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.

And it is like a virus...

I think he is good enough to be the starter for the rest of the season.

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 have a lot more respect for Ballard now than I did before. Turning into a solid player.

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

He is a beast, love his tenacity and ability to come through for team when he is needed. 2nd week in a row he has made a vital play.

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..

I think he should be M.BALLARD. (Yes, all in caps)

What does the M stand for?

What does the M stand for?

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

    • The Trouble With Andrew Luck
      Last year, he struggled mightily at interpreting what defenses were doing. The Bills and Jets had him looking like a rookie at times. But in 2014, he was brilliant at times with a number of his throws and pre-snap reads.   It makes me wonder how much Pep changed the offense from 2014 to last year.
    • The reasons Osweiller chose Houston
      Depends on the person.  If they think being an NFL player is the only way to make a lot of money, they might chase the biggest paycheck.  If they realize that they can change careers and still make lots of money when they're 40, 50, or even 80 years old, but they can't change careers and win a SB, maybe they take less money to play on a better team.   Ask a retired player if they would go back and give up a SB for more money, or if they would give money back to have that SB.  Some players might want the extra money (Charles Haley could sell off 4 SBs and still be a SB winner), but I would bet that most, especially the ones that never won a SB, would gladly give money back to get that SB (I think Dan Marino actually said this in an interview once).
    • Possible 4th WR Candidate....
      i don't get the we are to small at WR. The smallest guy has yardage numbers that compare favorably with the best WR's in league history. Anyone remember Marvin? Not a big guy. Who's been arguably the best in the league the last couple of years Id say A Brown again size?    I don't think the FO puts the premium on size the board does. We are thin at WR too? It appears we have about 8 guys battling for 1 spot. How is that thin?    If you aren't happy with who we have say that but Hilton Moncrief Dorsett and very likely Bray make up 4 of the 5 WR's we have on the 53 man. We could keep 6 but I think 5 is the number 
    • Sign WR James Jones - It makes too much sense.
      Jones is slow and struggles to get seperation. That's why he didn't have a team last September when the Pack signed him off the street. He seems like a good guy but I don't think we need him here.   We will only keep 5 or 6 WR's. We know barring injury Hilton Moncrief and Dorsett are on the 53 man. I think we can pencil Bray in because of his KR duties. He may slide to 5th on the WR depth chart but I think he finds his way on the roster. That would leave us with 1 maybe 2 roster spots.   We have guys that can fill those spots in camp. Brian Tyms is the guy I think has a real shot 6'3 205lbs. This will be his 4th year in the league. He had a huge 2014 preason looked like a break out player. I stashed him on my fantasy league roster. Then he was hit with a 4 game suspension to start the season he didn't see a lot of chances on offense after that but was a good gunner on ST's. One of reasons I think he has an inside track. He missed all last season with an injury.    We have a lot of talent that we brought in as UDFA's. I really like Tevaun Smith from Iowa. After his pro day I was surprised he went udrafted. 6'1 208lbs catches anything close. He ran the 40 in 4.38. He had a 38-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump.short shuttle in 4.26 seconds and the three-cone in 6.72 seconds   We also have McKay 6'5 kid from Cinn.  A sleeper i will be watching is Leak from Maryland, Rodgers Gramblimg is intersting. Then we signed Stangby back in Jan. If we decide we need WR help It should not be hard to find. We could have signed Hartline or Jones this week. I'd take Hartline of the two.   The TE panic I really don't get I think we keep 3. The 2 TE sets are gone. We have a proven starter and back up in Allen and Doyle. The camp battle for the 3rd spot between Swoope, Griswold, and Miller should be one of the best battles in camp this year. I predict Griswold takes it. We look good at TE from here. 
    • Training Camp Battle-MLB
      Irving is known for his run stopping ability and not his coverage skills... Losing 20lbs may help him in coverage, but he isnt known for that.

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
