Jordan Love Declaring for the Draft

Colt fans seem to think he is Ballard's guy.

I haven't looked into him enough. But, so far, I'm not seeing a definitive upgrade over Brissett.

Colts Twitter thinks he is the 2nd coming of Patrick Mahomes. Not many of us myself included are experts when watching tape but in my amateur opinion the tape of Chad Kelly against SEC opponents particularly Alabama/Georgia is as impressive if not more than watching Jordan Love against Mountain West competition. NFL arm talent as well as the ability to extend plays...with much more athleticism than Brissett. If Ballard were to want to move on from Brissett there is no reason he should not contemplate at least including Chad Kelly in the competition. Particularly with how cheap his contract would be compared to a fairly high draft choice. Colts Twitter seems to think a gunslinger mentality willing to take chances and accept mistakes will be made is what Colts need rather than the conservative nature of Brissett as well as the conservative play calling Brissett seems to force Reich into. Want a gunslinger...ya already got him. I don't see Ballard putting up draft capital to actually move up in the draft, If he really likes someone and thinks they will fall to Colts he may take that gamble.

One other thing to consider about Jordan Love...Colts Twitter likes to excuse his performance this year to missing pieces from last year...coaching and weapons. Apparently then he is as good at making second tier players better as Brissett is.

Iíve seen some mocks having us take Justin Herbert. Iíd take him before Love and all those interceptions. But Iím also real curious to see more of Kelly.

The Mahomes comparisons are ridiculous. And Mahomes is protected a great deal by the mind of Andy Reed. Without Reed’s voice in his ear, he is not nearly as astute every down.

Still Love has the physical tools and Ballard loves those freak athletes.

This fan base builds itself up so much every year over certain players. Especially underdogs and low draft picks.

Excluding Freaks, the Colts kind of do have one of the dumbest fan bases in the NFL.

They seem kinda gullible donít they. Someone puts out some buzz and it snowballs into the greatest thing ever.

We will never get Herbert to fall to us...we will have to move up.
Love is just a raw version of Brissett who will need development years.
I too want to see Kelly play...and not just 1/2 of the final game.
Kelly should be allowed to compete with Brissett on an even footing...not much doubt that Kelly would beat out Jacoby.
