There's a reason Carter doesnt play.....to many fumbles

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.

Being outplayed by Ballard is debatable at this point, Pre injury Brown was averaging more ypc and total yards, but since the injury Ballard has had most of the carries, Ballard still has yet to score his first rushing touchdown. Hey I love watching Ballard out there, He had a great game out there and even better once you take into consideration our O Line play, but before the Satele injury and Olsen went down Ballard wasn't getting much, I think Ballard certainly has potential to be our #1 but I dont think he is there yet

I know, Carter has 4 now unfortunately(for his career 25 games) Ballard has 2 through 12 games, Brown has 1 through 50 games

He scored a rushing TD last week. He could've had alot more if Carter didn't come in and vulture them away, something i've told you a few times already. And no it's not debatable. After a hot start, Brown cooled down and became a non-factor. It's the opposite for Ballard. The 2nd half of the season is more important than the first 6 games.

    • We just invested a high pick in Ya-Sin and money in Desir.  I don't see any point in the near future where Ballard would spend a first round pick for any CB.  Especially one that then has to be signed to a huge contract.
    • Did Deion Jones play much in 2nd half of the SB?   He's very good.
    • Bruce Anderson out with David Williams in. Seems the club is churning out weekly rb's since pre season to find the right fit.   Anderson was 5'11 209 lbs while Williams brings much more size at 6'1 229 lbs.  Drafted by Denver in 2018 ended up in Jville where he got 36 rush yards on 8 carries over 6 games. Good short yardage SEC back with South Carolina for 3 years before transfering and having his best season for Arkansas as a senior ( 5.6 yard per carry and 8 tds).   With Jonthan Williams still not seeing the field wonder if he will be promoted in a week or 2 if coaches like what they see from him.
    • I feel that a heavily run-oriented offense was always the plan for these early season games.  The OL worked out so well last year, we think we can be that kind of line that just enforces its will and is dominating by the 4th quarter.  It also serves the purpose of letting Brissett get his legs under him and build some confidence.  I think that as the weeks go on he’ll throw more (and farther downfield) and we’ll be the kind of offense that can take whatever the defense gives us...
    • I buy into some of that, but that is not all.   There are many players on teams that have done worse but it is overlooked because of their talent.  Apparently there are no coaches or GM's who this Kelly has the talent to overcome a misdemeanor that already had the punishment served.
