In an earlier article, I mentioned that it seems like The Denver Broncos score every time Chad Kelly plays quarterback. Well, here it is so far:
Minnesota: 4 drives – Touchdown, Touchdown, Interception, Final drive ended with an incomplete pass as time expired on the Minnesota 1
Chicago: 3 drives – Touchdown, Field goal, Punt (Just missed long pass to Tim Patrick)
Washington: 3 drives – 3 field goals
Seven scores in ten drives. Seventy percent, which is remarkably close to his completion percentage so far in the preseason.
I estimate that roughly half of all NFL teams are worried about their backup quarterback situation. About half the ones I saw over the weekend should think about joining the AFL (the Abysmal Football League). The situation looks pretty good for The Broncos right now.
Somewhere in the world of people using Baseball as a metaphor for life, someone is holding up two strikes for Chad Kelly. I, for one, think he’s about to hit a home run. Would it really surprise anyone if he was the least irrelevant Mr. Irrelevant ever?
It’s time to turn in your Lowsman Trophy, Chad Kelly. You’re not irrelevant anymore.
