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..

      Green, i didnt know much about him early on, but recebtly i heard about him shooting up draft boards fast, and also saw how excited our staff was to get him, so he must be something special, we'll just have to wait and see
    • Player you're most excited about
      After listening to the post draft interview,  I'm really excited about Antonio Morrison and Hassan Ridgeway..something tells me that those two players will become a key part of the defense..especially Morrison!! Just go listen to the way pags and grigson talk about the guy,  not to mention they talked about him longer than any other player, which gave us more of their view on him and his potential..also excited about TJ Green.

      I'm still not 100% sold on the Jaguars. Last year, Luck missed 9 games, Mariota missed 5 (I think), and the Texans were a mess at QB, as usual, so the division was practically gift-wrapped for the Jags, but they only managed 5 wins. They were the only team in the division with a healthy starting QB for all 16 games, and they still sucked. I'm not saying they won't be improved because they most definitely will be better, but considering how awful they've been, that's really not saying much.

      Then don't watch his Bama game tape on YouTube.  I did, it depressed me.   Except for seeing Kelly take him out as well as opening holes for Henry.
