Carter out 2-3 weeks

29 posts in this topic

Poor Carter, just when we could have had his chance to get some carries.

I hope he comes back for the playoffs.

yes no fumbles

Are you sure? We could end having more fumbles, with RBs that can't bust through a clogged line.

Hope Ballard remains relatively healthy.

Running back situation certainly isn't what you would want this week. At least ballard is still there.

Carter`s fumble was pitiful. No Excuse. He sits on the bench most of the season because of it, gets in the game and fumbles right off.

We need him for goal line and short yardage but he won`t likely make the roster next year.

So now Ballard will pretty much get every snap, unless Moore gets some third down snaps.

Keep in mind, Ballard is a little dinged up, he'll be ready but it's not someones mental readiness or will-power that dictates 100 percent of how they do.,,,, it's also their health. We really need someone who can block like Addai--- keep in mind Addai is only 6 years in. not saying Addai himself but someone who can block.... not sure about Moore's blocking compared to Addai but I would say probably a lesser blocker.

Yeah! I know right! Ballard hasn't put one on the ground all year!

Moore wasn't in the same area code as Addai with is blocking earlier this year. Ballard had a stinger but that should be fine now. It's going o be interesting to see who comes off the bench first. I thought Karim looked decent.

Is Evans still in the league?

Ballard should be ok. He just got a stinger in the Titans game. Not too big

That name just sent flashbacks of that perfect Manning pass to him at the goal line that bounced off his hands and into the hands of a SD player going the distance for a TD swinging momentum. Wow that was a bad flashback. And if it haunts me I am sure Irsay sees it every other night. Also if I am not mistaken that was one of our many ugly 1 and dones.

Vick Ballard - 2 fumbles

Delone Carter - 1 fumble

Ballard does have 5 times more carries though.....Brown has zero fumbles.

I'll be honest here, I like Carter's game better than any of our other backs. He just seems to grind out tough yards, and doesn't sacrifice any of the elusiveness that the other guys have, despite his size. He and Ballard have the same YPC, but Carter is always in on the short yardage plays, which brings his average down. Just my two cents.....

The one from Warren Central? If that's who you're talking about, I believe he is on a practice squad somewhere or a 3rd stringer. I agree with you on the area code thing. I was just listening to JMV and they had Marshall Faulk on and man, If they only made a few more of those RB's to steal in the draft, we could be set, he was amazing.

Ok, thanks, it was worrying me .... I heard B.A. say that they would have gone to D. Allen if Ballard went down.

I was not aware of that. He's better than people give him credit for.

That's what I saw, too 'Dr. No'

..and its going up

misspoke...what I meant was....we're down top less and less backs...

to be honest..I would rush anybody back this week.

We MUST win at KC.......we could lose Sunday and we'd be fine

    • TJ Green: Scouting Proile
      I've done a few. Taking the time to put it all in words and in a format that you can share with others is very time consuming. I don't know how he did 40+ last year.   I wanted to do a bunch so that I could share my big board and keep all my thoughts straight, because I'm always confusing one guy for the next. Didn't quite make it...
    • TJ Green: Scouting Proile
      Consider the way the league has been changing. Mays at 230 was 'too small' to play linebacker. Mays right now would be moved down into the box full time, like Mark Barron (who was almost a lost cause, the Bucs got rid of him quickly) and Deone Bucannon. Teams were still trying to use these SS guys who couldn't cover as 8th man in the box and whatnot, but offenses were making them pay. Mays couldn't stay on the field. Not trying to make excuses for him, but I think he'd have a better chance if he were coming into the league right now.   Then again, Jeremy Cash went undrafted, which I really don't understand, but whatever...   Green might not be able to put it all together. But I think his physical gifts make him worth the risk and the effort. I don't think he'll be ready to play in anything more than a sub role this year, but after some time in, he might be good enough technically to let him go out there and figure the rest out.   And by the way, while he's definitely raw, I think some are overdoing it on how raw he is. His tape is good enough to understand why he was considered such a good prospect. It's not like he's totally lost out there every snap, just crashing into people.
    • How Satisfied are you with Your Team's Draft? Highlight? Low Light?
      OffensivelyPC; We weren't home to watch the draft on the first night and I screwed up the recording so when we got home it wasn't there (my VERY bad!!!!)  We watched it live on the internet at our daughter's house and didn't get to see the Dallas war room, DANG that would have been fun ;-)  Thanks for sharing that, it makes my day!   I like Luck a lot, so I hope that OLine will improve and he'll have a chance to become all he can be - and stay in one piece while doing it.
    • TJ Green: Scouting Proile
      Dustin did this. While I watch a lot of game tape I have not found the patience to take the time to be as thorough as Dustin is typing things out...Though we don't always agree. Could I do it? Yes but its a lot of work to type it all out even after you watch a lot of games on a guy. Credit goes to Dustin, As usual he does a great job
    • Making Sense of the OL
      I thought what they were doing with the line was obvious. Clark at RG and Haeg at RT in the future. Blythe is the backup center to Kelly.
