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?

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..

    How many of you are CD collectors. I have at least in between 60-80 CD's. As most people are going to I Pods and other tech stuff. Just wondering.

    I was listening to 101.5 WIBA FM yesterday driving home & the DJ on duty was talking about buying a ranch home with a 2nd story tower on it with his wife. He said he goes up in 1 room in there & blares Dio music which according to him "can lure & summon dragons to his residence." LOL!
