, plain and simple. He has the world by the nuts thanks to his uncle and he can't keep his nose clean. Literally and figuratively.

Pretend Colts fan? Because I have an extremely strong opinion that Kelly is a better QB than JB?

For all the people bad mouthing JB

   good morning adult GIF by Dr. Donna Thomas Rodgers 

 

For the record, I'm not bad mouthing JB as a human being. He's obviously a great leader and teammate and is a good citizen and I'm the one who said that he's smart, which started all this. 

 

I just think he has no business being the starting QB of a playoff contender.

No GM in the NFL wanted this guy.  

 

How do you know that? The FO set it up so that teams were already set before Kelly hit the wire. You think the Steelers would have still chosen Lynch if Kelly were available on the waiver wire? hahahahah no freaking way. Lynch is an aggressively awful QB.

Here in NY metro area I have actually heard of fistfights between Eli manning fans and Daniel Jones fans ……...Are there fistfights going on in the City of Indianapolis between those for and against Kelly a back-up QB ? And will this be the busiest thread on this board this year ?

But Chad Kelly does. 

 

goodfellas laughing GIF

 

He has a better chance of winning games as a starter than JB does. He's the better quarterback on the field. Kelly has beaten the absolute hell out of people everywhere he's gotten on the field as the starter. Led his team to the JUCO National Championship, led crappy Ole Miss to a Sugar Bowl win and twice beat the No.1 ranked team in the country. JB hasn't done anything except be at the right place at the right time twice in the NFL and be a mediocre college QB.

 

But ya, there's no way Chad Kelly, the guy who has the highest score EVER recorded by SportsScience, beating out guys like Brees, Mahomes, Goff, etc., could be a better QB than Jacoby "I've only ever had three 300+ yard games after the age of 18" Brissett.

Every single gm in the NFL disagrees with your mediocre opinion

 

NFL coaches and GMs are some of the most risk-averse people on the planet. If they'd rather play it safe with the trash that make up two-thirds of the league's quarterbacks than take a chance on an out-of-this-world talent with a checkered past, it's their loss.

I guess every GM in the league is wrong.     Odd

Really?  Why do Cam Newton  and Jamies Winston have jobs?  Why was Manziel drafted in the first round?  Why was Rothlisberger not cut?  Nice try

    • Apparently it's a two year deal for Fisher, however the second year can be voided by the colts.
    • Age and health would be the argument for Smith and Leonard right now.  It’s not all about position.
    • It is my understanding the Colts grade every player on every pay.  Their has to be a method.  It was my understanding, i don't KNOW, that more teams than not subscribe to PFF, for their own reasons. Perhaps they too snark at their numbers.    The story i recently read/heard about a fumble recovery for a touchdown turned one DE's weekly grade from the 60's to near 90, well, that is very concerning if true.  The best way to see if someone is any good was back when i watched every Colts play in super slow-mo, sometimes frame by frame to see what really happened. Unfortunately i couldn't compliment that with all-22.  AC looked BAD for his 1st 3 seasons in pass-pro, and Andrew was terrible with timing and accuracy in the short game. Based on Harbaugh's pre-draft hype, and others of course "not since Elway," that part of his game disgusted me.  PFF can't reflect how much benefit or damage is done by the overall effectiveness of those around you, or good or bad coaching. Ras isn't everything but is a very solid place to start.
    • Nate only missed 1 kick in the Divisional round loss against the Patriots, it was a what would've been a then career long 54 yarder when he was rushed on to the field to attempt it as time was expiring due to the Chargers having burned all their timeouts. Had he made that kick, it would've only tied the game, not given San Diego the lead or win. He converted all 3 of his extra point attempts in that game.   He was brutal in the 2009 Divisional round loss to the Jets, he had only missed 3 kicks all season and missed 3 in that game alone, although one of them was a  57 yard attempt that would've tied his career long. He had already missed a 36 yarder and that Bolts were up 7-0 when Norv trotted him out to attempt that long one at the end of the half, and that miss combined with the earlier one seemed to scramble his eggs. Later in the game while down by 10, he badly missed a 40 yard attempt and although the Chargers got another touchdown, they ended up losing by 3.    He missed when he hit the upright from 48 yards out in the 2007 Divisional round victory at Indy and in the only AFCCG he played in, Kaeding accounted for all 12 of the Chargers' points by going 4 for 4 against the undefeated Patriots in the snow flurries at Foxboro.
    • You're probably right.  But a franchise LT is the more important position.  More than RT, and even an All Pro LB.   I'm not saying he'll sacrifice either of them in order to sign Fisher long term.  But I think that once they see that Fisher can play, they'll want to wrap him up long term.  He won't be cheap either.   I think it was on one of the podcast they pointed out where all of the LTs for the playoff teams were drafted.  Getting one that works out past the first round is pretty rare.  And we probably won't even have a first rounder next year.
