One impression I am getting is that this is a low priority thing to deal with as far as the Colts are concerned …….Or they wanted to see if people where gonna call Ballard to inquire about trading him .

This is an unusual situation. A 25-year-old  who seems to have the talent to get the job done, but because of a history of getting in trouble that has repeatedly delayed his progress through college and the start of this pro career doesn't yet have any pass attempts in an NFL regulation game. Can you think of any quarterback who at age 25 didn't have a single NFL pass attempt, yet went on to a successful career?

A lot of things could be happening. And keep in mind, if they did want to keep him, they have to pick a guy to cut too. If that were the case, they could be shopping the potential cut to other teams. It's a lot more than just adding or releasing a guy.

Really speaks to the talent level he has that he isn’t gearing up for the XFL right now.

 

He just looks like an NFL starting QB. He has that, dare I say, swag about him and has that sort of quick twitch athleticism and rifle arm that you traditionally see with NFL starters. It’s a look that sets them apart from backups. An “it” factor. He has it. Watch him lead a scoring drive and it’s obvious.

 

That’s why I’ve been intrigued by him since the first time I saw him in the first preseason game. I’d puke if he goes elsewhere and becomes a stud and we’re stuck with an average game manager.

Given he's acted right, and performed well, he'd get grabbed up quickly. I'd prefer to not see him on a opposing team lol. Regardless of if JB makes it or not, CK is simply a good prospect. I also think a small town like Indy, an organization like the Colts, and with a HC that has ties to his uncle, is the perfect place to help the kid mature and grow.

And the other teams were like.. Who??? You want what for him?

 

And Ballard replied: Don't you read the Colts forum? This guy's a star in the making.. Lol

I’m pretty sure that every team is aware of a guy who put up the 3rd most total yards in a single season in SEC history and a guy who has the highest score every recorded by SportsScience, beating out scores by guys like Brees, Mahomes, Mayfield, and Goff.

 

They know who he is.

And none picked him up when he was available

I wouldn’t value a cherry picked volume stat as a way of evaluating talent, especially college stats. Look at who is number 1 and 2 on that list.

 

Teams of course have an idea who he is, which makes the fact he’s not exactly been highly sought after telling. It won’t just be down to his off field antics. 

 

I’m sure he has talent, whether that can be translated is another matter. I’d like to see him kept and developed further.

 the colts picked him up, we dont know that no one else would have

 

two months passed between getting cut from denver and signing in indy, teams were probably waiting to get an idea of his suspension and what not.  ballard was just the first to act on him

Have you guys seen some of the backup's playing in recent games in this league? Not many of them look as athletic or accurate as CK. No doubt he would be picked up, especially after a decently strong showing in preseason. 

 

Sounds like he's practicing with the team today. My bet is he is on the 53 and we will carry 3 QB's for the rest of the year.

He signed a 1 year minimum contract .   If there were other teams in the mix,   it seems he would have been paid more

Correct. He doesn’t look like a backup when he plays. He’s the real deal and assuming he stays clean off the field he’s going to be a stud with some team. Just hope it’s with us.

CB signed him before we even knew what his suspension would be, the rest could have been waiting that out.  2 games still seems light for what he did to me

 

he was only on the market for 2 months, not that long for a guy that just got in trouble, again

He was cut in October.   Colts picked him up in may

Sounds like the best thing to do.

We just don't keep a QB on the practice squad.

Our worst roster player goes to the PS instead.

ok but his hearing was in march for first-degree criminal trespassing.  colts singed him two months later, no one was going to sign him in the meantime 

 

i dont think we can conclude that no one else was interested, they could have been waiting this out to see what happened.  ballard was the first to act

If teams thought he had great talent he would have been scooped up.    NFL players have done far worse and not got cut

 

He had a lot of uncertainty surrounding him and a looming suspension...and the Colts were a good spot because they (at the time) had a QB1 and QB2 on the roster...so they wouldn't be depending on him...and they of course had the connections.

I think you may be right

 

But, I truly hope they keep him

 

IF he is cut, there is more to this story than we all know

 

Maybe he has mashed potatoes for brains........

 

Maybe he is still a JERK

The Colts need to see what they have with Kelly. Jacoby is not a superbowl caliber QB, Hoyer is average at best. 

I disagree.   You have no way of knowing if Brissett can lead this team to the Superbowl.   Less of Kelly.   Jacoby is the QB of this team this season.   If not for AV, they would be 2-0.  I'll take what he is doing any day.  Brissett has a 108 rating right now.   Had over 113 in the preseason compared to Kelly's 94.7.    The football minds on the Colts team think Brissett is better than Kelly.   

 

I do hope they keep Kelly for future consideration.

    • At this time of year, every year, all of us have created a draft board.  How we think the draft will fall out.  Most of us also have a selection of players from that draft board that are the ones they especially like.  These are My Guys. I would like to issue a challenge.  Go back through your records for every year, and find:  A - your best draft prospect, B - your worst draft prospect, C - any of your prospects the Colts took, D - a late round prospect of yours that blossomed.   I'll start out with mine:   2015 Best - Andrus Peat, T, Stanford (Saints #13 overall, 3 pro bowls) Worst - Reese Dismukes, C, Auburn (undrafted, went nowhere) Colts - Zack Hodges, OLB, Harvard (UFA, didn't stick) Late - Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana (Falcons #73) 2016 Best - Ezekiel Elliot, RB, Ohio St (Cowboys #4 overall, 3 pro bowls) Worst - Su'a Cravens, S, USC Colts - Ryan Kelly, C, Alabama (Colts #18 overall) Late - Joe Schoebert, LB, Wisconsin (Browns #99, pro bowl) 2017 Best - Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson (Texans #12, 3 pro bowls) Worst - tie John Ross, WR, Ohio St / Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama Colts - none Late - Dan Feeney, G, Indiana (Chargers #71 overall) 2018 Best - Quentin Nelson, G, Notre Dame (#6 overall, 3 pro bowls) Worst - Arden Key, DE, LSU Colts - Quentin Nelson, G, Notre Dame Late - Kyzir White, S/LB, West Virginia 2019 Best - AJ Brown, WR, Mississippi Worst - Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson Colts - Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple / Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio St Late - Terry McLauren, WR, Ohio St 2020 Best - CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma Worst - Denzell Mims, WR, Baylor / Calvin Throckmorton, T, Oregon Colts - none Late - too soon to call
    • I think the Rams over paid but it’s still a win win for both sides. If the Rams get back to the SB it will be worth it, even a couple NFC championship games would justify the trade...if they win a championship it will definitely be worth it.  Detroit now has the ammo to help build a playoff contender. They won’t bc it’s Detroit lol but it was still a good trade by them. One of the few QB trades you see where both teams will probably come out ahead.    When I compare it to the Wentz trade, Ballard took the Eagles to the cleaners and got the better of the two QBs they had. Interested to see what Sirriani can do with Hurts.  That kid seems to be a class act. The way he handled being replaced by Tua was professional in every way.  I remember the reporter asking him 3min after the championship game vs Georgia ended how he felt being replaced and seeing Tua go out there and bring the team back.  I thought it was slimy to ask that question at that moment(should have waited until the press conference and let the kid celebrate with his team) and Hurts handled it with class. Stayed for another year, came in and I believe won the SEC championship for Bama then transferred after he graduated. I’m rooting for the guy and feel for him bc the Philly press and fans can be a bit harsh to say the least lol. 
    • At this point I wouldn't mind that. Seems like a good realistic scenario. Although... maybe Turner has moved up with his testing?
