Must be Jim called in a favor to Frank (Chad Kelly)

Recommended Posts

He's had multiple chances.  Personally, I hope he falls flat on his effed up face so someone who actually DESERVES a chance gets one.  

 

I'm tired of this punk's pathetic story.

It was a different time. Things chad is doing now most likely would have been brushed off as “boys will be boys” back then. Like I said there wasn’t video of everything so if It did get out it for the most part was his word against someone else’s word. Actually seeing a video makes it much worse. Also star athletes got away with a ton.

 

If Jim played now he would have been kicked out of the league. 

 

It was a different time in some regards - sure, drunkenness and disorderliness were more apt to brush off as "boys will be boys" or to never be heard about pre-social-media.

 

But was it really a different time as regards getting dismissed from multiple programs for discipline issues?  If anything, I think that sort of thing (mouthing off to a coach in public etc) was LESS tolerated then.

Read this thread. First page and bottom of page 15 should be enough to fill you in.

 

15 pages is way too much to shift through.  Can you give me a readers digest version?

Private lives were for the most part private back then. Everybody didn’t have a camera that instantly shares pics or video with the entire world.  

 

Private lives are still private for the most part.   If I get into a street fight with a bouncer, that's no longer my private life, right?

 

But it seems to me that getting cut from multiple programs for "discipline issues" or "conduct detrimental" (the latter involving coaches) has been a big red flag for a long time.

Apparently, two sentences is ‘way too much’.

But isn't knowing there will be cameras and still repeatedly acting like a dick the problem?  Jim at least had the foresight to build a bar in his basement away from the prying eyes of the public.

It's kind of a comedy of errors.  Chad Kelly got incoherent drunk at Von Miller's Halloween party and entered a private residence uninvited, where he frightened the mother of a young child and was sent off when the Man of the House beat him up with a vacuum cleaner tube (I'm not kidding, see above).

Both Kiko Alonso and Jim Bob Cooter have a similar incident in their past they had to live down.   The problem with Chad Kelly is it's the latest in a long line of incidents.  If it were the first/only, it would probably be seen as funny, but even then, when you're the QB and expected to lead the team, trespassing and getting run off by a guy waling on you with a housecleaning tool is not a good look.

Rob Gronkowski built himself a "Party Bus".  Lots of guys manage to get drunk even in public and have a hired driver/wingman see them safely home.

I have heard that elsewhere, but my question is more around Chad Kelly's other history which imply he is not able to keep his issues in some kind of control.

1) cut from his first high school team due to "unexplained disciplinary issues"

2) dismissed from his first college team due to "conduct detrimental to the team" after an altercation with coaches during a spring game, and statement by the head coach indicating it wasn't an isolated incident " He has had a pattern of behavior that is not consistent with the values of our program"

3) arrested outside a bar for disorderly conduct just after being given a "second chance" at another program

4) arrested for criminal trespassing after entering a woman's residence uninvited (presumably while drunk)

 

Just one of those things has been raised as a serious red flag for other NFL prospects.  It's not just if he's drinking, it's that he seems like a loose cannon who consistently can't follow rules and keep his behavior within bounds - and it looks like a pattern from HS to College to 2nd College to NFL.

 

Did Jim Kelly have a worse track record than the above?

 

I am pretty sure that I remember hearing Vic Carucci, who is close to the Kelly family, that even with Jim’s connection and influence the idea of Chad going to the Bills has allegedly never been broached seriously.  Only because it was believed that having him in Buffalo close to all of the riff raft and enablers from his past, would be a giant distraction.  

 

I know there was a lot of optimism for him getting a fresh start in Denver.  He seemed to be doing fairly well.  It’s a shame things unraveled because on his way to getting some playing time.

I’m kinda in this camp.  Never heard a positive word about him from Buffalo people but still hoped he’d get it together because he was from here.  But he’s on his 16th chance because of his uncle when most people won’t get a second.

Not that I really care either way, but do we really know Jim called in a favor here or are we just internet speculating on this one?

I will say the stories I heard of Jim (I was too young but I’ve heard from a lot of sources) were he was worst than Chad.  But he was super talented and there was no social media or cellphones.

Thanks for the skinny.  Just curious why being cut from an NFL team would be a wake-up call, while being cut from a major college program that was his gateway to the NFL and going from a highly-touted highschool recruit to "Mr Irrelevant" (last pick of the NFL draft) did not?

 

I believe with a little age, comes a little clarity 😁

So are the haters also hating on their beloved Jimbo because he is helping out his nephew(according to some posters here)?

At the end of day, the biggest difference between the two.

At least he's got a coach who can look him in the eye and say "I played with Jim Kelly. I know Jim Kelly. Jim Kelly is a friend of mine. And Chad, you're no Jim Kelly.  Now LISTEN UP!"

or the famous ...."So now you're Jack Kennedy;);)"

Oh, BeHAVE.  Who is hating on Jimbo?  People are pointing out he was a known "wild Thang" in his time, can you dispute it?

But see that's my question.  Jim was a "party boy" and a wild thang, no doubt.  But did he have the same track record or "worse than Chad" for getting thrown off teams for discipline problems?  I doann Think so, and I think if anything, coaches were stricter in those days.  That's my thing with Chad, talented or no.  If you're gonna cross the line with the coaches and not be disciplined enough to stay within the rather-loose lines of the team rules, it's hard to participate in a team sport.  Better TUG.

I'm arguing the point that people think Chad would be out of chances if it wasn't for Jimbo, and if they hate Chad because of his multiple opportunities, isn't that indirectly hating on Jimbo for helping out his "out of control" nephew?  

 

Also, last time I looked Reich wasn't the GM or had control over personnel decisions.  So maybe connecting the dots isn't so simple as some make it out to be.

 

Bottom line...I just don't get all the hate toward Chad....he is clearly more talented than people make him out to be.  i.e.  he wouldn't have any chance in the NFL without Jimbo.

On thing is for sure. He wouldn’t have been drafted without Jim’s influence.

Second not hard to connect the dots this “talented” QB is getting (maybe) yet another chance with a team that Jim’s friend has influence. 

 

You would think if Chad was so “talented” he would have signed somewhere well before a team where Jim’s friend has influence. After all the league has a QB talent problem.

Chad Kelly is light years better than Jake Dolegala. I believe Chad has learned his lesson. He knows he is on his final straw before a lifetime Manziel blackball.

 

How many final straws is this?
