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.

    • Agreed. arm strength doesn’t change the philosophy of an offense. It just opens the playbook up more and makes a defense honor the arm strength a little more. Chiefs offense uses a lot of play designs to create big plays by getting guys in space. Mahomes arm gets the ball there and allows guys like Hill, Hardman and Kelse to make plays in open space. 
    • Indeed, buuuuut ...   Matthew Stafford 2020 stat line: 528   339   4,084   7.7  64.2%  26  10   96.3   For being on a crap team, once again he is really impressive.  As I said in an earlier post, if you are to believe what one of the league’s best QBs has to say about Stafford’s talent level, Stafford just might be a good “team” away from having his game elevated to the “elite” status and recognition you speak of.  Hence, I will go with the idea that he is an elite talent that’s been wallowing away in the obscurity of an atrocious franchise.    To me, he is DEFINITELY worth giving up the Colts’s first round pick for.   Frank Reich on Stafford from this past season (as reported by 1075TheFan.com) ...    “He has elite arm talent,” Reich said of Stafford back in November, when the Colts were preparing to face the Lions. “He’s one of those handful of guys, that you say, ‘There’s guys that have a really good arm and then there’s guys that have elite arm strength and arm talent.’ He’s one of those guys. He’s fun to watch. He makes big plays.”   As for this thought that the Colts should give up a current player like Darius Leonard, imho, absolutely not!  You don’t gut one aspect of your team to add at another.   That’s just spinning wheels.  You want to ADD to the existing so as to be able to take the next step.  Giving up a 1sr rounder to add a ready to go QB that possesses elite talent, that would be as easy a trade to make as the Buckner trade was last year.  
    • Man, bitter much?   How come? Bills own the AFCE now. Be happy.
    • Not that this means anything, but Rodgers is good friends with Pat McAfee & AJ Hawk of whom both are in Indy for pat's show.    Never say never.    I still think we get Stafford tho.
    • I would take Stafford without hesitation, but we also need a lt. Stafford would come here and win 12 games with this roster. Playoffs, probably a one and done that happens way to often here with the Colts. But atleast we would win and be optimistic instead of "knowing" we were going nowhere such as the 2019 season.
