Colts should have gone to Kelly in the 4th

Recommended Posts

Hoyer was horrible, that was obvious. By the 4th it was a sure bet that if we needed a play he wouldn't make it. At the end of the game when he kept tossing the ball to the back endzone there was open space for him to run and pick up 6-8 yards, he chose a jump ball. Kelly has a much higher up side and he's not afraid to tuck it and run. We should have gone to the bull pen, our starter didn't have it..

So many geniuses on the forum. I wonder why F. Reich or Ballard didn’t think of this. One or both should be fired.

They should just be shot at dawn...........  

 

 

SNARKINESS - OFF

 

We wont see Kelly this year, unless there is a major injury to JB.

 

If we lose the next 4 games......  and JB has bad games.......  we STILL wont see Kelly

 

You cant really put in Kelly without practice........  

 

Hoyer, looked like a guy that didnt take practice reps this week with the starters.......

 

Timing is important..... 

 

I would like to see Kelly get a chance.... ONLY if JB stumbles for multiple games or gets hurt

I would be all for giving Chad Kelly the second string reps in practice, and then seeing what he can do. However, you saw how bad hoyer was when Brissett took all the reps even though they kept him out vs the dolphins. Yes. They let Brissettt have most of the teams first reps this past week, and then held him out vs the dolphins. 

 

Who throws it to the endzone 3 damn times in a row and THEN on 4th down you try to move the sticks? What a frustrating game.

Yeah it's crazy how some folks think it's like grade school football where you can 'wing it' when it comes to real NFL football.

I’m all for putting in a QB that had zero snaps in practice. 
 

It’s too early for this stuff.

Actually saw Joe Tiller do that more than a few times at Purdue late in games. Very frustrating.

Nope, not without the reps in practice. If there's any chance Brissett won't play, Kelly needs some reps this week in practice to get him ready.

Hoyer was terrible but the the final drive was still within one score, in the red zone (where we've been very productive) with time on the clock. 

 

Dont love the playcalling, understand  and accept the explanations tho.  Obviously the outcome stunk.  But the team came within short Ebron route of having a shot at winning.

 

Overcame 3 ints and "the nail in the coffin" (vinny's new 70-30 nickname.  It can be positive or negative.  The fun is we can never know which nail or which coffin til after the kick, but it's always fitting .....(love u vinny,  HOF regardless).

 

It's a bad loss, but its Tuesday, time to bury it.  Seasons on the line in the very near future.  This dropping (pun intended) is behind us.

 

Swag (we need to workshop that one) will get his chance eventually just wasn't his week.

What does that mean? If Hoyer had gotten hurt would they not have played Kelley at QB or would they forfeit the game because he did not get any Reps. If Reps are important then how does he not get reps since he may have to play in the game. Hoyer was awful but you leave Kelley on the bench because he did not get reps? That explanation makes zero sense. It makes about as much sense as the excuses for Hoyer not trying to get us a first down when we were on the 13 yard line.

I guess Kelly gets a chance to play if Jacoby is injured and Hoyer gets concussed into unconsciousness....now where did I put that slingshot?

He was the emergency option.

Final drive within one score + Hoyer had 3 td passes the week before +Kelly no reps with the nbr 1's all adds up to it would have taken a major set of , well, you know, to put him in the game.

Wish they would have though...just to possibly get a glimpse of does Kelly have "it" - a specialness about him.

In all fairness, I can see why Kelly didn't get any reps. They were doing two things this past week-testing Brissett to see if he could play and prepare Hoyer. That must have left little window for Kelly to get reps.

But even with that, I wish they would have given Kelly a series or two. Barring that, I sure would like to know if Reich mentioned to Hoyer, during the timeouts, that the under routes were open once they got to the 16.

I admit, I would have liked to see him in some game action too.    However since we were in the game the whole time, I understand why he didn't see action.

Okay, Reich & Ballard do indeed "know more than we do", but let's not downplay the post altogether. I was shocked we didn't go Kelly at HALF. It was CLEAR that Hoyer wouldn't get anything going. The only reason we still had a game in the fourth is because... well it's Miami. I will say, though: I didn't know how much (or how little) practice time Kelly got. Doesn't that happen sometimes though? I think it was worth the risk... I mean how much worse could the QB play have gotten? We literally only needed AVERAGE QB play. He looked good preseason.

 

This one leaves a sour taste in my mouth because I feel like we surrendered it by not playing Kelly.

CK should have played the 2nd half, knowing what Hoyer did.

Cal Dr Who and he can give the team a ride "back" to half-time.

    • I'll put it this way...if it weren't for Ballard's drafts and FA signings, we'd be 2-11, most likely.   Lots of reasons we're 6-7, but primarily, it's because Ballard drafted and built this roster with Andrew Luck as the QB.  Luck with healthy WRs (Hilton, Funchess, Campbell, Pascal, etc.) and our TEs, plus the running game and we'd be 11-2, most likely.  The missed kicks by AV wouldn't have cost us close games, because we would have had bigger leads.   Losing Luck, the numerous serious injures and JB not having weapons at the skill positions has contributed to the 6-7 record.   Now, I am disappointed in our defense...yes, there have been injuries, but nothing close to what we've had on the offensive side of the ball.  I expected our defense to be much better this year.   Then, there's the kicking game, but we all know the problem with that without going into detail.   Get some proven veteran offensive skill players for JB to work with next season, and add that to the running game and we win more games and put more points on the board.   I do feel that a QB will be drafted and prepared to take over in 2021.  Hopefully we sign some veterans on both sides to help these young guys.  The foundation is there, now it's time to build with quality, proven players.   Also disappointed in our OL play and I have no thoughts on way they have regressed.
    • Nuts to the 2nd rounder! If we are taking a QB, we want the highest 1st rounder possible...ransom the farm to move up.
    • Johnson had more yards Sunday in three catches then Cain has had with the Steelers and colts combined. Johnson also has better measurables then Cain. He is faster and has a better vertical. Now maybe we could of had both right now.  I think Jacoby has way more trust in Johnson then he had in Cain. Which is understandable because he worked with Johnson on the scout team last year. Johnson had opportunities to sign elsewhere and decided to stay here because of Reich. 
    • Is that bad that he is adding players when someone goes down?
    • Will drew brees break peyton manning td record this week.  How funny/ ironic/ fixed is it that he throws 5 td last week vs a great defense and happens to be playing the Colts on prime time to put him position to break it. Brady is 5 behind.
