How can you honestly waive Chad Kelly with the way Hoyer played today?  Hoyer has a noodle arm and is going to throw a pick or three a game.

You have nothing to lose at this point. Watch us beat houston again and still lose the division. This team is playing like they didnt even care. Is Pagano secretly calling the plays? I put the last 2 losses on Reich. He is calling * poor games lately. Good thing we fired our oline coach from last year! The oline is doing amazing!

Sure why not go with Kelly?  He probably wouldn't do worse than Hoyer.

I'm willing to try anything at this point.

I'm in on Kelly now too. I've seen Hoyer play like hot garbage for 7 straight quarters. I have no confidence in his leadership or decision making. None!

I think Reich would call a better game if he had better players. Hoyer is a back up to a back up in this case. Chester Rogers is a project from the get go. If you look at that situation from the receiver stand point, look who the passers are. Defense is descent for part of the game, then they get no offensive help. There was a reason Hoyer was available. JB was traded to us for a reason.

Colts have to aquire good players, not projects or developemental players. This team has never shown the ability to make players better or more complete. Belechek does it all the time. Just saying the truth.

I love Reich.  Never have I once criticized him.  He’s dealt with a lot and has done countless good things for the franchise.

 

He has been outcoached the past 2 weeks, particularly with his late-game play calling.  He’s starting to hurt the team with the Vinny loyalty, although part of that falls on Ballard’s shoulders.

It's easier to coach when you have talent on the roster. The QB position needs to be addressed, it is by far the biggest weakness on this team.

Vinny should be gone tomorrow. No excuses to keep him around

Its hard to coach a garbage QB to throw to a depleted Receiver core

Hoyer kind of reminds me of Kerry Collins when we had him.  I just feel he has no pocket mobility at all.

Starting to look like the Colts just didn't want Chad Kelly going to the XFL!

Was he planning on doing so?

He's also a 'lobber'. His passes barely get there or they're picked.

Doesn't seem to have much pocket awareness either.

 

Solid QB for a drive or a quarter if your main guy goes down. But a huge liability the longer he's in there.

You think he would have done what? With the game to win he calls 3 fades like we employ Manning, Brady or Luck. He should have put him in higher % throws not fades to the guy we just signed off the PS. What he called today defies the argument if he had better players. Had he ran it up the guy 4 times, we could say that but not how it was called today.

Vinny must go, he just has to. Respect is being lost for Reich and if he doesn’t watch himself, he is going to start seeing locker room troubles.

Sure, it is.  But, at some point, the excuses have to stop.  When the Colts were winning earlier in the year, barely squeaking games out, everyone said, "Just enjoy the win."  I enjoyed the wins, but I think it's also reasonable to point out the flaws and hold both players and coaches accountable.

 

Today was the Dolphins.  They were giving up 32 PPG.  They have one of the worst run defenses in the NFL.

 

The Colts supposedly have a great offensive line and a talented trio of backs.  Very little creativity in the running game, and it was under-utilized at the end of the game when the Colts still had time and timeouts.

I don't know...Phillip Walker is the QB for the Houston Roughnecks, so I'm sure if the Colts had not signed Kelly he'd be in the XFL right now. If the Colts are not going to give him a chance, maybe he'd be better off going someplace where he could play and probably be a star player!

Might actually get a chance if he does if I was the coach of this team I would have Benched Hoyer at halftime.

the chiefs win doesn’t look very impressive now that tennessee has done it too. we have one impressive win against the texans at home. we are a below average team talent wise with good coaching( although it hasnt been good as of late). we will end up at 8 wins most likely and no playoffs which is worst case scenario as our pick wont be that good.

I have a suspicion that Frank would rather win ugly with Hoyer than have Chad Kelly come in, put up some good numbers and get a solid win and then have a QB controversy the rest of the season!

Honestly the NFL as a whole isn't a great product right now.

Brissett will be back next week and we can all watch those familiar crossing patterns over the middle, the check downs to the RBs and TEs, the handoffs to the RBs and the screen passes to the RBs, TEs and WRs.

I didn't watch one second of yesterday's horrible game (thank god), but just by looking at stats and highlights and who we lost too, we should never use Brian Hoyer again. As a backup, he can't even beat the dolphins if Brissett is injured. He also has no upside. From now on, start Chad Kelly if Brissett misses any more time to see what we have in him. He'll be at least as good as Hoyer anyway with our O-Line and running game. If Brissett comes back, make Kelly his permanent backup and Hoyer the 3rd stringer for the rest of the season and release him after the season is over. The Brian Hoyer Veteran experiment has failed.

    • Im in that boat with you draft a mid round sleeper QB to develop with kelly. And trade for a QB capable of playing elite behind our line. Foles, Stafford, Rivers. Someone to transition to the next.
    • I don't pay attention to the Redskins, so maybe Haskins is the worst QB of all time, but I think they'll at least give him another year to develop. I completely expect Bengals to take Burrow at one, Redskins take Young at two, and then Dolphins take either Tua or maybe Herbert at three. Dolphins can easily trade up for the guy they want if they aren't number three, considering the bumblebees and cows gave them two more first rounders this year. I don't see the Jets wanting a QB, but the Bears will be chomping at the bit. We're lucky that most crap teams this year are seemingly ok with their QB situations
    • Yes , if you work that for 1 season , he would have 96 ff. LOL
    • Foles didnt get a fair shake imho. If we could trade for him i would. I think he can be elite in the right system but he is starting the back half of his career. Would have to be a win now situation. Him and Frank have the chemistry.
    • I think this acquisition might very well turn out to be a very timely and rewarding waiver claim.  He certainly has played very well on the two teams he has played for this year.  He also had a great preseason for the Bills who also put in a claim.  If he does the same for the Colts the rest of the way we will probably tender him and he will be the frontrunner to be our new placekicker.  We might have gotten lucky again as we did with Moore last year.  Lets hope so.
