Chad Kelly jumps Paxton Lynch on Broncos' depth chart

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this has been discussed yet, but as Bills fans, you've gotta love hearing about the rising stock of Chad Kelly.  I'm not very high on Keenum.  I would absolutely love to see Kelly as the starter before the season ends.

This has another Tom Brady story written all over it.  Mr. Irrelevant becoming a starter and making the other 31 teams around the league regretting on not taking him in the draft.  I can see it now.  I hope this kid keeps the Kelly legacy alive.

Why is Paxton Lynch not talked about more as one of the bigger busts in recent memory? I get that he was picked in the later part of the first round, and I know he went to a small school (Memphis if I remember right) but this guy hasn't even sniffed the field and is now being beaten out by a guy who was picked last. I feel like if this was a buffalo/cleveland/Jax draft pick the media would be bashing the hell out of this pick. 

 

-In regards to the actual post. Good for Chad, i don't know if this is an endorsement of Chad or shows how bad Paxton Lynch really is.

Because, like EJ, everyone knew it was a reach at the time by a team desperate for a QB

If Paxton Lynch were drafted in the third round he would have been gone long ago.  He was so bad that the franchise saw Trevor Siemian as a starter.

I'm afraid this is less about Kelly and more about how bad Lynch is

A little bit of both.

 

Lynch obviously sucks, but Kelly took the job by performing well.

But very good at making bank with little to no production.

 

when Lynch gets cut Kelly should take his #12

Lynch sucks. He sucked as a prospect and he sucks as a pro. How John Elway ever looked at the guy and thought he could play I have no idea.

I saw Brady play many times at Michigan, he was way behind the skill levels that Chad displayed in college

 

of course many other variables come into play to meld to the discipline and toughness required to star in the NFL

 

 

Roethlisberger was the only QB i saw in over a decade of college road trips for Big Ten games that was a sure thing, even with his team getting clobbered.

I am sure if GoFundMe was around BuffaloBarbarian would have started a fund page to trade starting DE for John Skelton.

Fans are very irrational at times.

I agree.  I watched the replay of the game.  Lynch's performance was easily the worst one by a QB that I saw among the first preseason games.  One of the Denver announcers said that he hadn't developed at all, but his performance really wasn't even acceptable for a rookie QB much less a third year veteran.  Lynch doesn't seem to have a future even as a backup.

 

Kelly looked really good, but he followed Lynch which made him look even better.

I still refuse to buy the argument that the better pick than taking Shaq was to take Paxton Lynch. If someone wants to make the argument that they should have taken Myles Jack I am not going to take issue with them... there are other guys who went later (including Deion Jones who had I a 1st round grade on) who would have been better selections too. But to take Paxton Lynch just because he was a Quarterback when there were so many freaking red flags about his ability to play in the league.... no. I just can't take that argument. I am all for picking Quarterbacks in the first round, early and often until you find one.  But some years you have to look at those who are there at your pick and just say "no, they're horrible."

He didn't look particularly good in the preseason game.  Lynch just looks like he's the same guy he was 3 years ago.

Don't forget he was hyped the as the Bills franchise savior once.... along with dozens of others.... actually that describes every QB in the draft since Kelly retired.

Over the span of 5 months leading up to the 2017 draft, Chad tore an ACL and lateral meniscus in his knee, had his combine invite rescinded in an unprecedented move by the NFL,  and blew out a ligament in his throwing wrist at his "all in" Pro Day.  These were epic setbacks of a Roy Hobbsian scale.  I think getting the label of Mr. Irrelevant began his turnaround.  He embraced the title and made it work for him and his career resurrection.

 

Seems like he has listened to the good advice he was getting, attacked his rehab, kept his nose in the playbook and the rest of himself out-of-trouble.  Throughout training camp he has been the first on the field and the last to leave.   Broncos fans have noticed.  There is nothing like seeing visions of losing your dream to force a reckoning.   It is a future he has to work for and was no longer entitled to.   Working his way to 2nd team is huge compared to where he was a little over a year ago even if the Broncos decide to bring in another vet QB.  Congratulations to him.  Many in WNY are watching and pulling for him.
