Vick Ballard

Recommended Posts

How does everyone think Ballard will fair this weekend? I'd love for him to have a big game, both in the rushing and recieving end. I'm sure Carter will get some work in but I can see Ballard being utilized quite a bit this game.

Ballard will be okay...I'm worried about Carter....fumbles could absolutely lose this game that we should and must win. I have zero questions about Carter's talent and ability to run but his past ball security issues make me nervous (while at the same time I'm excited to see Carter get a chance....I remember a run against N.O. last year that wowed me).

I wish we had a Sam "the bam" Cunningham guy. The older guys know who I am tlking about. He was the patriots goal line back and he would just jump over everybody and land in the end zone.

As I said, I'm excited to see him play, i have confidence in his running and I don't hold the fumbles from last year against him. I think the only way the Titans win is if we shoot ourselves in the foot by turning the ball over and past is prolog so it makes me a little nervous.

Sgt Carter will be fine. If he aint gettin' it up the middle, Ballard sure as shootin' aint. Oh, disregard this post, if he fumbles.

I type with only one hand

I don't know if that's out of desire, or necessity.

If out of necessity, I apologize, but would have no way of knowing, and would mean no malice.

'twas just a little joke, having noticed that you often reply with one, or few words.

Peace.

Carter actually was very good in college about holding onto the ball. Not sure why they hit him last year. But I actually wish he would get more carries. He always seems to push the pile.

I think Ballard will run for 89 yards this week.

Coming from a Spread Offense at Miss. State he ran a lot of Draw Plays. Couple outside runs not many. But he'll get better as time goes on

I think Ballard will have a solid game. 19 carries for 73 yards no rushing TD's, with 3 rec for 27 yards and 1 TD. Now i'm really hoping Luck tears it up. I'm playing him over Matty Ice for my round 1 playoffs. #Let'sGetLUCKy

IMO Ballard is the first legit NFL caliber RB we've had since the Edge. I'm still holding out hope for Carter, but Ballard is yet another notch in Grigson's belt.

I loved Addai's dexterity and stylish moves, but he didn't have the power or durability to hack out a niche.

Ballard will only be as Good as the offensive line allow him to be

I like Ballard , but as u say ( though he can at time break tackles etc ), our OL sure has to be there to not just open holes but block down field as well for him to be consistent

Great 5th round Pick

What makes Ballard any more legit then Brown or Carter? His 2 fumbles or 1 touchdown through 12 games (8 of which are starts)

BEAST!

I've been his biggest fan since we drafted him. Glad hes getting the touches. This guy is going to be huge when we get an oline.

Just watch him, like, today. He's a pounder, straight and decisive.

How can you not see it......?

I don't agree with the criticism of Brown, or necessarily even Carter. But I've always thought Ballard would be a better pro runner than both. And he's taken full advantage of his opportunity these past few weeks.

He would've had more TDs if Carter didn't come in and vulture away his TD runs. He's done all the work and the coaches take him out in the opponent 10 yard lines.

Also, you're clearly bias with Brown. You want him to succeed soo badly that you want to ignore what Ballard has done.

I do....at times, I like him alot he is a hard running Back, My thing is what has Brown done to lose his #1 Back spot, Im not trying to discredit anything Ballard has done but he has done fumbled twice while sharing the load (even though if I remember right both were recovered)meanwhile Brown has not fumbled since his rookie year. Regardless who starts I like them both and support the Colts no matter what of course, But seems like Brown is getting a raw deal even though such is life sometimes

Being outplayed by Ballard. And one of those fumbles was recovered by us. He's no where near Carter in terms of worrying about fumbling on any given run.

When we don't run the ball out of condensed formations with motion to the playside, we actually gain positive yardage. Whoda thunkit?

Ballard night have more fumbles than Brown but his receiving hands look better.

Both are as good as the O line allows bit I think Ballard has a legit claim to be #1 on the depth chart right now.

Well, I have to listen to the Colts instead of watching them on TV ( this is laziness on my part, I'm sure there is a bar in Chicago that has the Colts on) and according to whoever is doing the gamecast Ballard is now 'The Dagger' :rock: . This makes me incredibly happy since I have long wanted to see the Colts have the ability to pound out the last few minutes of a game when they have the lead.
