Chad Kelly decision today?

Recommended Posts

If Kelly does get cut, little chance he ends back up on our practice squad...

Steelers, Saints, Jags... lose their star QB's... and now Jets even lose their 2nd string QB.

Kelly might actually get a chance to start for the jets if we trade him there.

Yea,  I just read mono can be a 3-7 week recovery.  I couldn't believe it!  Who knew an 8th grade kissing disease could be a season killer?

Oh ROFL, can you imagine if he actually stuck and started producing, how much that would honk off Patriots fans?  I might be all for a Jets trade for that reason alone.

I would rather have Jacoby than Baker Mayfield. That kid has shown nothing and was the top pick in the draft.

If he is good enough to pose a threat to the Patriots as the QB on the Jets, that would honk off a lot Colts fans lol

Baker has pro bowlers & first round talent all around him & only completing 50% of his throws tonight.  The Jets ineptitude has him leading but he’s been struggling this season.

Here in NY Metro area Jets fan dreaming of trading for a QB who is already here in NY . But the fans wishes may not be the same as the Jets owner and GM .

If you play contact sports if your not completely healed you can rupture your spleen and die.

I hear some of you people's comments about Kelly's off the field issues but he didn't steal crab legs from a grocery store and rape a woman like one qb did. And that guy is an NFL  starter.  Kelly was/is an arrogant guy. He doesn't take any crap.  So has he gotten into some trouble,  sure,  but it was really minor stuff. I think it would be hilarious if he gets traded to a team in your division and becomes a thorn in your side for the next decade.

I think Kelly should be our starter with Brissett as backup, trade Hoyer!!!!

 

Hoyer is Hoyerible. If he could be traded, the Pats would have done it. Frankly I'm still surprised we picked him up.

I’m such a homer I do take it personally.  I’m all for this team winning.  By any means necessary. JB is 1-1 but has done enough to be 2-0 both road games.  Yet he gets no credit with some. Sure he deserves criticism. Yeah it’s wise to stay cautious. But give Frank & JB the chance to grow together.  If Frank feels we need to make a change, I trust his judgment. Regardless, I’m choosing to enjoy the ride.

Great comeback reply. Thank you. I enjoy passion and rationale at the same time. Certainly willing to let Frank mold a new QB into the role providing he shows ability and upside. The minute those two things go away, gotta change. JB has certainly done enough to be worthy of further observation, but we also have to be realistic in the approach. If JB falters, you can’t ride the horse until it dies, this isn’t a generational QB were talking about, none of the QB’s on the team are. But if JB has a hiccup, you seriously have to look at the guy behind him. The team has enough assists to win now. Let’s not become too attached.

I honestly think Baker is super talented but immature. He will be ok if he gets that fixed.

Can we loan Kelly to the Jets for as long as Darnold is out and then take him back, then we can see how Kelly does in the NFL and decide if he is better or worse than JB once and for all lol get it done Ballard!

It would be interesting if the NFL had a loan mechanism, but I don't think it would be workable.

Mono in an adult is serious issue, especially for an athlete in a contact sport.  the spleen swells a lot and takes a longer period to reduce back to normal.  He could feel fine but with an enlrged spleen and contact involved in football, he risks a ruptured or lacerated spleen and he'd be done for the year....  Bet his recovery is longer part of 7 weeks.

I'm not.  Hoyer is not here for what he can do ON the field.  He's a mentor.  His job is to help Brissett and the rest of the team prepare for games by running the scout team, working with Brissett on issue areas and helping with film study.

 

Hoyer survived for several seasons as an NFL starter by doing everything JB7 needs to learn right now.  Being quick, decisive, and a smart passer allowed him a couple winning seasons even despite having practically no arm strength or mobility. 

 

I think the hope is that JB7, as well as possibly the new quarterback if we draft one, will learn from Hoyer and absorb some of his wisdom.  it's not a bad use of the QB2 slot.  And it's something Chad Kelly is just not capable of at all.

I fully agree. Have a 12-14 round draft, have your preseason roster at 120, allow your active roster at 60 with everyone active, set up up a scout team league. Whether or not it makes money or not, who cares if you’re developing players that were on the fringe. You get to send down the Hogan’s, the Cameron Wake’s, Joe Theismans, Warren Moons and countless others, whether from the Canadian league or some other form. Get them health insurance, appropriate training staff, a salary that is just like the AA-AAA baseball teams get, just enough to buy a pair of underwear now and then. There has to be some business model for the nfl that could work to groom the kids who just weren’t quite ready after the draft year but with 1-3 years of effective minor league coaching, could come up and help the main team at some point and the team controls that groups movement for 3 seasons. Idk, just seems logical.

With the physicality of the game and the penchant for injury very few NFL caliber athletes are going to be happy with the idea of burning their bodies for years at low pay just to get to the NFL level as a pro.

 

The reason this stuff works for the MLB and NHL is that a dozens the guys at the highest developmental level could play as a full fledged pro if the situation called for it.  I'm not sure the same talent pool exists in football, AAF notwithstanding.

I understand the difference between the NFL and the MLB. I’m not sure what the answer is. Maybe developmental leagues that offer film study, walk through, light contact drills, weight training etc... Develop like OTA’s and training camps. Give the teams access and control of movement over these guys while in such a program. Idk, seems like teams could develop those kids that were just a tad under the threshold of making the 53, no room on a practice squad for the position perhaps and unknown to other teams for their practice squad. Or increase the practice squads, that would probably work come to think of it. Make room for 8-10 players for each side of the ball and 1-2 special team types. I’d also like to see a way that teams can drop a guy from the 53 (would like to see it be 60) and designate a couple as safe to the team so as not to get poached from the PS. I have a lot of wants :hat:

    • Go with Brissett against the Saints.  There is still a shot at the playoffs.   Assuming we lose that game, start Kelly the last 2 games.  There is no downside.   It gives the fans what they want.  It gives the coaches and Ballard a look at what Kelly is.  Worst case is that we lose both games and gain draft position.   It's not tanking.    If Kelly doesn't get some playing time, I think we go into next season with Jacoby as the starter and Hoyer as the back up again.  They signed Hoyer to a 3 year $12 million contract with $9 million guaranteed.  
    • One of two things will happen with Luck. He'll either return next year (I can see Irsay making a plea to him based on our QB position and so we don't have to draft a QB) or he'll stay permanently retired. This is a perfect chance for him to return where INDY will welcome him back with open arms. It's next year or never for Luck.
    • Another wide or TE! Why? JB would not throw the ball to them unless it was to late! JB is to timid. He's scared to fail. Therefore, we have to have another QB. If we don't, i believe it will be major mistake. Oh, for all of you JB hine kissers, if you don't like threads like this don't read them. I don't care what you dislike! If you can't see the weakness in JB then ....... WOW!
    • Last time he was seen was at the Colts facility during the bye week. He was JACKED! Looked bigger, like a baby Hulk.
    • Chad Kelly needs to play the final 3 games. Houston and Tenn are both 8-5 and will face Sunday, so we are eliminated anyway. Play Kelly and see what you have in him. If we're lucky, he'll look great and we won't have to draft a QB early in the draft next year. Nothing to gain from starting Brissett and Hoyer. Brissett is regressing and Hoyer is who he is. See what you have in Kelly.
