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.

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.

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

    • The most important factor that distinguishes teams in the playoffs is not just an elite QB or elite D, it is an elite coach, IMO. An elite coach with an elite QB or an elite D can do more damage than just the elite QB or elite D themselves, IMO.   Coaching decisions are so critical with field positioning and using the right personnel and preparation (whether it is for crowd noise, prepared for plays that a team may have run just 4 or 5 times the entire year, for throwing 50 times vs running 50 times, or for going up tempo or slowing down tempo and shrinking the game and possessions, calling a gutsy onside kick, preparing for Hail Mary, even taking a safety for field position etc.)
    • Just wish he would actually read what everyone is posting instead of reading what he wants to see and making outlandish statements. Lol
    • Tough call.   An elite QB can win you allot of regular season games and get you to the playoffs nearly every year.   That gives you a shot and if your "D" can play well in the playoffs, a Superbowl may be in the cards.     An elite "D" can also get you to the playoffs, but not as easily.   Low scoring games can go either way many times.  However, if you make the playoffs, there is a good shot at advancing.   That is assuming that instead of an elite QB, you have a decent one.   Osweiller doesn't make that list.   It's a tough question if you factor in extremes.     Mid 2000's:  Peyton Manning and Indy's defense or Flacco and Baltimore's defense?   Maybe Peyton and Baltimore's defense.   What would Flacco have done with Indy's defense?
    • Alshon Jeffrey would be a good pick up if we weren't already loaded at WR between Hilton, Moncrief, Rogers and dorsett. I see us maybe trying out a couple undrafted guys in training camp though. Couldn't hurt. We wont be seeing Jeffrey in a colts uniform though.
