Cutting Kelly might mean the FO is pleased with Eason's progress.  The cut could be a sign of good things.

Obviously,  Ballard is making room for Scott tolzien to come back.

To add to my last comment though, it looks like eason has put in a lot of work and effort, and this could be Ballard's way of saying he fully trusts Eason now.

You beat me by a second. 100% agree.

Don't be a troublemaker :lol: This is a tragedy for every man, women and child that is a Colts fan! hahahaha 

 

I do wish we kept him though, so he could compete next year with Eason, but I believe Eason has a good chance to be our future franchise QB starting next year.

This could get very ugly around here.

 

 

Kelly era must be over? Seems odd to release him now. 

I expect him to be back in a similar fashion to how we handled Phillip Walker several years ago. Release him and get him back on the roster depending on whether we have any immediate need this current week for another position(with WR getting hit with injuries we need more WRs these days it seems)

 

edit: well, that of course is unless he's done something stupid behind the scenes to lose Reich and Ballard's trust.

Favor repaid. Good deed accomplished. Best to Chad. Cheers to Frank Reich and Jim Kelly!

If Eason is anywhere close to what Ballard thinks he is, then I 100% agree. Kelly held his spot long enough until Eason may or may not of proven himself to Ballard and Reich.

It's annoying only because we released him before knowing what we had in him in a real game. Could be a mistake. We'll find out down the line.

Remember...   we didn’t cut CK from the 53.    We cut him from the Practice Squad.   The 16-man PS. 
 

That said, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him back on the PS somewhere during the season.    Or not.   
 

This is going to be a strange, strange season.  Keep telling yourself that every time you’re surprised....

With the expanded PS not to sure remember the Colts have a Kicker on the PS

Who cares? We all knew it would happen sooner or later. O mean for petes sake we had 4 QBs

Actually we didn't. It's probably good news in the way that Eason is progressing nicely as he learns in his rookie year. I believe if Eason was struggling, we'd still have Kelly as an "insurance policy". Take that for what it's worth (my opinion).

Agreed, unless they found some new guy to bring in, the silver lining is that they probably wouldn't cut Kelly if they weren't pleased with Eason's progress. And considering he's the only QB on the roster thus far for next season they're keeping a close eye on that progress.

    • Predicted this last night in the Cully thread.   The perfect out come he is traded to SF is and out of conference and Stafford is traded to Colts and is out of conference.  
    • I think SF would be a frontrunner over the Jets for one of Watson's destinations.   Mahomes is a hindrance for the Broncos to go after him or Stafford, IMO. WFT is a dark horse and Dan Snyder is stupid enough to mortgage 3 first rounders and 3 second rounders for Watson, IMO while I feel his market value should settle down at 2 first rounders and 2 second rounders. Jimmy G definitely is slightly better in a swap than Drew Lock as well, IMO.
    • I highly doubt Watson is going to retire and walk away. Not with that type of money. I don't know his personal finances but if he has high dollar bills to pay he has to work.   
    • Meh this doesn't mean much to me.  10 teams is still a lot of teams.     If you have a QB or are picking towards the top of the draft you probably are not interested.     Article lists 19 teams but the article is incorrect that these teams would be seriously interested in giving up picks and money for Stafford.  Remember these teams arn't stupid, they know it's likely going to take a 1st.  They arn't getting Stafford for some 5th round pick.   Article lists:   Jets, Patriots, Dolphins, Steelers, Browns, Jaguars, Colts, Texans, Broncos, Raiders, Washington, Cowboys (as a potentially cheaper alternative to Dak Prescott), Bears, Vikings, Panthers, Saints, Falcons, 49ers, and Rams.   But several of those are incorrect.   Jets are in complete rebuild and hold the #2 overall pick.  They are not going to want to make a significant investment in a 32 year old QB.   Patriots: Yes   Dolphins: Probably not, they will probably give Tua another year.     Steelers: If Big Ben said I'm retiring now than yes.  But if Big Ben is coming back than no.   Browns: Umm no, they have Mayfield.  Stafford might be a little better but is the improvement worth a 1st rounder to them?  Also Mayfield is a lot younger.   Jags: They would be stupid to trade Trevor Lawrence for Matt Stafford.  Jags need to get Lawrence and build around him.     Colts: Yes   Texans: Maybe but probably not.   It doesn't seem 100% certain that Watson is on his way out.  Plus even if Watson is on his way out, Texans are also in a complete rebuild.  If you are rebuilding you don't invest high picks in older Vet QB's because by the time your rebuild is complete they are on the decline.   Broncos: Maybe   Raiders: No, again how much better is Stafford over Carr?   Washington: Yes   Cowboys: Seems to me that they should just pay Dak.   Bears: Yes   Vikings: I think they are still attached at the hip to Cousins.     Panthers: Yes   Saints: They have Hill as their QB.  Payton said he was going to be the next Saints QB.  Plus given the cap situation they couldn't.  They are over 100M in the red.   Falcons: Maybe if Matt Ryan is leaving.  But I have not heard that he is.   49ers: I think they are kind of attached at the hip to Jimmy G.   Rams: No, Stafford doesn't provide enough of an improvement over Goff.  
    • I've been looking and I can't find any actual quotes from Watson saying anything like that. The only actual quote about a head coach he made was:   "I mean, we just need a whole culture shift. We just need new energy. We need discipline, we need structure, we need a leader so we can follow that leader as players. That's what we need. We've got to have the love of not just the game of football, because that's what we do, but the love for people and the people in this organization."   I think his comments about the organization as a whole, with regards to the racist (some may say they were only "racially insensitive") comments prior owner Bob McNair made and BoB allegedly made to Hopkins, reflect a culture of racism that has festered throughout the organization.   There were musing that Watson preferred Bienemy, but those musings never mentioned it was due to race, although assumptions were made. What QB wouldn't want the OC for one of the most high powered offenses in the league to be his HC? Especially one that is talked about in such high esteem by his players.   I honestly think as soon as McNair asked for his input, then essentially told him to go kick rocks, he was done there.
