He did look pretty fast in his preseason games. Part of me hopes the Colts trade Brissett but not until they see what they have in Kelly and Eason.

Big deal and probably not a true statement. We need QBs that can make the right reads and throw the ball accurately.

Ah yes, our resident ray of sunshine, *, and vinegar just can't avoid negative and hollow platitudes on a single post.....

Did you even bother to read the article? It sounds like Chad might be hitting the sauce again.

If you assume things like that, based on a most likely bored 20 something guy, stating he thinks he's the second fastest at his position, and playfully posts "race me". Well.....I'll infer that you are a stick in the mud, with a corn cob up your *. 

 

Your flawed lack of logic works both ways.

Right, because the guy who's supposed to be learning to live a clean life with humility above all else decided to post something boastful to social media on a Friday night. Sure sounds like a reasonable take that it's a guy sliding back into his old patterns.

Cdga doesn't have reasonable takes. He might be the biggest troll on the site and that's saying something.

 

A guy claims he is 2nd fastest QB in the league, he might be, who knows? He is pretty fast.

 

Far cry from it being a reasonable take, that he is hitting the sauce. But whatever to each his one I guess.

Hey, ALL of me hopes the Colts trade or cut Brissett...it can't happen too soon. Brissett was lousy last year and needs to be gone...he had his shot. The only good thing he has ever done for the Colts is getting us the first overall pick which became Andrew Luck.

He must have forgot about Watson.  Love the confidence but when 3rd stringers spout off like this it makes me laugh. Focus on making the squad full time and go from there. I think he is good as gone.  I just don’t understand guys like this.  I would think videos of him working out and throwing accurate passes would be more beneficial than challenging every freaking starter in the league.  Whatever, will be over soon.

I think you meant his 2017 season starting for us turned into the 3rd overall pick which eventually turned into Quinton Nelson and a host of other players. 

 

Theres no connection — none — between JB and Andrew Luck.

I think too many posters here are reading way, WAY too much into way, WAY too little. 
 

It’s been the off-season from Hell and we’re all dying for some real quality football content, and this is what we get....   so people are annoyed.

 

I seriously doubt that Ballard or Reich called him to ask him what was he doing with that tweet.   I think this is a big fat Nothing Burger.

Found this list and I forgot about Kyler Murray(so did the author of the list).

Unless Kelly can run sub-4.5, he’s probably not as fast as he thinks

He’s probably The fastest QB on our roster, which isn’t saying much.  Eason and Brissett ran the 40 in around 4.9.  They used an hourglass to time Rivers.

 

It’s a shame we won’t see training camp.  Personally I think Kelly beats out Eason if it’s a fair competition.  But I also think the writing is on the wall and the decision is pretty much set.

Hopefully he sticks on PS. Odds are pretty good I think.

Eh, people are making too much out of this. It looks like he's just joking around. 


joking or not, you know what’s going to happen when/if they get to camp, right?  Even back when I played, if someone said they were fast, guys would be lining up to race them.  “Let’s see what ya got, Swag”
 

Group wise, normally QBs are faster than Olinemen, and maybe DTs.  Heck, this year there were two 300lb DTs that ran 4.8.

Making a bold statement doesnt mean you're an alcoholic again. Drinking in general, doesnt make you an alcoholic again. %, no one even said kelly was an alcoholic. Just that he was a party boy who let his emotions get the better of him a few too many times. Still... doesnt make you an alcoholic... not sure who said Kelly stopped drinking? Anyone? 

 

These comments are the same as the ones regarding the Colts owner doing drugs again because he happened to look like a train wreck once. 

 

Whatever makes you feel better about the life you're living that you cant seem to figure out why you hate. 

 

I'm already ready for this topic to get buried and forgotten.

I don’t believe Kelly was invited to the combine.   I think his off the field issues got him uninvited to the event.    That means none of us knows how fast the kid is at 40 yards.  I seriously doubt he’s the 2nd fastest at 40 yards, but I admire his confidence...,

This seems to be no big deal.  

I'm on board with the cut Brissett and go with Eason and Kelly in the backup roles.

You might be but if you listen to the Colts they aren’t.  Jacoby is the backup and Eason and Kelly are fighting for the third spot.  I really doubt Kelly is going to beat out the new draft pick.

He had a broken hand/wrist so he couldn't perform physically at the combine AND the off the field stuff sealed the deal for him not going if I recall correctly?

Huh?

 

What reason could you possibly have to believe that the competition won’t be a fair fight?    What have Ballard or Reich ever done to think that competition wouldn’t be fair?

