Lol. The more I think about it is good for Eason. He will have to fight if he wants to be the starter in the future or backup next year. Nothing will be handed to him. At this point we really can’t bring Jacoby back next year if we want to see either of these guys develop. 

 

I Would love for the colts to have a playoff seed wrapped up and be able to see Eason in a game at the end of the year.

It’s a longterm outlook for competition. This organization is probably Kelly’s best bet and maybe his only bet. Keeping him on PS shows that he’s willing to work through that process and that we are looking to keep him in some form longterm once Brissett is gone and Rivers retires from the game.

My preference is to not see any other QB than Rivers this year. If we're up big late in a game, or have playoffs locked up, Rivers can just hand it off lol. Doubt you'd see Eason at all so long as JB is healthy. The only reason I'd want to see Eason is if we're out of the playoff hunt, or if Rivers is out for the year.

If we have a playoff seed locked up the last game I would love to see Jacoby the first half and Eason the second half. At some point we need to get him in a game to see what he can do. Ballard seemed pretty impressed with Eason in his presser today.

Really liking the looks of our PS.

 

Little surprised about Harris over Johnson, but I suppose we could end up keeping 3.

 

Imagine we will bring a Safety on board, maybe another kicker?

I don't hate him at all. But I LOVE needling his fan bois here on the forum. :funny:

I really don't care about him either way. 

I do like suggesting to the JB fan bois on here that Kelly is better though lol.

Reality is, they're both likely just back-up quality.

If Rivers is looking good, and does well, he'll be back next year. So if that's the case, Eason really doesn't need to see the field this season. And if we're in a position where it just doesn't matter, then let me see Eason for a half, and Kelly for a half. We already know what we have with JB.

And the funny part is that Chad is the 2nd best QB on the team...much more capable of leading the team to a win than Brissett.  Eason is still too inexperienced.

Only time will tell. Right now, no comps. We know Kelly was good enough to win the backup job at Denver before being cut for behavioral issues. We know JB couldn't maintain starter status after being elevated due to injury. We know Ballard is keeping both around for at least one more year. 

 

Frankly, it'll likely be a mystery we'll never have answers too. That is, unless JB ever gets a QB1 job again, and Chad can gain trust and make it on a 53. All we know is that both were good enough to backups at one time or another.

At some point he needs game reps. I wouldn’t mind seeing Eason and Kelly. But they would probably give JB some time.

Kelly has no more game experience then Eason. Only a few preseason snaps.

Just your opinion that Kelly is the 2nd best QB on the roster.

Evidently Ballard and crew don't agree.

Mr. Irrelevant has been nothing but irrelevant.

JB is 2nd until proven otherwise but glad Chad made the PS again.

Realistically, JB was the #1 last year and has been relegated to the #2 spot this year by the likes of a HOF QB ringer who was brought in for the win NOW mode.

 

Kelly, OTOH, has been relegated to the #4 spot on the practice squad on a team that has, according to the CK fan bois:

  • a legit #1 in PR,
  • a completely and contemptibly incompetent QB in JB who is now the #2 (perhaps temporarily, until PR retires for good),
  • and a raw rookie who apparently has nothing but a strong arm going for him (according to some in here) at #3, on the active roster.

 

Not sure why there's still a clamor for #4 to be considered the 2nd best, but such is life.

Here's my thoughts on it, and I am not a Kelly fan boi.

 

He very well may be the 2nd best QB on the roster, but with JB's cap hit and experience he isn't going to be on the roster in front of him this year. Then they couldn't risk losing Eason to a waiver claim(someone would of probably scooped him up). They already had a good feel on the league, that they could get Kelly to the PS.

 

So, in conclusion, just because he is on the PS, that doesn't mean he is the 4th best qb on the team. Saying that though, that also doesn't mean he is the 2nd best qb on the roster either.

Ballard mentioned today that they will be keeping a QB always protected this year. I assume he means because of covid.  Eason would not of made it through waivers so it was a easy decision.  He really did say a lot o great things today. That was nice to see after all his comments after the draft. If Jacoby is gone next season there probably will be a competition for backup between the two. We also never know what will happen and Rivers could retire. Would be interesting to see what happens if that played out. Maybe bring Jacoby back for a year and let him fight out the starting job with Eason. Next year will be interesting.

I really like Kelly... as a back up but thoughtless remarks like this kind of make me wish that we would just let him walk...

He is on the practice squad, because he deserves to be there. If he deserved more, someone in this QB starved league would snag him. Personally, I know of no Kelly haters here, just fans tired of armchair GM's stating fallacies about the ineptitude of the Colts coaching staff when it comes to recognizing Kelly's abilities.

I just listened to Ballard’s session. I had to chuckle when he used the word “dadgum” to describe how dadgum tough Rock Ya Sin is.

that is the truth. JB lived up to his scouting report. He is consistent. He is what he is. No need to see more. If he started with the 70's steel curtain, Stallworth and Swan would have been a non threat 15 yards down field.

