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.

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.

He had no reps last week. It was not even an option 

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.

    • So the more I have been thinking about this the more I became interested in hearing what the forum thought.    I actually believe that, and I have no evidence, that Ballard may really like Jalen Hurts. You may ask why?   Hurts was ultra productive in his college career.      Hurts played for Saban at Alabama and learned how to carry himself like a professional.    Even after losing his starting spot, he stayed and supported Tua. When needed he stepped in and won the SEC title game.    He was named Captain of the Oklahoma team after transferring and earning the teams respect.    He then learned offensive football from the best offensive mind in college football, Lincoln Riley.    He then went on to complete 68.7% of his passes for 32 TDS and 8 INTS   He led OU to a Big12 Title and a CFP Appearance.    Even when OU got run out the building he carried himself in a way that showed maturity and confidence. Keep in mind Ballard was at that game.    Career record as starter 39-3   He seems to check on the boxes that Ballard and Reich have for a QB, on and off the field. I also think he could develop into a very good QB.    Thoughts.   
    • I think he has good potential   If we draft him at 13, I wont be upset   If he shows extremely well at combine, senior day, and interviews, he wont be on the board at 13   LAC need a QB   Carolina need a QB   Someone behind us that need a QB to develop, that may move up before us   I dont see us getting to a QB that we want at 13                  
    • This thread has been cleaned up and I'm reopening.   For the record, any thread about the colts qb is not fair game for bashing and complaining.  It isn't.  Please read and respond to the OP.   if you only want to complain and vent, please use this thread for that In addition, if you feel someone is derailing the thread please report it or at a minimum, ignore it.  But DO NOT derail the thread further with your complaints about complaining. And don't start taking personal shots at people because you disagree with them   That's just as much of a problem.   We aim to provide a place for everyone to say what they want to say but, there is a structure to discussions and we ask that you respect each other. If the topic is not for you, choose another.        
    • I would agree with that. Ethics and professionalism go hand in hand quite often.
