You bet. He coulda taken that last run for a TD.
I will delete this when the new Colts win a Super Bowl.

Come on boys, let's get rid of the rest of my sig!

Dude is weapon and a finisher. All I remember is him catching a bunch of dump offs and converting 3rd downs. And atleast two were called back because penalties.

Needs to improve on his catching but he is a solid back.

2 weeks in a row a game has ended on a Ballard determination fueled run. Dude knows how to close.

Great run at the end by Ballard, but he has fumbled in each of the last two games(titans and dolphins) that has to change.

It's the culture of this locker room.. The Indy Colts DO NOT QUIT.

This team has some really great leaders... That are accustomed to winning. Winning is expected here.

Only if we can convince him that every single run is to close out the game lol

He's playing great. I'm not crazy about how he likes to end his runs with a leap now, especially when he's going out of bounds.

Actually, he and Carter both looked good.

I really like Ballard. I think AT THE LEAST he and Brown should get equal carries.

He really is becoming the heart and soul of this team. I agree, he has a lot of heart and intangibles you dont read about in the scouting report like 40 times, etc.

Glad he's going to be part of the nucleus and he's becoming a fan favorite. That play last week and the run to close out today are defining moments in a fun season

..and he has to hold onto the ball..and PLEASE stop hurdling the defender......that will get you hurt badly..

But he came through..Brown couldnt go..and Carter starts so slowly..

Ballard was a major factor

I love how he learned to turn up field. When he knew he couldnt break the corner he immediately turn up and took the 2 or 3 yards instead of running out of bounds. He will get better hes just making rookie mistakes.

I love how we are checking down to our rbs more often..ballard is a great weapon to have when you use him that way..he had 100 total yards today running and receiving..if he can put up that type of stat on a week to week basis that would be great..

Mike Bison/ M. Bison.

He's a ripoff of Mike Tyson. Due to a translation error from the Japanese version of Street Fighter II, Balrog and M.Bison had their names mixed up. Balrog is what we call the boxer instead of M.Bison, and M.Bison we call the head honcho instead of Balrog.

/End video game nerd rant.

Now you know! And knowing is half the battle.

But seriously, M Bison is such an awesome name. M. BALLARD. It doesn't matter what the "M" stands for in M. BALLARD. :D If I had to choose I'd vote for miraculous.

It wasn't a translation error, it was fear of a likeness lawsuit. Balrog was M. Bison, Vega was Balrog, and Bison was Vega. It's a crazy, crazy, crazy world Capcom lives in.

Ballard and Carter are keepers. Miami had some Wild Hogs stuffing the middle, give them credit.
I see a dependable running game in our future. And Oh how well that will complement Andrews/the Colts passing game.
I have been down on Andrews accuracy before the last two games. My how that has improved, leading his receivers!!!! Sweet!!!
Give him consistently good time to throw....

Do you think he and Reggie KNEW that TD was there to be had? More of that timing to come with ALL the receivers as they grow together!
BA`s Offense is starting to grow on me. haha!

How about MOVETHEPILE?

I had to go back and watch the last 5 minutes again. It was hilarious watching Reggie jump on the pile trying to just knock Ballard down before they stripped him. Reggie is our MVP IMHO.

Ballard eats Power and Stamina with a side of motivation for breakfast. He had a Dolphin sandwich for lunch.

Ballard had 41 yards before it looked like the blue sea parted just enough to get him some room to run on that play, great 19 yard power run no doubt but better learn how to take care of the ball