We've all beat this horse to death, and then beat it some more.... but to be fair to Jacoby, the WRs didnt help him out much outside of Pascal.... Jacoby himself was hurt and obviously we all know what happened with TY and Campbell.

He wasnt exactly in a situation for success.... Having said that, we all know we needed to move on, and move on we did almost certainly for the better.... Im just sick of people saying Brissett was terrible, when in reality he wasnt all that bad.... He wasnt great, but he wasnt awful.

lol. QB starved? We have a glut this year more than any other. And for the record, I've said all along he'll be on the PS.

Sorry......to clarify, I wasn't referring to your thoughts on Kelly, but I did give my own. However, I did respond to the "Kelly haters" bit. This board definitely has Brissett haters, but I haven't seen any Kelly haters....but the board has grown some Kelly fan haters. 

 

When all 32 teams are happy with their starting QB, that would be a glut of QB's, to me

All 32 teams will never be happy. That's part of the game. The bottom 10 will always be looking to improve. 

 

There has been plenty CK hate. You just notice the other more because of your own views.

I wonder what the status is on Andrew Vollert. Supposedly Colts wanted to sign him to PS. He’s probably not thrilled about Noah addition to roster. 
 

Chargers practice squad still has room for one more. 

I'd be willing to bet two scenarios played out: Vollert was not patient enough to accept Ballards approach of cutting him and then bringing him back as soon as they could IR Day and was busy entertaining other offers; or he is just * off and refuses to sign to our practice squad and is STILL waiting on other offers....... besides, I like Noah and Charlie (In fact, I had Charlie as a potential target in the draft for s) and their skillset!

I like both of those moves! I has Charlie on the Colt's radar during the draft and he is a FB now converted into an H-Back/TE and the kid from TCU can run the ball pretty good, solid career and then had a productive Senior Bowl as well!

    • That's what I was thinking
    • I think we're in good shape either way, it just adjusts our strategy with some extensions, and maybe we can't add another FA.    For a team like the Eagles, it completely changes their approach. If the cap is $175m, they can't keep Wentz without completely gutting the rest of their roster.
    • The trend is for the best offenses to be the teams contending for the Superbowl.  Are you aware of the basic Defense wins championships mantra?  You know Offense scores points?   I assume you are   Interstingly, the last really good D to win Superbowl was PHI and they had to score 44 points to do it v. No. 1 yanked Offense NE. And the Foles led offense carried them through the playoffs.  Before that it was Mannings Broncos.   Also intersesting is the 13-3 NE over LAR SB, featured the 25th and 27th ranked Ds in football.       The way to win in today's NFL is with high powered NFL passing offenses.  The rules are and have been set up that way increasingly over the last 20 years.   It's a lot different than when we were kids.   So like I said, it's usually Offense wins championships, Defense tries to hold teams to FGs.  There are occasionally anomalies but this is bascially accurate in todays' NFL.
    • There’s a good reason why defense everywhere suffered badly.   I can explain it in one word.  And you know the word.  Come on EVERYBODY say it with me!!!!   COVID!!   C-O-V-I-D!!   Defenses were poorer in the NFL and the college level as well.   Much less practice.  Much less contact.  Much less close up coaching.  Far more walk throughs.      When the world returns to normal, defenses will get better.  So will football. 
    • Not surprising at all. Here is how he ranked in other categories:   Intended Air Yards/PA - 26 Completed Air Yards/PA - 28 Completed Air Yards/Completion - 29 YAC/Completion - 2   First...it cannot be ignored that the Colts played (by far) the easiest schedule on offense. The average defense they played would have ranked ~23rd in DVOA. And that average was "deflated" somewhat by playing #1 defense PIT...when they clearly weren't the #1 defense anymore (after losing players to injury). That definitely played a factor.   Second...these numbers are as much Reich as it is anything. Reich uses the mesh concept (like he did with JB last year)...which creates open players in space and allows for YAC.    In fact, River's numbers (in the above categories) were very similar to JB's numbers last season. But Rivers is just a much better QB...and throws with better anticipation and accuracy. Throw in a HR hitter like Taylor and a young talented WR like Pittman...and you (naturally) have much better QB production with these concepts.   With the Colts offensive system, I think they could have immediate success with just about any talented QB they brought in...including a rookie. And if that QB is mobile...it will open up the playbook even more and raise the ceiling.   So I am in the minority here...but Rivers coming back doesn't move the needle for me. It's a lateral and stagnant move. I was all for the signing Rivers last off season...because it was the best of not-so-ideal situation. But if anything, it just proved that this team is ready to take the next step forward...and that means getting the right QB. Now is the time to make that move. So the only way I want Rivers back is if they get aggressive and move up to draft a QB who might need to sit for a part or all of a season.    TBH...I would rather roll the dice on Darnold and accept the risk of a reset year. I think he make a  good transition to this offense. And either he breaks out and suddenly you have a 24 year-old franchise QB...or he doesn't...and you have a reset year with the Colts in a much better position to draft a QB. Bringing back Rivers does nothing for the position long-term...and likely means another pick in the 20s.