 

Or am I misunderstanding your meaning?

I agree. If Kelly wasn't given a fair chance to earn a roster spot he would have already been gone. He was given a bigger contract than the other practice squad players when he signed. 

The thing is if he don't make the roster or is beat out by Eason there will still be those who thing they know better than the coaches who see him everyday.

Lets see.... Not start Kelly over Brissett when Brissett was injured, the league had adjusted to him, and we were mathmatically eliminated from the playoffs with the only other option being Brian Hoyer. There was nothing Kelly could do, or can ever do to start.

My opinion, obviously, but in general I think a recent draft pick gets the edge over a FA even if their reps are equal.  Let’s face it, neither are going to get real opportunities to show their stuff this year.  So I can see them making the easy choice since neither will be counted on.  In that way, the competition (IMO) isn’t fair.  If they both came out the same year and both were FAs, it would be a fair competition.  Capiche?

 

Again, only my opinion, but I think Kelly has a more competitive personality than Eason.  Mayock said he may have had the biggest arm in the draft, but he got hurt and in trouble.  He’s mobile and knows the offense.  So, tell me, in your opinion, what does he have to do win the job?

Did it ever inter your mind that Kelly didn't do enough to make the coaches trust him? 

They are the ones who see him everyday and he would have started had they thought we had a better chance of winning. 

Trust me. The coaches want to win as much as the fans do. Their jobs are on the line.

Well....    I think this off-season is the most insane off-season in sports history, so I agree that Kelly and Eason are not going to get many good looks or opportunities.   But I think that’s circumstance and not some deliberate attempt to fix the outcome of the competition. 
 

I think we’d like to keep three QBs on the roster (PR, JB, JE) with CK on the PS.   Now, that may not work out.   We may keep two, trade or cut one and try to sneak JE to the PS.  I think the situation is so fluid most anything could happen.   
 

But I think it’s counter-intuitive to think that that we cut Kelly last September, and then when we brought him back we made him the highest paid practice squad player in the NFL and then didn’t play him all year because we were trying to be unfair to him (This part is meant as much for another poster).   We clearly said to him that we weren’t going to play him, no matter what, that he was going to have to earn trust with a full year commitment from him.  We paid for the privilege of keeping him on the PS all season long, we made a deal.  I don’t think we were being punitive.  If we had been, his agent would’ve asked for his release at some point and yet Kelly is still on the team. 
 

I think our dealings with Kelly are professional and not personal... 

 

Sorty for the length of this post.

I see your point.  I don't know much about either one and if I had to, I'd choose Eason.    Not sure this is "unfair", but with a minimal preseason, the fringe players (Kelly) are at a disadvantage.   But the root cause is still all on Kelly himself.  

I'd like to see Eason at #2 and Kelly at #3 this season, but JB isn't going anywhere.

    • I think rivers has been okay for us but as expected nothing special. It's a tough decision to make for next season, and next season we face the whole NFC West and AFC East with Lawrence likely going to Jets and Fields likely going to Jags making the 'easy matchups' look a bit tougher. Either we go all or nothing with Eason or keep Rivers and probably be mediocre with a punchers chance of victory every time we play.
    • That truly was a terrible angle Willis took. Could've been held to just a bad 20 yard play on that one.
    • Where did I say that?   But,  as long as Ballard and Dodd have their team in place, I feel good about our chances to be highly competitive.   The only problems we’ve had have been when we’ve been without Andrew Luck, in 17 and 19.   When we’ve had Luck or Rivers we are a very competitive team.   Just look at some of the recent Super Bowl participants.  Only KC is really doing well.  The Pats are struggling.   So are the Rams and the Eagles.  Seattle has been hot and cold.   Same with SF.   My point is...   this game is really hard.  Staying at the top is hard.  Being elite year after year is hard.     But not only do you casually dismiss achievement, but you write off players as busts who have been mostly injured or haven’t been with the team long enough to know.  You’re jumping to conclusions, and there’s a good chance some of those conclusions could be wrong.     So yes, I like our future.  I like our GM and the front office he has.  I like his drafting and I mostly like his free agents.   As a fan, I’ll take our chances here....   I’m not predicting a Super Bowl, but I think we will have a good team moving forward.  
    • Yup, It was a pretty horrible day all around for the DBs. At least Willis had a PD and a QBH, which none of our other DBs did...    And even without Autry, I was pretty disappointed with the DE pass rush given they had a 3rd string LT.. The DL had zero sacks and QBHs...    Just bad...
    • Also Autry, Buckner, Bobby could all be back.
