Delone Carter's future..

15 posts in this topic

I've been pulling for this guy since he was drafted last year and have been wanting to see some more carries from him this year. With that said, after that fumble yesterday, do you think he still has a future with Indy or was that the final straw?

well he did score a td so that might save him, but he needs to learn to tuck it close to the chest.

That fumble wasn't his fault.

The defender did a great job of punching it out, even with two hands on the ball.

I think we could keep him for cheap.

He had it tucked defender made a good play.. Also he put on allot of weight he is huge. And i think he should stay he runs hard.

I doubt they are worried about replacing Carter, He is not doing himself any favors but he is under contract until 2015 and he is our power back down at the goal line

If he can't hold onto the ball, he can't play. It makes no difference why the fumbles happen, he drops the ball way too much. I don't see a future for him with the Colts. I also don't think he provides anything substantially different than Brown or Ballard in short yardage, which is what he's basically stuck with now, so there is no reason to sign him again when the contract expires. It isn't like he is some dynamic talent which isn't easily replaced. I liked him at Syracuse, rooted for him to have success, but I simply haven't seen anything which makes me think he is not easily replaced. And fumbling frequently is a quick way to get replaced.

I like Delone, but this would be a nonissue even if it were his contract year. Way to premature to really even put thought into it. He has 2 more years to prove himself and I'm hoping to have a more stout offensive line after free agency, so that we can more accurately and fairly assess our stable of backs.

I think his future is pretty secure. There's no need for the team to invest in new rb's

Completely agree.. I REALLY like the trio of Brown, Ballard, and Carter. I just wish Arians would give them more opportunities to allow them to get in a rhythm along with the O-line.

We need more of a two headed monster in the run game I say we keep him but bring in a RB in FA and Carter gets cut before the season Brown won't be resigned that's why I say we bring someone in from FA

Brown is still under contract in 2013.

It is unfortunate that Carter has the fumble problems. Because I absolutely LOVE his running style. He is a north-south runner that almost always picks up yards. And he has far more speed than he is given credit for. He is like a poor mans Michael Turner less the fumbles.

Ha don't bet on it. Carter was a Polian pick. He'll be lucky to be here next year. Grigson will still be turning over the roster big time this off-season.

All fumbles are your fault.....He need good play in the final month to stay...

He runs hard but he'd be cut if the season ended today..

    •   Not only wouldn't they win a Super Bowl,  they wouldn't make the playoffs.   They'd likely struggle to win 8 games.   There's no short-cut for experience.     Not even great talent....  
    • Me too! I think speed, quickness and good hands ought to work. I wonder if he can block in pass pro?
    • What about a rookies/sophomores team combo? That might be a much better chance at winning the Super Bowl.   QB - Carson Wentz, Dak Prescott RB - Ezekiel Elliott, Jordan Howard RB/FB - Leonard Fournette TE - Hunter Henry, OJ Howard, Evan Engram WR - Michael Thomas, Corey Davis, Tyreke Hill, Christian MaCaffrey OT - Jack Conklin, Ronnie Staley, Laremy Tunsil, Taylor Decker OG - Cody Whitehair, Forrest Lamp C - Ryan Kelly, Nick Martin   DE - Myles Garrett DT - Joey Bosa DT - DeForest Buckner DE - Soloman Thomas   OLB - Noah Spence, Yannick Ngakoue ILB - Haason Reddick, Reuben Foster OLB - Deion Jones, Darron Lee   CB - Jalen Ramsey, Vernon Hargraves Jr, Artie Burns SS - Keanu Neal, Karl Joseph, Jabrill Peppers FS - Jamal Adams, Malik Hooker   K - Rigoberto Sanchez P - Austin Rekhow
    • I wouldn't call protecting your kid as coddling with over 300,000 brain injuries in the US every year. I guess those 300,000 unlikely injuries didn't happen?
    •   Haven't seen the video, nor am I any good at determining injuries from them (Dr. Chao is quite good at it though...)   I never heard, then or up until and including now, concerning vasculature or neuro issues.  That indicated to me back then, and still does today, that TB could regain his starting QB job   But a QB competition could serve them both well.at some point in time .  But lets be real.  TB is still not recovered... when he does he will not be 'as good as new'.  But agree he could be quite nice anyway. And... he will have to earn (beat out Sam) his QB job back.  It won't be handed to him on a platter, trust me.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
