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.

I will say this: Ballard has done this a few times over the years of cutting and then resigning QBs on the practice squad. 

 

Kelly last year and I believe was it a Wilson years before?

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.

It makes sense if Eason is running the scout team as well.  I would think they'd want a mobile QB to give them practice against guys like Watson or Jackson.  Or even Burrow and the Stash.

 

He'll probably be back next week.

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.

    • This may be the best football interview I have ever seen.  Must see for Colts, Packers or any other football fan!   Rodgers is the most candid I've seen and he's really funny.      
    • Correct. And we need to win that game because if we lose, it is highly unlikely we win the last 5, but I think it is likely they win at least 3 since they play Hou. Jax and a floundering Det.  And they may even be favored against Cle.  That leaves GB for them to upset to sweep into the playoffs and could make it very tough for us to get in at all with our tie breaker status.  This is the more important than any further game this season.  Win and our path to the playoffs is so much more wide open.  But we will still likely need to win at least 3 games to get in unless TN craters somehow.  Those tiebreakers are really going to challenge us in wildcard scenarios.    I could see Hou winning one against us, they usually do and they are on a major upswing.  Their offense is no joke and they do not depend at all on the run so our run defense is less effective obviously.  Pitt and the Raiders are also no joke and both games are away.  This is a critical one if we hope to win the division. If we lose, finishing 9-7 is realistically still in play and I don't see TN losing 3 out of 5.  In fact, I don't see them losing more than 2 of 5.  If we win they'll likely have to win 4 of 5 or sweep to catch us for the division.  I called the Raiders game as being key to make the playoffs and go 10-6 before the season started. With a loss, the desperate WC tie breaker situation, that is especially true.  It's possible for a 10-6 team to miss the playoffs even with the extra team.  Cleveland will almost surely get 10 wins with their easy finish.  Baltimore is also likely.  (Their divisional matchups are really favorable this time around).  Then again maybe we'll sweep the season and get the #1 seed.  Pitt still has to play 5 current playoff teams in their final 6 and KC has to play 3.     Just speculation as always, but that is the fun of a football message board.  Go Colts!
    • ^This^   Another way to look at it is this:  considering the production that Ballard is getting out of his draft picks while they're still on their rookie contracts... why over-spend on re-signing anybody?   If Ballard can continue hitting on draft picks the way he has, then it's almost better to just keep accumulating draft picks, draft well, and let the young guys go out and make plays.   Let other teams over-spend on proven talent while Indy keeps providing an opportunity for young hungry players to prove their talent.   Save the money for slam-dunk moves like Buckner.
    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
